    Holy sweet mother of Shockwave's humongous drill worm thing, that's quite possibly the most hardcore awesome fucking dinosaur robot I've ever seen in my entire meta-regressed life.

    Well, he will stick out from the line-up like a sore thumb... and mind you I made this before the existence of the Animated, FoC and MP figures.
    Apart from BW Grimmy (and he is just a repaint of another character's toy) they all share the same shape and look, and especially the robot head looks almost the same on each. Heck, apart from the pretender and classics version, even the transformation is very similar on all Grimlocks.

    And no, RID Grimlock doesn't count... he is a bad name-reuse, much like those Cybertron Shockwave and Sky-Lynx Minicons. :p

    You are funny, me and Mr. Bay's designers are laughing at you. You go and pick the worst Grimlock ever made and compare this Robotic Alien Barbarian design too it. Lol.
    Don't stop now, let me see some more of your way off comparisons. Lol.

    Looks awesome! Reminds me of an Iron Knuckle from Zelda.

    Haven't really been following this film much, but that does look fantastic, loving how the T-Rex skull forms the shoulders. The feet are a bit......weird though

    Please don't take this the wrong way - you're entitled to your opinion and I can see that this design (or what we can see of it so far) is not everybody's cup of tea - but you may want to stop now.

    Seriously, we're already up to movie FOUR so you should be well aware most robots don't resemble their previous versions that closely - with only some exceptions.

    Next to that, your 'problem' seems to be he will now not fit in your Grimlock line up, and then you go ahead and show/tell that it already features two Grimlocks that are different, whatever excuses you have for those!

    The movie bots are just really different looking, and often simple nameslaps just like Hasbro did during A/E/C. We don't know what Grimlock's personality will be yet, but at least he's a robotic T-Rex with a warrior/brute robot mode- I'd say that's pretty fitting.

    Don't like the design? Cool. Don't want to mess up your shelf with a Grimlock design that doesn't fit? Don't buy it.

    :-/

    Grimlock or not. Bringing up bad comparisons like that makes someone look technically bad.

    Looks very Five Star Stories mech inspired. That is not a bad thing.

    I actually dig all the medieval knights and armor theme going with the designs we have seen revealed thus far. It's a nice departure from Bionicles Bug Faces.
