    Not sure if this is news or not, but I've never seen or heard of this guy before. At the Walmart in Riverdale, UT.

    He and Whirl (race car) were first available on Amazon.com on Sept. 1, but haven't been spotted at an actual store until recently.

    Also available with Grimlock and Whirl is the newer Medix figure, along with reissues of Heatwave (race car), Bumblebee (rock crawler), Chase (police car), and Brushfire, in Academy packaging.

    A Whirl the Flight Bot who turns into an Indy Car and now a Grimlock that turns into a Motorcycle. Hasbro must stop this madness.

    Grimlock's been a Mustang and an excavator already. A t-rex cycle is the logical next step.

    He’s been out in the UK over a week, but I didn’t feel he warranted a post when I saw him.

    That usually happens when an item is out, but people just see it and don't share any info about it. Some users may have seen it weeks ago, but this our first report with photographic proof and store locations on the boards, so this counts as news.

    One would expect it to be the other Grimlock, considering Bumblebee's team is on Earth and they have ties with the big Rescue Bots. But this one looks more like FOC Grimlock, and I like to think he is.

    That response sounds like she was blindsided by the question and didn’t have an answer, which probably means no thought went into it other than “Grimlock”.

    Hopefully I’m wrong.

    Hmm...I picked up both the new Medix and Hot Shot (rescue boat) in June, but didn't see any of Medix's wavemates from wave 2 (listed above), so he (and Hot Shot) had to be part of some revision wave prior to the wave 2 or something.
