    Grimlock used his sword in Season 3, Madman's Paradise, the episode with exiled Quintesson wizard.

    These are based on the movie though as far as I’m aware and he didn’t use his sword in it at any point.

    It's been debated so much and you can have your opinions on whether these '86 movie characters deserve to be in Studio Series or not but I have to admit these look really good.

    Jazz and Grimlock are especially nice. I love Studio Series for the live action movie characters but I can genuinely say I'm happy for all the G1 fans because those figures truly look like definitive verisons of the characters.

    I think they did it this way cause of the fact 2 major anniversaries happen at once and I think Hasbro were being cautious over the fact BW may not hold a line on its own hence both in Kingdom and they knew G1 purists wouldnt necessarily get the BW figures so added these to the SS line so they get their money that way. Its quite clever on their parts tbh

    here they are looking a little less squished. Not perfect, but Grimlock's proportions look real good.

    They all look great, I find Grimlock's proportions a bit wonky, but I'm all game for SS86 Dinobots.

    Blackout is an MH-53 Pave Low, while Grindor is a CH-53E Super Stallion. Both helos look similar, but have different roles, with the latter being much larger. I believe Blackout was blue while Grindor was gray?

    So glad I resisted spending money on the Legends Blurr. This one looks great so far, and not hindered by the Headmaster gimmick.

    Jazz looks spot-on as well. Looks like he just has a gun. Wishing for speakers, but not disappointed.

    Grimlock looks freaking amazing. This gives me high hopes for the rest of the team since Slag was already mentioned earlier. Though, wasn't one of them missing from the movie? Can't remember.
    It'd be nice having the Dinobots without the Combiner gimmick getting in the way.

    This. The Dinobot toy colors are among my favorite things from G1, and it just looks cheap when you switch from gold to yellow. And not even a good yellow. Give the low res picture I can't really get excited about the other figures either, so for me it's a bit of a downer.

    Not sure why any of anyone outside of Hasbro would be upset about leaked information or images. Certainly not to the point of "for fucks sake" levels of expressed grief.

    But then, I am someone who fails to see the hype in Shameless Self-Promotion Cons. This isn't the early days of accepted geekdom. This isn't even the age of having to be in the same room or building anymore to enjoy a united fandom.

    Honestly, I don't even know if Hasbro should be that upset. Not like this is a new toyline heading into an overly competitive market where someone could legally swoop in and steal their idea and get product to the shelf before them. I as a company, I would probably only be upset if a leaked idea were something that had been canceled or postponed or still in early development that might undergo considerable change before hitting the market. Having fans pine over what could've been in early test shots may be bad for business but these are near ready to hit shelves.

    This can only and apparently does generate hype and desired ownership. Better, this is time and money Hasbro doesn't have to waste on promoting new stuff by organizing FanCon. But since they already have, those excited to see more about these leaked images are certainly going to do what they can to learn more when available.

    Sure, it might crash the market on an older version of a character but Hasbro doesn't care about that. They made their money the first time you bought older product.

    If anything, the third party sees that Hasbro is about to release x product and winds up shelving their own idea for a few months to well, how long did it take for FT to bring back the idea of Acousticwave?

    Nope, don't see the downside to leaked images from a fan perspective.

    Unless, maybe I had wasted money on the Headmaster versions of all these characters. Then I might feel burned.

    Snarl was in two scenes, but we know we are getting all of the dinobots.

    I think doing a new starscream would be completely redundant. They've gone as far as possible with him/

    My exact thoughts on grimlock. I dont know if i want to paint the gold on myself, or wait for the inevitable repaint.

    calm down, man, they're all numbered 86 so the spots arent technically wasted
