    Well I can see that the dino arm armament is not folded up like it's supposed to be. But for the rest of it, I don't know what you're referring to.

    Out of ALL the studio series Grimlock dino mode pics on the net, he pics the single one, which is mistransformed and makes it a drama.

    And all the pics have been circulating online for a while now, so it's not like he couldnt have known.

    Even humans have a complex network of muscles so that their faces can articulate, it's just conveniently covered by and elastic cover.

    I hate it when people take the one pic that shows something incorrectly or from a bad angle and turns it into a "Definitive" problem. I've seen it before, so I'm not referring specifically to this guy.

    Your frenzied defence of the figure aside, what I'm wondering is if the arm section, by virtue of being attached to the head, will be linked to the head articulation and disconnect from the rest of the body when the head is posed.

    Yeeeeaaaah...here’s the thing, this, while looking amazing, is a mainline toy. So what I’m saying is, you can have articulation, or accuracy, they chose accuracy.

    My problem with BB Prime was the wheels on his upper leg tend to get in the way and push against his torso causing it to pop loose. Otherwise, he's articulated fine.

    Anyways, the price of the Takara version has recently been listed on several online sites for only $64.99, so it seems like the US version will have the standard $45-50 price range.

    ...man. screen-accurate coloring makes grimlock hella visually boring. makes me appreciate the original supposed-to-be-$20 AoE toy\'s coloring a lot more; even if it\'s not accurate, at least he doesn\'t just sorta all blend together in a mass of grey.

    I had to make this into a gif because seeing this figure stirs up so much fan passion that I don't know what to do!

    I am so confused by the shoulders on this guy. They both look like full t-rex heads, but...what, how?

    Anyways, him and Blackout man...I need them in my life. I can't believe they actually finally nailed this guy so well.

    There are two heads. You can clearly see the second head in the tail section of the T-rex.

    The right shoulder turns inside out and becomes part of the lower back, the left shoulder is the actual head
