  1. Great review! I loved seeing the comparison shots! My favorite Grimlock line – War Within: “Me Grimlock…badass.”

  2. G2 Grimlock was my first transformer, so this guy has a special place in my heart. Great review and love seeing him with the updated versions. It goes really well with the MP Grimlock.

  3. Once again the Classics mold gets left in the dust. Have you ever checked out the WST one that came out several years ago? I highly recommend it. It was one of the very, very early third party toys. They did all the Dinobots and they’re spot on to the G1 toys, except that they stand maybe 2-3 inches tall. They even improved the molds in a few ways, I seem to recall that Grimlock’s robot head was able to slide forward so it doesn’t sit as far back as on the G1 toy.

    • I’ve heard quite a bit of buzz about the WST figures, especially the Dinobots. The sliding head fix would be perfect for the G1 toy. Maybe I’ll need to check these figures out.

  4. Meanwhile… I am still working on the “Top 10″ wish list thanks to you. ;) (Long story short: Japan exclusive G1 Commanders – Series and/or Function.) But besides that, I think Henkei!/Classics Grimlock is my very least favorite mold. I mean ever among the entire G1 line-ups. He makes me think of that bear that wears boots in “Pearls Before Swine.”

    Then again, looking at the Masterpiece makes me hope that TOMY will consider doing a scaled version of that figure. Hopefully for their ALL SPARK manga series (which has an incarnation of G1 Megatron that I actually like).
