My Grimlock Collection, Robot Mode

March 8th, 2013

Last week I made a post assembling all my Grimlocks in one collection pic. That featured all figures in their alt modes. As promised, I have since transformed them all to robots and here they are today. In G1, the Dinobot leader spent most of his time as a T-Rex. But as a robot he looks equally impressive.

Sorry for the crappy pic. I should have known better than to take pics with my phone. I would have re-taken it with a real camera, but I already put away some of the Grimlocks here. This pic will have to do. Grimlock is not one to smile for the cameras anyway.

In robot form, some of these toys start to show their weakness. I’m not particularly impressed with the robot modes of the Alternator and Classic figures. It’s funny, I found no issue when these figs were released. It’s no accident that these 2 are the oldest figures here. I guess things just keep getting better, and I’m getting spoiled by what the toys are capable of today. The arms on the Titanium figure are way too skinny. And as for Animated Grimlock, the arms seem too long and the legs seem too short. MP and FOC have perfect robot modes, IMO. But like I mentioned in the alt mode collection post, FOC Grimlock’s dino mode is so-so at best. This only leaves MP as the perfect Grimlock. And rightfully so, considering the MP label and the price tag.

Go Grimlock! Transform and Roll Out.

    I’ve got the only two worth getting if you ask me FOC Grimlock and MP Grimlock…..Grimlock is an awesome character.

      Yeah those 2 are my favorites here. BTW, I just transformed the Alternator back to a Mustang. That was a pain in the butt! I’m probably never gonna transform him again, for as long as I have him. Even the MP feels easy compared to the Alternator.

        I need to dust my MP Grimlock off and Transform him sometime soon, he’s a pretty awesome figure glad to have picked him up.

        I’ve never bothered with the Alternator line I think…wait I did get like 3 of them before I got tired of them.

    I think Alternator Grimlock is weaker than the classics version, if only because of the degree of difficulty getting him into alt mode. That and mine just doesn’t want to stand upright. Great blog, btw!

      hey optimalomega, thx! Welcome to my blog. I think I’ve seen your name floating around other TF blogs and forums. Yeah I used to hold Alternator/Binaltech Grimlock in very high regard, but after all these years, better Grimlocks have come out. Kinda makes me wonder how I feel about other Alternator figures now in 2013 🙂
