It's a bit better than the early pics suggested. Not so keen on the asymmetry.

He looks like the Beserk Fury from Zoids. More lean and mean than bulky and well Grimlocky?

Still I do like the overall look of him

Wow...for a deluxe, it's very detailed. If they make more of them [a complete classics dinobot set] I'd definitely get them. T-rex mode looks more like a streamlined velociraptor.

He looks very good, only I'm not quite certain I like the head being the feet. All things considered though, it's better than having a big head just lying on his back. I do like the gold highlights and the red works well. Poseable tail will be quite nice too.

The only asymmetry appears to be on the chest, so I don't see the problem there personally.

This is one of those figures I'm going to have to be holding to judge, and most likley one I won't like until I've played with it a while. Robot mode looks semi-all right. Dino mode's about that same as that.

Yeh, that's really putting me off too. Which is a shame - knees-up, that's a superb figure.

He isn't exactly the same as the original, therefore it's awful and pointless and Hasbro hate me. DAMN THEM.

It's a bit odd that they had to do a brand new transformation scheme for this. I mean, even Energon Grimlock used the 'classic' transformation and it worked.

Energon Grimlock had a certain Playskool quality in t-rex mode.

True, but the Energon Grimlock did have more off the classic feel to him and I also liked Swoop he had a good transformation o him. I also hope they make all 5 to have a complete set.

Yes.

Still one of the best TF figures ever, IMO.



Liking it more. Pic's from a live auction, so I won't link...
