Transformers Deluxe Classic Grimlock
Out of stock|
|CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.|
GRIMLOCK keeps a collection of the parts he's torn off his DECEPTICON enemies. His super-thick ultramantium skin - in both robot and dinosaur mode - is coated in energy-absorbing materials, making him nearly impervious to damage. There are many who might say much the same thing about his mind. He is actually quite smart, but a programming flaw in his speech centers gives him only the most basic communications skills. He dislikes the weak, but is dedicated to the protection of those he views as lesser creatures. The only thing he hates more than weakness, in fact, is those who exploit the weak. Amazing robot figure changes into detailed dino beast and back! Figure features a firing projectile and a tail that becomes a smashing whip!

Grimlock is available more inexpensively as part of the set of 6 figures or part of a full case of 8 figures
Grimlock is packed only 1 per case
True to the Grimlock character, his keen strategic mind is obfuscated by his crude speech patterns
He retains his distaste for weakness, while being driven by a greater hatred for those who prey upon the weak

Completely different transformation than original toy Mar 02, 2007
By Derek Weber
This toy is very much more articulated than the original toy, in legs, neck, tail, in short just about everything. This also meant that the transformation mode also was modified to accompany the new features.
In my own opinion, it's a very solid toy, but not quite the type to give to a child under 7 yrs. Too complicated. Otherwise, it's great, sturdy, and after a bit of practice, transforms nicely. Looks great next to Prime (Voyager) and Ultra Magnus (Voyager).

An interesting update Jul 17, 2007
By J. Busen
With my Transformers nostalgia running high due to the recent movie, I picked this up on a whim, along with Deluxe Classic Ramjet. Though it took me a while to warm up to this figure, I've been quite happy with it overall.
Both the dinosaur and robot modes look very good, and the dinosaur mode has quite a bit of flexibility. The figure is a bit of a departure from the traditional look of Grimlock, but it retains the essential look of the character. I actually prefer the dinosaur form on this figure than the one on the original figure, and I like the way the two weapons lock into the back of the figure in robot mode.
The transformation is a bit complicated, since you have to swivel the dinosaur's hips and legs around to form the robot's arms. It took me a couple of tries to get everything right, and I still have to look at the manual to make sure I'm getting everything right. I am also not terribly fond of the feet in robot mode. They are someone thin, and though the figure seems to balance well, it is not as stable as some other figures in this line.
Overall, I am happy with my purchase. The transformation is a little more complicated than some of the other figures in this line, but the figure gets high marks overall, especially for its great dinosaur mode.

Great review of a classic character Jul 30, 2007
By B. D. Wong
I own both the first released and this modern version of Grimlock.
This second version is much better articulated than the first one.
The T-rex mode is superior to the prevoious one, especially by its posture and articulated tail.
I like the fact that no item or weapon stays out both in robot and T-rex versions.
Overall he is quite sturdy and true to the spirit of the original version with a plus.

Me, Grimlock kick butt! Me, Grimlock king! May 20, 2011
By zombie destroyer
I was born in 1984, which means i'm as old as Optimus Prime, Megatron, The Dinobots, etc. Generation 1 transformers was a great series, so I grew up collecting transformers from every generation, and watching everything transformers. The cival war between heroic Autobots, and evil Decepticons was my "Star Wars". Now this "classics" figure is a great reboot of the Grimlock my generation knew and loved. better articulation than the G1 version, including an articulated tail. With or without his blaster on his t-rex back, he still looks like a zoid, the Berserk Fury resembles his beast mode best. plus the t-rex head resembles that of Mechagodzilla, and he has the G1 rub sign on him, his t-rex arms are on a ball joint, leg articulation is much like a real t-rex, his mouth opens, plus he can look up and down. his paint scheme is very g1-esque, due to his complex transformation, i recommend him for adult collectors only, a 5 yr old might break him. in robot mode, the front half of the t-rex becomes his robot legs, however, like in g1, his t-rex legs become his robot arms, his blaster has a firing missile which shoots far, and a blade on the barrel, so you can have him do to a Decepticon, what Revenge of the Fallen Megatron did to Optimus in the forest battle, and his t-rex tail becomes a whip, much like beast wars transmetal Megatron's t-rex tail, with a little creativity, the gem on his robot chest can serve as a spark crystal, and his tail can have that charge cannon feature as transmetal megatron's. and there's great light piping in both modes and his weapons can be stored in both modes as well.
Great toy! Nov 24, 2012
I bought this for my fiance for Christmas. He collects Transformers, and I think this will be an amazing edition. I can't wait for Christmas!
