Transformers: Age of Extinction Target Exclusive Silverknight Optimus Prime and Grimlock 2-Pack

So, I think this might be the best Age of Extinction toy yet.  Odd that it includes absolutely no new molding, isn’t it?

For details on the Generations Voyager Grimlock mold, please see my previous blog here.

Not sure if I ever did a full review on this mold.  This was originally the Transformers: Dark of the Moon Walmart Exclusive Deluxe Optimus Prime.  I love the new paintjob.  He is almost entirely in chrome in vehicle mode, the only exceptions being the back side of the cab and the fender over his rearmost wheel.  That last wheel folds into the one in front in robot mode.  I am wondering it they could not chrome that due to it having to fit into a small space.  The red flames on the chrome looks awesome.  In robot mode he loses a little of the awesome since they did not chrome his arms and upper legs, but that is forgivable.  Instead of his grotesque Mec Tech weapon he comes with a G1 Predacon sword in silver plastic.

Finally, the Generations Grimlock we all wanted!  Not only does he have gold chrome, but his hips and waist have been painted red like the G1 toy.  He really looks amazing, and the original Generations Grimlock looks pathetic by comparison.

Thanks for reading!
