Blog #975: Toy Review: Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2015) Stomp & Chomp Grimlock

Hasbro repainted the Age of Extinction Stomp & Chomp Grimlock in RID colors.  While that is not entirely unexpected, the absolutely cheap way in which they did it sucks.  They didn’t bother give it a new head, so it looks idiotic as RID Grimlock, and they left out the Optimus Prime figure rather than making one that looked like RID Optimus Prime, so essentially you get less toy for the same money.  I know most things will get repainted, and in some cases a straight repaint is fine.  But for something this expensive to not even get a new head to make it minimally passable disgusts me.  If they had just given it a new head, it wouldn’t be bad.  They certainly did a nice job on his paint scheme.

Overall: Wait for clearance or skip completely.

Thanks for reading!

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
