Blog #1502: Toy Review: Transformers: Studio Series Leader Grimlock

Transformers: Studio Series Leader Grimlock

Comparison photos are with the Age of Extinction Platinum Edition Leader Grimlock which is a completely different mold.


Dino Mode: It only took four years and way too many repaints of two awful molds (Leader and Voyager) but we finally have a truly awesome movie Grimlock. He looks amazing in tyrannosaurus rex mode. He is mostly black with weathered green-silver paint. He has the proportions of the Age of Extinction Voyager Grimlock with the detail of the Leader Class, and without the stupid long tail. He’s perfect.

Robot Mode: Grimlock is screen accurate in robot mode for the first time. He’s just awesome. One of the really cool things about him is that he has a full tyrannosaurus rex head on each shoulder as opposed to the halves previous toys have had. Only one is the actual dinosaur head, the other splits in half and becomes the sides of his tail. It’s a really great design.

Overall: Grimlock is about as close to perfect as we can get. It’s a shame it took so long to get him, but I’m glad to have him. Grimlock is a must.

Thanks for reading!
