Me Grimlock, Classic!

Posted by:

Before all the fame completely goes to his head when he becomes a "Masterpiece" (2009) and even before he got Animated, he was just a "Classic!"  Staying with our Dinobot theme of the week, check out the Classics Grimlock page, linked in the 2007 Transformers Section.  It's not *all* new, (we did have a jump box and package art available previously) but it has been completely revamped with photo gallery, instructions scans and character description from the pages of Transformers Collectors' Club official Magazine.  See, I told ya I'd get back these pages eventually!  :)

I have also updated the 2007 Instructions Archive with another dozen or so images I've been meaning to get to for awhile such as Classics Constructicon Devastator, Movie Optimus Prime (Twin Blaster) ... and more.

Him, Grimlock cool.

What's Movie Optimus Prime "Twin Blaster"?
Perceptor said,  - 2008-11-14 11:04:59
That Movie voyager OP toy, that they made about 4 different color versions of, Target version, regular, battle damage, now in a movie versus pack...

Oh yeah. I forgot that that was the Japanese name of that toy. In the U.S. it was just called Voyager class Optimus Prime.

I just wish they had released the other Dinobots for the Classics line, maybe we'll get them in the Universe 2008 line, but I don't know. They did such a fantastic job on Grimlock, it seems a shame not to do the same for the other four.

Not the best Grimlock
Hey Perceptor, do you want me to send you some photos of Cybertron and energon Optimus Prime and supreme Starscream so you can update your site even more.

First things first, shoot me an e-mail Mightwork (w/o pix).

Hey, isn't there a fifth version of Voyager class Optimus?
I do remember Hasbro releasing some of the movie figures with more G1 inspired color schemes (with Optimus being a solid blue and red semi, no flames). This isn't the Target exclusive, is it? I'm positive I've seen him at Wal-Mart.
As for Grimlock, I didn't care that much for the Classics version since it was too much of a departure from the way the original figure was designed (with Classics having the dino head for feet and all). I'm still waiting for that Grimlock figure that is (what I consider anyway) true to the G1 version (without looking cartoony like Animated Grimlock does, other wise I'd settle for him) and at the same time, wouln't put a huge dent in my wallet...

Cool this is like the first classics character page! Lets see some more ;D

Shoot! I need that version of Grimlock!
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-11-14 19:05:11

1. Yes. You're thinking of First Strike Optimus Prime. The five versions of Voyager Prime: Robo-Vision, regular, First Strike, battle-damaged, and Freeway Brawl.

2. I too am waiting for a true-to-G1 Grimlock. The Upcoming MP-08 Grimlock does fit the bill to that, but, it's too big to go with the other G1 figures.

Masterpiece Dinobots. All 5 of them would be awsome. Put that under never gonna happen.
Overhaul said,  - 2008-11-14 20:56:11
This always bugged me, but is there anything about Robo-Vision Prime other than a paint scheme? I have the regular movie Voyager Prime (a very cool Voyager class figure, and fits the bill since I didn't want to pay about twice as much for the leader class). But i got the impression there was some type of additional gimmick, hence the "Robo-vision" part of the name?
As for your comment about all five Dinobots as Masterpiece figures KilledbyDeath, I hope you're willing to drop at least have a G on that, since they'd almost certainly be mad expensive. Although an awesome sight to behold never the less.

If i got the animated Grimlock, i would be satisfied with him being my truest-to-G1 figure.

The thing about Robo-Vision Optimus Prime was not just his color scheme, but he came with a Robo-Vision Decoder: a piece of transluscent red paper that was used to reveal special codes and passwords back during the Robo-Vision promotion at Target.

For a better description of Robo-Vision, go here:

Forget about masterpeice grimlock. cool character but not masterpeice worthy.
These are the 4 figures that should in the masterpeice series
1) Galvatron
2) Unicron
3) a 4 foot tall fortress maximus - just kidding
4) Devastator with the orginal 6 constructicons.
Perceptor said,  - 2008-11-16 22:08:56
I have to agree with Wheelie on that. If they wanted to do a true masterpiece, it would be 6 to-scale construction vehicles that transform into the original 6 Constructicons and Devastator. *That* would be a masterpiece.
