Optimus looks like he's riding a tauntaun, JT.
Hasbro did not convey the Bayverse Grimlock like a gaint (long-tailed) dragon or something.
It just made me wonder if Optimus was going to cut Grimlock's belly open and stuff BumbleBee inside? LOL
I saw these in the stores and Grimlock sort of tempted me anyway, but I don't have money to spend on this stuff, and if I gave Transformers my cash, I want the new MP Ultra Magnus.
I agree with you (JT) that no dinobots in neon paint schemes. I think it was Slag (or whatever his name is now) that looked like a good sculpt, as did Scorn - but I don't think I want to spend time ruining the figures with paint that'll peel.
Hasbro needs to do these "premium format style."
I'll see the movie and maybe stay away from the toys.
Also, I can't tell which ones were for kids and what would go in my collection, although I was busy with company at the time I stopped in WalMart.
