I caved and got the first of the Power of the Primes Dinobots when the second restock appeared on Kapow. It’s mad that they didn’t pack Grimlock with a weapon (here I’ve repurposed the sword from the ZhanJiang OS KO).
Grimlock’s probably the weakest of the three, especially in dino mode. But it’s easy to forget just how blown away our childhood minds would have been with a set of Dinobots that are so well articulated and authentic to the G1 models.
I will complete the set for sure (Slash aside), even though I’m going to be picking and choosing when it comes to POTP. I’ll grab the leader Optimus as soon as I’m able, and possibly Rodimus. But that may be the extent of it – providing I can resist Predaking!
I’m still not sure if I prefer him to MP-08, but Fanstoys Grinder is certainly a looker.
