At least that is the common answer back when I was a kid. I just could not find a little boy that did not like dinosaurs in some way, shape or form.
So, again, I got inspired by Flywheels' blog. Recently, he has been talking about Dinoforce, the robots that make up Dinoking. Since I have talked about Dinoking to.... the .... death, I decided to talk about Dinobots!
This is #3 of 36 in my massive lot haul. And we start with none other than Dinobot Commander - Grimlock, who is designated 26- Grimlock.
Grimlock in dinosaur mode, robot mode and in Japanese box. See, I said boys liked dinosaurs, no?
Some boxed shots of this very mint piece.
Some flap crease....

This seems to be the silver missiles version (there is a golden missiles version)
More to come, keep a look out!
I can still remember buying Grimlock from a store called Service Merchandise with money I had won from a car dealership contest. I still have this figure in my collection to date!ReplyDelete
I still have my 1985 USA boxed Grimlock from after I passed my school exams. Bought for me by my uncle.Delete
What a nice piece! I don't know if it is the same with the Japanese version, but the American Grimlock is very hard to find boxed. Everybody loves this guy. His AFA prices are off the charts. I can't say I blame them though, what little kid wouldn't want one of these?ReplyDelete
I don't think these are so hard to find. I've seen many many Jap Grimlocks in my time. True that everyone loves this guy, so I guess a nice MISB USA boxed Grimmers would be hard to find for AFA....Delete
Like I said, all boys like dinosaurs... haha
