I'm happy they have the crown,but a bit sad they didn't go with the Takara Marvel comics blue. I can't wait for him to abuse Wheeljack and send the Protectobots to hunt down traitors . He is much bigger than my deluxes, but not much bigger than Leader Magnus and mightier but but not horribly bigger than CW Prime.
In short - he fits right in.
I will have him take over Cybertron and become King of Cybertron soon. I haven't tried , but I'm hoping FOC Shockwave can be attached to him as an arm cannon somehow . He's going to take over and let Shockwave live - but only as his weapon!
This is, next to Starsaber , the best MP because of playability and how comic accurate he is.
Blows away the ugliness that is beast mode FOC Grimlock . And the size is just right - big, bulky, overbearing.
He has a terrible beast mode, but an awesome robot. He's too small for MP, but too big for classics. Fortunately, Grimlock is the type who still looks good when he's too big. (As opposed to optimus who passes well enough when too small, but looks rediculous when too big)
I agree with you. He's pretty good in a classics display.
