Affiliation: Loosely associated with the Autobots, but primarily loyalty lies with the Dinobots
Function: Dinobot Commander
First Cartoon Appearance: none, perhaps will be included in a future Hasbro.com " webisode"
First Comics Appearance: Transformers Collectors' Club, The Official Magazine, Issue #13 (comic story portion)
Based on the Transformers Club and Botcon comics portrayal of
the "Classics-verse" it is certainly easy to imagine that the story of figures of the Classics/Universe line
is in fact an 'alternate reality/dimension.'
Character profile as published in Transformers Collector Club, Official Magazine, Issue 13 Feb/March 2007:
official character profile from package tech spec: "Me Grimlock!" Grimlock keeps a collection of the parts he's torn off his Decepticon enemies. His super-thick ultramantium skin in both robot and dinosaur mode is coated in energy absorbing materials making him nearly impervious to damage. There are many who might say much the same thing about his mind. He is actually quite smart, but a programming flaw in his speech centers gives him only the most basic communications skills. He dislikes the weak, but is dedicated to the protection of those he views as lesser creatures. The only thing he hates more than weakness, in fact, is those who exploit the weak.
To the left, the art of professional graphic artist Matt Kuphaldt, who was nice enough to share with us some of his work including other Transformers illustrations on his official website.
|Bibliography of significant appearances: This version of Grimlock plays a somewhat major role in the "Classics-verse" comic series published by Master Collector and the organizers of Botcon. Unfortunately, the toy was not used in the re-done G1 "IDW-verse."|
