Robosen Grimlock coronation day at SDCC

Witness the Dinobot king's coronation at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC).

Hasbro and Robosen have announced Transformers Grimlock Auto-Converting Robot - Flagship Collector's Edition.

“We invite fans and collectors to embrace the future of robotics and experience the unmatched craftsmanship and innovation with our latest edition to our collection,” said Sean Tang, Director of Robosen USA. “We’re excited for them to own the most powerful Dinobot in the world.”

G1 Grimlock voice actor Gregg Berger has returned to lend his voice to this auto-converting app-enabled robot, which has been 7 years in the making! Grimlock joins Transformers Robosen Optimus Prime and is available for pre-order on Hasbro Pulse.

“Robosen continues to impress me with their cutting-edge tech masterpieces. The state-of-the-art engineering on this incredible new Grimlock robot represents the Transformers brand in a way that has never been done before—until today, and we’re excited to showcase the beloved Dinobot for our passionate fans at San Diego Comic-Con,” said Casey Collins, President of Global Licensed Consumer Products and Business Development, Hasbro. “Our Transformers Robosen line proves our ongoing commitment to innovation and powering the imagination of future generations for years to come.”

12-year-old me would be awestruck unboxing Robosen Grimlock on Christmas Day - technology has progressed since my Tomy Omnibot in the mid-eighties. Due to the cost of living crisis, I won't find Grimlock under the Christmas tree this holiday season.

What do you think? Would you spend $1499 on a robotic Grimlock? Let me know in the comments below.


  1. "Me Grimlock no bozo. Me king!"

    King of the toys, most definitely. Following on from the amazing Optimus Prime transforming toy comes the mighty Grimlock.

    Growing up in the 70/80s, it blows my mind to see toys like this. Big Trak and Armatron were the zenith of our playtimes, no bad thing, but this new breed of toy robots would be munching on their metal (figuratively speaking, as they were plastic).

    Clearly the price puts them way beyond the average child, or adult for that matter. But what they demonstrate is how technology trickles down, and that can only be a good thing for future playtimes.

    1. Great points! Alas, I never owned Big Trak despite asking Santa!
