RID Stomp n Chomp Grimlock sighting

Hot on the heels of the official images, RID 2015 Stomp n Chomp Grimlock has been sighted at US retail. This first sighting comes from a TRU in Kansas City, MO so he should be popping up all over the place shortly. We also have news of the online listing which in turn provides us with his price tag which is a hefty $79.99. The scannable sticker for the RID2015 mobile game can be found on his transformation handle on his back (it wasn’t on the figure in the stock images, so we felt it worthy to point out). This sticker, for those who aren’t aware of this feature of the game, can be scanned by mobile devices, allowing you to play as that version of that character.

Happy hunting, TFW!

TAV Stepper

Thanks to fellow board member, BattleUpSaber, we have a new pic of TAV Stepper!  This image was found on TF-TF’s Twitter Page, you can also see the image here. According to the description, the picture came from a catalog packaged with the toys, and that Stepper will use the TAV Jazz mold, feature a more G1 head sculpt, and will be packaged with a TAV Sideswipe.

So what do you think of this figure?

RID Stomp n Chomp Grimlock 03

Thanks to Boards member Driskull98, we finally have stock images of the Robots In Disguise 2015 version of the Age of Extinction Stomp n’ Chomp Grimlock! This titanic T-Rex was teased a while back in the official Robots In Disguise game app as one of the many different playable versions of Grimlock. Judging by these stock images, there doesn’t seem to be any mold changes so he’ll be a straight-up repaint of the original AOE figure in his RID 2015 color scheme.

No price or release date has been revealed as of yet, but in the meantime, check out the official images we’ve mirrored after the jump!

Dinoichi Shell 04

In FansProject fashion the third party group has been hard at work today dropping a ton of news at once. In addition to their color prototype images of Severo, we’ve got our first really good look at the Dinosaur pretender shell that Dinoichi can be stored in or ride atop.

Named Tricerabot, it is still unclear as to how these will be offered to collectors. Rumors were floating around during TFcon Toronto that they will be sold separately from the figures themselves, but no confirmation is available at this time.

Check out the prototype images after the jump!
