The Best Grimlock Toys, Ranked

List RulesVote up your favorite versions of the Autobots' greatest Dinobot.

While other Transformers waste time turning into fancy cars or pickup trucks, Grimlock heads straight for the good stuff and transforms directly into a towering robot dinosaur. Grimlock hasn't been quite as present in the recent films and TV series as some of his Autobot compatriots (it can be difficult to write a massive Tyrannosaurus Rex into every story), but several different versions of Grimlock toys have been popular since the 1980s. 

And while many versions of Grimlock understandably focus on his transformation into the terrifying T-Rex, some of the coolest Grimlock toys (including both official and third party designs) have been alternates like raptors or even a Ford Mustang. The leader of the Dinobots is full of surprises is what we're trying to say.

But what is the greatest Grimlock version? Well, we've made a list of some of the best Grimlock toys ever made, but it's up to you all to vote and determine which one is the best. Don't see your favorite Grimlock? Add him to the list!
