"XM Studios is excited to present our next Transformers Premium Collectibles series statue, Grimlock! Immortalized in amazingly detailed 1:10 scale cold-cast porcelain, each painstakingly handcrafted statue is individually hand-painted with the famous XM quality finish. Crafted from scratch, every nut, bolt and wire is lovingly designed and sculpted ground up by a team in mad love with the Transformers G1 era of cartoons. Inspired by one of our childhood favorite 80s cartoons, we took the G1's iconic form design and XMized them with modern details, to better fit in today's expectations of sophisticated robotry designs. We have spared no effort and designing these original pieces took our core team almost 2 years, resulting in an amazing balance of retro beauty with sleek modern details. What's a transformer without it's alternate mode? Yes, this statue comes with a companion statue, the vehicle mode so collectors can enjoy the beauty of both bot and alternate mode at the same time!"
