Grimlock!

My G1 Grimlock poses with his classic version, which I bought because, well, I had to.

Leader of the Dinobots, I once had them all (except Swoop), but Grimlock was the only official - the others were all Knock-Offs.

One of my top three favorites (those being Optimus Prime, Soundwave, and Grimlock), Grimlock managed to survive the holocaust because he was in a box my Mom didn't find.

World Ending Bomb is Primed! He actually used that, once, in the stories I made up as a kid. Fortunately he wasn't on Earth at the time, just a lot of Decepticons and a few Autobots who were all about to die anyway. Grim teleported who he could (they happened to be all mine) just before it went off.
