Blackout...No Grindor, Bumblebee FAB Pics

It seems Hasbro love of repaints has made its way to the movies as the mystery of the Blackout appearance in the ShoWest Montage is explained.

Based on the Fast Action Battler pictures from TF08.net, the actual name is Grindor whose alt mode is MH-53 Sikorsky Pave Low, the same alt mode as Blackout. The FAB line doesn't have enough detail to know if the character (and other toy classes) will have more differences then just the paint job. Thanks to Phil for the link.

FAB Bumblebee Bio
With the battle raging in the desert, Bumblebee knows he needs to be ready. He upgrades with the latest in deep desert weaponry and prepares to charge into battle across the dunes. The Decepticons will never know what hit them when they get a taste of his sand blast.
FAB Grindor
Grindor is always ready for a fight. He plans everything out in detail, so that he knows exactly how a battle is going to go before it even begins. He is always at the center of the action so that he can use his heavy firepower to ensure his plans succeed.

  1. WOW I'm surprised they're recycling decepticon ideas, for example bonecrusher's head on rampage.

  2. Bonecrusher's head little resembles heads of Constructicons, but nobody has 100 % similar, fool.

  3. I doubt this to be true, the toy is called Grindor, but I have seen so many recolored molds with a name for any shade of color to doubt the movie Decepticon to be anyone but Blackout himself...

  5. Why did they change Blackouts name?

    I would be okay with Grindor if he was slightly different but no they just chose to use the same mold. Hopefully he will still be known as Blackout in the film. With all the good expectations for this film i wouldnt be suprised if it fails to entertain fans with all the new and reborn charecters.

  6. Ok. If he is in the movie and he turns out to be named Grindor even though he looks exactly like Blackout, I'll be seriously annoyed.

  10. Wait, so this means that Bay is still introducing characters to be featured in ROTF!

    This could mean that in the very last scene, Ultra Magnus could show up for 30 seconds to receive the Autobot Matrix of Leadership. Also a shadow or the back of Unicron could be shown looming towards Earth after the body of the Fallen is shown dead in Egypt.

  12. well, if you watch the shoWest footage the blades are on the Right hand. As for the pictures of this toy the blades are on the Left hand... black outs were also on the left hand. I do believe that there could potentially be 2 decp helicopters. But the likely hood of that is minimal. And that these pics have no relation the character that is in the shoWest footage.

  13. ok first off, blackouts spinning rotor was in his right hand as he approached the optimus/megatron fight in the first movie to have a new character thats an exact clone of blackout is rediculous, i agree that it is blackout...secondly regarding the fallen, its not the fallen from the comics, so no connection to unicron, so no unicron in the movie universe...and im quite happy with that. in fact if u people actually read his profile he sounds like unicron, getting "proxies" to serve him...
