Classics Grimlock Repaint?

Could it be?  We all knew that there seemed to be a fairly significant empty space between the final Classics toys and the start of the movie figures.  Could more repaints of the Classics line be in store for us as Hasbro looks to keep the shelves filled until the movie line?  Well, now a new prototype of Classics Grimlock has emerged via and reported first by that shows Grimlock in black and purple plastic.  You can see it here.  This could be just an early test shot in order to test the mold or it could be an indication of brand new repaint on its way.

Classics Grimlock Redeco?  Magic Eightball says….Hasbro stated at Botcon nothing new after wave 3 until the movie hits.  We'll have to keep a critical eye on this one.
