As with Robosen’s Optimus Prime, its Grimlock auto-converting robot can be controlled using simple voice commands, and it doesn’t need to connect to a smart assistant like Google Assistant or Amazon’s Alexa. Right out of the box, you can simply say, “Hey Grimlock,” and the robot will respond with an enthusiastic, “Yes, we go!,” in a voice that will sound familiar to fans of the original ‘80s Transformers animated series because Robosen used Gregg Berger, the original voice of Grimlock, to record over 150 new dialogue lines for the robot.

Once Grimlock is paying attention, you can speak one of 42 different voice commands (despite the manual listing less than that) that trigger everything from longer pre-programmed animated sequences to Grimlock walking around, to even the transformation process, which most definitely includes those iconic Transformers sound effects, and lots more.
