Could someone fluent in Japanese translate the text on the MP-8 scan? From the little I can read, it seems to say that Grimlock will be about the same size as MP-3 Starscream. I'm all for smaller sized figures (felt that MP-1/4 and MP-5 were too large) but not for the huge price tag Grimlock is getting.
"Grimlock who has the unique distinction of being a Transformer built by Transformers has been confirmed! At present, he is in the manufacturing stage for mass retail. His powerful form, his unique mold, possible gimmicks: just by studying the design sketches to the right should be enough to excite you if you are a TF fan... The size of the Robot mode is approximately the same as MP-3 Starscream, and he seems to have enough gimmicks to make a 'mania' cry. Next issue, we may even be able to show a prototype..."
There you go. If you ever need Japanese translation, I'm your man.
