MP-08 Masterpiece Grimlock - Transformers Masterpiece Masterpiece at BigBadToyStore
$150? That is an expensive transformer.
well two things
1) He'll most likely be the biggest MP yet
2) Isn't that the normal price?
Too rich for my blood.
Hope my bonus check is bigger than I'm expecting- this just went to the top of the 'want' list.
So what will happen to everyone's alt grimlock now?
Not that I don't think he'll be worth it or anything against BBTS, I think I'll wait for pics and for the sites to start their preorder price wars. ^_^
Argh... If he's as big as I think he's going to be then, yeah, $150 is good, but... blast... March 2009? Not a really good time to be releasing high priced items like that... guess I'll be holding onto some of my Christmas money this year. Grimlock will be mine... oh yes... he will be mine.
I've been thinking about selling mine for a while now.
CARS BAD, CAR ROBOTS WORSE!
MP's arent my thing, but I look forward to seeing how he turns out!
I hope it comes with a crown.
I'll just wait for the inevitable Hasbro version.....
Same here. Hopefully if he ends up a store exclusive, it's Target instead of Walmart. The price seems a bit high, but then again BBTS always jacks up their prices.
I really hope this is true.
I really don't mind the price if he is bigger or as big as Prime/Convoy & Megatron...
I just want a Masterpiece Grimlock
Preordered without a second thought.
The higher price makes me think that we'll be seeing a larger MP...which makes me happy. I'm not going to get too excited about this until I see final toy pics, because MP Megatron and the MP seekers were a little disappointing for me. I think that MP Grimlock has the potential to measure up to MP01. Just like G1 Optimus, the G1 Grimlock toy design is solid enough to build off of. There is room to cheat..and the alt mode shouldn't require a complicated transformation like MP Megatron's.
The main problem for Takara is probably choosing a design for his T-Rex mode. I imagine that many people would like to see a realistic looking design similar to BW Megatron. But I think that a G1 accurate looking design would be more appropriate. It is uniquely Grimlock..and despite being historically inaccurate, it still looks cool.
Just hope this toy contains a lot of diecast metal and chrome paint.
Ah...if only one could spend money on that right now. I'll have to hold off till a later point but this is definately one figure that I shouldn't pass up on.
Preordered. but i will so cancel if some place has it cheaper..
