    Nice that they change it up some, though I worry a bit as TRU might pad the price on an exclusive like this.

    Shit. I might have to get up early to beat the local TRU scalpers.

    Also, WOOT! A crown! Looks like waiting on this might have paid off.

    I was hoping it would be WM and they'd over-order so this would go on clearance. Until recently, TRU never place their exclusives for sale on a discount.

    Still, this is a definite buy.

    Interesting. Looks pretty good. Can't wait to see what this "phenomenal" packaging looks like.

    Sword + Crown = Win.

    Something tells me TRU will retail this for $74.99, but we'll see.

    Glad he's not at Walmart. I go to TRU all the time.

    As long as they don't use that lame blue King Grimlock MP repaint and keep the blue/red eye gimmick, I'll be happy. I don't care for the crown. I just want the gun and the sword. I'm hoping he'll be around $60, like MP Starscream and Skywarp, and that I don't have to wait too long for him.

    Don't worry, even if the scalpers strike, clearance in other areas will set in, making it cheaper. MP SW goes as low as $40 on eBay.

    This is exactly WHY I hate TRU cause of their price padding cause look at what they did with the SW mill falcon where it was 149 and they sold it 159.

    So, anyone knows of the price he'll be sold?

    Masterpiece Starscream was around 40-60$ on Ebay (I live in Hungary so cannot simply go to a Toys R Us store), that'd be great if GRimmy was the same price. At any rate even with shipping this'd be much less the what the Takara version costs (which is around 150-200$)

    I'll share the same sentiment that TRU may not be the best place for this, price wise. I'm afraid he'll be a lot more, like in the $70 range. And you know he'll never go on clearance either. I highly doubt we'll be seeing threads of people finding him on sale for $30.

    Screamer doesn't have light-up gimmicks. So it stands to reason Grimlock will cost more, if not a LOT more.
