    Dengeki Hobby Magazine - December Pics - MP Grimlock, Mickey Transform, Alt. in Color

    Some new pics of the Mickey Prime's transformation, Larger pics of Masterpiece Grimlock, and pics of the Alternity Convoy in "convoy colors". Sorry for the quality, Bad quality lighting for trying to take pics with a camera.

    Mickey is indeed laying ontop of the robot mode pointing forward ala "Giant Robo".

    Delicious bolts on Grimlock. That's what I loved about James Raiz's art. I'm glad something like that is finally making its way onto more TFs other than Bulkhead.

    And Alternity Convoy is one sexy looking bitch, yes he is.

    Alternity continues to look all kinds of smexy!

    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.

    Ah, Grimlock's big trick is that his tail disappears. Micky is.. decent. YOU'LL GET NOTHING FROM ME! Alternity is love. It's so much love I feel I have to date it before buying it. o_O

    Ohhh, I might consider Grimlock if his figure is as detailed as that art, though I'll only pose him in bot mode, his dino mode is too classic for my taste:tongue: .

    And Grimlock is supposed to be bigger than both Prime and Megatron in robot mode, especially going by the cartoon.

    Please let me know if there are any pics that you would want me to redo. I could zoom in on some texts for example.

    There was also a pic of E-hobby" Black Megatron and Sunstorm releases, but I think they are stock pictures and not news. I think.

    So it seems the new Henkei figures won't differ much, if at all, from the US releases..
    And no chrome, wow.
    I just hope they DO give Dinobot a more show accurate color scheme than Hasbro's version.

    Oh and having Grimlock in MP-3 scale FTL!

    no it doesnt.

    not that big of a trick, with it just going on the insides of his legs.

    They had better do one hell of a job spicing up the transformation, or this could be the worst MP figure yet. as-is, the only major transformation difference I can see is where the end of the tail goes. everything else is exactly the same.

    A - I'd prefer it to be as close to in scale with the other MPs as they can get.

    B - I could settle for it being small... if it's half the price.

    Grimlock is more awesome everytime I see better, detailed pics. Hopefully, he WON'T be the same size as MP SS...that would make me very sad indeed.

    this is an odd grouping.....

    I love Grimlock! I know its gonna be just an improved G-1 but it is ok with me.

    I kind of like the Alternity figs but wont get them unless they were bigger or priced lower.

    Micky Prime is strange i think its neat to look at but I wouldnt wast my money. which Transformers fan loves Mickey and which Mickey fan likes Transformers?

    And thank God.



    I know, I was being sarcastic. (Like you, I'm very unimpressed that he's so simple) I also don't like how high his shoulders sit.

    Hastakomy simply can't win can they, the do MP Convoy, fans complain about his alt mode, MP Starscream the jet kibble on his hips introduced to be renovating an aged design gets picked on, MPMegatron they include a complex transformation and do their best with the dimesnsions allowed and people still pick on his legs, now Grimlock, accurate to the original toy and cartoon more so than any other MP Tranformer and people pick on him because he's not been updated :roll

    I think he looks fantastic and shall consider importing one (that was the only way i managed to get starscream.)

    I think his robot feet could fold in also. Besides if Grimlock didn't have his "wings", chunky legs and generally look like his G1 self there would be a <understatement> few complaints </understatement>; and that would mean an essentially similar transformation scheme.
