    Except FansToys got it RIGHT. ;)  Grinder is a dream come true. Heck, all of their Dibots are.

    Sure is. They've tweaked and improved a few things, but yes.

    I'll never display mine with this new head, but I still want it regardless.

    They should package it with a kite shield with a plaque so you can mount the spare head on your wall.

    I get its accurate, but the old head looks more interesting, teeth look blunt on the accurate version also.

    To each his own.

    By the way is there a comparison anywhere showing all the versions of the FT dinobots? I'm a little confused over regular vs X etc.

    I have Grinder and he's great but FansToys have had the benefit of 8 years of toy design evolution to get it right.
    Much like MP36 vs MP05 given time and hindsight you can always get it 'right'.

    MP08 is basically the platform that FansToys used to make their name.

    Probably somewhere if you google it, but if you go to somewhere like BBTS and search by one of the names (i.e. "Grinder" or "Stomp"), the resulting page should bring you to all the different versions of that character. Then you can click on each and see multiple pics of that version so you can see the differences.

    BigBadToyStore.com Search

    Also, I never noticed this disclaimer on Grinder's page on BBTS. It's not present on any other FT figures. Just the 3 LE versions of Grinder:

    "This aftermarket figure is not produced or associated with Hasbro or Takara and is not a Transformers brand toy. These custom pieces are intended to further enhance the enjoyment of your existing transforming toy collection."

    At first I thought it was because Grinder looks so similar to an existing TT product. But it's not present on the regular Grinder page.

    Yeah so if I have this straight in my head:

    FT-08: Regular Grimlock
    FT-08X: Shiny chromed version
    FT-08D: Marvel comic colours
    FT-08G: G2 colours

    Is that consistent with the other FT dinobots? X for chrome, D for comics, G for G2? Any other versions?

    X would be the comic variant (Silver finish instead of grey, chrome has a blue-ish tint to it, red eyes)

    D is diaclone.

    For Grinder specifically I believe that is all the variants, but Soar and Scoria also have a T Variant which is in toy colors. Also soar has a Anime X version (blue chest) and a Toy X version (red chest).

    Aaah I gotcha. Yeah I think it was the Soar blue/red chest that confused me the most.
