    Sorry, maybe I missed this somewhere, but will a separate blue G1 head be released too? Or will extra G1 heads be thrown in with the Diaclone/G2/X releases and this head is only for the normal Grinder?

    I'm just asking so I know whether to order one or two of these G1 heads, because I want one for Diaclone Grimlock too.

    he said that they would be avaliable for x and g versions. probably have to order a g1 head since the diaclone version is based off the g1 toy you wouldnt need the g1 head. it should matchsince the only thing changed is the crotch

    You guys are great, but the expensive shipping if under $150 is what keeps me away. Ever consider a cheaper option for inexpensive things such as this Grinder head? Even if there wasn't tracking I think a lot of potential customers wouldn't mind. Also, a UPS option for shipping would be nice too. USPS sucks, frankly.

    So were the other heads they packaged with grinder? It's certainly more plausible that they package the head with a future release.

    Please also add the Apron and accessories to the head replacement to completely replace MP-08 for us. Do it ... Do it ...

    @dalianjj didn't say so, but I would assume that should also be in the works.

    I'd assume it would be the same head for the diaclone version. Aren't they the same?

    We do offer FedEx as an option as well, which Smart Post is generally cheaper than USPS, but on small items like this one, probably not. The reason we don't use cheaper methods is because as a company, we need methods that have consistent tracking or we would be bombarded with extra inquiries as well as leaving the potential for claims of items not being delivered, which is something we don't want.

    If I were a company I wouldn't feel comfortable having non-trackable shipping as an option. Too much of a headache. Not sure how HLJ does it....from overseas.

    Can't wait for Grimlocks Dino head. I preordered it at bbts. July isn't to far away. I will say that FT Dino's are fantastic and a bench mark for all the figures i acquired after. Not only is their products great, but their service matches as well! A big thank you to Delanji for sending my replacement beak for Soar!
    He is complete again. I can't say enough great things about this company and their products. I'm sure those that have purchased or had interactions with their service team feels the same way.

    Looking forward to July

    I just cracked open my FT-08 Grinder and I have to say, wow! He's huge and hefty (towering over MP-10 Optimus Prime), and his joints are super strong with nice clicky ratchets that are music to my ears. Poses like a boss, and the sculpt is great! I preordered the updated Grinder Dino head too. Gonna transform him into dino mode so Grinder can take a whack at that fake friend MP-36 Megatron. :D

    Come to think of it, now we need new feet to compliment the new head. The claws really only work for the bigger head....Pleeeeease?
