    IIRC it was in regards to the new head sculpt. It was not my impression that the bot himself was in question.

    For those that have the FireFair flame kit for MP08 Grimlock, the sword flame piece fits the swords for FT Grinder and Scoria. I just tried it out on my Grinder's sword.

    I can't be bothered to dig up the specific post, but Kapow later confirmed the C&D was for both the G1 head and Grinder himself.

    I had a spare set of Scoria hands I modded. Not sure if anyone found a decent pair for mp08 back in the day? Maybe Mp10 eness?

    Here's the four land guys to show the improved proportions that bring him bang into line with the rest of the team:

    Not only does the head now look the right size but his waist doesn't look skinny anymore either to me. It's crazy how much a simple thing changes the aspect of everything else.

    Anyone have any pictures of grinder with Hasbro leader class figures? My shelf is an IDWish mix of 3P and CHUG figures. I’m looking for a Alt mode Grimlock to be a head taller then CW Ultra Magnus, but still shorter then Bruticus/Superion with PE add ons. I’m torn between him and Reximus.

    Couldn't agree more with the improved Grimlock proportions because of MP-08's arms, nice picture!

    Where's Soar?

    Huh. That is interesting. Why would one branch of Hasbro C&D on a product that is sold internationally, I wonder.

    The head upgrade has pretty much sold out everywhere but I did see it on Show Z store this weekend. Pretty sure they still had some in stock so your best bet is them for now. 1st time ordering from them but have heard nothing but good things.

    As for Grinder, not sure sorry. I only know about the head because I kept procrastinating and visited every website in the universe in a panic trying to find it. Snooze you lose etc.

    If you've got the money, I'd suggest buying the head ASAP.

    You can buy Grinder at TFSource. It is also available at a couple of Canadian sites.

    Anyplace still have the head in stock? I've been waiting on my preorder from BBTS, but with it drying up everywhere I'm getting worried. Frustrated that I preordered it there day one and didn't have it filled when they got stock:/

    There's a Canadian site that has the regular non-X head. Kooltoyz.ca.

    Thanks! Checked them out and their shipping to the us ends up being basically the same as the head itself. I'm not sure I'm quite that desperate yet.
