    I'm quite surprised myself tbh. Not sure why FT gave him such huge/long arms.

    I'm using the Hasbro reissue so the gold is off but the earlier versions might be better there.

    How's the gray plastic? The arms look ever so marginally lighter in the pic, but I know firsthand that pics aren't always representative of how things look in person.

    Thanks, but now I can see why FT decided to go with the bigger arms, your MP-08's arms in robot look very good but definitely look undersized in alt-mode. I think the best arms would be a size in between MP-08's arms and FT-08's, this way there can be a compromise, a good alt-mode and a slightly compromised robot mode, because from the looks of it seems as if you're always going to have to sacrifice one mode to get a good other mode......unless TT have something to say about it with some of their magic, which I'm sure they will do when they get around to the V2 of this guy.

    Thanks again!

    Any concern we're never going to see it because of the whole C&D thing that happened with Kapow? I know Brandon at TCP said they got nothing, but over on BBTS they have a disclaimer on Grinder's page about how it's not an official TT piece etc. I don't remember if that's always been there or not.

    On every version of Grinder they sell (not the head). And just Grinder, not any of the other Dibots.

    True. Shipping is cheaper domestically, of course. I haven't been able to find one for cheaper, though.

    This thing is getting pretty scarce. I wouldn't sit too long. Apparently there won't be a reissue.

    Thanks for sharing that! I checked there earlier but didn't see it, guess I should've used the search. But I was freaking out these past few days over this, I ordered one on eBay a few days ago, and the seller canceled the next day, saying they weren't getting more for another month, and I didn't know if I should believe that and wait. So this works out great! And yes, the shipping is free to the US.

    My head arrives today.


    I'll never use it, so I honestly don't know why I bought it. :lol

    I think we all know why...you're hoarding it until it goes out of stock due to Hasbro's C&D. Then you can sell it for big $$$ :p

    They look good in robot mode. On the dinosaur mode they look rather slender though.

    Thanks for this. I had 1 ordered a few days ago from showz and today they sent me a refund with no explanation, though it isn't hard to figure out why.

    Oddly enough it isn't actually available on his Ebay store. Might want to message him first to confirm if/when he has it available.
    Great deals from Madeinch Store | eBay stores

    Got my Grinder head in yesterday. I didn't have any problems with the original dino head but I replaced it anyway. Grimmy has been acting goofy ever since
