    Lol. I believe they're the rarest of the different G2 colors, so it's completely understandable.

    The sad part is that these came out right around the time I got married to my first wife, and I saw every version of those G2 Dinobots in different stores, and couldn't even buy one of them. That turquoise/teal Grimlock was the one I wanted most, and to this day I still want him. I keep hoping that at least one of these freaking 3rd party companies will release their Grimmy in that color, but of course it hasn't happened yet. :(

    I got my blue one from him as well. Looks magnificent in person.
    Don't forget to pick up the v2 blue dino head.....picked mine up from Toy Dojo since I didn't feel like waiting 2 weeks for an accessory.

    I don't think I've seen the silver one.

    Was he the only G2 bot that got multiple repaints?

    Silver one was the same as the G1. They basically just rereleased the G1 version with the G2 logo and the word "Autobot" oin the dino butt/robot leg.

    Man, that's so dumb. He doesn't have any wheels, he's a Dinobot! Seriously though, it's funny that they felt the need to put it in writing on him even though he had a faction symbol. I guess they couldn't be any more clear about his affiliation than that though.

    I thought they did it with all three G2 guys, but could be wrong. But, yeah, pretty dumb. And makes the faction tampo redundant.

    Forget about those recolors, we need a Prehistory Animal Grinder.

    It sucks that the Takra Collection/Encore G1 reissue lines ended so quickly before they could get to the Dinobots.

    I'm thinking of grabbing the KO versions and then the matching g1 reprolabels sets and rubsigns.

    I know someone selling a used set but I can't bring myself to pay for them when I could use that money on an MP/MP Styled new purchase.

    $75-100 range for the set. But I could get other higher priority things at that price.
