    I would say that pricing is the same for preorder or regular sale. I will say that Showz's prices are competitive. Here is my take. If Gaudenter numbers are small in production and preorders dry up then you are SOL in getting one. I don't think that will happen so you should be fairly safe in playing the waiting game to see who has him at a competitive price once retailers get him. I personally said "screw it" and ordered from Showz. It's done and over and I don't risk missing out on him. My tiny .02 cents on this matter. Good luck man!!

    yeah i dont think price would be different..i saw that FT had the same price for most of their dibots but had cheaper rereleases..
    and you got a point with the wings and all but do you see grimlock becoming more expensive?

    The face looks a lot better from the front. Not the prettiest in the world but serviceable.

    Really impressed with him. My thoughts -

    Actully really liking the face now. He looks so grumpy lol. Easily the best face of the swoops about.

    Doesn't look like he comes with a visor. I wonder if there's a swappable gold chrome beak for the red version.

    LOVE that he has two swords so he can look a bit different to the others. I can't tell if his guns have fold down handles on them like Graviters do.

    WTF are those lams about pointing at him? Have i missed an episode or something. I mean.. they look pretty cool but there's a whole heap of accessories I would rather have instead (ie visor and chrome beak as examples)

    Also, any ideas what the "mystery piece"in the photos is that Giga were talking aboutl?

    They both look pretty damn cool and I cannot wait to get the red and blue chrome versions which I ordered from Showz. The stern face is better compared to the yelling one, but they are both still ok.

    The face does look better now that we get a clear look at it. The angry face is still bad. Normally, the flames come with the "R" version. Is this different this time?

    Also.... this is the only one that doesn't have a spot for an Autobot symbol.

    No idea about the lamps, do they actually work? Yeah I'd rather a visor istead of those. Still, I can't wait for this guy!

    That would suck if his neck has zero to little movement. Let's hope that is not the case

    I think it's because the head looks a bit bigger now.
