    are there any good side by side pics of grassor and cesium together , Im trying to decide which one to go with, i know grassor is still the biggest, but cesium is slightly bigger then scoria was, im just wondering how much bigger grassor is in comparison to cesium.

    Per user @qemuel. Grassor's on the far right, I think that's Scoria on the left and Cesium in the middle.

    hahah , love it, could you do me a favour ? could you send a pic like this but with both of them standing with their legs as straight as possible with one in front of the other from the side ( so basically stop grassor from mating with cesuim and put him on the floor haha) would really appreciate it ! thanks

    I ended up taking off the tail pieces from the rear of the botmode legs. Was hindering leg movement.

    Cesium X is big enough to kind of fit in with the Gigasaurs (he's shorter than the rest in the same way that Scoria is shorter than the rest of the Dibots), but the aesthetic doesn't match...

    Honestly, Cesium's aesthetic doesn't really even match the actual FT Dibots, it's too undetailed plus he's TOO DAMN BIG. I see why he was released under the PerfectFusion imprint instead of FT. I just wonder why they didn't make him, like, 5% smaller? Then I really would have replaced my Scoria with it.

    *ahem* GRASSOR! Yeah, it's awesome. :)

    okey guys so basically ive got a kind of crazy idea ... I love grassor, but my only real problem with him is his head. I think its a bit too big and that the sculpt could be better. Personally I love cesiums head sculp , I prefer the eye shape and how they are indented in the sculpt, whereas grassors are just really straight edges and barely indented into the sculpt.

    so heres my crazy idea: what if i tried doing a head swap where cesiums head would be on grassors body ! ( I know i know, the gold chrome color wouldnt match, but honestly that wouldnt bother me at all) and i know cesiums head would be slightly smaller, but thats the point, plus i love how slag was sometimes drawn with a smaller dino head, which made his frills around it look bigger and more intimidating. like here for example:

    let me know you guys thought !

    The fact that there are still questions about FT vs. GP is a little surprising to me given that the differences are pretty massive and both lines have been out long enough now with enough releases for most collectors to have a pretty good handle on what the deal is with both lines.

    If you ask me (and nobody is)... FT is solidly made, beautiful bots, great materials, pricey, but fit in perfectly with any MP collection you want to throw them into whether you go bot or dino. They are really super nice.

    GP is also solidly made, beautiful bots in the sense they are so god dam bling balls out shiney, fit in with MP scale wise but maybe the bling may make some not feel they fit in with a smooth finish bot like Takara Inferno or Takara Lazerwave, and in dino mode, really do an awesome job of being a supersized premium dinobot when compared to the G1 toy.

    If you can afford them, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting one of each set. They are both well made and definitely worth every penny. I get alot of bots these days and it's really the dinobots that I admire the most. They just stand out so much amongst their peers...

    You guys think there is a possibility for the Metallic Grassor to be reissued?? I've been in the hunt for one and cant find one even in the forums or ebay. I've even pmd Chinese sellers in Facebook and they don't have it

    I was able to get the metallic Guttur, and I'm planning on getting the metallic version of each, but Grassor has become a difficult one to get.

    Oh... Not sure if the seller can ship outside Asia but he's quite responsive (unless you totally can't access the website else you can try checking with him).

    Yeah I tried registering but it requires you to do it with an Asian or Canadian address :p  but all good, I got it from a local seller for like 180, not bad taking into consideration that I'm in Costa Rica and importing a $135ish from USA would cost me similarly.

    Question guys, do all metallic Grassors come with the Guttur hip replacement??
