    I just bought MP grimlock and I want to tell hasbro that I would gladly spend this kind of money for toys so well designed and made.

    AMEN!

    Or, y'know, both, since all figures made are a joint effort. (or alternatively, he's thanking Hasbro for releasing Grimlock)

    Because Hasbro is more open and interactive with the Transformers fan base then Takara.

    Pardon me if I'm being ignorant here, but what does Disney have to do with MP Grimlock?
    I mean, I can see their name on there, but still.....................

    Man, Takara gets the shaft lol:lol . Well whatever, its just my :2c:  but it seems like most fans what to make babies with Hasbro when Takara deserves at least some (MOST in my opinion) of that glory.

    Yeah all Masterpiece figures except for MP-1 were Takara (TakaraTomy's doing). Hasbro offers help/suggestions apparently but everyone of them since has been a TakaraTomy effort. I'm sure they're made with the US market in mind, but that's one of the reasons why they're released so long ahead of time in Japan.

    It's these kind assumptions that bother me (that it's Hasbro's doing alone/or mostly they're doing). Just like those people that think that Hasbro doesn't license Transformers from TakaraTomy, despite it being on all the instructions and packaging every where (they license them because they licensed Microchange and Diaclone which became Transformers in America - which Hasbro gave it a story).

    The designer for all the Masterpiece figures was at BotCon 2010, he's worked on all of them thus far (plus Movie Leader Starscream).

    Again, Hasbro/TakaraTomy make these figures jointly. No one company does all the work. Hasbro's design team works with Takara's design team and so-forth. They aren't licensing out TakaraTomy's toys, they're producing them too. Just look at Animated. They produce them together, that's why TakaraTomy's on the packaging and instructions.
