    My Masterpiece Grimlock is itching to throw down with his closest 'con counterpart, so I wanted to know how much those of you that have him like this year's Botcon Razorclaw. Is he worth the aftermarket price? How does he stack up against the Henkei/Classics voyagers an ultras size-wise?

    (I don't have any other version of that Leobreaker mold, so any thought on it in general will also be helpful.)

    No. All Botcon exclusives are overpriced.

    He's a crap mold. But this is thee best version of the crap mold ever! He looks outstanding with the other classics/universe Decepticons. I recommend.

    Yes, the deco and the new head do not change the fact he's not one of the best toys ever designed in the last five years, but they do make the absolute best of him. He stays very true to the character, manages to look great in just about any Classics or A-E-C display, and best of all came packaged with Elita-1, probably the only time we'll ever get a vaguely G1 accurate Elita.

    No... repaints shouldn't cost that much.

    I liked him myself. I had absolutely no interest in the Leo Breaker mold or any of its store repaints. That might be another reason I enjoy Razorclaw, because I never had the mold in any other capacity. But still, it really does make for a great rendition of the character. I'm very happy I got him. I'd say he's worth it if you can a decent deal for him. If you can get the two-pack, the Elita-1 is an added bonus (even though I didn't keep mine, people seem to like her quite a bit).
