    Is There Any Chance Masterpiece Grimlock Will Go On Sale Again?

    This got released twice already, right? Does anyone think it will be released again by Takara or Hasbro?

    I really want the Takara version, but didn't pull the trigger on it when I should have.

    Takara has done some crazy, out of left field reissues so there's a very, very slim chance they might bring back MP Grimlock. Hasbro, on the other hand, is almost a guaranteed never.

    i really doubt it will. masterpieces aren't really reissued in their original state and grimlock's not in need of any retooling or new molds.

    Takara's done "reissues"/belated restocked of certain MPs, so Grimlock is possible, especially since it is still one of, if not the best, MPs ever made.

    I say there's no chance of another Hasbro release though.

    Doubtful, especially that they are making so many MPs now per year, plus they saw a rerelease already. Also Hasbro has not really shown to rerelease MPs.

    I hope that if MP Grimlock does get rereleased, he'll get scaled up so he'll be in scale with MP10-on.

    Not anytime soon.

    If they ever do I expect a price hike to go along with it. The original Takara one was like $140- $150 so I could see it being closer to $180-$190.

    Negative. If it is sold again, it will probably be a repaint, maybe G2 colors (wishful thinking).

    I'd say, look harder! You can find a good deal if you're out hunting eBay and the forums:2c:

    This is true. I've seen some (Hasbro) sell for around the $100 mark.

    As long as it's out-of-scale with MP10-on? Highly unlikely, HasTakTomy seems to really be adhering to their new self-imposed rule.

    I wish. I only saw him once in store and I couldn't afford the purchase at the time.
    But I'd love to own him so bad... I love Grimlock and he looks beautiful. I really feel like I missed out.

    Probably will save up and buy him second-hand sometime in the future.

    I'd buy a reissue in a heartbeat if it had the MP-08x sword. Never liked the white sword, did Hasbro/Takara never look at it and realise it was the wrong colour??
