    Hmmm...colors appear to be comic colors too, black parts are replaced with dark blue and the sword is orange instead of clear. The gold chrome on the chest is also a deeper gold than the regular version and the silver body parts are now painted.

    I don't fancy the comic colors or the crown much so it's no big loss having already gotten the regular version. Would have liked the orange sword on the original though.

    Comic style box is pretty neat.

    It's a HobbyMarket exclusive. Will not include the apron, necktie, tray, glasses, or transfer device.

    Can be ordered b/w 8/1 and 9/11, and will be shipped in the second half of December.

    Price is 13000 Yen.

    If i saw the box, without the toy. I would say it was a Grimlock cereal.

    the is great if you like to display MISB. I hope this does count as the Grimlock repaint. Its such a great mold & the is so many possibilities. I don't want to see the blue paint scheme but that's the only one that references an old Grimlock depiction but I want a black & red repaint.

    Cool. But I'm not buy another one just because it includes the crown. And I prefer the original colour.

    Awesome but given its limited availability this thing will cost a ton on the 3rd party market

    saying that the crown will bound to be repo'D on the fan toy market (if a company has not already)

    Wow. This is my Grimlock having grown up more with the comics than the cartoon. I'm not going to get it though... don't need two and there's no guarantee that I could sell the first one I got on eBay and get enough to get this one (seeing as it's some kind of exclusive apparently).

    Meh. I'm more than happy with my original release Grimmy. I really don't care for a crown & a colourful new box (I set all of my TFs free :D )
