    If the rumor is good enough for you guys, then it's good enough for me. :) 

    Here's to hoping that it is true, Grimlock is a brilliant toy, second best Masterpiece after Optimus.

    Wow! So maybe we'll end up with Thundercracker this November, perhaps?

    But I didn't expect Grimmy THIS soon!

    Sweet deal. Certainly happening sooner than I expected.

    Of course, the bad news about this is that TRU never discounts their exclusives. So we won't be getting $20 Grimlocks anytime soon like we were with Skywarps. =\

    I hope its out in the fall for us. I really want him, but I probably won't be able to buy him if he comes out in april/may.

    Does this mean he'll be possibly released soon in Canada or the states?

    If this is true, then this is REALLY good news. However, there is a lot coming out in the next few months, I better start saving my extra pennies.

    Has anyone compiled a list of the differences between this and the Takara release? I'm interested, but only if it's pretty much identical to Takara's.

    Skywarp's deco was completely redesigned and the plastic was lower-caliber.

    Aside from ever-so-slightly dulled teeth and claws and one or two extra paint apps, they're identicle.

    I'm actually kinda hoping it takes a little longer. I've got to save for Botcon.

    We've seen instructions... but with the release date so soon, i'm suprised we've not seen packaged samples yet.



    I'd do unspeakable things for an MP Thundercracker with a PAINTED Anime deco, but are there even unsubstantiated rumors of a Hasbro MP Thundercracker?

    Hasbro release dates are often actually "saturation dates". meaning when it'll be widely available.
