    Masterpiece Grimlock upgrade kit

    New from I-GEAR!
    This upgrade kit will include the following items:

    1x Gold Crown
    1x Maccadam's Old Oil House Cup
    1x Miniature Thrust jet (non-transforming)

    Now you can recreate that one scene which sent hardcore scale fanss in a flurry of rage. Personally I'm getting this.

    If I can pick up a MP Grimlock at Botcon, I'll be getting this just for the crown.

    That's why I'm getting it for the most part, though at this stage, the crown doesn't really look that appealing. Really hoping they pull off some great paint work there.:drool: 

    The small thrust is what really got me curious. Would it be nicely detailed or generic red hunk of plastic kinda shaped like a plane.

    Since we saw Grimlock's crown in the prototype pics of Grimlock, isn't it reasonable to assume it will be included in Hasbro's release?

    I mean, one assumes it was a Hasbro-requested accessory since it has no meaning to most of the Japanese fans.

    Dream on. We also saw prototype pictures for Starscream and the final product ended up being quite different. Prototype pictures are just that, prototype pictures. Even if by some miracle Hasbro does release the crown, you will have to purchase an entire inferior version of Grimlock with rubber parts to get it.

    Wow, how could Takara include such crazy accessories as a apron and beverage tray but completely forget the crown?

    If he gets a U.S. release I will defiantly have to find this upgrade set.

    sigh... The US release. Let's hope Hasbro doesn't cannibalize anything from the original one to make it more "safe".

    But still, anything Hasbro comes up with + Crown = WIN!

    The tray and apron are from the G1 cartoon, which aired in both countries. The crown is from the US comic.
