    Probably wishful thinking here, but what's the chance we'll see Masterpiece Grimlock get a retail re-release? I'll never forgive myself for passing on it when I had so many opportunities to buy it...

    Yeah. Takara's will undoubtedly cost a fortune though. Thanks anyways.

    You might check around in Junkion. I've heard some people talking about MP Grimmy showing up in the UK just recently.

    Depends on your time frame.
    In the next ten years, yes.
    Next year? No.

    Check EBay, still going for decent prices.

    There are loads in the UK at Toys R Us right now. Cost £60. What's that, $95 or something? Some good prices on eBay.

    Mass retail in the US? Nope.

    If you want one, jump over to Junkion or hit ebay, etc.

    As some people have said, TRU in the UK is pretty well-stocked for MP Grimlock, you should focus on going through any British TF contacts you have.

    (Don't ask me, though, I do not have the time. Apologies.)

    Don't worry, I'm sure Takara will change out 3 of the parts and release MP Grimlock 2.0 in about a year.

    Trolling aside, it's really not going to happen. Unless for some reason they use it as an exclusive or something and even then it'll likely have a different deco or accessories.

    Grimlock is by far my favorite in the Masterpiece line.

    Just got one on ebay for $100 shipped (loose). Still wish I had bought it new for $70 since I saw it at Toys'r'us so many times and kept passing on it. Oh well.

    if you passed it on the first time, chances of passing for the 2nd time is high, because
    1. the price will be a lot higher then the first time.
    2. I did not like it that much to get it for the first time, and why should I get it on the 2nd time.

    That is why it is always best to PO when the first time they come out
