    A very nice review! I still have no interest in obtaining this version though.

    Excellent review. Holy crap. I would love to see some more of those kind of reviews.

    Too bad I can't afford that thing. I don't like the blue on it though.

    yeah the price for that is pretty crazy. Jacking the price up by 100$ just for a repaint is pretty lame. Id rather buy the normal version and pay an extra 15$ for the upgrade set that comes with the Crown, Stein and mini Thrust. Plus i dont like the blue on this one.. Would be funny though if Hasbros release of there Grimlock is this version.

    I got both now and I prefer King Grimlock way over the original. It is a gem.

    I own both but haven't shipped 08X yet. Our local friend Paul does an awesome job on these reviews. :dj  I was just checking out his 08X the other day, glad I ordered it.

    Nice review, very professional.

    However, as I've never read any G1 gomics (I'm a "show loyalist" :p  ) I have no interest in this version.

    I think it's great that Takara made it and made it so well though!

    Yeah, I own both versions too, and I prefer the original MP Grimlock in Robot mode. However, I agree with Tfsource that the T-Rex mode looks much shinier and prettier. I recommend it to those that can afford it though as I don't think the Hasbro version will have a premium paint job on it.

    That was a really great review. I would love to get this version of MP Grimlock, but I just can not justify the price.

    I would love to own MP Grimlock, but the $140.00 price tag is way too expensive! I hope the Hasbro version is priced moderately, it's a nice figure.

    Passed on the original MP Grimlock, figured I'd wait for a domestic release. Then they showed off MP-08X and I was pretty well sold. The price was a tough hurdle to jump over, but having King Grimlock in hand made it worth the cost. No word of a lie, the figure is a jewel, really stunning to behold.

    I already have the original Masterpiece Grimlock and I'm waiting for the Hasbro release so I can have him in Dino mode. This King Grimlock is really sweet, I wouldn't mind having a 3rd, the price though is a relative killer though.

    Whoever has him I'm sure is pleased. I can't afford it right now...:(  because my wallet is...:rip

    Great review! When I achieve bottomless disposable income, I'll buy both of these. And maybe one to step on.
