    That's the best Masterpiece ever made. From here we can see all the improvements made over the years, TT really nailed it this time

    Hate the tail-dino head connection, seems playable but it will probably really ruin the figure in the long term. Otherwise he seems okay, wish we could see more articulation in robot mode.

    He looks nice, but I still gotta give the nod to Megatron (durability issues aside).

    Still, looking forward to this guy. But $150 bones is a lot.

    Again, nice figure, but not 150 muthafukkas nice. Though was there any reason that video had to be nine minutes long?

    I actually just have to point out that I love the eye gimmick in robot mode. Mostly because you don't have to open up his head or anything. (in beast mode you do, but hey)


    He's very floppy during transformation, and I can just see parts getting scraped or chipped.

    I love how the "Diaclone Driver cockpit" holds the gun like that. Genius. I'm not so sure about the tail/head thing, but at least you can turn the head on its own. LOVED the snapping jaw though! I SO hope I can pick this bad boy up at Botcon.

    Nice...but can't say I see $150 worth of figure there, though I do love Grimlock. I'll probably hold out to see if a US version is produced and if not, then I'll consider acquiring one of these.

    great to see teh TF sequence is rather simple and aside from the come complex leg transformation it is pretty much the same as the g1 toy. The overall look is awesome, a really well done update of the diaclone toy, it would have been difficult fro the designer/s to have improved on this.
