    They could have it in their warehouse now and they're evaluating them for collector's grade, etc. Either way it makes no difference to me, it'll be a while before I get one.

    I was already charged for my preorder and it's sitting in my Pile of Loot (which I clicked ship on after he came in as that's all I was waiting for) so maybe that's for all the ones leftover after the preorders... not that it matters... I mean, waiting two more days for it to ship really isn't that big of a deal.

    Far as we know he's not going to come with it. It was only ever seen once, but it's rather possible that it was cut for whatever reason or that it's only intended for an eventual US release (which would make sense given that the crown is from the Marvel Comics continuity).

    It's a pity because the crown really made me smile. I loved the fact it was representing one of the other facets of Grimlock's character, though fortunately, there are some fan-made ones in the works. I hear Frenzy-Rumble is on the case.

    I'll pass. Would like to get it, but since the money could be spent on better things, I will have to pass.

    I'll post what the actual cost was when I pick up mine. I posted on the thread earlier in the week that when I asked the manager about the release date that I think he said it costs Y9,999 and the exchange rate was at Y92 = $1, which is about $104 (I think)
