    Just posting this to let you know what features MP Grimlock has :

    In Robot Mode he has a button on his right shoulder that activates the red LED in his hand - when his gun or sword are put in his hand the weapon lights up.
    In T-Rex Mode, when you Wag his tail his head moves left to right.
    In Robot mode there is a switch behind his head, that when flipped up or down his eyes change from red to blue.

    Here is a pic of the Metal Content and Features :

    Interesting Gimmicks - I would love to see for myself~~

    the metal content though is a real shame

    how does Takara get off charging so much for what is really just a leader class figure?

    GenZhao, because idiots like me are tripping over ourselves to buy it even if there's a 40% markup from the previous MPs. :(

    Probably because of size, detail, etc. He seems to be larger than a leader class. MP Seekers didn't have much metal at all - probably less than this - and I am pretty sure he is a good bit bigger than they are.

    I find it disturbing that Takara products are now also available in advance...

    That's a disappointing level of metal content. At least he appears to have more than screamer though.

    Very disappointing metal content IMO. Especially for a toy of this size with a price tag like that.

    The less metal the better IMO, less paint chipping after all.
