    Hey all. I was about to go on and buy Mp-08 Grimlock. But I wanted to ask if he is worth it. Shipping and all I would be paying $200 for him. So want to make sure he is worth the money. Please leave some feedback for me. Hope this is in the right section.

    Best Regards,

    I'm not up to date with this figure's availability, but isn't that a bit too expensive? Is the Hasbro version more available?

    Well full cost would be... Total: $183.90

    And the Hasbro one, is about the same price now. That is why I need some help. I don't know much about this release.

    Best Regards,

    If the Takara and Hasbro are the same price, I would go with Takara just because the box is really nice. $186 is not too bad after all said and done. I always see it as if you think you will regret it one day by not picking him up, then pick him up now when he is available.

    he's totally worth it, but honestly I'd say hold out, see if a better price comes along. $150 shipped is more reasonable.

    Thanks guys. I contacted the seller... and he dropped it down to $160 shipping and all. Will still get it within the same time frame "5-7" days. I love Grimlock, so went ahead and got him.

    I now am waiting on 7 items, LOL. Will post pictures when they all come and are set up in my display. Thanks again.

    Best Regards,

    one of my favorite figures, 160 shipped for the Takara version is pretty much what it was when it was released

    Grimlock is great but at 200 dollars, that's a bit steep.

    Yeah, if the Hasbro version is going for that now, the version I'd recommend would be the TakaraTomy version.

    That's a good deal. MP Grimlock is a great toy. He is much easier to transform than some other MP's, and is a great representation of the character. If you like the Grimlock character, you will be happy with the MP version.
