    Assuming you are talking about the first gorilla Primal mold exclusively, didja count the 10th anniversary 'show accurate' remold?

    That about hits the nail on the head. And I do believe number 10 is a straight repaint of 1 (grey AND white is painted silver, different blue). I can't tell much else from those pics.

    If I'm not mistaken, the 'original' US and Japanese are slightly different from each other. The Japanese version has the bumps removed from behind Primal's/Convoy's head. The collar that sticks up behind is head is smooth on the Japanese version, but bumpy with a furlike pattern on the US.

    So, that's 11...

    This is one mold I just can't get enough of. I got the original black gorilla when I was a kid (I love you Mum!), got the clear one over the winter (amazing toy... it's just fantastic), got the Takara "show accurate" version, and even the Universe repaint... it really grows on you after a while.

    Yep, this guy, along with Bendy Prime and the BW2 Starscreme & BB molds (don't know their G2 names) are the three molds I just can't get enough of.

    So many gorillas...
    I might pick up the upcoming Japanese reissue (Telemocha DX), this mold is so much fun.

    Jarodimus called CM poopyhead :eek:  I'm not going to tell you that I have Burning baby ape then. But the figure has lovely blue eyes :D
