    I need the help of the TFW2005 boardmembers. I'm having trouble deciding which large purchace to make. Should I get MP Grimlock @ $150 ot a set of three Henkei Seekers? (Thundercracker, Dirge, And Thrust.)

    Getting all of the above is not an option. Money is tight and my TF budget is shrinking. I might allow myself to make one large TF purchase at tax time early next year.

    So which is it? Obviously, I LOVE Grimlock he's my favorite character......look at my username after all. But, The seekers are probably among my favorite Decepticons and I can't get enough of the Classics Seeker mold.

    So PLEASE help me......I'm torn and I can't decide!! THANKS for posting!!

    I'd go for the Seekers. BTW, how much are Henkei deluxes after import charges/shipping,etc? I need/want at least one Henkei... Astrotrain.

    I'd suggest seekers. They are going to be exclusives and there is no guarantee that they will be available down the road. MP Grimlock will be, plus it has been pretty much confirmed(though not officially) that Hasbro will be making one state side which I'm quite sure will be cheaper.

    I would get Grimlock.

    The seekers and so so when compared to the masterpiece of engineering that will be Grimlock.

    i'd get whatever is rarer. that way, in the near future you won't pay premium price for something you missed on. so i assume grimlock will be out for a good long time. look at the rest of the MP's. thundercrack is an exclusive and i bit the bullet for him at 65 shipped. i rather get it now than 3 months from now when they are 80 dollars or more.

    The seekers won't be out till March either though..
    I say go for the seekers, they'll probably be made in lesser quantities than the MP figure.

    Ack...so hard to choose!!!:sly2: 



    I'll hafta say the Henkei Seekers even though Grimmy is my favorite TF as well. They're exclusives(for now), while Grimlock will almost definately be sold over here for half the price.

    Much as I hate to say it... Seekers.

    While they both hit about the same time, Grimlock will DEFINITELY be easier to come by the next time you have money. The Seekers? Well, you saw what happened to the convention exclusives. Gone, and the price went through the roof.

    Though honestly, if I could only have one, EVER, it'd be Grimlock.

    I think that pretty much sums it up. The seekers may still end up as Hasbro products too, but Grimlock seems more imminent.

    Hm. Three small plastic almost identical toys based off of a $10 deluxe toy?

    ... or a near perfect rendition of a classic character in a size and level of detail previously unseen in a Grimlock toy?

    Hmmm....

    With alternators grimlock I'm happy enough not to want the masterpiece. What with his red sword and silver plates. I really like the angles for the windows on the lower legs.

    He is a mighty king of the road. Also henkei seeker chrome has a tendency to break.

    This ^^^. I can't bring myself to spend $65 on a Henkei Thundercracker eventhough I want one.

    I'd say Grimlock because that's what I'm getting, not even considering the seekers.

    i have the same problem myself as im coming back from iraq soon and i just wont have the extra cash to keep spending. so im going with the seekers. mainly because i dont own any other MP's so i dont get to fully appreciate how nasty awesome they are. the seekers just are more interesting to me, especially since their easier to display, move, etc. im running out of room too:(

    If I had to make the choice it would be Grimlock without hesitation.

    I would go with Grimlock. I think those seekers are overpriced. True they may be more rare and cost more down the road but unless you are a completist you will be able to find the seeker mold for far less.
