    Vibrant Red Alternity Convoy looks sexy and Alternity Megatron's fusion cannon is awesome as is his samurai-esque shoulder and waist armor. I'm glad to see TakaraTomy designed the 370z specifically as Megatron rather than plonk a Megatron head onto some generic looking bot.

    Oooh just picked up this issue and was wondering how long until somebody scanned it :) 

    The alternity figures are looking really good - cant wait to get my hands on them.

    A tad bit disappointed with the size, but none the less very happy they made MP Grimlock. I hope the Masterpiece line will continue but please make it a bit bigger...almost MP Prime or along that size and not MP Starscream....

    "Disney Label Micky Mouse Trailer" is a pretty uninspiring name.

    I'm still not psyched for MP Grimlock like I was for previous MPs unfortunately.

    Also, his bot mode wings are huge, like frickin' bat wings. Probably due to the extra long dino mode torso. Bot mode's torso also looks too long and narrow.

    Same here. I just hope the actual figure stays as close to the concept/design artwork as possible because it rocks so much. Really really digging the fresh design of the fusion cannon. I wonder how it stores in Fairlady Z mode.

    So Grimlock is gonna come up to MP Prime's shoulder in Dinomode.

    I guess he will become my classics Grimlock then.

    MP Grimlock looks like he'll be the perfect size for my Classics Autobots. Especially since he'll more than likely be shorter in bot-mode than in dino-mode. Can't wait to see what Hasbro has in store for their eventual release of him.

    Grimlock's robot mode looks great from the front. Looks he is going to be quite small however, which is a big let-down.

    Looks to me like Grim might be shorter in robot mode, but not by much.

    Any of you who can read le Nihongo, what's the deal with the little feature with the two pics of the dino leg? Looks like it might compress or extend or something, but nothing's too apparent (without the ability to read about it, that is)

    Grimlock should fit in very nicely with the classics line. :D

    Something about suspension (like a car's suspension).

    I hope Cheetor and Ravage aren't too different in scale to catfight. They need a Beast Wars rematch!
