    Perfect size! I wish FT Dibots were scaled to this.

    Going off gigapowers Facebook page, this is about the height of their dinobots (they have their first figure at just over 28cm I think) which I think is perfect and a better scale than FT's :)

    Looks to be about 11 inches. Probably look good with Gigapower's toys. Their Snarl is 11 inches.

    Been hearing rumours about this for so long... Bring it on!

    Be interesting to see if they change anything (like the dummy hand or the wagging tail gimmick). But I think I'd rather have this TT-designed MP Grimmy over a theoretical FT redesign. Next, show us how he looks alongside Scoria, that will be the decider :)

    Agreed.

    Too much about the mp-08 mold that bothers me. The super high shoulders is the biggest problem.

    The KO got the size right though.

    The more I think about it, the less I'd want an upscaled KO. I want to see what FT and GP bring to the table (I really hope this news doesn't stop FT from doing their own).

    Wowsers thats big...

    If I was only going to get 1 Dinobot, this would probably be it. However, I want them all and only FT is bringing the aesthetics Im looking for.

    This shouldnt effect FT at all, this monster will look silly next to the other FT figs -Swoop is the same size as MP-10!

    Yup, I already have the smaller version of this mold, so I want something different now.

    I'll get it just because I like grimlock. I'll just give him his own display

    Gonna have to wait to see what FT's Grimnock will look like before I could consider this. To me, Scoria is the new standard bearer for what I want in masterpiece dinos.

    No way. The boots that came with Scoria is enough for me, until we get a completely new mold or go with FT's version.

    This giant MP-08 mold not for me. People who like it ... Grats though :)

    I'm already 500+ dollars invested in FT's dinobots, so I'm full steam ahead with their line. Though cool, I'm gonna pass on this and wait on FT.
