That's true. Would FT be better then?
Ah, so many dinobots
I honestly don't know if FT would be better. First, I think you'd need the X versions of FT because otherwise the unpainted gray of the FT regular dinos won't go with Rex's silver finish. But then you're also dealing with the fact that Rex is taller than all the FT guys. And I'm not sure the gold chrome on FT's will match any better. I don't remember seeing pics of Rex with the X dinos.
Yeah the chromes and grays are different. I have both versions of reximus (the comic version has a chrome that is much closer to Giga chrome) so I'm making a hybrid to match the Gigasaurs.
Personally, I would not display Rexy with GP dinos because stylistically they do not share the same aesthetic. GP dinos have more curves and an almost bloated proportion in their arms and chests, where as Reximus has the straight lines and hard edges from the much older MP mold. GP dinos have a more detailed modern look, where as Rex is simplified. They simply don't mesh and look like they're from different lines- thats excluding the blatant differences of the placement of the alt mode legs. The tone of the chrome is also not the same.
Reximus looks better with Fanstoys, even if he's a little out of scale. It still works. You can even move him to your Season 3 display as his increased sized works with Ultra Magnus- since MP-22 is a tad large. Pop his crown on and he fits as Reximus Prime- the last dinobot survivor of 2006.
The MP08/RP mold looks nice except for the hand with no finger articulation and the fact that the shoulder tops are too high up.
But he is a bit too small.
Yeah you're right about the shoulders- now add that to my 4 other talking points and we have arrived at 5 reasons why they visually don't work well together.
The gray tones of the finishes don't match either- but people will see what they want to see.
To each his own.
I hope Giga makes their Grimlock a little bit taller than the others, even if it's just a head
Recently ordered this guy from a seller (ShowZ) mentioned by a member on here, because I haven't been able to find a standard FT Grinder anywhere and originally saw Reximus on sale (and then out of stock) before I even realised Grinder even existed (midway through last year). After ordering, I noticed ShowZ had Grinder listed! $100 more, but still... now I'm suffering buyer's remorse, and he hasn't even arrived yet. I don't have enough spare cash to order Grinder as well I'd prefer not to have Reximus sitting around if/when I ever get Grinder from a re-release in the future, but I guess he's going to unintentionally be my 'stand in' until that happens.
For those who have Reximus Prime, I hope I'll join you in loving him once he turns up
There's plenty of people that want Reximus. Selling him shouldn't be a problem.
I'd be interested in Reximus if you sell depending on price!
Here is RP (toon/toy colors) from a legit seller I've bought from.
Transformers Large MP08 Grimlock oversize Japanse Version paint NEW IN STOCK | eBay
Are there any retailers that still have Reximus? I kinda decided on a whim that I was gonna get him last payday and that was right when showZ ran out (literally missed him by a day). Can't even find him on eBay now. Not looking for used/opened - only interested if it's new in sealed box. Also not interested in the blue one. Needs to be black.
If I can't find him, I guess that's fine - obviously if I'd really wanted him, I had two years to do it.
 Hm. Found one listing on aliexpress but it's by @ShowZStore. I kinda' figure if his store is out then he probably doesn't have any for aliexpress either and just hasn't updated the listing.
I'm in the same boat, hopefully someone knows where to find it. The other mp grimlocks don't do it for me as much. Thats what I get for waiting.
Reximus is being reissued.

Nice! Oddly, I searched tf-direct but didn't see that listing. Thanks!
Thanks for stopping me from doing something drastic!!
That's great news. Any word on the comic color version?
Nice to see that tf-direct has lowered the price from $159 to $109 shipped.
I don't know about the comic colored version.
I've got my Reximus mixed in w/ my FT Dibots. Think it looks good even though he is the only chromed out guy in the group.
