    I have both versions of this and FT Grinder. I pretty much in the FT dinos camp.

    I'll bet @jream will soon see a spike in demand for his Reximus Prime hand adapter kits. They allow you to attach KFC Delta Magnus hands for hull hand articulation. The kit also allows the new hands to wield the weapons.

    According to Show.Z it is though? Would be nice, as I always hated the silver paint.

    What's different? He's no longer chrome, I thought that was the only thing unoriginal about the previous Reximus.

    According to showz' website the reissue appears to be regular grey and not silver/chrome.

    Nice! That was the main thing stopping me from getting the previous version. As much as I liked the silver, it meant he'd always be a standalone. I wouldn't be able to get cesium or any of the dibots to go with him cuz they wouldn't match. With the grey, if I ever decide to go insane and pay Fanstoys' high prices, I won't have to replace grimlock.

    Ooh I hope this is correct... Missed out on the earlier versions of Reximus and not a fan of Grinder. If he's coming out in MP-08 colours that more than makes up for me not getting him sooner :rock

    I’m a fan of this grey ‘Japanese Version’ On ShowZ’s site vs the silver one on TFD. Did the previous two color schemes both have eyes that could swap between blue and red in both the Dino and robot modes? I’m hoping this grey one has the blue toon eyes as well...

    IIRC the eyes could swap out. That will likely be the case here.

    Not sure what product TFD is posting about - but it'll be available for $100 US shipped. it's supposed to be regular gray with black head, thighs, and hands.

    Highly recommend that if you decide to pick this up, to opt for the @jream hand adaptors and pick up a set of the KFC Magnus hands. Makes a HUGE improvement to the OS Reximus Prime!

    Let me know if you guys want more info...

    Right there with you. Had Grinder and wasn't totally enamored with it. I prefer the look of MP-08 and love that it's now going to be OS in toon gray. And at $100 no less. Already pre-ordered at ShowZ.
