I'm waiting to see how much Ebay sellers will have this new version for.
Waiting for reviews first and actual onhand pics before buying it again, i got the silver reximus, floppy legs and tail end.. I hope they fixed the tolerance on it
YES!!!! ABOUT DAMN TIME!!!
Right. It only took about 3 or 4 years.
and to FINALLY have the colors right. though once I get it, I will be making its head all black as I did when I have the silver one previously. and jream adapters with kfc delta hands of course!
I'll be getting @jream 's hadn adapters and KFC Delta Magnus hands as well.
The kit works great, too! I actually left the stock right "perma-fist" on so he can still light his sword up, and used the Jream kit to give him an expressive left hand.
Well I'm not much of a reviewer but it looks like I'll be able to get some photos soon. It's already in customs. That's unprecedented for me: shipped two days ago and already through the isc. If they don't hang onto it for too long, I may have him as early as Friday.
I've never actually seen my tracking info mention customs before, though. Does that mean it was selected for inspection? If so, that's obnoxious; hope they don't take too long.
[Edit 3/30] Out for delivery! Shipped from TFD four days ago and it's already in my town. That's a new record for me! Just went on ebay and placed an order for the delta magnus hands. Was gonna' order Jream's adapters but I looked at them and it's literally just a balljoint on the end of a post. Sure, $8 isn't much but I can make my own and 3d print them myself and have them within a few hours rather than waiting to have them made and shipped.
When I get home, I'll mess around with him and probably snap a few pics.
Came home and found my new OS Grimlock! Fastest delivery I've ever gotten from China.
I'll just give a few impressions as I'm sure anybody interested in this figure had already checked out the reviews. The joints are all quite a bit tighter than they were on my Hasbro MP08. Like the previous releases, the gimmick where you move his tail to make his head move doesn't work even though there's some toothed gears in there that make it look like it should. The grey plastic is slightly darker than the Hasbro but again, it's a slight difference. I found it very difficult to unpeg his chest in robot mode so that I could transform him into dino but it finally released and nothing broke. His packaging is a nondescript brown box if anybody cares about that.
And here's a couple of quick snaps:
One thing I'm a little disappointed in is his robot mode hips. I had hoped since the description said his coloring was based on the Japanese release, that his hips would have the black detailing that was missing on the Hasbro version but, sadly, it doesn't. And when I say disappointed, understand that I mean a tiny tiny disappointment in a figure that I'm otherwise thrilled with.
[Edit] Oh and one more like difference: the Hasbro's tail was chrome but the tip was plain silver. This one is chrome all the way to the tip. Also the points on his crown are super pointy compared to the original and, unfortunately, the mold seam is more prevalent in the front of the crown.
Hmmm decisions decisions... Ohh the temptations to get this 50 sins of grey..
The OS reximus in Japanese colors is in stock and ready to go.
For anyone on the fence regarding @jream hand adapter, it's the best add on I've ever bought and makes the greatest difference of any add on I've ever picked up.
Spend the $8 after you've spent $100 on the figure and you won't regret it.
And don't forget $20 for the hands themselves. I shopped around and the only place I found them was eBay.
Thx Wes glad you like them!
I've scoured this thread and haven't really seen anything, does anyone have this dude next to the Giga Dinos in bot modes?
Great pictures. Thanks.
But the chrome had something.
Is it somewhere available in marvel or G1 color?
Best bet is the Giga thread, the Garviter one has some
Not that I'm aware of. It dried up a little over a month ago. I was disappointed because I had just decided to buy it a day after seeing it in stock on ShowZ's site but when I went to buy it, it was gone. Couldn't find it anywhere. So glad this reissue/recolor came out.
Just bought this big boy. And saw a reviewer from China, review this KO OS Grimlock.
Totally up to you but I found they made a huge improvement to the kiddie hands he comes with stock.
