Some Detailed Pictures of Hasbro's Masterpiece Grimlock (Comparing to Takara's)

No sure if anyone has already had these up on this forum.

But I came across this picture set while was on Actoys' Transformers toys discussion board. The person who posted pictures also wrote: The other variation to Takara version is that Hasbro one doesn't come with the intelligence-transfer device, tray, wine glasses, apron and bow tie, and less metallic looking in overall, but it has a crown!


All pics are from [Links are hidden for guests. Please Register.]


Add: its dino craws are just as dull as the teeth.













Additional strips on the Hasbro version






Its teeth are not as sharp comparing to Takara's





Takara version






Tip of tail: surface of Takara version's is a bit coarser... (see the one on right)








Hasbo's has extra gold paint






Comparing here to Takara's







Hasbro's thighs are way darker






Comparing them to Takara's







Not so sure which one is which?

It all looked good until the teeth.

Still may buy it though. Any pics of the beast mode arms? I imagine the claws have been rounded off a bit as well.

liking this a lot. glad i held out for the US release. i remember reading from a fellow member saying that they'd be the teeth were going to be flattened. they were right. but it's not too bad though.

which sword is the US release?

Huh, expected the teeth to be far duller. What about the claws?
