    Has this been officially announced? Something about the box seems off to me, and with the recent KO'S of the Lambos showing up, this has me a bit worried..

    I personally love the white box! That stuff is Chinese art at the heart of Grimlock box. Go search for some chinese classic art out there, this box do true justic to Asian exclusive.

    I think a lot of people is getting confused by the Snake Year Omega. This is nothing like that. Omega was all over the place, this won't be like that. Every time i get an update from the other side its all about less number being produced, and more restriction being put on it.

    I think this version is no longer some children's toy, its an art piece. I'm going to keep this box on the wall and its an art itselve.

    Hrmm, damn, well i'll see what the combined cost of figure + shipping is. I'm dying to get a Grimlock but he's so damned elusive, and with MP Soundwave and Metro coming up it's going to be a very tight few months.

    I carried all those items you want, but i will definitly not let Grimlock slip again. Out of all the MP out there I personally think Grimlock is the best one, and with this new white box, I think most people will like how the box look.

    Yeah, those aren't KO's. Just scrap units that somebody sold and people were silly enough to buy.

    Nothing to do with this release or an Asian exclusive grimlock.

    Guys don't believe the hype from this guy. This release is a general release. I've talked to many sellers on Taobao and they have all secured their supply. This guy is just trying to unload these asap to all you North American before the general release in August.

    That's kind of what I expected, but I just wanted to see his price on the site.

    IF he is lieing, then that's a pretty bad business move. Repeat business and all that.

    Oh I found the toy fair this Grimlock is an exclusive for:

    The Transformers China Exhibition, named "Cybertron Annual Exhibition" starts on August 15 in Beijing. The theme is Contemporary Chinese Transformers so the idea is going to be displays that integrate Transformers into traditional Chinese motifs. So the very Chinese looking box for this issue of Grimlock is just part of that event.

    I talked to one of the taobao sellers and she is guaranteeing her stock. She said if people don't pre-order deposit the price is likely to be much higher in the future. She can't release the price yet because <something I can't understand>. Sorry, my Chinese is awful.
