    So a realistic face? I’m sure someone will do an upgrade set for that.
    Man I’ve been wanting a BW Grimlock for ages. Hasbro Pulse exclusive! Come on! I’d sell.

    It’s times like these I lament that Wolfang did not appear in the shows and will likely not receive an update in MP. Maybe his release in the Telemocha series would be close enough though? Or maybe not.

    I had Wolfgang at release and was always bummed that he was cut last minute.

    Sadly I fear an MP Wolfgang will never happen officially. They aren’t going through the old toy catalogues. They’re going through the show and then if the mold lends itself conveniently to a non-show figure then they can recoup some costs there.

    I’d like a Wolfgang but it seems highly improbable.

    And the far more boring alternative to Galva Convoy that we're sure to get, Black Lio Convoy—in both toy and "out of color toner in the copy machine" varieties.

    Sorry for retreading your 'bash, Kabar, but I was working up toy color Black Lio anyway.

    Thought I'd share some of the progress I've made on my Japanese Maximal display. Only need the Magnaboss and Tripledacus to complete the two lines! I'd like to hear what you guys think. The only issue I'm having is Tonbot and Big Mos.. I'd love to get them up into the air at some point. Just need to figure out if a stand would work or if I need to hang some fishing line down from the ceiling. As you can see I display Robot Masters and Euro Transmetals in here too just because they don't really fit anywhere else atm.

    haha it's all good the more the merrier! Yours are looking quite nice!!!

    Stop, stop! I’m drooling!

    Man I just love these toys. Seriously considering a method of reacquiring some of them. But where are your non-show US releases?

    Edit: also, bold of you to put Randy on display.

    Non! Show! Figures! Are! Underappreciated!

    I'd like to have a MP Wolfang too, it was one of my first BW toys. Maybe we would see a MP Max-B if we are lucky, if Takara is going to release more BWII MPs.

    So I was on vacation at Universal Orlando last week, and one of the ride attendants at "Escape From Gringotts", recognized and complimented my Dinobot shirt I was wearing, even had a short conversation about Beast Wars. Felt good man.

    They also have this guy on display in the Transformers store.

    So does Razorbeast count as a leader of a group of Maximals?

    Thanks buddy!

    Sadly the non-show US releases are all in storage right now :( 

    If I ever get a new bookshelf, I will gladly get them all back out again. I'm working with a small space and currently Marvel Legends took over the shelf that they were on.

    Oh and on the Randy... he is actually already broken LOL. He's pushed back a bit.. so if he falls he won't fall the full 5+ feet and hit the ground below. He'll just fall flat on his face.. I mean he might still break from just that though.

    Thanks! I'd been doing some gardening (if you can call laying fake grass as actual gardening haha), and had a brainwave.

    I have MP Primal striking a chilled pose on that shelf now.

    I would disappoint my parents for either of those.

    I'd say a pretty decent non-transforming stand-in for Grimlock is Mattel's Indominus Rex toy. It's white/grey, appropriately massive and really rocks the Grimlock vibe.
