Thanks. It's not often I get a good shot but when I do I'm rather pleased with it.
is Servo Core the best option for an IDW LL Grimlock?
I don't think so. As it stands I'd actually say maybe Toyworld's would be best? Severo (LER) is too, well, LER, and this guy is just not really Dino at all? Take away the colours and head sculpt (which even then has a silver face mask) and there's nothing Grimlock about it. Might just need to wait for MMC.
Its pretty damn close to war within grimlock, but yea as an actual dino grimlock it's not good at all for that.
Ordered this from ActionRobo. Stating shipped within 2 days of ordering. Only $80 on their site so we’ll see how this goes. He completes my Warbot series to this point.
hope they release a trailer for this
I think Spence has a little bigger pov here though..Not about more product = more money. Gotta brush up on your Shark Tank ;-) ..just because a mold is paid for, that is only one mold. That has to be retooled every time fans complain they don't want just another repaint. Then paint.. has to be painted right? Tampo? For a 3p company, even just a repaint usually requires payment out of pocket. We know a lot of 3p companies are as small as a few dudes. Can you afford 20k tomorrow on a gamble? If you output say 5k copies of a repainted steelcore and it doesn't sell. You are sitting on a lot of burned cash. Not to mention you'd be crapping 4 leaf clovers to get a manufacturer to run as little as 5k copies out of a plant. As well, almost guaranteed you need connections in China. Somewhere over seas at least, yeah? No chance you can afford it in NA. I mean.. I want more too but. .I just think Spence has a point. And that's how more $ = less profit. Like Spence said. It's complicated. Sometimes you throw more money at a problem and you just throw out more money..
Look on the bright side.. if these are all super exclusive, maybe FP is just using up stock and giving you something to look at while they are making more new stuff like everyone wants..kastor/Roller looks pretty cool so, maybe right?
...... Little late to the party there bud, but good job on the useless necro bump.
Did I really just see a “parents basement” joke in a discussion thread about repaint of an original 3p figure done up as a War Within Grimlock tribute?
Don’t knock it till you tried it... funerals.
So this is resurrecting a dead convo slightly however, i just bought this guy and absolutely love him, and he kind of plays off of the IF Asura Knights. Would love to see Fansproject continue with the other dinobots. I'm getting into the core lineup and have Steel Core on the way.
