    so i don't see much people talking about this piece and i would really like to know more info on this so i figured why not make a thread and have people share. . .

    anyone know a ETA on this? or an exact release date?

    everyone has been putting a 30-40.00 price tag on it but if i remember correctly from the SDCC pics the tag had said 19.99 price for release. i would really like to know what the deal is price wise.

    $20 is the US MSRP for Voyagers.

    Ultimately what the retailers wind up charging is their own prerogative.

    ETA: not nearly soon enough! Not very helpful but that's where it's at, I want it yesterday. Think the FOC Voyagers are not supposed to come until 2013. If we're lucky we get them in the States by the end of November.

    Definitely want this along with Dreadwing & Ultra Magnus, but for now I'm willing to wait until they show up.

    The only question is, do I display him in bot mode or dino mode in the classics collection. Don't think I will go down the road of buying two of this.....Unless I go with Takara.

    Discussing FOC Grimlock:

    In the game, the guy is a total Mary Sue and it infuriates me how they incorporate the dino-mode Hulk smash shit, especially when some objectives were only damageable in dino mode.

    Toywise, he's plastic sex. I already have a Classics Grimlock, but he may be demoted to Rippersnapper very very soon.

    So far the Grimlock toy looks pretty awesome (the FOC beef-block style works in its favor here). If there's a flaw, I'm thinking it might be kinda hollow underneath in dino mode, since the light-up head has to fit in there to light the chest in robot mode.

    How big is it again?

    I hope to use this to replace my MP Grimmy in classics display.
