    Gotta compare the Chrome ones to the Metallics myself, but I put my POs in on the entire set since, well, that's the only way so far I can secure the entire set! Haha. Been meaning to retire my MP-08 Grimlock sooner or later with Grinder, but Superator and Friends are more than happy to play the parts until those reissues ever come to light.

    Random bump but if anyone is selling the flame effects that came with the metallic set let me know. I have them for snarl and slag, so I would like to pick them up for the rest as well!

    It seems that the blue chrome version of this guy is getting a reissue..... but I am really looking for a red chrome version. Does anyone know where I can find one at this late stage in the game? Thanks.

    Thanks.... but I need the shiny shiny chrome wings...... :D 

    The thing that I dont understand is that Gigapower are not rereleasing the red chrome version because 'it didnt sell well' and yet thats the version that is like hens teeth to find right now!
    I would have thought that cartoon people would want the blue metallic version, while toy people (like me) would want the red chrome version, so it would make sense to release those two versions......

    In the end, I have a choice between a blue chest when I want red, or metallic wings when I want chrome, and right now I have a blue chrome version preordered.

    It is because red chrome still have a lot of stock in China, which is around $110 but not many people buy it.

    Metallic is likely to be my ideal version, but I sprang for the Chrome while I could since I joined late enough to the game to miss out on both Fans Toys and Giga's sets the first time around, so seeing these pop up now than later is great. Was gonna end up replacing my MP-08 Grimlock sooner or later anyway.

    Anyone who has both the Chrome and Metallic in-hand of any of the Giga Dinobots, any way we could get a comparison shot between both?

    As for the sales, I think the Red Chrome ended up being that perfect storm for being the least purchased version. Most MP collectors would likely go for the blue, and most would likely get the straight regular version, and then the metallic second.

    Swoop came in red and blue for both chrome and metallic. Unless you're asking something else.

    I cant help thinking that it would have been less confusing if they had just released two versions - metallic and chrome, like the other four - and each version came with both a red and a blue chest plate.

    Hello,
    after a very very long gap I’m back to transformers. Love cannot die :) 
    I have the first red chrome Gaudenter. Today was the first time I transformed him. In Dinomode there is a visible gap an the lower torso. Is this normal? If not does somebody know if there is a way to close it completely?
    Thanks a lot.

    Pics please.

    It sounds like you didn't press the torso buttons that pop it out.
