    Had to get some pics of Blackout with all the Grindor excitement going on:

    2A684757-1566-4904-A1A6-271FF292F3DA.jpeg

    This figure really is incredible. Like I’ve mentioned before, the only issue I have with it are the hands.

    Looking at Grindor’s scenes from the movie again, his CH-53 actually has those black stripes I painted on top of Blackout. I’ll be sure to paint those on Grindor as well!

    That IS sad! Not sure why Hasbro allows the internet steal their thunder. Oh well, looks good. I was hoping for a bit more variance but the hands and ravage are enough to make me buy. Now i wonder if WJ will oversize a Grindor again since their Hide Shadow has dried up and have shot up in price.

    That's what I'm thinking too, I've already got blackout and Grindor doesn't seem different enough. There isn't much of a... Repaint either, this is more so a Blackout V2, but seeing the others happy makes me happy too

    I'm not too fussed about the alt mode being the same, I mean... Lmao if people didn't say blackout and Grindor were different in design, I would have never noticed. Although I wish he was taller, there doesn't seem a way since it wouldn't fit in leader class anymore. So besides that, it's as good as it gets I guess

    I don’t think Weijiang exists anymore, unless they were also part of Black Mamba.

    In other news, Grindor looks fantastic. I’m so glad I can have a version of this mould in my collection.

    I decided to see how big MT Devastator might be next to my HA/MPMs, but I only have MT-03, but holy crap!

    Man, I always wanted HA mudflap. I just love those cars as figures. But Unfortunately I can't find one that not insanely priced and ended up selling skids not having his twin.

    Hey, that reminds me, I have some extra Waterslide decals for projects I probably won’t need. They are mostly MPM scaled and intended for the unbranded KOs but some appear to be deluxe size too. I have a ton of Barricade decals too including the Police, Punish & Enslave, Decepticon Shield, and car numbers in various sizes. PM me if any of you need any of these for projects, I have a few extras.

    Also if you want to purchase this set, you can get them from here on taobao, I even got a kit for LT-03 Bumblebee for the missing hood stripes and 3D Chevy logos from the same seller.

    The yellow box around Grindor's window makes me nostalgic for that old Voyager Blackout. I found out the Pave Low actually has that yellow border but it's inside the window rather than outside.

    Hey! Unfortunately mine didn't come with any batteries. I heard that some stores take them out to ensure faster shipping or something. If your item contains batteries then it could take way longer to get through customs.
    Haha same! It really wasn't until people started talking about it here in this thread that I knew that Grindor was even a little bit different.
    Yeah same thing happened to me. Skids was a fun figure but I don't think I ever even saw Mudflap in stores and back then buying online wasn't nearly as ubiquitous as it is now so I also gave up.
