    There's no shot there's boxes of this out there but noboyd has shown him off yet.

    My guess is they sent out Grimlock in the wrong boxes. No way we're doing embargoed shipments, right?

    Mismatched boxes are even better as a collector's item. We can all make a killing on ebay in about 10 years!

    Was posted in the grimlock thread by @Marctron who got the pic from aliexpress seller DP robot who said he had both grimlock and sludge in hand, and is gonna post grimlock for sale later this month and then sludge in june.

    My guess is he had pics from the manufacturer and is trying to make it seem like he's the first to have em in hand, so order thru me type thing.

    Honestly I don't know. What I do know is that in the past (didn't happen with the Combaticons for some reason) MS would have a flurry of releases in very quick succession between extended periods of silence. The could result from retailers having them in hand already, but I would think it would have leaked before now if that was the case.

    I’m too far into the newage rabbithole (got 3 of each dino) but unlike Grimlock, there’s nothing here to convince me to get this on top of NA.

    they’ve definitely got me for a painted grimmy whenever that happens.

    not a great comparison since NA promo pics are hyperglossy and oversaturated. The real deal is much lighter and closer to both MS and toon. Also fixed the robot claw colors.

    I do like the articulation on the dino mode more in the NA version, but Magic Square also gives extra love to the joints in the robot mode. If I could afford it, I would collect both sets, one for robot and the other for dino mode.
