    Nice, proportions look on point! I don't collect non-combiner Legends but I will be very tempted to pick this guy up!
    Only nitpick so far is that it looks like he might be missing his front upper teeth, but it's hard to say because of the lighting.

    Lots of little things that make this a lot better than NewAge's offering IMO:

    -Part of the robot chest folds away to hide the Autobot symbol in dinosaur mode
    -Functioning knees in dino mode
    -Robot inner legs fully covered
    -Better articulated dino arms

    Only flaw I'm seeing right now is the underbite... Give him some front chompers!

    I'm stunned by how great this looks! Improves on NA's version in almost every respect. I'm really curious about the colours and how big he is vs. Prime. And how he looks from behind in bot mode!


    Suffice it to say I've already pre-ordered direct with Magic Square.

    Yeah, he'll be 2 inches taller than Prime. Seems about right. Or at least close.

    13cm tall is 5 inches. That's Prime's and Megatron's height. He's not their height.

    MS Prime is 11.5cm tall (just measured him). 13 cm is perfect for Grimlock. 20cm is ridiculous and makes him taller than MS Jetfire.

    MS begs to differ and my tape measure that says they are 5 inches also begs to differ.

    No,
    Prime's height is 11,5 cm.

    13 cm is a good size.

    Wrong. You need to get your tape measure refunded, it's clearly faulty.

    Happy for my MS bros! I picked up the MK KO of NA last year that fixes all the issues with Ymir, so no point in me buying this one. Probably.


    We'll see!
