    The only thing I'm not liking are the hinges that are visible in dino-mode. The clean lines of that mode are part of the look. It is a niggle though as he looks very promising.

    Dinobot is - need bigger and clearer pics. I want to like him, but I'm no longer a TFCC member and can't make out enough from this image. I do like what I can see, but I will reserve judgment.

    Hey Glitcher,
    For the record....my problem with Henkei Skywarp and Thundercracker was the price..not the chrome. :thumbs2:

    True, but think of MP Starscream's prototype, he had entirely different legs and a different waist.
    True, his final release was horrible compared to the prototype, but it means this may not be the final mold.

    good point on proto starscream's legs, they sure look a lot more bulky and strong

    let's just hope grimlock makes the diference and it gets BETTER than the prototype (hard thing to happen but ... )

    Which means this mold could potentially suck. Uh-oh...

    It may seem odd, but the exposed hinges are one of the reasons I like this guy. Goes along with their reasoning for the rivets on him. That he's a bot made buy other bots. That and it plays more to him being a bit more primitive than the others.

    Judging by how much they price imported toys, I'd say it's roughly in the Voyager-Ultra size category.

    $44.90 sounds about right when the JPY price is 3990 (seen in the first page).

    I'd really like to preorder Mickey, but part of me wonders if he'll get a domestic release. Hasbro DOES have the license to make Mickey Mouse toys, so there shouldn't be a legal problem there. And if they don't think he would sell at mass retail, they could make him an exclusive for the Disney Store, Disneyland, Disney.com, or HTS, there are all sorts of options.

    At times like this, I wish Hasbro could give straight "yes" or "no" answers as to whether they're releasing items. I understand there are good reasons why they can't, but it puts them in an awkward place where they're actually competing with Takara-Tomy for my money.

    MP Grimlock shall be mine. The "Waiter mode" makes me laugh my a$$ off. I see the Serving tray in the Proto type pics, I wounder if he will come with a Vest and Bow-Tie, That would make it so much more funnier.

    P.S.
    Dose anyone have a pic of Gimmy when he wore the Waiter Outfit in the series ?

    I do hope he comes with his proper gun; putting a twatty serving tray in instead of his proper weaponry = fail.
