    Oh, cool news for you guys in Canada. :D 

    This means, more than likely, that MP Grimmy will show up sometime next year in Malaysian Toys'R'Us system... (hopefully) :(

    From what's been shown so far, it looks like it only comes with his gun, sword and a crown. No other accessories.

    I might pick one up just so my Takara version has a crown.

    yeah i really just want the crown for my Takara Grimlock too. I just wonder if there will be returns for this guy with the crown mysteriously gone. I'd like to get it for the crown and now my son could play with it and i wont have to worry about my figure getting destroyed.

    WOW! I honestly didn't expect it to drop for that low! I own the Takara, but am seriously debating picking up another Gimmy. Just wondering what they'll cut corners on.

    Didn't ever see MP Skywarp around my Wal-Marts, then again I already owned the Takara, but if I ever spotted him on clearance...

    As far as pricing goes, just be glad you yanks (I'm Canadian btw) always benefit, no matter the exchange rate. The USD and Cdn $ are currently almost at parity, but Grimlock will most certainly be below $70 US. FYI if I were walk into a TRU and pick up a TRU Re-issue Perceptor right now: $49.99 Cdn...which comes to $48.01 US @ today's rate (when it started @ $34.99 US south of the border) :sly2:  Le sigh

    Man I gotta stop impulse-buying stuff. I paid full price for Shout!'s complete G1 series box set and then other places had it cheaper, and I paid over $100 for Grimlock and now he'll be cheaper in the states.

    Hmm... maybe they'll alter him somehow to make it so that it was a good thing that I bought the Japanese version :D

    Skywarp was over produced and a repaint of a previously released mold. Grimlock is very desirable and will be under ordered to ensure sell through. Buy it when you see it or pay more for it later.
