Where is my blue g2 version?!
Price just reduced on bbts, and why does tfsource list it as an Asian exclusive?
YAY!!! Even better.
I really want an MP Grimlock, but I want a Grimlock that is taller than MP-10.
Oh, that is sorely tempting...especially for $199...
Really tempting. I'll probably wait till they relist it for preorder in Asia.
Yup.. Got the email too...
not a bad price....(i am however SOOOOOO happy i got the hasbro one 2X when i did for $60!!) i wonder what the coin to crown thing is...sounds like a cheap paper extra or a cool addition? hopefully it isn't as loose as the AE chinese toy show exclusive was rumored to be.
seriously! until TT redoes him so he is taller somoene (3PC!!!) should make him "lift shoes" like tom cruise wears. Also you can make him taller by extending his chest abdomen "joint" (quote because it doesn't actually lock or ... you know join) and sticking something in there to wedge it up. those 2 things combined....that'll give him almost an inch and he'll be taller than mp-10. i wonder why nobody has done it (yes partsformer but whatever bot mode would loook better).
With the re-release of Starscream and now Grimlock, I wonder what the chances are of an MP-09 Rodimus re-release eventually?
Ehhh, yeah fine, I'll take one too.
I'm going to wait for HLJ, etc. They will probably have it for much cheaper than BBTS.
I have Asia MP-11 on preorder also, but if it is going to rerelease in Japan, then I might as well cancel the preorder and wait for that to show up on HLJ as well.
You mean $199.99 + shipping. How do they continue to compete with TFSource?
$200 isn't a terribad price; still high, but doable. I'm wondering what the collector coin does and how it transforms into a crown? Or is it a crown and a flame cover for Grimmy's sword? Really curious how Takara would be able to pull that off without it being some papercraft thing or a hot mess like a disjointly articulated Arms Micron type accessory?
At any rate, I am SO glad I held off on getting the Asian exclusive. I had it in my PoL but I came to my senses and just went, "Am I really that crazy to spend $300 on an MP Grimlock? With a crown? A Malibu Stacy crown? Eff dat," and promptly took it out of my PoL for store credit. $200 is easier to swallow, and I can pick up that Asian Henkei Jetfire too for the same total price as one Asian MP Grimlock.
I held off with the Asia Exclusive overpriced set at near 400, 200 I can do no problem for a character such as Grimlock. Worth every penny. Pre-ordered with TF source, because of the free fedex ground shipping and $15 cheaper then BBTS, which is normally my go to place. Odd that BBTS didnt try to do a sale on him to on first pre-order launch. But competition is always good for the customer.
Yeah... I can confirm this after handling him a bit. His legs and arms were both fairly floppy. I didn't notice it at first just standing him in robot mode, but if you try to pull off stronger poses you can tell. Of course, they could have had these in the same run as the exclusive, either way. Glad I picked up an old run Takara so I'll know the difference.
I'm really surprised they are doing another release on this mold. But I guess money talks and it'll make some people happy. haha.
how much was the takara MP-08 when it first came out?
Ugh. Wish I hadn't sprung for the Asia exclusive version. Wonder if I can still get my $250 back for that one and get this instead.
What is this coin they're talking about?
Separate names with a comma.
