    Yes... those two accessories will be thrown to the side and forgotten about when I get my MP Grimlock. I honestly hated the way that they treated the Dinobots in S3... I mean, they were never as awesome in the toon as they were in the comics, but being turned into slap stick comedy relief was not cool at all...

    I didn't even notice that. They put apron, serving tray, and brain cap thing. But no Crown? What a let down.

    The crown will probably be included in the eventual Hasbro release, if there is one.

    I just placed an order at BBTS, not going to let this pass me by. I know I will want this later. I'm just not sure if I will open him.

    Yeah, exactly. That is what is making me not jump all over this right now. I know it's going to do nothing but go up in price after it's release, but still....$130-$140 is a lot of cashola.

    Okay, cool! I just picked mine up, I bought it for $102.38, it was Y9,999 at Y94 = $1. I feel sorry for you guys who are paying $140 for him, but with shipping costs and whatever import taxes there may be (and the vendor making a profit)...guess that's about right

    Unfortunatley I can't right now, i just managed to grab it at lunch and have a meeting right now, then school right after work till 11 pm. I'll try to post a whole review tomorrow night complete with comparison pics with Trypticon, Fortress Maximus, and Metroplex. Someone also requested one with Gnaw. Any requests, I'll see what I can do.

    Yup, I picked it up at the Awase Toys R Us here in Okinawa.
