    No offense but since you made it known your buddies with the G1Upper guys and this Workshop group, of course your going to buy it if not get it for free.

    The head design looks promising but its a pass for me. What would be cool is a flaming sword for MP Grimlock. Hopefully its one of the yet to be revealed accesories.

    Seconding this, I've always hated that MP-08x Grimlock has a really nice looking sword which never appeared in the regular Takara or Hasbro versions.

    I don't see the point. MP Grimlock is fine as-is.

    yeah he's fine as he is, but that add-on, if I had an extra MP Grimlock, would allow me to have a Grimlock on my MP shelf, and another with my G1 redux shelf. it would allow me to differentiate the two.

    I don't plan on getting this, but it could be a worthwhile kit to some. I'm curious about the other accessories.

    The finish doesn't seem to match the one from figure. Not feeling that head either, it looks like it belong to another body.

    It's nicely made, and if you're a fan of the IDW look it does the job well. I just think MP Grimmy is perfect.
