    Newage NA H44EX YMIR (Toy Color) or searching the buy/sell forums here (which is what I did) may be your best bets.

    I found someone on AliExpress that has it for an okay price. Not a great one but still. Robotoybase is a rip-off though. Might have to trawl the BST like you said.

    I'm wondering if that figure was made for transformation scratch testing?

    Mold it in some obvious colors, paint all the surfaces that are likely to be painted with a shiny paint that easily shows flaws, then transform it a few times and see where the color shows through.

    maybe for like a quarter but that's basically all it is worth these things hold no real value. it's not like this is a hastak proto and even then only a small few are ever worth anything.

    most of the guys who bought into that fantasy are seriously regretting it. i see them on and off the goggles and everytime i do they are always trying to move their "grail" figs.

    Hasbro prototypes always have a market. Usually what happens is they will be plentiful for a couple of years and then when they disappear from the market for a few years they start climbing up in value quite a bit. Certain MP, CW, and Prime prototypes seemed to be the most plentiful, but even those started climbing in value quite a bit. I remember when you could pick up BW prototypes for around $50 for a deluxe. Now you can't touch them for under $200 to $300. Is it a ton of money, no, but it's still 5 x 6 times more than what they were. 3rd party prototypes I don't see pop up enough to really gauge them. I picked up a couple DX9 Carry testshots that had the original chest paint for around 2x as much as the retail one.

    For those who have the Comic, EX and Cartoon, are the head molds different? It looks like the EX and regular release have the same head, just different colors, whereas the Comic looks like it might be different. Is that correct, or do they all use the same mold with the exception of the SG ver?

    EX and Toon have the same headsculpt, antennae or whatever are straight vertical.
    Comic and Tiger G2 share heads, the sides are angled out a bit.
    And a few other slight differences, like the brows and faceplates.
    Not sure about the blue G2 head as I don't own him

    Nope, but have faith in ShowZ. It may take a while, but you'll get made right.
    My EX Sludge was missing a pin to hold the left robot arm in place. Seemed like months went by, but I got an entire replacement for the arm, housing, and wing.

    I actually bought it because of the comic head, I love how it looks on him!

    Yeah, it’s a tough call between Banana’lock and the SG for me, but I’m-a go Tigrex, too.

    It’s also a shame that NA pulled their bait and switch with the G2 Grim and put out their mauve avenger instead of actually figuring out how to make metallic blue paint, but maybe Magic Square can figure out how to make blue plastic with their superior mold. :cool:

    SG Grimlock would be a close second but I love the details and the metallic paint on the G2

    Also, I am willing to bet that MS will never release a G2 Tiger Grimlock, traditionally they have not been keen on repaints
