    Thank you! :thumb 

    Yeah I can agree to that, especially since the other dinos don't have the same look.

    I think what I'm going to do, is display the normal one with my other dinobots and then use the metallic one as my main Grimlock. That way I can have one in Dino mode and one in robot mode. :D

    Yeah, I think the metallic one would be a good "desk-bot" and the other the one you keep with the gang. I think the mistake PX made was lightening the black on the figure. Keeping it dark would've made the metallic sheen more provocative.

    Ahh yeah that would have looked even better! I wish they had changed the color of the weapons more. Like a totally different color completely.

    Awesome pics, Nemesis!!

    Liking this deco too much. It does put it slightly out of place with the other D-bots, but I like the distinction. I hope this prompts PX to do a metallic deco of the rest of the dinobots.

    Just ordered Vulcun...and I have Caelus...I want so much to go all-in on the Planet X series, because I love the FoC designs...but with all the MPs I buy, and my other hobbies...it's hard to justify another $80-$100 per figure addiction...and then there's Omega Supreme and Trypticon to contend with...

    Gonna try for at least a complete set of dinobots...but unless they reissue Neptune that's gonna be hard to come by...

    Just saw they're doing the metallic version, and I might have to cave and get him.

    Also, what Shockwave is that pictured above?

    Are you talking about this guy?

    If so he is the Second Chance Shockwave. A kinda up-scaled version of the official deluxe Shockwave.

    Anyone looking for the Fireblast version of this guy?

    If so, I have him loose/complete in my sales thread.

    I really love the mold, but sadly have no place for him anymore.

    Yeah he does have some improvements, but dang he is made of a cheap plastic and his altmode looks like a hot mess. He does make a good FOC Shockwave though, but I wouldn't recommend messing with him too much or he might break. :(  Atleast mine will.

    He totally lives up to the hype!

    Seeing this thread motivated me to pull this guy off the shelf and mess with him. I'm falling in love all over again, this figure is still a straight-up triumph.

    Just broke down and bought this guy new for 135 after shipping. Starscream is getting seriously outnumbered lol. Planet X definitely favors the autobots.

    But...but there's 4 other Seekers, a giant dinosaur, and a brand new Megatron that just came out, along with Insecticons on the way. :lol
