    No sure if anyone has already had these up on this forum.

    But I came across this picture set while was on Actoys' Transformers toys discussion board. The person who posted pictures also wrote: The other variation to Takara version is that Hasbro one doesn't come with the intelligence-transfer device, tray, wine glasses, apron and bow tie, and less metallic looking in overall, but it has a crown!

    Add: its dino craws are just as dull as the teeth.

    It all looked good until the teeth.

    Still may buy it though. Any pics of the beast mode arms? I imagine the claws have been rounded off a bit as well.

    liking this a lot. glad i held out for the US release. i remember reading from a fellow member saying that they'd be the teeth were going to be flattened. they were right. but it's not too bad though.

    which sword is the US release?

    Huh, expected the teeth to be far duller. What about the claws?

    I'm sooooo anticipating this release! I just hope he's not impossible to find. I could care less about the tray and crap. The only nonweapon accessory I wanted was the crown.

    They made Grimlock's teeth less Grimlock-y. Stupid child safety laws.

    I'm not so sure... in the pic with the 2 swords, the clear one looked less pointy at the tip (like what happened with the teeth). Also, in the pic with Grimlock holding the sword it appears he is holding the clear one :( .

    I don't like the Hasbro version as much as the Takara but I may get it because I want the crown. What is the release date in US?

    Yep, they are just as dull as the teeth, according to the person who posted thread on actoys.

    Those close ups of Grimlock's crotch make me uncomfortable.
