    When they said it was a joint venture between the two, I assumed this was a decision made regardless of unification or not, hence there still being the differences in colours and release dates.

    Did we see any other releases after the MPM’s but before the PotP stuff?

    All TLK was pretty much the same, I know that.

    TakaraTomy Mall and the official TT TF site have updated the stock photo for Grimlock's beast mode. It's now properly transformed and doesn't have the gap.

    New photo

    Old photo for comparison

    You mean the preorder from TTM? That window came and went months ago.

    Probably licensing. Japan's turf belongs to Takara Tomy, not Hasbro, in the end.

    It means the preorders for Grand Max from the TakaraTomy Mall went up months ago and closed after so much time went by. The only way to get him now is other e-tailers or if they get extras in to sell when he comes out at month's end.

    I see, it is available as preorder at Kapow Toys, but it is so expensive that I will not get it in the end...
