    2018, but they might still be remade again or some distributor or wholesaler might have some stashed in the back of their warehouse and will resurface when they clean it out.

    Because some erroneously think this is a Sir Toys fan thread.

    It's not a complaint. 52toys products are not KOs.

    Maybe better to just have it in its own thread.

    Was going to update my post with the thread link. Yes, they've been able to make great transforming figures from cubes. I like their upcoming one - Firmhand.

    I have no regrets in buying it ages ago and adding to the pile of Grimlocks around these parts. But he's smaller than the new SS movie Grimlock, so doesn't scale if you're going with the actual scale and not like head cannon or your personal preferences etc, which is also a valid choice. The robot head is very simplified and overall he nices nicer in dino mode, but is too small.

    I should say the ROBOT mode of SS Grim scales nicely, but i still keep my MP Grim for the dino mode as that scales better, SS Grim is too short in dino mode, but fine in robot mode scale wise.

    The zhu jiang or whatever they called it back then OS does have some nice bulk to it in both modes. It's a fairly decent but cheaply made ko. Worth the price if you don't overpay for it, and it can work in a classics / chug collection.

    Huh. I thought it would be bigger. Weird but still neat.

    Omg, is that a custom Arcee made from Chromia and a dye bath? That's hilarious! I was just thinking about that yesterday!
