    It's already started, depends in your retailer,

    In the UK my preferred retailer is Kapow, they had Grove in stock on May 1st, he wasn't in stock long, I was lucky enough to grab one, it should be in hand in the next day or two.

    To think I nearly double dipped CW/Tak just to get Grove, I'm glad I didn't now, the anime deco didn't really grab me anyhow.

    After seeing the comparison shots, it is obvious that Takara is the clear winner....









    Honestly, outside of the stamping, look damn near identical to me. Glad we get this, though I already have the UW.

    Yep, I owned the UW version too when it first came out. It was a winner in my books already. Good for those who can finally get him without spending a lot for another set. This will probably cause the UW version to become cheaper in the future. Also good for those who plan on getting the whole Defensor/Guardian set or if they prefer G1 style.

    Yea, I was lucky, my buddy who is working in China was coming back home for a visit soon after his release, he was able to carry a set over for me for a little less than $100 for the set. Already had the Hasbro, and strangely Defensor has become my favorite combiner of the bunch released thus far, after the stock photos made it look terrible.

    Nice comparison, but HOW can you get him? There are no preorders on HTS yet, or Amazon. And I refuse to use a second hand shop like BBTS that puts on extra price.

    I've seen your "second hand shops" be cheaper than those "first hand shops"

    Got my Groove today from Robot Kingdom, and All I can say is wow, I am so glad I didn't buy that protectobot set!! this is the definitive groove. If they would have sold me 2 I would have been happier but, that's ok, I can find another to open later, Defensor is finally complete atleast. 29.90 is an awesome price. I Tried the 2 different e-mail trick on them to get 2 and they are quick on the draw, canceling the order as fast as I could place it! Definitely worth 29.90. Considering Australia pays 30.00 for deluxes anyway, I lost nothing. Shipping to AUS. is 14.00 and that's ems, Recommend to any Aussies!

    BBTS' initial price was the same as HTS for Brakeneck and Quickslinger. They didn't raise the price until they restocked months later.

    No, sorry, it's just my bad photography!!! The paint on the heads is the same, that 'silver' you see is just a reflection.
