    So I saw a listing for a V-class Reximus Prime MP08 and am unable to find much info on it so I thought I'd ask here. Is this a down scaled version of MP08? I'm wanting to replace the stomach-less FOC Grimlock on my CHUG display and if this is Voyager sized it will be perfect.

    I think it might be, but I'm not certain.

    I'm guessing it the upscale KO of the Warbotron grimlock that you are talking about. If so, I thinks it's a small voyager size.

    Yes I can confirm this since I have both of them. The upsized version in question is indeed right around Voyager scale but it's very simplistic, originally being a Legends sized design and obviously not nearly as complex as MP8. That said it's a pretty cool toy in its own right. I enjoy it.

    Agree with this. I''m not a CHUG collector, but if I were I'd use MP-8 as my Grimlock. (No idea how I'd get the others, but MP-8 works great if you use a biggish voyager Optimus and Megatron.)

    I use MP08 as my CHUG Grimlock while the oversized one is in my MP Dinobot display. Grimlock needs to tower over most other bots for me.

    Exactly this. When I saw that Grinder was smaller it was an easy pass

    I was disappointed when I saw Grinder's size, especially in bot mode. At least that saved me $200.

    No, we're crazy. Grinder is more blah blah than Reximus lol. Scale and colors be damned I say. The king towers over his crew

    In my own headcanon, the dinobots wouldnt be too concerned in being color-coordinated.
