If you own any of the Thrilling 30 Generations, you could set him over on an IDW shelf with them separate from the WFC/FOC figures. ;)

No, actually I can't because I don't read the comics. The Thrilling 30 line is just more Generations/Classics/whatever to me and just because Hasbro and IDW decided to repurpose an existing mold from a different continuity (sorry, but this IS an FoC mold, period) doesn't mean that I have to ;).
Well, enjoy having two Thundercrackers. :P

Thanks to Bic Camera we have a couple of larger images of the recently revealed Takara Tomy Fire Blast Grimlock, a redeco of the FOC Voyager Grimlock mold. The figure is priced at 4780 Yen (around $46.00) and scheduled to release on March 29th. Images mirrored below.

I dont see a $60.00 Takara repaint. I see a lame $20.00 repaint on par with sharkticon megatron. Just not homaging an important enough character to be worthy of takara prices. But for 20 I would pop on it just for fun.

Both figures look really nice. The paint decos are sharp. I wonder if Takara thickened the plastic on Grimlock so his whole head doesn't light up?

I don't see much difference between this FOC Thundercracker and the one we got in the Generations line. The paint job is a little better with the silver on the guns. Other than that, what is different?

The Grimlock is a pass for me. Not much more than a red Grimlock to me. If you are into repaints then it would be pretty cool. I am sometimes, but not for the price these will command.

I know. This isn't an e-HOBBY toy. :???:

Unless you mean he's not with Takara at all anymore, which I wouldn't know either way.

He did write the Japanese Generations bios, though, which is why I assumed this toy's bio would be written by him. If not, then I still look forward to seeing the bio even if someone else wrote it. 8)

A few subtle differences. Like, the Takara one has a metallic paint finish, richer paint colors, :CON: logos on the jet mode fin, black knees instead of gray, different paint apps on the guns, etc.

I'd get the Grimmy for my kid, he likes red Grimlocks, but again, that isn't an import buy.

Now that I actually look at the source pages, it says that is a form Grimlock powered up into after absorbing the thermal energy of lava. 8)

It also says which stores they are exclusive to:

Fireblast Grimlock - Bic Camera and Kojima stores

Thundercracker - Yodobashi Camera, Yamada Denki, and Best Denki stores

So does anyone know (or have a good idea) if BBTS/TFsource or others will offer these guys? Since I must have all things WFC/FOC, I will be getting these. The Takara TC looks great. The new Grimy is interesting. So he's a reference to an Animated Grimlock?
