It will be identical to previous releases, with no changes or extra added.
Price will be 680MYR, which is roughly $220.00

Rated X wrote:$220.00 ??? What kind of crack are they smoking at Hasbro Asia ???
I paid about $70.00 back here in the USA at my local TRU a couple years back. And it came with a crown, sword, and gun. Granted mine didnt come with the Computron brain thing or the stupid waiters apron and tray, but $150.00 more for a re-release of the Hasbro version ??? This is not the Takara version...

On the other hand, I just don't like the obsolete T-Rex proportions, although I FULLY UNDERSTAND that that's the point of the MP line; to recreate a perfected version of the G1 toy while staying as close to the original designs as possible. Just a personal peeve of mine.
I agree with everyone else that 220 is pretty damn steep, but seeing as everything else has also become more expensive....

His "realistic" Classic mode made him look.....well more like a Tarzan which I don't dig........maybe a more Fred Flinstone look that we all love.
