to everyone who wants to get this thing by itself, check ebay and chimung. when the asia reissue came out with that flame attachment and coin/crown thing i was able to buy the pair off ebay for 25 bucks shipped. and later chimung had it listed for a similar price.

Hey all, here's my full review of the new 2nd production run of MP-8X King Grimlock where I compare it against my original MP-8 (I never got the original MP-8X). I also give a close look at the garbage that is the throne and also a look at the elbow assembly issue that had affected mine and a few others.

http://youtu.be/FYsGYNTOUHg

Hope you can check it out, subscribe, like, and comment with your thoughts on the figure too :)

Did you watch the video? The throne is a Hasbro piece, and it shows. Just flimsy plastic.

He showed the Hasbro logo on the back of the throne box. Image What he didn't show, and should have, is Grimlock actually sitting on the throne.

lol yeah probably. But I was so pissed off about that throne, the less I saw of it the better. Once I get the replacement figure, I'll definitely take a pic of it on the throne. I dont want to mess around too much with the defected figure since I'll need to send it back.

sorry to heat about the miss assembly in the arm. all i know is, if youve been waiting as long as i have for this figure, i would NOT want to send it back as soon as i finally got one! that sucks, but BBTS has exceptional customer service.

i wasnt actually aware of the top to bottom silver paint on him, so thats a bonus! the main reason for me wanting him was the richness of the gold chrome, and the amber blade on the sword. i should have mine late this week or the next... cant wait!

Hahaha nonono. I'm at work and doing a million things at once.

Hmmm... Perhaps this is a hasbro Asia reissue much like the starscream and now the sideswipes? Cause these reissues aren't hitting any of the Japanese retailers.

Yes, I believe this is a Hasbro Asia exclusive, and apparently only in Taiwan!?!? That's why Japanese sellers and Hong Kong sellers are not getting it. Not sure how places like BBTS, TFSource, and Toy Dojo are getting it, but I assume the have contacts/suppliers for Hasbro Asia.

Either way, I love the figure, but at this price point, I need the figure to be perfect, not defective with an assembly error in the arm/leg!

I hope you get a replacement without hassle. That's a very much in-demand figure, not sure how much they have in stock, and how many of the pieces are defective. Others are probably having the same problem and want a replacement. And just to be nit-picky, you could have used the MP-08 to sit in the throne to demonstrate. Image

About BBTS though, has anyone ever had to deal with them about a replacement? I have been assured that they are great, but they have not responded to my email with the details on the manufacturing error, and it's been about 3 days now!

I would email them again. They usually respond to me in 24 hours. I had a package that suppose to have delivered to me on 12/23/2013 last year but never came.... It took about a month to go through all the investigations with UPS, but I was fully refunded. Although nothing in there was for anyone else but myself but if it were presents for others..... it would've sucked everything took so long.

Instead of exchanging your whole figure maybe you can see if BBTS has an extra part of what you need? they can ship it to you and you can replace it, I'm sure that would be a lot faster.

ive dealt with their customer service a couple times now and found them to be quite helpful.

first was an MP tigertrack with a broken hand (they replaced the figure). the second time was a package that was brutally damaged, and had close to 80 bucks in customs on top of that (no toys actually damaged, and they gave me a $80 credit).

all they need is details, and pictures. theyre pretty forthcoming after that. and it was always 24 hours response for me, so i agree that you should email them again.

Yeah, they just emailed me and asked if it was OK if they sent me a replacement arm that I could swap out. They said they asked me this because I am in Australia, so I assume the cost of shipping a new figure etc isn't something they'd want to do if a replacement arm could be sent.

I believe that reasoning behind the black and white bio card is to differentiate this as a 2nd run release vs. the original MP 08X 1st edition.

I have a 1st edition MP 08X and the card is colored.

Welcome to the forums!

Do you know if the first edition of MP 08X has a green tint on the clear plastic parts like the second one has?
