I'm starting to think that that throne is just a throw in item that Hasbro Asia does like those coins! and it's the online retailers that is charging the $20 on top not realizing it's thattttt cheap..

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?


Thank you!

The 1st run MP 08X has clear gray plastic vs the clear green one found in the Hasbro re release. I attached a photo of mine. Sorry for the bad lighting, the photo is from when I first got him years ago. I was so excited to have received him that I literally ran to my room and begged my wife to keep the kids away just so I could enjoy the moment, lol.

That could actually be the case. I mean look at the last ones like this, the normal Grimlock flame sword and coin thing, that came for free with the figure, but because it was in it's own separate packaging they ended up on ebay.

Would be curious to see these side by side. My eyes can't make out a difference between the video on page two and the pictures here since the lighting is so different.

Do you have the original Hasbro or Takara MP8 and the new TRU reissue this year? It is the same deal, New TRU reissue has the greenish clear plastic.

Hi everyone, question/observation regarding King Grimlock 2nd run.

Did the re release come with the comic? I own the 1st run of Takara Tomy MP 08X. The accessories in box include;
1) Crown.
2) Gun.
3) Sword.
4) Black and white bio card (*corrected*)
5) Black and white comic book (*corrected*)

Also, the 1st run of MP 08X does have full chrome paint job in the alt/T Rex mode from shoulder ball to arm.

Thanks!

Uh, no, are you sure you have an MP-8X card? I've watched many reviews of the original release from 2010, and the instruction manual and collector card are all black and white, just like the re-issue.

I think you must be looking at an MP-8 card, which is coloured.

You are 100% correct. I just got my MP 08X to confirm this and took a photo. However, the files are too large for me to upload, so I will be emailing to the admins for them to post.

So, I was wrong. My 1st run MP 08X comes with a black and white comic and bio card. I rarely get to spend any time with my collection, sorry for posting the wrong information.

However, the T Rex shouldesr (ball section) are in fact in the same blueish chrome as the arms.

Yeah, I knew as soon as I saw the unpainted ball joint on the little arms, I knew they had cut costs on that one! It's a shame they just couldnt do it exactly the same as the original release.

Those pics are mistransformed, the top of the T.Rex head clicks nice and flush into the back of the bot-mode.

Thanks for the critique/observation.

He already comes in robot mode, the T Rex head in misalignment was just from me taking him out of his packaging yesterday.

The pics of dino mode are over 2 yrs old. I bought him about 3 years ago, I've only transformed him twice.

i was one of the suckers who bought MP8X with the throne, and heard mention of filling the empty plastic with something to solidify it. anyone have suggestions as to what that something could be? :grin:

I bought mine back then too and haven't done anything with him since, except pose him differently on my shelf.

This is my absolute favorite MP. The mold was a breath of fresh air and the colors pop so well. Also, it is my favorite MP box. I don't get to enjoy him as much as 2 out of my 4 kids are under the age of 5 and have no problem crossing boundaries...

Out of all of my MP's, I currently only have Smokescreen out. He stands guard of my watches, lol.

Yeah, the mold is great, I'm still baffled by all the criticism it got when it came out. It's perfect, well save for the stupid light up gimmick and it being so small.

The King Grimlock version is pretty cool, I appreciate the effort they put into it to make it look like the Marvel comic version, it may not interest me or make it desirable to me, but it's pretty cool that they made it.

My biggest complaint is his size but that's also the my main gripe with the MP line prior to the release of MP 10...

Yeah, the old MP line was all over the place with sizes, since they were all designed to be single pieces and not as a cohesive line, only MEgatron was designed to scale with another MP figure, that case being Prime.

Sadly, Grimlock's even too small for the current MP line too.

i hate to bring this up since the throne turned out to be such a POS, but ive found it for sale by itself. if you really want it, and feel like filling it as other have suggested, it could still be worthwhile.
