The Hobbybase Facebook page has posted a couple of images of Takara Tomy's newly released Transformers Masterpiece MP-08 Grimlock reissue. This version comes with a special cover for his sword that adds flames, crown, and special collectors' coin. Contrary to earlier information it appears the coin and crown are two separate pieces. Previous reports indicated the coin itself would transform into a crown, that does not appear to be the case. Check out the images mirrored below:

this reminds me of that episode of the Simpsons when they added a hat to Malibu Stacy and everybody freaked out and wanted it. don't get me wrong, Hastak has a way of getting us to buy the same great toy again and again. I want that freaking sword, guess I'll be displaying him in both robot and Dino mode

I get what they are going for but it really doesn't look right. You have this shiny chromed out robot with a cartoon looking flame sword. Ehhh

The sword is nice, don't care about the crown.

So the coin doesn't transform into the crown?
I thought that's what they originally advertized.

To paraphrase Milhouse: "Remember pogs? They're back... in collector coin form."

Does anyone actually collect these coins?

I think the coins are cool as a FREE add-in. But they're not cool enough to pay $15 for on eBay or order from a site that's gonna charge you $25+ more for the figure.

I wonder if the flame can be attached to the mouth in dino mode.

So... Has anyone confirmed what accessories this release comes with? Does it come with all the original MP-08 accessories (waiter, brain transfer device, etc.) + flame sword + crown, or is it just the gun, sword, flame, crown? All website listings I've seen are annoyingly ambiguous about this. But now that it's been released, maybe someone can answer that?

I just bought the accessories on ebay by themselves, since I already have the first run MP-08. Here's a link for those interested: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574891718&toolid=10001&campid=5336631220&customid=transformers&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2F400650950435
