Transformers Asia gives us an official look at the upcoming throne for MP-08X Grimlock. According to the website, this throne comes free with MP-08X at selected Asian retailers. However, Takara Tomy is selling this separate to most retailers which increased the price of the base figure. We also get a nice view of the box the throne comes in.

And I'm a little confused, are we going to be able to Buy this stand alone, or do we need to get another MP Grimmy?

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.

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

Youtube reviewer and Seibertron.com member Kool Kollectibles just dropped by to share with everyone a video review of the Takara Masterpiece MP-8X King Grimlock with Throne. This version of Masterpiece Grimlock is a reissue of the MP8X King Grimlock that was originally released in 2009 which has a color scheme base on his appearance in the G1 Marvel Comic.

I think Hasbro's hit an all new low point for this throne.

This release has nothing to do with Hasbro. It's a Takara release.

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.  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!
