Meh...

220$ plus possibly 50$ of shipping, and it's still going to be nearly 300$.
I dont like Grimlock enough to caugh up that much cash for him.

At least, the ones who really want him... well... will still have to sell a kidney for him.

How is it "good" news again?

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.


LOL I make no defenses for Classics Grimlock--not exactly a pretty sight, even for Grimlock. :lol:

Actually, I was thinking more along the lines of FoC Grimlock. He's a great figure, despite the hollow dino belly. Just imagine the awesomeness of him after being bumped up to an MP fig, with a much larger budget and better engineering. 8)

It's a reference tied to this rumor. Chances are, you will see the the Hasbro version be reissued in Hasbro Asia packaging. Or that it was a Takara Tomy re-release that is coinciding with a Hasbro Asia release.

So like they said, take it as a rumor. ;)

If indeed this is the Hasbro International release, well that would be expensive alright. If its MP-08, kind of justifiable, but then again for me it would be good for those who missed the boat ('cause I already own the "meido saurus" version already).
Buy Official Hb/TakaraTitancityformers at retail price or else the 3rd party makers win!

"Shelfwarming"
Btw, its been nearly a year now and TR Soundwave and Blaster aren't moving in the shelve of TRU, is that shelfwarming or what?

I really find it hard to believe they would charge $220 for a re-release of this mold, $100 maybe, but $220 would only come from takara... now i know this is being released in another part of the world and import fees and shipping will drive the price up some... but not to any $220 price mark.... $100 for grimmy, $30 -40 shipping, call it a day

What's the point of re-releasing something for the same price it goes for aftermarket? Maybe they should do another run of MP-11 and charge $250 for it..

Not sure where you guys are seeing aftermarket prices of $220......He's going for $300-$600 on Ebay!!!! And that's before shipping costs....

220 would be way more affordable than anywhere else you'd be able to find him right now.

BTW Would this Hasbro-Asia version have the sharp teeth or rounded ?

Yes, most of the time. A 13 USD (approx. 39 MYR) deluxe TF in the USA would cost about 59.90 MYR here (approx. 20 USD). A Takara version would cost almost double that amount.

The only consolation we have here is that shipping costs less to import stuff here from Japanese online stores, than it would cost for someone to import to the US.

In theory, this should reset the prices to $220. Of course there are shipping costs etc to consider, but if i had an MP Grimlock on eBay, I'd reconsider the pricing to be reflect this announcement once it is released. On the other hand, you could always hold onto it and wait for the rush to subside then jack the price back up. If you've got the dosh, buy it is my suggestion.

I absolutely love my MP Grimlock, but I am happier knowing I bought it at a reasonable price from Toys R Us. The price on this toy is just beyond retarded. There's nothing about this toy that justifies $220.00.

Almost the same in Europe then. As my folks would say: "Still wet even when not peed on". :lol:

$220?

That is terrible news. The price is on par or higher than the scalping price on eBay.
So shouldn't the price be much lower? Hasbro-Asia pricing the item at that much is border-line criminal and shady.

Considering the warm and humid climate here, that saying is disturbingly fitting! :lol:
