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.

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.


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

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD 2001 Dreadwind & Smokejumper
3) RiD 2001 Destructicons Bludgeon & Scourge
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

If anyone has spare RiD Mini-Con armor pieces for Glacius and Beastbox, hit me up!

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :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:

Any update on this rerelease? As expensive as this is, it's still cheaper than the current eBay prices. I'm late to the Masterpiece party and me need Grimlock!
