What's the cheapest that Grimlock retails for in the UK?
So far the cheapest I can find is £52.99 with free delivery here
https://www.mad-4-toys.co.uk/shopbychar ... ock_figure

Thats a rather fair price, considering it includes taxes (and no shipping) and that thats around the same MSRP of previous leaders even though this line has gotten a price increase in most international markets.


Hm thought it might be good. Yeah £54.99 seems to be price of Leader class whether movie or Power of the Primes/Titans Return (the Forbidden Planet store I was in today had PotP Optimus and Rodimus Prime and Titans Sixshot for £54.99 each. They had Studio Bee and Ratchet for £22.99 each) so I might go with this online retailer for Grimmy then.

Photo of Sixshot, Ratchet & Bee. Sixshot overpriced especially since he's been spotted (by myself and others) for as low as £14.99 in B&M stores while stocks lasted.
Image

So Leader Grimlock for a couple quid less than retail price and actually sent to me for free? Sounds like a good deal.
Wish I knew the price of the Grimlock upgrade kit and which UK online retailers will have it. But yeah maybe I'll be ordering Grimlock real soon. Thanks. :)

Doesn't require any modding. Just alternate transformation. Just tried it with mine the blue panel (with the fuel tanky things which I find super annoying in regular transformation but nicely tidied in this alternate way) do fold inwards if pushed hard enough

Image

I like it but not if storing the swords on the back since obviously they'll stick out at an angle that way.

I didn't want to force the plastic and risk stressing it so I cut down the right angles on the blue plastic that were the problem. Just used an X-acto knife, took me 5 minutes. Definitely an improvement in my eyes; the backpack sticks out a little more but it really improves his silhouette from the front.

why?

Do you just read titles and not the articles?

fixing some of the quality concerns that affected the figure in the first place: loose joints, loose window attachment, loose feet, among others.

It did feel oddly satisfying the way they felt when being pushed inwards... I dunno how to explain it.

Following up on some of the "Dreads" talk from earlier, I finally got around to opening up Studio Series Crowbar. I'm quite impressed, overall. The vehicle mode shell is almost identical to TLK Berserker, but almost all of the robot mode parts are different. One huge improvement with Crowbar is that none of the vehicle panels pop off the robot mode limbs during transformation (or otherwise). It is a bit sad that the dreadlocks just kind of hang out the back of the vehicle mode like cans on strings for a "just married" couple driving away to their honeymoon. The robot feet are also pretty clearly visible in the back wheel wells in vehicle mode. I'd like to see this improved level of engineering on the mold used to make the other two Dreads down the line. Or maybe they can reshell Crowbar with a run-down VW bus alt-mode for a later wave and give us a proper "Dreadbot?"

Think I got lucky with my Berserker. It's had a lot of play and transforming and slighty painting and a lot of Toyhax stickers applied and never had any part pop off even when trying to 'force' it. :P

Now that I finally got my Grimlock, here's my thoughts:

OH.

MY.

GOD.

:shock:

This is a MASTERPIECE disguised as a mainline figure! The sculpting is perfect. The paint is freaking PREMIUM. The engineering is simple yet damn effective. It was damn expensive at 80 leaf dollars and a half. But man, I don't regret it one bit. HasTak knocked it out of the park with that one!

Image

On a side note, the "skirt-flap" on mine is pretty tight and hold itself in place perfectly.

I don't remember having seen this on the thread but here's Grimlock in his bubble. He's so big that he have to take a pretty funny pose in packajing. It's a great idea because it make for a smaller box and happier retailers.

Image

GENERATIONS OF GRIMLOCKS!

Image

Overal conclusion: GET IT NAO!
SS Grimlock is a figure that is worth not waiting for a sale. ;)^

So far, I haven't gotten any of the Studio Series figures yet, though it's looking like only the Leaders really appeal to me enough to want to get them, but not necessarily because of their depictions in the films, but because of my possibly wanting to repurpose them as Beast Wars: Uprising characters.

Voyager Optimus Prime is a quite a mixed bag: great transformation but skimps on a lot of the details in sculpt and paint. Don't let that throw you off the Voyager size class, though, because Starscream is fantastic! Seriously, even if you only kinda tolerate Starscream, this is the best version at this size we've ever gotten. Everything about the figure is terrific.

Also, I know a lot of people are down on the Deluxes of wave 1 of the Studio Series, but none of them are "bad" figures to me at all. They're not flawless, but I'm still quite happy to have them in my collection.

Those are never important when you have a plastic crack addiction :lol: on a side note how much is the dna set going to cost then? I love the look of gridlock as it is but the upgrade looks even nicer still but if it doubles the cost then I'm out...I mean I've got some beastie masterpieces to save up for

Way I'm justifying it, is I feel empty and down and I'm either gonna buy toys or I'm gonna buy a whole ton of fatty food and one of those choices is easily undone (if necessary I can resell toys, but it's a lot tougher to get rid of all the fat gained by the foods). So yep, paid my £52.99 and shall await my huge dino toy. And yes I do need to know how much the DNA upgrade will be cos it does appear to fix all the main issues I have with the factory figure (such as giving it two hands! And a spikey ball where the spikes haven't been safety-zones to hell) and I won't be able to be happy with the figure without it. And I don't have any beastie masterpieces to save up for... i suppose this IS the beastie masterpiece i'm saving up for...

£54 isn't bad since I bet they would be higher should they appear on UK shelves (I'm not holding my breath on anything bigger than the deluxes appearing as UK distribution, as we both know, is pants)

Either way this is going to be the best version of grimlock we're going to get for a while. Well best version of this character. Who knows when we'll see him again on the big screen now

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Thanks to Japanese sites covering the Shibuoka event - in this case Figsoku and AmiAmi.net - which has brought us reveals of the Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-43 Beast Wars Megatron among others (see more here), we also have some nice images of the Studio Series line releases for Decepticons Brawl and Megatron, respectively in their 2007 live-action movie incarnation, and the Revenge of the Fallen one.

Check the images out below, taken at the display area at the event, and compare them to previously seen in-package and in hand shots here - what do you think? Are you excited for the release? Let us know in the discussion in the Energon Pub!

The Megatron is really growing me. I'm not 100% sold on Brawl (Devastator XD) but.... I think like I caved on Starscream in person... something will happen with Brawl.

I still can't bring myself to buy Ratchet though. I know folks keep saying his paint is sufficient in vehicle mode, but robot mode (and especially his face) feel so... bland.

Him and Jazz are the next ones that I'm gonna get at FULL price when they hit selves. So far I got Thundercracker, Starscream, and Grimlock. ALL paid full MSRP. It's been a while since a series made me buy everything full price. I usually wait until a sale or clearance before I buy...............

I want Jazz very muchly too but not sure I should buy him at same time as Megatron or something may happen like for example open the box to find Megatron has gotten out of his packaging and ripped Jazz in half. :O

Well I stand corrected, hmm getting to my local symths is a pain but been a while since I've physically hunted for anything. I know others aren't fond of him but I like prime.

As for these new pictures...why are they trying to make me get these toys when I want all of them but can only afford a few :BOOM:

Prime certainly has flaws but I do like it (especially after I've begun customising it somewhat). Even having got a (likely an incredibly good KO going by the price) Revenge Optimus Prime (Takara repaint of the old Battle Blades Voyager figure) this week I still like SS Prime a lot too. Revenge looks immediately more accurate (especially since it's far better painted) but there are some things it does better and some that the SS figure does better. Also I find the SS figure feels more solid and less fiddly than the Revenge figure can be. I'm glad to have both though.

And yeah I've not actually seen a Smyths shop myself and still hoping one moves into the closed Toys R Us building in Cambridge but a friend of mine I talk to about toy stuff on DeviantArt (I wish he'd get a twitter or instagram set up cos i barely use DA these days) mentioned them being in there and buying some and they are both on the Smyths website too (as is the 10th Anniversary version of the 2007 Leader Prime curiously enough). Out of the actual physical shops left in UK that sell Transformers, Smyths do seem to be among the best, if not the number one. Don't know if they'll stock Studio Leaders though.



Their website has a Studio category and also £5 off when you spend £20? That sounds too good to be true.

cheeky using a Starscream stock photo where he has the buzzsaw this version doesn't have. :O

I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean offense to anyone. Just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Bayverse, Marvel UK G1, Geoff Senior art, '86 movie (more for style/soundtrack rather than Star Wars plot)
Dislikes: Bumblebee movie (lousy rehashed dumb crud), TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron
