Yeah, it's nice to see the gun pictured. I think the eye-changing gimmick is pretty cool. Lets you choose if you want a red eyed or a blue eyed Grimmy. And he can choose to go factionless too, pretty nifty.

Looks better and better all the time.

Hmm, could you imagine having all the Dinobots in Masterpiece form! What a shelf that would be.

I totally agree. The thought of the Dinos in MP form makes me :grin:

The rest of the crew needs an update either in the Classicverse line or in the MP line. They could do a G1 version and then do a G2 repaint. I'm sure a lot of people would jump on both versions.

That´s a must-have for me! Time to fork out some serious money on the MP seekers, MP-4 Convoy and this bad boy :shock:

His back looks a bit messy in alt mode. But still very cool overall. He'll be joining my MP collection :D

Usually the Masterpieces try to make the figure look more show-accurate, and yet this time Grimlock looks more toy-accurate. Why is that?

This has got to be one of the best Transformers ever made. It looks simply fantastic! :grin:

Hasn't Takara already confirmed that a G2 Blue repaint of MP Grimlock is planned?

I believe they have.

IMO, maybe the best, most complete Transformer ever. Agree with other posts, the images just keep getting better.

I think if you go back and look at the G1 toy gallery, you'll find that MP Grimlock is very show accurate. Asides from Prime, probably the most if all MPs.

Suhweet!!! I'm going to guess that his eyes were blue in both modes in the G1 cartoon. I think i'm right. :-?

Yes, he is, but he's still a little more toy-accurate that show-accurate. If he were going for the pure show-accurate angle, his transluscent yellow would be solid yellow, he wouldn't have as many details, and he wouldn't have the option of switching his eye color to red.

But don't get me wrong, this Grimlock looks fantastic. I'm just an observant viewer.
