QFT


Am I the only one that things all these after market add-ons are getting out of hand? Sure some of them are pretty cool - but seriously, doesn't every thing need an expensive add-on/accessory kit? :?

Not something I need. Then again I don't have MP Grimmy anyways

wonder what seiberton thinks about this? (mentioned he would have preferred a crown to the waiter stuff in his review)

At least the crown looks like the original prototype image...

The mug and Thrust are pointless though.

I thought MP Grimlock already came with a Marvel comics crown? :?

Nope, replaced with an apron

Well the crown is cool, but the other stuff is pointless...why not just offer the crown on its own for a cheaper price?

I agree the add-ons are getting carried away....

I don't have a problem with add on kits. I'm not going to get this one, but I"m sure some people are happy that it's being made. If you don't want it, don't buy it. Don't see why it should bother people that it's being made.

What's the mug from any way? The crown is well known, and the Thrust is obvious from the season 2 opening credits...

Shocker: someone made the crown. It'd be nice to have but I agree with others on this overall. While the mini-Thrusts is creative, it's a weird and worthless as is that mug.

iGear is close to jumping the shark with this one.

I thought they got that autoroller shipping, but I could be wrong....

Seriously, who didn't see this comming? I'm talking about the crown of course. I actually prefer the comedy of the apron and drinks and I'm glad Grimlock came with the accessories it came with, and I'm happy with it. I don't want the crown. Still it's good for those who want it.

About the mug I have no idea where it came from... But I find it even more 'stupid' than the apron :P . As for the mini Thrust it will be cool if it transforms and looks accurate, but we already have the WST one and the Kings Toys one, although the second maybe doesn't fit in Grimlock's mouth.

I want the crown. I'd rather not pay $15 dollars plus shipping to get it, but that's life. I'm actually fond of the mug, but could care less about the miniThrust, though it is creative.

Dont have the cash to get Grimlock so the add ons are a moot point for me. I like add ons but only when they make sence and fit with the figure. I like the crown and the thrust but you can only use one at a time so thats a waste. Whats the mug from?

I know Grimlock is quite big, but he's not big enough to catch a plane in his mighty maw. What's that about?

I find it odd that the Masterpiece prototypes show them with an accessory that isn't released with the figure, then another company releases said item. I wonder if it's a subsidiary of Has/Tak and not an independant company after all. I'm refering to Starscream's coronation set (he has holes for the shoulder things) as well as Grimlock's crown.

My guess is that when collectors and completists have finished purchasing MP Grimlock and MP Starscream in a couple years - Takara will turn around and release a second version with the crowns. Kind of like what they did with MP-04. Of course the downside of waiting is that they'll lose some folks who purchase these products instead.
