BigBadToyStore.com- Yes indeed, site sponsor, online store BBTS Has listed the newest Masterpiece figure for pre-order...MASTERPIECE GRIMLOCK. The news of his possible release, while rumored over a year back, just resurfaced recently, and now this, a pre-order for the toy which would confirm the earlier story

The Dinobot commander looks to be getting the ultimate toy creation joining the likes of Optimus Prime, Megatron, and Starscream before him.

You can pre-order him from BBTS by clicking here! The price is $149.99,and estimated to arrive in March.

After years of rumors, Takara has finally announced the Masterpiece Grimlock figure! Takara has increased the retail pricing on this item to 13,000 yen, so we would expect this figure to be slightly larger and bulkier than previous Masterpiece figures, which were in the 10,000 yen MSRP range. More details to be listed as they are released.



No actual toy images have surfaces yet, but it won't be long now, if this toy is due out in March 2009!

I hope he isn't as back-heavy as that silhouette makes him look...

"Me Grimlock fall over!"

Unlikely, given that's just G1 Grimlock's box art silouetted.

I wonder why there's never been a leaked prototype photo of this figure.

I'm still not entirely convinced that he's really coming out soon.

I have been waiting for this all my life lol. I really want to see some images of him! Will he get the awesomeness of prime or the mediocrity of Megs? At $150.00 I hope he is taller than prime! :grin:

This sounds neat and all...I just don't know if I need a masterpiece version of Grimlock. Is that a sacrilege? :-(

Now go to the corner and think about what you've done.

*sigh* yet another Masterpiece that I can't afford and won't be getting.

Curse you Takara!!!!! *shakes fist angrily at sky*

They are really pushing the price limit on a toy I only have minimal interest in.

I hope that, in a few years, they'll release him in G1 colours (as opposed to the more realistic colours of the Japanese release) as a store exclusive. :P

I see everybody jumping into the bandwagon. Don't you guys want to at least see a photo of the product before buying it?

At BBTS you don't pay until it arrives and ships. So it's more like we're saving a place in line.

So if money gets tighter, or pics come out and I hate 'em, I just cancel my pre-order.... :grin: 8)

Joking aside, I do wonder if they'll go the full G1-route and give him a completely mechanical dino mode, or if they'll try and give him an organic looking form.

Damn, I mean I want to buy that Afro-Megs, now this, damn.
I really need to win the lottery.

I'm not gonna preorder it just yet, though I'm fairly certain I will in a month or so. Grimlock was one of the MPs I really wanted to see, so I'm happy he's getting the treatment. Now if they'd just follow him up with Shockwave, I'd be in heaven.

I think you might have to change your name to 'TFBuyer Sometimes'.

It will be nice when some pictures are leaked and it is indeed the best Grimlock possible! 8)
