Seems like the Hasbro version of Transformers Masterpiece Grimlock has surfaced and is now available in the Chinese toy market, as multiple Transformers collectors overseas have gotten their hands on this leader of the Dinobots. Actoys forum member 红银蓝 has posted images of Grimlock, an interesting point is that Hasbro's Masterpiece Grimlock has sharp teeth and claws.

The Hasbro version comes with the crown? That's gonna cause some ruffled feathers among people who bought the Takara version...

Screw the crown, I want the tray and apron, for more iconic.

This looks excellent, I hope it will be available over here.

Any chance of the following:

- US Retail Date?
- Retail Price?
- Stores carrying the item?

Will this be coming out before July? If so, my birthday's coming up, and he'd make a great Autobot counterpart for my Masterpiece Skywarp. :grin: :BOT: :APPLAUSE: Can't wait for it to come out in retail! :APPLAUSE:

I hope it comes to Minnesota. I am really glad that I passed on the Takara version just as long as I can get my hands on this.

Looks pretty good. I'd like to know US retail info as well. But I would also like to know if this version has the diecast content that the Takara version has. The heft is one of the deciding factors for me.

Really? I didn't realize it would be that big of a deal. Never really considered the inclusion or omission of the crown a factor in my buying decision for this one.

I already have both TT versions, and the paint apps are just different enough for me to pick the Hasbro version up, as well. In fact, the Hasbro version looks to be the best out of the 3 if these photos are any indication of how production will turn out :APPLAUSE:

I don't know about the first 2 Qs, but this is supposed to be a TRU exclusive. That was announced in February of this year.

I am really liking this figure. For $69.99 (Canadian) it's pretty expensive, but from what I can tell, it'll definitely be worth it.

I'm sure it's a dumb question, but I really wonder how these supposed US exclusives ALWAYS end up in the Chinese market months before the American release. Same thing happened with the Hasbro Toy Shop Exclusives a few years ago.

As for the figure, I'll definitely purchase it on sight. TRU tends to be really good with getting their exclusives (as opposed to Walmart and Target).

Oh so glad I waited. Looks to have the best of both the previous versions (crown and no "comics" blue) with rather spiffing paint, and for a cheaper price tag. Plus as a TRU exclusive it's got a fair chance of making it to UK retail (we lucked out with Skywarp getting picked up by Argos when Walmart didn't see fit to put it out on the shelves of their Asda chain over here, no such luck with the Walmart Universe ultras as yet).

Sold.

That looks sweet. I have the TT version, and I will buy this one as well.

A figure for the ages. Definitely have to pick it up if I see it. I'm glad Hasbro provides an option for those who don't tend to deal with buying figures from overseas.

Agreed, Blurrz. This almost makes me confident that if there is indeed an MP Rodimus this year, I might be okay waiting for a domestic release. Maybe.

There's not really a lot of diecast in the Takara one, it's just his dino toes, codpiece, shoulder joints, and two internal chest frame parts. I guess that's still more than Megatron and the Seekers. But so far the diecast content for the domestic MPs has been the same, there's no reason to believe Grimlock will be different. From the looks of these images, I don't think you have worry.

i'm definitely goin to try and get my grubby lil paws on this one. Wanted the previous release but it was too expensive. So much so that I have a collection tub for small change on my desk at work with a picture of this toy on it...

One interesting thing bout this masterpiece is that it is perhaps the closest to the original toy compared to the other 3 masterpieces (OP, Megatron and Starscream) - perhaps it's due to the original cartoon model not being so far away from the toy as the others were.

This looks awesome but I already have the Takara version and don't see enough different to have two.

The crown... always just looked dumb to me. It'd be in the box if the Takara version I got came with it. *Shrugs*

Stupid question time: The crown does come off, right?

Thank you Hasbro !!!

All of us in the USA appreciate every time you go against the grain and bring out releases for everyone to enjoy. Hoping for an Mp Thundercracker from Wal-Mart in the future. :D
