It seems Hasbro Asia is rereleasing Transformers masterpiece toys left right and centre. Not only are they reissuing MP 09 Rodimus Prime, but it looks like they will rerelease MP 08, Grimlock, as well. There is no confirmation yet, but there is a post on Weibo
coming from Samuel 1230, a user regularly in the know of upcoming released. The post shows an image of the very same packaging of previous releases with the Takara box saying that they received an announcement of a reissue but that it needed further confirmation.
As with Rodimus, it is unknown if anyone outside Asia would stock this reissue. This could be great news to Chinese fans who do not own this toy yet (and to international fans too, if it becomes available to them). You can check out the extensive Seibertron gallery
for this wonderful Grimlock toy. While it might not scale well with the current Masterpiece line, it is still the very best Grimlock toy we have ever gotten

Really going to depend on price if I finally break down and buy one. Sure as heck wont be going near my MPs, he scales better with CHUGs. Really just want a properly scaled Grimlock 2.0.

Finally, I've been waiting for this MP for years. After missing out on the TRU exclusive and searching past all the ridiculous prices online, I can get one of my favorite MPs and add it to my collection.

I hope I can at least buy one of these guys. It would be a gift for my brother who is a huge Grimlock fan!
