Seibertron.com member Real Devastator has alerted us to a special site update from Takara-Tomy. In the Masterpiece section they have posted images of the upcoming MP-08x King Grimlock. However, they also have uploaded an excerpt of the May 1986 Transformers issue #28 Marvel comic which features Grimlock in his "royal" role.

We have mirrored these images for your convenience.

It's curious that I had submitted this news about 1.5-2 weeks ago about this update on the TakaraTomy Transformers site and no one cared.

I can't be precise about when I submitted this news, I even forgot about it until I saw this now. I didn't post it on the forum, I used the link you guys have on the site on the last option of the news menu above. So, someone must have received that at the time. It must have been at least 1 week.

About the comic I do remember pretty well it had at least 1 page already in that button they placed there. If it had the 12 pages then I didn't notice there were 12, I just saw 1 page of it at the time.

I thought that since you have that link on the news menu that the "common" users like me that aren't part of the staff should use it instead of creating new threads on the forum...

I added capellamusic to the creds. He did submit this, I clearly remember it, but I only remember it being images we had basically already seen, so that is why I chose not to post it. The others may have felt similarly.

Regardless, thanks to you both for helping us out.

After reading comic page: "ME, Grimlock, pretty princess! Now that me have crown, Bumblebee and Blaster need to help Grimlock pick out pretty dress for tea party."

This might be worth getting for the box alone; i don't know why but there's something really classy about it.

I am so pissed that they will issue this better looking version. I spend 125 euros getting the "first" MP-08 Grimlock and this new X-edition is looking better.

Why don't they do this right frist time around? Same goes with some of the universe figures...

This is really annoying me. I any one else having this same "problem"

He is just too expensive. I already have the normal MP-8 version and that is good enough for me.

Thank you, I wrote not because of not being on the credits (but although it's nice I don't mind about it too much), but because I was feeling ignored since I had submitted those news before, no one posted them and then 2 weeks later someone else posts the news and was left thinking it was not worth it to spend the time if no one cared when I did it.

Maybe you didn't see the comic at the time, but I am 100% sure it was there, at least the 1st page was because I remember it pretty well, although I thought it was only 1 page at the time. What I think is that when I submitted the news I didn't mention anything about the comic and just said that they updated the site with the new masterpiece MP-8x King Grimlock plus the link. So, maybe you didn't notice the comic at that time, but I assure you it was there since then.
