That's about 30 quid isn't it? Even with shipping that should work out cheaper than waiting for a store over here to pick it up (assuming Ebay sellers don't mark it up to much).

Well, assuming my TRU ever gets any in, I will be purchasing this guy. I've been looking at him for a while, but just could not see paying that much on eBay or any hobby store. I can definitely see the repackage of King Grimlock this fall.

'Bout 40 at current exchange rate. Still likely to be a good deal.

And................. it is gone. Seems like TRU removed it from their website as it was out of stock before.

Ugh. Just bought MP-Grimlock last month full price.

Are there no rumors anywhere else that Hasbro was going to release him? Because I was honestly expecting Thundercracker this year to make up the full Seekers set.

IIRC he was formally announced a few months ago at the same toy fare where we first saw pics of the new wave of Classics he's being bunged in with.

I only seem to remember Voyager Seaspray from the Toy Fair... dumb brain

I am rather glad I picked up the Takara/TOMY MP though. Hasbro may release a good/durable toy, but I'm sure it would suffer the same fate as any high quality item they re-release (e.g. The glossy Takara finish on MP Skywarp VS the matte finish on Hasbro's).

I'm searching, but not finding, right now; Is there a place in the forums with a list of all the rumored/confirmed/upcoming toys? I know the toy checklists cover some announced items, JW if there is a just plain ol' list of stuff I could look forward to and should keep an eye out for.

Unrelated, my wallet is LOVING this slight lull in the Transformers toy lines. I can slowly catch up with all the toys I really want, and I got my first car.

Looks like he comes with the "Dinobot Crown of Leadership" but no apron.

So is there any way I can pre-order this now on there site ? Cuz I dont luck getting some of the more sought after exclusives from my local tru. I am still looking for animated arcee. I know this will be hard to get, so if I could order it now, I would be very happy. If not, I will just have to go and searc around the time botcon is going on.
