This asia exclusive reissue includes an exclusive crown, and flame sword cover that goes over his sword!
"I've had better. "
I'm not pleased with mine. There are sooooo many problems with it. For starters one arm keeps popping off. Most of the joints are too loose. In robot mode I can only pose him standing straight up. In alt mode his legs will either sick out to the side too much or go in together too much. I can not just get them to be straight. I have plenty of masterpiece transformers and this by far is the worst one. If I bought this from a store near me I would definitely return it right now. I believe that it is because the mold has been used too much and it worn down. I would definitely not recommend this to any collector.
This MP is amazing...I am so happy I got it. Get it, worth every penny.
"Decent, but not flawless"
The individual modes are great, but the transformation itself its rather lame.
Pros: The Robot Mode and Alt Mode are individually fantastic. They have great aesthetics to G1 Grimmy. The ability to change his eye color on each mode is a nod to fans. Poseability is 85% awesome, with the flame addition to his sword looking great but causing issues (see below).
Cons: Transformation is uninspired. The most complex part of it is his feet.
The added gimmicks (tail wag/head shake, Autobot reveal insignia) are really not necessary. I'll have to modify my Autobot emblem in his chest because it only pops up about 3/4 of the way in robot mode, hiding the entire mouth on the insignia face. The added weight of the flames on his sword causes his wrist to roll over, so likely there will need to be a modification there as well.
Overall, I would rate it a 3 if each mode wasn't so damn good looking. I'm not sure it totally justifies the price but I'm glad I own it.
Just cool!! ;)
This has got to be one of the most impressive Masterpiece figures I have ever seen. Pictures and video reviews cannot capture how truly awesome this figure is in person. The size, look, and presence (for lack of a better word) all make this a must have. Everything else that comes with it is just that much of a bonus adding several options to display. If you are on the fence, just go ahead and get this. You won't regret it.
A mint box generally has no noticeable flaws. This doesn't mean it is a C10 box, but that it doesn't have any significant damage to the box. It still may have wear to the window, and a small amount of wear to the box that is noticeable upon close inspection.
A C9 box is still considered very displayable and may have a kink, ding, minor fray to an edge, etc. The box is still case fresh and unopened with factory sealed tape on both sides.
