Toy Hobby Market Exclusive MP8X King Grimlock (Comic Edition)!!!

{mosimage}Fans let down by TakaraTomy's Masterpiece MP8 Grimlock release (featuring decidedly cartoon based accessories) can breath a sigh of relief as TakaraTomy is releasing a MP8X King Grimlock!  This figure features the Marvel G1 Comic inspired crown (originally shown when MP8 Grimlock was first revealed) & new comic inspired packaging!  Among the other changes, are a more comic based color scheme – switching the black for dark blue, the gray for silver, the clear sword for clear orange sword, and new shades of the various chrome areas!  This figure does not come with the accessories based on the G1 cartoon (serving gear & brain transfer device) but retains his weapons (blaster & sword).  This figure is a Toy Hobby Market exclusive (like Henkei Skywarp & Gentei Dirge before him) and will be available to order for Japanese residents from August 1st to September 1st with shipping in the later portion of December 2009.
