Transformers Masterpiece Grimlock

In the transformers series another set of toys I always wanted is the Dinobots. Out of the five Dinobots, Grimlock the T-Rex is one of the coolest. I’ve played with the Generation 1 Grimlock toy back in my earlier years but never managed to own one. Seeing Takara Tomy is re-relasing the the MP-8 Masterpiece Grimlock, I ordered it together with the MP-4 Masterpiece Optimus Prime. Weight in at 1.6kg for the entire package, Grimlock is much lighter than Optimus Prime and cost a lot less in shipping.

Transformers Masterpiece Optimus Prime

I have always wanted an Transformers Optimus Prime toys ever since I watched the Transformers animated series when I was little. However, I never got my hand on one, until now. When I say Takara Tomy’s Masterpiece MP-4 Optimus Prime is being re-released complete with the trailer, I was excited. Placed the order on and just arrived from Japan recently. Yes this is the Japanese version, a lot of die-cast metal parts are used in this and way better than any version released in the North America in terms of built quality. The package is really heavy, nearly 4kg, the shipping itself from Japan was a whopping ¥6,800.
