You dun goofed on buying the wrong MP Grimlock. If you bought the American version you get a nice shiny crown!
Also even if it's just the Japanese version it STILL is the best MP out there.
I only have Prime and Starscream from First Edition. I might snag me a Cliffjumper when TRU gets them. The Optimus Prime is really just so awesome. One of the best Prime molds I've seen.
Definitely get the Cliffjumper FE, the RiD mold is subpar, almost as bad as Bulkhead's.
I wanted the Hasbro Grimlock, but I got a much better price on the TT version, under $200 with shipping. You're right though, King Grimlock > waiter, but the tray of drinks is kinda nice... oh and I got an apron and a bow tie too.
At least it also came with the smart helmet, at least I think that's what that thing is.
