    I just wanted to see what everyone thought on what little we saw of Rodimus. I personally liked the voice acting as well as the fighting ability. he looked like he could handle his own(with the exception of slow timing when OS threw comsmic rust). He fought well against Spittor and one thing I really liked was how he called himself Rodimus when calling for back up. usually characters say their full name when they are introduced but he just said Rodimus which gave you a sense the EG were very familiar with him and that he commanded a certain amount of respect. just something small I liked. Overall I like him and hope he is not scrap metal

    When I saw him kick away Spittor's tentacle things, I was like; "Kick... ass."

    I hope he got medical attention in time.

    First thought: "Man, he's badass."

    Second thought: "...Was that it?"

    I sincerely hope so. Also if you read the Animated comics, there is a cure for Cosmic rust.

    I liked his voice, and loved watching him fight...for that short time he was allowed to be bad ass. He definitely left a good impression. I'm hoping we'll see him again in the future. 8]

    Haven't seen enough of him to judge his personality,
    but I do like his fighting style.

    I was half-expecting him to allow Spittor to eat him only for Roddimus to blow him up from the inside, but impaling the tentecles with arrows, rendering the 'Con helpless was just as good.

    He's persistent and has guts, he did try to stand up to five powerful decepticons.

    "Autobots transform, and fall back!" Yep, that's the Hot Rod we all know.

    Hmm, I wonder if he'll get to be the 'Chosen One' in Animated. Though I don't see how.

    My first thought on Rodimus was, "Completely badass packed for a toy!" His voice, his skills, and his awsome wielding of his bow and arrows. I loved the way how he pinned down Spittor's tongue. Eat that ya frog face! XD

    My second thought, "Disappointing cliffhanger..." He manages to own a couple of the D-cons, and then he gets picked off by cosmic rust with his fate becoming unknown after that! No fair! I wanted to see more Roddy! >.<

    Yes Sir! Funny, but I didn't feel any emotion at all when the Cosmic Rust got him. Though I would have laughed if he had crumbled to dust. :lol

    From what little we've seen of him I like him. He fights well and he commands his troops well. According to the Animated Comics there is a cure for Cosmic Rust... so I'm sure he survived. Derrick Wyatt also mentioned on his Twitter that Rodimus will be back later in the season.

    Just because I feel liking being a oversensitive douche, I want to say "No Rodimus did not Kill Optimus." He was killed by megatron. What would have happened if Roddy hadn't interfered? Optimus, being Optimus, would have allowed Megs to crawl all the way to that blaster, and Megs woul dhave shot him straight through. Being still majorly functional, Megs would have ordered the deaths of the, now thoroughly shocked Autobots, and returned his men to Cybertreon to take out what remained on the two moonbases.

    Also, to keep to the topic, I thought Roddy and his team actually did pretty well, and Roddy seems so far to be a pretty competent leader, with parts of the original, and parts of the UT Roddy put in. I'm glad that he's (hopefully with his team) going to come back.

    He was nifty, from what little we saw of him. Even though Judd's voice has aged (duh) it's still cool to hear him as Roddy again.

    I have zero love for G1 Hot Rod/Rodimus, but already I want to see more of Animated Rodimus, so thats a good sign.

    His weapon was cool too, reminded me of that blonde kid's bow in the old Dungeons and Dragons cartoon.

    Loved him! Definately getting shades of badaft Energon Rodi in there too as well as G1 Rodi. Was that realy Judd voicing him? If so, I liked the the more mature sound his voice had as a result of the actor being older now too. Wanna see more of him and his whole team. Hated that cliffhanger -what happened to them all? Glad he'll be back in the season.

    I didn't like him for hurting Spittor.
