    I hadn't seen a review of him yet so...

    First impressions, Bot mode:
    He is taller than I had expected - a good head taller than Ti-Thundercracker and he has very good articulation - probably the best yet with a mix of joint types - knees are hard ratchets; above knee swivel, hips, waist and shoulders are soft ratchets and the rest - top of arm, under shoulder, upper forearm, toe and neck are friction joints - all nice and firm. His gun looks good - like a shortened G1 rodimus gun.
    The only niggles I have about the bot mode are the spoiler which is too far behind his head and a bit small considering it gets folded away in van mode, and the chest flames would look better with a bit of shading on them rather than the plain yellow.

    Van mode is ok - the best you could expect for a bot mode that combines the cab and trailer, it's a shame that the spoiler has to fold up for it, and the arms don't seem to want to clip into the trailer solidly (unless I have it mistransformed).
    On the plus side the windshield is transparent blue plastic as opposed to the painted look on the packaging, also the gun stores away nicely in the trailer.

    The packaging looks really nice too - actually worth keeping to display him in.

    Overall I'd give it an A - he's probably the best version of Rodimus prime so far - we just need a titanium galvatron to go with him.

    That looks great. I'm really anticipating this release (in Canada :rolleyes2  ). So does he have a bicep swivel?

    The swivel is directly below the elbow joint - so not really the bicep.

    Correct, toyzandgames.com - they also have 6" soundwave in.

    I'm hoping for mine to arrive soon - if he's as good as you say he is, I might have a new favourite TF.

    Sweet.

    I'm gonna be in the US in a week - I'll have to see if I can find him.

    LOVE the high Canadian Dollar right now!

    I am SO looking forward to getting this guy. This is the Rodimus Prime toy I wanted way back in the day. It would've been nice if they would've put a matrix compartment in him, and gave him a larger spoiler, but I won't bitch, I mean at least we're actually getting him in the first place right? I'm way happy he has a real windshield, and that it's not painted. That helps out his appearance a lot.

    My only real complaint is that we don't have a Titanium (or even Classics for that matter) Galvatron. How do we manage to get a Rodimus Prime, Scourge, Movie Ultra Magnus, and no Galvatron?

    Now all we need is a 6" Titanium Galvatron to compliment him, or an Ultra Magnus that isn't a white repaint of WW Prime.

    We are getting an original Ultra Magnus.

    I will definitely pick up Rodimus. So far it looks like the best TT yet. I'm glad they went with clear plastic for the windshield, it helps a lot. I also like the Japanese-ish style of the flames.
