    I likes it, and fishing poles are overrated. :)

    Have they used some sort of candy paint application for the flames on the hood?

    I don't really like the yellow hands (them being so bright) but, ok.

    Ok, so what is up with the visor gimmick? I'd rather have a fishing pole that transforms into his arm pipes.

    Where does that visor come from, anyway? Does it come down from the helmet or do you take it off and on?

    Yup... sexy. And the visor folds up under his head crest.

    not sure now, I may look for a loose KP Rodimus if I can't find this guy easily, KP just seems more subtle in alt mode.

    As nice an idea the fishing pole is, mine always falls off of his wrist... I wasn't going to get this since I have the KP one, but I'm going to try... If I CAN'T, I won't feel bad, since I have KP...

    When is this going to be on HTS? Or more appropriately, when is it going to be available at SDCC?

    This is where I am alligned in my thinking. One of the aspects of Transformers I've always thought was cool is having two toys in one; each "toy" standing alone, but both being a cohesive whole. In other words, each mode should be given a lot of consideration, e.g. one would be hard pressed to find an actual Ford GT with this type of flame paint job (or a Vette with the flame design on the hood for that matter*). The times this is done, boht modes will seem to flow into each other. The addition of the flames is more like shoehorning them on to something that really shouldn't have them. One of the nice thing about the Alt/BT is the realisic aspect to the line. I LOVE G1, but not every instance of a character has to try to adhere to a precedent set in G1.

    Another aspect about the Alt/BT line I've found really cool is the homage to G1 with adding new elements to a toy ("something old; something new"). I think Smokescreen is a very nice example of this. The essence of Smokescreen is blatantly apparent, but in alt mode the G1 and the Alt bare little resembelance.

    I really like the KP Hot Rodimus, and Alt Rodimus looks nice as well, but if I had to choose, I'll stick with KP HR. :0

    Just my cent and a half for what it's worth. :) 

    *that being said, certain cars do lend themselves to custom paint jobs because a subculture of custom cars actually exsists in the 1:1 scale (e.g. Subaru Impreza WRX, RX-8, S2000, Acura RSX, and Honda Civic)

    Oh please tell me there's a good place for repro Rodimus fishing poles. I'm also still looking for repro Decepticharge barrel, clear blue Wheeljack head part and Alt missile launchers.
