    Hi! I just want to know some of your thoughts about this -- Alternators Mirage or Rodimus? If you have to make the choice and have to pick-up only one...which would you choose?

    I still prefer Mirage but I want to know what others think.

    Mirage. The flame pattern looks ugly on the red and on the Ford GT. The best use of the mold is probably KISS Rodimus, IMO.

    I'd go with Mirage. His paint scheme looks great in both modes. Rodimus looks good, but more because of the nostalgia factor, whereas Mirage looks great with or without the nostalgia.

    That's what lighter fluid, Q-tips, and a little patience are for.

    I have to go with Mirage as well....I prefer the color scheme, and the head mold is better IMO.

    Do they even have different heads? I've got the KP Rodimus and I didn't notice a difference.

    They have to, Alt Mirage doesn't have the visor gimmick.

    As for the question, Rodimus. I love the mold as Mirage but I love me some Hot Rod... plus the aforementioned visor gimmick that gives him a bit more playability, he's unique in a line that generally has no added tricks.

    I'd go with Mirage. Better colors, and he's not Hot Rod.

    Mirage, though not by much. I prefer the darker colour and the character.

    Likewise, in a robot mode contest Rodimus has more going on but Mirage looks awesome in both modes.

    I went with Mirage because I could find it in stores for an affordable price.
    I like Hot Rod and I like the red colour of the mold, but if I never see it, I can't buy it.

    Mirage...everything just seems "right" with Mirage. When I found him at Toys R Us just sitting there for $30....I was so happy. Even if I sold all my other Alts...I'd never sell Mirage...I just love the colours and...well...everything. My favorite Alt for sure.:thumb 

    Rodimus, just makes me "meh". To each their own though.

    In spite of my undying love for Hot Rod, I'd go with Mirage. The mold just looks better with the dark blue and white stripes. Plus Mirage doesn't have yellow latex glove hands.

    Having them both in hand, I can, with authority, say Hot Rod.

    yes. Hot Rod.

    Before holding him, I would have gone with Mirage in a second, but the little red guy is just INCREDIBLE. The flames look perfect in bot mode and reminiscent of a 70s Trans Am Firebird in alt mode. He's REALLY good. I'm shocked.
