    Takara Animated Rodimus Prime
    or
    Masterpiece Rodimus

    for not on sale till next year, personally recommend Animated One.

    How about your guys ideas?

    Animated Rodimus. MP doesn't come out till next year and is not planned for a North American release.

    I'm a big classics fan and love my classics Rodimus but hands down.. Animated Rodimus looks damn great and an outstanding figure!! I'm noticing the clear animated Rodimus looks really hot as well!!

    I don't plan on picking up Animated Hot Rod but i'm getting MP Rodimus Prime, no question:rock 

    From a financial standpoint, i'd say Animated wins because it doesn't cost 200+ shipping:lol

    that animated toy is called "Rodimus minor." it represents the hotrod persona not the rodimus prime persona.

    there are currently only 3 super poseable action figure toys that are & represent the Rodimus prime persona. which are MP Rodimus Prime,Titanium 6 inch Rodimus Prime. Energon Rodimus.

    I dislike the animated Rodimus minor toy. because it looks like a toddler friendly kiddie styled updated homage based off the classics 1.0 Rodimus toys.

    I love all the rodimus & rodimus prime updated homage toys minus the animated toy.

    As far as your question goes, Animated Rodimus is a very attractive toy. He stands so majestically. Off all my animated figures, he is the one that most looks like he is meant to lead. Not saying Prime and Magnus aren't strong, it just that's how awesome Animated Rodimus is.

    I don't even really like Rodimus as a character, but the Animated version is one of the better TF's (from any line) I've seen this year. He's so simple, yet so poseable at the same time.

    Masterpiece no doubt. The Animated toy is nice for an Animated toy, but that's not saying much in my opinion. There is no comparison, no way no where. :)

    I have the exact same opinion... I never cared much for Rodimus yet I think his animated incarnation is a superb toy.

    MP Rodimus makes me go meh...

    Animated Rod is AWESOME!

    MP Rod looks clean and nice...

    But my vote is for Fans Project Protector! FTW

    Although I'm less than crazy about the way they decided to design his face/head in animated I think the animated design is great. He's one of only three animated figures I ever got.

    I wish classics was designed a bit more like this toy. I think the classics style applied to this toy would be fantastic.

    I am of course more excited about the MP toy. Hot Rod has always been a big favorite of mine (although I think this MP has my least favorite paint aps of the original molds in the MP line).

    I wish Kup got more love. To me they were always a team.

    Animated Rodimus is alright but MP Rod is...well...a Masterpiece. Look absoutely amazing. They're two completely different types of concepts, it's hard to compare the two.

    Definitely getting Animated Rodimus. Not too sure I want to buy MP Rodimus, even if he does look good.

    I like my Animated Rodimus Prime. But am eagerly awaiting my FP Protecter set.

    Between TFA and MP, I would have to go with MP.
    But I have a feeling that my overall choice would be Protector.
