    Would you still buy Rodimus Minor if given a second chance? Is he pure win, or does he wear off fast?

    He's an excellent addition to the Animated line, and an all around great figure. Great posability, excellent detail and a swee alt mode, combines with a cool weapon make it a must have.
    If I could find a second one, I'd get it.

    He is good, but I think he's a victim of hype just like Arcee. His legs bother the bejesus out of me. You have to pose him with his legs spread far out for his shins to look normal, otherwise they look like a whole Decepticon army trampled over them and now they don't look right.

    He's still one of my favorites after getting him early September (If I recall correctly). I love the Animated line in general, but this guy always stands out to me.

    He's a Toys-R-Us exclusive and has been out for the past couple of months (in the US and even here in Canada).

    Back to the original topic. Yes I'd buy him again, he's a great figure, great transformation and cool alt mode. Definately one of the top animated figures.

    He's pretty much my favorite transformer this year. I've had him for a month and I'd take pics of him everyday if I know people wouldn't get sick of him. I just don't know what to say. I think it's a phenominal toy worth all the hype, ten-fold.

    he's an excellent transformer and certainly worth the $16.38 I paid for him.

    I think he's a great toy. I'd rank it up there in the top three TF's of 2010 and I'm not even a Rodimus fan. If mine broke or I didn't have it anymore for whatever reason, I'd definitely buy him again.

    I have the Takara version and it's gorgeous. Easily one of my favorite Transformer purchases fo the year. He's a good size for a deluxe, the design and transformation is all slick and fun, and the paint job on the Takara is outrageously nice. This beautiful, deep, candy burgundy that makes him pop off the shelf. I even like his silly bow.

    I'm sure I wouldn't have liked the Hasbro version as much but the toy is great.

    I dont have him yet but hes the only recent deluxe I've bought. So visually hes the most appelaling TF for some time, only Drift has garnered similar atention from me but I passed as I'm not really bothered about the character.

    Great little guy. Second best figure in the TFA line for me, after Prowl.

    I definitely don't regret buying him, even after paying an extra $5 for a scalped one. I wouldn't go so far as to say he's one of my favorites from Animated, but he is all kinds of awesome, and I just have an unhealthy amount of love for the Animated line in general
