    Manage to snag a Hot Rod this weekend. Noticed it was shiny and flat like the 1st version of Arcee. What are the odds of Hasbro releasing a matte version later?

    Please not too many "I haven't even found one yet" comments.

    i payed $30 with free shipping on ebay for mine, add gas and how much searching it would of taken to find the damn thing, i think $30 is reasonable

    I thought that was the case too but once I had the two in my hands the difference is pretty obvious. The flat shiny version reflects the line whereas the matte version doesn't. I just kinda glows.

    I just want a Rodmus. I don't care if it's matte, shiny, or balding.

    I must have the shiny one because mine has faint sparkles.

    On a shelf I seriously can't tell though.

    Understandable. She feels REALLY fragile whenever I just hold her.
