    Just wondering if some of you guys plan on picking up the reissue of the masterpiece Rodimus Prime. I recently bought the OP Final convoy and like the build quality much better than the original. Hoping it will be the same with the Rodimus.

    I'm getting the Hasbro version only. I don't display in alt mode so there's no reason for me to pay $150 for a plastic box.

    Nope! Buying the TRU one. Not only because its cheaper but I like the Targetmaster a million times better than the trailer.

    I'll wait for reviews.

    I already got the original MP-9 so I'm even less inclined to sell it just so I can get a new one.

    Nope not me. I had had enough with the MP-9 Rodimus Convoy mold (sold-off mine a few mths back).

    Although mine didn't have much of the QC issues that plagued some of the users here but still the whole episode just left a bad taste in my mouth. So I'll pass...

    I'm planning to save a little money with the TRU version, since I'll be buying MP-10.

    I will. But I already have 2, so I may try to get rid of one in the mean time.

    Nah. One of my first release's leg panels keeps falling off, but it's not a big enough problem to spend another $200 on a new one.

    Hmmmm....sounds like Takara needs to add a warranty on this piece for people to feel comfortable purchasing it. I guess I will play it by ear or if I find a good deal on it. Thanks for the feedback.

    Not buying the reissue. I have the first release of mp-9, and mine did not come with any qc issues. So no need for me buying another. I am still getting the TRU release to stuff in the trailer, since I'd rather have the takara rodimus in bot mode because of the more cartoon acurate color scheme.

    I'm considering it, but will be waiting for several reviews of it before I commit. I get annoyed if I buy a $15 figure with shitty QC, so obviously I'm treading easy on one that costs about $250 (after shipping) and already has a horrible QC reputation.

    Probably not. I've been pulling back, since I don't have time to open half of what I've bought in the last two years.

    I have the MP-09 version. But I'm debating whether to get the TRU version or not.

    If it's truly fixed the problems we all had I would consider buying it.

    I have it in my POL, but between the US release, the dark repaint, and other things on my "to get list" I will probably cancel it for now. Just not the biggest priority for me at this moment.

    I am. And probably the Hasbro version as well. It should be fine to have them both do to the display Options changeing one to Rodimus Prime.
    I like the takara versions colors a lot better. But Even though Hasbros version is'nt based perfectly on anything. It just comes across as inspired by the old Toy colors.

    Edit: forgot I have a preorder for the black version as well. one of the loudest colored G1 Autobots evil clone looking like G1 darkwing. A equally vibrant colored deception.
    doubt that's the intention. But it seems to be played for 80s Autobot and Decepticon color pallet. At least
