    It looks fine in robot mode, but the reds are too different in vehicle mode.

    I reckon it looks like ass. The colour difference make his ridiculous stilt legs even more obvious. And in vehicle mode... man, don't even bother.

    He was the only Hot Rod I had to put the armor on, at least for the time being. If I can ever find a classics at a reasonable price, i'll pick it up.

    The BiS/CaC Rodimus was the only one I had when I got the armor, but I ended up hating how it looked. I couldn't live with it.

    Thankfully, I was able to get a Henkei Rodimus via the b/s/t board here for what wasn't a bad deal at all, IMO.

    FP needs to release a version that matches the "Battle in Space" colors since there are a lot more of these in the hands of fans. They will miss the boat in sales if the didn't.

    Just keep searching, I stumbled across one from a boardie for $65 shipped about 2 weeks ago which seemed reasonable enough for me. They are out there, and the price will probably go down a little when the hype dies down a little.

    I think we will see one at some point, it is more attainable for those who wern't collecting/are on a slimmer budget/didn't get on the boat early enough. I am turning into a Rodimus whore, so another one would be welcome to have displayed in RV mode in the display. Considered picking up a second of this version since I was able to get that Henkei Roddy, but waiting cause a little variation would be great.

    I think the current set just looks goofy with the BiS color scheme.

    My upgrade set came in the mail yesterday. I only have the BiS Rodimus due to getting back into TFs later (a few in 2008, some in 2009, and more so in 2010) and the high prices of the classics/henkei. Yea, the colors are not the same. At least you don't have to worry about scratching up the more expensive versions of Rodimus. It looks alright I guess.
