    black rodimus


    I thought this thing was supposed to be fake? Maybe I am thinking of the black godbomber.

    I don't think that is for real. At the very least, it is a test shot, or maybe a lunchtime special. Looks almost like someone tried the colors to see how the mold would look in them.

    It's a test shot. It first hit Ebay at the same time as the TRU Rodimus Prime was in production. There was a similar color of Rodimus proposed as a LD (with no yellow), but it was never made IIRC and they went with the gold Primus version instead. MOT has relisted it MANY times with no bites...but at higher and higher prices :p

    That's an ugly toy. I'm a Rodimus fan, but my God that's ugly. What draw in hell would you have to enter to win that?

    Looking for something nice to say... um... ooh, rubber tyres! :D

    It would look good on my shelf--possibly factioned as a decepticon--maybe paint the eyes red for sort of a posessed look, but I dont trust the seller.

    These guys have listed this same auction for...Oh I don't know...About 2-3 years now. They list it, it doesn't sell ,they wait a month or os and list it again. It didn't sell the first 80 or so auctions for $1500, so I doubt now it's going to sell now for $3000.

    If this thing is a fake or a test shot being offered by an untrustworthy dealer, then why is it being touted on the front page as an unreleased LD? I mean, if this has been listed before, why make news about it now and confuse people.

    Yep Joe is right about the auctions (we watched the last 5 attemps when the price dropped from 3k to 1500 over the cause of a few months. MOT seems to have forgotten about that.

    Ok, said. :wink: 

    I was about to say the same thing as M.O.T had been "pushing" this item on eBay for some time already.

    You mean people only noticed it now??

    Exactly, this piece has been posted on and off with no biters. Their perfect logic dictates that raising the price further will help as time pass by.

    You've been bitten too Tcracker? Man you've gotta hit me up when you're in town, we'd have a blast TF hunting :thumbs2:

    As someone else already has said, this is an oooooooold auction for a test shot (or lunchtime special) for the original Takara reissue -- it just happens to be black, and has nothing to do with any LD. Heck, the Primus LD came in a white Hasbro Commemorative-style box, and not a Takara regular reissue one.

    Who would want that? The original figure was kind of crap. Making it all the color of a shadow and mountain dew doesn't sound too smart.
