    I remember a number of weeks back seeing a blurry proto pic of a Rodimus upgrade kit. I think it was by the guys who did the City Commander. Anyone know anything new on this kit? Is it definetly a go?

    Probably not until they're done working on their trailer for Classics Optimus Prime.

    That's the armored looking trailer with Roller as the back tread/wheels right?

    No that one is by Best Toys. Fansproject Did the City Commander. I think Fansprojects Optimus Trailer looks WAAAAAAAY better than Best Toys trailer.

    there are so many garage kits these days, but most of them seem to only deal with the classics Prime mould. I've not heard anything about the Rodimus upgrade, but I am looking forward to it when they get to it.

    No. That's the BST one.

    The one that Fansproject are doing looks and unfolds more like the original trailer and even can eject Roller from it. It's also supposed to come with a bunch of weapons for different characters (particularly a really cool looking sword that appears to be meant for Grimlock).

    I can't wait for this and the rest of fansprojects goodies.
    I hope we get more info, like a non-blurred prototype pic, very soon.

    From what I've heard the Rodimus upgrade likely won't be out until 2010. The blurry preview picture was just released so that we'll know FansProject is working on one and it will likely be a lot better than anything made by another garage kit company.

    Ah. Thought it was just the MP Prime getting an original styled trailer. Dang. Who can keep track anymore of all these trailers?


    And yeah, I'm Vic from the TFCC board.

    If the Protector upgrade is anything like the quality of the City Commander, it should be awesome. I'm hoping they'll get it done by this fall and maybe release it by Christmas. It's definitely on my buy as soon as the preorder comes out list. I'm also hoping they'll have a better image or prototype at Botcon.

    Yeah, there's like three different fan trailers being released right now. BST is releasing one in both Classics Prime and Universe Nemesis colors, IGear is releasing one that's designed to go with Masterpiece Convoy and Fansproject is releasing one that is designed to go with Classics Prime. With the exception of the MP trailer I'll probably end up buying one of each (so I'll end up with three trailers...). All this upgrade stuff by the fans is really awesome and I can't wait until better images surface of Rodimus Prime myself.

    Yeah, the trailers look cool, but they'd really just take up space on my shelves rather than adding to the display too much. Might get the Nemesis colored BST one. I'd be more interested in just getting some of these weapons being made to go with the trailers.

    Anyone else feel really let down by the Classics/Henkei Rodimus mold itself? Compared to other deluxes (especially Cyclonus and Hound), it has a woefully simplistic transfomation. No radial elbow articulation, no posable feet, no waist articulation . . .

    I basically got that mold JUST in anticipation of the fansproject upgrade kit.

    I already got rid of the mold and would now be rebuying it just for the kit. Oh me.

    Ooooh, definitely looking forward to the upgrade if they do make it.

    Finally picked up a Henkei Rodimus yesterday and if the kit looks good, i'm dropping some cash on that.
