    Hi Guys,

    Rodimus Prime is like Marmite. You either Love him or hate him! I am a fan and have been since the 80's. I have been waiting for a decent toy ever since. Titanium RP was a nice update but he deserves better!

    Your vote please;

    Who would like to see RP in the new universe line?
    Voyager or Ultra?

    probably no since rodimus was in the original classics line. many use titanium rodimus prime as a classics stand in. i wish it was though (look at my name)!

    Rodimus Prime is likely for a few reasons:
    1) There was A Rodimus in Classics so they could re-release him as Hot Rod and make a back story (This could create the "premiums" concept from Henkei)
    2) Animated has a lot of Primes so this would become easy to do.
    3) the Universe line is celebrating the 25th Anniversary and Rodimus Prime is a good representation for the first transformers movie

    That's taking it too far. He MIGHT be a Deluxe but more likely Voyager or Ultra


    Yes
    But its a bit "rude" so the name wont appear; same with the name "Slag"

    To all those who mentioned 'no' because there was already a Rodimus in Classics 1.0, what about Megatron? He was released in the original classics line and here we have Galvatron in Universe/Classics 2.0. Why couldn't the same be done with Rodimus. Am I missing something?

    There are a lot of characters I'd rather see before Space Winnebago.

    If he was done though, he'd be out of scale with Galvatron if he was bigger than a Deluxe, but he'd probably have to be a Voyager.

    I'd be all for it. I always liked the characters design. Classics Rodimus is ok, and Titanium Rodimus Prime was pretty good, but RP really needs a solid update and "Universe" needs another autobot leader figure. Yeah, we got a voyager Prime, but when you think about it, that was two years ago and the mold has been used extensively enough.

    Seriously, if he does not get a release

    a) I will cry
    b) I will have to attempt to kitbash my Energon Landmine to be RP

    Because Rodimus is "Hot Rod" (Therefore a car) and Rodimus Prime would be a Truck where *maybe* the Cab would be separate and the back would be a base

    I think it's doable. They could make him resemble the officially official Pontiac G8 ST.

    Look at it! It just begs for a trailer!
