    Hate the idea of Rodimus as a Mirage repaint, but I'll grant that as an entirely different character it looks pretty damned nice.

    And the girl figure is much less disturbing than the bondage concept art.

    Fantastic. Couldn't have happened to a nicer mold.

    He could use a little WANGTONGUE, tho.

    Why yellow hands? Oh well, nothing is perfect. It's still a decent toy.

    I hope they use that new head sculpt (knowing Hasbro, yes) for an Alternator Rodimus, I'm loving the figure but I need flames on the vehicle mode to sell me. And I wouldn't mind ditching the bondage-collar anime girl he's saddled with.

    I can't be sure what to think of the head sculpt. This image doesn't really do it in terms of clarity. Also, I'm slightly miffed that his legs aren't orange like in the concept. The girly-girl doesn't interest me much - they never have. Spike would have related better, but it wouldn't jive well with the Kiss Player concept (like that's saying much).

    However, I bought Convoy, I support Alternators/Binaltech and all its ilk and so I will get this as I really dig what they have done for the most part. Yellow hands and such shouldn't be a surprise... it's been that way since concept. All in all, I hope he still has his fishing rod. :)

    it just occured to me, this may be the one time you might want to invest in takatomy despite having no die cast.

    if theres one alts have proven, they havent rendered red alts well. not since sideswipe and most recently not with prime.

    I only wish his legs were orange, he's just got a little too much red everywhere. But otherwise it's great. And the figure is super cute. Much less pervy than Marissa, and she's eating steamed dumplings! So cute! I'll be buying this one for sure.

    I'm really glad to see they kept to a realistic alt mode and didnt put the flames on the hood.

    Yeah the upper legs should be orange. I like the subtle splashes of maroon though. I hope we get this guy for the Alternatos line.
