    My opinion on the suitability of the figure hasn't changed (why would it?), but as a custom I can appreciate it for what it is better. Generally customs are cut some slack for the sake of the individual's efforts, whereas for actual 3rd party merchandise standards are understandably much higher.

    I'm glad it isn't a real product, but wondering how on Earth it ever got posted as such in the 3rd party forum :confused:  The poor customiser probably wasn't prepared for this sort of response! :lol 

    If anything, hopefully this gives 3rd party groups a few ideas and we get some original MP Hot Rod and Rodimus Prime offerings down the road...

    I was very intrigued as a 3p item, knowing its a custom makes it even more awesome.

    Ok I think this is really freakin cool. The existing MP rodimus is one of the weakest masterpiece molds. IMO. This looks amazing.
