    Just for fun, the final release in the Takara Tomy campaign will be the long anticipated masterpiece figure. Not a question of who you WANT it to be but who you THINK it would be? Hotrod or Rodimus Prime?

    Not holding my breath for this, but given how well masterpieces are designed, and how similar Hot Rod and Rodimus look in bot mode-

    it would be really cool if they managed to design an version with interchangeable vehicle panels that could be hot rod or rodimus.

    Like I said, probably wishful thinking on my part.

    I am concerned that Hot Rod will either be the smallest MP toy we've seen or grossly overscaled vs. everything else in the MP/BT world.

    Time will tell. Regardless, I'm looking forward to this.

    Galvatron? lol, it will probably be Hot Rod, that way you can reenact Primes death scene.


    Dead Prime should of come with a voice chip that says
    "OUT OF THE WAY HOT ROD"

    or maybe thats what the bonus 10 point stand says?

    lol!

    My primary concern with this figure is not "Hot Rod vs. Rodimus Prime," actually, more like "is he as tall as Grimlock or as tall as Optimus Prime?"

    I want it to be the former. In fact, I will pass on a figure as large as OP.

    However, they may be able to finesse it. If RP is as tall as OP, but HR is as tall as Grimlock, I might be swayed.

    I am very curious to find out SOMETHING more about the engineering of this figure.

    I'd think it would be Rodimus Prime. Hot Rod barely appeared after the movie, he was mainly Prime through season 3, so they'd essentially be making a MP figure of a bit part character.

    One takara designer said that awhile ago, but I doubt it because of the price, 3 points worth in the campaign and almost the same price as Predaking. If it was Hot Rod to RP, the price would probably go up higher than 3 points in the 2010 TF Campaign.

    My gut feeling tells me that this masterpiece is going to be Rodimus Prime, the price points for one reflects that. And if it is Rodimus Prime, then its going to be slightly smaller than MP-4 Masterpiece Convoy in robot mode and smaller in vehicle mode, OP just have that big trailer where Rodimus as with his G1 toy counterpart, can slide in below his trailer.

    Hmmm...

    I'm thinking it'll be Rodimus Prime. But either one would be fine with me!

    I think it will be Hot rod. If they do Rodimus, then they'll have to deal with the trailer section. I know it can incorporated into the bot, but I think Rodimus would be easier.

    Rodimus Prime. It's logical that he follow the "dead" Optimus Prime because he's the next bearer of the Matrix, and Ultra Magnus already has an MP figure.

    The guys in the podcast were saying that awhile back the designer at Takara said that if they did a Masterpiece Hot Rod, he'd like it to be done where it can be either Hot Rod or Rodimus Prime in one pacakage. Hopefully this is what will be released.

    Not sure anymore? After seeing G1 Predaking today as one of the 2010 pieces, I wouldn't be surprised if Takara Tomy just gave us a G1 Rodimus. I was really hoping for a Rodimus Prime and Galvatron masterpieces. Oh well, we shall see, just fed up of the wait.

    ^ Regrettably, you are poorly informed, sir. Takara has been dropping mad hints, and ones specifically for an MP Rodimus. Do a search for this forum.

    It is 99% a sure thing, and that 1% is only because we haven't sen a picture.

    (Seriously, who would even BUY a reissue?)

    The biggest point I have for the masterpiece to not be Hot Rod is the price point. 3 points is around Predakings price $180+/-. Even the original Takara Optimus Convoy was around $100... So that makes me believe that with the price hovering at $180+/- I have an intuition that this is going to be Rodimus Convoy. I could be mistaken but my gut feelung tells me its RP.

    Oh dear, I hadn't realized that the "points" were so closely linked with the cost of the figure.

    Man, I want MP Rodimus like burning, but I'm going to feel silly if he comes out in the US right away for $60.
