    The spoiler is nice, but since I don't do reprolabels its a bit rich just for that since I already have one from shapeways thats good enough.

    Putting a spoiler on just highlights "somethings missing" on an otherwise awesome figure - Why did DX9 leave out the spoiler in the 1st place?

    That's a 'safe' assumption but even if it was due to a mould alteration they still could have put a clip-on part in the box no? Reprolabels to the rescue again.

    Well, it was a joke - 3P toys are mostly aimed at adult collectors anyway as the majority are meant to appeal to MP fans, but it is odd. Either way, it's a neat custom part, but a lot of people wish it was available separately it seems.

    btw guys I don't actually have carry, though i've been planning to get one for quite some time. Now i'm stuck choosing between Carry and his SG variant terror, and i can't seem to make up my mind which to get, they both look amazing. I would get both, but I can't justify spending the $$ on both of them. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Get Terror if you intend to collect the SG guys. If not, get Carry.

    IMG_1328.JPG Fan moded the targetmaster for the alt mode. With apologies to anybody that may have done this first and I just didn't see it. This reminds me of configuring the drone on the top of G1/MP10's trailer. Also reminds me of the cannon inside G1/MP-09's trailer.

    Still loving this figure. I don't regret replacing MP-09 with this guy in the slightest. He might not be cartoon accurate but he is way more interesting and badass looking.

    I always felt that MP-09, in the Rodimus Prime mode, looked like a bureaucrat. The Autobots will never be audited by the IRS on his watch.

    I think Carry's proportions gives him heroic stature and makes him feel like a worthy successor to Optimus.

    I still don't get why this figure which is based on Rodimus (not Hot Rod) includes a Targetmaster and not a photon rifle and Takara's MP Hot Rod 2.0 has no Targetmaster.

    IMO, if you took this and removed some of the unnecessary detailing and created a mechanism to swap the wheels from the front of the arms to the back this guy would look a lot more in line with the MP aesthetic.

    I'd actually love to get one but man, the prices here are pretty prohibitive. AUD$200 if I'm lucky. Bit much to spend on something that isn't going to be a centerpiece for me.

    Eness designs sent me the below instruction sheet for carry, if anyone's interested.

    Hmm. I thought the Reprolabels set was good, that's better.

    Maybe. Clean up a lot of the extra greebles (they stand out versus other early MP linework in that the detailing is a lot heavier - MP-10, MP-13 had subtle lines and detailing to add some interest. Carry takes it a bit more extreme). It also needs the arm swap mechanism you mentioned and a new, more rounded head - the angular Ox head is pretty far off the G1 look.
    It also needs a nice glossy paint job! Carry's more matte effect paint job doesn't look as nice as the high gloss look of other car bots.

    Doesn't fix the teeny-tiny alt mode though. It was a clever way to do an all in one transformation but the resulting truck is tiny. It might be an interesting remould project for DX-9 though.

    Personally I either want an improved KO of MP-09 or FansToys to do a Rodimus influenced by their Hoodlum so the two look good together.

    Seriously - why has no-one KO'd MP-09 with better joints and higher quality plastic? We've got MP-10 in every size, shape and colour you can poke a stick at but no-one want's to touch Rody!

    Does anyone know if there was an add-on kit created to extend Carry's forearms?

    Looks like the spoiler is up for pre-order on BBTS
