    I like it, some hate it, some also like it. The head is deliciously divisive. :D

    Would you say Protector's plastic colours more or less match up alright with Henkei Rodimus? I lack an H-Rod and was wondering- it seems like it's a good fit going by the pics.

    Has anyone tried putting an SG rodimus in the armor just to see what it looks like? I don't know why, I'm just curious to see how the red and black look together.

    I'm surprised by how well it looks with the Henkei's chrome. I think that's the version I'll probably use since I'll also have DIA Commander in my line up with his chrome and the rest of my Henkei deluxes too.

    The bag is actually Sidearm. The secret is in the Protector box.

    Can anyone show us non-Classics/Henkei Rodimus owners pics of the 3-pack/2-pack Rodimus with the armor?

    Here ya go. Robot mode still looks bearable (left bot is the 3 pack version) but the vehicle mode colours really don't gel at all.

    Oh I posted this originally in Vangelus' video thread, but it's here for reference to anyone interested as well.

    I've found a way to make the face, head & neck look a weee bit better on all aspects. Give the Protector face a light tug and the whole face actually slides out.

    I've chosen to *not* insert the face all the way in. This helps hide Hot Rod's real chin behind the helmet, and it gives Rodimus a bit of a browline above his eyes, which REALLY make him look more like an actual Transformer. In my book, anyway. Was never a fan of the "eyes must touch the helmet" sculpts favoured by FP.
