    Hmmm... Protector looks like it's designed to go with Classics Rodimus as opposed to the Henkei or Challenge at Cybertron version.

    Only one I don't have... :banghead: 

    I don't recall ever seeing that little drone buggy before though. How new is that? I may have completely missed it previously of course.

    Overall, looks amazing and I'm so glad I have one on pre-order. There are by far the best pics I have seen to date.

    Hmm..the flame deco on the side of the alt mode is a bit tacky. The yellow is very bright which makes it look weird..maybe it would have been better if the yellow was on the inside, surrounded by the orange, for a more natural progression of the colors?..

    Didn't know that it came with it's own roller..that's cool!

    Loving the shapes used. Would like a closeup of the face.

    I'm with Digilaut, too. The flame deco on the sides is a little weird...

    Otherwise, love it. Will definitely be picking it up. Not like there was any doubt of that before...

    Usually FP stuff is an instant buy for me.
    The enginering looks very clever and the Roller drone is a nice touch but there's somthing about this that's keeping me on the fence.

    Might be the potato cut print chest detail.

    yeah, the feet look kinda weird, but I still like it. I wonder if they'll make another cgi clip of how to transform him ala City Commander?

    Well its obviously not the final product, but seeing it in color only made my anticipation shoot up more. The face obviously needs some paint on there, and I really wished the pictures had Sidearm in robot mode, but overall I'm impressed with the size and level of detail on the trailer.

    Now thats a Rodimus with add ons that I will be proud to own. I just wonder why it has to come from overseas and that I have to wonder why Hasbro can't make add-ons themselves.

    Its kinda sad that even FansProject can't find something more meaningful to do with most of Rodmus Prime's "trailer."

    Exactly what I'm thinking. I don't wanna sound like a downer but this doesn't say "Rodimus Prime" to me at all. Where as FPs did great likenesses of both UM & Springer, This botmode looks hardly anything like Rodimus Prime. *cancels pre-order*

    translating the Chinese....

    Here are the important points of the guy that played with the set:

    1. Post was very impressed with the upgrade. He said that Hot Rod alone was an "ok" figure, but with the Protector it made a "world of difference".

    2. Because the Protector unit in the picture is the prototype, he cannot comment on the paint or how well the colors mesh with Hot Rod.

    3. One point of note is TFX-05 Sidearm. The poster was amazed that when transforming into a gun, his limbs lock in place very well, to which he compared it to Cyclonus classics target master, which he says "doesn't know when he is a gun or when he is something else"

    4. He liked the proportion of the combined car mode and the combined robot mode. The "fire" decol are really really cool. (in his words he says "explosive!")

    5. He rated it a 10/10 for playability and handling feel.
