    My first impressions upon getting this is WOW! The packaging is VERY suitable for the color scheme of Wildrider.

    Wildrider, isn't black, more like a really dark cool gray, which looks VERY nice, along with the chrome spoiler, it gives the mold a fresh new look. The red headlights are a strange red chromish metallic, that I just couldn't photograph right, but it's really unique. The windows are a purplish red, and the flames are gray, not the "blue" seen in the preview pictures.

    Comparison with Hasbro Classics Rodimus:

    The back of the car is also awesome to look at! This deco really screams mean attitude, which is of course Wildrider's personality!

    The transformation is just like Rodimus. The only thing is that because of the rareness of this figure and the blingin' chrome spoiler, I was VERY careful transforming him, avoiding chipping the chrome. Chrome chips FTL! Also another thing I noticed is that the plastic doesn't "squeak" like Rodimus.

    Overall, this is just a gorgeous figure, and the cost to me was very much worth it. You can find him on ebay for about 120 plus shipping. I'll post more pics really soon!

    It looks like someone took the original Rodimus and greyscaled it. Nothing special IMO.

    The scowl is more appropriate to this figure than the cavalier "Hot Rod."

    QFT that's why I sold my Rodimus. granted I re-bought him for $3 at a convention but that damn scowl sucks

    $120 plus shipping holy cow. I think the most I would spend on a deluxe is maybe $75 but that would have to be the most perfect Classics Jazz ever!

    Thanks for the review though :thumb

    Looks pretty, but way too much "Rodimus" in that "Wildrider" for my taste.

    120 plus shipping doesn't hurt that bad when you save your money from your sales on the Junkion Exchange Boards, as that was how I got mine. :thumbs2:

    I'm Wildrider, and I just wanna bust somethin' up!

    Very nice. But it's a shame, the new Wildrider and Drag Strip figures won't be able to combine.

    This is the only Henkei (Gentei, if you will) figure I own (pending my two Thundercrackers) and I have to say, it was well worth it.
    Very, very nice paintjob, and the chrome is well-done and not out of place like it is on so many Henkei figures. 9/10

    Hmm. It looks nice, but not enough for the price it commands. And it doesn't really make me think of Wildrider.

    Thanks for the pics, though, LatinJEM!

    Exactly. They should've at least ditched the flames.

    Bah. Beardimus > Tomatoface.

    Ebay:
    Looks like a gray Hot Rod to me same a Dragstrip and I wont get that at $16.00 so this having the high price tag. Is making it easy for me to pass on this one. Glad you like it though :D .
