    OK, so the Rodimus on display at Botcon had a date listed as "JULY."

    Was that accurate or was it mislabeled like the Prime toys?


    Searching through Botcon threads has been inconclusive thus far.

    They definitely said $49.99 in July as far as I know, but no specific date was given. I'll be heading into my local TRU next week to see if customer service can tell me when it hits or at least what days the trucks in July will be running. I will be using scalper tactics this time around and do my best to make sure my butt is at the door right at opening after every restock. I'm gonna do everything I can to not miss this one at retail like I did Grimlock.

    My guess is that they would release him anywhere in-between fall/winter(x-mas) time.

    SDCC at the end of July will have some more information like last year with Grimlock.

    Yup not untill after SDCC. IIRC grimlock was first being sold at comic-con, and then was released 1-2 weeks after that.

    Hopefully in the fall, gives me time to save up and buy two right on the spot. I missed out the first time around.. Won't make that mistake again.

    It could go up $30 and still be a better value than the Takara release.

    'Takara only make toys for the Japanese market'


    i guess the extra $50 on MP 10 will cover the QC end then.


    :rolleyes2

    I'm very happy with the price, knew if I ignored JP release we'd get somehting better, although $50 is even better than I'd hoped.


    Dang it trailbreaker77, you Avatar always puts bad thoughts in my mind.

    He'll probably be out next month or August. I'm patient. I can wait... Too much other stuff coming out, anyway.


    I love it. I want a full sized version... or a gallery. :lol

    Value, sure. But that thing is ugly as sin compared to TT's release.
    Getting him for the extras then shoving the figure in my MP-09 trailer.

    MP-09 upgrade kit for $50 is the way I'm seeing this.

    It's really a moot point...it's not a movie toy so it won't be available in stores.

    Thank Primus. I don't care if it's plastic, but I do not want to pay 165 dollars for the version that is out there now.
