    I didn't see a thread for this... but I picked up another MP Rodimus, took it home, and noticed that it did not have the gold lettering on the front! Is this some strange packaging variant? Anyone else have this?

    Oh please. Don't tell me half the people here didn't get 2+ Rodimii, whether to sell on eBay or to help others.

    Isn't the gold lettering just a sticker? Maybe the sticker was accidentally unapplied?

    Maybe he doesn't want to? Check the sales subforum, if you're so desperate.

    Sigh... Can't a guy show something to the fandom without problems?

    Oh, wait... it's the internet... *facepalm


    Bought from two different stores. I noticed the lack of lettering and thought I would pick it up and see if anyone on TFW have ideas to why this is. Sorry you don't like the fact I got lucky to buy a second. Maybe you should move in Jersey.

    Thank you. But one is going to a friend of mine.

    I just checked, not a sticker, looks like painted into the plastic window. It is odd, isn't it?

    Definatly not a variant just another case of mass production error .... When your cranking these things out by the thousands things get missed sometimes.

    You're right.

    People who buy something before you (likely in a completely different location) probably are the reason that you couldn't find Wreck Gar in the 1st place that you checked.

    I just say LAY THE HELL OFF HIM miscreant,its people like you that totally jump to conclusions that give us TF Fans a bad name.The guy is probably telling the truth that its for a friend.

    Also I admit I buy more than one of each figure,mainly because I like having one of each in there different modes,so does that mean I am a scalper too.So don't be so quick to judge people that have more than one of a figure.

    Are you serious? You have nothing better to do than just jump aboard the "everyone's a scalper" train? REALLY?

    Do you live in Jersey? Sorry for checking stores more frequently than you. I'm selling this for $800 on ebay and there are 19 bids right now. If you believe that then I have a bridge to sell you.

    Thanks, and I did say earlier I went to two stores. Honestly I probably wasn't even going to say anything on TFW, but I thought it would have interested board-goers to know about a possible packaging variant. I didn't realize that so many angry people trolled the boards. With that, it wouldn't surprise me if someone accused me of scratching off the lettering just to drive people crazy about a variant.

    Take it easy chaps, Miscreant's being sarcastic, read his post again.


    Really, we're gonna have to stick a warning label on the lad :lol 



    As for the gold text missing, probably a misprint I reckon. Doesn't seem big enough a change to be a variant.....although having said that if more turn up the same then we'll definitely know Hasbro decided on a running change somewhere along the way to cheap out even more.


    I mean, honestly, his cuffs and neck collar are unpainted!

    Sarcasm is far too often lost over the interwebs. Though I did think the last few words gave it away.

    For those who are fussed: It's stamped right on the plastic. Tried a dab of paint thinner, didn't budge.

    Odds it was just a factory error...rather than a running change, because they'd want the title of the product sitting visibly above the toy.


    Agreed. *points down*.

    That's better :p 


    On another note more topic-orientated, how does the grey plastic used on him look in person? Looks far too dark over the internet, but then computer monitors don't make for the most honest image colouration.
    That's pretty much my one concern over this guy. Will I have to repaint the grey plastic?

    I think artificial light makes it look more 'cheap' than it really is.....but i do prefer the blocking on the Takara one.

    Edit: Day light picture came out pants, and now it's raining again. D'oh!

    I might try again later with a NON camera phone.
