    What's all the info we know on this one? I've been scouring the resources section, but I can't find anything besides what I saw on the front page after it was first announced.

    It will be a Toysrus Exclusive, No trailer. He has the MP-01 matrix and supposedly the holder in his chest to hold it. Includes his saw and repair tool and a limited edition targetmaster.

    The chest holder mod is still up in the air. Some who own the Takara release have said they think it's impossible to mod that area to hold a larger matrix. I for one think somehow it will be modded to fit since there is only one Matrix shown on the box. We'll have to wait until release to find out.

    When's it supposed to be released and what's it gonna sell for? I hope it's not $70 like Grimlock (which I missed out on) was.

    Tag at botcon said July 2011 for $49.99, but no one will be surprised if it's later and more expensive.

    It's a TRU exclusive, expect it to be expensive.

    With Grimlock, could he be purchased from HTS for a lower price, or does that exclusivity mean that they're ONLY from TRU?

    ONLY from TRU, but Grimmy was available on TRU.com for a while so I imagine Roddy will be as well.

    Hasbro/TRU said a little while back that exclusives were only going to be at TRU, no more of websites buying wholesale.

    Does anyone's memory go back to when Grimlock was released? Did he hit TRU.com before, after or at the same time as he hit store shelves?

    The phrase 'TRU exclusive' generally means what it says.

    50.00 barely gets you a Leader these days. MP Roddy is a mite more complex than that....and TRU pad the pricing on exlusives anyway.

    I doubt it will be any cheaper than Grimlock.

    50 would get me like... a wave 1 Human Alliance shelfwarmer that Toys R Us refuses to mark down, haha.

    There's next to no chance of me being able to afford this, sadly.

    Are we talking about the small one that fits in he chest, or the one seen in the package? Because the one in the package sure looks a lot like the MP-01 Matrix.
