    Ok, so funny thing. I ordered Henkei Hot Rod when he went up for Pre-order a month ago, and I have seen him go up at other sites. But I was on BBTS today, and saw tht they now have CLASSICS Roddy up for pre-order.

    C-05 Classics Hot Rodimus - Transformers Classics Japanese Henkei Classics

    I was like, oh man, now they are selling Classics Roddy too huh? SO I go into my pre-orders, and they have mine listed as Classics Rodimus too, when I am pretty sure before it said Henkei Rodimus? Am I tripping or did sh!t get changed around?

    Pretty sure that's still Henkei:

    1. It's "Japanese Henkei Classics"
    2. It's C-05
    3. It's Takara

    I also checked my order history:

    4. Henkei Rodimus was still called "Classics" back in 2009. And $25, sigh.

    Yeah I saw all that, and I know it all means Henkei, but the pic is Classics, the title labels it as Classics, and if a Classics Roddy shows up, I'd be kinda upset.

    That's weird. Wonder if they're going to ditch the chrome for this release.

    C-05 is the number designation for Henkei Rodimus, like MP-01 is for Masterpiece Convoy.

    I wouldn't worry about it. It's Henkei. I don't know why they put that classics pic up.

    They've done that for every Henkei and United figure that I can recall, as a placeholder. It's usually updated, but I think that image has been there forever.
