    Wow, he's shorter looking than I expected!

    Any chance you could snap a direct size comparison between Hot Rod, Dutch, and Mightron (with each standing straight up)?

    As you can see still fooling around with paint fixes to rodimus IMG_7471b.jpg
    Probably will end up painting the gun black too.

    I wonder how big MFT OS Mightron would be compared to this guy?

    MFT Megatron is only slightly taller than the Galvatron in those photos. Top of his head is basically at the top of Galvatron's crown.

    I can take a pic tomorrow for you, if you'd like.

    Edit: Here you go. Unfortunately, MFT made their Megatron way too tall.

    Why do you say that? Isn't Megatron supposed to be taller than Hot Rod?

    Good thing I saw your post. This will make a perfect Rodimus Prime and seems to be a perfect match for MFT Galvatron. Or maybe I should wait for a smaller Hot Rod; there's room for only one Prime in my cab. lol

    Anyway, that's Dutch right? Looks like I won't be getting him after all.

    Megatron is as tall as Iron Factory's Skorponok. Rodimus/Hot Rod is pretty much the same height as DX9 Optimus.

    Wait...
    Are you serious?
    Mft Megatron and IF Scorponok are the same height?
    Do you have picture of those two figures together, or any visual reference by chance?

    No they are not the same height. They're not even the same anything. I think he might have just been joking around when he said that. But who knows

    Ok, full disclosure. I was eyeballing it when I posted that. They were on separate shelves. However, I just put MFT Megs right next to Skorponok and he is as tall as the top of Skorpy's chest. I also stood him next to IF Skyfire and he's roughly the same height.

    I would imagine he's a bit taller than Skyfire, right?
    Would you also happen to have the Mft Ultra Magnus? If you do, how do they scale?

    Edit:
    Nevermind. I found the Lord Scorpion thread, and there's a photo comparing these two.

    I love this little Roddy. Very solid and well made figure. Transformation is really fun with a cool little twist I wasn’t expecting. Joints are all tight, everything tabs together snugly. Perfect little pocket Roddy for me.

    The only issue I had was the spoiler pegging in too tightly due to it being painted. Once I scraped off a little paint from the peg it fit perfectly.

    I'm thinking he'll look great with the X2 Toys Prime - I'll shoot some pics of them together once my Hot Rod arrives.
