As much as I'm enjoying Whirl, Rodimus is one of my favorite characters. And seeing him be this awesome in the books is sure helping that. As someone said, those who hate him because of what Megatron did in the 86 movie should read these books. I love his character description in the annual. He's cocky but beneath that he's self conscious, but beneath THAT he believes he's better than everyone. Totally nailed his character to a T. TILL ALL ARE ONE!
