    I have been contemplating getting one for a while now but wasn't sure about it. Last week they disappeared from the website before black friday but now they are back up and reduced to $52.49. So i picked one up. Can any of you give me an idea if this is a good toy. A good buy for that price? Thanks in advance.

    It took me a little while to warm up to the figure, honestly, but I'm a fan now! I think it's a good deal at that price.

    For that price,I think he's worth it.He's not the greatest MP figure,but over-all he is pretty cool.

    For all the engineering in Rodimus, I think its a great buy for that price. On the other hand, you also get Offshoot, who is an excellent target masterish figure.

    Oh, if you're getting it from TRU.com, free shipping since its over $49.

    That's a good price. Buy it if you're into the MP toys. If not, it is a decent place to start.

    In relation to how much the figure normally costs? Definitely a good deal.

    In relation to the quality of the figure? Bad deal. MP Rodimus isn't good enough to be worth spending $50.

    i'm sorry, you are simply wrong. i own a first release takara rodimus and I love that figure, the engineering in it is fantastic. There are points of the toy that if there is a slight error in production that can cause trouble, but overall it is still a great figure. $50 is a steal for that figure

    For $50 USD I'd buy it. Even though I normally don't collect MP toys.

    i paid about that, and am satisfied, but it's a qc nightmare, check through the top of the box to make sure the shoulders aren't mispinned and busted

    Its not that i think my opinion is law, its rodimus has gotten a bad reputation for some bad QC issues and is unfairly beat misjudged by a lot of folks that don't own the toy

    I'd say that's a good price.... certainly a better price than the ~$200 I paid for the Takara one when it first came out V___V

    Thanks for the info guys. And yes it is free shipping. I have had quite a few MPs but have had to sell most of them. I only have Starscream and Skywarp left so i hope this will be a good addition to them until I can slowly rebuild my MP collection again.

    Also, thanks for the advice about checking out the shoulders first. Is there any other QC issues I should be aware of? Is there any parts I should be super careful with when transforming so it doesn't break?

    the ankle pin busting the foot off, offshoot's stomach pin was off in mine, the waist and chest weren't 100% straight, you could see it through the package, i could fix it though, also the panels on the sides of the legs mushroom peg is sometimes not fully formed, can't see that through the package though. all in all a decent figure, but put together horribly

    ive got 2x mp9s and one tru.

    People's concerns are justified.

    The mold has several possible points of failure and should be handled carefully
