    I found this picture of animated rodimus but I don't know if its official or not.
    If this has been posted before I haven't seen the old thread.
    I think it might be a photoshoped job to the mold or something.
    I found it on TFwiki.net

    Yes, its real. The figure was shown at last year's Botcon. We still don't know when or where its going to be released, though.

    Yes, the figure is real, but you said "I think it might be a photoshoped job to the mold or something." which makes me think you're asking about the color scheme. And if you are, then yes, the color scheme is photoshopped, not real, just like EVERY Official Hasbro Photo since mid-Beast Wars.

    Hasbro shouldn't have photoshopped him cause he ain't gonna sell good with pics like those.

    They photoshop every Official picture. Tbh I'd rather it was shoped than mis-transformed

    Have you seen any other official Hasbro photos?

    And it's clear by now that it doesn't matter what the picture looks like for it to sell, so long as there's a picture of the figure.

    Yes, hopefully it is this and not that the choice of red is so dark it looks like he is made out of chocolate. He'd look good next to Nebular SS, mmm.

    If Hasbro doesn't get it out to market, consolation is that Takara will. And thankfully, since he's not a primary cast member, he'll probably get the matte finish treatment like the US Animated toys, so he'll fit right in.

    And even if he winds up getting the shiny treatment, at least the shiny actually fits Rodimus, and he wouldn't look too bad amongst his Elite Guard buddies.

    Given what we've seen so far, the Takara version will likely have a shine to it.

    Blackout and Shockwave don't. The metallic finish only seems to be applied to the core cast members.
