    Ya, I'm not sure how that is going to work. The matrix that comes with MP-09 is tiny, I cant see how anything much bigger would fit in his chest. Unless you have to leave his chest mis-transformed like the back of box pic in order to fit the new matrix.

    I like how Hasbro use the "hot rod" mode.

    Also of note, the tailpipes are indeed chromed.

    Woohoo!

    This guy looks gorgeous - he's gonna become Rodimus Prime on my shelf next to the Takara Hot Rod.

    He doesn't look as good as the Takara version, but the extras are very nice indeed. I think I'll pick this up if I see it, could always paint the legs black myself. And I wonder if they remolded the entire front of the car so that it can hold the larger Matrix.

    I'll give it this: The finish on the plastic and the overall deco looks a thousand times better out if the packaging. I guess the clear bubble cast a harsh sheen. It looks pretty good actually...

    Still doesn't touch the Takara deco, but it is squarely in the realm of "great".

    It was less of a rumor, more of a foregone conclusion.

    Or a new chest. I'm really curious about this aspect.

    I still like the Takara deco better, but this figure is looking more and more interesting.

    Lol what? They say on the package that he transforms from "Rodimus" to "Rodimus Prime." What is there other than extending the legs and swapping the face?
