    So, now we know pretty much everything there is to know about the terrible leader's awesome Masterpiece figure.


    The question now: where will you preorder it?!


    All the usual webstores have their preorders up- bbts, kapow etc- and quite a few japanese webstores have recently grabbed some attention with their lower prices; even though ordering with them runs the risk of customs charges being added to the top like a rotten cherry.

    Where will you be going for your MP Rodimus goodness?


    My first bet was of course Kapow. But now I'm wondering if it's worthwhile to preorder with AmiAmi or Rakuten. They're both cheaper than most, but it's very much a question of how much shipping will be, and considering customs charges are likely, will their still be any savings left over ordering from the local plastic crack store.


    What do we all reckon ladies and gents?

    After much going back and forth, I finally decided to take a risk on the Hasbro version. I have too many other things coming out that I'm looking forward to MORE that will push Roddy to the backburner. (Protector and Sidearm, Shadow Scyther, all the new official releases, and other 3rd party stuff)

    Depends on (a) if there's a Hasbro release, (b) which retailer gets it as an exclusive and (c) whether said retailer puts it on their website.

    As cool as the pics make it out to be it just doesn't tickle me in that special place. As such I will have to pass.

    I'm currently not pre-ordering it. There's quite a lot of $100+ toys comming out that I want more than MP Rodimus. Also I'm really not excited by the big trailer thing (way too simple and a wast of space) so I hope for the Hasbro version to be for the figure only.

    Okay, while I am waiting for the US version... What's the point of him transforming into Rodimus Prime if he can't also transform into Rodimus Prime's vehicle mode? I think it'd be incredibly stupid on Hasbro's part to release a figure that can't utilize the mold's features...

    Hasbro can release him as Hot Rod and gimp out all the Rodimus gimmicks.

    Back on the subject, I just pre-ordered from AmiAmi. I might keep my BBTS pre-order till it arrives at AmiAmi.

    Yup remove both the extending legs & face changing gimmicks as well.

    That might lower the cost for cost-conscious Hasbro.

    I pre-ordered mine from BBTS.com,1 day after they put the item up for pre-order.

    BTW,not everyone views Rodimus Prime as a horrible leader.

    the guy couldn't have been that much of a loser. because he defeated unicron the most powerfulest transformers ever. Rodimus Prime managed to take back cybertron from the decepticons.

    Wouldn't that require new parts tooling though? It might actually be cheaper to just release it sans trailer that changing Roddy himself.

    Looks great, but he's one of the worst Transformers ever. His lame, worthless ass helped Megatron kill Prime. Screw him. No pre-order.

    you left out the part where he went up against the most powerfullest transformers UNICRON of all time & defeated him beyond repair.

    you also left out the part that Rodimus Prime was able to chase off the decepticons off cybertron. then for the first time in 5+millions of years the autobots were in charge & in control of there home world cybertron. this all happened because both unicron & galvatron got defeated by rodimus prime.

    then for a few years before rebirth happened. rodimus prime in season 3 was able to maintain that autobot control over cybertron for a few years.

    Rodimus Prime was the main reason galvatron got brain damage & got thrown into the lava bath/pool on that planet. So basically rodimus Prime made galvatron mentally challenged thus prevented him from comming up with decent plans to destroy everything. while galvatron was stronger than megatron without megatron's intelligence/competence all that brawn was totally useless.
