    Rodimus Prime. One of my favorite characters, if not the top one. I want his story retold in a better fashion because I see potential and am dismayed the fandom general dislike him.

    I look at my Battle in Spade Rodimus and yearn for it to be as articulated as WFC Prime. I'm constantly tempted to buy Animated Rodimus even though I dislike the aesthetics (almost entirely the chin).

    So can someone please tell me why I have zero desire for MP Rodimus? By all accounts I SHOULD be practically drooling for it. I should be trying to scrounge up the money for one.

    And yet, every picture I see invokes nothing. Heck even Protector armor from FansProject does nothing for me. But I KNOW if they released a new deluxe Rodimus with modern articulation I would buy it.

    So am I just crazy?

    Hey Ryoku,its not crazy.I just think you just don't wanna pay $200+ for MP Roddy,but honestly he is worth it for the most part but if he hadn't come with his trailer I would say hell no.I have him but like I said not worth it if no trailer.If I were you I would wait for the Hasbro version,as he will probably be around the $60-$80 range for him without the trailer.
    Hope that helps.

    How obstructive is his crotch panel piece? can he actually hold a wider angle pose or is he left with the legs being stopped by the red briefs?

    If Animated Rodimus' chin bothers you, yes, you're crazy.

    It's a great figure. Not the best mp figure but still great. I can't stop looking at it. His expensive cause it comes with the trailer, but in my opinion this is the definitive Rodimus to date and I think his great.

    (keeping in mind that most people pay $200+ for him and for that price there should be NONE of the problems that people have been complaining about >_>)

    There are a lot of figures that tend to be incredible after you get them in hand. I had no real desire for HFTD Starscream, RTS Jazz or Generations Drift, but got them due to recommendations, and they just completely blow me away.

    Yes you have to get him....Rodimus Prime is not Rodimus Prime without the trailer....don't wait for the Hasbro version, you will regret it. It truly is an awesome figure. The alt mode is incredible!

    The Lonestar Space Winnebago mode is pretty great, but Hot Rod's alt mode is 10x better. The curves and lines of the car are just amazing. I thought Grimlock had the best alt mode until I got HR in hand.

    +1 He's just "meh" to me. I'll be fine with the Hasbro version, but worth $220, he's not.

    MP Rodimus is awesome. I love the trailer its simple but effective and looks AMAZING! Sadly i do not have the space right now to display him with the trailer so i just have the figure displayed with my other MP figures.
