    How big will he be t be in the 187 price point? Think about it, if he is Starscream's siz he will be an easy pass for me.

    we'll at least the high price,more than guarantees this toy will be huge.
    I'd rather pay over $200 for a MP Rodimus Prime,just to get a 9 inch+robot mode.

    paying a lower price around $80 more than guarantees the MP Rodimus Robot mode will be voyager or under size level. because the trailer eats up a big portion of the price.

    Yea, I'm gonna pass on this one... It's out of my budget...

    I'm not a big fan of Rodimus and so far the mold kinda looks lame.

    Dont get me wrong, MP is the best line I've ever seen. Convoy, SS, Megs and Grimlock are awesome! But Rod just dosnt look as stellar.

    FP Protector looks better than this... And it'll be cheaper.

    So far the engineering just isnt much better than the orginal made in 1986. I think Takara can design better. Look at Starscream. Not the best mold, but a clear improvement on the original. Even Grimlock had some advancements...

    Plus I'm not a big fan of the character. I always remeber him as a whiney character. Not like Optimus or even Ultra Magnus...

    And I simlpy dont have the space for a trailer / battle station...

    So (thanks for the updates) I'll keep an eye on this figure as it comes closer to production. And I'll await a Hasbro repaint in the future, too.

    Wow, that is expensive. With that price, I expect to get:
    1.Hot Rod - both mode.
    2.Rodimus Prime - both mode.
    3.Matrix.
    4.Hot Rod binocular.
    5.Hopefully MP Prime size, but I'm okay if it's Grimlock size.

    Am I asking too much for that price?

    Thats a lot higher than I expected and really throws me off a bit, I may still grab it, but we're just going to have to see how much extra cash I have in January.

    If it goes up on amaiami for significantly lower I might end up jumping on the preorder though.

    Have you been following the other thread? He has four modes. That's an engineering advancement.

    I can't argue with the budget concerns, obviously, and it's tight for me too, but for me this is a perfect intersection of character and toy. I LOVE TFTM and Season 3 G1 is my favorite season.

    Which thread?

    There was an enormous thread filled with tons of speculation, but no new facts last time I visited. Has there been more hard news since the prototype image surfaced at the China show.

    At that point there was a lot of guess work, but all we knew for sure was that he had a bot mode with a trailer/base and a Winnebago mode.

    If there has been more hard news, I'm disappointed they didn't bother to front page it.

    ^ That's the thread I'm talking about. It either has four modes, or nothing about the toy as we've seen it so far actually makes sense. No press release or anything, but I trust the analysis from the people who've put in the time and pored over every pixel of every picture.

    Well, I'll be very happy when you guys are proven right. I would love it if it turns out to have a respectable Prime mode and Hot Rod mode!

    That other thread grew a lot in between me checking it. Did I read over there that who ever saw it in person said it was close to Predaking's height? Which would mean he's MP Prime & Megs height?

    ^ That's the current rumor, but I haven't seen a picture that utterly convinced me yet. I think it is the case though, which would help justify the price at least.

    Wish it wasn't that big, but he is after all a "titan among lesser robots" according to Marvel UK, lol.

    At Predaking's height, that puts him closer to Grimlock and Starscream, not to Prime and Megs. Which I very much prefer. Prime and Megs are just too tall to be practical.

    I have no idea how tall Predaking is in comparison to the MP's, but I'm hoping it's Grimmy/Seeker size.

    I am more than willing to pay the $200 price tag on Masterpiece figures as long as they keep the new molds coming.

    If he is around the same height as Predaking, then he'll be close to the same height as Grimlock/Starscream, maybe slightly taller.
