Figure King Masterpiece Rodimus Scan - Transformers News - TFW2005
Anyone else misread it as "F***ing Masterpiece Rodimus Scan" for a second?
aaaaawwwwwww yeah! I can't wait for this! just 2 more months (Late January + Transit time to the USA)
I hope I get lots and lots of expensive presents this Christmas so I can sell them to pay for this.
This guy is going to look beautiful.
I am so happy that the US realease will be Hotrod only so that I can get two versions but only one trailer.
Although the difference between HR and Rodimus are minimal I still think the two characters really shine through on this figure(s)
Agreed! Hopefully, Hasbro Hot Rod will be cheap
I might have to wait till mid March 2011 to get him!
Might be the second Japanese Masterpiece I import. That is a fine looking figure!
Transformers 2010! Coming in 2011! Errrmm.....
Wait, I thought Hot Rod and Rodimus will be the same figure.
He won't be able to transform between his younger and older self?
I must say that seeing Roddy standing on that re-decoed Classics MP OP base with his laser rifle looks darn impressive. I wasn't sold on any of the previous pics I had seen so far, but that did it for me. Glad he's still on pre-order.
whats up with that girl pose he doing?
Oh I think he will, just the Hasbro version won't have a trailer. I think. Hang on actually that's a bit odd... won't he still have all the bits and bobs to turn into the truck front? Or are they all stored in the trailer?
I'm glad Hasbro is releasing this. I don't think I'll miss the trailer since I'll probably never have him in his 'Rodimus Prime' alt mode, and I don't think I'd ever pose him in bot mode with his trailer cannon. So, it would probably just end up in the box anyway. That said, it would still be nice to have it, but... meh! I think I'll enjoy the FP Rodimus Prime trailer a lot more. This Masterpiece really does look nice though. Keep 'em comin' Takara/Hasbro. Might I suggest Galvatron or more Dinobots next?
Yes he will.
EDIT: Whoops, late to the party.
They will be the same figure.
I was just refering to the fact that I can have both forms on display and won't have to spend extra coin to get a second trailer that I will not need.
I am sure the Hotrod car will be able to transform into the Rodiums form even without a trailer (this is to answer another's comment/question)
i picture him saying "HAY HAY HAAAAYYY.. you like my big gun girlfriend!!!"
The front end of Rodimus Prime's vehicle mode is stored in the trailer. A "mid-transformation" of sorts to Hot Rod's vehicle mode gets it ready to lock into the trailer and then the front end swings out and clasps around it.
I just realized that this guy comes with a stand... I would have prefered a fishing pole or maybe a Daniel figure but oh well. My only dissapointment in this figure is that he doesn't come witht he cool extras that all the other MP's came with. If he does they are doing an amazing job at keeping it a secret.
On the Box it looks more like he's going: 'check out me armpiiitsss'
