    Since the upcoming MP09 Hot Rod Masterpiece can be converted from Hot-Rod to Rodimus Prime, I wonder if anybody is getting two of these? One for each version?
    I'm thinking of doing this, just so I can display both Hot-Rod and Rodimus together. After all, I've got both in G1 format, why not have both in Masterpiece format?
    What you think? Who else is thinking the same? Or, are you just waiting to get one and see how good he is first before thinking of another?

    In alt mode you would have a point.

    In robot mode? You just make the legs longer and change faces...not much of a point really.

    I plan to buy two. One Takara, and one Hasbro. Since Hasbro's is gonna be Hot Rod only, I'm hoping Hasbro releases it in magenta colors instead of orange and yellow. That way they'll be more differences than just taller and a different face.

    i'm getting 2 takara versions. at $200+ each,I won't be ripping open the boxes to display one in hotrod mode & the 2nd in rodimus prime mode.

    I highly doubt anyone here is that rich to do that. most will only display one figure & transform him back & forth between hotrod & rodimus prime modes.

    This is a tad off topic, but how tall is he again compared to MP Prime?

    Personally, I want to see if I like one first. Then decide if it's worth having another for evolution mode.

    The toy is 2 different heights in each robot mode. as hotrod has a robot mode & rodimus prime has a robot mode. the robot modes shrink/grow due to waist extensions & possible ankle/shins extensions. at best the toy grows/shrinks about 1 & 1/4 inches.

    in MP Hotrod robot mode,the toy appears to be around 9 & 3/4 inches tall. based off the MP Grimlock comparision pic next to MP Hotrod. MP Grimlock is around 9 & 1/4 inches tall. in the grimlock next to MP Hotrod pic,MP Hotrod is a half a head taller than MP Grimlock.

    In MP Rodimus Prime mode,since the figure gains a inch & 1/4 in robot mode due to extensions in waist & maybe ankles/shins. the MP Rodimus prime robot mode should be around 11 inches tall.

    I am getting both takara and hasbro versions,as I want both hot rod and roddy p.,but I still have to wait for hasbro's,since theres no word of when he will be released,and bbts still hasn't posted it for preorder yet that I know of.I just hope we don't have to wait 6 months or a year to get it,as I have takara's preordered already and will be getting it in 2 months hopefully.

    The only extending that happens is the legs coming down from the waist more. It's maybe 1/2 of an inch increase at the absolute most. He's not going to be anywhere near 11 inches tall in either robot mode.

    we'll see in a few months.

    my solid guess is at least 1 inch height growth/shrink. as the average AEC Leader sized TF's upper thigh is about 1 inch.

    Just one Takara for now. I'll double up on cheaper Rodimus figures (or get different versions) but this one is both so expensive and so large that I won't have space to display more than one right now. Actually I don't even have space to fit the Animated figures that came out on my shelf. I'm sure I'll get a Hasbro version when it comes out. Depending on colors I may end up with 3 total.

    I might be getting two (I have a few on preorder). We'll have to see as it gets closer, I'd like to be able to display both but they're very expensive.
