    Well there is an episode where Rodimus and his Winnebago fell down a mountain separated and reconnected in vehicle mode so....a new trailer could be likely and maybe not integrated into the robot mode.

    Hmm, that's about $182 U.S. Not bad, if they fixed the issues I've heard this figure has.

    So it’s true then. Thanks for sharing. I have a hybrid v1 / v2 that’s had more donor parts and repairs than I care to remember. I wonder if this version will have any improvements.

    Still easily the best Rodimus out there in terms of looks. Might have to pick up a 3rd copy of this guy when this reissue drops off if they really did implement new fixes and tolerances, even though the 2 in my display have had no issues. I love MP09.

    I'm surprised more pre-orders haven't popped up for this. I held off on getting the original and really didn't want the DX9 version.

    Hmmm. When Takara was getting ready to pull the curtain back on Prime v. 3.0 they first milked the MP-10 mold for all it was worth. I wonder if there could be a similar pattern here?

    "Long Life Design" is a bit ironic for a toy with such fundamental design issues.

    Doubt there's any improvements to it. Takara can pocket the revenue from another run of this, but act like it's nothing to do with them when there's complaints.

    Pls someone post reliable Chinese sellers on eBay when this drops ... I really want this as a completionist but with its known issues and the likelihood of a new-mold Rodimus Prime drop over the next few yrs I dnt think I could go over $200 on this guy unfortunately ...

    Oh snap sounds about right for this figure sadly.

    That said, my Hasbro one still stands tall all original parts and everything. I am scared to touch him too much though:(

    It sounds like WJ is going to create MPP09!)

    P.S With the original fixes!
