    Rakuten have updated their pre-order page with official images.

    UPDATE:

    New image from Otacute showcasing the various features and gimmicks.

    - Matrix compartment
    - Visor
    - Hot Rod to Rodimus Prime face change
    - Buzzsaw
    - Welding torch
    - "Arise Rodimus Prime" pose with matrix
    - Kneeling pose from "The Burden Hardest to Bear"
    - Rodimus Prime's rifle splits into Hot Rod's pistols

    Only things missing now are the fishing rod and Firebolt.

    If he can be both Hot Rod and Rodimus Prime, I'd need two of them!
    But shouldn't Hot Rod look different in robot mode than Rodimus does? His G1 figure suggests so.

    ...but there will be some differences.

    - Face rotates to change
    - Rodimus becomes taller by pulling out the legs from the hips and possibly the knees
    - Spoiler tips move inward to appear higher up the back

    I've seen that pic of Rodimus manning his trailer's cannon in someone's sig or avatar here, but the others are new to me.

    February can't get here quickly enough.

    So what's the difference between Hot Rod and Rodimus Prime modes, because I ain't seeing it.

    I was about to ask the same damn thing. I put the two images next to each other and they don't look any different other than them sticking a big ass gun in his hand.

    The face is the obvious. But Rodimus Prime is a bit taller, by shifting his hip joints lower, and maybe extending his knees or his ankles out further. And the spoiler fin position changes between robot modes, higher for Rodimus Prime.

    Subtle things, but he didn't change much in the animation, either. And it's physically impossible for the toy to grow like he does in the movie, so the minor height shift will have to do.

    There's a slight extension at the hips for Prime (you'll noticed a bit more thigh in the pics) and the face changes.

    I also think there is a difference in the shoulders (they can move up and down) but I havent seen anything officially showing that as a difference.

    Worth the wait and the price! Especially with two modes and the bot mode differences. Hope he comes with a matrix and a place to store it and his rifle.
