    I'll be getting this figure if it's in the 3-pack, as long as said pack is readily available at retail. Personally, I love the toon accurate colors.

    I looked a bit more at the pics today and I guess they are simplified and less flame-y so they fit to the other yellow accents on the front of his hood, which looks like an arrow facing forward and so the flames are just a nod to the classic flame design, but are in line with the overall arrow appearance.

    That is the only logic I can see behind this.

    But what still bugs me is: When looking at some parts, the paint apps don't even actually cover the red plastic, as if it was painted quick and dirty.

    But maybe this is because it is a test shot. If not, this is very suspicious.


    But damn... if this is really a 3 pack which is not THAT expensive, I kinda might wanna have this. I always wanted a Rodimus. At least for 20 years :D

    Yes, the general appearance seems to suggest a cartoon accurate theme. That said, the details look off (as does the plastic). We need more info on this to get a better idea. Hasbro has had some bad repaints though in the past. The RiD car brother Universe repaints are prime examples. Those things were horrendous. So this could be the genuine article.

    Also, the red plastic seems to be in line with the 25th Anniversary reissue Prime. The plastic on that piece appears pink as well.

    guys he looks pink because hes transluscent. In the light, the other two figures don't glow and a tell tale sign of this is the engine mounted in the front. That could mean he might be part of the crystal convoy classics two pack, or more likely cheaper plastic... knock off or otherwise (hasbro isnt perfect)

    No, because there's a big difference between plastic that lets some light through, and completely transparent plastic.

    and we've seen the sons of cybertron set already. it's very, very different from this.

    and it has nothing to do with a cheaper plastic. it's just a different kind of plastic.

    i'll pay $10.00 + shipping from KOtoys.com for that.

    if that IS NOT a knockoff, I'll be shocked

    Agreed. The solid windows are very suggestive of KO's.

    Looks kinda ugly. Glad I already have one of the Classics ones.

    Depending on what else comes in the 3-pack, I might get it anyway.

    Gotta say I agree. I haven't even heard any rumors of a 3 pack of these guys. If so though I'd maybe get it depending on how ol' Galvs and Cyclonus look, Cyclonus is my fave TF afterall (really...he is my fave, no joke). :lol  One thing that does catch me though is that his hands are white (like they're supposed to be). But still, the paint apps scream KO.

    I can understand the incentive for Hasbro to release a show-accurate Rodimus, but was it really necessary to paint over the windows? As far as I remember Hot Rod had transparent windows in the cartoon.

    Still, at least this bodes well for the rumoured Galvatron and Cyclonus repaints. Neither the Universe nor the Henkei versions had show-accurate colours. And if Hasbro can finally get it right this year, I'll gladly fork out whatever they charge for them, painted windows or not.

    Wow, is that what people are charging for him these days? *checks* Holy sh-! And the Henkei version is worth even more! To think I paid just ten euros for him before Protector was announced. I bet you feel like a right plonker, D-Unit. :p
