    Is that a stand at the bottom of the second image? Neato. If this thing is around 50 bucks (< :lol ) when it hits the states I'm definitely picking it up, with or without the trailer.

    He uses it in the 86 movie when Daniel tells him that there's a hole in the approaching Autobot shuttle.

    I just don't like it. Something looks off. it'll have to be the US version if I get this.

    That is 100% Epic Win!

    I love the "matrix" inspired display stand...it looks like that finger in the picture is pushing the autobot logo so are we going to have some sound on this thing? Would love it if it was Primes voice saying "Arise Rodimus Prime"

    I really hope he comes with that stand at the bottom,but I also hope it ain't a repeat of the sounds/phrases used with Primes stand a few years back here in the US.But gorgeous all around on this,glad I have him preordered.

    Still impressive overall. A few minor problems like the "slant" of the car's front end is funky looking due to the bottom of the car curving upwards for no reason...

    But WTF is up with his hands??? They just look horrible. Absolutely horrible...

    wow,this MP Takara Rodimus looks so awesome. it looks like the best MP TF toy ever.

    I guess we'll never see pics of the rodimus prime cab mode detached from the trailer. i'm kinda curious to see what the back part of the cab looks like.

    I don't like him as much as I would like :(  The Hot Rod-to-Rodimus change are minimal at best in robot mode, a different face and about 0.5cm taller. Also it would have looked better if the window could rotate 180° so to not stick out from the waist when you look from the front (and the red part with the headlight are in the way too...).

    And I really don't like the trailer, a big square box thats will serve no purpose and will take space on the shelve, too bad since I was hoping to get the Takara version to have enough point to get the display stand, but if Hasbro release it wih no trailer, I will get it instead.
