    So I opened the U.S. Version of Rodimus prime the first thing I wanted to see was how the matrix that was showen in the box would fit in his chest. Well look what I found when I opened his chest.

    The larger matrix could not fit because the modifications needed would ruin the vehicle mode as owners of the takara version said before. You got 2 matrices with it so you have the one he can actually hold. I think thats pretty cool of an addition.

    Don't get me wrong I like having the extra also. But this whole time we were all thinking the bigger one would go in his chest they never showed the chest matrix to scale with anything.

    So you got 2 Matrixes(sp)and your complaning? I didn't see the smaller one that comes in his chest advertised on the box. It did show however, him holding the larger one though.

    Sorry you thought the bigger one would fit but me and other board members with the takara version have pointed out in threads about the hasbro release that the bigger matrix would not go in the chest.

    Do you have both Takara and Hasbro's? Just curious about any possible mold changes between the two.

    Its the same as the takara version except presumably the qc issues of the takara version first release have been remedied.

    A couple people have speculated about it because they were convinced it would not have 2 matrices.

    What kind of peg/handle does Offshoot have? Is it 5mm, in other words, can other bots hold him? Any chance of doing a pictorial review, would love to see the alt mode and such and more of Offshoot himself.
