    What the crap?! Why does he have a Decepticon symbol instead of the SG Autobot symbol the other pics show him with?? I mean sure it’s easy for reprolabels to fix but still

    Why did they get rid of the SG Autobot symbols? That really bums me out.:(

    This is the only release if the mold I am interested in (unless they pull some weird Arcee or Hound out of it), but I am rather displeased with the Decepticon emblem. It makes him seem less like an evil Rodimus and a new character. I love how the moustache resembles Lemmy, however.

    So, is this corrupted Rodimus supposed to be the rival to Primal? It's an inventive way to deal with the previous Matrix bearer, but a bit of a slight against the character.

    Maybe I will get a Liege Maximo Prime Master and implant it into the Matrix. Call him Rodimus Maximo.

    My guess would be the fact that the Shattered Glass Autobot symbol has never been released at regular retail and would likely be confusing to a casual Transformers buyer.

    No SG insignia? Guess this release will be easier to ignore.

    Unfortunate about the symbol, but this is still the release I’m waiting for.

    I'M STILL WAITING ON MY WAVE 1 LEADER PREORDERS! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? :mad: 

    Even though it seems Bigbadtoystore are dragging their feet here I'm still relying on them to put up preorders for this guy too, no way in hell this guy will see the light of day at any store I visit... Prove me wrong Walmart, prove me wrong.

    (Also Decepticon symbols over SG Autobot symbols? Is it to much to ask that Hasbro could of packed in a SG Autobot logo sticker for some people to put over the Con symbol if they are so inclined?)

    It would make everything in my life perfect if I could walk into the store and buy both Rodimus’s at the same time.

    Decepticon Logo? how disappointing.
    I'll hold off buying and hope for a running change or something.

    Yeah, they should have a new Decepticon figure. Not an old Autobot figure repainted with a Decepticon symbol slapped on him.

    I can't wrap my head around the seemingly arbitrary shipments of these waves. Coastal sightings I understand, but a central midwest occurrence when the rest if the country is still having the first wave trickle in is just baffling.

    While everyone's crying about the goddamn symbol, I'm just here happy we've got a rad purple and black Decepticon-ized Hot Rod.

    I'm in the opposite boat, much prefer a proper Decepticon symbol.

    Wave 2? Cool. One step closer to Wave 3 when the real fun starts.
