    At this point I'd be willing to buy a knock off of the inner robot that has some of the lesser good looking parts remolded and the gimmick for power-up mode removed. But then I would need to use reprolabels for the faction symbol and I still hate stickers.

    Butt Windshield?
    They could've at least copied TLK Wave 3 BB's folding panels on it's back avoiding butt flaps.

    I'm not the biggest fan of Machinema's Titans Return. but I think I want someone to make a faceplate head for this guy.

    Just picked this guy up. You can get rid of the windshield butt flap. Just slide the windshield/spoiler piece down an fold up and re-attach to his back.

    Yes the back of the Rodimus head is visible on his back. But a vast improvement IMO.

    Can someone post a pic of the small Rodimus standing next to Classics Prime? Someone has to have both of them!

    This is the best I can do. I tried to have bottoms of feet at the same level.

    The flame stickers on mine are a mess. On the hinge on one side and crooked as heck on the other.

    Keeping in mind that Luke didn't know what the F he was talking about and changed his mind completely later.

    That looks pretty great! Did you paint the boots or just peel the stickers off?

    Just peeled the stickers. The only thing I painted are the fists.

    Oh Hasbro's aware... They just don't care. They rather milk the character out then eventually give us a legit design. They could've done the same thing with that POTP Optimus by just making the Truck a quality Voyager Optimus and the Trailer turning into the G1 battle station and Roller.

    Now that I'd pay $45 for instead of skipping this Leader class wave completely!

    Which is why Hasbro doesn't mind taking gambles in crappy quality.

    I could be considered a ‘geewunner’, and I ain’t dropping a dime on this piece of junk.

    That’s pretty good.
    I dunno if I was just complemented or insulted.
    Nor will I go back and try to figure it’s context.

    I salute you in a well made post.

    He is far from perfect but is a decent official rodimus prime at a reasonable price IMO. Fits in well with my collection.

    Agree. Hasbro doesn’t care about us or the characters. While they realized that we need updated toys, they don’t care how they destroy our beloved characters.
