    is the ugrade set really worth the 82$ price tag.
    just for the set even without the figure.

    i have a classics rodimus figure which i got during the summer for the amazing price of 15$ and i love it
    but this armor, it looks fricking amazing!

    im just a college student with not too much cash but just enough for the set and i want this set really badly.
    but im wondering, is it really worth that much money?

    iv posted about this, but now iv got the money and im not too sure right now.
    so im doing a poll


    UPDATE!!!
    HE IS OFFICIALLY ORDERED! BBTS!

    I'd say yes. It feels very high quality, and does a lot to enhance the figure.

    I hate the way Rodimus' arms hang off the back :( 

    Saying that though, I still really really really want him. It's just a lot of money I can't justify right now.

    If there is something that you want and have the money for it...that you won't be struggling later....then get it. Protector is a fantastic piece and worth every penny.

    If you look at the Alternators Rodimus they do the exact same thing..

    HELL YEAH! Not only is this a rad upgrade in of itself, but it's definately a cheaper (and durable) alternative to MP Hot Rod/Rodimus.

    Yes, if you want it get it. What's worse, forgoing whatever you would spend the money on now or paying through the nose down the line when you decide you want one?

    Well, that really has nothing to do with my opinion on the toy. I just really dislike that they're like that.
    I do understand it's probably the best they could do, and I appreciate that. I still really want him, from the front he looks incredible.

    I don't really like it (I never brought it) but if your interested in purchasing it, BUY IT NOW!! Otherwise, you'll start a thread next year asking "Is Protector worth 200 dollars?"

    Honestly, it's not my fav. Fansproject item, but it's grown on me. If the original oridmus head didn't show under the faceplate, I think it'd be a whole lot more pleasing, but that's more of a personal nitpick than anything.

    Another gripe I have is that the action base HAS to be around to do anything with the pieces when he's in car mode... I wish that the parts that help form bot mode attached to his standalone car mode to make a neat "drone" of sorts or something. But, again, that's kinda' a nitpick.

    Honestly, it's an alright toy, and it's nice to have an upgrade for Classics Rodimus, but it's just not that "whoa" that FP produces with other upgrades.

    Get it! It's the bomb. Rodimus Roller is an awesome little addition too.

    ...Oh, and don't forget Sidearm!

    Emphatically yes. Buy it soon, or start the "Official Fansproject Protector Demand Thread" in a year or two.

    Same here. I'd been on the fence about buying Protector or selling my Classics Rodimus when it came out up until I saw the full colored production pics. I'm so glad I got my set from the great guys at Captured Prey the day my federal refund came in. Well worth getting it and Sidearm together. With the BiS Rodimus, you can have two very different looking, but still very updated versions of both iterations of Hot Rod/Rodimus on your shelf. I only wish I hadn't skipped out on the damned Magnus/Skywarp packs when they were at Target back in the day and as a result, skipped out on City Commander. If I knew then what I know now.... I'd probably have every single thing FP has put out....possibly in multiples.

    My advise to you is, if you got the dough and you won't be struggling afterwards, get it. It's definitely worth it, very nice addition to Hot Rod, but if you think it's going to affect you financially afterwards then don't get it. Set your priorities first and then come back and see if you are able to get it.

    If its by FansProject, then you should own one upon release.

    Or you'll have to deal with all your inner bi#ching when these gets sold out eventually.

    You'll kick yourself to death for not owning one right from the start. :lol

    Damnit... I was gonna make a poll thread for the exact same reason. Except my lady said she was going to get it for me and I was going to use the thread as leverage...

    It is a great add on kit. Definitely get it now while it is "cheap". You can get Sidearm at a later time...

    Oh TJ Duckett, you can slide Rodimus' faceplate down a bit to cover his face a little better.
