    While everyone knows me for my insane huge ACTUAL collection and completest of anything Transformers, going that path also resulted in me giving extra focus to anything and everything of my favorite character of all time, my boy Hot Rod / Rodimus Prime.

    While some recent stuff IS missing post 2012, it's just more due to me not having the time to update the thread with some nicer photos with the newer items added in. I will post them when I get a chance.

    This collection thread is dedicated to Optimus Scourge / Gary Clark. Back in 2010 I did 3 special podcasts called "RodCasts" in which me, Optimus Scourge/Gary, Drew Eiden and TFG1Mike talked about our love for this character and Gary always wanted me to put all my Rodimus stuff in one place and take beautiful photos..... I said one day.... one day. September 28th 2011, Gary passed away and he never got to see the fruits of my labor, and thus this is all dedicated to you man........ I am just glad Masterpiece Rodimus came out and you got to enjoy that toy before you left us all to go to a better place.

    A lot of vintage stuff, boxed AND loose (G1 mixed with some modern this and that)[​IMG]

    More modern stuff like Classics, Henkei, modern PVC releases (Can you find Lucky Draw Primus and 2 SL Rodimus Convoys or the Protector/Shadow Scythers?)

    They are in the pictures in boxed form (Note the 2 boxed Shadow Scythers).

    I am going to do a big 3rd party shoot later. Everything in these photos kinda has a theme

    I can only dream of having a Starscream collection to rival your Rodimus collection. Great stuff there.

    Protoman is actually Batman.

    And also Iron Man. At the same time.

    The millionaire race car driver playboy with a crazy Rodimus Prime collection is merely a guise just to distract us.

    By night, he fights crime in the streets of Montreal wearing a red powered armor suit with flames on it. You can't fool me, Protoman! I know your secret!

    Tony Stark said it himself in Iron Man 1 "Give it some Hot Rod red and yellow for the armor"

    Also...

    *looks at the Press* I am Protoman.
