    Is he any good? I need a Roddy for my classics shelf( don't care that much for classics Roddy). He looks good in pics I've seen of him, but just to be sure.

    Thanks in advance.

    Isn't he the same mold as Mirage?
    So, I guess if you like Mirage you'll like him

    Yes, he's the same mould as Alt. Mirage, except with a different head, and as such he's one of the better moulds (arguably) of the Alternators line.

    Alt. Rodimus is Voyager sized(ish), so he'd be a bit over-sized for displaying with Classics in my opinion.

    The thing is, I do have Classics (Henkei to be more specific) Rodimus. And I personally think it was a waste buying him.

    I'd say wait until Fansproject releases the Classics Rodimus upgrade before passing final judgement on it.

    As for Alternators Rodimus, I prefer the Kissplay version myself. White racing stripes plus fishing pole that transforms into a forearm blaster? WIN.

    Thing is, from what we've seen so far of the Protector set, It'll make Classics Rodimus Voyager(ish) sized, just like alternators Rodimus.

    See, I think the KP version just looks like Mirage in red rather than blue, while the flames make the SDCC one look more distinct. Besides, what's the point of a single forearm blaster given that Hot Rod should have two?

    The mold is awesome, I have all 4 versions of it. I prefer KP Rodimus over the Alt version but the Kiss Play version can get a little pricey. If you do decide to get Alt Roddy and plan on opening him any way I would suggest gettin one that's already open, there were quite a few I read about on here that had a problem with the doors being broken. I got MISB only to find that mine was buggered up. as I recall it wasn't a wide spread problem but enough that if you were gonna open him anyway I'd play it safe.

    Oh yea you can send that Henkei Roddy to me it you want lol

    What you say is distinct, I say looks tacky. :lol 

    I have both versions and while the flames is more G1, the gold on red is just blech. If they went with yellow or orange on red it would've looked far better.

    As for the fishing pole blaster, I'd take one over none any day.

    Thing is, if you already have a strong intention to buy alt roddy, then just pull the trigger.

    One of the best Alternators, IMO. Definitely worth getting.
