    I've been seriously considering on getting this thing but my problem is the only rodimus mold i own is the battle in space. I've seen that reprolables has an up grade kit that is supposed to integrate the two better but should i just pre order henkie rodimus from tfsource as well as get the protector armor or just pick up the reprolables and trailor. I could afford either way but what is the best way to get the best result?

    Best result would be to use the Henkei. The Reprolabels help if you're not too discerning, but there's till things like mismatched wheel colours and paint apps to deal with.

    If you're using the armor then don't bother with a sticker set and get the Henkei. The Reprolabel set looks amazing on the Rodimus mold, but the best parts of it (the chest flames) will be covered by the armor.

    Yeah..I'd really try and get my hands on the Henkei version if I were you. The BiS one is just terrible all around.

    If you have the extra scratch, then get the Henkei. It will look a 100x better then the RTS Roddy will.

    BiS looks like crap with the armor. Best fit would be the Classics one. Henkei second best.

    I would say Classics for the armor and Henkei for out of armor. I like the Henkei factory paint job better than the Classics and both are FAR superior to BIS. The only thing with the Protector armor is that it covers up so much of Hot Rod. And if you get the Henkei one, you'll essentially need the Sidearm upgrade so that you can have the chrome spoiler add ons to match otherwise it'll look off.

    Since no one has mentioned it, Henkei Rodimus will be re-issued in a couple of months. Wait for that instead of getting it now at premium prices.

    This. I have the Classics Rodimus and Man he looks Great in his FP Armor. The color of the Protector set matches best with the Classics Version. Depending on cost I would get a Classics but I dont know what the cost of he is now. It maybe cheaper than a Henkei or the same price.

    I have a Classic Rodimus I'm want to get rid of. You can have it for 20 + shipping!

    Currently I use the BIS Roddy and it looks really goofy. I think I am going to try to pre-order the Henkei Rodimus and just have the BIS as a stand alone.
