    Can anyone tell me if the listing on BBTS for C-05 Classics Hot Rodimus is going to be for the henkei re-release? The picture shows the hasbro classics version and i was a little confused (see below). Thanks.

    Yes it will be. Not sure why they brought up the old stock photo they used from way back instead of the Henkei one.

    There was a thread about this a few days ago. It's most likely Henkei. All/most of the Henkei/United stuff BBTS puts up are pictures of the American Hasbro ones.

    Thanks man for the confirmation. It just went back up for preorder (was sold out prev) so I wanted to jump on it if it was the henkei one. Sweet!

    Ebay:
    Classics/Generations/Universe/RtS photos are routinely used in place of proper Henkei/United photos, usually until retailers get newer images. That image has been there for years, and it would be extremely unlikely for it to not be Henkei Rodimus.

    It's the henkei reissue. Hasbro versions never have that C-05 numbering system, that's unique to Japanese figures.

    Its supposed to be out at the end of September. so I'll likely roll down to TRU and get one then. I'd like to have one to replace the RTS rodimus in my protector armor
