    Perfect time for the Roddy's upgrade kit. And much better than paying inflated prices!

    Wonder if they fixed Prime's annoying gimmick.
    He's not bad once you remove those waist springs.

    ^This! But I have 2 of those molds at hand. Might bite if I have the extra moolah. :D 
    Id wait for the Animated Clear "Sons of Cybertron" two-pack for the new Rodimus mould.

    while I'd rather they have gone with the Robot Masters Prime I am a sucker for transparent paint

    Also I love the presentation and I'm a sucker for a nice box

    I don't like the idea of inviting another instance of that Prime mold into my house, but the Rodimus is neato.

    Nice box, and sweet toys. I'm going for the Animated set myself, and I have way too much stuff on preorder, so I will skip on this..but I bet it's going to make alot of people damned happy!

    i'm loving this set. i'm a sucker for the transparent goods as well and love the rody mould. that classics prime is not too bad for display in clear mode. which is why i ordered 2 sets of these :) .

    in anycase, i quote because i dont have ANY experience with that classics prime mould. can you elaborate how shitty it is? i've heard so much that it's shitty and no reasons to back it up. any videos or feedback threads where this mould gets treated?

    Well this is....ouch! Prime's bot mode is ok, but his alt mode sucks!! Roddy looks cool though, but a BIG pass for me on this... I know their clear and all, but im soooooo glad i have Henkei Prime and Hasbro and Henkei version of Hot Rod

    I love that packaging almost as much as I despise that Prime mold. Why that Prime keeps getting the pimp packaging treatment is totally beyond me.

    Looks good enough but don't think I'll be buying. Shame too that is a nice box.

    So they're taking a great, possibly the best Hot Rod Mold, and packaging him with a garbage, possibly the worst OP mold? Why not use the Classics Voyager Prime? The Classics Deluxe is an 's' sandwhich.

    A reviewed that thing on my site below

    2 10 dollar toys, one of which is a piece of TRASH, the other which is, ok, for 60 dollars?! That box better transform into the upgrade kit for Hot Rod or something, transparent paint be damned. Id rather the G1 Prime instead of that jive ass deluxe. But at least it saves me some money, which I might spend on the far superior animated version of this set.

    I take it that they didn't use the Classics Voyager Prime mold because that was the Tokyo Toy Show exclusive figure.
