    I can't decide on which MP I should save up for, price is not really a matter but which one is better and less easy to break, I'm willing to wait for however long it takes for either one to be released, and transformation difficulty isn't a bad thing, I just can't decide.

    I would say Roddy. Not saying its a better figure, but it will probably be easier for you to find and acquire at this time, considering how spotty distribution of Grimlock was.

    Isnt Grimlock out here in the UK? And I'd vote him because hes not a fragile sounding as Rodimus is. But I dont have Rodimus.

    Grimlock is the only one I have, but WOW that figure is amazing. I still can't believe its been made. If this had come out in the 80's/90's I would have been THE happiest kid alive.

    Get both if money isn't an issue. I think they are both amazing. The negatives on Rodimus are being blown WAY out of proportion.

    well, if you want us telling you, start by ellaborating first :) 
    why do you like Rodimus, and why do you like Grimlock? Do you like the characters, or the toys themsleves?
    Or the other way around: is there anything keeping you from getting either of them over the other one?
    Also, you have probably seen a lot of galleries, what do you think?

    Go for Grimlock. Roddy has many QC issues. Plus a dinosaur death machine is much cooler than a space campervan.

    I own both,

    If sturdiness is your main selling point, get Grimlock.
    Better wise, I think I enjoy Roddy more to play with and because his a quad changer and a Trailer to mess with.

    Grimlock. They're both awesome, but Grimlock's a bit cheaper and you won't be left with a trailer that just sits there taking up space like with MP-9's left over camper trailer (though at least it still forms the battle station).

    I voted Grimlock but i want to say that i think Rodimus is the better looking figure overall when you specify which is harder to break it makes it an easy choice. Rodimus is awesome but fragile.

    I'd choose Protector over Grimlock, but not MP Rodimus.

    Grimlock because he's cheaper and if you display him with your "Classics" or even you g1 figures, he's actually in-scale with them (cartoon wise anyway)

    This - that Rodimus is nothing short of glorious. Just take you're time with it - excessive force is not necessary ;)

    Grimlock.

    If you can live w/o the trailer, Hasbro will (probably) pick up Takara's mess.

    Grimlock. Rodimus is a pussy.

    Both toys are very good but Rodimus is weak and must be handled carefully.
