    I get that people are upgrading Classics/Henkei Rodimus Prime because he is tiny...but am I alone in thinking that the fansproject design looks like a drunk Ray Charles had designed it with a hammer?

    If there would be a real voyager Rodimus Prime and a Voyager Galvatron, I would finally buy Voyager Henkei Convoy. I would really welcome a real classics Rodimus Prime.
    But as long as this doesn't happen, I'll stick to deluxes...

    yes. you are all alone. so completely, utterly alone in thinking a drunk Ray Charles with a hammer designed it.

    i may not want the FP Protector, but even i, someone who has never made a decent paper airplane, knows that a lot of time and effort went into it.

    FP's accomplishments with the design should not go unnoticed or unappreciated. not even from those that didn't care for it.

    all i can say is that as Vangelus mentioned in the WTF@TFW podcast, they didn't copy or imitate an already marketed design (such as that iGear Bumblebee).

    just say, "Pass," and buy what ya want.

    If Ray Charles was the mortal son of Hephaestus, then yes, I agree with the OP.

    What he said...I was on the fence on it as well, but once i received it and messed with it. The darn thing is giving you an upgrade of your classics hot rod to rodimus prime in car mode...it gives you an armor for your hot rod which is built in the trailer cab, the cab turns into his battle station mode, upgradeable rifle, a hot rollar....the question is what is there not to like? This thing is superb! FTW!

    Protector is a cool idea but i did not care for the look of City commander and do not care for how Protector looks. The hard angular look works for some people but not for all. I am happy with my MP-09.

    I actually like the City commander upgrade set, except for 3things - the "gun" which to me might aswell just have been kibble that you put aside.

    The feet, seeing how much people struggle and strain the plastic trying to get their ultra magnuses in 'em is kind of offputting.

    The head...everything else on him looks great! perfect representation...and then you get a head that looks like it has a black hole in it sucking his face inwards is such a shame...and the upgrade kit to fix it looks even worse.

    On a sidenote: I've allways found it ironic how classics galvatron gets equated with a steaming pile of feces because of his gun and yet fansproject gets praised even though it has the same problem
