    I just got the Battle In Space 2-pack and considered selling off Rodimus as I only wanted Cyclonus to begin with. I kinda like that version of Rodimus though but I only need 1 figure. Which do you think I should get rid of?

    Battle in Space Rodimus is just too dull.

    I guess it kinda depends on whether you're planning on picking up the Protector armour. If you are, I say keep the classics version as the colours match better IMO.
    If you know for sure you'll never pick up the FP kit, then my personal preference is the RTS version.

    I have all 3 (classics 1.0, CaC and Henkei) and I'm keeping them all as I can't choose between Henkei and classics for the Protector armour but I know I definitely won't be using the CaC one for it so he'll be my Hot Rod and either of the other 2 will be my Rodimus Prime.

    Well if you like the new Rodimus, keep him and sell the older one since it's worth ALOT more.

    I voted BiS Rodimus but only because I sold off my Classics Roddy long before the price jump and I'm not paying $50-$75 to get it back. So I guess I'm no help.

    I would keep the original.
    1. Non painted windows
    2. Better colorscheme (imo)
    3. Better paint apps. I do not have the BIS one yet, but have the three pack, and where the engine is painted, there is a crazy amount of overspray behind it near his face.

    But if you don't really care for the character and are indifferent, sell the original since it will breing you a little better coin.

    If you want the Protector armour, keep the original. If you don't, sell it. Plenty of people paying high prices for the Classics Rodimus, you could get some
    Moneysssss :)

    As others have said, keep the classics one if you plan to get protector. Actually, keep both. BiS one can be your Hot Rod when the classics one becomes Rodimus Prime.

    Make a custom mixing the parts you like from the two and sell the remaining off.

    I like the red and yellow of the newest Rodimus more, BUT I hate that he does not have translucent windows and that the contrast of his flames on his chest is hardly there. I wish they made the flames golden like on the Henkei version and bright blue translucent windows, than the new version would be the best version.

    I voted for Classics.

    Keep both. Get Protector. Put armor on Classics Rod*poof*now he's Rodimus Prime. Take BIS Rod and.....wait for it....*poof* Hot Rod.

    Classic Hod Rods value is worth keeping just for this fact alone. BIS Rod was only a tenner anyways. And if you just really dont need the young and old versions of the flamer(play on words people), repaint him into Wildrider.

    Plain and simple, the mold is worth keeping more then one of.

    If you go this route, I offer some advice: for me, the painted windows are the deterrent. You can swap out the canopy, but that pin can be a pain to get out. It can be done though, but just be careful.

    No, keep Classics version because that will go down well with FP's Protector Upgrade.

    You can choose to either keep that RTS Rodimus & display him as Hotrod OR just sell/dispose him in any preferred way you can now think of.

    I'll burn it though. :lol
