    Thread title says it all. This is my po' ass way of getting around the sorrow of never owning Henkei Black Rodimus. Dude looks pretty nice imo and will make a perfect stand in as a modern day Wildrider for my modern day Stunticons section.

    I don't think you're a sucker at all for owning this figure. It's a great looking figure reminiscent to the SG Rodimus.

    I decided to try my luck with Tokyo Hunter - Khabarovsk is not too far away from Japan, shipping will be lower and in the whole it cost me cheeper that BBTS. Now I'm waiting for late April. :)

    To note that Yahoo Japan might be another good alternative for this. ;)

    If you mean by getting him through BBTS or just because you pre-ordered him. I pre-ordered him but through bodhar. I think this is an awesome figure

    I'm not a fan of spending 6plus times the amount of retail just to get a low volume import recolor exclusive.

    I'm also not a fan of apllying the color black & grey to every TF toy mold. it has to actually look good on the mold to make sense. IMHO,In the instace of that black+purple animated rodimus it just doesn't look good. it looks worse colored than the original.

    I wasn't a fan of even the Animated Rodimus major toy mold design. because it looked like a caricature based off the the classics 1.0 rodimus deluxe toy mold. the animated rodimus major looked like a monkey wearing alt mode pieces in robot mode.

    I bought 5 animated Rodimus major's at TRU stores to scalp to get profit money to off set the cost of buying a MP Grimlock at full price the same day. I totalled $30 in profits in selling those 5 animated rodimus majors. which made MP Grimlock cost around $30

    I have him preordered from BBTS too and can't wait for him. I love me some black repaints.

    Heheh...I'd laugh and cringe if they released a Black Rodimus as another TRU exclusive before they released Thundercracker.

    I want to say March? I had March/April in my head for him but I could be mistaken.
