    Since MMC has gone pretty much all-in on these IDW looks if you're someone who has their other figures I'd personally be apt to wait for their version of this character. They're a proven quantity and what they've done with the IDW looks is pretty noteworthy.

    Definitely picking this up, holy crap. All I need now is a Rung, Riptide, and Whirl and I can finally die happy. Oh, and that rumored Getaway.

    Hell no. Even though I haven't bought SXS Rodimus because I still consider him too big, is still a FAR superior figure than MMC's version. Much more comic-accurate and elegant as a whole, especially since MMC Calidus has awful proportions in robot mode and is really underpainted to boot.

    So how did their Rodimus turn out QC wise?


    Just figured I'd ask since there's no sense picking this gal up if the company doesn't make good product.

    Pretty solid, iirc?

    Color me curious. I'll always have at least a little interest in well-made purple fembots that I can pass on to my daughter one day, even if they aren't G1 Season 1 & 2 material. :)

    It’s weird how she seems to have unnecessary fin articulation on the rotors, much like the downward movement on Roddy’s spoiler. I wonder why they keep doing that.

    I vastly prefer SXS’s Rodimus over MMC’s. By miles and miles.

    I own both.

    This had better not be like Hot Flame--a silhouette tease about 2.5 years in advance, and then the release only gets in gear because MMC is beating them to the punch.

    Here's my #1 ENORMOUS beef with MMC:

    They made a great Whirl. They made a mehhhh okay he'll do Cyclonus. THEY PAINTED THEM NON-MTMTE COLORS.

    OK, fine. But every other figure they released got an Asterisk mode. Where's the correctly-painted Whirl & Cyc as Asterisk modes?

    I ended up getting Whirl for Christmas, and he's great. But I'd still get another one in correct colors and move this one to my Wreckers shelf.

    MMC. THERE IS MONEY TO BE HAD. WHY U DO DIS.
