    HOLY... Is this MTMTE Rodimus I see? Praise be the SxS if this turns out as good as I hope.

    EDIT: Well that made my year, this announce plus being the first post in a thread about my most wanted character getting a figure reveal...

    That..that...don't you tease me, god damn you.

    Edit: SXS. Damn. I don't know how excited I should get. Hasn't their Gears and Blur kind of flopped?

    Agreed... if this looks half as good as that preview looks I will have to give figure of the century to a relatively new and previously underwhelming (to me) 3rd party.

    Accurate alt mode too.
    Easy remold into Getaway if they feel so inclined. (Judging by Ten's figures in MTMTE #40)

    Been wanting a MTMTE Rodimus FOREVERRRRRRRR.

    Awesome! This is something I'd go 3rd Party for even if Hasbro made their own. I hope the head sculpt actually looks like Rodimus. Overclocking was a bit off imo.

    Well, that took long enough.

    I'm not a fan of the current IDW Rodimus design, but I've Always liked Rodimus. Will definitely keep an eye on this.

    But, yeah, SXS. Their Gears wasn't well received and their Blurr looks nice, but is plagued by some gappiness in altmode. Not making any decisions until there have been reviews.

    But considering the current pace this could take a while.

    I probably won't bother with this; I like Protector enough and Rodimus is significant/popular enough of a character to the point where I think Hasbro will do a new Generations toy of him in the next few years.

    Dreams do come true... :cry 

    Judging from their previous releases, it looks like SXS knows how to make some pretty good figures. If this does well, I hope making MTMTE designs will be their "thing" Like Planet X and FOC or Fanstoys and MPs.

    They already are, as a repaint of blackjack. -.- (I hate that so much as it will delay any other official figures of him most likely)

    I was quite happy with SXS's Gears figure. By no means perfect, but quite nice.

    Hopefully we'll see some actually photos of the figure and it'll give us a better idea of what to expect. It would need to be something special to see me replace Protector of Cloud Rodimus in my collection.

    I think I'm gonna buy the Blackjack repaint just so Hot flame can hold him as like an action figure of himself :lol 

    I wonder if SXS will make an upgrade kit for Leader Magnus (like with Blitzwing) now so Hot flame and him match up in style...

    I think the biggest problem with Overclocking is that we were shown a very stylish drawing, which we all looked at and talked about for a long time. Then the renders were shown, and they strayed pretty dramatically from what we had all come to expect based on the original line art. My personal feelings are that the translation of the drawing to the render and on to the final product had lost a ton of the original dynamism, leaving us with a toy that comes of as pretty blocky and static. Seeing these silhouettes of Roddy here is giving me the same feeling, so I'll keep my pants on until I see the actual renders.
