Thanks very much to TF饭-阿鲁卡多 (edit: now also on facebook Dean Lee) for these stunning photos
Now, that there is IDW Rodimus.
This looks incredible. SXS really stepped up from their Gears and Blurr toys.
is there a definitive release date?
Gosh that looks so much better than calidus. I saw he comes with two extra faces. Is one of them a smirk? Because that's probably what I'd use for him
I have no official interest in this character and yet feel compelled to buy both Hot Flame and Calidus.
Why do you do this to me?
maybe if sxs does a lostlight/shattered glass recolor, i might get this...
For those of us who are casual and not into "completing" collections, this happens all too often. Someone'll announce a toy, we don't really care about the character so we're like "nah, not really interested but I'll do some window shopping". But then production sample photos come out and we're like "oh no he's hot".
Yep pretty much spot on dude. I don't follow idw comics but I got calidus anyways.
And right after my previous post, I went through the pics Cheem posted again and now I have hot flame on preorder. DAMMIT
To think this project seemed dead for the longest time, and now we're getting coloured product images. Just shows you what can happen with time, eh?
I'm really torn between these 2 guys. In bot mode, this one is much better with the exception of the hips. Calidus gives a much better alt mode though, which makes it a more cohesive figure.
The bot mode of this guy is just stunning! Wow.
Hmmm. I *really* like the proportions of SXS' Rodimus.
But I'm not a fan with the muted/darker colors, the bicep and hand colors and the face looks like it could have used a tweak or two. Also don't like the silver/grey balls/upper thigh area.
Man that's a crazy hot looking bot, I like that the exhaust blasters rotate.
He's a bit shorter than Calidus, meaning he'll be a little shorter than Generations Springer. Perfect.
wow, this looked better than Caldigus now.
Yeeeaahh.. I just bought a ticket for the hype-train. I need this like.. right now.
Heck yes! I am so glad that I passed on Calidus. I would double dip if this gets repainted in Lost Light colors.
Still getting this as my MTMTE #1 Rodimus, with Calidus Asterisk being Lost Light #1 Rodimus.
Is there any images that show scale - such as with the previous SXS releases ?
I do wish they'd used the hands like Overclocking has that open up, they were not perfect as the still had a 5mm sliot in them that prevented larger thing holding well - but it at least provided the option to hold something he otherwise would be unable too - this one looks like he has hands that can't hold anything but his own accessories; which is a shame as that slightly dents his play value for me.
I'd likely still buy it though, especially if it's as cheap as the others got.
