    Before Blurr and Rodimus, I think they did upgrade kits and add-ons like weapons etc

    No they had one other figure: SXS-R01 - Continuously Variable. I think the review on that one is not favorable.

    Oh right, I forgot about their Gears. Yeah I don’t think it was that good based on others comments.
    But Blurr was an improvement and Rody looks even better. An upward trend in design and quality is what you want.

    I want to hear reviews from people who have this and Calidus. If this turns out to be better, I'll be selling my Calidus. I have the LL version anyways, so ...

    I skipped Calidus because of the issues that I had with it, and I've pre-ordered this guy.

    I'm happy with my Calidus, but I missed out on the Lost Light version. I'm hoping this guy will be released in those colors sometime down the line.

    Second me for the Lost Light colors for this one. I think I'll be getting rid of Calidus once I get this. Though I like Calidus enough to want the SG version so there's that...
    But as far as MTMTE & LL Rodders goes, this is the best looking IMO. I can't wait!

    I think the photo is misleading. The pipes come to a point in the middle and the change in angle combined with the lighting causes odd shadows that make them look misaligned. The big photo set a couple of pages back shows them more clearly.

    Edit: Then again, maybe not. The pipes on the left leg do seem to have a bit of a gap.

    He's being shipped on October 9th to TFS Express in the UK according to their facebook page, so it shouldn't be too long now.

    He looks fantastic.

    Smidge smaller than MMC’s one, and he actually has a neck and a good range of head movement.

    I can see the appeal. The head and chest look great. But those hip joints just look like Revoltech joints and that transformation looks like a mess compared to Calidus.

    I like Hot Flame's bot mode but then I prefer Calidus' alt mode. Hmm.
