    Yay, mine is arriving at work tomorrow, along with WFC Soundwave! I'll happily put him next to my crystal version.

    Like this one better than the Hasbro one (except for the shiny paint)...I think the animated character's colors are somewhere in between the Hasbro and Takara's paintjobs, but I feel the Takara one is a bit closer, whereas Hasbro seems to be using a redder maroon tone like they've been using for most of their Hot Rod figures...I never really liked that.

    Thanks for the comparison!

    Absolutely great video, Omegus Prime!

    Your negative mark against Rodimus for his spoiler placement in robot mode could actually be avoided as his spoiler can rotate a full 360 degrees on it's placement. Instead of flipping the black piece it's mounted on up; leave it exactly where it goes in car mode but, rotating the spoiler 180 degrees. You'll have to fidget with it a little bit as there is a little nub that plugs into the housing but, it will rotate freely and puts the spoiler in a better position for arm movement and display.

    Aside from that, I am in complete agreement with your review. Awesome figure and the best to come out of Animated, easily.

    Keep up the great work!
