    First. Prime. Then, Ultra Magnus. Now, you. It's a pity you Autobots die so easily, otherwise, I'd have a sense of satisfaction now.

    The one on the chain is from the Generation 1 Galvatron reissue from about 10-12 years back. The gold one in Rodimus' hands is from Beast Wars Neo Big Convoy, and the silver redeco is from Ultra Mammoth, Big Convoy's TCC exclusive redeco.

    I’m still a bit on the fence about this one. Those shoulders certainly are a little off, but I think I can live with it for that “arise” feature. I might check this one out. It must be due in stores sometime soon.

    In the Philly/Willowgrove area, I saw it a few times at Target and only once at Wal-Mart, which is why I should've just hid one somewhere in the store until it went on sale (which it did a months in a half later for $30).

    Either way I'm not paying $40+ for that PotP Rodimus. It's just not that good a figure quality wise.

    I wouldn’t say lazy as much as it had the potential to be better. I have one and it is a fun figure. Wish they could have something better with the backpack though

    I feel like a few small changes would've taken this guy from a cool idea done okay-ish to amazing. Most importantly, fixing the shoulders. Also surely it's not that hard to fold up the panels under the hands (or just rethink that whole component).

    Still, there's a lot to like about him and I'll have to get around to buying one when I can find him cheap enough.

    Missed opportunity from Hasbro in not including a little sound box in Hot Rod that plays The Touch every time you "arise" him into Rodimus Prime.

    Next toyline: Power of the '80s Rock Titans Return Wars! Every figure comes with its own over-the-top '80s rock ballad that plays every time you transform it. Come on Hasbro, you know you want to.

    I feel like the PotP Optimus got almost too much articulation while this one didn't get enough. Like if they had more evenly distributed funding for articulation as well as better molding (to take care of all the really bad looking kibble and what not on Optimus, where as Rodimus has none) both figures could be perfect.

    You mean the kibble on Rodimus, right? Optimus has none, pretty much.

    Sorry, kibble was the wrong word. That's on me. I meant how bad Optimus's cab looks with so much of it just being exposed bot mode parts.

    Blech, let me tell you guys. This figure is incredibly fun but the flame decal stickers on the sides of his cab! Because of the way they extend over the swivel hinge that needs to be opened up mid-transformation they will get crumpled up. I had to trim those bits off to save the rest of the decal.

    The two gun parts on mine are very loose. If only they flipped the shoulders and attached the arms to the black bits, then the shoulders can actually pose very well.
