This is what boredom breeds late at night... It's a full review of the toy, just... theatrical.
Excellent review/video. Very funny and informative. I too have a love/hate relationship with this figure. Little effort on Hasbro's part FTL, but a love for the Rodimus mold FTW. Argh.
i might get one, that way i'd have both of the exclusives from that comic con
I liked the comparison to normal Rodimus in black and white.
I got this guy as a black rodimus figure, that's what it is. Menasor my butt.
Great review. You really did hit the nail on the head with this figure, and touched on all the bad choices that were made in its development. I completely agree, that the biggest thing that kept this figure from selling was its ridiculously unsuitable name. If it had been marketed as "Dark Rodimus," "Nemesis Rodimus," "Zombie Rodimus," or something else along those lines it would have sold much better IMO. Tryign to shoehorn it into Menasor was a terrible idea.
And you make an excellent point, that a black RID Prime or a Skywarp would have been a much more well-received figure. That's spot-on.
I also like the style of your video review. Concise, entertaining, and informative.... can't ask for much more! Keep up the good work, I'll look forward to your future reviews.
