    I want to get Takara's Rodimus Prime/Convoy, But I have heard of the issues others have had with him. Should I bother getting one?

    He's an excellent toy, and is probably my favorite transformer toy to date. Mine is the first release and bar loosening the springs in the feet (as a precaution based on wahat others said) I've suffered none of the horror stories affiliated with this mold. Guess what! Not every single Rodimus released was plagued with errors, and once again a very vocal bunch have tarnished it for everyone. Happy folks tend to keep quiet.

    I say go for it, it's a gorgeous toy in person (more so than the US release) the colours really pop in a way not really captured in pics, and he's genuinly fun to mess around with.

    I'll take wonky shin guards over the gawd-awful Hasbro color scheme. Love mine.

    I have first version of Takara Rodimus. He had a few flaws, and Toysrus exclusive Rodimus also suffered the same flaw. Hopefully, 2nd version releases in September will fix all of this problem.

    I say skip it and get the us version. I mean it is $65 vs. $250 for V2.

    Just ask yourself this:
    - Are you going to ever having it in Winnebago mode?
    - If no to above, what are you doing with the trailer when in Bot mode?
    - What bugs you about the US release that the Tak one is better?

    If it is for the trailer. Just be patient. I am sure we will see some trailer for him later on for like $80 or something.
