    Really? Will all of these be available in stores eventually?

    That's pretty cool, I wonder if we can grab them online afterwards

    Huh. Is there anything different about the Rodimus here than there will be in TRU stores?

    Just saw my statement for last year. I bought mp grimlock when he was first posted on tru.com on 8/9/10. Which pretty much means rodimus should be available 1-2 weeks after comic-con weekend on there site. Hopefully I can score one online, my local TRU is notorious for having scalpers on opening & truck day.

    Sounds like it's identical at the show or in stores.

    Curious that they mentioned winebego mode, the package shots we saw didn't include the trailer (right?).

    Will all those ToysRus exclusive toys eventually be available in their stores, or are they SDCC-only exclusive items? I only ask because I like that Lion-O figure and hope he shows up in ToysRus stores.

    I highly doubt they will sell out the figure at the show. But, good to know the date for when to expect TRU to start getting them.

    I guess the same will hold true for Roddy as well? I don't see a link for him.

    So will Rodimus ever be available in brick and mortar stores? Or are we going to have to crash the TRU website storming it to buy Roddy and whoever isn't able to purchase that morning is screwed?

    This is coming a LOT sooner than I was hoping. My wallet still hasn't recuperated from the first waves of DotM.

    I think I'm actually going to get the US Rodimus as well. This will be the first time I've gotten both US and Takara. Except for the absence of the trailer, I think I actually prefer this one to Takaras. I may just plug my Takara one into the winebago and leave him there. Not sure.

    Let's not kid ourselves and underestimate the intelligence of your fans, Hasbro; that's a hot rod, lower case. Surely worry about infringing on another company's trademark doesn't apply to generic terms for cars?

    you noticed that also huh?? I am sure that is a serious typo

    If anybody wants to pick up Rodimus/Hotrod and the Entertainment Earth booth. I dont think that is going to be an issue. The Hasbro Booth is going to be (as always the most sought after booth). I personally am not very impressed with any of the exclusives they have this year. So what I get a Transformers Prime Optimus a little early with a different box???
