    I saw a review of the MP09 Rodimus and was wondering what other transformers have swiveling hip kibble?

    EDIT: By hip kibble I mean the type that have half or their entire alt mode rotating at their hips.

    EDIT2: Classics Megatron is an example.

    Masterpiece Prime, although his kibble is individually articulated for each leg.

    I wouldn't classify the "skirts" mp prime has as kibble.....I think Big convoy when I think kibble.

    1) I'm not entirely sure you understand what "kibble" means in this fandom.

    2) Your question still doesn't make much sense.

    MP Rodimus and Prime don't have hip kibble. They have "skirts" as a result of trying to replicate their on-screen designs.

    Classics Megatron doesn't really have hip kibble. His kibble attaches from a hinge to his pelvis, yes, but it winds up hooked onto his back.

    Breacher doesn't have anything I'd call "serious", just a hinged buttflap that easily moves out of the way.

    Hip kibble is more like RoTF DLX Ratchet. MP Rodimus doesn't really have kibble.

    The original Seeker toys have the connector sockets for the wings located at their hips. Now that's hip kibble.

    I don't even know what the OP's definition is. Neither MP Rodimus nor Classics Megs have hip kibble. Rodimus has a skirt flap, but Megs doesn't. Rodimus certainly doesn't have any of his alt-mode hanging off his waist. It's all pretty contradictory.

    The ones that jump to mind immediately are Beast Wars Neo Big Convoy, Energon Mirage and Dreadwing, and Generations Drift and Blurr, Alternators Tracks/Battle Ravage/Swerve, as well as the MP and Alternity Seekers. Those satisfy the criteria of the first Edit point, but don't match the examples at all.

    I believe his definition of kibble is MP Rodimus' collapsed car roof backpack. WfC Prime has a similar condition with his hood being more or less free to spin around his waist.

    Isn't all that stuff connected to Rodimus' torso, and not his waist?

    And then, by that definition, that's waist kibble, not hip kibble.

    That's why I initially thought he was talking about the pivoting panel that covers the front of MP Rodimus' crotch. This is all very confusing.
