    I'm not sure which one to get and I have money for one only, so which one would you recommend more?

    Well thats tough. I would say Grimlock is a better figure but i would not expect to find him in stores so you would have to go to the secondary market and deal with mark ups. Rodimus i do not think will be hard to find (one of my local tru had 7 on the shelf) and is only $60.

    I say Grimlock. You have time to save for Rodimus, he just started showing up.

    Grimlock all the way, much better figure. And I'm not even a Grimlock fan

    I'd get Rodimus right now cause he's the cheapest option, but Grimlock is waaaay better.

    Grimlock is far superior than the supposed "fixed" Hasbro Roddy. If you want a MP Rodimus, I'd say go for the second run of the Takara version, if you're willing to shell out a couple extra bucks.

    I have the Takara Grimlock but I would buy Hasbro Grimlock if i didn't. I think both figures are great. I would proberly get Rodimus if was in your situation and save up for Grimlock as i'm sure he will be in TRU for a few months time with Rodimus Prime its hard to call as he may end up being as rare as Grimlock was when he was originally released. TRU are only getting between 4 and 6 figures and not in all stores mostly the bigger ones, but most also have at least 20 to 30 Grimlocks. It looks like TRU UK got overstock Grimmys from the US and now cannot shift them.

    Buy Rodimus, go the B/S/T and trade it for Grimlock. Saw a person have like 3 Rodimus' and traded them for Grimlock/Optimus and Starscream.

    Whilst Grimlock feels like a more complete toy..... if you intend to get both in the longer term, i think Unitedbot may have provided the most informed answer.


    ....And it's not just the lack of trailer, MP Rodimus is an impressive piece of engineering.....in someways,but it also has a lot of little 'niggles' to it that Grimlock does not really have.

    Depends on if you want the better toy or better display figure.

    MP Grimlock is the better toy, he is well built and I have no problems letting my 6 yr old son play with him. MP Roddy is a different story. Although I just got him last week, he 'feels' fragile and I just don't think he will stand up to being transformed over and over again.

    With that said, MP Roddy is the better display figure. I have mine on the shelf holding up the matrix like the 86 movie and he looks great. MP Grimlock looks good on the shelf too, but he plays 3 fiddle to MP OP and MP Roddy.

    Grimlock Grimlock Grimlock 1000x Grimlock

    Grimlock is by far my favorite masterpiece. Rodimus is just too fiddly and frustrating looking from all the small problems it has.
