    Sidearm?

    Not really a Rodimus, more of a Rodimus accessory.

    $305 or so before shipping. Don't know about the OP's salary/pay rate, but that's about a week's work at minimum wage in Washington State.

    I'm only buying the takara MP Rodimus Prime.

    I already have classics rodimus & cyclonus from a few years ago.

    I'm not interested in the protector armor. as the combined mode won't even reach 6 & 1/4 inches tall.

    I hadn't realized being 6.25" tall was so essential to making a figure truly 'Rodimus'.

    Anyway, on the actual discussion, I don't think you're missing anything other than FP Sidearm, as far as I'm aware. Personally, I'm skipping the MP release and just sticking with FP's upgrade.

    Tigermegatron is very specific about the sizes of the Rods he accepts.

    the classics 1.0 deluxe Rodimus is a extremly short deluxe. it stands 5 $ 1/4 inches from head to toe in robot mode.

    the protector trailer/armor,will only make the deluxe toy grow one inch in height. it'll be a 6 & 1/4 inch extremly small voyager.

    the bulk of the protector trailer/armor goes into the attack firing base.

    I ain't spending $80 plus $8 in shipping fees for the deluxe figure to just gain one inch in height.

    now if hasbro released this. we'd get a voyager or ultra boxed toy for around $21.99 to $26.99. THE HASBRO version would include the deluxe sports car & the trailer/armor.

    Sorry,paying for the 3rd party toy,i'm not getting the most out of my money.

    especially when the titanium 6 inch rodimus prime toy is already 6 & 1/4 inches tall. also the Takara MP Rodimus will be 10 & 3/4 inches tall & seems like the better deal for me.

    We've already received a bunch of rodimus's & rodimus primes around that 6.25 height in robot mode. like energon deluxe rodimus,1.0 rodimus,alternators SDCC Rodimus who is 7 inches tall,titanium 6 inch rodimus.

    I don't mind paying $10 for deluxes,$15 for titanium's 6 inches. $30 for the SDCC alternator.

    It just doesn't make sense for me to pay $80 plus $8 in shipping fees a trailer/armor that only adds a inch to the deluxe toy. IF IT WAS SELLING FOR $25 I'd buy it.

    That picture makes my wallet cry, since I want all three, and now I know exactly how much it'll set me back in the long run. That would pay at least two of my bills. :( 

    Oh, what an expensive hobby this is.
