    I've been looking around, and cant find any info myself, and everyone here seems to know everything, so thought i'd ask. :) 

    When will it be out, or around when will it be out? Before Christmas? Preorder soon for beginning of next year?

    Anyone know what it will/might cost? around $50 or more?

    -Thanks in advance

    I sure hope it's cheap, because I know I will be getting it.

    I'm just gonna take a shot in the dark and guess it'll be out in early Spring 2010 with a $50-60 pricetag.
    Been looking forward to this guy ever since that original teaser!

    $50!? I wish!

    The City Commander will cost me around £80, so I imagine the Protector kit will be the same and I'd therefore say around $80 too.

    Well, if you think about the size of Rodimus, its a pretty small 'trailer' thingy in vehicle mode, so I can't say it'd be any higher than city commander. Not saying it will be cheap though.

    If City Commander was around $70-$80 (or $90 with the add on weapons) Then expect Protector to be in the $50-$60 range because it's for a deluxe-sized figure rather than a voyager.

    I too can't wait for this set to come out!!

    So you don't think I need to worry about it coming out by the end of this year...?

    If the goddamn Fansproject classics Prime trailer is $80 the Protector set is bound to be expensive. Hopefully it comes out around spring, there's already way too much to get by the end of the year

    agreed, i'd say cheaper than city commander due to its size. i wonder how tall hot rod will be after the add-on since he is one of the smallest classics/henkei figures...

    Roughly Voyager-sized.

    Doubtful that it'll cost quite as much as City Commander or G3, because, as stated earlier, it's quite a bit smaller than either.

    I'd say based on this picture, not too much taller, if it even does get taller.

    I don't think it will be as low as $60...but I'd love to be wrong! I picked up a Henkei Hot Rod recently, and I still have my Classics Rodimus. I'll make the Hasbro one into Rodimus Prime and display the Henkei as Hot Rod. I'm really excited for this set.

    Probably when that drawing was made.

    And you can see the leg extensions in that pic, probably giving him an extra inch or so in height. Also depends on if he has a new, bigger head, which it looks like he does.

    Looks like a "helmet" sort of deal on the head.
    The legs are getting an extra inch or so i think.
    Should make him slightly taller than classics prime, without the trailer of course.
