    I don't have many of the incarnations of Rodimus but I'm wondering which one of these is THE rodimus prime in your collection?

    The only Rodimus/Hot Rod I own is Animated.

    Masterpiece. I have a reissue G1 Rodimus, Energon, and Titanium, but really MP Rodimus is unfathomably the best representation. And I'm talking about Rodimus Prime, not Hot Rod. Classics Hot Rod fills that slot.

    lol - I pretty much own every mold done for the guy despite my complete hatred for his Skywalker whine. I just like the design.

    To more appropriately answer the direct question I'd have to choose one and I think my favorite is the FP upgrade. If I was to go even further and invalidate that for its unofficial-ness (I made that up, hyuk) I'd say MP.

    I used to have the reissue Rodimus Prime and Energon Rodimus. Both were cool.

    I have the Classics version with the FansProject armor upgrade, he's the coolest Rodimus Prime in my opinion and doesn't have the QC issues of MP-Rodimus.

    G1, Classics, Titanium and Energon. Would love to get the Fansproject upgrade and Masterpiece but ££££ are required!

    Of those choices I only have the Alternator and Titanium. The Energon figure is my preference.

    Energon Rodimus does it for me. Perfect incarnation.

    I can't vote because Choro-Q Rodimus isn't on the list. :(

    I own G1 Rodimus Prime, Titanium Rodimus Prime, and FansProject Protector.

    Protector easily wins out as THE Rodimus Prime in my collection. I already liked Classics Hot Rod, this just made him better. He fits into the whole Classics style--updated G1--and fits in great with the Classics/Universe/Generations lines.

    Henkei Hot Rod with FP Protector armor is my Rodimus. I was considering getting the Masterpiece but scale wise he doesn't really work with any of my displays and at £130 I'm not prepared to risk getting one with bad QC.

    As I do not yet own MP Rodimus, Protector is the Rodimus of my collection....Even if I did own MP, I'm almost 90% certain that Protector would keep his role, and my MP would stand as MP Hot Rod. Protector is just more Rodimusy to me than MP Rodimus. I do not care for any vision of Rodimus that includes bags under his eyes. I understand that Rodimus was a worrier by nature, but c'mon...when it came down to the wire, and he was pushed into a corner, the dude was a warrior, and not to be trifled with.
    I'm not trying to compare the quality of either toy...I'm just saying that I want my Rodimus to be very agressive looking, and I want my Hot Rod to look sleek and new.
    Until I aquire MP Rodimus(or his eventual US release) to fill the Hot Rod spot, I display Animated Rodimus. I think it would be very cool to see what it would look like if FP were to design Protector armor for TFA Rodimus. I'm not saying they should, or they ever would...I'm just saying in concept it could be very visually appealing.

    My favorite Roddy by far is Shattered Glass because that slag licker will always be a bad guy to me:)  However the question is which "Rodimus Prime" so I voted G1. Though I blamed him as a kid for Ops death, I always loved the toy and would marvel at that awesome face sculpt. Plus the trailer/gun emplacement stands up to the test of time, a very nice accessory.

    I only have the Classics Mold, and the Animated Mold, and I prefer the Animated Mold by a long shot. So much more character, articulation, and just a cleaner look to him. As well as the paint.

    I know I'm comparing him to the BiS Rodimus, but still. Maybe if I had Protector things would be different, but at this point I feel better about spending 90 dollars on a fully transformable Voyager sized figure, rather than something that's just a set of armor.

    But I digress, I love the Rodimus Minor mold.

    MP Rodimus is fantastic IMO. The transformation is tricky, but it's such a great representation of the character.
