    Because the shattered glass universe is very appealing to some collectors.

    And repaints are awesome!

    Because it's kind of a totally different character...

    Yeah, it's the same molds and everything, but it's a limited run product (both SG Rodimus and the Scyther armor) and a lot of people are going to want this in their collection.

    I can't afford one right now, but someday I hope I have the opportunity to purchase a SG Rodimus to go along with the Scyther armor. Until then, I hope the freebie club figure will go well with it.

    No clue. Black Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime = no one in my book. I'll stick to my soon-to-be Henkei Rodimus + Protector.

    Pretty much everything you see here:
    1. I loveloveLOVE the campiness of mirror universe stuff, so anything SG is golden. (I still twitch when I remember the BotCon customization class SG Nightbeat and Thunderclash I don't have.)

    2. I dig the hell out of Rodimus Prime, so this was a shoo-in for me.

    3. FP can apparently do no wrong.

    4. I already have SG Rodimus, which definitely helps.

    5. And yes, I can. :D
