Unless you're a die hard roddy fan, Henkei version seems a lot more interesting.
Trailbreaker77
I wonder what this would look like in the FP Protector Armor?
DPrime
Looks nice, but geez... give this mold a rest already.

Or at least a new headsculpt and hands or something.
Stepper
A vampire face for Rodimus,white face.
aprim
must have that!
GrimlockAutobot
Can someone please mirror the images?

I can't view that website at work.

I like it. Can't wait to see warpath.
PrimusVsUnicron
why is the middle of his spoiler red and not yellow?
MidnightBliss
Really? Another Roddy? Is he that effin' popular?

Because it's meant to be Rodimus CONVOY rather than Hot Rodimus.

*eye roll*

Mirrored for easy reference..

Probably weird. That red looks way darker than previous versions.
Stepper
I still prefer Henkei version
Big Dawg
I like the two tone red-burgandy it's got going (although the flames look weird against it, almost cell-shaded). Would probably look cooler with chrome yellow spoiler and headlights
Josh
ooh. i like that

not enough to buy it but

thats nice :3
Auto Morph
Yeah, it looks nice, but I can't justify owning a fifth deco of this mold. Unless I see it cheap of course. I'll buy anything if it's cheap enough.

It just looks like the first US one. I can barely tell what they did different to it?

How about we get a new mold of this character. This mold is very outdated.
PoweredConvoy
Did they retool the figure, what is up with his engine and the part that sticks out?

Darker red, different flames on the side, orange chest with different flames, dark maroon head piece with white center instead of yellow crests, white face instead of silver, blue windows instead of purple, white hands instead of black, black shins instead of maroon with black paint, orange and yellow cuffs, yellow and maroon spoiler instead of orange, different shade of orange, different shade of red. Nothing is the same except perhaps the tires.

I think the Lucky Draw Sentinal Prime is more interesting on that Takara page.
harrismonkey
I wish they'd throw this mold out and start over. The head especially is terrible.

He didn't look great when he first came out. Next to the recent figures like Kup, and Wreck-gar he really looks half assed.

The Takara version looks to be a much more magenta-ish red, versus the brownish maroon of the Hasbro version. Assuming the pics are accurate.

Rodimus looks all right. I'm actually not digging the two-tone thing; I like the idea of it, but it seems weirdly placed and just looks cluttered to me (well, in car mode; robot mode looks fine). I'm also pretty tired of this mold... holy cow, this will be my ELEVENTH version of it. Ah well.

Of all those images, the ones that have me most excited are G2 Megatron and Wipeout. Megatron REALLY captures the feel of Hero Megatron, and I think I've always been more fond of that deluxe Megatron mold than most people are. And Wipeout is fun just for being a Windcharger repaint, and being based on such an obscure character. I feel like now with him, we really need a long-overdue repaint of Energon Scorponok in G1 colors.
Alteron_Sheng
Oooooooooooooooo I like that color *looks at her Rodimus collection* Yup. Totally have space for him^^
As for the question of 'is he that popular'... well I'm a Rodi fan so I'm the wrong one to ask, but given that he keeps showing up I'd say he's at least decently popular^_^
ediblesteak
it's nice to see a repaint on this mold to match his g1 paint scheme, but

meh, I'll stick to my classics Roddy.

there's no real need or want to pick this guy up.

I think that might actually look pretty cool. The spoiler colour may ruin it though
Ruination04
Looks kick ass but why do it? He doesn't look like Rodimus Prime, he looks like Hot Rod.
cheapdate
It'll be interesting to see how that new engine fits with the Protector chestplate.
SouthtownKid
I like it and as a big Rodimus fan, will probably pick it up.

The engine is left exposed; there shouldn't be any conflict.

I was thinking more abut how much better it will look as it's bigger and won't appear as recessed while also thinking about it's fit.
jourdo
I LOVE that version. I'm not usually one for the United stuff, but that is on my list.

True. What is going on with his engine and the part that sticks out?
If it had a hole in it I would think it would be for a gun or target master.
I wonder if it is to stop people from attaching FansProject Protector Armor.
If this is the case, I guess Takara dose not want as many sales on there over priced figures.

I wish. I'd love for that to be the case.
Quixote_Prime
Somehow my hopes on that G2 Megs have now been dashed.

WP: no thanks.

Rodimus: sure, why not?

Wipe Out: Marvel-only insanely minor character pared with nearly identical US Windy. Hrm.

Thunderwing! Those shades are perfect!
ORIO
Thunderwing is looking sharp with that black paint.

I dig Rodimus too. Going to have to see how that mold looks in the Protector armor first though.

Also, Wipeout is tempting!
Tiller
Why use this mold again? How many people aren't happy with classics, henkei, BiS or the SoC sets?
charsdc2
If you're talking about being G1 accurate, this United figure is the real deal. The Henkei colors are more vibrant along w/ the gold foil wing! My other figures I love are Windcharger and Wipeout, they look amazing! Might have to order some!
BlueAngel_Bolt
Had the Windcharger and Wipeout figures on preorder for awhile now, this has reinforced my choice.
heirofthedog
That warpath looks way too purpley red for my liking (especially in the secondary "point" pics below the main two)
DJW107PRIME
Now thats a rodimus.
twiztidRodimus
I'm not getting the Rodimus as I JUST got my classics with Protector, but the Warpath looks great
Cloudraker
Alright!

Liking Wipe out and G2 Megs more and more.

Maybe Rodimus retooled engine can hold a Targetmaster/Minicon?
Cadbane
Henkel Rodimus was reissued not long ago, why a new Rod? I don't want to spend another 30ish for just a repaint.
