    Would anybody else be interested in this? I hope someone like iGear downsizes the MP-09 mold so that we can have a Hot Rod in scale with the NEW MP-10 Optimus. He should be a little bigger than Sideswipe, right? I know he's scaled right in his Rodimus Prime mode, but Hot Rod shouldn't be the same size as Optimus.

    If you transform Hot Rod correctly he shrinks a little bit and I think that, that's fine. I think he should be talker than others in the team but shorter than Optimus, when he's Hot Rod.

    Considering we're talking perhaps a cm here or there, that's not enough reason for me to buy a fig at third party prices.

    Just my opinion.

    Damn title :(  I thought there was one in the works, but yeah I'd want one but not as a scaled down version of MP-09.

    Im fine with Mp09. yes he's not the correct size relatively but few of my favorite figs are. City Commander looks stupid next to almost everyone....

    Yes, but city commander is a classics ultra magnus where as the MP line is being made to have a corresponding scale botwize.

    I just got the masterpiece and i was really disappointed by it.

    I'd rather takara just try again in the smaller scale as opposed to a third party

    Agreed. I think MP-09 works fine as Rodimus Prime, but I will take a second, smaller version as Hot Rod.

    Also, I love third party stuff as much as anyone else who posts in this section ... but third party Masterpieces are not something I'm interested in while Takara/Hasbro are seemingly breathing new life into the line. Seems like a potential waste of time and development costs, like that Soundwave Fans Toys was doing.
