    However his Boxart gives his Arms and legs articulated look. It makes me wish they were

    im thinking of getting some junker Hot Rods and Rodimuses and bashing together a better G1 Rodimus. Thoughts?

    Nice idea. If you removed the head, there's a Shapeways Titanmaster connector that you could trim down and fit inside the collar allowing you to use the Rodimus Titanmaster which would give you neck articulation and allow you to remove the Titanmaster in vehicle mode, thereby not hindering the transformation.

    If I still had my old G1 Rodimus Prime, I'd have tried the arms from the Hot Rod part of POTP Rodimus Prime.

    Like Optimus Prime, I've yet to see a modern Rodimus Prime with an alt mode I prefer to the G1 toy.
