    I feel like I should have a Rodimus Prime in my collection and I want to like this one, but it's not what I had hoped for. Really would have preferred a Leader class Rodimus similar in height to Optimus with a simpler "trailer"/base and cannon sized for a Micromaster instead of Rodimus. He may be big enough to justify the price for some, but that makes him too big for my taste. Guess I'm sticking with just TR Hot Rod for his character

    I’m all over this. Not sure if the alt mode is mistransformed or not, but other than that I think it looks great. The Rodimus I’ve wanted since ‘06 but never got.

    Is it worth $80? YMMV. It’s probably worth that to me and that’s all I care about.

    I'm just going to say it! $80 bucks for this figure is absolutely amazing!!! I would easily throw down $300 for this figure. This is the single best chug scale Rodimus Prime that has ever been made. I currently have MP Hotrod standing in for Rodimus Prime on my Season 3 Autobot Shelf, so this release is a must have at all cost for me!

    If my Japanese serves me well, we're getting:

    -Rodimus
    -Trailer
    -Cannon? I think it's referring to the trailer cannons that are on wheels
    -Gun
    -Sword
    -10 Effect Parts
    -Matrix
    -Character Card

    Slightly off but on topic, For those interested, I nabbed these off of the TakTOm site as well and just blew them up a bit. I think these would make decent backgrounds for those who like to photograph their toys with simple backgrounds.

    I stuck with using the Kingdom logo for the maximal and pred logos since the Kingdom series revolves around Beastwars.

    Anyone have a guess at what his height might be?
    I assume he won't be as tall as the Jetfire but will make up a fair amount of parts for the price point.

    Easy pass. I'm perfectly happy with my SS86 Hot Rod. A big box with a gun for him to stand on isn't worth the ridiculous mark up for me.

    IMHO I think He'll be as tall as Kingdom Dinobot or possibly he'll be as tall as Cyclonus (to the tips of his bunny ears) which to me is ok.

    The lines on his face don’t look good on the toy.
