    I plan to preorder from BBTS, Amazon and Japan. I will pick up a local one too if I see it. One for In Box, one display, one for my kid, and one to customize

    Wow! :D 

    I double checked for you and Amazon Japan ships this listing to the US. With a $100 preorder price, this should come in a lot cheaper than eBay, so definitely worth checking out imo :)

    See this is interesting to look at but I think another member explained here that sometimes the depth of field on pics really screws with stuff also Warden said he was in scale with ER Op, so I can't really believe he's THAT big.

    Both ports seem to be equally close to the front. So I'd say it's possible/close

    I'm surprised nobody's just copied and pasted the same 5mm port all the way down the vehicle mode from end to end. Then we would just have the length and could compare it to Optimus, rather than trying to line up pictures exactly...

    He can say he's in scale, but with the nebulous nature of G1 scale and the fact that plenty of figures who are "meant" to be in scale aren't, that doesn't at all mean he will be the same size as ER Prime.

    Galvatron is supposedly a full-size leader according to Phamduc despite that putting him much larger than he should be relative to Cyclonus and Scourge.

    Regarding his being a Commander Class price point...

    One thing is sure.. This toy is being Rodimus itself.
    It doesn't fail to be and still...

    CONTROVERSIAL!

    Hahahaha

    Unless a toy is Sexually explicit or extremely graphic is not controversial. It’s just a toy. You want it buy it... if you don’t want it don’t buy it. The majority of People complain all the time about something it’s just what they do. It’s never going to change... ever.

    Until we get a full review, you don't know the Rodimus Prime toy isn't sexually explicit

    Controversy: "a prolonged public dispute, debate, or contention; disputation concerning a matter of opinion."
    Anything can be controversial if people argue about it enough.

    If he turns out to be Porn star prime they can just slap a 18+ Label on the box and move forward. It’s all good.

    I like him but i wish they did not have to accomodate the spoiler that much where it cuts through the stacks and the body of the trailer itself. I will try to paint the face to a more anime gray much like ss86 Hot Rod. $80 is the logical pricepoint these days. Wish they can redo Prime in this pricepoint and fix that short trailer of his.

    It's a Hot Rod that gets bigger to the sound of someone singing 'You got the touch.'

    Absolute filth.

    Opinions are not facts debates without facts are a waste of energy.

    Wow just wow. Now do the Amazon smile logo.

    Even if its transformation is incorrect (which I doubt) and cause the front section to stick out so far. I'm not sure it would make much difference (see image below); if the spoiler can slide into a more forward position than it is on the promo pics. As you can see since the spoiler can only slide to roughly as far as the slot allows (indicated by the dotted red line in the image); there really isn't that much space (see recess area at the front end centre of the trailer) below or past the spoiler slot within the trailer for the back section of the car to fit in. Maybe they decided to create the trailer roughly the length of the large fold up cannon(?) and no more; so if they allow more "car space" then the fold up cannon(?) might not fit into the trailer properly. They can probably make the trailer longer still to solve the issue but perhaps if they make the trailer any longer; it might look way too long compare to the other "truck" bots.
