    I am properly convinced by these latest photos. It looks great.
    Like everyone else has said, the proportion of the trailer/ car is off, the way it sticks out too far. But the cartoon version literally couldn’t decide how big it or nimble it was at any given time.
    He looks like a hardened leader.

    I thought "Space Winnebago" was a funny nickname, not a serious evaluation of the alt. mode. A motorhome would have had at least a door on the side. Maybe some windows. Whatever he was, he was clearly built for cargo (in my estimation).

    If they wanted it to be a earth truck and trailer, then don't shape it like the 86 winnebego. Because then it doesn't satisfy either. It's just lazy.

    I was going to say it looks like a garbage truck...., like the. Animated wreck gar figure.


    Maybe the designers got confused when they said to make it look like trash.

    A version of HOT rod..., to shelf WARM.

    If they had any credibility, they would have taken note on the fan response, and between the leak and pulse announcement, have endeavoured to fix the fucked up altmode. But we all know they haven't.


    I think some of it is they dont want mainline looking really. Good, so that the masterpiece still have something to claim. That's why magnus sucked and again with this. It's on purpose

    Can't really shelf warm when stores (outside of online retailers) don't really stock the commanders

    I never thought twice about him being a motorhome. Did any of the movie Autobots have doors, apart from Ultra Magnus? Kup, Blurr, and Hot Rod didn't. When I transformed Studio Series Kup it was a revelation to me that there was a hatch on the back of the cab that solved (for me) the 35-year old mystery of how you would ever be able to get into a truck like that.

    Hot Rod and Rodimus Prime both have "doors" in the sense that their canopies open to allow passengers to get in

    So....what we see is what we’re getting. NOthing fancy. No secondary transformation from hotrod to Rodimus Prime. The trailer is nothing special. Ooooo it has a gun station. WOW. Basically, nothing to justify this figure being a Commander Price point. I don’t get it! Why is this figure NOT a leader class? It is a voyager with a box called at trailer. WHY?

    I’ll wait to get it on sale for half the price. Gives me more money to buy the next Titan.

    You do know that Hasbro (the driving force behind the mainline stuff) has nothing to do with the MP stuff right? They don't even sell it directly anymore aside from the MPM stuff.

    People complained when Optimus' trailer couldn't fit a deluxe in it. If people want a trailer big enough for that then the price increases.

    Based on everything we've seen from Leaders with trailers these days, this has far more engineering and parts than leaders have been giving us for a while. Look at Optimus or Ultra Magnus and try to tell me the robot or the trailer approaching what we're seeing from this? They are cool but this clearly is putting the added budget to use. Hell, the total package looks beyond even what we were seeing in the heyday of Leaders from 10-15 years ago and all of those probably would be near this price range at todays prices.

    The trailer is useless without Rodimus.

    I can see bids on eBay rising by the second, the ultimate, most wanted, most needed... “Rodimus Prime Trailer (Excluding Rodimus himself) loose”
