    Brings him close, if not a bit taller than Optimus but I think Magnus will still be taller. Why didn't they make Rodimus a leader(of the autobots) and Magnus (city)commander class? Looks good and will buy it day one cause I'm at a scalper region and he won't shelf warm lol.

    Looks great, I like the sizing. And the Trailer doesn\'t look like just a cheap 2 dollar box of plastic

    If height equaled price point then ROTF and Animated Lockdown would be voyagers.

    I’m pretty sure they are the same as the omega ones because one was showed in a photo earlier, just blue colored so they look like matrix effects but still, pretty badass looking,

    And more people would've been happy if the Commander class slot was filled by either StarSaber, Deathsaurus or even Thunderwing.
    But I'm willing to bet that next year's Commander will just be another damn Powermaster Optimus instead.

    Anyway, if Hasbro wants a lot more of our money for Rodimus then they'll have to release one without that $50 trailer like I said before. No big deal though, since our money can go elsewhere if not.

    That is the exact opposite of what he just said. He said it is the part courts and not the size.Are you doing this on propose?

    People also need to factor in the use of the mold... Prime was kicked down to leader level because they could sell him as a Netflix figure, shattered glass, nemesis, dead prime, and about 32 other recolors, making the mold less expensive in the long run. Rodimus has one use... Rodimus. Maybe two with the shattered glass version. It’s not all parts count, it’s also mold viability for other figures.

    I was adding to to the post I quoted, I agreed with it.
    Sorry if I came across the wrong way.

    I was saying height / size doesn't equal price.

    Especially not anymore, now it's part count, plastic quantity and number of pinned parts.

    Not to mention how many different molds they might have used for different sprues rather to possibly avoid what happened to hot rods roof.

    Lots of things add to cost.

    The short version. Beast Wars saved the franchise. The Unicron Trilogy reignited nostalgia. The movies made Transformers mainstream again.

    Nice, so he can even store Hot Rod in the trailer... and the cannon can be removed and work as a tank-like thing?
    The colors are much better here too.

    if there ever was a time to add another gimmick or two on the trailer, this would have been the time...something that could fold away and people could pretend isn't there because it wasn't on the original toy, but something that would add some play value (or display value as the case may be)
