    I'm buying this. I wouldn't buy Thunderwing and probably wouldn't buy Starsaber or Deathsaurus. I would possibly buy Powermaster Optimus.

    I think you're speaking for a more hardcore subset of fans. With 2 Commanders coming a year, I'm rooting for one of those or more to be those deep cuts you crave but partly so my wallet can take a break.

    Honestly hoping for a G1 Optimus or Ultra Magnus Commander figure at some point though.

    Bummer, I was really hoping those first pics were mistransformed and the cab could slot further under the trailer but I guess it can't.

    :lol 

    I'm sorry (not really), but all of the moaning and whining about the price is hilarious - this is the most accurate version we've ever gotten of Rodimus Prime in a mainline and I'm sure that many of those complaining about the price spent $80 or more on a less accurate 3P option - anyone remember that Protector-what-if-Rodimus-Prime-was-made-out-of-legos add on kit? My god that looked awful. Also, prices have been steadily increasing on mainline TF's over the last 10 years - I remember when deluxes were less than $10, so keep that in mind - smaller size and higher prices isn't exactly new and it definitely didn't happen overnight.

    I would have gladly given $80 for a figure of this caliber back then, and if I had the money now, would also definitely do so.

    To their credit, Jetfire and Sky Lynx were both 10/10 figures that blew away expectations and Rodimus is just sufficiently whelming. I can see why they're disappointed.

    Their loss though! :lol

    Chest different. Arms different. Legs - similar?

    It’s not just an upscale.

    I don't know why so many people are complaining that Rodimus Prime looks so much like Hot Rod, have you not seen the original G1 cartoon?
    That's kinda the whole point.

    This figure looks amazing. Can't wait to see it in person. Hard to believe we get figures like this, Cyclonus, Primal, Megs and Dinobot..... but also Galvatron.

    The 9th is going to be off the chain. Kingdom wave 3 with Galvatron, Rodimus, Tracks, Gears, plus maybe some new Generations Selects, and the possibility of SS86 wave 2.

    POTP is a great toy. Blocky, simple transformation what child wouldn’t want one. Kingdom is a Great toy and Collectors wet dream.

    Lets end this nonsense about size. Optimus and Rodimus will be almost exactly the same sizes. Studio-Series-Hot-Rod-02.jpg Kingdom-Commander-Class-Rodimus-01.jpg
