    well of course you are. You gotta save you money for 3P legends size figures that cost the price of commanders and scam Amazon to give you free toys you hypocrite. Hell I’m surprised you just don’t do that to get rodimus. Use all your amazon credit from demanding them refund you for previous toys that got delayed and demand they still honor your orders like you’ve touted around doing.

    As long as there's not stress directly on that part, it should be fine.

    MP-09's spoiler is also painted over translucent blue plastic, and as much trouble as some people have had with that figure, broken spoilers is generally not one of them.

    ......Are you sobbing in that default pic?

    Never mind, here's a better question. What in 7 hells are you typing about? Either show me a picture or a quote of mines that references me buying an $80 3P figure the size of a Legends class or go demand a free dosage of Prozac from your Shrink! Seriously, how is Amazon offering credits for screwing up back to back pre-orders a damn scam????

    If there was a crime committed here then go sing to the cops instead of kissing Hasbro's @ss for charging you Commander class prices for a figure that's barely worth $50. I'm sure they'll reward you buy charging $100.00 for the next Voyager scaled Blitzwing...

    Let's chill for a sec and realize that 1. Rodimus Prime isn't a fan favorite because all you gwunners love the of Optimus and 2. This is the first GOOD rodimus toy we've had since g1. Sure the price is crazy but its not that crazy when you have a 50 buck gift card or if u just sell some figures for 90 dollars

    News flash: the worldwide economic machine doesn't operate based off of how much you feel things are worth.

    If what you're seeing isn't worth your money, then that's your call, and it's within your prerogative to not buy it. But nobody's going to go back to the bean counters, crying that YoungPrime doesn't want to buy the toy that they spent a year designing, so maybe they should've made it cheaper.

    This is, beyond any reasonable doubt, a bigger toy with more parts than what we got with the previous Leader-class Optimus Prime release. That equates to a more expensive toy, end of story. Just because you don't like what's being offered doesn't mean they're not entitled to charge more for it.

    237 pages means people love them Rodimus!:deadhorse: Regardless how he killed Optimus!:lol 

    Btw, supposedly the "adult", collector market has been at a stable 20% of the consumer pie /market share. Not so big if you ask me and if you compare that to Japan, we can huff and puff and Hb and the rest wouldn't care slaag! Still the kids toys that get the love.

    I'm not at all thrilled with the price of this guy, but I will be spending it just this once for a good Rodimus figure. I skipped the POTP version because it looked like a mess in combined mode. This looks much more natural and a good evolution to the 86 figure. Wish the spoiler wasn't all hollowed out for bot mode though.

    Huh. Pretty cool that the weapons can store away on just the "cab" itself, so that the figure can be completely self-contained even without toting the trailer around.

    I...I'm not even worried about the spoiler. I was just answering the question about whether the spoiler was painted over clear plastic. I think your confusing me with the person the guy I was answering quoted.

    Ok, so here's something interesting.

    That new pic of the bottom may give us a clue how the shoulders end up facing the way the do in bot mode. It almost looks like the entire torso/head assembly is attached to that black swing running down the middle. I'm betting you unlock the arms, which double hinge down on the sides to take up their position in bot mode, then swing the entire front end through, and rotate the arms/shoulders around 180 degrees above and separate from the waist before swinging the chest back up and into place. There is probably another 180 turn at the waist, just as on SS86 Hot Rod, to get everything lined up face front.

    He's definitely more complicated than he looks. Similar ideas to what Hot Rod used, but all executed just a little bit differently. And I still absolutely love that front wheel collapse for bot mode, such a fantastic detail they didn't need to do but did. It elevates the truck mode, which both differentiates him from the low riding Hot Rod and allows weapon storage for the sword, but tucks in so neatly in bot mode. Just a great touch. Top marks, design team. Top marks.
