So much for the "Rodimus will be much taller than Optimus" crowd.
Also that's the Studio OX pose.
They sure are getting a lot of mileage out of the SS86 Hot Rod mold!
Great, so Galvatron is going to be taller than Rodimus. Great.
Rodimus makes kup look like a teenager
I like thinking of Rodimus as a young punk who suddenly aged about 40 years in seconds and had the wisdom of the Matrix injected into his consciousness in the blink of an eye. It makes his look and character make more sense. The giant hands, the aged face, the never-quite-comfortable-in-the-leadership-role vibes he always gave off.
I also always got the sense that because he was already a "hot rod," once the Matrix powered him up he was almost unimaginably powerful. Too powerful for even him to handle. Hence the pipes, flames, massive rifle that he can barely hold it's so big, huge double cannon, etc.
Thinking of him in this way helps me rationalize a lot.
Well there’s always the bright side.
I’m sure Marvel fans will be thrilled when toy-coloured Galvatron comes out and scales with Ultra Magnus.
Referencing anything Marvel did is never a bright side.
I don’t see how.
They came out before and lasted longer than the cartoon.
They were more competently written.
They have a large following.
And many ideas and concepts they introduced are still revisited and expanded upon over the cartoon, like the Dinovots.
Marvel UK, and Target: 2006 is a surprisingly well done amazingly fun comic story.
The Magnus/Galvatron rivalry also has roots in the toy commercials and some Season 3 episodes, too.
Taller no bigger yes.
Because your bar is so low, you've tripped over it.
It also has roots in rose tinted sunglasses.
Never noticed how big Rodimus' hands are.
And how does the Sunbow cartoon compare as any sort of bar? Since we’re comparing Rodimus and Magnus to Galvatron.
It wasn't much of a high bar for quality either. Just because we enjoy something doesn't mean it's any good. I don't know why you thought this was such a gotcha.
Voyager with gimmicks with the same price as Jetfire / Sky Lynx
Eh, don't worry he'll be on clearance soon enough.
Welcome to Tfw2005!
Seriously he does look fine to me to
lmao fucking yaoi hands rodimus
would you rather him be shorter?
Op: It's not worth it, Rodimus
Rod: Stop holding me back. Let me at em!
Op: I said leave it!
Rod: But they said I'm just a SS86 retool!
Op: *glares at tfw*
