He's MP-10 height, about 10". So taller than Leader by a little bit.
Thanks! The one that got away.
He might be getting a re-release in the near-ish future.
ShowZ at least has a provisional pre-order page open, and it's been bandied about that most of DX9's product will be seeing a new release cycle within the next couple of years (essentially, the company is defunct now in terms of new releases, but there's a small skeleton crew of folk still onboard just to squeeze new money out of stuff they've already done).
Target, Walmart, or online retail… where will he pop up first… Galvatron is already out… won’t be long now.
He's about the size of MP-10, so yeah doesn't fit on a CHUG collection unfortunately
Any pics next to mp-28?
Anyone had luck finding him out there in retail?
This is the only review that I saw which mentions these wheels. The wheels at the front of the trailer (on his copy at least) don't touch the ground when the cab is combined with the trailer (Just go to around 13:50 of the video).
Yeah, I don't think it's worth 80 bucks. MAYBE 60 bucks. Suffers from Gimmick Filled Trailer Raised The Price syndrome like MP Prime 3.0
Give me mechfanstoys version but in voyager scale. That's better than carry!
Your getting a 200$ figure for 90$
Like/comprehend it or not… that is the facts of the matter.
At some point he will likely get released enough people will find him at Bargain stores… maybe.
Yes, Give Us that in Voyager size. His Truck mode can go well with my Matchbox collection.
With Wave 3 starting to hit stores, the wait for Roddy officially begins...
YUP! Hasbro’s official release date for Galvatron is 9/1. It’s 2.5 months early! I’m guessing Rodimus will appear in July. Rhinox has sorta appeared too? It’s trickling in but arriving sooner then scheduled! Hurrah!
Blech. No thanks.
No spoiler in Alt mode.
Enormous Spoiler in Robot mode and the alt mode kibble at the lower torso sticking way out
Chest is too narrow, his torso is a straight tube down.
This figure is arguably worth the $90 price point, he has the parts count for it (I just don't think it went to enough things that justify that cost). But there is no way on Earth he is worth anywhere near $200.
Probably why they are not selling him for 200$. He is well worth the 90$
price point and he like jetfire will likely see discounts(I got mine for 30$ at Walmart) We will likely never see another G1 rodimus prime in the main again.
I just got him in a few hours ago.
First impression is that he is a LOT bigger than I was expecting. The trailer dwarfs Earthrise Op’s trailer, and even with Nonnef’s add-ons, the Roddy trailer is heavier. The Rodimus figure itself feels hefty, which is a word I never expected to use for a mainline TF again, but am very happy to do so. Trust me when I say that in-hand, you can tell that this is Commander class
One thing I’m having difficulty with is that the trailer won’t fully close. I don’t know if it’s just my copy, or if this has been discussed before, but is this widespread? It’s a bit better with the gun turret removed, but it still won’t fully close together.
There’s also a better way to transform the battle station so that the ramp doesn’t look like an afterthought.
Ok just got him into robot mode. Definitely influences of SS Hot Rod in the design, but he’s still very much his own figure. Only quibble is that the rear backpack doesn’t peg too securely to the windshield and pops off relatively easily. He could have used some more paint apps to bring out the details too, but I think Toyhax is going to have a field day with this guy.
Tolerance issues aside….if I never buy another Transformer again, I am fine with it. Between SS Hot Rod and Rodimus, I am just so absolutely satisfied. Whoever said this was near MP level wasn’t wrong, it is just a step beyond anything we’ve seen in any mainline figure so far. Haters will hate, but, to me, the price is absolutely justified. Is he perfect? No, and I’ll probably touch on that later. But for now, I am just going to take the time to bask in my sheer, unadulterated joy at having this Rodimus in hand after waiting decades for a proper redo of the G1 toy. I can’t get “The Touch” out of my head right now.
Where did you get him?
