    Of course, then the OSKO will be life size.

    Rumored for a long time and known to those keeping up with leaks, but news to any of those who haven’t kept up.

    Hey, I wasn't hating on any 7 year-olds for liking it. Just saying it wasn't for me.

    That front end vehicle mode is growing on me....
    Somebody in this thread mentioned a “Space SUV”, and now I’m kind of liking it! :D

    Thank you! I've been saying the same thing since the Commander Rodimus rumors 1st started....

    A better Commander class character would've been Deathsaurus or Star Saber. While making Rodimus into a quality Leader class figure this time. Which would've made more TF fans happy and resulted in HasTak making more money this year.

    True or not...?

    May be true to some extend but I think they wanted to go all out seeings as its the 35th anniversary and they wanted the hero of the film to get the figure he finally deserves.

    I do hope this figure keeps the weaponizer holes underneath his foot from Hot Rod's design, overall he seems to be minimal as far as ports go, though the spoiler using a 5mm hole to presumably attach the trailer and resulting in what looks like a backpack port in robot mode is a nice touch!

    If it’s true that next year they’ll abandon the Titan Class in favor of doing Two Commander class figures a year, maybe we’ll all get this wish then!
    We can always hope, cuz I’d be down for that.

    Finally.. arise RODIMUS PRIME. One of my favorite characters. Cant wait to see a full reveal and I will pre order multiples (i always get multiples of the leaders just in case). Hopefully he just as imposing and posable as ER Optimus. Cant wait to see them side by side. Also hopefully we will finally have a Rodimus and Galvatron IN SCALE with each other.

    Didn't the same rumors also mention armada stuff? Like maybe we could get that commander class tidal wave I've wanted forever (would prefer a titan class but meh).

    Oh man this looks great and will definitely join my collection. I can see why this is frustrating to others, and I would love to see some new or less used characters get some love. The previous 2 commanders were perfect uses of the size class, not sure yet how this one will pan out. Part of me wonders if we could get a surprise inclusion of a second figure for it. Having Rodimus and Galvatron in the same box would be KILLER in my opinion. It would also be interesting to see how that would open up different price points in the future. Like the two big titans return exclusive sets. I loved those. If feels like this is a continued experimentation by Hasbro to release interesting renditions of popular characters. Like the opposite of Transformers Evergreen. My opinion is my own though and I know I may be overly optimistic. I was one of the people who really wanted a Cybertronian Siege Bumblebee and Jazz. I will have to console myself with my WfC Bee. :D  But not FoC Jazz he was awful.:confused:
