Ye gods, this thread actually made my brain twitch with the near-apocalyptic levels of absolute WTAF.
Roll on the 10th, when it's just going to be fifty times worse.
Look at this side by side post: First look at Kingdom Rodimus
The spike thing that juts out of the yellow wings isn’t there. The wings also look a little flatter than the Hot Rod figure, as well as having different shaped points. No dramatic change, but one you notice when figures are side by side.
"Since the world's been turning"
G1 - different (not Hot Rod) robot, but a "partial" alt that links to its trailer.
MP - Hot Rod assumes "different" robot, but a partial alt that needs its trailer
Classics (via 3P) - Hot Rod assumes partial robot that needs trailer, alt hides complete vehicle with trailer.
Exactly one 3P - different robot with a complete alt.
POTP - Hot Rod assumes partial robot that needs trailer, alt hides complete vehicle with trailer.
Kingdom appears to be splitting the difference. A different robot with a complete alt (bulkier than Hot Rod's), but still links to a trailer.
Even wilder is they're going with Commander class?! That's the big boy class, and he only needed to be Optimus' size to work. How much of a battle station is he hauling?
I think this thread has already run it's course...
At least until the next leak.
Plus, for good measure
Titaniums - complete vehicle transforms into robot without removing any trailer. Doesn't look great in either mode while doing it.
I legit just spit my coffee out. Lmao!
This thread for me now:
I have never had so much fun watching people bitch. It's been some of the best entertainment I've read in a long time. All this, over a 6 pixel photo. 53 pages, over a 6 pixel photo.
Keep up the great work.
I completely forgot about that one. So 2 attempts lived the dream, 2 were new guys with half an alt, and 2 were Powermaster Hot Rod.
Kingdom is living the dream, but have a trailer anyway.
I use to enjoy threads like this back in the day. But after taking a break, this is so much easier. If you don't like what you see, don't get it. There is a lot of different representations of Rodimus available whether it be from MP, 3rd Party or even Hasbro themselves. If you do like it, get it. One thing is, no one from either side is going to convince the other side of their side. Not in 2021 anyway. With the world being as fucked as it is, just try to enjoy this hobby, this is supposed to make us happy, not go at each other.
I'm interested to see how big this thing actually will be. Still can't imagine this being "commander class" size.
Hot Rod's been getting alot of love lately (along with the other movie cast). It's gonna be interesting to see the MP lineup for the next couple of months.
Are you asking how much junk he has in his trunk?
Commander Class is a price point, not size.
Big butts - preferable.
Lying - impossible.
I feel like this is going to be a point of contention for years to come, people still haven't realized that after years of Studio Series or WFC
Exactly. You pay for the dance, not what’s in his pants.
Blondie is a band.
We've reached a point with WfC where people have forgotten all of their criticism of late stage Leaders having hollow bits to allow them to he as tall as they were.
