    KURO KARA KURI RODIMUS (wicked sick non-transfomable action figure which is a Transformer and there’s no denying it)

    Probably should’ve just left these in the other thread.

    Not sure why the design changed but I guess they want a more modern look to go with Tarn.

    Officially licensed model kits? I look forward to seeing these develop.

    Yeah they’ve been going about a year. They just revealed the 3 Beast Commanders. It’s a very different style to what they’ve done. Many different artists on this.

    Not sure if I'm excited or disapointed about the change. Both designs deserve a good toy. This design has several respectable toys, but no great one, while the other has no toy. I guess if you made me chose one I would have gone this direction, but I was looking forward to the other. I'll definitely be getting this one.

    Even as a massive MTMTE fan, I was looking forward to the Figueroa design.

    That being said, MTMTE RODDY LET'S GOOOOO!!!

    Speaking of MTMTE (and your avatar), I really hope they get to Chromedome at some point. The MTMTE design is wonderful and I generally find all toys 3P and official to be very lacking.

    I suspect the main reason they chose the MTMTE design so he’d look nicer next to Tarn. Which is understandable. But I was leading to believe he was the Figueroa design so he’d match with Drift and Megatron. So I guess the real question is, why doesn’t anyone make toys based off other drift designs?

    Chromedome and Rewind two pack would be incredible.

    I'm not up on the over all history of Drift beyond the basics. But I have read MTMTE and how ever old that design is, it's very close to the one used in MTMTE. In fact given that Rody and Drift aare nearly best friends in MTMTE, it's very fitting in that respect. Still a bit disapointed though.

    Maybe they'll do the figueroa design as one of the model kits. I'm frustrated that I'm going to end up with a certainly nicer duplicate of a toy I have rather than a whole new Rody i don't have at all.

    They’re notably different designs.

    I guess so. I'm looking at covers, etc. They don't really look like that either, but I guess they are closer to that than Flame Toys version. Suppose I could out issue and thumb through them, but really I need to go to bed.

    No need or get too invested in it. It’s just a personal issue I have with most Drift figures not choosing to go for other designs and sticking with the old one.

    From the Tweets Windblade, Optimus Primal, "Leo Prime", and Big Convoy are models. Furai models.

    Rodimus is Kara Kurai, like Tarn, Drift, and Star Saber.

    Meh, I wish they'd do a more traditional Hot Rod design. Hate the IDW look for him.

    I think that’s their main vibe for the Kuro Kara Kuri stuff. What about it makes you hate it?
