    I also think Flame Toys missed the mark with their LEDs. The MTMTE model had those Energon lines in his lower abdomen which seems to be a prime spot for some lights to me.

    Wait until you see the price on D4 and other sellers that are not Japanese based. He's not going to be $600. Probably closer to $400 like the others.

    He looks brilliant. I do wish he had an alternate helmet like his earlier IDW look as well.

    So Kuro Kara Kuri Megatron is ¥61650 (without sales tax I reckon) at HLJ so maybe this is an indication that Rodimus will be the same price or cheaper as Megatron when not ordering from Japan: https://www.hlj.com/flame-toys-kuro-kara-kuri-transformers-megatron-normal-version-fms51366

    Having ordered direct from D4 for most of these, the most expensive ones so far have been $400. I imagine he will be close to there.

    Because they can. I believe Hot Toys are similarly more expensive in Japan than elsewhere. Sad but true.

    I could handle 400. Won’t be happy about the price, but I love, love this design. Question, are any of you going to display him in Rodimus mode?

    Maybe if they are releasing a Lost Light Rodimus to get some variety on the display case.

    It does state that he is 2100mm tall. If that is the top of the head he should be the same size as Drift.
    I hope he will still be available next month. I just payed for the Early Color Wing Gundam and need some breathing room for my toy funds to recover.

    I think the fact that it's an actual fishing rod that can turn into a sword which makes it kind of cool for me. I initially thought it would just be a sword that had fishing rod parts which made me wish it was the exclusive item instead of the bow. The fishing rod is definitely more important to rodimus' character than the animated bow so my opinion has switched. I'm probably not going to get this unfortunately, money's kind of tight right now and I still have stuff preordered that need to be settled first.

    I didn't even notice that. That's even better.

    Figured, since all the Japanese advertisements state as much. With their cost being $200 more, one would hope it would.
