    Something that came to mind - Will Fans Project be releasing 2 versions of these at the same time? Because with the wing extensions and the flames on the trailer, there are noticeable differences between Classics Rodimus and Henkei Hot Rodimus.

    Like, Classics Rodimus would look stupid with vac-metal yellowwing extensions, and same goes with Henkei Hot Rodimus with plain orange wing extensions.

    IIRC, Henkei and Classics Rodimus have different coloured flame decos, too.

    The wing extensions might not be yellow or gold.

    Man, I was ready to pass on this at first, so sure that making the upgrade look different would seem forced. Nope, it looks awesome. So awesome that it's making me rethink posing my Prime's with their trailers just so this one won't look out of place because that trailer NEEDS to be displayed.

    Currently I only have one Classics Rodimus so I'm thinking I may get the upgrade kit and put it on that one. Then if they re-release Classic Rodimus I'll buy a new one or just wait a few years after the hype from this dies down and find one loose/cheap on eBay.

    Perhaps, but Classics/Henkei Roddy's thighs have two car panels that become armor in robot mode. Making something to cover it up would be difficult. Could end up making the thighs overly bulky-looking if they ever found a way around it.

    The proto looks pretty damn good. Wasn't planning to get it but if the upcoming 3-pack Rodimus looks good enough I may use my old Classics version for this....

    so with the add on wings then does it really matter what version we have now? the usa hasbro / henkei versions will both use the same add on wing to cover the original wing correct?

    They were likely talking about Cyclonus' Targetmaster, at least that's what Vangelus said on his twitter. and he was there, shooting the video, so I trust his judgement.

    Negatory. Check this out:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...t-protector-prototype-pics-2.html#post4938476

    I believe Protector is coming with a TM. They were simply saying how the TM (this new one or Nightstick) could ride in the roller. The only reason it's unclear is because Vangelus interrupted the guy while he was talking. The matter became rather muddled due to that. While Vangelus did shoot a video for the armor, he never got to see the TM. Someone else was fiddling with it while he was shooting his video nearby. I know the picture mentions something about Vangelus filming the TM. However, maybe it wasn't him? Either that, or he wasn't sure what he was filming.

    ZOMG! This could totally ruin our chances of getting a legit Hasbro/Takara/Tomy release of a Rodimus Prime! I can't support this awesomeness!

    ;)  (and no, I'm not serious for those who read too much into things)

    Seriously, I'm actually looking forward to this. I have the FP City Commander and this sucker is a must (Springer I can build myself when I find the time--kitbashers FTW).

    No problem. I think there has been quite a bit of confusion regarding the TM. For some odd reason, he wasn't shown to Vangelus during the video. Heck, the guy flashed the fin extension for all of 2 seconds. We barely got to see that. Honestly, I was disappointed in the vid. Didn't reveal too much. I appreciate the effort by Vangelus, but I finished the video wanting so much more. Why? Because I know there is more to the protector upgrade.

    The guy did show Vangelus and I the Targetmaster and the fin in more detail but he asked that he not film it. Both exist and both look very nice but the designs might not be final.
