    He does indeed look super awesome! 12 cm in height would put him eye-to-eye with HS Prime so that is great for me if it's a Prime to Prime conversation, but I am still holding out hope that those upper shins collapse down to make him a shorter Hot Rod. I mean, it does look like they have some sort of gimmick planned there doesn't it? Am I just being too optimistic? I know I said a swappable young face would also be nice earlier, but there is no way I could swap out the coolest robot soul patch in the known universe! :D  Plus I don't see any indication of a swap out face plate. Just to be clear, even if Roddy doesn't come with any additional options, I still think this is the best Legends version of him available and it will be a definite purchase for me.

    If I recall, Papa Toys did a good job of playing 'hide the large backpack' with their preview images at first too. I'm getting deja vu with this guy and these pics that purposely don't show a side or back profile.

    It does seem like they’re hesitant to show the back, however it should be much slimmer considering the rear fender pieces do not exist on this version and are made up by the bot mode shins in vehicle mode.

    Okay, that's adorable. I was getting him right away anyway, but that's cool

    Looks pretty good.  I\'m disappointed that Hot Rod\'s car mode doesn\'t have the pipes all the way down the side though, even if they were just snap on pieces. :(

    AH!! That’s what was missing. I couldn’t figure it out for some reason.

    Still looks great, though, and is unironically the best 3P Hotrod/Rodimus I’ve ever seen.

    Except for the 3 exhaust pipes going till the end of the car, I agree. That car alt mode is def the best looking of all the official and 3p G1 car modes I've seen.

    That's what I'm referring to. The car mode pipes don't stop where the arms stop, they go up a little and all the way to the back of the car.

    This is the first of this class that I feel I absolutely need. If only Rodimus Prime got the priority close to Optimus\' in every line.

    So this is about 5-6" tall ? I never cease to be amazed with how far toy engineering has come since the originals were released in the 1980's.

    I just collect IF, Newage and MS but I really like this one. I might pick this up. Love the targetmaster. We need more of that.

    Looks better than MP-09. Takara should start recruiting some of these 3P engineers, because you can really see the passion in their work.

    I agree, as soon as I saw the post for this, without reading that it was legends class, I thought it was at least a deluxe scale.
