    Interesting - tho as has been said, this is evidently a reference image rather than the actual toy design. Personally, I hope it's a little more "technical" looking when we do finally see a prototype.

    I wanted Hotrod. :( 

    I really hope the transformation goes beyond "knock Rodimus over and park a trailer on top of him". But that's all you really need to do to transform Roddy...

    as if thousands of credit cards cried out in terror and were suddenly maxed out.


    so bought if the price isn't insane and even better if it gets a us release.

    If this is indeed associated to a MP design, hopefully it's the first phase of a 20 step design process... because that looks exceedingly boring. Even the sketches for MP Grimlock - the most simplistic Masterpiece yet and the one most akin to his G1 toy counterpart - was FAR more detailed than whatever this is.

    Sooooo this sounds like the coolest thing ever.

    Anyway, nothing gets me excited like a new Masterpiece figure. Well maybe Nexus Maximus does.

    Looking forward to the inevitable Galvatron too.

    Some news is good news I suppose. Even if it is just a drawing.

    I doubt they would try going the cardboard trailer route again.

    That looks sweet, but I doubt the final product will look that sleek, I mean these look like animation sheets, but still a nice "sneak peak" at this guy

    I think I'll be giving this MP a pass. I was hoping for a MP Hot Rod with a RP Trailer/Armour - obviously not what we're getting. :/

    it would be such a simplistic transformation. surely if they can make megatron properly, they can make a rodimus that can also transform to hotrod. id rather hotrod but would still get this if it was only rodimus and really was as simplistic a design as this early pic.

    if the matrix loved hotrod/rodimus- are we not fools to disagree? surely nobody here thinks they have more intelligience then the matrix to disagree with its judgement.

    It says they will stick with the original style (proportion?) of Rodimus Convoy (from the show) to make it a masterpiece toy on the top of that scan. Hopefully it would not be some huge shell covering up the robot body in alt mode.

    I don't know if I'll be passing on this one, but I feel the same way as you do as I was also hoping for an MP Hot Rod with and RP Trailer/Armor. :( 

    True for the old toy. What bugs me is Rodimus Prime doesn't look like much without his trailer. Unlike Prime where he looks fine in alt mode without his. Sure, it isn't complete, but at least you can get away with it on Prime. Not so with Rodimus Prime who is doomed to be stuck with his Winnebego box forever. I prefer Hot Rod (or Hot Rodimus) as he is at least a sleek futuristic sports car. Oh well. :(

    Oh hell yeah!!!!! I know what I'm getting for Christmas (if he's out by then, I'm guessing yes) from my wife! I already asked for him and she already confirmed!!!!!

    (that and PROTECTOR ARMOR!!!! If you haven't guessed, my Favorite Character is Rodimus Prime)

    Edit:

    They should be able to include the "trailer" in the transformation IMO. Hell, they did it well with Titanium Rodimus and he was only a deluxe.

    I don't even like Rodimus or Rodimus Prime, but I plan to give it a chance and buy him just to support the MP line because we are getting a NEW MOLD.

    Here's a brief translation thanks to my wife (who might have a bit of trouble since she doesn't speak 'Transformer') :p 

    Transformers Masterpiece Rodimus Convoy
    Price and release date not yet decided
    7th toy of 2010 promotion. He was chosen by a matrix, he's made as close as possible to original Rodimus who became the new leader following convoy
