    No he doesn't. That's the TakaraTomy 2010 campaign item. You need to collect 10 points from selected 2010 items in order to obtain it.

    Why do I see a "Dark Rodimus" repaint in the future?

    At first I wasn't 100% sure if this figure is going to be superior to Masterpiece Optimus Prime - now, I have no doubts in my mind about this.

    Superior seems a little strong doesn't it. Both seem like they do exactly what they need to do... be awesome.

    Regarding the stand that requires the points. Is there anyway those in the US can redeem their points to get this stand? Or, are we going to have to purchase that too?

    I wish MP Megs had come with a cool base like this. Such blatant self-aggrandizement would suit him better than the Autobot leader.

    Reading the link figure includes.

    Box
    Instruction pamphlet cover
    Filecard(front/back)
    Base

    Someone else in this thread mentioned it was a recolour of the base you mentioned.

    Rodimus has much better alt modes than Convoy... Convoy's truck leaves much to be desired. They should redesign Convoy entirely.

    PLEASE NO. In the least MP Primes Robot form is perfect. Leave new moulds for new characters.

    In a previous post on this site we saw pics that showed all of the parts to turn hot rod into the space winebago mode are attatched to the trailer. You just put the car in backward.

    I missed those pictures, is there a link?

    I always thought that the windshield and roof are just pushed forward to shorten the front of the car.

    If you do a search in the News forum, there's a few threads within the past month or so from various hobby magazines that show MP Rodimus. One of which has a pic of the transformation from Rodimus to Hot Rod and Hot Rod alt mode to Rodimus alt mode.

    You don't "just put the car in backward" but that's the gist of it. The car is slightly transformed to get the spoiler facing in the right direction. Here's the image that shows the transformation sequence:

    I can't wait for this guy, he needs to come out NOW!!! I've owned the City Protector for over a week now and I've already forgotten about him because of this.

    Just like anytime somebody asks a question like that:

    If anybody was in a position to share such information, it would already be posted.


    Quiet you!
