    I don’t think anything will ever match MP-09’s winnebago. It’s perfect. Te only problem it’s getting there without the fear of breaking something.

    I've just been watching a few reviews in anticipation and I'm pleased to see that, thanks to the way the trailer forms the front of the vehicle with a faux piece, I can use my Hasbro Rodimus to form the alt mode without it looking odd and keep the Takara one in robot mode. That way I can also keep Firebolt.

    Isn’t the red a bit different between the Hasbro and TT version?

    From what I can tell the Takara is more of a maroon colour and the Hasbro is more of a red, but so little of the Hot Rod car mode is exposed in the Rodimus alt mode I don't think it'll be too obvious on a shelf.

    lol... not a chance of being updated or fixed.
    Hope you stocked up on the die cast knee joints.

    BBTS is a toss up, but TFS probably will.

    Or Toy Dojo. I mean they carry MFTs FFS.

    Did V2 have problems too?

    Perfect Rodimus visually, too bad the car is too big scale-wise, so its a no-go.

    I’ve done this and the colors look great with the Hasbro robot mixed with the Takara trailer... BUT the wheels don’t match. Takara’s are chromed and Hasbro’s aren’t.

    This "Masterpiece" is an example of the lack of quality of Hasbro and Takara and they pretend to reissue it?

    Really hope they fix all the quality issues.

    So this news post inspired me to mess around with my Hasbro TRU Rodimus and wouldn’t you know ... I think his elbow joint just broke ... is there any ‘fix’ for that? (not a huge loss ... he was pretty ungainly already and I’m 95% a ‘pose once and display’ kinda guy anywho)

    I have one of those Molotow chrome pens so I can probably sort that if needs be.

    Yes, but it appears to still be an official new run of MP-9 for the Chinese market, and I'm sure a lot of people who have been wanting one of these for the longest time but missed out on the original will not care if it comes from China or Japan (as long as the price is right).

    Yeah, I'm going to get one of these. I skipped MP-09 the first time around, but it's really a missing part of my (now existent) Rodimus shelf. I also hope this presages a Rodimus 2.0 (RP only) with some bomb-ass articulation (since the transformation should be insanely simple)

    But did they fix the problems that came with the original run?

    Unlikely, of you ask me. Looks like an easy money grab...

    Can't wait for a Rodimus Prime v2, to match Megatron and forthcoming Optimus Prime v3.
