    My fear is the inevitable US release will only be Hot Rod and won't have the rotating face :(

    Is it my imagination or that while the earlier pictures we saw had Rodimus in magenta, in the new pictures he's red.

    $200 for the set is a bit more than what I'm willing to pay. I hope it's eventually released here in the US - sans trailer - for a more affordable ~$100.

    I admit that I'm not a hardcore G1 fan, but does anyone else think his alt mode looks horribly horribly dated compared to Classics Rodimus? I don't think it has aged well at all over time.

    The masterpiece line isnt supposed to look fresh and up to date. It is supposed to be the best representation of the G1 character. My biggest upset with classics rodimus was the engine on his chest in robot mode.

    This should be released in 2010 not 2011 its bad enough wating a year for new mould. I mean 2 a year would be fair and it could be done if the stop jacking with those ridiculous movie mps and repaints. So more than the price i feel cheated since mp grimmy was realsed in march of 2009 wow 17 months. Well mp10 galvatron we wont get till june 2012. Damn you hastak:mad

    The same can be said about Grimlock's T-Rex mode as both are accurate depictions of the cartoon interpretation.

    I personally think it's perfect and love that they were able to get it to look the way it does. It's retro future!

    Im getting this figure more for Rodimus more than hot rod but before not looking much at hot rod mode looking now he really lookes awsome nicely done.The thing i was looking at in trailer mode rodimus the flames on the hood look like to plain or not finished dont look right to flames on side of trailer too idk stll i love this mp more and more every time i look at it. But i wish in they would have made his eyes a little bit more squinty in rodimus prime mode face

    Wow, after taking a look at those pics, MP Rodimus is amazingly screen accurate! I hadnt realized until looking at those pics how close they got him to the cartoon. All the little details just look spot on.

    I know this is a fairly pricey MP and I know some folks cant afford that much for a TF but I think those that are disregarding solely based on price are missing out on an amazing piece. I also hope that Hasbro releases this figure for those that cant afford the $200 price tag of the Takara one because if you're a G1 TF fan, this looks to be a figure that you should not have to miss out on.

    We're usually given the line that it takes about a year between concept to final production, but they don't tend to give out hardline data about that sort of thing.

    As for the visor, none of the coloured photos so far have showed it. There was one photo of the grey resin prototype sporting them, however.

    I couldn't disagree more. The Hot Rod alt mode looks amazing. It's low, pointy and wide, just like in the movie. I'm not that convinced by all the alleged changes to make him into Rodimus. Only the face-flip and slightly higher hips are noticeable by side-to-side comparison. I see nothing with the knees, ankles, or rear wing. Rodimus' alt mode was the least appealing, but i'm warming up to it. The price is high, but justified when compared to the other MPs. I'll do what i can to get one... right after i get a deluxe AT-AT.
