    I'm wondering if this is a KO, the KO maker is trying to cash in on the upcoming Protector kit?

    Yeah, my money's on this being a KO in order to cash-in on the upcoming FP's RP trailer/armour...

    Red and yellow plastics have translucency issues. They're most likely to let light through.

    Classics and Henkei Rodimus are a deeper red, so they don't have that problem. But the lighter red plastic on this one isn't so fortunate.

    I'm pretty sure this is real. There's too much attention paid to the paint apps and colour choices to match the animation colours, details that would be lost to the average KO company.

    I gotta go with this! If this, plus a cartoon accurate Cyclonus are in a three pack, then well.. AWESOME.

    But my main concern is Galvatron. Repainted crappy deluxe? Or awesome repaint of the SL voyager Galvatron mold? I hope the latter. This would make the set a homerun

    For supposedly being big on details, they sure missed big on those chest flames. They look horrible.

    Again, I call KO.

    I was thinking the same thing

    I sincerely hope this is just a KO because that looks awful. I think the people that missed out the first time should at least get something that looks better than that. Hopefully the # pack will come out and has a decent figure in it.

    Thank Primus I got the first release when it came out.....

    Hopefully, it's real, it's an early test shot, and the issues with the plastic have since been resolved.

    ..otherwise, this would require an extensive repaint.

    Meh.. I'll take it. My original Classics Rodimus is up on ebay. Its not that great of a mold. I'd rather make some money on my old one and get this cheap.

    That's a terrible looking KO. Plastic looks like it'll break if looked at too hard.

    ...this will be real. Not a KO, not a test-shot, this is how it will be when released at retail alongside Galvatron and Cyclonus.

    God, I hope not. I'm all for cartoon accuracy, but the quality on that looks pitiful.

    Don't say it like you know, this is just your opinion/ guess.

    And my opinion/guess says - this isn't quite the final version that Hasbro intends to release.

    I hope not!!

    Anime deco is interesting but - I can see this being useful for putting inside the protector Armor if the colors don't clash to much.

    I'm not a fan of the opaque windows though.

    This will be a test shot to see how the toy looks in that type of plastic which has the same hue that Hot Rod had in the movie
