    Yeah my thinking is the 3 pack with re deco Galvatron and Cyclonus. I think this guy will look much better in the flesh.

    This is exactly what I was thinking when I saw those pics. Be interested to see the other figures from the set now if this is indeed the case.

    These are the reasons I believe this is a KO. The plastic looks too thin, no light piping in the head, painted windows and, if you look closely, it is slightly taller than the official Rodimus figs. In my opinion, this is a well made KO that would look quite cool with a bit of extra paint. I would pick this up if I didn't already have three versions of this mold.

    I know. But I believe that my guess that it is an actual Hasbro toy is more likely than it being a KO.

    We'll be seeing this at Botcon.

    He's the same size, Hasbro are known to remove light piping for toys its made for, also painting windows where they could be clear. I don't know about how thin the plastic is but red plastic of shade would let light through. Its just to achieve the look of the original cartoon version.

    I don't like the colored crest on his head though, that should have been left unpainted.

    I bet is that this is a KO just look at the plastic.

    The two things I like? The red head crest (AS IT SHOULD BE!!!!!) and the black shins.

    Besides that......if this is a hasbro product and I can actually get a hold of it, I'll buy it. It's a Hot Rod toy, therefore I have to.

    Well looks like the same mould with 86 movie details. Windows may be real as they've been used before on some ROTF figures like Recon IronHide and one of the bumblebees.

    I don't care if this is real or a K.O. if it means I can get a Classics Rodimus for less the the 50 quid they're going for on eBay I'm all over it. And if it comes in a 3 pack with Cyclonus and Galvatron then even better, I'm still kicking myself for passing over Cyclonus when I saw him at retail, and you never know, they might have fixed the mold issues on Galvy (although I'm not holding my breath)

    I was thinking of selling my classics Rodimus, but after seeing the pics of this supposed 3-pack Rodimus, I'm holding unto mine.

    Yuck!!! This will not come close to satisfying the need for more Classics Rodimus. This is a hideous piece of crap.

    I like the cleanness and the blue windows..makes it look a bit more like a cartoon character.but the weird shades in the plastic and the weird paint app on his crotch make me doubt if it's a real product or a KO..
