    A Titanium reissue? Didn't see that one coming. Where's that new Deluxe Hot Rod that was rumoured?

    Including the Titanium figure feels like a belated April Fool's joke.

    Two bad toys packed into one set. What a fantastic deal!

    Yeah, it's kinda ironic! They could have at least retooled rodimus hands to be more open or retool the matrix to have 5mm pegs. Or both.

    I know both of those molds have pretty bad reputations, but I don't own any version of either of them, so I'd be interested in getting it if the price is low enough of it goes on clearance soon enough.

    Can't wait to get two crappy molds that have only become worse with time at a ridiculously jacked-up price.

    He can't exactly light our darkest hour if he can't even hold the Matrix. Also, since I don't own either of these molds, what are the flaws people keep talking about?

    If it was a joke,i ain't laughing.

    As an added bonus, Well' throw in a accessory that will not work with the intended mold for free! Geez,they shoulda at least added a chain so Galvatron could use it.

    Well,atleast it might wind up being cheaper in the clearance bin.

    The art's nice. That's the only good thing I can say about this set.

    Yeah, the art is kinda neat. Too bad we can't get that box for free.

    Well, To be fair... there isn't much G1 accurate Rodimus Prime mold choices to begin with.

    There's alot of Hot Rod. But not so much for Rodimus.

    Let's hope Rodimus is cast in rather good plastic and isn't loose as all heck.

    Eh if I come across a set and have the money might pick it up or wait for clearance. Already getting Titans Return Galvatron as my CHUG Galvatron but that Rodimus might be my Rodimus Prime till a better one comes out.

    I like Titanium Rodimus to be honest...

    That Galvatron is really overshadowed now though, even if I didn't hate it before.

    Galvatron has a hard time standing, his stature is small, his transformation is a mess and his proportions are bad. He also has excess parts that do nothing but were rumored to be part of an unfinished canon mode.

    Rodimus was okay by Titanium standards, but here's the thing- he only really looks good from the front. From the side he has a huge gap in his torso and his head is in an odd spot. His chest also flips out of place if you rotate his arms up.
