    Pretty sure that's not a Rodimus face and is just the pop out visor.

    Blackapple is probably working on a regular size MP28...

    But if Weijang wants to mass produce it, then the "oversizing process" is a given...

    Thicken the legs, get rid of the pointless matrix chamber and streamline the torso then release oversize to mp10 height and oversize to Buzzing/Tesla height and watch the money roll in.

    Or maybe it could flip. Set Mp09 on shortest thighs and put him in Hot Rod mode and make this guy mp10 height as Roddy.....as long as the above fixes are made is probably the better option.

    Fuck yeah! I'm super excited. MP-28 is a really fun mold, can't wait to have it in Wei Jiang's scale. Also excited because this will technically be our first MPP carbot!!!

    I still see gappage from the sideview of him,is his chest not tabbed in good?.Also it does seem like his backpack is thinner,but that could just be the way the pic was taken.I will wait and see reviews on him before I pass judgement,but this does look promising.Also I am one of those conservative types and hope they keep him the same size as MP28,that to me is plenty big enough for me.Tho if they ever do a Rodimus Prime I hope they do one to scale with MP10 and must have a trailer.What is this slated to be priced at,if its more than MP28 then its a pass for me.

    I wouldn't read into gaps at this point, it's clearly got prototype parts on that they're still working on. Backpack looks smaller to me plus it looks to have a new proto part sandwiched in there.

    Interesting if Rodimus height (ie:MP-10). Will be a very big car though? MP-09 already looks oversized in car mode.
    Also curious to see if they can somehow do a trailer option for him. Not really Rodimus if he ain't a truck.
    I'd actually love a KO'd MP-09 with improved joints and QC. Then shrink that mould down to Hot Rod height. I think that'd be my favourite idea. You get Hot Rod in a smaller in-scale car mode, and you get the full Rodimus truck mode as well. All in a more rounded, toon influenced bot mode.

    Yep.

    Like I said, I know it's not how the Sunbow chart goes, but between the inconsistent depictions in the cartoon and the way everyone seems to be similar in height in the comics to me 80% of the Transformers should be about MP car sized, with some smaller guys like Bumblebee and some bigger guys like Prime and Megatron.

    Hardly my best shots ever but you get the idea of the differences, the backpack is definitely compressed.
    I'm interested at this point, especially if it matches mpp-10 quality wise.

    Hidden in the shins maybe, or just folded away better.

    I also forgot to say I hope they fix the bloody ankles, as mine falls over if a mouse sneezes in the garden.

    nice...the backpack makes a big difference...Now if he can only make the chest to be recessed instead of protruding like that and it will be awesome

    That's actually a super easy fix.

    Just crush up some antihistamines and sprinkle it on some cheese. Put it out in the backyard and that'll clear up the mouse sneezing issues real quick. Voila!! No more falling Hot Rod.

    Interesting - definitely looks like they've kept the rear wheels and more in the legs so the backpack can fold up more compact - I always kinda wondered why the original didn't do that. Split up the hood chest to give it some shape too. Looks really nice. Wonder if any impact to alt mode?

    Looking pretty good. I'm digging the mods I see, I'd love to see some WIP shots too.
