    You're telling me they couldn't pull a CW Megatron and give us a sticker sheet? I'm still buying him but still.

    Still need Slug, Swoop, Rodimus, and Optimus, but this is indeed a welcome sight!  Been excited for it!  Now to see if my local stores will even carry him...

    When was the last time that a Shattered Glass series figure was put out at mass retail?

    I mean, come on. Just about every Shattered Glass figure was an exclusive.

    Any photos what the "Hot Rod" version of this Rodimus Unicronus looks like?
    Does it have mustache as well?

    I understand why ppl are bummed about the con symbol but honestly it doesnt ruin the figure and it seems instead of just going to put a sticker over it, ppl have to complain about it... get over it, its a T-O-Y for KIDS, not adults. And when has hasbro done ANYTHING for the fans?

    The Matrix of Chaos is okay, but I would\'ve prefered if they just call it, the Dead Matrix.

    But isn't the "dead matrix" in the thousands of Nemederp Primes?



    Yes, I'm tired of that repaint. :lol

    For real? My goodness.
    Here in our territory, Rodimus Prime pegwarms on big stores.
    What went flying off shelves is Optimus Prime.

    I just hope this means Deluxe Snarl and Sludge are close to being released.

    While I can understand SG fans (albeit trivial, imo) disappointment, it still is obviously a SG Rodimus homage at the end of the day.

    Either way, this holds zero interest for me. After decades of Blue Prime - White Prime - Black Prime, Yellow Bee - Red Bee - Goldbug, 6 or 7 rainbow seekers, etcetera etcetera there is no way I'm jumping on the Bizarro Rodimus train. Or any other "Evil Autobot" repaint money grab schemes.

    My TR Megatron got spray painted silver and slapped with a 'Con symbol like our all knowing Heavenly Father Primus intended gor rammit! *end rant*

    Anyone have this in hand and know if there's any qc flaws with it? Stress marks? Heard some Rodimus Prime samples have stress marks

    Someone in Cali posted battleslash on eBay. Maybe we’re getting wave 2 early?

    Huh. That one actually has both the SG symbol on the chest and then the regular Decepticon symbol on the arm. So even at that late point, there seemed to be some discrepancy.

    Well the devastator set is not really a kids toy. And there is a lot of homage.
    The legends size figures are rocksolid.
    Hasbro makes more money off kids. Thats a fact. Basically kids don't really care for cartoon accuracy. Did you as a kid? Ever seen Ironhide?
    And tbh I have transformers like windsweeper guzzle and fuzzle never been in the g1 cartoon. I know many kids had those. My point is kids know transformers and simply look for the legit stamped transformers and do not care all that much if thry all showed up on tv.
    That said for us older fans perhaps we should pipe down a bit. Let the kids enjoy their vulcanicus and decepticon Rodimus. I celebrate each time a kid grabs a transformer or points at one at the store.
    Means Transformers will be there for another 5 decades. And then they get to complain when they are older about masterpiece rescuebot optimus pime. Won't that be amazing if Transformers is still around when we are to old to even remember.
