    That G1 Rodimus prototype.....by the Gods, can you imagine that's what we got instead of the absolute rubbish that is the current Rodimus Prime? Even for G1, and a toy that's supposed to be a G1 Leader character, it's awful.

    Is it really that much of a difference? Looks to me it's just the size, plus instead of a battle base, you get a communications center, which seems strange for a leader character in battle.

    It still shits me to this day that we never got a G1 Arcee figure. While this would have been one sucky toy, This thing would have been right at home in the 1986 line-up:

    You mean this thing? For G2 standards, it would have fitted right in. I can only imagine what a Joe/TF Human Alliance Crossover would look like in the modern era...

    I dunno if this was even remotely real, but I heard some scuttlebutt way back in the day of a possible evil Protectobot set released during RiD to bolster the number of Decepticon toys. Would've loved to see that happen.

    If they had made Cosmos, I would pay $50 bucks for him. I think they just threw the prototype away for good, its a crime!
