    Hey, anyone know if Wreck Gar's loose-ish waist is a normal thing?

    Grimlock is really good, I don't think any SS86 figure will ever top him. Now to get a sword for him.

    I want to buy SS Hot Rod, but I have a question regarding this figure, does he have the upgrades to turn into Rodimus?

    SS86 Hot Rod and Kingdom Rodimus Prime are two different figures.

    I’m not sure I’m the best one to answer that. I have Hot Rod and I’m leaning against getting Rodimus. I hope others opinion as well. @Dachande

    Hot Rod is very good in both modes, has an engaging transformation, and has fantastic articulation. He’s the best Hot Rod and I can’t imagine how we could ever see one better. But you are paying a Voyager price for a deluxe plus accessories.

    Rodimus has an independent, Hot Rod-like car mode as well as attaching to the trailer. He looks good in both modes and has the benefit of hand articulation. But you’re paying a Commander price for him. I wish he had more paint, that the car fit into the trailer further, and that the car windshield looked a bit better. He’s good, but I can see how a better Rodimus could be done in another ten years.

    They are very similar in Transformation yet 2 completely different Toys.
    I have Both and in hand I couldn’t dream of picking one over the other.
    Hotrod is small his Transformation is a bit complex. He’s so much fun.
    Rodimus is Bigger so the transformation is easy.
    It boils down to which character you like best. If your an Optimus forever person get Hotrod. (Im a complete collection guy gotta have them all)
    If you Love the 86 Movie or the UK comics with Rodimus as Prime. Get Rodimus he’s a lot of fun a definitely a Prime.

    Both have their merits and faults, but even with how much I enjoy Rodimus, I think Hot Rod is a bit more fun.

    For me, this line is like a dream come true. Apart from G1, it is the only line (or subline) where I really want each figure from. Brilliant. I mean, a line dedicated entirely to my favorite movie of all time (yes it was, and still is), it could not be otherwise, for me.

    Reposting these from the favourite figure of the day thread because Wreck-Gar is awesome!

    By far the best use of the included background since Studio Series began, I thought it was Photoshop at first.
