    I got to say, this gives me a small hope that if Hasbro doesn’t do The Fallen DreamWave styled we may see it though this line, The Fallen was one of the biggest and most beautiful pieces that’s love to see transform.

    Never in my life that I'd expect to see an actual licenced 3PTF figure that transforms. But hot damn I need to know more about that Project M thing; with Yoji Shinkawa as designer that is almost a MGR:Revengeance sequel

    I'll wait for a definitive confirmation, but if these figures are made in collaboration with Flame Toys, comparable in size and build to the Kuro Kara Kuri line and also transform, a lot of people won't be happy about the price...Rodimus can easily be over $400.
    I'm especially curious about Predaking. Flame Toys recently did a combining Megazord but a proper Predaking with individual bot, individual beast and combined modes would be even more complex and, I fear, expensive. And probably even smaller than MPG Raiden.

    All I know of the IDW stuff is via Tumblr, so that universe in my head is very similar to a more graphic version of the Riverdale tv show, but also robots.

    I hope these aren't too expensive. (I will decide what 'too expensive' means after I find out the price.)

    The head/helmet is the worst part for me. Doesn’t really look like Hot Rod or Rodimus Prime. That being said they did a good job

    It’s in collaboration, not being made by them. Takara is the one releasing this.

    Remember, they don’t tend to license out transforming figures to anyone, they keep that in house between Takara and Hasbro.

    Not interested in any of this and initially rather dissapointed, but if this is not part of "our origin" there hopefully still is something Diaclone or Microchange coming.

    These look really nice and I'm happy for the fans.

    I'd imagine flame toys was behind the sculpt (bot mode is basically just a rehash of their kuro kara kuri sculpt), while Takara handled the transformation, and possibly the alt mode.

    Never cared for this design, or IDW\'s Rodimus as a character after Furman stopped writing him, so easy skip. There are such huge gaps in the alt mode it reminds me more of those V-Tech dinosaur Transformers toys...

    Call of the Primitives Predaking had a very stupid exaggerated design with a small head and super long legs and short arms, so turning that into a toy... odd choice. Predaking has always been bulky and imposing, and that one isn\'t. I wonder if it will be in scale to the other toys, aka gigantic? But I assume it won\'t transform, so of no interest to me.

    Can we split this thread into one for Rodimus and one for Predaking?

    This looks great

    A little too stylized for me though (this design, not the IDW one, which I like), and also probably way out of my price range lol (holding out hope for a mainline Voyager somewhere down the line)

    I really like the cut of his jib, the figure feels like a really neat marriage how the more heroic proportions Milne would draw Roddy and the more stylized approach of Roche. Still have a soft spot for early MTMTE, so while Flale Toys stuff is usually beyond what I'm willing to cough up for a toy, I'm tempted to make an exception, especially since the vehicle mode looks pretty good too. Accessories are cool too, though I don't remember him using anything other than his forearm canons in the comics (it's been ages since I've last read MTMTE). Maybe some swappable faces would be nice, like Rodimus' iconic "cool" smirk, maybe a Rodimus badge or two.

    You know it’s coming… “it doesn’t scale with my collection so I’m out”, “I only collect chug” or “I only collect G1” Lol

    hopefully I get it out of the system for those people!
