    Not sure how I feel about the head. The body looks pretty good, though.

    I have no interest.

    The only way they can get me to buy a new Rodimus figure is if it has an integrated winnbago transformation like Leader UM.

    Those are some gigantic shoulders there.
    It looks like a cross between Animated and the Classics version.
    Not bad, but not something I'll search for.
    Whelp, that's another one from this line not interesting me much.
    Bummer.

    Just noticed- pinned wheels. Not clip-ons.

    The people complaining about MP-ape-arms-28 are gonna complain about this guy's arms too. For me its still the face sculpt. I'll still buy him nonetheless, and hopefully one of the other titan masters will make him look more Rodimus-esque.

    look at those pipes on the arms! the chunky altmode! no idw spikyness! the brilliant colour scheme!

    this is a worthy successor to classics hot-rod and once the third parties come out with some heads that don't have the legs at the back he'll be perfect!

    Less IDW styled than I was expecting. May have to get this. His aesthetic will work better with CW Magnus and Co.

    Kinda weird the wheels are molded in grey and the black is painted.

    He does look pretty bulky around the soldiers but overall not bad. Looks very G1 all right so I think should there be a Rodimus Prime that will have the IDW infulences.

    Well yeah I'm obviously not talking about this figure. This isn't for me.

    Hey that's pretty okay. Diggin' the vehicle mode at least. And hey, it looks to have proper articulation.

    Well, its not that bad. I may skip MP28 and just buy the S3 guys in TR. The S3 guys besides Magnus and maybe Galvatron don't have to be MP so long as they invoke the G1 look and feel. So, just need a less IDW and more G1 Springer, although he will suffice for now. Scourge, HR and Blurr look damn good in this line especially from Takara.

    So, just the Autobot original G1 Headmasters, PM Prime, Wheelie, Blurr, HR and Scourge so far... gonna save some money with TR, not that I don't like them...just don't need them.
