I can't say that MP Roddy is a "watered down" version of this at all, though. In fact, MP Roddy tops it a little in that Roddy never needed armor to become Rodimus Prime and always needed the trailer to become his vehicle mode.
Nevertheless, this is a set I'm looking forward to!
I think that when people were talking about a "watered down" MP Roddy, they meant that they would spend the money on this FP release of Protector and wait for the anticipated "Hot Rot" Masterpiece that Hasbro may release in the US as an exclusive; this MP Hot Rod (or maybe just "Rodimus") would be a "watered down" MP Roddy because it would come without the Rodimus Prime trailer.
That's how I read the comments.
