THE LOWER LEGS LOOK LIKE THEY CHANGE TOO. IF HE WAS SHORTER WITH A YOUNG FACE THAT WOULD MAKE A HOT ROD. THE WHEELS IN THE SHOULDER ARE NOT THE FRONT WHEELS, THE FRONT WHEELS ARE IN HIS LOWER LEGS AS THE SHOLDER PORTION IS ONE PIECE, LOOK AT THE VEHICLE MODE THERE IS CLEARLY A SPLIT JUST AFTER THE FRONT WHEEL ARCH. AND THE HOOD OF THE VEHICLE MODE IS ON HS BACK. SO THE SECOND SET OF WHEELS ARE EITHER FOR DECORATION - OR A HOT ROD VEHICLE MODE.
THANK YOU FOR THE CLARIFICATION!!!!
Sorry, anytime I see all caps it makes me think someone is yelling in frustration. I'll be very interested to see more pictures and see if he turns out to be a triple/quad changer.
Maybe he was yelling in frustration. That's kind of how I feel about this toy at the moment. I'll reserve final judgement until we learn definitely whether or not it has a Hot Rod mode as well as the paint job scheme which at this point would have to be truly amazing and something unique/special in order to wow me.
I guess I'm really surprised that the flames aren't molded into his chest and trailer. Why would this be? The only reason i can think of is if they were going to reuse this mold for something else later down the road. However, this IS Rodimus Prime so I don't know how you reuse this mold.
Very lackluster and unexciting. I wasn't really that thrilled with Masterpiece Grimlock (though that was partially because of the insane and unnecessary initial markup in his price that was obviously unjustified considering his TRU price being the same as Starscream and Skywarp) but I feel like even that toy was leaps and bounds better than what I'm seeing here with MP Roddy.
Show us the gimmicks! That's got to be what makes this toy cool, right?
I can understand everyone's frustration. I think it's really too early to hand out a "This thing sucks" judgement(not saying you are). It hasn't been officially announced. MP Starscream changed quite a bit between prototype and final product. Maybe they will mold the flames, maybe not.
I can't help it though, I'm a Rodimus/Hot Rod whore. They could paint a turd red and orange and put a spoiler on it and I'd probably think it's awesome
