Does anyone have any idea how tall he is, in both Hot Rod & Rodimus Prime modes?


Does this help?

That does look very nice. This beats FP's Protector in the awesome catagory and I absolutily adore the protector.

Anyone want to bet the supposed extra Accesory which comes with the english release is going to be the fishing rod. :grin:

Alfes 2010 has updated his blog again. This time with MP Rodimus Prime parts 4, 5 and 6. These galleries focus on Rodimus Prime and his alt modes. We get some nice comparison shots with MP Prime, G1 Rodimus Prime, Hot Rod and Rodimus vehicle mode and robot modes and a few shots of the differences in MP Prime's Matrix and Rodimus Prime's Matrix. The guns, saw and arc welder are stored in the trailer. Check out a sample of the images below and all the images here at the blog.

Part 4 Vehicle Mode
Part 5 Robot Mode
Part 6 Battle Station Mode

The magic died on me when they showed the front of Rodimus' vehicle mode is a clip on piece and not part of the transformation. I think I can now wait for Hasbro's Version and pick this up down the road. :/

I'm a little dissappointed how small his Matrix is, especially when he looked so good holding the bigger one in the other pics. Oh well, Rodimus still looks great overall, and his despite the size, his Matrix still looks good stored inside of him.

Its just a thought, but - maybe the Rodimus Prime mode(s) were an after-thought on the toy? They design Hot Rod transformation, then come up with the extra faceplate, and then come up with a way of allowing for the winnebago.

I am hoping the Hasbro release will have something awesome, like a Wheelie figure included. :D

You know what, that would be pretty cool. Maybe he could be around Scout sized, that would make for a nice little extra, and it would also go great with Grimlock. On the other hand though, I think a large scaled Firebolt would be a great bonus accessory to go with Rodimus and would probably fit a bit better together. Hasbro could always just release a Scout sized Wheelie somewhere down the road.

I thought he'd be in scale with Optimus Prime...
Other than that, the figure looks awesome...
I'll wait for the Hasbro version and then check whats the better deal.

After this release, i just hope that third party transformer makers do something bout the height of Rodimus Prime. I wish they will include an add on for his feet to make him as tall as MP Optimus Prime

Why? He was never as tall as Prime, nor was he intended to be. Optimus and Megatron have always towered over their underlings.

Never watched Headmasters, couldn't tell ya. Not to mention, scale in G1 was all over the place.

I said he'd be short but oh no, someone said the price point suggested largeness and I pointed out he cost the same as Grimlock so wouldn't be any taller and I was shot down but now we see that I was right :roll:

I never understood how the Hot Rod vehicle mode configured into Rodimus' truck mode. It's pretty neat how they figured it out!

I'm starting to regret ordering it now.

There are multiple reports of problems.

They are:

-Paint chipping from transformation and gimmick usage.

-Wing being scratched from insertion and removal from trailer. (A really, really tight fit.)

-He's incredibly fiddly, maybe even more than Megatron (though not as fragile) and if you don't line him up just right, his wheels won't touch the ground and he wobbles in vehicle mode along with the back of his head and his codpiece scraping along since they sit on the bottom of the vehicle mode.

-No matter how you transform him, he suffers from Protector's vehicle mode problem. The middle set of wheels never touch ground, just the front and rear sets.

-The slot in the palm of his hands just barely grips the rifle handles and if you wrap his fingers around it, the gun will either fall out completely, or sit there very loosely.

-And worst of all...someone posted a pic of the right forearm on their Rodimus, and the flap that allows the hand to rotate...BROKE OFF. That's right, broke off.

I'm starting to be really concerned here. Nothing I can do about it now, since it's bought and paid for, except hope that I got a good one coming from BBTS. *sighs*

I suspect that the problems with the Rodimus trailer are connected to my theory that it is merely a clever after-thought of having designed Hot Rod.

Also - why is anyone surprised about Takaras QC? Nearly every Takara figure I've ever owned has had QC problems.

To be fair, you are right, but it's definitely bitchworthy when you're hitting $200.00

I had an order running for MP09 Rodimus with HLJ, to be shipped with the March wave of United figures, but this morning finally decided I had to cancel the order, based on all the negative feedback and based on my own lack of enthusiasm for Hot Rod as a character in any way, shape or form.

Looks beautiful but I want to see what Hasbro do with him first or until TRU Japan discount the price down to around 10,00 JPY (around $120) which they did with MP Grimlock, Optimus Prime, Megatron, Ultra Magnus and the Seekers. (no, I didn't buy them all but I wanted to!).
