He looks better than I imagined he would.

And uh...the gold Fort Max... Lucky Draw? Potential signs of a reissue??

Motto: "Don't do drugs, beer's cheaper anyway!"
Seibertron.com member "Autobot032" has noticed that ACToys has a thread running with images from this years Cybertron Con, a Transformers convention. The images how us fun memories of the past, toys of the present and Toys of the future such as the highly anticipated Master Piece Rodimus Prime!
We have mirrored the Masterpiece Rodimus pictures:

It is rumoured that this figure is in fact the Hot Rod robot and has the ability to combine with parts from it's trailer to form Rodimus Prime, this is however just a rumour and cannot be confirmed at this point.

For the rest of the images just click here!

You could also check out the news about the pre-order for this figure by clicking here.

So it seems as though the figure itself is the front cab and wheel assembly that runs the length of the vehicle mode, and the storage container acts as the transforming base.

That's pretty nice, though I do wish the cab front looked a little less...awkward.


I don't see this being a double figure in any possible way or form. I don't imagine this'll be both Hot Rod and Rodimus.

It might be, look at the legs, you can see the inner side of the left leg and it kinda looks like there is a smaller thinner leg inside. Plus Mach dropped the information that it would be a double figure, and so far 90% of what he said has already been confirmed as true or has also been rumoured by other reliable places.

I dunno, I saw that but pretty much figured his legs were formed similar to MP Grimlock's in that alt parts folded inside a faux leg casing. Don't get me wrong, I'd be joyous if he is a double figure (also sad since I'll need to buy two) as well as impressed, but I don't see it yet.


Admittedly, these are really dodgy pictures at the moment. Will have to wait til decent bot mode images come out. And preferably alt mode images where his alt mode ass doesn't look HUGE and out of place.

It would make sense that he could be both Hot Rod and Rodimus Prime. The price actually fits too.

It's inevitable that he'll come to the US at some point, question is, what will he go for then?

Looking at the base, I'd say there's no way it can do any other transforming than "folding up" into the trailer mode, just as with the original. There are no other seams to be seen there. The undercarriage part of the trailer might be able to do more, though.

I'm awaiting further pics of the prototype, which seems to be present there.

That's the Lucky Draw Fort Max release back during RID I think.

Edit:
Actually no it isn't, Lucky Draw Max was the RID version just with all accessories! Updating article.

Looks cool. Gonna be so much Hot Rod/Rodimus love this year!

Please, please, please reissue Fort Max. Oh yes!


Oh, and it does look to me like the figure will separate into Hot Rod (without the trailer). I'd guess that's why the pipes on the trailer just peg into the pipes on the car part. Granted it could just be for integration of robot mode/winnebago mode, but I don't expect so. Plus didn't we hear at Botcon or somewhere that the figure would be able to be both Hot Rod & Rodimus Prime?

Whether the car section looks any good as Hot Rod is another question though.

The alt mode looks a bit disappointing but still very model. Though there really is only one thing about it that bugs me.

It's as if the spoiler isn't brought forward enough on top of the cab, as if they didn't clip it farther when it seems to look like it can based on the little grove on the top.

I hope its just a mis-transformation, because it just looks weird, the spoiler is way too hidden, and too much of the plain roof is showing.

If you look at the robot mode, you can clearly see a wheel inside his leg. That could indicate that this will have a seperate vehicle mode. I like the look of this masterpiece and I am glad that it has a proper trailer and not a cardboard on like Convoy.

I'm liking that. Hopefully it really is able to be both characters and vehicles. Real curious what the Lucky Draw looking Max is all about too. I'd be down for a Fort Max reissue. I've got Brave already but he could use a brother. Especially if he were to have all his bits.

No the Robot Masters Cybertron Base was the exact same toy as Brave Maximus, the only difference being that the weapons and accessories that where missing from the RID release where included.

There is no way that trailer "combines". This is Rodimus Prime. Normal, regular Rodimus Prime. As expected.

I can't beleive I didn't notice that. My first thoughts are, no hot rod conversion. But now looking at it, they could just remove the lower portion of the shin, as it is it looks like it's masking something, and a head change would do the rest. The body, apart from face and lower legs, could be either hot rod or rodimus.

Now if you look carefully, the hood of the car, looks nothing like rodimus's chest, So the wheel that appears to be in the calf are could actualy be the wheel from the front of the vehicle mode, meaning the legs are up front, and all the body parts are hidden under the trailer, a reversal of how g1 was. As the wheels in the shoulder look more decorative than actual working wheels. I'm probaly totaly wrong here.

There just seems alot of transforming parts in areas not needed, so hopefuly a hot rod conversion, but I'd want a hot rod car too. But that asks a question, woyuld they hold such a feature back at this stage?

Who said that the whole trailer combines, parts of it are supposed to do it, not the entire thing.
