I don't understand, did they mean that the current Masterpiece scale started with Rodimus Prime, or that they are working to improve Rodimus to fit better with the new toys?

I am pretty sure it means that the current scale started with Rodimus.

i think they meant the scale started with rodimus, but not hot rod... even theough technically rodimus is the right scale in robot and vehicle mode, hot rod is way out of scale. i think we just need new figures of both and call it a day...

Can someone point me to this Rodimus reference? I don't see it anywhere...

I think Rodimus Prime is fine as-is, but we could do with another Hot Rod
Only thing is they'd have to do some really interesting things with the transformation to make it worthwhile.

But anyway, these are looking amazing. Bring on the release!

I don't think they're actually referring to the scale of Rodimus, but rather "the new unified scale for MPs post-Rodimus", which is MP-10.

Just pre-ordered Smokescreen now that I have some room in my POL. All look great. Now I just need to find the space to display them all.

This should be a reference to alt modes as the robot modes for earlier MP's (excluding MP-1 and MP-5)such as grimlock and the seekers are of a good relative size(although depending on which comic/cartoon episode you're reading, you can argue that grim should be a good chunk bigger than OP). Mind you this should refer only to the autobot vehicle alt modes as all those vehicles are more or less on the same scale. As a T-rex grimlock should ostensibly be a good chunk bigger, and the seekers/soundwave and friends obviously are madly out of scale for their alt modes, although I find their robot forms scale pretty well. But giving allowances for rodimus being a alien space car, he is the first vehicle of the scale that the autobot MP's seem to have followed since.

It is funny to read their Google translated version. It does sound strange because of it. The translation is saying in scale starting with Rodimus. The second statement is saying that Prowl can fit inside MP10. There are two run on sentences missing punctuation in between. :D

He isn't an "alien space car", he's an Earth Winnebago from the far off future of 2005. If he was a space car he wouldn't have wheels, everyone knows that. :P

Hot Rod liked to fish for a day, but Rodimus liks to spend the whole weekend.

Many of the WFC/FOC TFs have wheels. ;)
