It looks like an awesome toy. I just wish they would've ditched the overly simplistic flame paint which has a ridiculous black border and the overly simplistic upper arms. I'm hoping Hasbro's version does it right.

The front of Rodimus is the rear of Hot Rod. Very clever solution. Hot Rod's front are inside the trailer.

Looks awesome, just hope it isn't so underscaled like Grimlock, god that was so disappointing when i got him.

He should be as big as an alternator in his regular carform at least and be near MP Prime's length in his Rodimus Prime botmode.

New Images Of MP-09 Rodimus Convoy Including Features!

Postby DevastaTTor » Fri Sep 17, 2010 7:51 am

Just a day after we brought you the first official images of the upcoming Takara Tomy Masterpiece MP-09 Rodimus Convoy/Rodimus (Hot Rod) figure, we get an amazing new look at what we'll get in January. Thanks to a number of online, Japanese retailers, we can now clearly see what the January 2011 figure will look like in great detail in both Rodimus (Hot Rod) and Rodimus Convoy (Rodimus Prime) modes. And thanks to Otacute.com, we get our first in-depth look at all the features and gimmicks that show all the thought and engineering that has gone into creating this Masterpiece.

The special features include:

A flip-around head gimmick similar to the MP Seekers
Telescopic goggles that slide down over his eyes
The Matrix of Leadership like the one included with MP Convoy/Prime
A large "leader" gun that be split into two smaller guns for Rodimus
Plasma welder and saw attachments for his arms
And amazing articulation for recreating some of the classic movie poses

All in all, this new Masterpiece figure looks like it will exceed fan expectations and be a very faithful rendition of the Rodimus character.

OH YES! Goggles, blade, AND Matrix! Wonderful! :D I'm actually grinning right now. Oh man, this could become my favorite TF. :)

I've been waiting for some high-quality pics too, so I can use them for my phone background.

Edit: Oh, no Hi-Res car mode? :(

I was going to say, it's pretty accurate to the cartoon, but I do agree they could've added more molded detail, at least.

I'm very impressed by the articulation potential of MP Rodimus. It can be posed in what appears to be a proper kneeling position! The price is the only thing holding me back on this figure.

I agree that simplicity of this the flame details and mold are a bit too G1 for even me, but the engineering that went into creating this figure makes it worth the price of admission.

Rodimus has always been one of my favorite transformers and I think, baring quality, I'll get this one.

But I think I might be the only one who can't tell the difference between Hot Rod and Roddy in bot mode.

Definitely. I can't wait for this. I'm more excited about this than Protector, and that says a lot.

I have no problem with the paintjob whatsoever. Yeah, it's a bit simpler than the ones preceding it in the line, but it doesn't matter, it fits Rodimus. The price is a bit up there, and I do want to see what Hasbro comes up with to counter it, but I don't think it will stop me from buying this in January. I haven't spent that much on either Grimlock or Prime (the 2 MPs I own) but for Teh Rod, I won't mind shelling out the bucks. So worth it.

Color me impressed. Very nice representation of the characters indeed.


Since Rodimus is one of my least favorite Autobots of all time, I will not be getting this.....but if you are a Rodimus fanboy, this piece is a requirement for you to own! The price-tag is steep, but with all the stuff involved with this figure, I can see it justified.
