While Botcon took over last week-end for Transformers news, there was another toy show happening in Brazil and a new Platinum set was revealed. This set is called Rise of Rodimus Prime and is a rerelease of Titanium Rodimus Prime and Universe Galvatron. This set commemorates the showdown at the end of the Transformers Movie where Hot Rod holds up the matrix and becomes Rodimus Prime and even comes with a matrix. Sadly, it doesn't seem that this Rodimus toy can hold the matrix.

Check out the pictures below from Transformers Diorama and let us know what you think!

Oh good, two toys people hate in a convenient, easy-to-not-want box.

Really? Titanium Rodimus? Universe Galvatron isn't so bad, but TITANIUM RODIMUS?! I know, not much else to choose from, but still... :BANG_HEAD:

Id like to see that titanium mold in plastic. The titanium figs are cool but often lop sided and terribly unbalanced.

Titanium Rodimus was one of the better molds to come out of that line. Yes, he's sort of hollow chested in robot mode, but he has a decent transformation, and holds together well. Which is more than I can say for other titanium molds.

I think it was the only Rodimus option they had, but its not really as bad as they say. That Galvatron, had more issues than Roddy ever had.

It's a match made in mediocre mold heaven!

At first I had no idea what Hot Rod I was looking at; I was all like "wait, is that just an extremely good deco of the Classics version? I heard it's not a great toy but hey, this could work - actually, is it a new mold? Are we getting this later in the year and I don't even have to pay a ton for it like Brainstorm?! Damn, this is--"
And then I cried for a good 20 minutes when I found out it was Titanium Rodimus. GG/10 boxset everyone would want; a toy from one of the more infamously bad lines and an infamously bad toy from a good toyline. What even is happening who made this decision

Well I like both those toys, and I like those decos. If I saw this set on clearance, I'd be very tempted to pick it up.

I'm gonna skip this set and probably get MP-28 with TR voyager Galvatron. They scale better too.

It's the anniversary of the 1986 Movie, and Hasbro probably just did what they could with available molds. There really isn't another official toy outside of G1, Titanium, and Masterpiece. I do like someone else's suggestion that they should just have released the G1 molds as an Encore style in movie accurate colors...

That's the best idea there is!

Their only other option would be the Energon versions for both (with the smaller Energon mould used for Galvatron). And those have their own problems.

That said ... I kinda wish they did use the smaller Energon Galvatron mould redecoed into actually good colours. It's not perfect by any means, but I think it's work better than the tank version.

But both of these moulds are okay. Mediocre is just the right word.

Titanium Rodimus looks better painted here but it's still a lousy toy (the only Titanium figure I bought)

Have they changed any of the colours on that galvatron?

I don't hate that mold as much as some but it does sting to think what it could of been like if he wasn't moved down a size class.
