I can tell you there are some improvements made to this figure since the photos we've seen. Firstly there is a SILVER faceplate, not gold. Looks great, though there are no paint apps on the eyes, and the photos on the box show both the gold faceplate and blue eyes. Secondly, the infamous CODPIECE has beeen toned down too, by having been squared and with grilling for detail. When you are that big, it needs some air, aye? It's still an issue, as it gives this figure a long torso and short legs. Legs are awkward all round, really hurting the look of the robot mode. Poseability is still very limited, but arms and general detail is very nice. All in all a touch more show accurate than G1 release, but a lesser toy as will be evidenced by the upcoming reissue. Much more plastic than die cast. Worth getting if you're a Soundwave/G1 fan.
No positive sightings of Rodimus Prime yet but him and Soundwave are packaged together as part of the same wave so Keep you eyes peeled! Be sure to post your sightings at the SEIBERTRON.com Sighting Section.
