This Rodimus figure won't be for everyone. For one, it retails for $400, and for two, it is non Transforming. But nothing stops us from checking out these pretty awesome pictures from Flame Toys. While it is the IDW Rodimus design, it uses lots of elements from other Hot Rod / Rodimus versions like the bow from Animated and the fishing pole from the G1 movie. That fishing pole is also a sword.

Here are all the details:
Retail price : US$400
Sale : around December, 2022
Size : 23 cm height
Material : ABS, PVC, POM, Diecast
Product description :
– 5 LED units. Eye, chest, 4 shoulders have light-up function!
– With outer armors to become Rodimus Prime!
– Linkage articulation gimmicks!
– Super-poseable with diecast parts for solidity and heaviness!
– You will get a powered lightning bow as bonus parts if ordering from www.d4toys.com, official shop SEN-TI-DEN, Amiami in Japan or Flame toys event.


This was revealed on the Flame Toys Facebook page.

Between this, the UltimetalS, and MDLX figures, I've had to reevaluate just how big a Rodimus fan I am. I'll probably only get the MDLX.

If didn't know who Rodimus is,I would assume he transforms into jet or starfighter.

We've known about this one for a while, but it doesn't look any less awesome. i would be lying if I said I wasn't really interested in this. this design remains the best Rodimus design.

I mean, it looks fantastic. But considering the price, the fact that it doesn’t transform, and looks nothing like the actual Rodimus Prime character; I have to wonder who this figure is actually for.

Not Rodimus Prime, just Rodimus. The base figure is how Hot Rod looks later in the IDW comics after adopting the name Rodimus. The extra parts are unique to this figure but seem to be reminiscent of Cyberverse Bumblebee for some reason.

They already made a model kit.

Hasbro will never make a figure themselves in this design so even though these don't transform they will sell to fans of the designs that can afford them.

So far, only 3P made a transformable figure of that Rodimus. I bought one of them. Clearly not worth the 150$CAN it cost me, but interesting nonetheless.

That is my personal favorite Rodimus design. It's so good.

I got the kit, still need to build it, and I love this version too, especially with all the optional armor bits

Are you refering to this?

At one point, Rodimus looked like that in the IDW comics

Ah, so it originated from the movie style designs that few people like to talk about, no wonder why I didn't recognize it.

You might have forgotten about this one but the rather controversial Flame Toys Windblade model kit has since come out and several reviewers who usually don't review Transformers toys are giving their take on it. This toy has had quite the crossover appeal since it is also a model kit and the design is more in line with a sexier design we see in different Japanese statue and toy lines aimed at older collectors. Even the face is far more stylized and doll-like than mechanical, and that goes for the rest of the model. We have two video reviews for you below. This is a hot toy (no pun intended) and it has garnered a lot of attention so if you want to be in the know, you can check the videos out below.

I'm getting it some Gundam markers since the stickers kind of suck.

Both those videos were annoying!

It’s a great model kit. Get one, you won’t be unhappy with it. Just get a stand for it too as it’s not too stable.

If anyone have the Windblade kit on hand and built, I'd love to see good pictures.

I kinda regret voiding my preorder at Age 3 & Up. I found her expensive at 70$CAN plus taxes and shipping, but now she's 100$+ everywhere...

The thing I really hate when ordering anything from BBTS is that I always, ALWAYS get hit by customs and I must go far to an unusual post office to get my package. But if I buy only her and the box is small....

Can I risk it? :-?

Oh F it, I will. If I'm spared of customs, I'll be saving around 15$CAN than if I'd bought it from A3&U. If not, I'll pay 10$CAN more. Not too shabby when you think about it.

I finally bought her from BBTS and she's on her way. Fingers crossed for no custom fees.

I also found out that there's a second shipment of her coming to stores so that batch is on preorders.

I have Amazon.com

You'll have to post pics when she's built up Kanrabat!

Oh I will!
This reminds me that I still have to build the Bumblebee that I bought... last year...
