It can't be denied, 2010 is shaping up to be the year of the Rodimus. With countless releases, mainly from Takara, we get another look at their version of Animated Rodimus. If Diem's photos left your mouth watering, the gallery from our friend Alfes 2010 will finish off the job. Comparing to Hasbro's version of Rodimus Minor, which you can see in the Seibertron.com galleries, Takara gives Rodimus a metallic magenta feel. Check him out below!

Ya know. I kinda dig this paint scheme. Reminds me a lot of the comics' coloring of Hot Rod.

I love his vehicle mode but I'm not really diggin' robot mode. His face looks...weird.

I was thinking the same thing. Is he...PURPLE? And don't start on me about alternative colors. There are 9 colors: Black, Purple, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Grey, Red, and White. As a male, I refuse to acknowledge the existance of colors like fuschia, beige, cream, maroon, and lavender. Those are, respectively, red, white, white, red, and purple. 8) And this Rodimus is purple.

Magenta? Yes, that's the technical term for it. Purple? You bet your ass that's what it is.

I think I'll pass on this one.

He looks like a chimp.

He needs to have more of a pinkish hue to the coloring. It'd be more accurate to the G1 color scheme (which is what they're trying to replicate here) and this just ain't hittin' the mark.

Sure does make me want that Masterpiece Rodimus more and more, though.

I think the paint job looks beautiful. Can't afford this one though.

BBTS says mine is in stock and ready to ship. Have not found it at any local TRU, so this will have to be it. Love the vehicle mode, mixed on bot mode, but this is for my son anyway, and he'll love it.

That's what I was thinking of doing but since the first pics of Takara's version I think I'll just pass on the figure completely if I can't find Hasbro's version, I don't want to do that but if it happens it happens.

Keep him in car mode. The robot mode really sucks...

Much like Henkei Cyclonus he looks weird unless you see him in person. He looks amazing when you have him there in front of you.

Takaras version looks alot better than Hasbro's, but this line is a pass for me

So glad I got Hasbro's version. Not impressed at all by what Takara has done with most of the Animated toy line. The main exceptions being Skywarp, Megatron and Blackout. Otherwise I'll stick with Hasbro.

Naw, he's literally lilac color. Not cool, IMO. Get the new 3-pack version.

These photos just need color correction. He is actually a deep glossy red with metallic flakes. His color is darker red than the Hasbro version and over-all he looks almost burgundy in color compared to the purplish hue in these photos.

BBTS has my Takara Rodimus. I'll do comparison pics once I get it in the next couple of weeks after I have my pile of loot shipped.
