That is glorious! I am about to drown myself for saying that of a Rodimus figure, but I can't help it!

It does indeed homage SG Rodimus quite well!


Damnit! Now I want it. :BOOM:

I preordered him at BBTS for $75.00, but it looks like they raised the price to $85.00 at some point and now it's sold out.

Riddle me this. If a character is already black... what colour do they repaint him?

-sigh- It was bound to happen. :lol: But I do like the colors on him. Especially the Decepticon logo on his torso. Wasn't expecting that. :lol:

I am having all kinds of dirty, sexual thoughts regarding this figure. How much will he cost me? Less than a hooker, right?

that's gorgeous. I am so very tempted. If RK gets it for less than a bill I think i'm going to cave. Only complaint I have is the face, it shouldn't be so shiny in my opinion. But still all sorts of win. :KREMZEEK: :APPLAUSE:

I don't see the appeal in this one. From a standpoint of just looking at it through Animated, he has no point.

If I look at it in terms of design, the original is better. This is one of the worst black repaints I've seen in a few years.

I'm not a fan of this either. Which is good, because I can't afford it anyway.

Well, I was once propositioned by a literal 2$ Hooker, I have had some interesting encounters with Hookers (I wrote about them in my blog, which is here: http://nuclearconvoy.blogspot.com/)

Dear Japan,

Stop getting cool Animated stuff that my country doesn't. It makes me jealous.

Oh, and thank you for Nintendo and Pokemon.

you know. concidering the endless amount of clear and black repaints it would be nice if even just a FEW of them leaked their way into american retail.

while its obnoxious to have hundreds of them i feel like none of them ever make it to target.
