Nice, nice. But I didn't reserve mine. What does the back story say? Curious to know how Black Rodimus is integrated into the Animated Universe.

Now he looks like a zombie monkey instead of just a monkey.

Just wait, eBay prices for this guy will be outrageous! I like my animated Rodimus Minor, and my RTS Rodimus. BTW Does the FP Protector Armor look good on the RTS Rodimus? Any Pics? :???:

The shades of red don't exactly match, and the yellow spoiler is no match for the orange extensions.

Since when? There's not much demand for a Black Animated Rodimus. If fans want to own the mold, they can go for the cheaper Hasbro version, and even then I feel that Takara's versions (Clear/Maroon) are a lot cooler than this figure. And where's the fiction? The figure doesn't even have a different name. It's not Wildrider. It's just Black Rodimus. At least Breakdown will have a different head. But this.. is.. boring.

Yeah, I'll get it. But not everyone will, and thus the eBay spike won't happen.

In almost all cases, adding "Black" to a Japanese name indicates evil clone and thus a new character. And the fiction is all contained in his bio. It's the same old story really, Megatron making a clone with an AllSpark fragment coupled with Starscream's clone creation technology, only for it to backfire once the clone decided he should be leader himself.

Moral of this Story: Never use anything Starscream, you may get usurped.

So is he a fourth faction then? Or goes rogue with Starscream? It's not like I'm losing my creativity and imagination, but it's hard to shelf all of these repaints and make everything make sense XD.

Just put him under "evil clone with ambitions" and be done with it. :P
