Check the Galleries:
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.

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