From his appearance at Tokyo Comic Con (which took place from December 1st to 3rd) and via Twitter users @7777_diver and @MASABON2011, we have a couple more images to share of Takara Tomy's upcoming Masterpiece MP-40 Targetmaster Hot Rodimus! The figure, shown off next to other Masterpiece figures including the recently-released and upcoming MP-12+ Sideswipe and MP-39 Sunstreaker respectively, sports the same deco seen in previously-released images.

The first photo appears to depict his colors as skewing closer to the last release of the mold rather than the darker maroon that MP-40 has been previously shown to be, but it's almost certainly just the lighting or contrast in that one image, as the second photo seems to show the more commonly advertised colors from this release. If you were wondering how MP-40's deco is expected to stack up against the previous version, MP-28, check out the comparison images from August this year!

Check out the images of the figure below, and take in all its glory in two surprisingly different sets of lighting! Seeing these images, do you have any more thoughts on how MP-40 stacks up against MP-28, or just how it stands as a toy on its own? Let us know in the Energon Pub!

Yes. He’s based completely off the AKOM animation from Rebirth...something that was never released in Japan. Even down to the windshield crotch.

It’s honeatly kind of amazing.

It's worth mentioning that the Japanese dub of The Rebirth uses the US names for most characters, not the pre-established Japanese ones. In this case, Hot Rodimus was simply called Hot Rod (ホットロッド Hotto Roddo), something not reflected in the MP if I may add.
