New images of painted version of Masterpiece MP-09 Rodimus Convoy has surfaced as yfrog user GENgoraw has posted some images of the toy.
All the images are from the Takara display booth over at Chara Hobby.
With these images, we finally confirm that MP-09 is either a Hot-Rod as well as it is Rodimus Convoy.

And after seeing this, I have no doubt that Hasbro would excise the trailer to keep costs low and still bring it to us, but without the trailer, the toy itself is truly incomplete.

Yes, I realize it's Hot Rod in both vehicle and robot mode, and that the robot mode can replicate the Rodimus look with a few tweaks here and there, and you can market it like that, and people will buy...but...

It's just incomplete without the trailer. If he can't do all of what he was intended to do, then you're doing yourself a disservice by buying a neutered Masterpiece Rodimus.


exactly like mp prime us version was released without trailer in us, mp megatron, & thundercracker, magnus here in us weather hasbro will or ever release thos guys here in us is bigger question & dont give me that lies that someone could mp megatron to rob store anyone thinks mp megatron in gun mode is real is an idiot mp megatron in gun mode 3, 5 times size of human hand ornage barrle or not looking at size of him in gun mode you can tell its fake.

speaking of that who is going to release mp magnue armor to us takara, hasbro, i dont care who could be 3rd partie companies all i care all other mp characters are complete except for magnus & magnus is & was always better leader than rodimus how does he get the short end of deal?

I have to admit, I was skeptical, but that's pretty nice. Not sure yet if it is $200 nice. The car mode may be kinda mis-transformed, it looks kinda lumpy, but the fact that it makes all 4 modes is pretty awesome.

That Hot Rod alt mode is actually all I wanted. It's back on the buy list!

It appears to be Hot Rod in car mode. The picture with the cab has a shorter window and hood. Which one doe you get ??? Or does it come with interchangable parts to change from Hot Rod to Rodimus ???

I noticed from the last set of pictures that the robot mode's chest didn't become the Rodimus Prime/space winnebago's hood, so was holding out real hope for the Hot Rod alt more as well. Now we see that the toy's capable of both alt modes, and it seems, a little variation between Hot Rod and Rodimus Prime robot modes as well (I'm guessing a "standing on tippy-toes" action feature)

The leg articulation looks to be minimal. Maybe the front part of the waist is a large flap that can move as one peice to allow for more articulation .... hope it is anyhow.

I think someone pointed at the shoulder articulation too. The kibble in the back seems to interfere with straight forward posing. Hopefully I'm wrong about that.

Still, this looks like an awsome MP. I don't think I'd have liked Hot Rod or Rodimus alone, but as one toy it definately works!

The Rodimus Prime hood is just covered partially by the window. It seems to become the same chest in both modes.

Oh my god it's beautiful. Brings a tear to my eye. I have to make one of these my cellphone wallpaper now.

I believe people are hypothesizing that the cab window and hood fold out from under the trailer to fit over top of the actual car hood and roof.

Oooo.... That's got me hard. This could be my first MasterPiece. Don't usually bother given the price of them. Yes, I have seen the price of this one ;oP

The front of the Hot Rod alt mode and the front of the Rodimus Prime convoy do not match up.

No, they don't. Neither does the front of either vehicle mode and his robot chest plate. Not entirely, anyway. I'm wondering if the two small pieces of bonnet that flank the engine fold away for truck and robot mode.

if you look close the window lifts up to go over the engine and the back roof part slides up that is why the spoiler is so far back in rodimus mode to give it the rodimus truck convoy mode

Apart from the face change and the thighs extending down from thhips is there anyother difference in the 2 robot modes?

Awesome! Want!
I love the fact that it can be both Hot Rod & Rodimus Prime.
