In a fun change of pace, it is Takara who has revealed one of Hasbro's biggest Transformers releases of 2021.

This tweet posted images from Amazon Japan showing the upcoming Transformers War for Cybertron Kingdom Commander Class Rodimus Prime. This will be a very detailed action figure with more articulation than usual, like double jointed hands, which are features more typical of Transformers Masterpiece figures. He comes with a trailer which converts into a battle station just like the original G1 toy. Unlike the original G1 toy, the robot component does become a decent looking car. This will be around the $80 USD mark when released. Commander Class Rodimus Prime can be pre-ordered currently on Amazon Japan.

I kinda like it. Look pretty much like my perfect Rodimus Prime
Though, wasn't he supposed to come with a fishing rod??

Easy pass on the Rodimus, not so sure I'd pay the same price I paid for the evil potp version but at least it's an option for those who want him. Trailer really doesnt look advanced or enough for the money and the front of the car/windshield still looks off along with awkward placement within the trailer.

Definitely an instant pre-order. And that will never show up around here.

I've been tempering my expectations for this and hoping he would clear the bar for a good figure. But he looks great. Maybe now I won't have to shed a tear on his behalf every time I look at the POTP abomination on my shelf.

And the trailer is way better than the SiegeRiseDom Optimus trailer.

I think it was said somewhere that the rod was replaced by the Sword of Primus.


Speaking of which, Primus redeco when, Takara? Please and thank you.

He can do the "This is the end of the road, Galvatron!" finger pointing pose. I was in before, but now I'm all in. All for the fingers. :-D

Definitely getting Rodimus now. We can only hope the rumored Galvatron won’t be ruined... :PRAY:

I wish the car slotted back further into the trailer. As it is, the vehicle mode is much closer to the PotP design than to the G1 cartoon or toy. Since we got SS86 Hot Rod and the PotP also has a smaller car, I wish they had prioritized the combined vehicle mode over the other functions. Since I already have and intend to keep PotP Rodimus, I'm not as excited as I otherwise would be.

Setting aside those caveats, it's a nice looking bot. Looks like there's hand and index finger articulation. The colors and mold details are great. I'm not sure if it's worth $80, but I know I'll happily pay it.

Not that I usually care to that degree, but Rodimus has no gaps that I can see in any of the current photos.

I'd genuinely thought that they might be doing something kinda new with him because he was said to be toy inspired, so I assumed his "cab" mode would have been more like Kup where it's a pickup truck with a unique front end, and that would allow them to have the trailer sit properly against the cab area, but instead they went off of some frames from vey specific episodes.

I don't hate it, and kinda like the car mode, but I definitrly agree that it could have been better

Rodimus apparently comes with TEN blast effects and a Matrix.

Rodimus Prime looks absolutely incredible except for the windshield and yellow spoiler placement. Is it mistransformed or just a new design aesthetic for Rodimus? Everything else looks amazing. I love that they included the G1 trailer features. This trailer looks much better than the one that came with Optimus!

Before anyone gets too excited, some people on TFW pointed out that he comes with Omega/Sky Lynx's effects, so that's 7 parts, plus the Matrix effect from SS86 Hot Rod, and likely the other two effects as well

The bot mode looks great, much better than Hot Rod. The full alt mode looks decent. I was expecting to be more impressed by his trailer though, it's kinda... underwhelming. There are probably a couple more features in it that aren't pictured, though, so I'm not making any final judgements yet.

The position of the spoiler is correct, so I guess it's a new aesthetic. I'm okay with the 'discrepancy' because he nets a fully formed vehicle mode unlike the original.

It's a great looking toy to be sure, but it's definitely no CC. Curse Hasbro for putting an Airlock on the Trailer. But I am going to stand my ground on this one. The only reason I would get it is for that, (and I've passed on a couple other Airlock TF's already) and I'm not paying $80 for it. If I can't get it for a considerable discount, then I'll pass. So be it.

Well, I guess I'll have to set aside $80 bucks for the pre-order. He looks awesome in both modes. I now understand the car mode, and the battle platform looks good.

Assuming he comes with more accessories than just the sword and gun, (at least a Matrix is pretty much a given) the $80 is not that hard to swallow.

The only gripe is the lack of paint on the rims. But that is easily fixed with a silver sharpie.

At least I have time to save up the dough. Though shipping may be a bit painful for him. Hope Tracks and Tigatron show up at around the same time so I can ship the together.

I'm gonna need a bigger shelf for the HotRod / Radius display now.

This is where I am. For city building, the trailer actually really isn't that great. It would be a dead end for any road, at least that's what I'm telling myself now.

Not sure how I feel about this guy yet
I love the robot mode, especially the head sculpt
But the combined vehicle mode and battle platform just seem so underwhelming for a CC price point. I hope we get more info about accessories, features, and some size comparisons soon

I'm probably still gonna get him haha I just hope there's more bang for my buck
