Toys'R'Us has announced their upcoming exclusive Masterpiece Rodimus will be available for purchase at this year's SDCC. Great news for those of you who will be attending the event and want to get your hands on this guy a little ahead of his official retail release.

Please note: This is NOT a SDCC exclusive. It will just be available for purchase there, the same as their Masterpiece Grimlock was.

TRANSFORMERS collectors can own the heroic Rodimus Prime in this re-creation of the classic G1 action figure! Best known as Optimus Prime's successor to the Autobot Matrix of Leadership, this fan- favorite character can transform into his Winnebago vehicle mode. Set includes a miniature ally, the Target-Master Offshoot, a buzz saw and the legendary Matrix of Leadership.

Thought we were told that this was going to be in the Toys R US stores by July??

Now it is going to be first released at SDCC as an exclusive during the show July 21st - July 24th.

So when can we expect this in our local Toys R US ?????

Well, there IS that whole week after...

My guess, TRU is getting them in, sending them along to SDCC, and they'll be on the trucks that week.

Winnebago? How about a sports car? No trailer included. And that's their own press release? Sheesh.

As far as the actual SDCC exclusives, they do the Monday following. How long they last is another story... Although this year's TF exclusive are pretty lame unless you're into packaging. Will be nice not having to fight with their slow ass site this year!

Glad to see Rodimus will be in stores shortly. I have to wonder which version he will be. I'm only curious because I've heard that the original had a lot of qc and design issues. Hope they fixed them at least for our release otherwise I would regrettably have to pass

Can we get a larger picture? And I'm also interested about that Platinum Master Chief they're coming out with. :x

Actually MP Rod IS an exclusive, it's just not an SDCC exclusive...which I was fully aware of, thanks. Which is also why I clearly stated THE ACTUAL SDCC EXCLUSIVES are available via the site the following Monday.

Nice. Everything is going as i hoped it would. This booth will be the first stop on preview night as MP Grimlock was last year. Chalk me up. Hope he's $50. Dunno why everyone's confused and debating about exclusives. He will be just as Grim was last year - a TRU exclusive being offered available early at EE booth. Bad part about last year, no real extra goodies/freebies came with purchase. Good part - I saw Steve Sansweet in line (the god of SW collecting) and chatted with him for a minute. Dunno what he was buying.

I can't wait for this to hit the stores. Looks awesome! Could you consider this one of the largest Targetmasters produced?
