I hope that Rodimus is available on their website and not only in-store. The Toys'r'Us around here closed years ago…

EDIT:
Fans who are unable to attend the show can still purchase the exclusive Toys“R”Us San Diego Comic-Con merchandise online at Toysrus.com/comiccon2011 starting Thursday, July 21. However, there is a limited number of each item, so fans should visit Entertainment Earth at booth #2343 or Toysrus.com/comiccon2011 early to purchase the below action figures.

I'm still undecided about Hasbro's Rodimus Prime. I think I will wait for reviews of it before picking it up. I don't want to get burned like the Takara version. Lion-o and Raiden look good, I might look into getting those.

I'm beginning to wonder if MP Hot Rod will even be able to hold Offshoot. It's odd they haven't shown that off yet.

He has peg/hole in his palms yes? (I don't have the MP, didn't pay attention in gallery) In the photo above he's holding his gun and it looks like his hand isn't even closed onto it…

I take it you don't have Takara's Rodimus Prime then. The slots in his hands are very small for the guns. The wieght of Offshoot might make it prone to falling out of his hands like the guns do on Takara's version. It's one of the reason I'm not going to be an early purchaser of this one.

Yeah, that would be the "I don't have the MP" part… :P
But I get you on the weight issue.

lol, sorry. I wrote that with very sleep eyes, I missed that bit. Seriously, Rodimus has a hard time holding the guns, a Targetmaster might be too much unless Hasbro have done some reworking. On the MP, if the fingers are out of position only slightly the guns fall out. Breathing on the combined blaster has the same effect.

Thank you. From what I've seen, MP-Rodimus has trouble holding the gun in one hand when it's combined, let alone a MP Targetmaster

I know this has nothing to do with Transformers, but I have to say this....

I'm extremely interested in the Halo: Anniversary line. This is the first time I've heard of it.... :???:

I envision a KO trailer being made for everyone who buys the TRU Rodimus. As long as they get the red to match correctly and it clips on tight, it will become the most purchased KO of the decade.

I wonder if that Rodimus is the original mold with the faults or the second version with the repaired faults?? If it is the first mold = :evil: NO DEAL!! :evil:

Regardless for me he shall remain in the package and shall be placed next to TRU Grimlock. I think they may have open conversations when I'm not around from within their packaging...'nuff said :VEHI:

I'm just interested in the targetmaster, but not willing to get the whole set.
