Seibertron's very own ChuckDawg1999 has sent a new video review our way. This time, it is for Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Legends Rodimus.

chuckdawg1999 wrote:Legends Rodimus is an interesting figure. Most fans would agree that the original Classics mold has needed an update, well we got that update plus a downsizing. I'm a bit disappointed that the mold wasn't adjusted further to allow the ax weapon to be pegged in, in robot mode thus creating the iconic spoiler. If you're a fan of the character or the mold I can recommend this as a solid purchase.

Well I've been out of collecting Transformers for a while and I didn't think I'd come back to it. That said I am really impressed with the Combiner Wars line. When I saw Optimus I knew I had to have him because the sculpt looked so good. Now I'm hooked on getting the rest of the line.

I was disappointed to see Rodimus as a legend class. Was that done solely for the reason to make him a chest piece?

It may also be a reference to Star Convoy, along with Battle Core Optimus Prime's new combiner mode head sculpt. Star Convoy was the resurrected for of Optimus Prime much later in the Japanese G1 series. In that form, Hot Rod served has Star Convoy's Targetmaster.

And speaking of Star Convoy, this year marks another figure who is a huge callback to that. He just came out in Japan and I think he would be totally awesome paired up with a "micromaster" rodimus:

Also, I think they made him rodimus simple because the alt mode was very reminiscent of him.

Crappy Rodimus figure. The Classics mold may be a lil dated in articulation and such but it's still a vastly superior representation of the character to this waste of plastic.

Actually, you know what? That totally works. The CHUG Deluxe Rodimus would be an updated version of the original Rodimus, while this new rodimus is not a further upgrade but instead an updated version of the micromaster :)

Well SMYTHS have Battle Core Optimus down for the middle of September so he won't be out until the middle of October at the earliest.

Courtesy of a number of users, in particular Victor Wong, on the Hong Kong based Facebook group HK-TF, we have some in-package and in-hand images of the white and gold redeco of the Voyager Optimus Prime toy from the Transformers Generations Combiner Wars line: Battle Core Optimus! The toy is made to reflect the IDW comic appearance in the Combiner Wars event, and is intended to form Optimus Maximus with the upcoming Prowl, Ironhide, Mirage and Sunstreaker deluxes - check out the mirrored images below.

Well, that's one figure I won't have to worry about tracking down.

80% bought, but only because of the uncanny resemblance to Nova Prime. Just needs a pair of wings and booties and BLAM makeshift Generations Nova Prime.

Psst, third parties, that's your cue!

Thank you. I bought Skywarp for this exact reason. I bought Blackjack as well, so I'll see who looks better as a bra. :lol:

Ditto, although if they actually made the full armor addons as his trailer it would be cool!

Surprisingly, this Optimus figure has more paint details than the original Voyager Class Optimus Prime. I'm surprised nobody noticed.
