Post A possible Rodimus Alternator?

There may still be life in the Alternators line yet!

Images of a in package Alternator Rodimus (with spiffy new decals too), have surfaced at actoys.com

Still not official....yet

My great mongoose! That would be an easy purchase decision! I do hope he turns out real - I very much wanted the Kiss version, but costs y'know... And the flame decals do look rather hot!

Does that mean any other repaints or remolds may be a possibility?

It's just, the line did seem to be a bit dead... Perhaps they plan to tick it over, and determine demand after the Movie drags a bunch more 'adults' into TFs?

Hmmm . . . I got the Kiss version, but I might be willing to pick this one up, with it's show accurate color scheme.

No assortment number indicates an exclusive of sorts.

Also, box artist Marcelo Matere confirmes it being real here:

Tis nice. Won't pick it up unless it's cheap, though (which isn't going to happen)... or if I get another completist OCD urge. I prefer my Kiss version with actual car-accurate stripeage. Plus my Binalt collection is a flame-free zone. If you ignore Ricochet... dammit.

Yeah, I love how they've made the thighs orange, the shins grey and the spoiler yellow, too...

Ah. I kinda stopped looking after I saw the flame. ;-p I guess I should say "More show-accurate than the leading brand, or something." Anywho, I'll prbably snatch it, if I see it, since I'm a fan of Roddy.

Sweet. Now if I could just find Mirage for under $80 I'd be all set.

(I guess I'm still missing Swerve as well, but I'm not holding out any sort of hope for him)

Same here...this one of Rodimus looks better than the one that I have now....All I have to do is to find out where I can get one

My guess is, since Wal-Mart sseems to be the only place carrying these anymore, that it will be another Wal-Mart exclusive. Here's hoping I can at least find this one.

This gets better and better. Looks like there will be a lot of us after his chassis - providing we won't have to pay out too much! Not going to be through Tesco, methinks, alas

If it's a limited release, I'd guess Comicon or Botcon exclusive.

If it's general mass release, it won't be until the fall.

The decor is different enough from the Kiss release for me to want to get this too, but I'll probably leave it boxed since I can't fake another character out of it.

Since mirage never appeared around here I'll have to get Hot Rod. I really like the gt-40 mould and I am grateful for the new chance at getting one

Hell it even looks good, better that kiss play roddy.

If it was another Wal*Mart exclusive, it'd share an assortment number with Ravage and Rumble. Instead, Rodimus has NO assortment number at all, which means that whoever will get him ONLY gets Rodimus and nothing else in a shipping case.

this one looks a helluva lot better than KISS Play Rodimus. The paint job isn't too gawdy, it's just right. I will definately pick this one up when i see it
