My case and point precisely, Cliffy, in so many words.

I hope that it does do well, for FansProject's sake. But until I see some colour on it, I'm not terribly sure that it'll find it's way on to my 'want' list of FansProject add-ons. That, and I can never seem to find a cheap Hot Rod to start with...

To be honest, Rodimus Prime never seemed to be a huge visual departure from Hot Rod in the first place. He was taller, and his alt mode made him look like a mobile home, but otherwise Rodimus Prime wasn't too distinct from Hot Rod. So if anything, this Fansproject add-on is in keeping with that.

Besides, if the add-on ended up making Rodimus look wildly different, fans would be crying foul anyway.

I just got the Rodimus toy in yesterday. He is quite a bit smaller than I expected, but about on par with the G1 size. The toy is a nice representation of the character, but not what I expected for $75 USD. Mind you, I was not collecting TFs when the toy came out, and Astrotrain is about the last Classic figures I still want to get, that and a nice Ramjet. (the one I have now was lined in a Macross marker from the previous owner)

I will buy the trailer set because I do like the Superion add on set as well as the City Commander set. I do not like the weapon they have from the test shots. Looks kind of lame. Then again, I was not a huge fan of the rifle with fins. Whooosh....I'm gonna shoot you now Galvatron....

A Classics Rodimus sells for 75 US dollars?
I might have to head on over to eBay and sell mine! I'm not that attached to it . . .

Yeah, I was just thinking the same thing. I like Classics Rodimus, but I might like $50 more.

I paid £30 delivered for my Classics Rodimus which was MOSC.
I still dont know if its worth buying the add on set. Dont like the gun attachment for one thing. Will wait until the release before making my mind up.

Crazy Devy is making much larger wings for Predaking. If anybody wants to shell out the money for an already expensive figure, go for it.

That does look an awesome set - it almost makes Rodimus Prime look cool!

It doesn't have the same G1 design quality that made the Ultra Magnus add-on so essential though.

(Of course, G1 design fidelity would make a Rodimus Prime add-on totally udesireable... Catch-22.)

I do like that they've tried to make Rodimus into something more than a taller Hot Rod with a block of a gun station.

Still, this one's not for me.

New sale thread added with a range of Transformers including Masterpiece, Botcon, CHUG, RID, Movies etc.

Looking for MP-11T Thundercracker and MP-9 Rodimus v2 (Takara version with as few QC issues as possible).


Check out my new sale thread now!

Also items on eBay.

So for ten dollars more, you can get a black version that comes with a tree pruner? Awesome.

Fansproject has updated their site with the full color mode. Looks fantastic but is it just me or anybody, he still feels like missing something I can't tell.
