    Don't get me wrong, i think most of the 3rd party realease lines will blow the build quality of the comissioned stuff away, as I am pretty sure, that Optimus custom will just sit on your desk (Although it does look awesome sitting there :lol:)

    I am glad there are companies like FansProject doing stuff with the figures. City Commander is probably the best example of making these figures shine even beyond what HasTakTomy will ever even think about doing. I really want to get the Protector set, but with MP Rodimus, it's almost like, Why? Those Devastator figures are gonna sell out quick for sure.

    Both but in different ways. The small one will be released at one time, so it's gonna get soaked up upon release. The larger one, will but depending on the point in its release cycle. Once a few figures are released, or after the first, people will go APE. There aren't too many fans that love a constructicon because of a single robot. Each figure is reelased bi-monthly I believe. So I think the completed fig will be here around April of next year. What also may happen is that a scalper might buy just the leg components or the torso pieces. If you get the larger one, you are in it for the long haul (no pun intended). The smaller is a quick grab.

    But then I look at iGear's PP03S Storm Seeker - it's the same sized MP Seeker and costs the same as a normal MP.

    I would attribute the similar costs to the fact that it's basically the same mold as MP Starscream. Nobody had to design from scratch the figure on their own. The design already existed for them to copy.

    funny thing is the big dev was by far the coolest combiner i had ever seen, putting those ugly frenzy rumble pieces and even those fp bruticus to shame. and out of nowhere comes mini dev who looks even better, damn.

    I think the smaller figure is a better Combined form. The Hercules (larger fig) has more of a focus on each individual part. The smaller will sell more quickly cause you have the instant gratification of a high end combiner, and who buys the Constructicons to have them sit separated.

    Which is why iGear catches so much flak from the fan base. Hell, even the Coneheads they produce are based off of Wheeljack from Sector70's design. All they did were a few tweaks and mass produced it. Really, there was not much originality to anything iGear produced until the Ironhide/ Ratchet releases.

    I received the MP Hot Rod that I was able to order off of the hasbro website. I was surprised at how dark the grey was for his face/hands. Makes him look kinda like a brutha, which doesn't bother me at all.

    I like the Takara version better myself, cleaner paint job to me.

    Question: I got Transformers Seasons 1, 2 (both sets), and the 3 & 4 25th sets. Pretty sweet stuff so far (Particularly like Season 3 and it's theme). Anywho I wanted to know if the recently released Headmasters Japanese follow-up is worth it, considering I believe it re-uses previous stock animation quite frequently.

    It seems cool enough but I want to know if it's solid. I hope they give us the seasons after that as well, the Star Sabre one in particular looked cool to me.

    The only series I really like from the Japanese series was Victory. Masterforce was pretty cool also. Never really got into Headmasters though

    Got my MP Prime. Man, if I paid 200+ for this fig, I'd be upset, as relatively speaking, it's not worth the tag if you aren't a Rodimus groupie, and werent in it for the trailer. 100 would be worth it, but for the Winnebago rear adding another 75-100, I wouldn't have been impressed. Overall, still a nice figure, and glad to add it to the collection. If I knew how to accurately paint, I'd make it look like the JP release for sure. Definitely worth the 52.00 spent (20% off Coupon at TRU)

    Plus he's got TWO matrix of leaderships! Why light just one darkest hour? (small one in chest, big one for holding)
    I would love to get the space winnebago version later on.

    I agree. BBTS got the first release for $150. That's the version with all of the defects. Still not interested.

    Did any of you notice that his larger matrix is a remold of the convoy matrix. I thought it was just paint, but it's an entirely different unit. I am replacing my 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime's Matrix with this one.

    EDIT - It doesn't fit in the cavity. You can't close the chest

    Hey Squall, you don't happen to have a 2nd MP Hot Rod do you? ;)

    Really out of the loop lately, but any idea when U.S masterpiece rodiumus prime is being released?

    I've yet to see him listed at TRU, BBTS, TF source, or any other site. Only see the SDCC releases on e-bay.

    It's a great figure, and definitely worth getting.

    Randomly thought about the first minute of this clip. I wonder how many Snarls were messed up from attempting to achieve MAXIMUM POWAH!

    Hmmm, I like the overall aesthetic of Giant. It matches a little closer to the Devastator's G1 form. However, I like Hercules head a little better.

    Yes I have finally got Rodimus Prime!!!!!!

    Before I tell the slighty epic story of never burning bridges. Thank you first to Psychosquall who helped me greatly giving me info on the figure and also going as far to provide a back up plan if I couldn't get the figure off the website. Thank you again Psycho.

    My slightly Epic Stir of Echoes Rodimus Prime Story:

    Friday night I was hella bored after work, I went to the movies to see killer elite. While Im standing in the line I see the ex gf. I for a moment wanted to be mature and speak but we didn't have a bad break up it was situational. So I chose to Spartan up and ignore her--She spots me and hits me up for a lil chat.

    Rod: Sup
    EX: You pay attention to every detail in a room so I know you saw me before I saw you.
    Rod: ( I'm stuck of course she knows me..lol) Nah Im running late for the movie.
    EX: Killer Elite?
    Rod: Of course--You too :bluu:
    EX: Yep, i actually thought about if we were still talking we'd prolly see this movie together, Clive, Statham De-
    Rod: Niro in the same movie. ( SMDH cause thats how in sync we use to be)
    Ex: well i know I fucked things up and I know this not the place for that so two friends watching a movie together?
    Rod: Those reeses are for me?
    Ex: Yea I brought them as soon as I saw you.

    ************************ Fast Foward****

    Ex: Well idk when i'll see you again if ever but can we try to become friends again.
    Rod: No doubt TTYL.

    Saturday I'm out at the mall with a couple of friends and we are leaving to grab some drinks at fridays. I get a call from a private number. It's the ex

    Ex: Hey not to hold you up are you at the mall?
    Rod: Yea you trying to stalk my whole life now?? lol
    Ex: No I got my nephew with me and i brought him some toys while we was out.
    Rod: No doubt well Im leav--

    She pulls up next to us, I'm like damn this shit is crazy. All my friends say what up and what have you cause we all were cool. So then she says:

    Ex: I was trying to tell you b4 that I got my nephew some toys from target, then he wanted to go to toys r us. I saw this
    Rod: ????

    Ex hands me Master Piece Rodimus Prime!!!! I had to contain my emotions lol how fucking, random, sixth sense, stir of echos shit is this???

    Ex: All the times we watched Transformers, I know Rodimus Prime is your fav next to Optimus. I saw it and was like thats weird this is a old toy why is it in stores now?? Are they gonna redo the animated movie?? Or is he gonna be in the 4th Micheal Bay movie???
    Rod: Uhh i dunno I think they just wanted to put out some old school transformers with the new school movie toys.

    She doesn't know about how the toys work of course but damn if i didnt wanna just take her home lol. She left and my boys were just like damn fam you even had the ex looking for Rodimus. Prime go hard for that figure what!!!

    So I'm still in shock and total disbelief that of all people, my ex would just get that toy with no agenda. Who knows i haven't spoke to her since but who knows if I play her out friday on some hi and bye does that even happen?

    How did we back to back days end up in the same place at the same time? Im telling you it was fate for me to get that Figure.

    Pics are gonna be up in a sec!!!!!

    I haven't transformed a transformer in forever, I was like a kid just smarter now. If you need any help with this very careful transformation hit me up.
    A tip is use those grooves under the windsheild for his feet, that will help everything snap in place. Also if you want the car to drive you can turn his head slight right or left and that will help out also.

    Those fucking red panels!!!! lol I took my time no help but i finally figured it out. checked online and peeps was having a hella hard time. Don't force it just breathe and he will transform.

    Shouts to anybody who has the Takara figure..cause it's so fucking cool for me right now with him as Hot Rod, If I had the trailer please i'd call out from work.
