    Rodimus - You have won the INTERWEBZ. Only TF's I have received from an ex was BT-10 Grimlock. I loved the new Mustang and she insisted to buy it.
    Congrats Rodimus!

    Hey TF gurus, I need some help on an old TF i used to have as kid, but i never knew the name of the bot. It was an orange dump truck with yellow accents and i think it was an autobot but not sure. Any help?

    Let a Prime take a crack at it - LOL

    I have the episodes of G1, but I was wondering . . . was there anything after the headmasters episode movie thing? People keep telling me that that's not the last episode. So confused. T_T

    Yes and No. The american continuity ended with "The Rebirth" and did not take on again until the Beast Wars. The Japanese evolved big time!

    G1 (S1-S3 + 3 Part episode The Rebirth)

    LOL I haven't seen or spoke to her since then, but who am I to turn down titties plus hers were so nice, once you have a nice set of d's in ya life its hard to talk to chicks with less. I was never a tit man but after my ex it's just like oh you a 32 b those are nice....:zzz:.

    I think after getting me Rodimus Prime I can forgive everything..lol just for the simple fact that she was clueless to how much I wanted that toy.

    Now I just need a MP galvatron and my child hood will be in my living room.

    I had him but my sister broke him in half along with my metroplex. We joke about it to this day how i was secs away from ending her life had our father not grabbed me up.

    Sis: Remember when i broke your transformers by mistake and you chased me to my room--
    Me: Yeah I tripped you then yelled Now Imma break you in half!!
    SIS: lulz hard..you picked me up by my ankle and had me upside down...LOL I really thought you was gonna kill me.
    Me: Then dad picked me up by my ankle and had me upside down.
    Us: LOL

    everybody had those transformers you wanted but just could never get a hold of. I wanted Kup so bad but i could never get him. I came this close, I was gonna trade this kid at school a sharkticon cause i had like 3 of them. but of course that kid got into a fight and went home--he was gone for like a week, then the next week I moved...smdh.

    I never got to have cup and hot rod together..so i could say

    Hot Rod: Not bad for an old timer!!
    Kup: Old timer?!?

    I had the triple changers and the insecticons, hot rod all set so i could re do the seen. Don't let them ever do a MP Kup lol str8 transforming to a 7yr old in my apt.

    Yeah, my sister would have been dead now. :lol: I think I still have mine but it's not in the greatest condition.

    that sux, I moved so much growing up. like from 3rd grade to high school every year i moved. I lost tons of toys, mostly transformers every move. It got to the point where i had to have a duffell bag just for my transformers. I told myself once i get my own place imma get all my toys back...lol yea right.

    I only have about 15-20 of the transformers from when i was a kid. every now and then i go into my 88' ibm box and take out my old school toys...lol. I had general hawk sitting in hound the other day. those g1 autobots are so small, i thought these toys were huge when i was a kid.

    Got rodimus but that was the kup that looked like a dodge durango or a jeep liberty or something. If that is the figure i just couldn't get it.

    Kup was more like a pickup type. Kinda reminded me of the Chevy SS crossed with a Dodge RAM

    SMH robot mode looks really good, the vehicle mode is what made me not get the toy. looking at it now i could prolly tolerate it.

    At the moment, MP Rodimus is available for order at the toysrus website http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=11679789

    Bought! Thanks for the link dude. For a while i thought it would not see a listing online, and with no TRU's even remotely close to my area, i was out of luck(and at the mercy of the scalpers).

    While i've been in collecting retirement for quite a while, passing on many great classics releases and otherwise these years, this is a great deal on an iconic character that i can't pass up.

    Something else i've realized recently, that may be common knowledge but I've been out of the loop lately. Is this release is actually meant to be a Masterpiece Hot Rod! The distinct changes in colorscheme between versions, omission of the trailer, and inclusion of the Targetmaster support this.

    This is neat as it means this really is a different release between regions, and not just the mere omission of the trailer for cost purposes.

    Yup. The JP release is based off of the animated model. This version is based off of the G1 toy. At least it has die cast feet :lol:

    Does anyone have the iGear seekers? I'm desperately wanting them, but interested to know how they came out.

    I do not personally own them, but most say they are on par with the MP figures. The one thing that they did do is allow the tail sections to be attached to the legs, so you don't have all of that tail kibble floating behind.

    Damnit! Received my MP Rodimus earlier this week and got around to opening him tonight. His left arm was broken inside the package!!!!

    I guess reports of this figure being more fragile than usual MP releases were not exaggerated....

    WOW! I think it must be a manufacturing issue during assembly. Other than the occurrences of the broken arm, I haven't heard too many problems.

    I've watched a good handful of reviews on the figure, and most noted how he felt fragile in various areas. Such as stress marks developing on hinges despite careful handling. Also heard things about the original takara release having issues beyond the usual leg panel stuff.

    Opinion seems to be that this is most definitely an adult-only figure, in that it could not stand up to much abuse. A child would likely destroy him in no time.

    Disappointing seeing as how MP Optimus, Grimmy, and Skywarp felt pretty solid.

    You're right. The original JP release has some QC issues. My understanding is that they resolved all of those for the US release. Specifically for the US release, I have seen some owners mention the broken arm. I haven't seen any that were having some of the plastic issues that the MP-09 release had. You are right though, this is definitely designed for adult hands.

    I dunno about you guys, but had i known the cheaper price point would result in this, I'd be willing to pay an extra $20 for higher quality/sturdier plastic. Would still be much more affordable than the original release even after the recent price drop.

    Shame. Even the mass produced, similarly priced U.S MP Skywarp was of fairly nice quality. Perhaps its with 2011's economic woes or something....

    Hopefully the next one i get will be better.

    I wonder about that. Its really the mold design itself that yields such small parts. I am pretty sure it could have been done though. However, it would make sense to use this plastic in most cases, creating a higher cost per figure.

    I got the Fansproject Not-Incecticons, and like them quite a bit. Definately only for Incecticon fans, though. Not-Kickback is my favorite in botmode, but his bug-mode is the worst-looking of the bunch.

    Also picked up the NY con exclusive TF-Prime Bee and Arcee, and really enjoyed them. Looking forward to the rest of the line, although the obvious lack of nose styling still irks me.

    I still find it odd that Prime has a noseguard with his faceplate up. How did you go about getting the NYCC exclusive?

    I gotta catch up on episodes 15 to the season ender.

    Hasbro's website. $30 for Deluxe Bumblebee in a NY taxi cab deco, packaged along with Deluxe pink Arcee. (and those humans... yay)
    http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/transformers-prime-bumblebee-and-arcee-set?BR=496&ID=29273

    Arcee's colors are kind of boring, as she is almost entirely light pink and white, giving little contrast in her design. I like how frenzy_rumble customized her: http://www.flickr.com/photos/accardi1/6258061245/ With some extra added silver highlights and line paneling, it pops more.

    Taxi Bee is cool in his darker orange/yellow color, especially since it's closer to his yellow in the show. The non-taxi version I believe is molded in a more brighter yellow. All of the official photos of him have him transformed with those extremely wide shoulders, accentuating his tiny waist. But you can compress his shoulders inwards more. You can also attach Arcee's blade weapons to the sides of her legs.
