Rapid Run

Alternator Rodimus

Recommended Posts

I also got mine today. The only complaint I have is that the back trunk door will not stay snapped onto the car.

 

The bot mode on this bad boy is fantastic. :thumb

So did that rumored second batch of Rodimi ever go up on HTS?

Right. I just opened up one of the holes a tiny little bit towards the centerline of the car, and the hatch closes fine now. Don't go nuts or anything, just scrape a little off the side of the hole with a sharp point blade. As always, better to do too little than too much. HTH

I've been trying to get my hands on one of these figures (at retail price) once I got back from vacation and realizing I missed it by 1 day! Alternator Rodimus DID go back in-stock Tuesday morning for less than 10 minutes! Today, it looks like Hasbro removed him completely from their store.

 

So is that it then? Maybe there will be a few returns, and we'll get another 5 minutes to try to order him again. ;)

Also: does anyone want the box, complete? I was hoping it would say something like "2007 San Diego ComiCon Exclusive!" on it, but oh well. I opened it as carefully as possible, you could totally put yours back in for display. I'll cover shipping if it's not more than a couple bucks. First PM gets it.

 

So nobody wants my Rodimus box? Last call, it gets tossed this Friday night 8/10...

 

EDIT- STPrime gets it.

The visor is a nice addition but it makes him look like he has shooting glasses on.

 

So is he Hot Rod or Rodimus Prime? I'm calling him Hot Rod, mostly based on his face sculpt.

I haven't had time to open mine up yet, but I really think the "gold" flames on the hood are too dark. They look more brown than the yellow-gold on the box. Same with the stripes down the side. Hopefully it will look better once I get it out of the box adn transformed.

That was my thought as well. It's prolly because they printed the gold right on the red; it would look a lot better if there was a lighter color underneath to add some brightness and help with the reflectivity.

 

Otherwise, I was kind of surprised to find that this is almost an exact clone of KP Rodimus, right down to the chest hinges being able to lock onto the hood in bot mode. I figured some of the paint apps would be different, or different colors for the plastics used, but it looks identical.

 

And as far as I'm concerned, he's Hot Rod. RP was a truck. :tflaugh
