Is Rodimus Prime a masterpiece?

Well, if you’re asking if Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime is the next Transformer to get the oversized Masterpiece Collection treatment (which already includes Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker, and Grimlock), then yes, yes he is.

Although it’s far from my first choice to be included in the collection (can’t I get some love for Shockwave, please!?) this version can transform into both Hot Rod’s car mode and Rodimus Prime’s truck mode as well as giving you slight changes to differentiate between the two robots, which is kinda cool.

    This is very cool, and I want to get my hands on one. I think Roddy needed the Masterpiece treatment the most, because in addition to being a brick (which can be fixed with kitbashing), the original G1 Rodimus Prime toy is too tiny compared to G1 Galvatron (a problem kitbashing can’t solve). At long last he’s large enough to recreate his big scene from the movie.

      I know what you mean. It always bothered me that Ultra Magnus and Galvatron were the same size but Rodimus was like their little brother (with no movement below the middle of his chest). He wouldn’t be my first choice (*cough*Shockwave*cough*) to get the Masterpiece treatment but he’s a worthy choice nonetheless.

    I can’t argue with the rodimus masterpiece being chosen. I mean he used to be the leader of the autobots! However shockwave would be totally bad ass. But not as bad ass as a soundwave masterpiece that comes with a little masterpiece laserbeak that fits in his chest. That would probably be the most sought after MP of them all.
