Sucks that the gun turned out the way it did, but everything else seems pretty on point. I agree it's brazen on DX9's part to put those two pics on the back on the box, but at the same time, the fact that we recognize them immediately demonstrates their status as quintessential Rodimus moments. The Optimus pic is also fitting since Roddy's legacy is so tied to his.

I'm excited and look forward to picking this guy up, but unless I catch a great deal at TFcon, I think I'm going to pre-order Terror and secure him first.

Cool review this is a way

Cool review this is a way better look at the toy than every other review I have seen. This isn't particularly my favorite Rodimus design but the more I look at him the more I appreciate the design, especially since we are getting a better official Hot Rod next year.

It's also interesting to see Third Parties more and more mainstream. I am glad DX-9 is not being Slavishly Cartoon G1 since Transformers fandom strong-arms every Third Party G1 cartoon accuracy. I am hoping these toy vigilantes get more creative doing their own twists on characters and transformations.
