Rodimus took the place of Optimus Prime in the original cartoon movie, other than that I couldn’t tell you what he has been up to lately. What I can say is in his newer 2007 counterpart makes for an excellent toy. Read on for the details and be sure to hit the video below for a full review and transformation.
Standing at about 5 and ½ inches tall in robot mode and comes with a missile firing gun. In robot mode he looks great, no matter what angle you put him in. Rodimus has at least 14 points of articulation, and is very poseable.
Yes this is another all plastic toy but I must say it has a VERY solid and excellent feel in the hands. Hasbro really might be onto something by making these all plastic it keeps them very affordable which means a whole generation of kids can get into giant transforming robots like
Transformation is very straightforward and I think kids as well as adults should have no problem with it.
Rodimus transforms into a generic no-name sports car but looks wicked in car mode as well. The gun attaches to form the exhaust on the back of the car (reminding me of the classic TV show Batmobile) and the fins as well as gun can be flipped forward to fire the missile while in car mode. A nice play feature for sure.
If you can’t tell, I REALLY like this thing. I recommend getting one as he appears to be getting scarce on the shelves as classic is pushed to the side to make way for the movie product.
Take a good look at this line there is definitely something for just about every robot fan out there. I’d hate for you to miss it.
