Hi all, here's a quick look at Transformers Masterpiece Rodimus Prime Hasbro version
Weapons can be mounted on the engine
.... but for some strange reason, even though it's mentioned in the manual, the Target Master figure can't fit into the the slot. Unless I'm missing something?
The color scheme for this version of the MPC Rodimus Prime is based on the G1 toy of Hot Rod.
Hot Rod mode
Blasters combine to form Battle-rifle
Target Master Offshoot
Matrix of Leadership (comes with an extra one from MP01 Optimus Prime)
Light our darkest hour!!
Comparison with the Takara Tomy version
For some reason, the Hasbro version has a different type of cover for the elbow areas. Thinner and tends to pop out of place a lot more often.. hmm...
Of course the Hasbro version plugs into the Takara Tomy trailer all the same, but the color difference sticks out a bit.
Even though I still prefer the Takara Tomy version colors (plus the trailer), coming across this at almost 65% off the retail price was too good to pass up. Hasbro Rodimus Prime also holds his weapons better (way better) than the version 1 Rodimus Convoy. Plus the Target Master is an exclusive figure for the US version.
Thanks Tragichero, I can't say I had any problems with the Hasbro version. I wasn't being too careful and nothing broke. Unlike how I tiptoed around the legs with the Takara Tomy version 1 after reading about the QC problems with durability.
Yup, Hasbro's MP Rody is one sturdy toy, there's no sign of the ankle problem that plagued TakTom's 1st release. I even manhandled one of the elbow covers once while transforming it to car mode, and it's still ok, considering the size of that flimsy bit of plastic.

TheMazingerZ: blitzkriegomega, the MAX Genesic Gaogaigar is way too big for the SRC GaoGaiGar. Remember, they are both supposed to use the same Galeon/GaiGar as a core. But it's your collection and your setup, so by all means mix and match at your pleasure! [br]
