Choro-Q Rodimus Prime Metallic - G1 - Figure

Robot Mode
Packaged in robot mode, Choro-Q Rodimus stands at just under 2 1/2" tall, ready to battle the evil of Megatron alongside Optimus Prime. Although I saw the pictures, I'm still rather pleased at the detail in something so small. Unlike Choro-Q Megatron, Rodimus' face looks like Rodimus, well Hot Rod at any rate. He has that "I just helped kill Prime, what am I going to do now" look in his eyes, his signature triple cannons on each arm, and a scaled down version of the rifle the original version of Rodimus Prime came with. And while the metallic paint gives him a darker look from any other incarnation of Rodimus, it's actually very complimentary to the toy. Articulation is lacking due to transformation. He moves only at the shoulders.

Transformation
Transformation is very simple. Raise the chest up, remove the gun and swing the arms out forward. One at a time, rotate the panels connected to his arms around and then rotate the spoiler back. The rifle can be stored on top of the spoiler in vehicle mode.

Vehicle Mode
Now measuring at 2 3/4" long, in vehicle mode, Rodimus Prime looks so darn cute. It's like someone took the Rodimus Prime toy and washed it in hot water. The flames are painted on the side and the three pipes are there on either side, just past the cab. The neatest thing, I thought, was that he has little rubber tires on all six wheels. The pullback motor is in the front cab section since the rear wheels separate for transformation. And since he's a little heavier than Megatron, he doesn't roll quite as fast as the Decepticon. Looks like Megatron will have an easy retreat.

Overall
Overall, Choro-Q Rodimus Prime is a very nice novelty. He's a bit pricey at $15 I paid considering his size. Still, if you're like the moody Autobot leader, I highly recommend getting this toy. I still need is Choro-Q Prime to settle who is the best leader with a race!
