Welcome back to another segment of our randomly-updated TFW2005 Sound-Off!, where we give you, the fans, a chance to get together in one big group, say things, vote on things, and then share all that on our frontpage! We had a slight hiccup last time, but we do appreciate all the votes and the knowledge that YOU. WANT. HEADMASTERS!
We also wanted to take a quick second to notice Slag-A-Con 2010, the convention recently held in Chesterfield, Indiana. It came to our attention that Gregg Berger, the voice of the original G1 Grimlock, was asked, based on our last Sound-Off!, if he’d return to voice Grimlock if Shout Factory! chose to translate and dub the Headmasters series. We’re tickled that you’re all paying attention and enjoying our Sound-Off bits, so thank you! (Gregg said yes, by the way)
On to the meat of this one!
RODIMUS PRIME IS COMING! The next Masterpiece figure is that of Rodimus Prime (or Hot Rodimus, Rodimus Minor, Rodimus Convoy, Rodimus) and it’s recently been revealed that he will see a release in both Japan and in the United States. But it was also revealed that there would be some differences – namely the lack of a trailer in the Hasbro version of the figure. That said, this question should be obvious!
It should be noted that the rumor is that Hasbro is planning to throw some extra goodies in with their Rodimus figure, to make up for the lack of a trailer (or to justify the price-point they set, who knows for sure). It’ll also cost less than the $200 USD that Takaratomy is charging for their version.
Decisons, decisions! So what are you waiting for? HIT THE POLLS AND VOTE! We’ll see you in a week or so with all the updates!

Randomly selected users will have their posts linked to and copied on to the frontpage. Hasbro has yet to give any release dates or details on their Rodimus figure, except that it won’t come with a trailer. More details, as always, as they arise!
