Motto : " Experience is the benchmark of maturity. "

A vanguard for the Autobot ranks. Possesses acute military prowess. Speaks with the savvy of seasoned veteran. Expert tactician with exceptional maneuverability in battle. Can be hot-headed at times. Has a tendency to act first and ask questions later. In robot mode, carries a photon eliminator that shoots high voltage electricity. Range: 500 miles. Speed: 200mph. Sole purpose is to protect all life. His only weakness is his compassion for other living creatures.


...Roddy P is one heck of a small figure. The transformation is still marvelous, being able to change from Hotty Roddy into Roddy P and into that oh-so-80s vehicle in a way only a Masterpiece can boast about. But what the heck, there are seriously no substantial differences between them 'cept for an increase in height of perhaps less than half an inch and a face swap. Havin lack the interest and monetary liberty to collect the other Masterpiece lineup, apart from favourite Opie and Meg, I suddenly remember that based on general pics and reviews seen previously, the rest of TFMPs are shorter and smaller than the big two. When posed with them, Roddy looks uh, wimpy? I shoulda kick myself over this...And it is incredibly plasticky, quite a departure from Opie and Meg (though not necessary a bad thing, as Meg's feet is getting the "classic case" of rust). Then there are also stuffs like the back could not "click" in place and a, OMG, shrunken-ised Creation Matrix. Overall, I think Roddy P lacks the "feel" of a Masterpiece and the "greatness" of possibly one of the most popular and important TF characters of all time. The character definitely deserves better than this thang...
