A redeco of the Autobot Hot Rod toy in blacks and grays sold only at the 2001 Tokyo Toy Festival, Black Rodimus transforms into a futuristic/Cybertronic race car. Though his plastics and paint colors changed, his decals were the same as the normal Rodimus release. It is noteworthy that the hood and door stickers, factory-applied on other versions of the Hot Rod mold, were not preapplied to Black Rodimus, instead being included on a separate sticker sheet. Limited to 1500 pieces and packaged in a monochrome black version of Hot Rod's normal packaging, Black Rodimus was only available with the joint purchase of the "Crystal Rodimus" version of Hot Rod.
Released in 2001, Black Rodimus was limited to 1,500 pieces worldwide, and only available at the Tokyo Toy Festival. The figure comes complete and still sealed in the box. The box does show a bit of wear from age/storage but will still display well either opened or sealed. There is a slight crease in the flap (see pics), but the flap still stands tall.
Don't miss your chance to own this extremely rare figure at a great price.
