OZFormers got the scoop with the first image of the more international release of Masterpiece Rodimus. Certain rumors seem to be confirmed in that he will not come with his trailer, but will be accompanied by a new targetmaster partner homaging Firebolt, named Offshoot. He is a deeper red and seems to have fewer paint applications. It is not apparent if this version will be based on the forthcoming second release with minor engineering improvements or the original release.

The color difference and targetmaster/trailer differences seem to be enough for me to get both the American and Japanese editions. US Edition can be Hot Rod, while the Japanese one can stand in as Rodimus Prime.

What do you all think about the differences? Let us know in the comments!
