A booklet or detailed instruction manuel has always been a welcome addition in the unboxing process. It's a service you can expect with premium priced statues like these.
I do like the statue; it's just he is more Hot Rod than Rodimus. If they want to call him Rodimus, so be it, but fix the alternate mode.

I don't expect instructions on basic statues like Hordak. Even some of the Prime 1 pieces came with instructions when they really weren't needed. The bases on these XM pieces though are quite detailed and an assembly order page for reference shouldn't be a thing we need to gripe about.

If it wasn't for one of you guys it would've taken me hours to figure out where that one wire/tube goes on Megatron's base.

Prime 1 Shockwave was 70+ parts imagine if P1 said eff it and didn't include instructions. I had a hard enough time with the instructions.

If they do that, im just not buying. Very simple really.
Im currently in on all except Nemesis because he doesnt fit with my view of what G1 is.

And to me, this guy will be called HotRod instead of Rodimus.
And just a white Prime as a Magnus is a no go.

Same here with Nemesis.

I would like to call him Hot Rod, but he's too big to be Hot Rod.
