An auction for a new legends 3-pack was spotted today which includes a peculiar name for a character of note. For the first time, we see the name “Rodimus” in regards to the movie toys. This is a repainted version of the Legends Classics Rodimus mold and looks to be very G1 in appearance. I guess that makes sense considering the nature of the giftset itself, but I believe this indicates something that the makes of Transformers 3 have kept very quiet: Who is the Red Ferrari Autobot?
Of course this toy is not necessarily supposed to represent the Red Ferrari in the movie, it could be a G1 homage much like the G2 spychanger Optimus painted to look like Movie Optimus from the first movie. Either way, this could definitely help the chances of this Ferrari being named Rodimus. Isn’t it strange that we haven’t seen a toy for this figure yet but we have for just about everyone else? Puzzling indeed. ^_^
