Vanity is not a fault from which AUTOBOT RATCHET typically suffers. He is more concerned with saving the lives of his fellow AUTOBOTS than with what they think about him. He's never paid much attention to the decorations adorning his vehicle mode.

His packaging was a bit banged up when I received him, but since it was mostly in the corners I'm trumping that up to minor movement in his box while he was being shipped. I was a little suspicious of the copious amount of tape holding the plastic to the back, but when further examination didn't bring up any damage to the cardboard or other evidence of him being removed (and, frankly, I would never claim I intended to keep him in the packaging to begin with), I figured he'd just managed to get a huge amount of tape attached to him in his inital packaging.
As is my custom, I removed the plastic from the cardboard using an Exacto knife. This time wasn't the smoothest---the copious amount of tape caused some difficulty, and despite my best efforts a goodly amount of the front background was torn, though happily the backing images remained fully intact, if still covered with large patches of tape (it's a pet peeve more than anything). Getting Rodimus out of his plastic would've been a bit of a trick too but for the fact that I have absolutely no qualms about cutting plastic, so I was able to pop him out without further issue.
I'll be blunt---I think the crossbow stuck on the roof of his alt-mode looks stupid. Granted, there's really no other way keep it with him when he's in alt-mode, apart from always remembering where you happened to set it (not my strong point), but still: I don't like it. Otherwise, his alt-mode is extremely eye-pleasing; he looks enough like a custom sportscar to actually pass as one, which I personally find rare in this series. Much as I love the robotic designs, the aesthetics of the series sometimes negatively affect the alt-modes.
Rodimus is a bit tricky in the sense that he has a lot of tabs that have to snap into place to get things in the right place, and he can be difficult to transform if you neglect a tab or two in sequence thinking you can get back to it. This isn't always true; for example, if you don't snap his back/cockpit into place, his chestplace remains loose and unlocked, which (I've found) affects his balance in his Autobot-mode. I find getting him from his Autobot-mode into his alt-mode more difficult than the reverse. That said, once you get the basic sequence down, it isn't hard to figure out which steps you can rearrange to transform him faster.
As is the norm with this series, Rodimus has excellent light-piping for his eyes, and his face is wonderfully on-model with his animated image(s). I have a small aesthetic problem with his torso, in that his chestplate and shoulders are very broad but his waist and legs are comparatively slim; the visual differential is vaguely chicken-esque. This is at-odds with his animated representation, which shows his torso tapering into his waist. However, with these figures I fully realize that sometimes they can only get 'close enough' to the animated image and don't consider it a huge drawback, only something that's readily noticable. His Autobot symbol is slightly off-center, which wouldn't be a problem (since it's on-center with his flame decal) except that his Autobot symbol is on a flipping tab in the middle of his chestplate. Once again, something noticable, but not necessarily a drawback, either, especially if your purpose (like mine) is predominantly play.
Overall, Rodimus is a great figure in the Transformers Animated series and a lot of fun!
