love the look of these toys

love the look of these toys I only wish the transforming toys had such cool hip and body joints but I guess thats not going to happen for some time. also if I did get this I would be very tempted to make a custom FireBolt so I could have a Target Master edition as well... saying that i could very well expect to see one coming from this line looking at what they have done with past figures.

I do think that HR is popular he gets quite a few Homages theirs are least 1 in every new show that comes out of Japan and then theirs the Kiss Play Hotrod GT40. I'm not sure why he is so popular as Hotrod he only shown up near the end of season 3 and then in head masters. so i guess Rodimus prime/hot rod stuck a cord in Japan

Transformer and other robot art by me on my DA site

Uh, hardly seen again?

Wasn't he the leader for an entire season of the TV after the movie?

I think he means that he

I think he means that he wasn't seen in "Hot Rod" form. After he opened the Matrix in the movie he turned into Rodimus Prime, which changed him from a futuristic sports car to a futuristic Winnebago. He got taller and got wrinkles.

I want this. I want this SO

I want this. I want this SO HARD. Hot Rod is my favorite G1 cartoon character. (Blaster is better in the comics, and Tigatron is my fave in Beast Wars.)
