    Anyone know if this is somehow intentional?
    I got my Alternator Rodimuses in, and noticed that on the packaging it says just Rodimus, but on the instructions it says Rodimus Prime.

    No trailer = No 'Prime'. I wonder who the genius was that thought a hybrid sports car with a trailer painted in Ronald McDonald/Hulk Hogan colors was a good idea.

    Judging by Alt Roddy's motto, which is definitely NOT something Hot Rod would say, I think the toy was always intended to be the Prime version.

    Guess I'll consider my KP Rodimus to be Hot Rod then, and this one Prime.

    And oh yes, very useful first reply.

    Funny that, I had him posed next to my Classics Hot Rod holding MP Prime's Matrix and thought to myself: "Boy he sure seems more like a Rodimus Prime than a Hot Rod this way."

    He's got a Primeliness about him. He's more Rodimus Major to me, an up and coming young Autobot commander. He looks good with MP Primes matrix.

    He is not Hot Rod or Rodimus Prime. He no longer holds the matrix because Optimus Prime is the leader but because he once held the matrix, his leadership role should be recognized. Therefore he's Rodimus. Hasbro has also denoted the character as Rodimus Major and Hot Rodimus. Plus the most important reason for the change is that Hasbro doesn't have rights to the name "Hot Rod"! Notice the Classics package also refers to him as Rodimus and reissue is called Rodimus Major. It the fans that lump them together and still call him Hot Rod or Rodimus interchangeably.

    Random request: can someone post a picture of G1 Rodimus Prime's alt mode without the camper? I've never seen that before. All pictures have him attached to his trailer.
