    I've really been wanting a Hot Rod figure that's really reminiscent of his G1 counterpart. And it seems that Hasbro won't be releasing Animated Rodimus for a while or at all.

    So, the point of this thread is:

    In your opinion, what's your favorite figure of him?

    I would have to say Classics/Henkei Rodimus - it's a wonderful refresh to a great character :thumb 

    ...then (sometime :lol ) an armor set will be released to power him up to be Rodimus Prime!

    It hasn't been released yet!! MP Rodimus is the rumored next figure right?

    If not.... I don't know.. I wasn't a big fan of Henkei/CLassics Hot rod. I'd say G1

    oh and no Rodimus Prime toy is awesome.

    for me, it has to be the alternators/binaltech mold.

    Henkei! Hot Rodimus.

    And despite not being a transforming figure, Revoltech Hot Rodimus is awesome as well.

    Double bingo. The Henkei is my favorite (can't wait for the Protector armor too), and the Revoltech is awesome as well.

    I'd have to agree with most on this post. Gotta go with Henkei Hot Rod, very awesome figure and representation of G1 Hot Rod. And I will have to say that the near future Protector Armor upgrade that Fansproject will put out will probably be the best representation of Rodimus Prime. Really can't wait to see some prototype pics of the armor on this figure....hurts the heart....owwwwwwwww.

    My favorite is actually the energon toy. He's got a kickass mini tractor racer form and his robot form was pretty good if you can get over the large legs.

    Shattered Glass Rodimus.

    I like his dark/evil personality. But of course, the mold :rock  as well!

    Yeah, the Classics mold of Hot Rod is a clear winner. With that being said there are several other that have been mentioned too: Energon Rodimus, Alternators Rodimus, and the original G1 Hot Rod.

    If you gotta get one, go with the Classics/Henkei mold.

    ...

    G1.

    I know it's a brick. an absolute brick. but I love it.

    the classics mold just doesnt look right to me. the face, the engine on the chest rather than the collar, black hands, it just isnt right.

    vehicle mode = g1 hot rod

    robot mode = classics rodimus.

    sorry, but i LOVE the original hot rod's car mode, as much as i love the classic's rodimus, nothing will beat g1's vehicle mode to me. :)

    G1 Hot Rod is the best in my eyes still.
    I really like the Henkei's vehicle mode but his robot mode doesn't look right and has wonky articulation.

    That's right, I'd rather have a brick than joints that annoy me :p
