    The Kiss Play version by far and away is the superior toy, but if you can stand to live with the Alt and want more money then keep the Alt version.

    I'd say keep the Kissplay one. His colour scheme fits in better with the realism of the Alternators. Plus he's got better accessories.

    Alt rod is better then KISS rod for this simple fact that he was in the KISS line and and not the BT line.

    Hot Rod isn’t Hot Rod without out the flames. I believe KP’s alt mode pales in comparison to SDCC Rodimus. The flame deco is awesome and what I longed for before I saw SDCC Rodimus. KP was lacking from the moment I saw it, the strips are dull IMO! The robot modes are comparable but I still prefer the flames. I’ve been waiting for a high quality and aesthetically pleasing Rodimus for a long time. The only hot rod / rodimus that can surpass this is Don’s concept art and the way this site disposes of that picture I’m not sure if we will ever see it.

    I think I'd pay more for a loose complete KP Rod than I would one MISB with the pedo art

    repolabels.com has flame stickers for KP rodimus if you really want the flames.

    IMO, i feel that you should keep both. Each version of Rodimus has its things that makes a person wanna get it. KP Rodimus has the fishing pole and his companion. Alt. Rodimus had the flame decal like his G1 form. I have KP Rodimus and I ordered an Alt. Rodimus. I am happy with both figures. If you must get rid of one figure, base it on what each of them has. Besides, if you sell KP Rodimus, you could try selling him without the pole and his companion. I dunno if anyone will buy him without his accessories.

    I could have sworn that the ONLY differences were:
    fishing pole
    loli
    unpainted red plastic vs. painted red plastic
    flames vs. stripes
    shade of orange/yellow plastic (I'm colorblind, so I dunno).

    I don't see how those differences make either one a "superior toy"

    The flames make Hot Rod. Not the fishing rod, or the loli girl.

    And far as the quality of the product goes, the paint on the KP is what really sets them apart. I still don't have my SDCC Rod, but from the pics I've seen the red plastic looks fine.

    Besides, Mirage already has the stripes, I'd rather have a ford GT with a different deco sitting next to it .

    I am a fan of the realistic (or stock) car decoes, so I prefer the Kiss one. I also think the painted plastic gives it a more auto-realistic quality that unpainted plastic lacks. The fishing pole is nice also.

    I wish they would've done, or would do, a baby blue and orange GT as a Blurr.

    I have both and I prefer the KP version. The flames are nice but I think the stripes look much better.

    I prefer Alt or Bt with realistic alt mode so KT seems more realistic with the stripes instead of the flame decals.

    Keep the KP version, it looks better has a fishing pole, and if you want the flames, a couple of bucks from reprolabels puts flames on him that make the Alt version look dull and lazy. IMHO

    Just wish i could get a second pole for the other arm myself.

    That is personally my favorite part of the BT. I've been thinking about this for a while..I have all Bt's and Alts (except for broadblast), and have been debating on getting rid of Red Meister, blue prowl, etc....I don't know and it's hard to make up my mind. Flames = Hot Rod. Fishing Pole = Movie Hot Rod. The debate continues.

    I like both of them each for their own qualities.
