    A pic was on the front page for a while, now it's gone.

    Did somebody put the kibosh on it?

    Anyway, looks really cool. Really close to G1 Hotrod in robot mode, with a more earth-like vehicle mode.

    hopefully its only temporary, but we'll just have to wait and see for the time being.

    I've locked it in the closet in the mean time.

    That's understandable. I don't think anyone wants Don to get in trouble, even if it didn't come from him.

    I like the design a lot though. I'm more pumped about it than the Optimus design. Glad I was among the few get a look!

    I saved the images... as well as Josh's colored Robot Prime. :p  They (possible classic hot rod and colored robot prime) were mint. Hope everything gets cleared up and Don doesn't get into an sort of trouble.

    Wow, he's freaking awesome. Loving this classics line. Seriously, I'll be buying them all. I hope this leaking of sketches keeps up (assuming that no one's getting in trouble over it).

    Dammit! I missed it! So did Hasbro get 'Hor Rod' Back or are they going with Rodimus Major, Rodimus Prime, Hot Rodimus, etc? I hope to God they don't settle for Hot Shot....

    All the info we got so far says "Hot Rod", which makes it look as if Bumblebee isn't a singular incident.

    Or Shockwave, for that matter.

    Didn't see it, but I'm quite happy to forego the curiosity factor if it means Hasbro legal stay frosty.
    Now that we have members here on contract with Hasbro, I don't want to see them forfeit their freedom to associate because of needless paranoia.
