I was posting in the MySpace Transformers group in response to the very good looking video game trailer, recounting how much I'd love to play Optimus Prime and kick Decepticon butt. As a sensitive child in 1986, I was mad as heck that Hot Rod interferred in Prime's fight with Megatron and wound up getting Prime shot at least 3-4 times. It made me yearn for a bonus "easter egg" in the game where you could play Hot Rod and drive him into walls and such, inflicting massive body damage. I think I've been holding a grudge against Hot Rod since '86 and I just might enjoy an option like that. I could see it now: instead of playing the game, I'd spend hours driving Hot Rod off of bridges, into brick walls, through glass buildings, letting him fall into lakes - getting trashed in construction yards. Maybe there's even an option where you can parallel park him alongside a building where grand pianos periodically fall out of the windows on the cars below? Ah what goes through the mind of a Transformer-sadist.
