    From ACToys and weibo...

    From the looks of things, Hot Rod is a little bigger than MP Lambor and uses the same transformation, but there is also an upgrade armor to make him into a larger robot mode.

    MP2.0

    That looks pretty good. Was hoping for an IDw style but that's quite cool.

    Red alert to rodimus? Hmmmm... Interesting... Looks a little too clumsy for me... But definitely an interesting remold... Hope someone does a movie-inspired Barricade remold of smokescreen... New evil face, black and purple paint job, and spikey hands.

    Edit... Looking at all the other pics, it looks a lot more promising... Have to see it in color. Definitely prefer the hot rod car over mp09 car mode... Over all... B+ so far. Do like the scale tho, for both hot rod and rodimus.... Price point is gonna be a toughie... Are these individual purchases or a "box set" evolution of rodimus thing? If the latter, I can see paying $180 or so... But if individual... I'd probably pass...

    The use of MP 12 is a little too obvious, new mold or GTFO.

    I dunno. I do LIKE the Lambo mold. It's kind of a big bite, but if it works hey - go for it.

    Decent attempt, but I can't get over seeing the original mold underneath

    While I'd love an MP-12-sized Hot Rod, I'm not sure that a remould of MP-12 is what I had in mind. :)  Still, I do love the mP-12 mould, though, so I could be tempted to pick it up. They'd have to change a few things. Get rid of those fake wheels on the arms and make the arms look more like Hot Rod's, change the pelvis plate for one that looks more like the one in the cartoon, get rid of the chevrons on the legs and make the legs look more boot-like... Generally make it look more like the cartoon and less obviously a Lambo reshell. :) 

    Everything about this guy screams "no!" to me, but I'm such a sucker for Hot Rod and the Lambo mould that it's still sucking me in, dammit. I'd like to see a decent shot of the head sculpt. I bet you have to remove the spoiler for transformation...

    That rodimus really does need to be the same height as mp 10. The mp 12 remould is clever and works but a new mould would be nice.

    Not bad considering the starting point. Interested to see how it comes along. Kinda 'Meh' at the moment though.

    Anyone else remember the Reprolabels Hotswipe set? It's made by adding the red part of Sideswipe, Red Alert (or was that G2 Sideswipe?) and some Hot Rod theme labels.

    Modified KO of Sideswipe which has made him too wide and too short to be an mp Hotrod
