    This may be a goofy question, but IMO the kissplay Hot Rod (or whatever he's called) really seems to work as a FordGT. Since HR was basically a slight remold of Sideswipe to begin with, wouldn't bashing a Ford GT into Sideswipe (or even Red Alert) work better than his current Alt model? Are the heads interchangeable? If my BBTS preorder case (2 Ravage, Rumble, and Mirage) ever comes in, maybe I'll give it a shot with the extra Mirage I'll end up with. I love the Alt Mirage model and the blue color scheme, even if he just doesn't remind me of the G1 character at all.

    Why don't you just get an Alternators Sideswipe? I even know a 5 minute mod that will differentiate him from Sunstreaker better.

    Umm, Hot Rod was NOT a "slight remold" of Sideswipe. Yes, the basic transform scheme was pretty much the same, but among other things the sides of the front fenders became Hot Rod's upper arms, whereas they were part of the chest on Sideswipe. Honestly, take a look:

    Semantics. The side by side pics underscore that they have more similarities than differences.

    Already have one, already modded.

    Sorry, but this isn't a case of semantics.

    A remold is when parts of a mold for an existing figure are modified or swapped out to produce a new figure. Examples would be G1 Brawn -> Outback, Armada Hot Shot -> PX Hot Shot, Energon Inferno -> Roadblock, and (more extensive) Cyb Crumplezone -> Dark Crumplezone.

    Pairings such as G1 Sidewipe/Hot Rod, G1 Prowl/Jazz, Energon Sledge/Cyb Hardtop, and G2 Smokescreen/Energon Starscream may have the same overall transformation schemes, but they share no parts, so they aren't remolds.

    I never even noticed that Hot Shot/PX Hot Shot had different heads. Are any of the other PX toys remolds?

    Oh, and yeah, it's not semantics. Remold has a specific definition, just like redeco and repaint. Hot Rod and Sideswipe are two different toys with similar transformations.

    word on the hot rod is not a light remold, semantics be damn.

    similar transformation, arguable, but a remold has specific meaning especially within the context of toy discussion.

    that said, yeah, doable, but we already have hot rod rocking the ill red paint scheme, kinda redundant.

    Lots of people thought/think Primus is a Unicron remold. Remold isn't a term lots of people know the definition of.
