    This is the Hot Rod included in the Wal-Mart exclusive two pack with Bumblebee and shockwave. Before I buy this I wanted to know if this is the sme as the original Hot Rod Legends class figure in both mode. Thanks!

    It's the same toy, but the paintjob is radically different. The original is red with a yellow flame, pretty much looking like you'd expect Hot Rod to look. The DOTM one is a bright orange with a yellowish gradient, and black outlines of flames.

    That's the thing. 10 bucks for 3 figures or 20 to 40 for one. I'll be getting the set now, thanks folks!

    Yeah, I hate the Soundwave in the set, but at least he's got G1-esque coloring. I do like the Gold BB though.

    It's a pretty good set, and 3 figures for $10 is a steal.

    I have the set, and while I'm not too keen on the overly-orange color, it is a nice mold. Bumblebee surprised me too (don't have him in any other form) and being a goldbug-bee with silver bot parts to go with it really works.

    And yes, Soundwave is ass. But if it's $10 for the set, you're getting at least two great figures out of it. You're definitely making a good choice. :)

    I have that set too, I love all 3. I think the Rodimus repaint is better than the original. And as the others have said, the price for the set is great. :)

    Oh wow, I have both and didn't notice they were the same figure! lol.

    Yup, all of them did in the store. I had at first thought the box I picked up lacked QC, but they were all like that.

    I saw the shots you posted on twitter, the new deco looks... pretty terrible imo. Like, bad enough that I don't think I'll go at all out of my way to get one. And maybe even pass if I trip over it. That makes me a bad Hot Rod collector, doesn't it?

    I figure I can at least repaint the windows...sparkle? argh.

    Now if repro stickers made a new flame cover up and windows that'd be cool. Luckily I don't like Hot Rod that much but it'll work for my g1 collection.
