    Hello again. I'm loving my black G1 Hot-Rod figure, and I'm wondering if there is/was a black Rodimus Prime figure? G1 of coarse.
    Would be cool to have two of them.

    ^ There is.

    He's called "Lucky Draw Black Rodimus Prime" & you must amass a tidy amount before embarking on that journey. ;)

    It was a Lucky Draw piece and is both hella ugly and hella expensive. Good luck with this one.

    Edit-There was also a ehobby Clear Hot Rod that was released the same time as the black one you recently purchased.

    Nope it's not actually a Lucky Draw figure but a test shot used in preparing the mold for the reissue. You can read more about it at the link below (Scroll Down a bit).

    Either way, it will not be cheap or easy to obtain.

    I remember that page.

    Scrolling through for a read (refreshing) & then I found myself laughing at "unsrupulous eBay Seller." :lol

    I'm aware of the clear red Hot-Rod and maybe tempted to get it. But I'm more interested in a black Rodimus if possible. Although I might have to get a regular one and repaint it, or simply live without. I'd rather put that kind of money towards something else.
    Thanks guys!
