    First of this by far is the best henkei repaint yet next to megs and starscream imo.(i do have them all)The love put into this figure is shown.

    box art is very nice and has the tech card and a nice comic.

    the new colors are a very nice upgrade from the classics version and show his real g1 color scheme in bot mode
    alt mode

    alt mode really comes together nicely and the gold chrome spoiler is very nice.


    Easily this is a must buy for rodimus/hotrod collectors and g1 fans.


    I would give this repaint a 9/10

    Nice review, but I wouldn't say that he's the best henkei repaint yet, that honour goes to either Astrotrain or Megatron with Hot Rod tied with Starscream & Skyfire in 2nd(just my opinion)

    Nice pic, are you getting Skyfire or not? I'd like to see him w/the others.

    Excellent. I'm glad I ordered one of these today from BBTS. He just may look better than the Botcon "evil" Rodimus, but I'll wait until he arrives to make that call.

    Pass. I prefer my Hasbro version.

    Best Henkei repaint over Hasbro IMO has to be Starscream. I'm glad that Megs got his G1 colors, but i feel the execution is lacking and somewhat tacky. And the chrome chest isn't helping.

    How easy/difficult would it be to switch out the spoilers with the classic version?

    Then I guess it's good thing they haven't made a Henkei Acid Storm in OHMYGAWDMYEYES Neon Green, eh?

    Very nice!

    And always nice for someone to do the traditional pics review rather than those annoying video reviews.

    Have you looked at one from behind? look in the gallery if you want. They're not attached, just slotted in, and can slide right off.

    Not really feeling this repaint even though I condier myself to be quite an avid Hot Rod/Rodimus collector.

    Not sure what really turns me off: the sore thumb orange hood, or the mold itself which I consider to be one of the less exciting ones in Classic 1.0. How HotShot would have put it... wHy mY 3lb0w hUR7s?

    Not bad, though I wish the chest wasn't so orange.
