    :lol . In all seriousness. I'm pretty interested in Hoodlum. So far the robot mode looks better than Takara's Hot Rod 2.0. No release date yet. When was the last update?

    It's a glorified Cybertronian soccer mom van ... lets not kid ourselves ... the elevation of this alt mode to leader of the Autobots prolly took out a third of the young fan base such as myself lol

    Pretty much. Which of you think about it, makes sence why his "trailer" had a weapons base like optimus.

    Wow! It looks pretty, pretty cool in robot mode. Far better than TT.

    I purchased the TT Hot Rod KO, but this will really be my Hot Rod. Well done FT.

    Side note: I'm not feeling their Kup or Springer ATM.

    If MP-09 is Rodimus "old fart" and MP Hot Rod is "turbo-revvin' young punk", then Hoodlum is "I never stuffed the Matrix into my chest but I did grow up and put on a few pounds and a bit of muscle so dudes like Springer don't kick sand in my face at the beach".

    I don't like that face, which is nicely sculpted but is too broad-chinned/fails to capture the youthful boyishness of our hotheaded young friend. And I definitely don't like the "head on a plate" look instead of it segueing nicely into his iconic collar.

    It's a solid "maybe" for me :p

    Ebay:
    Helmet brim is a hair too low.

    Otherwise, much better than the TT Chugsterpiece.

    Still too small for my MP shelf though.

    Nice! Rear wheels of alt mode looks questionable though.
