So Rodimus is a futuristic version of this?
You call, Rod hauls.
. 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?
No... Rodimus is somewhat based on this...
GMC Bison Truck (1964 Concept)

Nope ... pretty sure its actually this car from the past.
I don't see it
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
I knew I never cared much for him.
Aww man. I saw daimchoc posted and thought it was newer pics.
Definitely Rodimus with the spoilers configured for wing mode.
Pretty much. Which of you think about it, makes sence why his "trailer" had a weapons base like optimus.
May the schwartz be with you!

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
All that backpack and no vents?
Not digging the round face/helmet or the overly thick exhaust pipes but this blows TT out of the water. Do want.
Helmet brim is a hair too low.
Otherwise, much better than the TT Chugsterpiece.
Still too small for my MP shelf though.
