    yeah Ive got nothing against the flames, I just think it should be 2 sets instead of 1 mixed. I really liked the Tracks set because it gave you a choice.

    I kinda dig it. The orange on the stickers that go on the sides of Rodimus' car mode need to be a little more saturated to match the trailer's orange.

    Honestly, when I first saw this, I immediately loved the flames, but also thought it might be too much for Hot Rod/Rodimus. BUT, I thought on it for a while and looked over the images again. I really dig it and I actually think it does a good job of giving Hot Rod that more modern updated look, which is actually what Classics/Universe/Generations is all about.....modern takes on old school characters.

    I think offering in two sets would be a good idea--one for Hot Rod only and one that covers both Hot Rod and the Protector armor/trailer. I will say that I think the trailer is a bit too much on the flames, but Hot Rod's flames look good on him (though I don't care much for the orange trim near the bottom of the alt mode or the huge Autobot logo in the flames on the hood--maybe omit that or make it smaller, since it seems a bit large). I'd probably just cover that up anyway with one of your Autobot symbol reprolabel stickers.

    I'm not liking the flames one bit. But I do think the side paneling on hot rod looks amazing.

    Looks cool, but I wouldn't put it on my Protector Rodimus.

    Maybe I'll do up a custom with the set.

    Are you still going to offer this as one big set also? I like it and would like to get it. Also, when is it due out?

    Not feeling it. Kinda over done. Gives me a Professional-Wrestler hype vibe. Something like that might work for the fallen....

    Wait I get why now. It has a realistic aesthetic to it where the character himself is a cartoon aesthetic. Its like trying to bring something to life that isn't.

    The orange on the bottom is okay, but the flames are a super bad choice.

    The flames are superb, they just don't fit the blockyness of the toy. They're too realistic.

    Everything BUT the flames looks good, I like the side paneling on Hot Rod.

    The flames are WAY too busy for me.

    Protip: It is impossible to put flames on a car in a tasteful way. The best you can hope for is "nostalgic", but any flame pattern will be hokey.


    That said, this sticker set is cheese-tastic. I might have to get a second Rodimus and try this set out. I couldn't possibly love it more.

    Burning Fingah!!!!!! I like the way the set blends. Not for me, but definitely good for an alternative version.

    I like the flames okay, working in the Autobot symbol is a nice touch.

    But the fake LED's look,,,, well fake.

    Oh well, it's something different.

    Hope you enjoy it.
