    Doing some research on my G1 toys.

    I have a hotrod and looked him up online and read/see 2 versions exist

    1 rubber tires with metal feet
    2 plastic tires with plastic feet..

    But mine has .........rubber tires with plastic feet ?

    So is this a undiscovered variation ? should in be noted somewhere?

    Ebay:
    looking at the atypical sticker wear near the screw holes, looks like someone jacked your metal feet.

    Na the toy was bought new. It was one that was played with alot from 86-88 thenboxed up
    stick wear is becuase its over holes..

    As far as I know, the only mold difference between the two original (non-reissue) non-Targetmaster versions of Hot Rod are the feet, plastic vs. metal. Both versions had rubber tires.

    Rodimus Prime, on the other hand, featured either metal feet paired with rubber tires or plastic feet paired with plastic tires.
