    I know we have Hot Rod in Classics form, thrice if you count Henkei and BIS Rodimus and in MP form, but I'd love to see him get a Generations or RTS release in his Dodge Viper inspired form from Devastation.


    Would anyone else wanna see Hot Rod come out as a new Deluxe figure with his Viper alt mode or am I the only one?

    We can still have a Rodimus Prime later on.

    Give other characters like Blitzwing and the other Dinobots a shot first.

    Agreed. We have plenty of other characters that haven't even had a release yet.

    I'm talking about a Generations Hot Rod, not his Rodimus Prime form. In the Devastation series he has scanned an earth alt mode in the form of a suped up Dodge Viper and he looks wicked. I'd love to see him released in that style with his g1 color scheme and flame decals in tact.

    Rodimus Prime as a Classics toy would be something I'd be for. Especially if he turned into something like his Energon incarnation's rocket powered semi-truck mode.

    I'd love to see Blitzwing get made as much as the next guy but I'm just craving a Hot Rod in Viper form for my collection.

    Another vote for Blitzwing! Would also like to see Arcee, Hoist, and Trailbreaker first, we have enough Hot Rods for now.

    My vote is always going to be for a new Hot Rod till we get one that's actually decent.

    Well... we have RtS Hot Rod for now. Nothing to write home about, but there really should be more of a focus on toys for characters that haven't been done. If they were doing a new Rodimus, there would be no reason for them not to do a new Bumblebee.

    Hot Rod can wait. Its too early and a bunch of other characters haven't had there turn yet.

    I donno if the original Classics molds are really old enough yet to warrant new remakes. At least in Hasbro's eyes.
    Especialy since they just recently re-released a lot of the Classics molds in Generations, including the Hot Rod/Rodimus one.

    I think we are more likely to see some other characters, like maybe Blitz or a Dino bot, get a new figure in Classics/Generations before Hasbro restarts the cycle from the begining.

    Agreed. I'm loving this stuff like Straxus and Thunderwing. More of this and less of the go-to characters, plz.

    Agree with the others. Other characters need some loving first before Rodimus gets a second chance

    We can get more. All we have to do is whisper names like "Emirate Xaaron" in Aaron Archer's ear while he's sleeping and they're all ours.
