Sorry if this is old, but the first I've seen of it.
That does look better.
Ya know since I got Classics Rodimus I've been trying to pin down why it bothered me, I mean I love Hot Rod, love him... but it felt more like Energon Rodimus. It hit me when I saw that, the orange chest. THAT is Hot Rod. I'm usually not one to buy just to upgrade a figure I already own but damn... I might have to make an exception
That looks great. I like it better. Good job on Astrotrain and this.
Cool, good to see it finally! I'll get it for completeness' sake, but I still far prefer the Hasbro version. This may be more G1 accurate (at least as far as the chest color... not so much with the chrome spoiler), but frankly, G1 Hot Rod was pretty gaudy. I really like how the Hasbro Classics version traded the red for a deeper maroon, ditched the orange chest, and traded the yellow for gold flames (okay, I guess you could make an argument that gold is gaudier than yellow).
Classics Rodimus is just classier-looking. To me it felt like what Hot Rod always should have been.
But like I said, I'll still get this little guy. He's still a nice figure, and I like variety.
Still like Classics Rodimus better. I infinitely prefer the red chest over that tan orange.
That makes Henkei Megs still the only repaint I'm interested in. And thank god - I didn't want to have to re-buy all these figures again.
NICE. I'd buy it if I didn't already have the Botcon version of the mold.
"Now with forty percent more ORANGE!"
Not bad, but another in the "not enough for a purchase" Henkei club for me. The Hasbro version just looks better balanced overall to me (though not as gee-wunny)
Dear god, that's a must have for me. Not only does it have G1-style flames and an overall more vibrant color palette, but the windows appear to be dark, translucent blue. I'm also really liking the spoiler. I was expecting silver chrome, and I hated that idea, but the gold chrome spoiler (and headlights?) work pretty well.
It looks good, I don't think it's any better or worse than Hasbro's version. If I could get it for the same price as the Hasbro one, I gladly would, but since that's not possible, I'm more than satisfied with what I have.
Sold. I'm on a Rodimus-kick lately (Robot Heroes and FAB Fire Blast Prime) so I'm getting one... most def...
Nice! I don't know if I do want this. Don't care too much for the gold or chrome foil finish of the Henkeis.
Consider me sold!!
One of the few good looking Henkai imo, but not enough change for me to replace my Hasbro one.
Love the rear fender.
I got stuck with an extra Classics Hot Rod, it's been sitting here collecting dust. I was gonna make a custom Stunticon Wildrider out of it, then I was gonna just sell it. But now I might just paint the spoiler gold. I dunno, I still like the custom Wildrider idea. Decisions decisions!
Maybe I'll just strap a bottle rocket to it & blow it to hell.
Ok, that looks a lot better. I thought the rear spoiler was going to be silver chrome. But Gold Chrome is 100% better. I'm getting this one.
Hasbro version is good enough for me.
hmm i might get it. i like the little things. the orange on the fore arms. the slight variation of red for the crest on his head. i cant help but want this toy for some odd reason.
Yeah, this is another purchase for me. Looks like if they keep this up I may get the entire Henkei line. It's consistently improved upon everything I didn't like about Classics (which I already loved to begin with).
