    I don't think we're going to be seeing fan characters, unfortunately, as there is very likely to be strict Hasbro control on who goes into the films, and the toy designers have their own characters they'd like in.

    Well, there was a ton of speculation that Dino/Mirage WOULD be hot rod. Honestly, I think it would be hard to really find a place for Hot Rod in the film franchise as it is now, at least for a Hot Rod similar to his G1 incarnation. A brash, young Autobot Sportscar basically describes half the cast at this point, between Dino/Mirage, Sideswipe and Bumblebee. And seeing as they've liked to stick with one Autobot of each character, there'd be no place for another red Autobot (assuming Dino stays in the cast).

    In all honesty, we don't really need Hot Rod as the "young, brash" character anymore. When was the last time he was actually portrayed that way. If any character was to be leader of the Autobots in a future film, it'd have to be Bumblebee. (if he overcomes his speech impediment) Look at what IDW has done to his character in the last year or so, now that's a Bumblebee I'd like to see on the big screen.

    That flame job might not even really stick out in Robot mode, though. Look at the Nascar details on the Wreckers in bot mode.

    I don't think "has a decal on his hood" would be enough to distinguish Hot Rod from other Autobots, even in the relatively shallow characterizations of the Bayverse.

    Maybe you could see a Rodimus though, an Autobot commander, younger than Optimus with his own team, butting heads with him over the future of their race.

    I think hot rod would do better as a custom old school American muscle car....Chevy nova or '72 Impala SS. That way it would offset BB, sideswipe & mirage.

    I seen this thread title and though that "Whisp" was a typo of "Whirl".
