    I think it would be cool for Hot Rod to be in the movie,but what do you think he will transform into?

    Not a Ferrari.

    Also he's voiced by Chris Pine.

    Well if we want something that would undeniably scream 'Hot Rod' then I think the closest match is the Koenigsegg CCX, but realistically I think the new Viper SRT would be a better shot. Or they could go and subvert our expectations and make him an actual hot rod

    Another Movie Hot Rod thread that over looks that fact Hasbro can't legally use the name "Hot Rod" in any form, that "Rodimus Prime" means little to a wider audience, and is forever associated with the extended absence of Prime to others.

    And "Rodimus" isn't even a word. It was only created as a stop gap after Hasbro lost the ability to use the name "Hot Rod"

    it won't work, and is best left aside.

    A sort of L.A. pimped out tuner car. Glowing lights underneath. He could have that young, don't care attitude with that type of car.

    My post of this wound up over in the fan art section but since it's relevant to the thread I guess I will show it here...

    Also I agree with AutoVolt that Chris Pine as a voice actor would tend to fit most iterations of the character really, really well.

    Miscreant - could they not even get around that issue by calling him "Autobot Hot Rod" the way they did with "Autobot Jazz" for the 2007 movie? I know from old leaked script treatments of "Transformers 2" before the writers strike, Kurtzman and Orci initially had Hot Rod as a major new character who turned into a red ferrari...that of course seems to have morphed into Dino/Mirage by the third movie, perhaps due to the issues you speak of I guess?

    That's too g1.. If we use that, after that all those extrimist will want Ironhide to be red minibus, and after that, megatron must be a gun :) 

    Ok looks like we have a deal here for this thread.. Let's write to Bay... :)

    Hot Rod for TF4? To me it's unlikely. Because i think the producers are making things less obvious to us.

    Like for example, i thought Unicron was going to be in TF3, then they announce Shockwave was the lead villian. Then all the sudden it's Sentinel Prime! o_o Didn't see that coming until the movie was released.
