    Yeah, it is Hot Rod with Sideburn's paint job. IIRC, in RID his name was supposed to BE Hot Rod, but the rights to the name were lost. I could be wrong on that, so don't take it as the gospel truth or anything....

    I think he was asking if Hot Rod in the comic was a Viper and then suggesting it would've been cooler if he was a Ford GT.

    Considering RID Sideburn's super paint scheme is based on Hotrod, it only makes sense.

    yeah but the whole fact hot rod transforms into sideburn's dodge viper form that is so totally a bizarre coincidence

    does anybody here remember that rid hot rod kitbash someone did over on transtopia a couple of years or so back?

    the one where the guy used wedges head for hot rod with the rear window beingfitted onto the front of the sideburns lower legs

    that is what idw hot rod reminds me of right now and from the looks of it hot rods new robot mode is modeled after alternators mirage robot mode character model wise.

    Not really. Hotrod's always been a sportscar/race car (fast car), it's only fitting he be a viper. Though it is obvious he is similar to RID Sideburn in vehicular mode.


    Although I will not argue his Robot mode does share similarities with Alt Mirage. (Perhapes a nod to Alt Rodimus?)

    Interesting. I never knew that before. I like Hot Rod's IDW mode.
