    Ever since the animated Movie, I have always have a soft spot for Rodimus. I like him for his imperfection as a character. Don't get me wrong, Optimus Prime is great but he just just too perfect too be realistic as a character.

    This is a collection of Hot Rod / Rodimus Prime figures that I have collected for the past year. I am still missing some and will update the pictures when I obtain them. Enjoy the sea of Red, Yellow and Oranges~

    Great collection, man. I'm jealous of the Universe Legends Rodimus, as I've never been able to find one in my area.
    Here's a shot of my Hot Rod Collection, the primary difference being that mine are all open.

    Also, when we got married last year, my wife got me a special groom's cake with a massive, sugar Hot Rod on top. The baker seems to have used both classics and G1 Hot Rod designs for inspiration, as there's hints of both. He got a little melty and beat up after the wedding before being entombed in our freezer. Here's a shot of him. Sadly, I never got a picture of him in his prime as he used to be much more detailed and accurate. It's my favorite Hot Rod for obvious sentimental reasons...that and he cost more than most of my Hot Rod toys combined.

    Cheers from a fellow Hot Rod fan!

    The fan's project upgrade and Animated Rodimus are 2 of the most anticipated figures on my wishlist now~

    I got my Metalverse at the online Jap store hobbylink. They were offering a 65% discount at one point. I have no idea about now. You might want to give it a try there.

    it is still available at HLJ for 65% off. I wish I had the money. Oh well to get a collection like this, I can only go one piece at a time.

    Nice collection and nice find! That's the size G1 Rodimus Prime toy should have been! @ least he would have been able to stand up to Galvatron!!!

    Glad you all like it. Anymore info on what other orange, yellow and red Rodimus/Hot Rod am I missing?

    I know I am missing the Chase Scf Rodimus and the rare Super Hybrid Collection Rodimus Convoy. Would like to know more.

    *Note* Recently obtain the Mega SCF Hot Rodimus, Heroes of Cybertron Rodimus and Ehobby Crystal Hot Rod but no time to post, so those 3 are out.
