    Just some reworking of Hot Rod. I wish I had some darker paint for his legs, but the silver will do for now. I did it because I wanted a more show accurate version for my comic.

    I like the hands bit, they're a bit large, but still work with it..I see that the ball joint thing for the wrist is splitting your forearms open..You could probably sand it down or cut it down to fit in better..I'm thinking that'll stress the plastic eventually or break the screw plastic bit. The silver on the legs seems a bit over powering--But if its all you had, you go with it then I guess. Can he still transform?

    He has Rodimus's Mr. Fantastic leg syndrome.

    Otherwise, AWESOME!

    Legs seem too long... hands a little too big... what was wrong with his old spolier?

    Unless you're trying to make him Rodimus and not Hot Rod?

    I LOVE the coloring you did to the legs, and the hands ARE a great idea though. I'm curious as to your thoughts on the spoiler, though?

    The arms are pretty durable. This is about the tenth time I've chosen to swap out his hands for alternator hands. I actually don't mind the arms being "split" by the balljoint. I actually might sand it down though, since I'm thinking of coloring the round ends of the arm orange like they're meant to be and want them to appear connected and not pushed apart. He can't transform at the moment. The hands don't get in the way, but I positioned the legs when screwing so that they would be longer (there is extra leg detail that can't be seen because of how the legs are normally dispalyed, with the lower legs covering his "knees"). I did this to make him somewhat show accurate. If assembled properly, he would transform fine.

    I changed the spoiler to get his arms to position so that the wheels point back like his show appearance. This is Hot Rod. I'll still change the spoiler if he needs to transform during the comic, though.

    Ah, I see.

    He kinda has a bit of Tit' Rodimus Prime symdrome, but I guess it can't really be helped.

    There are many sites with Hot Rod galleries for reference, but I'm afraid that I only had one Hot Rod.
