Anyone have any idea whe me could start seeing the box design and in hand images of this guy?
Probably not until a week or two before his release. :/
When I’m feb is he being released ?
February 24, 2018.
I am hoping for a better looking box than MP28 for this one. Hopefully a homage to his targetmaster G1 box art.
I just hope the chrome on this version is corrected . Having it flake off and wearing off right out of the box better be a thing of the past .
I'm 100% confident it will be based on the Fusos, Sunstreaker, the Soundwave and cassette reissues from this spring as well as the Hasbro Asia Ironhide reissue from late last year. Chrome's as it should be on all those recent releases.
My MP28 still has perfect Chrome. Im a lucky one.
My MP28 has Schrödinger's chrome. (Never took him out of the box, you see.)
The chrome on my KO MP28 is still flawless.
I'm thinking this guy is going to be a TFNation pickup. Want to see how my money runs with POTP and the other MPs, but on the other hand, Targetmaster Hot Rod was my absolute favourite growing up. I'm still not 100% ruling out the Legends one either, come to think.
Shouldn’t the little side skirts have white on them as well as the front skirt ?
My MP-28 is in pretty good shape. The only thing that annoys is the asymmetry of the guns.
I remember the guns on the original G1 toy were that way too.
Really need to put in a pre-order for this release. I only saw the Transformers movie when I was in my early teens, while my original toys were part of my early childhood - so having Hot Rod a deeper red reminiscent of the G1 toy kinda suits me better. The unpainted shoulder intakes, Firebolt, it's all working for me. Would prefer a blue windshield but I can live without it.
Will definitely be painting Firebolt's face red.
Do you know what I would have liked with this one. Some changeable faces. I’d love a smiling face for Hot rod.
Wish they'd all come with a neautral, smiling, and yelling face! Seems that's going to be the norm from here on out, thankfully.
Will this guy come with everything MP28 had just in different colors?
No. The only MP-28 accessory carried over is one of the guns but in maroon.
Darn. What a bummer.
