How can any of you respect hot rod/ rodimus since he got optimus killed in g1?
He did not. Megatron had already reached the gun and Optimus hadn't a clue. My guess is without Hot Rod's interference they both would have been killed.
It helps that a lot of us Rodimus fans don't actually believe that he got Optimus killed. That's just an excuse that the haters throw out to legitimize their dislike of the Chosen One.
I'm sure plenty of Autobots would have died under Optimus' command, and he's still respected.
Technically Duke from G.I. Joe got him killed, as the idea to kill Optimus off came from the plan to kill Duke off in the G.I.Joe Movie. The powers that be Hasbro green lighted Duke to die and wanted to keep the two series at par with each other and more or less ordered OP to be killed off. TFTM came out first and we all know about the huge backlash it got. That backlash knocked the G.I.Joe movie out of a theatrical release and saved his life , as well as killing several other proposed movies.
I got no Beef over Hot Rod's interference in the 1986 movie, his acting as King of emos in season 3 as Rodimus , well thats another matter
Optimus dies every other week. Why hold Hot Rod accountable?
I'm a Decepticon supporter. Therefore, I laud Hot Rod for getting Optimus Prime killed.
i don't place blame on Hot Rod.
But i think he was a punk for thinking he could step into a brawl with the likes of those two and have a happy ending.
In a more realistic film, the moment he jumped Megatron, Hot Rod's neck woulda been snapped, Optimus shot up to hell (no gloating for that sucker haymaker punch) and Megs would have had a victory.
Didn't we just discuss this?
Hot Rod didn't get Prime killed. HASBRO did.
And then in the G1 Marvel Comics, he freaken killed HIMSELF!
...and over a freaken video game, no less!
I can't respect the Skuxxoid for not taking better care of his wife and kid . . .
im just looking for reactions these were all funny to read thank you guys for making me laugh
So does that make this spam or you a troll if you were posting just to get reactions rather than a discussion?
I'm guessing troll.
Hot Rod was at the wrong place at a wrong time. I'd personally love if Ultra Magnus became the leader, but I guess that was too obvious since he was a repaint of Prime. I'm not a huge fan of Hot Rod/Rodimus, but I don't hate him. He's just another Autobot for me, I never took him seriously as a leader.
