    Masterpiece UM and Prime's arm flip up communicator has pictures of all the MP that been released. On the MP-01B Black Optimus Prime he has Hot Rod picture on his communicator. Hmmmmmmmmmm???? Maybe its a hint that Hot Rod will be the next Autobot MP?

    That would be a cool little Easter Egg if it was Hot Rod. I suppose it's not impossible either. We'll just have to wait and see....

    It was also hinted at being a season 3 character, so this is a very likely possibility.

    I'd LOVE a Masterpiece Hot Rod.

    Not Rodimus Prime.

    Hot Rod.

    That's still not MP. Alternity is it's own thing.

    it was the 20th anniversary prime version. it also had starscream as well.....bumblebee is the only exception to the "communicator hint". i have a feeling we will get rodimus prime next.

    he was in 15 min of a movie. not an entire season and most of a movie.

    rodimus is much more important.

    plus they said it was season three. except for 30 seconds here and there, hot rod wasnt in season three.

    Not only that, but if you did count alternity, than you probably SHOULD count the KP Rodimus they already did (who btw is really not much further from G1 Rodimus than alternity BB is from G1- both take significant liberties)

    Well, current signs point to this conclusion- we'll have to wait and see.

    A leader like Rodimus makes sense. Little repaint potential though.

    Yeah, the "communicator hint" thing has come up before. As others have said, it's not 100% consistent, as the original MP1 also featured Bumblebee on the communicator; but you could argue that, as MP Convoy was originally conceived as a standalone figure, the first iteration can be the exception to the rule, or something. Certainly, since then, the communicator pics on other versions of MP Convoy seem have been used as a nod & a wink.

    A Hot Rod, or (personally, i think more likely) Rodimus Prime, & Galvatron are among the most logical & likely choices for the next MPs, in any case.

    The downfall to an MP Rodimus is that the upcoming Fans Project armor kit for classics Hot Rod will likely end up inferior to the MP.


    Kind of a weird thought, but I'm really looking forward to that set. >_>

    Hot Rod / Rodimus would be awesome, and I'd certainly get him, though I wonder if Hasbro isn't lobbying for Galvatron so they can release him in the US through Wal Mart in 2011 and protect the trademark on his name, and market to all the fans who want an animation accurate Galvatron.

    Because you know that Hasbro will release whichever toy this ends up being in the US eventually, and I'm not sure if "Rodimus" has that same amount of fan demand as Galvatron.
