In order of preference; Animated, Classics, Titanium, Alternators, G1
I'm going to have to go with Alternators Hot Rod. That SDCC exclusive is sharp. I like that it has the flames unlike the KISS Players version (still missing the fishing pole though). I like Classics Roddy, but not quite as much as the Alternators version. The G1 is nice when I'm feeling nostalgic. Despise the animated aesthetic, so animated Roddy will never be high on my list. Titanium is nice, but it's more of a Rodimus Prime figure. Doesn't really belong in this conversation IMO.
Hey, where's the Energon version?
I actually dig the Micromaster Hot Rodimus that came with Star Convoy. It's everything you like about the original Hot Rod, but now he's bite-sized!
Of the ones pictured, I really like the Classics and Titanium updates. Interesting transformations and some cool sculpts on both of them. Hot Rod still looks a souped-up speedster and Rodimus looks like he could beat the crap out of anything.
Wanna send one to me?
My Alts, 6" Tit, and Classics. Also clear Animated and Classics in my loot.
Animated, Universe, Alternator, G1, Titanium
Alternators, Classics/Animated (I honestly can't choose), G1, Titanium, Energon
I'll go ahead and throw down a list with some explanation.
Great toy. Absolutely a near-perfect update to the original. Only shame is that you don't have (or didn't use) the Henkei release.
It's G1. "But you only like it for its nostalgia factor." No crap. That's why I like Transformers to begin with.
Honestly, this kind of gets the default because of my distaste for the remaining two. I'm sure it's not a bad toy, I just don't own it myself. I'm just not much a fan of Animated.
Never cared for the line myself, but it seemed to hold up much better than Titaniums.
It isn't much of a assume that this is the worst toy out of the bunch. May be a decent representation of Rodimus Prime, but there isn't a whole lot to do with the figure after you get past that.
Animated, as it's the only one I have, XP
my favorite: animated
2nd favorite: alternator
least favorite:classics, he's just not very good. The transformation is fine, but the proportions are wacky and he doesn't fit in with classics/ universe at all because of it (imo). I want a new one with the same sort of design choices as cyclonus. I also dislike the window shape on the alt mode. The toy will probably be fine once the FP upgrade is released though so whatever.
Kissplay Hot Rodimus is my favorite.
Henkei is the best.
Animated Rodimus is my favourite, followed by Alt/Kissplay (neither really surpases the other, they're both cool) then Classics, then everyone else.
I'm not a super big Hot Rod/Rodimus fan, but I do like his toys.
my favorite one is animated due to it is the only one i have.
I'm going to go with the Animated figure. And I don't even own one yet.
Kiss then Henkei
cybertron clocker's pipes fit on his arms, looks good
my favorite right now is Alt out of those ones, then Classics, but not having animated rodimus right now makes it not a true comparison
Going to go with:
1. space held for MP toy (you know it will be one of the very best versions)
2. BT- Not particularly faithful to original, but one of the very best toys produced. The arm blaster (which was a fishing pole once for about 5 minutes) is a wonderful touch.
3. May go to animated (but I don't have one yet, so we'll see)
4. G1- Yes it's a brick, but it's a great looking brick. He only has one pose- but it's a good pose.
5. Henkei- I LOVE the car update- the robot is kind of a mess. Bad head sculpt, speed fin is not very visible in bot mode, just an awkward, chunky body.
6. Titanium- did they ever make a good titanium figure? I know there are ones better than him, but it was kind of a troubled line from the start.
