    So my son is "graduating" from kindergarten next month and I decided to surprise him with a "graduation" present. He loves Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime from the '86 movie, but since there's no way in hell I'm getting the Protector armor or Masterpiece for him (and the Titanium version sucks), I cobbled together some junker parts and a few pieces from my son's Legos into this:

    Yes it's essentially Hot Rod pulling a pop-up camper, but I figure my kid won't care.

    UPDATE: Got a Classics Rodimus for a more cohesive look...

    Will surprise my kid with the upgrade soon.

    This is about as absurd as a space Winnebago, so it works fantastically!! I like that you called it a popup camper. That's perfect!

    AWESOME, i love the mash up of classics hotrod parts and the g1 roddyprime trailer, i like how you parts swapped the classics hot rod with BIS hot rod, looks like a new hotrod all together, the camper works really well, and the use of the hot rod legs on the camper really makes the car flow through to the back of the camper,

    i take it by the lego piece on the tip of the camper that you fixed a lego bit in the hollow back of hotrods car mode,

    let us know what he thinks!!!

    Wow, this is unbelievably cool. You've really integrated things together well with this.

    Well, I presented it to my son and he absolutely loves the pop-up camper of death...

    ...although he did say how much cooler it'd be if it could combine with Rodimus as a "power-up mode." (Let's hope he never sees a picture of the Fans Project Protector armor.)
