    Hi.


    I've been fairly out of the loop for aome time now - so sorry if this has been asked many a time already - but is there any word on whether a version of Hot Rod and/or Rodimus Prime will appear in TF: Animated?


    (If the Primes are all lower in rank to Ultra Magnus, room could be found for a Rodumis Prime based in another part of the galaxy - maybe at an Animated-verse equivalent of Nebulos?)

    As long as they don't make him like he was in Season Three of the American G1 cartoon, I won't mind his inclusion.

    You sure you didn't mean Wheelie? Hot Rod is the awesomest next to Waspinator.

    Wheelie>Hot Rod

    We might see him, but I hope that if we do, it's Rodimus Prime, and he's been recently appointed to that rank.

    I thought at the Animated BOTCON panel they said it's a possibility and if at all maybe in season 3.

    I liked Energon Rodimus. Let's hope they bring on a Rodimus Prime that all us roddi fans have been waiting for!

    I remember it said at the Botcon panel that Rodimus Prime was an early name candidate for what would become Sentinel Prime, but Hasbro preferred that Rodimus not be the arrogant dick pain-in-the-ass character.

    He should be Rodimus and be a Prime that's been stripped of his rank for some terrible past deed. Even worse than Optimus, who still keeps his 'Prime' rank. Ratchet knows what happened, but there's some kind of executive order from Magnus forbidding him or anyone else in the know to say.
    I like the idea of a rogue outcast Autobot with a past that may come into play in later shows.

    I'd love to see Rodimus. Maybe he could be even higher ranking than Magnus and command the entire army back on Cybertron. Though I like the rogue Prime idea too.

    Only if he meets the following criteria-

    A. Has a big chin.

    B. Has an episode where he's a dick.

    C. Has an episode where he's a pansy.

    D. Doesn't get Optimus killed.

    If he shows up, it'll probably be as an obscure character and not a major plot-driving character.

    I would think that if we get this character, it will be as Rodimus Prime, since the basic character description of Hot Rod is covered by Bumblebee. Personally, I think it would be pretty cool to have Optimus Prime, Sentinel Prime and Rodimus Prime all in one show.

    Rodimus was orginally going to be Animated but the charecter they were thinking of Rodimus would soon change to Sentinel...i say he's got as good chance.

    With the exception of "D" he would just be Sentinel Prime and we definitely don't need two of them.:lol 

    He would have to be named Rodimus since Hasbro can't use the name Hot Rod anymore. :cry  Why don't they just put Autobot on the front of it like the did a few others?

    definitely want to see hot rod. but i don't want hot rod prime, or rodimus prime or anything like that, i want him to be a new rank, basically the rank below prime, the prime trainee if you will. i think it would be very fitting if hot rod was put on the elite guard in such a position under sentinel, because i'd kind of like to see sentinel instill his 'be an arrogant prick to anybody lower than you' attitude, but then have him go start liking the friendship style teamwork of prime, and switch over. it would be a good story for a kid's show, easy message, easy way to have dick-rod and puss-rod self contained. :lol 
    and definitely a good chance for characterization on both primes. but if he gets optimus killed, and then gets stranded on a planet forcing magnus to say he can't deal with that now...i will not be pleased. and for the love of god, do not infuse him with the power of the allspark making him rodimus prime...
