    What im saying is do you think hasbro should have put hotrod in smokescreens place. If you could paint smokescreen a bit defernetly and change a few things and called his hotrod, it would make sence. Think. He has that young, wreakless attitude and looks up to optimus alot. Is that not what hotrod did in g1?? And smokescreen has saved team primes asses time to time and has done alot of important things.

    Smokescreen > Hot Rod

    Why does Smokescreen need to be Hot Rod?

    Personally, I think we should kill him off and have Hot Rod, or in Aligned's case, Hot Shot, show up instead.

    Hasbro did say the reason why he's called Hot Shot in WFC DS is because they wanted to explore how he got the name "Rodimus", this would be a perfect way to do so.

    He reminds me a lot of Hot Rod, which is a big reason that I really like him. But he's Smokescreen, which is fine. In the Beast Machines series, Cheetor also reminded me of Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime. But he wasn't HR/RP, he was Cheetor. Again, that was fine. A cool character is a cool character.

    I agree. I hope that he dont become leader and the call him rodimus prime. They are two totally different characters, but i think that they definatly should have replaced him with hotrod.

    Smokescreen is basically Hotrod in every way. He looks like him, acts like him, sounds like him, has a vehicle mode that fits him better than Smokescreen typically, and looks to be undergoing a very similar storyarch. There is literally nothign about him that defines him as a wholey seperate character other than the name. Any incongruitites exist larger within other characters in the show who have namesakes.

    I firmly believe his identity as Smokescreen was created for the sole purpose of not spoiling his developement for fans, as Hotrod would have made everything all too obvious.

    Seriously, look back. Replace his name and colours and it fits all too well. His semi-spiritual-hinted-kind-of-thing with A3, his "he's super important but we won't say why just yet" kind of forshadowing. It's actually quite well done. It's just a shame they went with a name that doesn't lend itself well to the whole "imus Prime" thing. :lol

    Because he behaves nothing like Smokescreen and Wheeljack should be called Drift

    Should Cheetor be called Sunstreaker? No?

    Then there you go. Just because they share similar characteristics doesn't exactly mean a character is another character. Unless you're Optimus. If you're a red truck with blue legs, prepare to be Prime'd.

    No.

    Smokescreenimus Prime begs to differ.

    Okay, that's pushing it a bit. :lol

    No, but should he become a Prime, I wouldn't be surprised if his name changes to Rodimus;)
