    At least a repaint/remold of the Hot Shot figure? I'm hoping so, as that's the only guy I collect now. :D

    I doubt that Rodimus would be associated with Hot Shot if he ever showed up in Prime

    I wouldn't be surprised if it happens, because Hot Shot from the WFC DS game is Hot Rod/Rodimus.

    Hopefully at some point. I love my turbo revving young punks. I'd love to have Will Friedle voice him.

    I know, but Prime so far hasn't exactly followed what WFC has stated. A Prime Rodimus would have to look like the Hot Shot toy if they were to be the same character, and we would get a Prime Hot Shot, not Rodimus

    Or, Hot Shot is the early name, then BECOMES Rodimus, and appearance may change (that does NOT mean the Prime:WFC aesthetics).

    If they ever have a Roddy, I hope it's the Superlink one. Loved him and he had a cool design. G1 Rodimus...meh.

    I remember his TFWiki article saying something about "his journey to becoming a Prime". It didn't have any links to who said that, but I think it's a valid quote, which brings me to wonder if everybody in the show is wrong when they say Optimus is the last Prime.. ?

    Would love to see Hot Rod. He is one of my favorites. I actually like him red as long as he doesn't look like a trailer....

    A young and developing Hot Rod would possibly take away from Arcee and Bumblebee at this point.

    God, I hope not. I know Hot Shot was created as a Hot Rod substitute due to the trademark problem with the name “Hot Rod”, but the character really has really become something of his own. He has his own unique traits, quirks (jaam!?) visual difference and his own share of fans.

    I think it be a disservice to both characters and fans by just simplifying and making them a amalgamation of both characters.

    Now, if they ever did put Rodimus in Prime, would be awesome if they had some kind of homage to this.

    We shall see. Despite what the DS War For Cybertron game showed, things do change.
