    When Prime asked for more soldiers to fight the growing threat of Decepticons on Earth. he had no idea what he was asking for. The youngest Autobot ever to graduate from the Elite Guard Academy, he has all of the potential in the world. However, he's also headstrong, reckless and has a penchant for running red lights here on Earth. But, Prime sees something in this young bot. He just hopes he's still around to see him become something more.

    Thanks, man! Right now, jusst a few more Animated ideas (Top Secret!), and one more Cyclonus for eBay.

    LOL, Gracias Hombre. When ii first bought Jazz, the exhasut pipes said Hot Rod to me. I don't think I'm the first one with that idea, so I'm sure we'll see a few more down the road.

    Thank you much, Big Homie. :D

    I know why they have to for alt mode... But the pipes look odd in bot mode with that curve in them.

    Definitely a cool looking figure though.

    I only I could get into the animated line.

    I'm not digging the gun. Goes against most of what we've seen of Animated, where the Autobots don't use guns.
    Otherwise, though, this is the best Animated Hot Rod I've seen yet.
    Awesome job!

    Your very welcome, I think you might be right I wouldn't be surprised to see an animated Hot Rod made by someone else. So right now I just dig this one and if there others, well I'll like them too.

    Your right...I didn't catch that in the pics. The door panels on his arm do rotate still, and I sanded and painted the entire door as well, so no spots of white show as they flip. I may need to retake my pics, now. Good catch!

    :D  I still wanna see Big hanks version, too.

    I was really worried that I wouldn't get the decals right, they are the dry transfer ones you cant reposition. 5 beers later though, it worked out great :lol 

    They don't, huh? I haven't noticed that either. God, I'm getting old.

    No, they don't. Check it:
    Optimus Prime has an axe, grapplers and a fire extinguisher
    Ratchet has magnets
    Bulkhead has a wrecking ball
    Bumblebee has electro-stingers
    Prowl has a hologram projector and some shuriken
    Jazz has nunchuks
    Ultra Magnus has a hammer
    Sentinel Prime has a shield and a lance
    Ironhide has iron-skin
    Wasp has electro-stingers
    Elita-One had a "skill-absorber"
    Blurr has super-speed and a sword-ish weapon (toy-only)
    The Dinobots all have fire-breath and blunt weapons of beatingyouupwithness.

    The only exception is Omega Supreme, for obvious reasons...
    Essentially, the Autobots were all made gun-less to push on the fact that unlike the Decepticons, they are not designed for war, so they make due with other skills to combat the 'Cons.
