    Made this last September while caught up in the final season of Beast Hunters. I really love this mold (who doesn't though?) and decided to use it for my favorite bot. My own fever dream story is that Hot Rod is Arcee's twin brother. While she is disciplined, reliable and serious her brother is reckless, rebellious and cavalier. Hot Rod assumed the Vehicon mode in order to infiltrate the Decepticon base where his old mentor Kup was imprisoned. He decided to keep the controversial form as screw you to Ultra Magnus for throwing him in the brig.

    I really like the fact that the Bumblebee coming out for the new TV show is a retool of the vehicon, not really a fan of the idea of putting Rodimus in a straight up vehicon body but you made it work, though the face is creepy :)

    Warrior bee is definitely not a retool of tfp rid vehicon. There are some mild design similarities in thethe bots for sure but that's as far as it goes.

    I like what you've done, but I feel a different head would've worked better. Also, it's hard to tell if the figure is mostly red, maroon, or purple haha. The figure could also probably benefit from a tiny Autobot Reprolabel on the center piece in the front grill.

    Thanks! Sorry, for the color quality in these pics. I just couldn't get decent lighting. In hand he's a lot more vivd with a purplish maroon, almost neon orange and metallic gold. As for the head....I liked the idea of the Vehicon helmet but the epoxy putty I used was old and a paint to work with. I was going to fix it but the creepy alien muppet face has kinda grown on me :p

    For a while there I had this scene in my head where Tarn chopped off Hotrod's hand and reveals himself to be Roddy's father :D .
    (Tarn with James Earl Jones' voice probably sounds insanely cool!)
