    hey d00ds,

    i was flippin a mag and saw the above poster and it reminded me of something that i never figured out:

    whos the car chasing hot rod in the bottom left corner?

    btw, this is the best poster of teh 3 version, UKers get the cool stuff, besides the fact they get the shaft distribution wise.

    holla!

    *Googles Transformers The Movie UK poster*

    Voilá

    Ya know, KA, I've never known the answer to this. It looks like a damn Targetmaster car... but that can't be right at all.

    Personally, I think it's a very poorly drawn Kup. Depending on how you look at the pic, he might not be chasing him at all - but following just off to the side and shooting. Though it doesn't look like Kup, it could be him just because he's not featured anywhere else on the poster - and probably should be.

    I agree that it is probably a bad interpretation of Kup. It has some of the right hood design, but it is stretched like a sports car.

    Springer, maybe? It doesn't really look like anyone, but it could be either Kup or Springer in my opinion. It's closer in colour to Kup, and Hot Rod hung around with Kup for a lot of the film, but there are similarities in shape to Springer (he appears to have a longer cockpit and a 'fin' on the back).

    I've always taken it to be a poorly-drawn and mis-coloured Kup.

    As for posters, I've always preferred the Japanese one!

    I assumed it was Kup as well. I think it's meant to be based off the bit when they race to get to the city before the blast doors are closed.
