    Hi guys,

    anyone else been thinking how fans project guys are going to add on the trailor components to the robot form? Rodimus is quite small and I have been looking at their recent images of what it will look like. Still cannot work out how the shoulders are going to be attached and also how the guys at fans project claim that he is only going to be a tad smaller than city commander???

    Any thoughts?

    Not everything is going on Hot Rod from what I can tell. It looks to me like he is going to have the gun station from Rodimus Prime. Also if you look at his legs..there are components that add about an inch to his height. Looks like you keep his feet in alt mode and snap the parts extensions to his feet. His shoulders are from the top rear of the trailer by looking at the pic.

    Should I buy the Henkei Rodimus for the best color match? Or is the Classics version the one to use?

    I am using the Classics Hot Rod. I have a spare MOC Classics Hot Rod on my book case as well.

    If I didn't think Rodimus sucked, I'd totally get it. It looks nice.

    Clearly, he is too small to be packing all that body armor. However, I wonder if he wil come with a drone.

    I wasn't going to originally, but now I'm thinking of getting the Henkei Rodimus, and using either it or my Classics Rodimus in the Protector kit (whichever looks better when combined) and leaving the other to rep Hot Rod.


    Of course, what I really want to see is a Shattered Glass 'Despoiler' re-deco to match this guy!

    Goatee included.

    Doubt I'll get this. I liked Hot Rod much more as a character than Rodimus Prime, so I'd prefer to display him that way.

    Actually, I could do without Protector, Shadow Commander, Powered Commander... I'd like a shot to get a City Commander. Since I found out about that set, Ultra Magnus has looked naked there on the shelf. Can't say that for anyone else really.
