    Alright, so I've had this idea for a while, but I just sat down for a while and finally did it. I'm actually not very happy with the way some of the paint turned out, but whatever. Made from some styrene, and Animated BB head, and a Lockdown body. I even wrote up a bio for him. Comments/Crits like always.

    Hot Rod - Autobot Elite Guard Espionage

    "Speed? I am speed."

    Hot Rod is the youngest cadet to ever graduate from the Autobot Acadmey and be put into the Elite Guard. Sentinel Prime recognized Hot Rod's talents very early on, and Ultra Magnus recognizes Hot Rod as the best spy the Autobot Elite Guard has ever had. Why? Because he's never been caught. Hot Rod refuses to wear the Elite Guard badge because he fears what the Decepticons would do to him if he was ever caught. According to his rank, his name should be "Rodimus Prime", but Hot Rod doesn't conform to anybody. Besides, if he does disobey the rules, who's going to catch him afterwards?

    Galactic Powers & Abilities:
    > Capable of reaching speeds of mach 6 in vehicle mode.
    > Engine weapon shoots bursts of flames in robot mode.
    > Is believed to be forged from the same protoform as the Autobot Bumblebee.

    See, I wanted to do that, but it made him look too tall, lanky, and Lockdown-ish.

    Thanks for the comments guys!

    The alt mode is nice. The BB head kind of works, but feels a little chubby. It's definitely the closest match out of those available. The crest was a nice touch.

    What Red Sed. :D 
    I'm not entirely sure about the face - just seems a little big-faced, if you know what I mean. But it is a pretty good match, and the crest helps a lot.

    One little crit on the bio, though - Mach 6, for a grounded vehicle? That's about twice as fast as our fastest jet for years, over 4,000 mph. I'd suggest neutering him a bit, down to Mach 2 or 3 - still should be streets ahead of his nearest rival, but far less likely to hit walls... :p
