    Wow I'm starting alot of threads today lol.

    Just checked the Feedback section, couldnt help but notice that there isnt a thread about him. Anyone have him? or know of a review of him? the only one I have is BiS, and mine is kinda falling apart. How is he?

    Yeah, they convinced me not to get him. He looks good, but doesn't match so well with the Protector armor. Now if Fansproject released a repaint... eff me.

    It actually looks a LOT better then I expected in the Protector armor. I might actually have to pick this one up now. I wasn't wanting it until I saw those pics.

    Man I didn't realize there were nine versions of this mold... and I own all of them.

    I think he looks great on his own, I wouldn't waste that sexy hood tampo by sticking him in the armor.

    I was surprised as well, who would have thought Hot Rod would get that many repaints, especially for someone who hasn't had that much screentime since the 80s :lol  Honestly I would have expected Prime or Bumblebee.

    Some I took pictures above, he's really great - the best version of the figure yet.

    Also there are 10 versions of the mold as Battle in Space is different than Challenge at Cybertron (no Autobot symbol and the flames are more defined on BiS).

    I actually think it looks great in the armor. Rather than matching shade to shade, I think the difference in tones complement well.

    I have yet to see a Rodimus mold/Protector pairing that didn't look absolutely awesome.

    I'm liking the two tone look this one has in Protector armor as well. It harkens to the animation in my eyes. It even looks pretty good in alt mode. All FP would have to do to color match it better would be to release armor with the orange part done in that bright orange flame shade,
