Do you like or dislike Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime? Why? Is there anyone out there who dislikes him because you feel like it's his fault Optimus Prime died? He is definitely a character where you either love him or hate him. I'm a big fan of Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime. My main memories of him are from the 1986 movie though. I loved the opening scene between him and Daniel and where he tried to take on the Decepticons that were aboard the hijacked Autobot ship single-handedly. I also like the famous (or infamous depending on how you feel.) "Arise Rodimus Prime" scene as well. I just think he's a great character and I wish there was an updated Rodimus Prime toy in the Classics/Universe line. Fans project may be on their way to fixing that though so we'll see. Thanks for looking and/or posting!!
