    When I was a kid, I had a couple of G2 comics and thought Hot Rod was the man in them. Somehow, I missed out on the movie, I mainly say reruns of the first 2 G1 series, got some of the comics and toys, and then when G2 came out I got some of those comics and toys.
    I liked him being Prime's right hand man, as opposed to being Rodimus or Kup's "Young'un".

    I think that one of the first things he does in the next movie is call Hot Rod to Earth.

    But what should his alt mode be? His original alt mode is very cool, but it's also cool to try and reimagine him as an earth car.

    I think he should be a real tricked out sports car; like, not so much in a Pimp My Ride kind of way, but sort of something that looked like it rolled out of a whacky mechanic's oversized garden shed. He should have his signature exhausts and spoilers.

    Here's one suggestion:

    Pretty cool, huh?

    :p 

    hot rod needs to stay the hell out of this new movie series. if he's in a new movie, I'll be too worried about optimus to notice anything else going on. probably stand up and scream "GET AWAY FROM HIM" if they had any scenes together.

    I think Hot Rod would perfect as a Ford GT, it's possible since Ford already worked with makin Barricade possible. I really don't want Hot Rod as a Hot Rod like some muscle car or old 30's ford coupe, just doesn't fit him. But I want Tracks in as well as a C-6!

    I said HOT ROD, not RODIMUS PRIME. I don't get how many of the people in this topic complain about people being "Negative" about the movie, yet it's okay to be "negative" in the most vicious ways possible about a classic character.

    Hot Rod should be in the movies because of his prominence as a character throughout the Movie, Season 3 of the cartoon, later G1 comics, and G2.

    I hated Hot Rod, and Rodimus. Second rate at best, and certainly not classic IMO.

    Hot Rod was only in the G2 comics, not toyline. and the G2 comics didnt sell well at all.

    Hot Rod's prominence in the series is only because HE KILLED OPTIMUS PRIME.

    So it's likely that if he was in a new movie, HE'D DO IT AGAIN.

    I'll add that I'm not a hot rod hater, I like him. I just don't want him anywhere near a movie.
