    IIRC, wasn't Mirage originally quoted at Botcon as a June release?? The colelctor club newsletter says May.... so if this is due before Rumble, I'm thinking maybe Late June???

    Just a random thought....

    Considering that The XLR is made in the same plant as the Corvette, chances are, the same people are involved in making the decission. I look forward to this, and I don't think it'll be the same transformation as Tracks. It could be a good Megatron. I'm still not big on "downsizing" these characters though.

    Fair enough. I didn't intend to imply anything about your credibility. I was just unfamiliar with the site and had no idea how reliable it was.

    There are four good Cadillacs, CTS-V, STS-V, XLR-V and Cien concept supercar. Stick with anyone of these you can't go wrong except with gas mileage. :thumbs2:

    Sounds cool! I'd like to see Soundwave or Megatron as a Cadillac. That'd be pretty cool.

    Akward thought: Pimpatron Vs. Redneck Prime... wow... :peoples:

    It's got to be someone classy and iconic. I have to go with Soundwave on this one (if it's true).

    Just my two cents...but I've thought for a long time that if there was any kind of car that existed right now that would make a good alternator/BT mold for Hot Rod, it would be the Cadillac XLR...and it even comes in maroon...agree or disagree...just my two cents. :D

    That's a fairly decent looking car, as long as it has an interesting transformation and a good looking bot mode I'm pretty much sold on the idea.

    for some reason, Runamuck (who seems to be having a renesaince via the comic and Cybertron) was my first thought, but i could see Soundwave or Megatron pulled off too. (Soundwave would make sense what with Rumble n' all, they could be a team.) with those lines, i could even see them doing a Seeker, even though i'm still hoping to hell that they are smart enough to NOT try and make a jet character a car.

    On the Autobots side, i could see this being Hot Shot (what he'd be called since Hot Rod is unavailable) - this car would have made a nice Wheeljack. There's not too many iconic 84-85 characters left that would be appropriate besides Camshaft and Downshift (who are pretty far from 'iconic' anyways), unless they pull out a 'non-character' like another Throttlebot or an 86 minicar or something. maybe Blurr?

    Edit: BTW - it's a nice looking car, and looks like it would lend itself to transforming fairly well.

    Having seen this, and the Jaguar, I'm fairly convinced that we'll be getting seekers as cars in the alt. line. Look at the designs and the colours, these cars fit as Starscream and Thundercracker. Whichever one comes in black can be repainted as Skywarp easily. Having said this, I hope I'm wrong, as I would really love to see alternator jets, damnit!
