    It’s cool how his “weapon” integrates into alt mode but dang it looks weak without painting the flames like in the art.

    Am I correct that this is an approximately $50 figure that does not have separate legs?

    Ultimate Class figures are $29.99, but yeah, you're right about the legs.

    How does he plan on using that bafflingly stupid weapon without idk, legs? Wrists might be nice as well. I imagine your head being as flexible as Michael Keaton in a bat costume wouldn't make combat with such a weapon a walk In the park either.

    He's just as flexible and articulated as half of G1. How many of them had fully functioning legs? Just use your imagination.

    I'm cool with this. This Hot Rod's a fantastic addition to the Cyberverse lineup.

    I like that he comes with a pizza peel. More transformers should come with restaurant equipment.

    POTP Leader Rodimus looking like a Masterpiece by comparison now, eh? :p 

    In all seriousness why they gotta do Hot Rod dirty like that?!

    This is really neat! The weapon is new and interesting, the storage is great, and the armour doesn’t affect the alt mode too badly (looking at you, Shockwave).

    While I normally don’t buy cyberverse some of these lately aren’t half bad.
    Gonna wait for a review but this could be a fun pick up

    He seems to have pretty alright ball jointed arms though.

    Might need to ponder how to make these legs less stiff though.

    How many Hot Rods has that been now for Cyberverse? It amazes me how many options kids of today have for only one character. But at the same time, who would want to buy this for more than ten dollars.

    Y'all, I am a generally positive fan who tries to let everyone enjoy their own slice of fandom, young and old, all lines and eras.

    That is the dumbest accessory I've ever seen.

    That's my thought as well. Nothing irks me more than Hasbro molding in places for tampo detailing and then leaving it off. Just...why?
