    Pretty simple. Saw a good potential Hotrod mold that went unutilized for it.


    - Worked off a base FoC Sideswipe since the face and car body were perfect.
    - The hands are fully able to hold the Universe 2.0 metal matrix, but I did want to show it off holding the lightpiped matrix I made for Galvatron.
    - The new rifle is meant to be an FoC iteration of Rodimus Prime's rifle. Since it plugs in on top, I had to sand the peghole alittle since it was way too tight.
    - The arm cannons are actually Prime Bumblebee's, with an extra barrel added to each.
    - There's a tiny matrix painted on the abdomen. Not sure why Sideswipe had it, but it worked perfectly for HotRod.
    - Since this IS originally FoC Sideswipe, I don't transform it properly for vehicle mode. The proper vehicle mode puts too much stress on the shoulder joints and I really don't trust it.

    Was never a fan of that mold but you made it look good. Especially like the molded matrix, gives me some ideas....

    Awesome job mate. My only suggestion would be to use Cybertron Clocker exhaust pipes instead of the BB blasters on the arms. But that's just a matter of preference.

    Clocker pipes are a tad over used IMO.

    Wanted to maintain the FoC style, Clocker's exhaust pipes work better for a G1 body.

    Yup. I actually meant to include it in the OP as well.

    I love your innovative use of TFP Bumblebee's blasters to make the pipes.
