    I'm a little confused on Runabout's accessories. Does he come with one blaster or two?

    Looks to me like Kobayashi designed that Hot Rod toy, based on those sketches? (if I've seen enough sketches to recognise the individual artists)

    I’m a little bummed that after years and years of inaccurate versions takara uses in their magazines and tweets fans still take it serious

    So thats the infamous guy behind the fake car hood/roof chests ? They need to put that guy on a team designing bot bots and keep fake kibble parts away from the main lines.

    Personally, I can do with fake kibble. It's the parts forming that gets me. I know they've always been a part of transformers but it feels like a step backwards to be honest.

    Sorry not sorry but after having to stare at the MP Hot Rod's wide chest for years, having his robo chest chest be a faux part was the best payoff especially when kibble is basically non existent on the SS86 version.

    When Generations figures get reserved space to show off concept sketches in a magazine you know they weren't kidding around with this figure. And it shows, Studio Series Hot Rod is amazing.

    i prefer fake part over exagerated proportions for the sake of keeping the real car parts and dont end up seeing as the media character , if the figure get better proportions i am ok with it , form me that is the answer for a mainline deluxe cheetor fake cheeta head on the torso if the figure look good i dont care if they use fake parts

    I just cant condone the fake chest when they have pulled it off the right way so many times before. I honestly dont get what they are shooting for. Im okay with it looking like "the cartoon" but I dont want it to look like "a cartoon" if you get the difference.


    How is MP Hot Rod's chest wide ? Im not following you. I got the KO and it looks fine. It accomplishes what it sets out to do....transform. I hate this cartoony look where they are trying to make the figures silhouettes chiseled like superman or popeye.

    At this rate, V2 Starscream will be the only fragging MP we get in 2020.

    Onishi was responsible for MP-28's altmode, guess if we get a V2 that will be his call.
