    Thanks everyone. :D 

    And it's just as much Prime's fault for not ducking or something. :p 

    Thanks. :)  Wish I could take the credit for making it (even though it's just a sticker job) but I didn't. I like how he helps break up the mass of red.

    Very cool collection! Hot Rod/Rodimus is one of my farvorite characters. I've wondered since this last BotCon about doing such a collection myself and just what all the different versions of this character that there were out there. Your collection is a great reference. Are you going to add figures like Checkpoint (repaint of E. Rodimus) and different versions of Hot Shot to your collection too? Nice customs too btw.

    Thanks! I thought about adding the other versions of Hot Rod related molds like Checkpoint and yellow Hot Shots, but I'm not going to. Yellow Hot Shots are more of a Bumblebee homage as far as I'm concerned, and Checkpoint is just totally not a Hot Rod kinda thing. I might get him eventually if I see him cheap, just to say I have all 4 version of the mold.

    Excellent collection! I am simply amazed to see how many Hot Rods are there. Do I see LoC Excellion?

    Thanks. :)  The black shelf might be a while, half the guys are in storage. Maybe next weekend if I feel motivated though. I'll let you know when I do. :thumbs2:

    It's that time again- new pics! New pieces now include the Hard Hero Bust (which unfortunately blocks the view of the boxart of the reissue), Cyb Excillion, JR Rodimus Prime, and some random Japanese Rodimus. I think the SHBM figure and the talking statue are the only ones left now, at least till Classics and Attacktix come out.

    I'll be getting it, don't you worry. :D  Of course at that point I'll need to get a bigger shelf. Hell, I already do for that matter. I've thought about splitting into Hot Rods on one and Rodimus Primes on the other, but I'd rather keep them all together.

    Yeah keep them together. I am attempting to complete my own collection. You should hold onto that prototype as it is the thing that can really make your hot rod collection unique to others! NOICE!!!!

    Awesome collection, Orodruin! Man, I think I should make myself a themed-collection. I'll start a Swerve collection. I already own Alternators Swerve and Cybertron Swerve. Just need G1 and Universe and I'll be complete!

    Thanks guys. :)  A Swerve collection, huh? Interesting idea... for me to poop on! :lol  Sorry, been watching Triumph. If you've got the alt then you're pretty set there.

    I need to get the attacktix figures now. Excellion and Rodimus, yes.
