    Hey Orodruin, just saw some other Hotrods that youre missing at TFormers.com

    http://tformers.com/ig.php?mode=view&album=6634&pic=DSC07433.JPG&dispsize=800&start=0
    I dont know why im putting so much thought into your collection, maybe im insane. Anyway as far as I can tell there are those two toys in the back of the picture, Classics Rodimus, Alternator hot rod, 3" titanium and 6" Titanium Rodimus Prime. Once you get these I will be able to sleep at night.

    Dude, that's a SWEET Classics Rodimus gallery.

    It's a good thing I don't know where in NJ Orodruin lives, cause I might be tempted to rob him otherwise. ;)

    :D  You managed to find one of the two figures I don't have now. In that pic you linked, the ones in the back are, on the left, a voice chip Rodimus statue, I think from a Japanese convention. The one on the right is a Sky Garry repaint from Brave, he doesn't count. :p  The other one I don't have is SHBM Rodimus, a big pvc statue type thing from another Japanese con. I've got the 6" titanium and KISS Rodimus on pre-order, so fret not, they'll join the ranks soon. And Classics is sitting on my desk right in front of me. So sleep easier. :lol 

    Actually I want to get the two attacktix too, I've just been to lazy to ebay the little shits. :lol 

    And Reni, I'm glad you don't know where I live now too, and I'm keeping it that way! :lol

    Ok somehow I didn't notice there were new replies to this!

    Going through the list now-
    Hard Heros Bust Hot Rod- Have it
    Takara Decoy Rodimus Convoy (In both Green and Red)
    Takara Decoy Rodimus Convoy V2 (Blue and Yellow) - never really paid attention to decoys, guess I need to now
    Devastator/Hot Rod/Arcee mini display (I think done by Kabaya, I would have to look at my box, 2003)- have that, but it's not on the shelf since Hot Rod is so tiny
    Pull String Talking Rodimus Convoy (Takara 1986)- really want that
    MC Axis Hot Rod Resin Kit- never heard of that one
    Kabaya 1986 Transformers 2010 Rodimus Convoy
    Kabaya 1988 Transformers SD Rodimus Convoy
    Kabaya 1988 Transformers Cybertron Leader Guns Rodimus Convoy's Gun- I have a KO Kabaya Rodimus, I think I might just count that as good enough for Kabayas.
    Superlink Gold Rodimus Convoy- that and the silver one will be coming to me soon :D 
    Cybertron Excellion (I dunno if it released in your area yet) - have it, and it's been customized
    Titanium Rodimus (large) (not out yet)- on pre-order
    Titanium Rodimus (small) (ditto)- out, and I have 2- one loose and one sealed for the shelf.

    If you wanna count:
    G1 Primus (Gold Rodimus Prime repaint)- maybe. it's likely to be too pricey
    Checkpoint (Rodimus repaint from Energon)- nah, different character. he doesn't count :p 
    Variations like metal toe / plastic toe Hot Rod's or rubber/plastic wheel Rodimus (G1)- I'm not that picky. Target Master and pre-TM are as big a fuss as I'm going to make over variants.
    Release/box variations

    Turns out there's some little SD Rodimus too that I'd never seen before, it was in the SD thread in toyark last week or so. Is that one of the ones you mentioned?

    Oh yeah, also not pictured (since the shelf is just rediculously overpacked at this point) I've added the official DVD Excillion to the collection. And I hope to do at least one custom Classics version, I'm thinking total sho-ac with the hot pink and everything.

    I wish I was as cool as Orodruin. :) 

    Well, I'm not THAT much a completionist. I love the character and I love the toys... but I don't feel a need to find everything Hot Rod.

    Though I DO want that Hot Rod deco of Armada Hot Shot... and a TM Hot Rod.

    So... where's your updated pictures with Classics Hot Rod? ;)

    :lol  Nah, but your sig is still pretty cool. :thumb 

    You can probably get those two figures pretty cheap; I'd suggest the TFC #13 for TM Hot Rod, the box is so pretty.

    I can't really take updated shots anymore, the shelf is full. I was planning to wait for the 6" anyway but I just don't know where I'm going to put any more. I've got a loose 3" I stashed on top of the JR, but I've got the sealed 3" and MIB DVD Excillion along with Classics that don't fit. Oh, and KISS Rodimus. Seriously need a bigger shelf.

    Nope, I have both versions. Not sure what the actual line name is for this one.

    Hmm. Well I think that we should take up a collection for you. This would help you
    A) find those last couple of Hotrods,
    B) get all of us off your back.
    We can call it "The Hotrod family reunion fund". :)

    :lol  Go for it, the SHBM and the pull-string ones are bound to be expensive when I track them down.

    Don't feel bad man, the number of figures doesn't define how big a fan you are. Hell, this collection is as much about me having something to collect as me liking Hot Rod.
