    Pretty sure this is either a head upgrade for their Legends+ Rodimus or they're saying they're going to do a Hot Rod figure.

    I think there is still money on the table for a new MP Hot Rod.
    The Fanstoys one looks good but is a shit toy.
    The Takara one is an amazing toy but doesn't look that great.
    I'd still be interested in someone else's take that does both.

    Incorrect Past Statement - MP-28 is not an amazing figure, it has about the same level of articulation as Hoodlum, but it doesn't look as good.

    Revised Statement - MP-28 blows Hoodlum out of the water in terms of articulation, much like MP-44 blows TE-01 out of the water, but unlike MP-44 V TE-01, I prefer the look of Hoodlum over MP-28 by a wide margine, and would bet that mist people would agree with me. Although Hoodlum is outclassed in the first department, his superior sculpt edges out MP-28 by a bit. Hoodlum is bad by both Fans Toys standards, and modern articulation standards, while MP-28 falls a bit short in articulation, and falls off the sculpt cliff.

    @StrangePlanet - @TigerBlade - @Jtotheiso187
    All correct on the artculation front.

    I'm going to think this is a Legends design, as that face is too simple for a MP alike.

    I'd be down with that too. I really like that car, and my Legends collection is built around cars, not characters. So I am really itching for a nice Legends Hot Rod.

    This is Legends+, not MP. In all likelihood it's a new headsculpt for MFT's Hot Rod/Rodimus figure, but it's also possible they're doing a separate Hot Rod figure. This was posted in the MFT thread here: Mech Fans Toys upcoming figures

    I'm gonna guess you've not handled both. Takara is far superior to Hoodlum in the articulation department. It's not even close. Unless I missed Hoodlum's ab crunch and butterfly shoulder joints of course.

    Hoodlum does look better though.

    For a Masterpiece is a terrible sculpt but for a legends figure is great
