    It's certainly not the TR Deluxe mold for Rodimus's internal bot. So... We're going to end with two Deluxe Hot Rod(Imuses) after years without any? Cool. The figure looks good enough to have it.

    Starscream's looks passable to me. Sure, he's not a 3P Raptor - and he won't be as expensive to get.

    Skullgrin as Maximo suddenly makes a whole lot more sense, it's partly a homage to his G2 comics appearence!

    Okay, now I know I'm not buying Rodimus. I'll keep my Hot Rod, thank you kindly.

    Beachcomber, Dreadwind, and Darkwing are all musts. Starscream and Rodimus are maybes. Skullgrin/Liege Maximo and Jazz are passes (I already have RTS Jazz).

    It is, it's just not shown here for whatever reason. There are pics of the slides floating around that show the core Hot Rod bot and it looks ace. A lot more G1 than the TR figure.

    The little Prime Master inside Beachcomber looks like Cloudburst...?

    Rodimus is keen.

    Starscream's gotta have some kind of hidden gimmick. His transformation's too simple, and his arms have joints around the hands that must do something. The deluxes all ahve CW pegs so maybe he's got some kind of gimmick, too?

    you can see them up above, where the chest is flipped up near the top. looks like Hot Rod's arms make Rodimus Prime's sides. Interestingly, Hot Rod's chest appears to be on the back side of RP's. RP's chest is the car hood. HR's is much more sculpted and has his collar.

    There's certainly a Deluxe-sized bot inside the armor and certainly not the Titan Returns mold.


    And I'm dying to know what's the Starscream's gimmick because it's obvious that this figure got one.
