Yes, I always wondered if that was fallout from the Japanese naming
Just fix the holes on the forearms. That's obvious right?
Thank you! And Hell Yes! I need this.
Looks nice. Much better than the regular MP Hot Rod.
Shrinking the backpack and adjusting the curve of the chest really makes it look a lot better.
If OS, I'm hoping for MP Ironhide size.
But I hope they also improve the ankles and put some more weight in his legs. The weight balance on the official one is a bit off with too much in his torso and not enough to counter this in his feet/legs.
I don't think the backpack is compressed so much as moved forward. Seems as though they shifted everything and he now has much better proportions from the side. In the second pic in the top row, you can see the added white plastic where the new arm tabs would go. This change does make his upper body look huge, especially compared to his waist and legs now.
I wonder how this will affect alt mode/transformation.
the backpack is more compressed you can see the hinge for the new part
sort of hope they make him ironhide height ( which would mean that throws ft kup right out the window for me as would be too small lol )although it's most probably going to be bigger
Wow. Slimmer backpack and more refined chest? Nice!
I'm still don't sure that it can beat Fanstoys Hoodlum but hurray for options!
Pretty obvious that BlackApple removed the back wheels section from the backpack and now its inside the legs. Which its a really good move.
I PO the MP28 KO, but well, seems that im going to have 2 Hot Rodimus now
I wonder if this will have rubber tires.
Definitely interested in this if it's oversized. Love the improvements already.
Interesting. Might get this to stand next to my MP headmasters
I'm happy to see someone go after fixing this up a bit, and in really nice ways.
But I have no interest in oversized MPs. Ah well.
You probably need to say Hot Rod is not Rodimus Prime.
Japanese name: Hot Rodimus, NA name is Hot Rod.
Japanese name: Rodimus Convoy, NA name is Rodimus Prime.
ok i stand corrected
Nice comparison! That middle split in the chest makes all the difference and I bet when they aren't prototype parts his waist/torso will line up flawlessly instead of looking disjointed. I never noticed before but is that the rear wheel rotated inside the lower leg or am I seeing things? lol
I'm actually quite excited about this one! I'd even take it at a 1:1 size to the original too please. Maybe an upgrade kit if it isn't too hard to swap bits?
i thought i could see the same earlier , the better chest , slimmer backpack , lower legs not so slim , and changed engineering/transformation by the looks of it.... mp28 is looking a bit shite when compared
More I look at it, the more I like it. I still think Hoodlum does the bot mode better, but if this can retain the sleek alt mode of MP-28 it may be a tempting alternative.
But I want this either FT Kup size or MP-10 size (Hot Rod or Rodimus)
Ironhide height is too tall as he won't match any of the 3P Kup's we're likely to get, and it's too short to be Rodimus Prime. That height really only works for Buzzing, who I'm not a fan of.
Of course if he's Rodimus Prime height, he may not match well to FT Hoodlum, who would then end up being my Hot Rod as MP.
AARRGGHHH!! What a complicated mess. I just want someone to make me a matched set of pre- and post-Matrix Rod's.
Either base it on MP-09 and do small and large versions, base it on MP-28 and do improved both versions, or hopefully FT will do a Rodimus to go with Hoodlum.
Who would have thought that 2 of the 4 participants in the Hot Rod wars would be KOs/upscaled versions?
Likely I would guess.
Maybe going forward, TT could send their prototype to this company so they can fine tune it before release.
