    Nope. Never actually was magenta except in the newer (as in last 15 years) DVD versions of TFTM and all DVD Blu-ray releases since they first did that. I saw the movie when it first came out as a kid and he was very red on the big screen and on VHS a few months later when that came out, and the toys of Both G1 Rodimus and Hot Rod were red too. Even MP Rodimus is red. Any newer figures of Rodimus that have a hint of pink to them is probably because of the way the DVD versions of TFTM presented the character to the last couple of generations of fans. Its something I really wish they had fixed on the new 30th Anniversary blue ray version.

    Nautica's face not repaired huh. So a) she wanted to keep it that way (upset about Skids?) b) haven't had time to repair it yet or c) don't have materials to repair (seems unlikely).

    Hot Rod/Rodimus has been coloured magenta in the Marvel UK stories, marvel US stories and Generation 2 comics. He has never been this colour in the cartoons however. I think his original movie designs had that colour mentioned (which would have been used for the comics) but was changed.
    You can see that his colour will change in the comics to match his tv colouring more clearly here: Hot Rod/Marvel Comics continuity - Transformers Wiki

    A couple of (awesome) things:
    1.) Cyclonus is in the exact same spot as on the original. Ha!
    2.) Megatron is taking Galvatron's spot (Whirl is taking Scourge's, which is great, considering his old "Sweep Collection")
    3.) Hot Rod and Ultra Magnus have swapped spots, with Rodimus taking center stage and Magnus driving off to the right.
    4.) Nautica has Arcee's old spot.
    5.) Drift (who usually uses a sword) has taken Springer's (who usually uses a sword).
    6.) Rachet has taken Kup's place as cantankerous old coot.
    7.) Swerve is in Wheelie's spot as "Small comic relief character".

    The only one that actually seems odd is Rewind taking Blurr's spot. I mean, they're both famous for saying a lot out loud, but that's more of Rewind's old G1 persona than the MTMTE rendition...

    Also, bizarrely, Brainstorm has taken the place of the Autobot Shuttle.

    I\'d like it more if Rodimus was in his normal colours.

    Oh okay, well I never read many of the old marvel comics but they did a lot of character colors different from the toys, show, and movies, so I generally don't go by that when thinking of a characters basic color scheme.

    Most people wouldn't go by the comic colours either. The majority would go by the toy or tv colours due to the available of both in their market areas (the comics are very US/UK market based).
    But I do think myself that MTMTE colouring for him is too purple...

    Pretty sure Hot Rod was always a bit pinker even in the original theatrical film, it's not something that they changed just for the DVD. Rodimus Prime was a darker red in Season 3, though, which is what MP-9's colors are based on.

    I read something about it years ago saying why later DVD releases came out looking a different color than what was originally intended. Hot Rod was the main example used. It was like 15 years ago so I don't even remember what the source was, but it was a trustworthy one and not just some fan online speculating. Hot Rod was a brighter hot red (I guess you could say pinker but that's a stretch) than guys like Ironhide and Optimus but I can tell you for a fact in theaters back in 87 he wasn't pink or purple at all, plus they designed those cartoons after the toys, and both Hot Rod and Rodimus were red toys.
    On the latest TFTM releases Hot Rod looks outright pinkish-purple.
    But yeah obviously his color was always a bit different from other red characters or they'd be pink-purple too now.

    Their characters never properly interacted but if that happens, I guess that'd be fine as long as they build it up.

    though poor Nightbeat....I kind of thought they had good chemistry. :p
