This maybe a factory second:
Really curious to see if Takara uses slightly different colors to bring it closer to the movie look, and if they'll add paint, like on the forearms. Maybe change the flame pattern slightly. And maybe silver on the pipes?
I had kind of written this figure off, but the video makes it look really fun. Now, I want it. Can't wait for the Takara announcement.
I'm glad I pre-ordered this. My son and I watched his video and now he wants one too.
First, that Headmaster needs some paint....I mean SERIOUSLY needs some paint. The lack of paint on these little guys is what is keeping me from getting excited about these new bots, and before it's mentioned, no, I won't paint them myself.
Second, and this is just an observation, not hatred for the gimmick, but had this been made without the Headmaster gimmick it would've been a damn good Hot Rod in any other line.
It would have to be a lot bigger (around Chug Sideswipe/Sunstreaker height) to be a decent Hot Rod at all imo.
I wonder what the guns look like pegged together and attached over the engine block.
Its better than I thought.
Just needs more paint detail.
Seconded. I have yet to see anyone do it, and it's obvious that they're supposed to do just that.
Between that and having to skip to the seven-minute mark to see the transformation, this review was disappointing.
I'm looking forward to this figure, so I appreciated the early look a lot. I like your style, too. Thanks!
New Hot Rod review. Thanks John
This is by far the figure I anticipated most from this wave with Triggerhappy a very close second. I love the vehicle mode!
got mine today from bbts and the hips are even worse than Skullcruncher - so loose if you lift a leg it immediately flops down (yes I know how to fix them). Aside from that and the all-grey unpainted headmaster, he's great.
I have a request, for anyone that can. Voyager Optimus Prime's head on Cerebros, Hot Rod's head on Voyager Optimus and Cerebros's head on Hot Rod. Thanks in advance.
I feel the same. I passed on the BBTS listing but Peaugh's review has swayed me.
After how well Legends Blurr turned out I want to see what they do with this mold.
the reported loose pins and joints on hotrod are disappointing, I assume that is something that is just not going to change over time, figure QC/tolerance issues gradually get worse with time as cost cutting? increases.
Should have mine on Monday, can't wait!
Can Hot Rod hold Fansproject Sidearm?
I have an odd request but come someone post a picture with Hot Rod's head on Voyager Optimus, Voyager Optimus' head on Cerebros , and Cerebros' head on Hot Rod?
