    Why do I have a sneaking suspicion that Hot Rod is gonna get Stingered
    (Made in literally every other type of toy except deluxe)

    Also, is it just me, or does he look like dotm Roadbuster?

    That's all they have for Hot Rod?

    This is another reason to me that there is no wave 4.

    Surprise! He doesn't look exactly like the Centennario, but again he doesn't look half bad. Just a 10-4, Hot Rod was actually first reported by SoundBlaster7 here:
    TLK Walmart end cap featuring Hot Rod



    Bro, I know you're trying to sink your expectations super low so you will be surprised, but it's seriously getting old and getting to be a drag. I get that you want figures like Onslaught, I really do. But that attitude certainly aint helping lol

    It looks like it is part of some sort of "Unite" subline (there's a little logo on the package).

    Yeah, I noticed the little "Unite" logo on it too.

    and then that Target exclusive Optimus has some G1 style "reveal" gimmick on the top left corner of his box.

    is every store getting their own exclusives this time?

    Unite for Wallmart (whatever the gimmick is there)
    Reveal for Target (G1 style use clear red plastic to uncover hidden messages)
    Mission to Cybertron for Toys R Us with it's glyph decoders.

    Lazerwave, I've been seeing a lot of your posts in regards to Hot Rod and a certain Decepticon whose name starts with O.
    how about instead of spiralling into despair at the sight of legion Hot Rod, you try looking at it as a good thing? there's no denying now that Hot Rod has at least A toy coming. why can't there be more. and if Toys R Us, Wallmart AND Target all have exclusives on top of the 3 waves of mainline movie stuff. that's plenty of potential spots for a Hot Rod and a big O. the movie isn't even out yet and new stuff is being discovered all the time. don't give up yet. it's not over till Strika sings.

    Edit: Transformers Movie Toys Revealed - Cybertron (Planet), Leader Dragonstorm, Voyager Nitro and More! - Transformers News - TFW2005 oh would you look at that, a bunch more Hot Rod Toys. the movie line isn't over yet. there's still potential for a Deluxe Hot Rod.
    Edit 2: Even More New TLK Toy Reveals - Hot Rod, Cogman and More! - Transformers News - TFW2005 AND ON THE ZILLIONTH DAY, THE HEAVENS OPENED. AND PRIMUS BLESSED US WITH A DELUXE HOT ROD!

    I like it. :)  I expected a sucky 1-step, too. But this is better. It's not AMAZING. :rolleyes2  But it's pretty neat, I guess. Why not just throw this guy in with a purchase, Hasbro? Why not do an Asian promo where you spend $30-50 and you get this little guy??? :) 

    Cause a tiny Walmart exclusive seems... kind of silly. :lol
