    You guys act like that a character in these movies can only have one alt per movie and never changed alt modes mid movie.

    okay the last time i was disapointed in a movie design was WAAAAYYYY BACK when we first seen movie 1 megatrons face.

    I am very badly sorly disapointed in this, the face needs to be relooked at HARD, also where the hell is hotrod/rodimus spoiler you know the thing that makes him more or less him in his designs it would not have been hard to place into the robot design, not at all and yes i feel angry about this.

    ill wait before i write this verson of him off forever, intill i see him in action, oh by the way i can see his toy being a remold of aoe BB

    To be fair this isn't exactly the first time we got a Hot Rod design that didn't resemble the G1 version. Armada Hot Shot was actually made to be Hot Rod in the Japanese version of the series which we know resembles nothing like the G1 character despite having the Hot Rod color scheme later on. so in that regard this is the second time this happened.

    Having a $2 million supercar vehicle is rather fitting but just missing the flames or do you only get those when you become a Prime? :D 

    With Hot Rod being considered Bee's brother-in-arms, this might mean that there's a possibility that Hot Rod might show up in the Bumblebee spin-off movie as a sort-off partner character just like The Falcon to Captain America.

    I would not be surprised if Hot rod were only those colors in the art, it wouldn't be the first time its happened. The colors might not be final

    I got a feeling this isnt legit. Why the sudden reveal? Why have we not seen the vehicle on set? What makes hotrod so special that he gets a fool robot cgi reveal? Im gonna take this with a grain of salt until further notice. In the meantime he looks cool, not digging the face, and its not surprise by now that the movie version of characters look nothing like the cartoon or comic counterparts, well anyways if its true im stoked.

    Judging by that engine block on the back of his kneck, they at least kept that part of his vehicle mode.

    Cool design, love the vehicle kibble!

    Head is kind of odd, but whatever. Colors seem a bit different for him though.

    The colors and overall style of it make me think Windcharger for some reason...IDK why.

    I get the feeling that from the looks of the design the designers seem to be taking account of what people didn't like how the designs form AOE didn't have much vehicle kibble and are adding more of it this time around. Would make the TLK toys have less shell forming going on.

    The head just really, really looks like bumblebee.

    It's not a terrible design, and the colors seem to match the name fairly well (Won't there be trademark trouble if the car is a hot rod and he's named Hot Rod? Descriptive naming and all that jazz), but I think it'd look more distinct if they made the doors yellow and folded them up at an angle so they resembled the old spoiler.
