    IMG_1977.JPG Saw a figure for sale: Transformers Armed Forces Hot Rodimus.
    Cool looking figure, but I've never heard of or seen this before.
    Can someone give me the scoop on this?
    I'd like to know more about it

    I think it's a KO/third party figure, at least Aliexpress has it listed as such.

    I am not sure! But there are others; Vortex, Optimus Primal, and Bonecrusher. They actually look pretty nice.

    Can you post a link to the Hot Rod listing? I can't seem to find it. The OP only posted the CGI model. These are only $14, I might be tempted to order a set.

    I'm not sure how those are KO's of Vortex, Primal or Bonecrusher. They look nothing like them.

    Definitely not a KO of any TF figure. Probably not a KO at all.
    They look cool.

    Now then, mods, please move to 3rd party section.

    Bonecrusher is to clunky for my liking, but Rodimus and especially Vortex and Primal are amazing!

    They're not knockoffs of existing toys, they're new designs. However, they're probably of questionable quality -- maybe around the level of M.A.R.S. Convertors, I'd guess. In that case, in terms of materials and fragility, they'd be knockoff-adjacent. Undoubtedly the products' real names aren't "Vortex," "Hot Rodimus," "Optimus Primal," and "Bonecrusher."

    Sorry to bump this, but these guys are actually part of a toyline called Martial Mecha Saga, and they've been available on SirToys for a long time.
