    Im taking a bit of inspiration from thatsjustkreo, and am wanting to see what one everyone uses.

    Me personally, I use the PotP Hot Rod for my display. 20180823_182611.jpg

    To be honest, as soon as I got POTP Rodimus I put TR Hot Rod into storage. I really ought to get those Thunderhawk labels for the old guy so I can get use out of him again.

    For about a decade it was considered to be the CHUG Hot Rod, if you wanted rodimus you'd get the upgrade kit. I suppose he chose on what was familiar.

    Except painted hubcaps, no partsforming, no orangutan arms, and no face deco that looks like a herpes infection.

    Honestly I use potp hot rod as my rodimus prime. He's taller than I feel hot rod should be and looks the part. I just pop the trailer on like the g1 toy and I'm good.

    For hot rod himself I use titans return. It's the best one to date.

    I used cybertron excellion for the longest time though

    And also some of the worst arm articulation for a toy from 2006. I like that mold, but it is outdated.

    My default will be PotP when I get it (have the wave with Rodimus and Primal on pre-order), but I'm also gonna keep the Legends version around, though I think he definitely wears the headmaster gimmick way more poorly than Kup and Blurr.

    TR Hot Rod to match his TM teammates. Thought PotP Rodimus would make him obsolete, but didn't really like how the latter turned out.

    In my head canon, Classics Rodimus is a young, pre-matrix Hot Rod. POTP Rodimus (no armor) is the matrix boosted Rodimus Prime and TR Hot Rod is for after he gives the Matrix back to Optimus but nonetheless retains some power and maturity (hence being taller than Classics Rod). :)

    Classics will be the only Hot Rod I have. TR Hot Rod with TR Rodimus is my new Rodimus Prime. I just need to make a trailer for him.

    I use TR Hot Rod, and at some point, i'm getting that shapeways head for the IDW look. i also have the CW hot rod, but i view that as a small bot that just shares the name.

    Rodimus is an odd one. He's the only one other than megs i have multiples of.

    Classics for me is my main. I much prefer it over tr. Sure, tr may be a little more poseable, but it's alt mode looks like a McDonald's toy. The legends is better, but i only got that cos it was on sale and i wanted the targetmaster. Classics has a better look, better face, better paint apps, better looking alt mode and no gappy chest. Also a flip out wrist saw. So classics is my main classics hot rod.

    For rodimus, i use the titanium. I would prefer him to be voyager sized, but i like his look and the fact his trailer is integrated. Leader class is too big for me.
