It would be a shame if it did not include the Hot Rod face, as you would have a Rodimus bot that turns into the Hot Rod alt mode.
Looks like the red color is close to the Takara version. I will buy him and make him my Rodimus and use my Takara one for Hot Rod. I think the red color is close enough to where this will match the Takara trailer.
If you take a look at the back of his box, it says "Rodimus converts to Rodimus Prime", so odds are looking good that he still has his alternate head gimmick otherwise that little quote wouldn't make much sense. The visor also seems likely, since why remove something so small when it's already there, especially if the alternate head will be there as well.
