For me they were just simple name changes, but still the "same" character. And I was ok with Hot Shot being Hot Rod until Roddimus showed up. Is Hot Shot = Hot Rod, and if so, who is Roddimus?
not every kid appeal character is Hot Rod/Rodimus. What about Side Burn? His super mode was a red sports car with flames, but he wasn't Hot Rod either. Likewise Hot Shot is Hot Shot.
In this continuity, the guy is an homage to Hot Rod, named Hot Shot
, and will grow up to become Rodimus.
BTW, it was Energon that had a Rodimus. Cybertron had the non-show character Excellion.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.
