I know what it's based on. The title just makes its lack of Hot Rod more ironic than it probably intended.Kurona wrote:Sabrblade wrote:My point was that, for a set called "Autobot Heroes" that celebrates the movie, the movie's main Autobot hero is omitted from this set and relegated to other ones instead.Autobot Roadburn wrote:Emerje wrote:Sabrblade wrote:It's kinda funny how the actual protagonist main Autobot hero of the movie is omitted from the movie-honoring "Autobot Heroes" set.
Not really. I mean yeah, it's strange as a box set, but seeing as how we've already had Platinum box sets this year featuring both Hot Rod and Rodimus Prime I can understand why they would be left out of this set.
Plus they literally just released a new version of him. To be fair they did the same with Blurr and he's in this set, but we do get Hot Rod's old mold in the Planet of Junk set with the Junkions anyway.
And now that I think about it further, one of those other sets he's in is based on a fight scene from the movie that he wasn't in until after said scene's fight was over.
True, but this is based on the movie's poster. Better to call it 'Autobot Heroes' than... 'Autobots That Were On That Cool Poster You Liked'
