The shin stripes, however, are a case of Takara treating the lighting/shading on Hot Rod's shins as literally as possible.

Just rewatched rebirth and Hot Rod has his legs like that in every scene they're visible in no matter what the lighting. So it really isn't a matter of Takara Tomy getting it wrong, but AKOM misinterpreting the lack of shading as a purple stripe on a black leg and consistently coloring him that way. If you look at the rest of the characters the shading changes from place to place like it should, even on the rest of Hot Rod, but those legs are constant. Can't really blame Takara Tomy for this. If anything this figure is exceptionally screen accurate, purple stripe and all. I guess Someone at Takara Tomy knows how to do purple right.

I don't know whether to call AKOM doing it that way in the first place, and Takara just following in suit, either better or worse. 8-}

The car mode looks a lot better than I originally thought - maybe even moreso than MP-28 - but that robot mode is still absolutely dire. One of the worst decos I've seen a while.

How can you say that? He is owning that deco! Artfire had the best deco of the MP-30's, and this Hot Rod is right there with him. It is gorgeous and loud and I am in love with it

Artfire looked incredible, and I was hoping MP-40 would follow in his footsteps instead of being based on an animation error and having dumb red strips down his legs. All the power to you if you like it, but this just looks awful to me.

Booooooooooooo

Artfire is incredible, and while I was hoping for a new targetmaster mold, it looks great to me, and it works. Sorry it can't really hit home for you too

Not without any alterations to either Firebolt or Hot Rodimus. Which is just as well, as they never did that in the US cartoon, and Hot Rodimus never became a Targetmaster in Japan.

I was comparing them because I have no real attachment to Artfire as a character, but his deco was super sweet and made the figure look much better than his original 2 versions. To me, the same applies here: This deco on Hot Rod makes him so much better to me, hence why I want him so badly. It may be an animation error deco, but it is a deco that is better to me than the original version, and thus is enough to make me buy it

I even expect this figure's bio to reflect the events of "The Rebirth", even if it's just an alternate timeline in Japan.

More Images of Takara Tomy Masterpiece MP-40 Targetmaster Hot Rodimus from Tokyo Comic Con

Postby Qwan » Mon Dec 04, 2017 2:18 am

Motto: "There's no such thing as a no-lose situation, but if you try your hardest, you'll lose the least."
Weapon: Hand-Mounted Lasers
From his appearance at Tokyo Comic Con (which took place from December 1st to 3rd) and via Twitter users @7777_diver and @MASABON2011, we have a couple more images to share of Takara Tomy's upcoming Masterpiece MP-40 Targetmaster Hot Rodimus! The figure, shown off next to other Masterpiece figures including the recently-released and upcoming MP-12+ Sideswipe and MP-39 Sunstreaker respectively, sports the same deco seen in previously-released images.

The first photo appears to depict his colors as skewing closer to the last release of the mold rather than the darker maroon that MP-40 has been previously shown to be, but it's almost certainly just the lighting or contrast in that one image, as the second photo seems to show the more commonly advertised colors from this release. If you were wondering how MP-40's deco is expected to stack up against the previous version, MP-28, check out the comparison images from August this year!

Check out the images of the figure below, and take in all its glory in two surprisingly different sets of lighting! Seeing these images, do you have any more thoughts on how MP-40 stacks up against MP-28, or just how it stands as a toy on its own? Let us know in the Energon Pub!

Yes. He’s based completely off the AKOM animation from Rebirth...something that was never released in Japan. Even down to the windshield crotch.

It's worth mentioning that the Japanese dub of The Rebirth uses the US names for most characters, not the pre-established Japanese ones. In this case, Hot Rodimus was simply called Hot Rod (ホットロッド Hotto Roddo), something not reflected in the MP if I may add.

Box Image of Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-40 Targetmaster Hot Rodimus

Postby Va'al » Tue Feb 13, 2018 4:15 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
We have, after a long stint of radio silence, a new image of the latest offering from the Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece line: the Targetmaster version of Hot Rodimus, relabelled as MP-40! The image, mirrored below from the Singaporean fan group on Facebook Planet Iacon, only really shows the box for the figure, with the Long Life Design Award label and very minor shots of the Targetmaster itself, only in weapon mode on the stock photography. You can take a closer look in one of our previous articles covering the set, here, and join the conversation in the Energon Pub!
