Well. Technically, he fits my collection criteria. I never got Firebolt, so a new mold to me. But it still doesn't feel different enough to not be a huge ripoff... :/

I hate the damn fishing rod. I never use it with Hot Rod and it's too damn long to fit in my usual tidy box of action figure accessories. Targetmasters are so mucb better. :)
I've realized I haven't displayed him with the fishing rod once now that you made that comment. :lol:

Pretty much sums up my feelings. For all their good lately, this kind of makes me feel disillusioned. And even with all the explanations, no ones said what the deal is with those stripes on the shins...

Yeah that's weijang's OS Arcee (with the removable backpack bits I've left on in this shot) and Firebolt's a chopped/glued/painted/reconfigured PCC Pinpoint. No way I could afford proper ones so had to make my own and I got Pinpoint in a cheap lot of random 2nd hand TF toys.

I did offer a thought that it could be the way his shins were often shaded in the cartoon. The front of them appearing much lighter than the other sides. I dunno.

Ah, disillusionment. Totes a word, Chrome didn't correct it. :lol:

I mean, I would've preferred a Black Hot Rod redeco, it's nice that Takara buyers get the Targetmaster that came out years ago finally. Still wondering what they did to the handle to get it to stay in place on car mode. That's gonna be neat.

Also! The stripes are there for good measure.

Very nice Carnivus, very nice indeed!! Gotta get those weapons where you can!!

Thanks. And replicating your figure's pose made me realise Hot Rod can bend forwards at the waist. I didn't notice that before. Knew he could turn at the waist (even that is a bonus when it's available on a figure though I can understand on some where transformation doesn't allow for it) but yeah didn't realise he had that extra articulation there too. Cheers. :D

So just so it's clear, this deco is accurate to how Hot Rod looked in The Rebirth, in which he was colored in Rodimus Prime's animation-erroneous deco that AKOM made frequent use of in Season 3. So hes accurate to an incorrect color scheme.

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

Mine do seem pretty tight overall. Dunno if that's cos it was a cheap 'KO' version that may have improved on any joint loosness? I dunno. It did include the Matrix to put in his chest which i been told the official release doesn't.
See now I feel I shouldn't even be posting in this topic cos I bought the very cheap (but very high quality) one from china whereas a lot of you folk probably spent lots of money on official product.

I'm not gonna judge (nor am I here to) Carn!! I did read that the KO improved things, even adding clearance in alt mode!! And a free Matrix is always nice. I should probably get a KO to take on adventures.

Hooray errors!! If they get the color right (by accident on a few) is it an error of an error that ends up being accurate?!

The engine block lifts up to provide another weapon port even on the non-Targetmaster version? I did not know this. I was using the guns on the roof... which to be honest I think I prefer anyways as it makes more sense (especially if he has passengers who'd like to actually see out of the windshield properly) and just looks better. But yeah I didn't know about that.

Thanks. Yeah, I definitely prefer them on the roof plus you use both then and not have one laying about. Still it's nice to have options. Not sure how many guns the new one has. Obviously the targetmaster and I can see one of the normal guns now in red, but if you still get both normal guns you can stick those on the roof with the TM in the engine block and Hot Rod can be reeeally well-armed in vehicle mode then.

Also that orange on the rear of the car under the spoilers seems odd. But worse is the much more obvious pieces through the windshield, now very light grey where they are the regular reddish colour on the regular MP

You know, I wouldn't be surprised if Takara were to name this figure "Hot Rod" instead of "Hot Rodimus" since he was called "Hot Rod" instead of "Hot Rodimus" n the Japanese dub of "The Rebirth".

New image of MP-40 Targetmaster Hot Rodimus & comparisons to MP-28 Hot Rod

Courtesy of fellow board member Cyberpath, we've got another new image for you of the upcoming Takaratomy Masterpiece MP-40 Targetmaster Hot Rodimus from Dengeki Hobby Web! As listed earlier today, this release differs from the previous MP-28 Hot Rod release in that it has both a new deco based on his look in The Rebirth and comes packed with his Targetmaster partner Firebolt. And to illustrate just how different that deco is, we've also got a couple comparison shots between MP-40 and MP-28 from the same board member! Check 'em out below and tell us what you think in the forums!

Well damn. i actually really like this Hot Rod allot. The Colors, while being the weird ass AKOM colors, are really pretty on that figure. I genuinely love the dark lavender stripes on the shins, along with the dark maroon, burgundy, and magenta. Legit on pre-order.
