Mine does have a bit of an issue with the left foot, the bit of yellow plastic on the inside is misaligned so the foot doesn't want to fold out and click into place, but it doesn't seem to effect his standing. Also, TFWiki calls the formerly chromed parts "flat white", but they're more of a slightly metallic light gray.

I really love this figure, it looks great! I'm really impressed by how perfectly they matched the orange and magenta paint and plastic. I've always been the type of person who intentionally left off the majority of stickers on my reissues to make them look more like the cartoon models so this line is ideal for me.

Emerje


Do both the lower legs lock in for robot mode?

Yep. At first I thought they weren't locking, but realized I just had to pull a little harder and they clicked into place nicely.

Emerje


One of them doesn't lock for me, maybe I should pull harder (giggidy).

G1 Hot Rod Reissue with Cartoon Deco Found in the US

Postby william-james88 » Fri Mar 31, 2023 11:13 pm

Motto: "'till All Are One"
While Starscream was found a little while ago, the Walmart exclusive retro G1 reissue of Hot Rod in cartoon colours has just finally been found now. We got a few reports from fans of this toy being found on shelves in the state of Florida. This is good news since some preorders were cancelled by Walmart, and with the toy being sold out online, the only way of getting it would be finding it in stores.

For those curious, we have a review below showing the big differences in deco when comparing to the previous G1 reissue. This toy comes with no stickers and every detail is painted instead.

If you have found him, share your sightings with our community in the sightings section and on our boards in your region related thread.

Me too, I adore this line because it give a chance in handling GOOD QUALITY "G1" toys are a very good price. Plus they are different enough to double-dip if one own the originals. Also, the paint may remove some sticker details, but it add details where there wasn't before like the seekers face.

While not yet listed (due to an ordering mix-up apparently), Hot Rod will be joining Starscream, Thundercracker and Hound for order through the Big W Australia website some time soon.

Are they being sold in the same spot? They aren't the same size boxes. Starscream's is tall and wide while Hot Rod's is slightly deeper.

They are different SKUs so it shouldn't make a difference.

Exactly this. It's what I always imagined my figures were like. I still haven't seen this Hot Rod and missed it online, but I will be looking, as always. The only figures I still have from childhood is; Hot Rod, Gnaw and Punch/Counterpunch(also the Empire Strikes Back Millennium Falcon and a half-dozen G.I. Joes). I sold almost all of mine in an idiotic, drug-fueled 2002 before I joined the army :HEADHURTS: lol

I'm just going by what I see on the shelves. My Wal-Mart is jampacked with G1 Starscreams, Studio series voyagers and the new Earthspark stuff. There's literally no empty spaces, but it's all stuff I don't want. (Yes, I know others might want them.) I guess they'll have to take some of that out to make room for Hot Rod, though the last time I was there I didn't see a tag for him anywhere either.

So that means there's no space to put any of the upcoming new toys for the film series either. You'll let us know what happens if those get stocked.

You always say your walmart's got nothing and here I see a nice new toy :) And one I havent seen at my retailers yet.
By the way, est-ce que ton élécticité est revenu? For those not in the know, there was a big ice storm that cut off power to people in my area (and Kanrabat's), which is why I havent posted much lately.

Video Review for Retro G1 Hound Reissue in Cartoon Colors

Postby william-james88 » Thu Apr 13, 2023 5:14 pm

Motto: "'till All Are One"
Retro Hound and Thunderdracker have been found for a little while in Canadian Walmarts and Americans are getting notices that their Hound is ready to ship out soon. For those unsure whether to buy this toy or not or what to look out for (since there may be breakage issues), we have a video review for you below. And this is the first reissue of Hound in the west, so many fans are maybe unfamiliar with this mold. The review shows some size comparisons and reassures that there is indeed die cast in the toy.

Enjoy!
