As the Transformers: the Last Knight movie gets closer, we are getting more screen caps and promotions. One character that we have not seen much of yet (especially not in the trailers) is Hot Rod. However, an image just surfaced on Instagram with our best look at him yet (in a still image). He is next to Laura Haddock's character and it seems to be an images used for a summer movie guide in a magazine.

Enjoy!

Duuuuuude. That robot mode looks sick. I'm glad there's more orange than I think we've seen so far.

Not bad, I like, but he still looks like a robot who scanned a car then scanned a gaming laptop for the random colour scheme of neon orange and black.

Also, that bio just went over my head, the only interesting fact is Hopkins name being mentioned :/

I relate to this picture as I, too, am a woman who would run at TLK Hot Rod ready to bludgeon them with an axe.

Well a hug from BRAWN is hazardous, sure!! :lol: :lol:

Hot Rod knows how to hug kids. Here's Hot Rod from the year 2005, clearly hugging a child.

Yup he's just trying to calm her down after kidnapping her for Hopkins.

Huh... Hopkins kinda is a creepy character judging from the 30 minute imax preview.

You do know that she is holding a cricket bat, not an axe ...

Sadly, the only toy he has coming out so far is a non transforming die cast vehicle that I am not even allowed to show you due to licensing not being acquired yet :(

Edit: not in the article but related Hot Rod does have a face it's easier to see in motion and on screen this is coming from someone who saw the 30 minute imax preview that had him in it and his accent is fine not awful but it is supposed to be cheesy.

I actually really like how he looks. He looks like an orange and black version of Bumblebee I drew in high school actually, and it works!

You guys know that Hot rod is meant to replace bumblebee, right. After this movie, bumblebee is torn up and will be missing in the next few tf movies, hence his own solo movie. Hot rod was originally meant to be in place of bumblebee. So expect more of him in future transformers movies

Hoping bay sees sense and either gets the lines redone by judd nelson or hot rod picks up judd's voice towards the end. Here's hoping.

More images of Hot Rod from the upcoming movie have surfaced via instagram. In this picture we can see Hot Rod's faceplate up close and personal. This image is actually from a series of motion character posters for the upcoming movie. If you would like to see more images of Hot Rod please check out this article.



We also have for you, a larger image from Entertainment Weekly's article. So you can get a better look at this big guy supposedly trying to befriend Laura Haddock's character. We don't think it's working very well, sorry Roddy!



In the above mentioned article a passage explains more about Hot Rot and his relationships with other characters. It also tells us that his vehicular mode is a 1963 Citroën DS.

[quote]Alongside Mark Wahlberg’s salt-of-the-earth mechanic, Anthony Hopkins is joining the cast as Sir Edmund Burton, an astronomer who — with the help of Hot Rod — has tracked these long-forgotten connections to another scholar, Oxford professor of English literature Viviane Wembly (Laura Haddock, who played Star-Lord’s mother in Guardians of the Galaxy).

She has no idea she harbors a genetic secret that could destroy (or save) the world. “[The humans] are empowered in a way that is very different than we’ve experienced before and honestly, it’s not easy figuring out how to empower the six foot human versus the 35- or 45-foot robot,” says producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura.

In the image here, Wembly comes face to face with the longtime friend she didn’t even know she had — the Autobot covert agent Hot Rod. She’s freaked out — and not planning to go quietly.

Hot Rod has secretly been serving as her protector in the guise of her father’s 1963 Citroën DS.

“It’s a rickety old thing, but she can’t part with it because she adores it,” Haddock says of the vintage vehicle. “This car has actually been put there to watch her and feedback information to Anthony Hopkins’s character about what she’s up to and her life. So yeah, she gets kind of taken [by surprise] in a really funny, dramatic way by this Hot Rod.”

The revelation also reshapes how she viewed her dad. “She’s not had a very good relationship with her father, but this is one thing that her father has done that makes her realize that maybe he cared than she thought.”[/quote]
