SECONDED. it is barely even a repaint. not enough to double dip or replace the ss one. Crasher I am still very excited for, even if I would have liked a slightly different head sculpt. Stop teasing us hasbro and drop some more gobots. would be really easy to turn wrek-gar into cy-kill, all I am saying.

Anyone else notice that Crasher's box art is based on the Siege Mirage mold while the figure is based on the Earthrise version?

I may be in the minority here, I actually like this Hot Rod repaint more than the original, I like the shades of red and orange they've used a lot more, and I probably will swap out my Studio Series Hot Rod for this one. Shadowstrip and Crasher look nice as well, but I'm not interested enough in G2 or Go-Bots to buy either of them. I do wonder if they'll go the whole hog with G2 Stunticons though, that recently leaked "Robo WLD RDR" product listing makes me think they will (as much as it would be cool and everything, I really don't think that product listing is X-Brawn with his Japanese name Wildride like some have speculated). They could always stick G2 Motormaster in the Shattered Glass line if there's no room for a Commander in Veloctrion Speedia 500.

For me, one use of the SS86 Hot Rod mold is enough since I still find the TR mold more fun to play with overall. Shadowstrip is the one I'm most interested in, since I'm a sucker for G2.

Eh, but it being G2 doesn't explain the "Robo"

I have always enjoyed our Mirage with a hatch over the cockpit. Though the above image is not a fully closed hatch it's pretty damn close and I felt it was best for the Classics mold and the Siege mold.


And I'm third on this not so impressive Hot Rod...'nuff said! :VEHI:

The yellow hinge on the roof means I can easily skip Hot Rod. Crasher is a must-have, Shadowstrip is tempting but I'm not sure I want to go down the rabbit hole of G2 combiners.

Unfortunately that piece being yellow is a consequence of the plastic type: it's Polyamide, a sturdier type than regular ABS. PA is used in joints, and it can't be (economically) painted. Best one can do it sticker it.

And I'm happy there's a choice between cartoon and toy deco. >:oP

Also Siege would be a better fit, since Gobot Crasher was a closed canaopy racer.

Considering the voyager budget used for this toy, HasTak might actually end up doing that to get their money's worth out of this mold. Shattered Glass Roddy may even happen as well! :lol:

They might be waiting to see how well Shadowstrip sells before forging ahead with that. IIRC the CW G2 combiners underperformed in sales (hence us not getting G2 Defensor. Again. Maybe shoulda led with him, Hasbro, since as "thing we never got" he'd have been more in demand), so it would make sense for them to be more cautious this time.

Uh-huh, but the "Robo" doesn't look to be in the name in that case. With Shadowstrip it replaced part of the original name, which isn't the case here. Pattern-wise, this feels more in line with them using "Black Convoy" for RiD Scourge because the RotB line will be using the name "Scourge".

Image
Also unlike with Shadowstrip, "Robo" doesn't seem like it would have anything to do with Wildrider's G2 color scheme.
Another mark against it being G2 Wildrider (at least based on Shadowstrip) is that it seems to be in the main line.

kirbenvost wrote:The yellow hinge on the roof means I can easily skip Hot Rod.
Then you're gonna be skipping every use of the mold, bucko, because it's in unpaintable plastic for durability and on the same sprue as the spoiler (which is likewise). They weren't going to do a separate sprue for one hinge, it's super-uneconomical.

Well, a consequence of plastic type and mold layout. It shares a sprue with the spoiler (which is cast in the same so it can get away with being strutless!)

And it can be economically painted at home, if you're careful or up for disassembly. Acrylic should work on it (Hasbro's standard paint is enamel; more hard-wearing, but on softer and/or somewhat "waxier" plastics like Polyamide it will never cure past being tacky).

I'll probably get every version of the Hot Rod figure because it turned out very well even though I still don't think it should cost more than $28. Definitely not $34.

SS86 Hot Rod
Velocitron Hot Rod
Shattered Glass Hot Rod (maybe)

I would absolutely love a black version with the light blue chest like MP-09B. The deco that appeared in Lost Light.

F'eh - who cares about Hot Rod when there's still a dearth of Cosmos figures? Why is it that Cosmos is the only wave 1 figure in the Velocitron line which is NOT listed at all on the Walmart website? They weren't kidding about this figure being a walmart 'exclusive' - in fact it seems to be so exclusive that even Walmart doesn't have any!

Some one may or not have hid a cosmos behind a blurr, that someone will be disapointed becasue I picked it up. Despite me not wanting it, I figure it will go with my MPs despite needing arm fillers and the legends one can go be my 'toy' cosmos.Just sucks that the legends toy is way more fun at half the price of the velocitron one. Picking up SSbee Ratchet for £15 didnt really offset the price by that much either.

Good thing is hopefully Clampdown will get reduced down the line if it is a wave 2 repack like when I picked up netflix wheeljack for £7.

Sadly, the minions checked very thoroughly, and no Cosmos figures have been hidden behind any of the other Velocitron figures in any Walmarts near my realm. Would that it were so. They've found plenty of everything else, though...

It was available initially online, but they sold out exceedingly fast and were never restocked. Walmart chose the case packout and for whatever reason decided the one new figure in the pack should be one per case instead of logically making it two or even three per case. Even with solid cases available they chose not to offer them, not even online. Better yet, with the revision wave that includes Crasher and Shadowstrip, they didn't included Cosmos at all. I don't know if Hasbro simply didn't explain the details to Hasbro well enough or if someone at Walmart just didn't like the looks and story for the character. I'm thinking when Hasbro pitched him as the flag waver instead of a racer Walmart instantly decided he wouldn't be a popular character. The other one per case, Clampdown, also isn't a racer, he's a police officer pulling over racers in this entirely legal race, for speeding...

Honestly, as Cosmos was the only one I actually wanted and update to because the Legends figure was too spindly, it's going to seriously eff me off if I cannot get him..

And if that happens I may have to rethink even buying anything else, I'm tiring of the Hasbro shaft.

It’s still a bit annoying that Cosmos has been so difficult for people to get ahold of.
And I really understand the reasoning behind why he’s an exclusive.
I’ll even add in that he’s not one of the more popular Autobots; I believe that’s a legit factor.
Can you imagine if this release was a character who was as popular as Brawn?
But this is almost at the same level of NF Bee.
So sure, he’s been made, & better to get him as an exclusive than not at all.
Yet that isn’t going to lessen the frustration for those who really want him & can’t get him.

Got my Cosmos and he's a neat little guy. But it have one serious design flaw. WHY the hell where they thinking by giving him PIN joints at the shoulders? I have one arm that is barely acceptable and the other is floppy like a ragdoll.
It's infuriating. :-x

Far as I'm concerned after the Cosmos debacle they can choke on these along with the rest of this Sub line!

Then you're gonna be skipping every use of the mold, bucko, because it's in unpaintable plastic for durability and on the same sprue as the spoiler (which is likewise). They weren't going to do a separate sprue for one hinge, it's super-uneconomical.



Well, I already have the first release, my point is it's not worth getting this version if it doesn't fix my main issue with that version. I'm aware of why they couldn't paint it, but if they want me to purchase this mold again they're gonna have to find a solution. Long story short, the SS86 version is good enough for me.

Any YouTuber that's chuffed at beating CvC to review legally-procured TFs first in their video gets my seal of approval.

I might actually wind up getting Shadwowstrip in place of Dragstrip for Menasor, I just don't care for the color scheme on Dragstrip accurate as it may be.

Tets has completed translating both parts of the Velocitron manga. Like his other work, it's a... "so-so" translation, but it's adequate enough in this case.

"Ninja skills" #-o

Some translations are a little too literal and I could do without the terrible font, but overall not bad.

Messing around with Clampdown some, I like the color scheme on this guy.

And, here are Burnout and Clampdown with the other Diaclone figures I have gotten lately that are not in moving totes.
