Well folks, we have another leak found by the Allspark (supplied by an anonymous source) of the already hinted at Titans Return HotRod! What's surfaced from the darkest depths of the interwebs this time is the Cavaliers design specs and character artwork, but unfortunately no name is attached to his Titan Master pal. See the pics below, and thanks to Seibertronians Autobot N & Powered Convoy for giving us the heads up!

:lol:
In all seriousness, his design contains aspects that are very Cyclonus-esque. The shape of the chest, the design of the stomach, the tall vented knees, the tall shoulders, the spoiler wings, the... well, have a look at this:

Looks good. Nothing IDW about it like the original rumors reported but I like it.

Alt mode looks very, very similar to animated Rodimus.

His car mode made me instantly think of Animated Roddy:

This pleases me. It's about time to replace Classics Hot Rod.

Huh, that looks pretty good. Kinda hollow but good.

That said I'll probably just get Cybertron Excellion as my Hot Rod. Mainly because I've heard nothing but good things about that mold and I have a huge fixation on Cybertron toys. :lol:

Not bad. I'm not sure I like it more than Classics Hot Rod, but I can never have too much Hot Rod. (I guess I'm one of the few who like Classics Hot Rod just fine.)

But, uh ... MAYBE making a new voyager Rodimus should be more of a thing, Hasbro? The only real official option is the Titanium.

The TITANIUM!!!

I'm thinking TR Hot Rod looks pretty nice and I could use one in my collection.

I may have missed it, but what size class are we looking at? I'm guessing deluxe based off the size of his head.

Sabr, I totally see Cyclonus in that mold.

I have mixed feelings about getting updates to characters who have already been done extremely well.

I've still got a lot of love for the Classics Rod, but I'll never say no to a new one :x

Who wants an RtS Roddy? Because I'd buy a hundred of this fella than another Classics Rodimus, and that's a shameful fact.

The near-Cyclonus-esque features that have been pointed out already frighten me... if he does happen, I hope he looks worse than the Universe (2008) stepson; at the pace Titans Return is going churning out better versions of characters I already have, I might as well sell all of my ClassicsUniverse (2008)Generations fellas!

But that was almost 10 years ago, gotta freshen them up at least once a decade, so that all the new collectors can get that character without much fuss, and also to keep the name trademarked. But, by that logic, we shouldn't have gotten an O/P after Classics was released - or the rotf one

It's deluxe, according to the leak before this - Hot Rod, Getaway, Doublecross and Triggerhappy are the 2017 Spring Deluxe assortment.

It is indeed Deluxe Class, as confirmed by an earlier leak which included Doublecross/Twinferno, Getaway/Breakaway and Triggerhappy.

That's misreading my logic, especially when you apply a perennially redone, flagship character like Optimus as the standard.

Besides, I'm not saying it's a bad thing, I'm just saying I don't know how I feel about it. I don't want my Cyclonus (which is still very easily attainable, btw) to feel outdated. Though that was bound to happen anyway, since the Platinum version has 2 fistholes!

And I would beg to differ that Classics Rodimus was done "extremely well". It's one of the most dated of the "Classics"/Generations toys, in my opinion, and wasn't that great of a Rodimus toy. It was good, and for its time way back 10 years ago it was pretty awesome (especially as part of a new Neo-G1 movement), but the toy should have been put to bed along time ago. Looking forward to a new version of Rodimus after all this time!

Should have been clearer: I meant Cyclonus.

Hot Rod DEFINITELY needed something new.

I'm with you guys. I very much love my Classics Hot Rod.

I had actually hoped that maybe this would be a voyager Rodimus Prime to replace my Titanium...

Excellion IS a nice Hot Rod. I had him with my Rodimi shelf but haven't displayed him after I re-arranged.

Also, between CW and TR I'm pretty sure every Transformer I want has been/is being made. Well played Has/Tak.
