About this deal

The deco has been altered by changing the side striping from white to yellow, while the stripes over the hood, roof and trunk have been eliminated altogether, replaced by a Hot Rod-style flame graphic on the hood and front guards.

It featured no notable changes from the original Generation 1 release of the figure, but it did reinstate the rubber tires and metal feet that were phased out of the original toy's production run. and was available for purchase at the Cybertron Con 2010 Shanghai convention as well as various online toy retailers.

Unlike most modern instruction pamphlets, Hot Rod's instructions are printed in full color on the Hasbro version. After things had calmed down a bit, he formally introduced himself to Viviane, though she found understanding his accent very hard. While his color layouts are identical to the Chronicle toy, Hot Rodimus's red plastics have been absolutely covered in metallic dark red paint, and his gold and blue paints are also now a shiny metallic gloss.

Concept art for "Hot Rod" appeared in the "Transformers 3" section of Massive Black Volume 2, along with various other designs. Despite numerous aesthetic differences between the two molds, Hot Rod's package art reuses the art from the Core class toy above. In an odd intra-Hasbro design move, both of Hot Rod's original guns were reused for weapon toolings on the Cobra Stellar Stiletto in 1988.

It's best to be careful with the "RODIMUS" stickers on his knees, as they can and will peel off easily. This figure was only available in a two-pack with Bumblebee, also under the Autobots Unite subline imprint. Now, bear with us on this one; this means that he's got the outdated color scheme used by AKOM in all their episodes of the animated series, his shoulder vents being the same color as the rest of his arms, the dark and light areas of his helmet are inverted, the "windscreen" on his pelvis is white, and his boots are two shades of grey instead of one (because AKOM would literally translate the shadows on the character model into actual colors).
