Remember when Optimus died and you looked at your mom and were like - "he's still alive though right?"? And then this guy somehow became the hero? I always kind of resented that. This toy however is all kinds of nostalgic and worth every penny to put it up on your shelf or rip open the packaging (carefully) and check this guy out.

Finally answered my son's dream of owning a G1 Hot Rod figure. The transformation is, no surprise, a bit basic, but that's exactly what I expected. Being a G1 figure, he doesn't pose at all, so if you're looking for a dynamic cartoon accurate toy, you're looking in the wrong place. But if you're after the future leader of the G1 Autobots, this figure will be more than perfect for your collection. Highly recommend.
A Blast from the Past
I picked this up while it was on sale for a Friend's early Christmas gift and they loved it. It is such a nice call back to the days of our youth. Opening it up almost felt like a shame, but then we remembered "Oh yeah, this is brand new, not 30 plus years old." Hopefully it will be in their collection for years to come.
An exceptional reissue of a great G1 figure! If you grew up with the original, this guy womt dissapoint. However, $30 is just too much. 20 at most is what you want to spend. He is not that popular and is over stocked everywhere. Wait for him to go down! All in all, this is nostalgic and wonderful, i feel 10 again!
So glad Hasbro is bringing back G1 re-issues and to make things better these are in their original box art from the 80's, such a great package to behold. The toy it self is just as I remember it, rubber tires and all, even has diecast feet painted black, love the reflective foil stickers, an improvement over the original paperback ones that the original had. Good quality all around here. Overall a can't miss reissue, can't wait for more from this line!
Classic G1 Hot Rod that I never got as a kid. Nice to have to my collection that I most likely won't take out of the box. The only problem is that the it was placed inside the box the wrong way. The plastic window shows the weapon and the rear half of the car. It should've been flipped around to show the entire car instead.
Great figure and love the vintage packaging! Only complaint is it was packaged the wrong way in the factory with the weapons taking up most of the window rather than the car. Easily fixed by opening it up and putting it back correctly as shown in my photo. I never had this figure as a kid as I wasn't a fan of the movie so I'm glad to be able to pick it up now.
