TRANSFORMERS WFC Kingdom Hot Rod (Core Class) Review

From the War for Cybertron Kingdom Transformers line, the new core class Hot Rod toy is small but a great representation of this Cavalier fellow. Captain Kyle examines this small Autobot in this quick review to see if his coolness factor exceeds his stature.

Hot Rod was first introduced in Transformers: The Movie (1986) and is a favorite for many, even if he is still blamed for the death of Optimus Prime. He became the polarizing Rodimus Prime at the end of the movie but reverted to his Hot Rod self when Optimus Prime returned. This version has a sword, which is a departure from his standard weapons or even the special energy bow shown in Transformers: Animated. But he’s a cool and posable figure and Captain Kyle gives you the details!
