Well worth the money
By ShutUpStarscream on January 05, 2018
Hot Rod and Starscream were my first two Masterpiece Transformers purchases. True, Hot Rod is a smaller toy, but it cost about half the price of Starscream, and it's really a cool figure. His color is a little bit muted with a hint of fuchsia, very much like it is in Transformers the Movie. It arrives in car mode (which is flawless, btw), and took a long time to transform, but I was scared of breaking something. There are complaints about his 'backpack' being too big in robot mode, but it didn't impact posing or balancing the figure, and I'm not going to display Hot Rod in profile, so it's never bugged me. He's a solid, cool, very pose-able toy, and I love him. Sorry about the pronoun shift, but I just realized that I'm quite smitten...

I've had him for a while and he doesn't disappoint! The visor gimmick is a bit tight but seeing as it's an optional look it doesn't bother me.
Hot Rod To The Rescue
By The Monk on January 20, 2017
Out of the Masterpiece figures that I have, Hot Rod has impressed me more and more. I agree with what everyone has said good and bad. Hot Rod is a terrific figure and a great homage to the 1986 movie. I'm hoping that Takara hurry up with the other Season 3 guys. I look forward to what this year will bring
Nearly perfect.
By Spawndex on August 24, 2016
This is amost exactly what i expect from a Masterpiece TF. Everything is exactly as it should be exept 1 detail.. in car mode the wheels don't all touch the ground. Because his legs are. It's not so large a problem that it can't be overlooked and how many people display their TF's in car mode? But the wheels should be the only thing touching the ground. Instad the front of his legs are at ground level and at least 1 wheel is off the ground as a result.

Couldn't ask for a better shipping box. Well protected and in great condition. Shipped very quick.
Awesome mp
By The Guardian on May 29, 2016
Probably one of the best mp figures ever. Good size and detail. Way better than the Rodimus one from a few years back. Only downside was it could use some stickers. But nothing reprolabels cant fix.
Very pleased.
By Plush Therapist on April 17, 2016
The tabs and pegs alone are a testament to some genius engineering. The figure is very intricate and exceptionally designed with remarkable articulation. I wish it had a matrix, but it's only fitting that he has to get it from Optimus Prime. The figure is just the right level of challenge to transform as well.
Hot Rod 2.0
By OCareyInfluence on April 16, 2016
Hot Rod 2.0 is a solid figure and better than I expected. I was worried about the backpack, especially after the issues with MP Tracks. While his back is a bit cumbersome it isn't as bad as i thought when I got him in hand.
Same with his smaller legs, they are a bit dis proportioned but not that bad once displayed.
In car form he doesn't have great clearance and he does scrape.
Those minor issues aside Hot Rod is a solid figure and worth picking up. I never got the Rodimus MP before but I do like the updated one He is fairly priced and fun to display.
Not my favorite but still a worthwhile addition.
Worth Getting
By patrick burns on March 31, 2016
Hot Rod is classic! good sturdy plastic, fun transformation with some cool changes. not hard to figure out at all; very well designed; 2 small things is the clearance in car mode because it tends to scrap the bottom and the legs are a lil dis proportion but not bad when you spread them just a bit in robot mode. still a great figure; please add him to your collection and relive 1986 transformers the movie!
Dead-on accurate!
By E-Dub on March 08, 2016
The figure is waaaaay better than earlier MPs in the line. They really looked at their mistakes from MP-09 and vastly improved the model. His size is not really an issue once you see him in robot mode. His joints are solid and the transformation will not make you nervous at any point. A LOT of fun! I'm so impressed, I'm thinking of getting Ratchet too (another fav of mine)
He's Got the Touch!
By Sky-Byte1885 on March 04, 2016
Hot Rod 2.0. I've been waiting for this day since MP-10 Optimus Prime. The best part is that Takara nailed it; complete home run.

First the pros. MP-28 is by far the best Hot Rod toy to date: his robot mode looks great, the car is freaking beautiful, and his plastic is solid. He doesn't come with tons of accessories, but the ones he has are solid. Both photon guns, his buzzsaw, and my personal favorite, the fishing pole! Love the nod to obscure transformers references with those last two. He even has a matrix chamber to hold MP-10's matrix, and he's not even Rodimus Prime!

The cons. First, his size. Before buying this guy, remember that this is Hot Rod, not Rodimus Prime. He's about the same size as your standard MP car, but that is to be expected. Second, while his plastic is very solid (here's looking at you, MP-09!), some of the panels on his chest are very thin; MP Bumblebee thin. Shouldn't be a problem as long as your careful, but it's still a thing. Last, he does have a backpack in robot mode, but it's nothing to write home about. Kind of like MP-27's hip flaps, they're really not that noticeable while staring at the rest of this beautiful toy.

Verdict: get him while you can. MP-28 is definitely worth the buy unless you just don't like the character. I personally can't get enough of this toy. Now if we can just get another Rodimus Prime!
