This is another do over in the Masterpiece line as MP-09 was a bit out of scale and a bit of a disappointment (I had actually taken Hot Rod off my shelf to maybe make room for a third party instead). But this is a second chance they ran with. Hot Rod definitely has movie colors instead of the more reddish from the toys, but he’s a great addition. The transformation is fun, his accessories work, and he just is a great improvement over the first Hot Rod.
