Yeah the Takara version is much more of a pinkish-purply red, basically very faithful to Hot Rod in the '86 movie. There are other differences too, like colour of headlights, paint detail on his collar and cuffs, the flame design on the hood, the darker grey face (IMO neither wins on the face -... read more

Especially since there is not a true Rodimus alt mode. I didnt mess with the 1/8 of an inch "leg extension" in the pics above, because it looks off to me, creating another line under the line of the skirt. I love how they sneak in "Hot Rod Mode" next to the pic of alt mode on ... read more

Well its obvious that the Hasbro one is supposed to be Hot Rod instead of Rodimus Prime. That being said, it would have been nicer if the Hasbro one was shorter than the Tomy one by a little bit.
