Thanks to a thread on Baidu, a Google-like community, we have our first look at MP-28 Hot Rod’s packaging! It seems Hot Rod isn’t too fair off from release as more and more news has been popping up and fans over in Asia have been getting their hands on him. Hopefully the same goes for Shockwave, who was revealed at the same toy show as MP-28. Hot Rod’s packaging is your standard horizontal box with a shot of both his robot mode and alt mode on the front. In addition to the packaging shot, another user in the thread snapped a pic of Roddy’s underside in alt mode where you can see the usual arms, legs, and rather exposed head.
MP-28 Hot Rod 2.0 is priced at $74.99 USD and is slated for release during the first quarter of this year. He’s up for pre-order via our site sponsors, so check out the pics after the jump and if you haven’t already, be sure to place your pre-orders!
