Via a scan from the latest Japanese hobby magazines, we have a silhouette teasing a new Masterpiece release from Takara-Tomy! This one is clearly Rodimus from the silhouette, and to be frank, it looks like a new mold as opposed to a reissue of the MP-9 Rodimus Convoy.
We’ve not got a lot of other details to go on, however a rough translation of the text suggests Hot Rodimus here is coming after Ironhide, and speculation is he’ll be in scale with the other Masterpiece Autobot cars. We’d imagine this one must be a special release coming in 2016 to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the original Transformers movie, which was where Hot Rod made his debut. Exciting times are ahead! Check out the scan attached to this post.
