    As far as I can determine, Hot Rod and Rodimus Prime are the same Cybertronian, but different "personas," though I don't know what that means exactly.

    How does Rodimus Prime rank among your favorite Cybertronians? What do you like best about him?

    Could more have been done with his character? Should more have been done? Seems like he has quite a history. Was anything done with his character that you didn't like or thought was a mistake?

    Do you think Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime could headline a solo comic successfully?

TBH, as a kid, I liked HR, but didn't care for Rodimus Prime too much. Optimus was my hero, and they killed him off and replaced him with this poser. As an adult now, though, I can see what they were trying to do, and like it more. What's cool about HR/RP are the cool-looking vehicles he turns into, the flame-thing on his chest, and probably his spoiler the most. And we get a Prime where you can see his mouth and facial expressions. While RP was an ok leader, he did whine some. If it was just one or two eps I'd understand, but they kinda overplayed it.

What's weird is that his toy was rereleased in 1987, along with Targetmaster HR.
