Hot Rod looks pretty great in vehicle mode. In robot mode he’s not bad, but needed more paint apps. I like his face sculpt. The blade they gave him is obviously meant to be reminiscent of his G1 blade from Transformers: The Movie.
Wheeljack needed more paint apps in vehicle mode, but what else is new. Wheeljack is not a One Step Changer. In fact, he doesn’t even transform correctly. You are supposed to lift and pull back his windshield to transform him. It doesn’t work. It gets stuck. You also have to open the sides of the car to let it transform. Then you have to Transform his feet. He’s not even close to transforming in one step. His robot mode isn’t bad, but what the hell is that head sculpt? He doesn’t have the fins on he side of his head and he has a mouth. It’s lousy.
Overall: Hot Rod is awesome. Wheeljack is blah.
