Zooming In on the Kaiyodo Transformers Revoltech Hot Rodimus FigureMay 8, 2014
Fans with a penchant for Kaiyodos popular Transformers line have yet another detailed and highly poseable action figure to add to their collections. The Kaiyodo Transformers Revoltech Hot Rodimus figure is a miniature recreation of the flamboyant Autobot leader (aka Rodimus Prime and Hot Rod) that compensates for its inability to actually transform with a detailed and stylized appearance thats likely to resonate with Transformers aficionados.
Like Optimus Prime, Megatron, and Starscream, the articulation of the 4.5 Hot Rodimus figure has been put to the fore with impressive results. The generous inclusion of Kaiyodos proprietary Revolver joints in the torso, legs, and arms allow for a wide variety of poses reminiscent of the anime art style of the comics, cartoon series, and 1986s Transformers: The Movie. The display options are further extended by Hot Rodimus accessories, which include a pair of 1.5 hand cannons and two additional pairs of swappable sculpted hands that complement the default fists. The alternate hands snap into the forearm and allow the figure to point, give a thumbs-up, and wield the (included) guns.
Officially dubbed the Revoltech Yamaguchi Series No. 47, the Hot Rodimus figure is the handiwork of famed sculptor Katsuhisa Yamaguchi. Kaiyodos Revoltech team has successfully delivered another masterfully rendered and wildly poseable action figure thats bound to have strong nostalgic appeal among import collectors. Ardent devotees of the old-school Transformers will be hard-pressed to prevent this flashy Autobot from rolling out.
