Toy News: "Platinum Edition" Hot Rod versus Junkions revealed?
Photos have surfaced online via Baidu.com showing what appears to be a "Platinum Edition" boxed set featuring redecos of "Reveal the Shield" Wreck-Gar, "Generations" Junkheap and "Classics" Rodimus (aka Hot Rod)! This was rumored some back but this is the first possible confirmation that this boxed set will be a reality. Given that 2016 is the 30th Anniversary of "Transformers: The Movie" releasing a set like this makes perfect sense.
Also note: this is the first time in recent years that Hot Rod is being called "Hot Rod" and not "Rodimus". Even his recent "Combiner Wars" incarnation was named "Rodimus".
Plans change however and there has been no official announcement about this product yet, so stay tuned for more information as it becomes available!
