Hot Rod Confirmed to Make His Debut in TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT with Concept Art
If you are a Transformers movie fan who's been waiting to see Hot Rod make his debut in Michael Bay's Transformers universe, the wait is over. The official Twitter account for the film has confirmed that Hot Rod, a.k.a. Rodimus Prime, will appear in Transformers: The Last Knight. They even offer us some concept art of what the character will look like in the film, and you can check that out below.
There are no details on how the character will fit into the story. The image below just came with the caption, "Hot Rod: This is no cartoon. #transformers." It also offers some specs on the character, saying that he's Bumblebee's brother in arms and offers some personality traits such as being brash, slightly arrogant, and a protector.
Hot Rod quickly became one of my favorite characters when he was introduced in the original animated Transformers: The Movie. He was kind of an idiot at first, but he sure did look cool! I'm curious to see how they handle him in this upcoming film.
Transformers: The Last Knight will be released in theaters on June 23rd, 2017. For more news on the movie, click here.
