LG45 Targetmaster Hot Rodimus
Since Rodimus was freed from the burden of leadership, his daily adventures in this fresh new world constantly revitalised him. In one of his adventures he encountered his new partners and powered up into both a Headmaster and a Targetmaster. All his experiences are training him so one day in the future he will resume the mantle of leadership.

The small unnamed Headmaster figure has now been painted in Hot Rodimus colours rather than the flat uninspiring grey of the Titans Return figure, Firedrive.
To accommodate Firebolt in vehicle mode, Hot Rodimus chest has been retooled and in my opinion improved from Hasbros Titans Return figure. The Titans Return chest was cast in red plastic and the bottom of the chest folds backwards to reveal the robots abdomen. The Legends chest is cast in orange translucent plastic and is painted. The flame decals are left translucent which is an interesting choice, the bottom of the chest piece no longer folds making this more G1 accurate and the engine block rotates to hide it. The only problem with the new chest is that it wont easily peg into the body to secure it in robot mode and as it is made of translucent plastic making this brittle, you cant even force this to peg in without the chance of the tabs snapping off.
