Michael Bay reveals Hot Rod from Transformers: The Last Knight…

August 4th, 2016 by Marc Comments


Oh, come on! We’re trying really hard to be positive about the new Transformers movie… really, really trying.

Even though it has Optimus Prime possibly meeting Merlin and King Arthur. Yeah, despite that, we’re trying to be positive.

Then this!

Michael Bay shared on his Twitter feed the image of Hot Rod as he’ll appear in the new movie. Remember Hot Rod? Looked like this?

Well, he doesn’t look like that anymore. You can see what he looks like below.

On another note, the inclusion of Hot Rod could mean big things for the movies – remember in the Generation One story he became the new Prime after Optimus’ death. We had Galvatron, is it time for Rodimus?


Transformers: The Last Knight stars Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Isabela Moner, Jerrod Carmichael, Laura Haddock and Sir Anthony Hopkins.

It’s directed by Michael Bay. 

Transformers: The Last Knight arrives on June 23, 2017.



Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
