Shared by Notomus on our Discord: a screengrab from a PrimevsPrime review with our first look at Override.
Looks shorter and stubbier, and could use a bit more paint.
But now I too am beginning to doubt that it's a retool of SS86 Hot Rod and not just a new mold of its own.
The original toy also didn’t have the luxury of eschewing the huge springloaded cyber key gimmick and 15 years of advancements in engineering. Robot mode was bad and vehicle was standard cybertronian nonsense but vehicle mode actually managed to be a cohesive car -like thing that implied speed and not be a disjointed mass of parts on jolly Rancher wheels. If the original toy was ugly then this is an affront to the very concept of aesthetics itself.There's a lot more robot trying to hide in that vehicle now. The original toy is far uglier than you remember.
