Little Known Fact: OctopusPrime can rend steel with his bare hands. Alas, he has discovered that it is illegal to do so in over 20 countries. Including the one he lives in.
I consider Hotrod to be the coolest of all the "Turbo Hot headed punk" characters. Just edging out over Hotshot.
And Cheetor sucks (except his Transmetal 2 form, which was pretty awesome).
