I wasn't planning on doing another post about Hot Wheels Battle Force 5 yet but something in a recent episode was too good to pass up.
In the episode "Battleship 5," the team goes to Planet Vandal to attempt to retrieve something from underneath its ocean. However, since team member Stanford hates Planet Vandal, they tell him that they're going to the beach. He brings his swimsuit and that swimsuit is a speedo.
Stanford spends most of the episode clad in his speedo. He's not exactly the most muscular member of the team (not to mention the tan lines) but let's put this into perspective. I cannot think of any other CG action show that has prominently featured a guy in a speedo. I'm pretty certain it never happened on ReBoot, as much as I would love to see the likes of Matrix and Bob that way.
This episode isn't the first time Stanford has rocked his speedo. He appeared briefly in one in the season one episode "Gladiators." I hope that sometime in the future, we get an episode that shows us what the rest of the guys look like under their uniforms.
Below, you'll find a selection of screencaps from both episodes mentioned above. The image archive linked at the end of this post also contains extra screencaps I didn't post.
