    look at it closely. couldn't Generations Hotspot's head possibly be a Grimlock head? just sculpt the teeth into the sides of the faceplate and you've got an IDW Grimlock head

    I guess some customizer might do that.

    Nah, if anything, paint it blue, and put it on Botcon Pyro.

    If these are cheap I might have to buy two and sell one incomplete. My Inferno is missing his water missile. :p

    It looks almost Animated to me. The shape of the faceplate seems to imply he as a huge chin

    The head would be great for Pyro too. It's a bit of a shame the Botcon one already exists.

    It's a facepalm face essentially. Also, that head looks particularly Decepticon-y.

    I'm not really feeling Grimlock, but Hasbro could just release Hotspot in colors more accurate to LSOTW Pyro (and a bit more muted than the Botcon release). That way the Botcon release stays unique and the masses get an awesome Pyro.

    Might take you up on that. ;)  Of course if these are 29.99 at TRU I'll not be worrying about it, LOL.

    I think the entire point of having Pyro as a G2 Redux exclusive was to have his colors look bright and fugly...just like the other exclusives of the set.

    Same, it looks like a more rounded, eviler version of Ani. Optimus' head to me.

    A LSOTW Pyro with that head would be more than acceptable to me.

    True, but not everybody who wants a Pyro for their collections on account of him being in LSOTW wants a brightly colored, overpriced Inferno repaint. LSOTW Pyro has much more muted colors and is supposed to look like Optimus Prime due to some kind of mental condition he has.
