    CUSTOM WFC HOTSPOT

    following the new line of the TF toys, here is a version of the Protectobot Hotspot. I noticed that hasbro has made visual designs of the other combiner leaders, more specifically Motormaster, Onslaught, and Silverbolt. I didnt want to leave out one of my favorite combiner leaders.

    For the main body, I used a Starwars/Transformers crossover figure and used a deluxe sunstreaker head and added some antennas and covered his mouth. Also painted this custom to match his G1 colors.

    Those colors are perfect Hotspot. The only thing he needs is a water cannon.

    This looks really good! It works well for Hotspot, and the vehicle mode works well as a Cybertronian one, particularly in the WFC style.

    Very original idea and it definitely works as the character. Nice job.

    Very nice! I've seen that mold worked into Magnus before, but Hot Spot's blue works really well.

    Absolutely ace, and it actually does feel like it could be in that game. Very nice.

    That looks fantastic. Who would have thought with a head change, any of the Star Wars TFs would be cool. Kudos for turning a goofy ass figure into something amazing!!

    the paintwork and idea are wonderful. everytime i see one of these crossover customs I am amazed at the creativity. the base figure certainly did not look this good before you customized it. excellent job.

    Without the pastel panel lining it feels more like WWI than WFC, Still, awesome paint job. Great work, bro.

    Hands down, this is the best thing I've ever seen done with that toy. I keep looking at those Star Wars Transformers and I think of the possiblities, but the cheap quality of them continually turns me off. Bravo to you, sir. Great work!
