I already know this is a dangerous topic, but hear me out. Yes, I know these guys have a lot potential sacrificed (some may say slaughtered?) for the sake of their combining gimmick, which is, in theory, pretty cool, but in practice, not so cool. I'm aware of this. Still, I honestly find them to be pretty fun toys, even if they look pretty goofy. Energon Hot Shot's got those horrid shoulders and shares the thigh-high knees that Downshift has. He also shares the "head-on-a-stick" thing with Rodimus, Inferno/Roadblock and Prowl, to an extent. Still, I find the fun to transform and combine in various combinations, posability notwithstanding. I have five of them - Downshift, Prowl, Rodimus, Roadblock and repaint Hot Shot. That leaves one who won't be combined when I decide to mash them together. Tow-Line is already on my to-get list (had him, sold him, kinda regret it, that was a great toy), but he kinda adds two to the match-up list. So, let's just pretend you, should you want to respond, actually share my opinion of these guys. Should I look for a SWAT Prowl, or perhaps a Checkpoint? Maybe get an Inferno for the differently molded head and weapon? Maybe an original color Hot Shot? Or how bout that repainted Downshift? Or is there another one I'm totally missing?
