A summary of Hot Shot, Well, before you all vote for him, here is some back story. Not so long before the yellow or blue kid appeal character that fans of a certain generation would come to love and know as their own Bumblebee was a Spychanger who was also named Hot Shot, but was colored in Black with Flames and was the leader of a group of ninjas. Later, when Armada was being created Hasbro had decided to bring Bumblebee back, but due to trademark issues the character was renamed Hot Shot who was more G1 Bumblebee and less RID Hot Shot. Soon during the course of the Armada television show Hot Shot would gain many great things, such as the Star Saber or be in charge of the Autobots for a while along with Jetfire. On a separate occasion, he was also granted the Matrix of Leadership which he declined. 10 years later, on the show Transformers: Energon, Hot Shot was stationed as a commander of Ocean City and had to face many challenges of his own, even as a matured bot. By the time Cybertron came along, he was now a blue sports car. One of his first accomplishments was competing in and completing the Planet Cup race, earning him the Cyber Planet Key and a new ally in the form of Override. Later, He and fellow Autobots Red Alert and Scattershot were terrible wounded by Megatron, only to be healed by the Light of Primus/"burning justice" which enabled the trio to form the Cybertron Defense Team because of their new military alt-modes. Finally at the end of the series, he, despite his new bulky alt-mode soon won his way into being in charge of his own Planet, winning it in a race. Finally, as the 2007 movie came out, the main kid appeal character was Bumblebee, who's now known today for clogging shelves and stealing back roles such as in Animated when he sto- deserved it because of his Movie. Luckily for some fans, Hot Shot did eventually appear and was not a mutation of Derrick Wyatt, but someone who actually looked cool. These days, he can be spotted as shelves as a blue Bumblebee redeco/retool, retool because of his much nicer face. What he has for store in the future is anyone's guess really, but one can hope that just once he can replace Bumblebee yet again.
