    Robot Kingdom confirmed a deluxe class Hot Shot for wave 3 which may possibly hint at him being a new character in the cartoon.

    What do you make of this? What kind of role/personality do you think he will play?

    As I posted in the other thread...

    This "Hot Shot" character probably is Hot Rod/Rodimus. He seems to be getting a push in the IDW universe as of late, he appeared in the WFC DS game, and there was concept art of FOC with what appeared to be a Hot Rod/Rodimus-looking bot. All of these continuities share elements, keep in mind, and since we already have Bumblebee I can't imagine them introducing an Armada-type Hot Shot character.

    Perhaps he'll be introduced early on and take over as leader of Team Prime, then when Optimus comes back he'll be bumped down to second-in-command (or maybe he'll just take off like Wheeljack).

    Or maybe he'll be Armada Hot Shot and become addicted to Synthetic Energon. Dunno.

    I couldn't be more excited. I think Prime Hot Shot is going to take on the role of the classic Hot Rod/Rodimus story arc with some minor twists and turns of course. I could definitely see the character being similar to Armada Hot Shot in which he was always destined to lead (again, similar to G1 Hot Rod).

    I want the character to look like the Animated Hot Shot we had the chance to see briefly, but I'm also torn because it'd be sooooo sick to see the flame deco.

    I doubt he'll be in the show. Ironhide is getting a Prime toy and isn't going to be in the show.

    I do hope it is Hot Rod because I'd love for him to be in Prime continuity, although if it is Hot Rod I can already hear Protoman screaming over the name change.

    I don't want to jump the gun too quickly and say alright new character on the show. With such a tiny cast of characters the toy line is going to have to put in non-cartoon characters to keep from doing the same handful of characters over and over so Hot Shot might be a toy only character.

    Although it would be nice to expand the cast so I'll at least keep my fingers crossed that perhaps he's going to be a new character on the show. The Autobots could kind of use a little more character to ranks right now.

    Hot Rod as a substitute, temporary leader of the autobots could be very, very interesting =D

    We're sure this Hotshot isn't just the first of a slew of repaints? Like - Bumblebee mold with a new head and painted green or something?

    I'd love to see him look like RID Hot Shot did, but I think that the more Hot Rod like character and design is more likely. Either way, if he is in the show, I don't see him being a permanent addition to the team, but more as a short-term cameo role, and maybe some appearances later on. We'll just have to wait and see.

    If he was just a Bumblebee repaint/retool, then I doubt they would be shipping it in the same case as Bee himself.

    I like the idea but I don't think it will happen in Prime.

    Its too good to be true.

    If they put Hot Shot in but base him on Hot Rod I 'll be extremely pissed. I want the real Hot Shot, not Rodimus

    Hasbro's been unable to get ahold of the name Hot Rod for a while now. If they could, he'd definitely be Hot Rod instead of Hot Shot.

    They called Hot Rod simply Rodimus for years, why can't they call him that now?
