    So, most of us have by now seen the images from the UK Argos catalogue for the Transformers Prime 'Hot Shot' toy. I'd like to get a gauge of who feels the character will actually appear in-show as the toy appears, or whether he's a toy line only character who most likely won't see an in-show appearance?

    Assuming that the blue Bumblebee repaint/retool is the Hot Shot we've seen a listing for (hasn't been confirmed, so I think there's still a chance it's something else), than I doubt he'll show-up in the show at all. Maybe as a cameo kind of role in a flashback pertaining to Bee's back story, but that is the most I could imagine seeing of him in the show.

    You know, I would normally say that Hot Shot doesn't have a shot of being in the show. Then I remember Tigatron (and his toy didn't even have a new head). Do I really think it'll happen? Not really, but I won't burn any bridges here.

    This. I seriously doubt they are going to add a blatant repaint character to the show.

    ..if that blue repaint IS Hotshot.

    He'll probably pull a Tailgate.

    Yeah sure why not.

    He could be BB's older Brother who joined the Wreckers years ago before their disbandment before the Battle of Darkmount. Since then he has hidden out on Velocitron the speed planet.

    Anyone remember Hot Shots deco from Transformers: Cybertron? And how he was kind of blue?
    Yeah, that BB repaint is probably him... but then again, same model characters aren't new to the franchise. Or to this series. Tailgate, anyone? Sunstreaker/Sideswipe, anyone? Prowl/Smokescreen/Bluestreak? Cheetor/Tigatron? It's still possible.

    If he IS in the show, then I thought he could be pre-mutilation Bee. Cocky, over-confident and a hot head, but it gets him hurt, badly. But then i released that that would clash with WFC, so I ignored it and continue to assume he'll never appear (which is good - I'd much rather new-character repaints than "Sea-Mission Bumblebee" repaints.)

    BW Blackarachnia, g1 Thundercracker, Movie Grindor, BW Tigatron, G1 Skywarp, g1 Red Alert, G1 Bluestreak, G1 Smokescreen, G1 Ironhide would all disagree (and this is not including those featuring in comics)

    At least this has a new head

    Don't try to to match the continuity with WFC/FOC. It'll just give ya a headache.

    Oh I know. But I'm assuming they still want to push it as a sort of 'themed continuity'. Unless they've wised up to what the rest of the world is thinking. :lol

    Yeah, I'm glad Hasbro gave HS a new head, but my God I hope that's not all he'd get if he's a direct to screen translation of what this toy depicts. In the old days you take an existing vehicle, slap a new coat of paint on him and maybe a new head, and all of a sudden you have a new character, but these days that doesn't happen all that much.

    My guess is this is a toy only character, and meant as an toy homage to fans of earlier character incarnations.. nothing more. Praying...

    Seeing as Prime Ironhide is in no way a repaint of Ratchet...

    I was arguing his point of saying "a redeco of a pre-existing character will not show up in fiction" when it has been done several times before in OTHER transformers cartoon/film media

    Why would he? Ratchet's a medic, a bloody medic! Ironhide is a warrior, there's a big difference between the two. So yeah no Ratchet re-paint please.
