    Forgive me if this has been posted.

    I just found images originating from E-hobby which show Henkei Hot Shot with weapons, something I haven't seen on previous photos. Check them out along with some other new photos of HotShot here:

    Oh wow. The chrome is actually well placed.

    Also, I hope the windshield folds in or something. It looks really silly sticking out of his leg like that.

    that still looks like a painted mock up. He does have a rather unique look, the designer has captured a lot of the feel of armada but improved it, reminds me of the 2002 MOTU fourhorsemen sculpts vs the originals!

    hopefully the new toy incorporates some of the multiple gimmiks of the original.

    Looks nice, but I'll just get the Universe one, instead. Cheaper.

    Looks nice, I wonder where the weapons store & if we're getting them in Universe or not.

    Hasbro never said he wouldn't have any weapons. They said he wouldn't have the axelzooka.

    This is a hand-painted sample, so the final version will look flatter, the same thing Hasbro does.

    According to Walky and the TF Wiki:

    The missile launchers are his tailpipes.

    Whomever painted this Henkei prototype did a strange job. The door windows on his arms have been completely painted over.

    Just noticed that, kinda bugs me how that just looks to be hanging there, I really hope there's a better way to place them in bot mode!

    I buy both anyway, but yeah, if the Henkei has the weapons that just makes buying both versions even sweeter!:thumbs2:

    Meh...looks pretty good, but the blower/engine in robot mode looks even more out of place than the Universe one because of the icky chrome...

    Couldn't care less about the weapons, as long as his alt mode won't look like it's missing a big part (I reckon movie 74 Bumblebee..he looked fine without missile launcher attached)..

    Will pick up the Universe one probably..its a cool figure, but Universe one will be enough for me. :)
