    I thought during Botcon there was some talk of someone planning to release this toy finally. I don't think they were referring to Titanium HotZone either.

    Here's his tf wiki page if you're not sure who I'm talking about

    I tried it by accessing it directly from the Wiki: it worked. It just took ages to load.

    Sorry about the issues with the link.

    But yeah, anyone remember discussion about this?

    Could it be a club exclusive?

    I checked the club panel thread and didn't see anything about it. Was I just dreaming? Cuz... well... that would suck. I want to add this guy to my collection.

    See, I don't see them doing a widespread release cuz of the whole "trailers-not-being-cost-effective" debacle. Although they could surprise us. Maybe a store exclusive?

    I just dig it. Its like Hot Spot with a brute mode.

    I'll set it straight.


    The club said they wanted to find a way to release him (i.e. their own exclusive), but they were currently unable to.

    Well, good to know I'm not crazy or wasn't dreaming. I figured it would've had to be a club exclusive. I really hope they can figure out how to do it. Would be such a hot seller.

    TFCC is working on this with Hasbro. They are probably trying to get the rights or see if the mold is available. They did not confirm it because they were not sure they could get it. If it was released, my guess is that the price would be about $90 (same as Astrotrain or greater). However, because Titanium Hot Zone is out, it would not be a good idea to release it so soon as to not impede on sales of that toy. There is no doubt that The OTFCC Hot Spot/Defensor was a prime influence for Titanium Universe Hot Zone. Hasbro may be stalling the TFCC Hot Spot for that reason.

    I could totally do without this.

    It's been too long since this mold/figure was something I would have cared to add to my collection.

    I think the only reason (some) people really still want this is because they have been told for years that they can't have it.
