    Major fail! Looks nothing like Hotspot, except for the head. Instead of wasting money on producing these inaccurate repaints Hasbro should've invested that money in the FoC line. But we get upscaled legends figures instead.

    Ehh - I'm not really a fan of painting one figure into another character just because they share a similar alt mode. I'd rather character repaints be based on the look of the robot mode as that's where their character usually is. It's nice enough but it still just looks like a blue Inferno to me. Or with that head, a blue Optimus Prime. I can see some potential mix and match with an Inferno going on to make an Optimus figure because of the window chest. Pity the blue of Hotspot's legs wasn't darker for a more Optimus colour leg-swap.

    Yeah, same thing I was thinking. I think it would have made a world of difference if they had given the fig a new head sculpt based on the G1 animation model instead trying to base the fig on the actual G1 toy.

    First Onslaught and Silverbolt, now this? Why do they keep making combiner leaders that have no ability to combine with other bots? These suck. It is no different than making one Constructicon or one Predacon. Useless.

    Nice idea, I'll have to give that a shot. Throw in an Animated Motormaster for the fun of it too.

    If you think the head looks like Optimus Prime, then you are merely paying this figure a casual glance... not to split hairs, but Prime's mask comes to a point down the center of his face, while Hot Spot's mask has three angles, giving him a flat plain across the middle of his face.

    I think I'll use Motorbreath. His name is just WAY too cool

    And now I'm almost considering keeping Botcon Razorclaw.

    For those that complaining about the robot mode. Simple turn head around, turn waist around, and swap the hands and presto, a G1 looking robot mode.

    Will buy. You know what else I'd buy?

    A LSTOW Pyro repaint using that new head.

    neat! but I think I'll be sticking to my Million Publishing Generations Artfire, first.

    Edit: Is it just me or do I get a ''Grimlock'' vibe from the head sculpt? Maybe it's the vents carved on either side of his mouth-plate. *shrugs* oh well...

    I was thinking the same exact thing! I wonder if we might get one or two other figures like we did with DOTM Cyberverse Guzzle
