New Img for the unknow version Hot Spot, redeco of the Universe Classic 2.0 Inferno.
Its the Asia exclusive repaint most likely.
Where did you find that pic?
Could as easily be a custom from that pic.
However it's a damn shame if it is the final and the missile is the same as Inferno's. Hot Spot's trademark weapon is a flamethrower, so just making the missile red translucent plastic would have been a killer way to represent that.
It's either a custom or that upcoming Asia exclusive.
When are the Asia exclusives being released?
He is still a fire truck though. Personally, I hate missiles that are supposed to look like fire or water or whatever have you. They just end up in a ziplock bag.
That's defo the Asia Exclusive Hotspot from Classics/ Henkei Inferno. He'd better have a new sculpted head! >:/
He's supposed to.
ooh. ive kinda got a soft spot for hot spot [xD]
this will be tempting to get
That would be nice, I agree.
I don't believe we ever heard release dates?
If that pic is legit and not a custom, than maybe some are coming in the not-too-distant future then?
yup noted... but all we saw were blurry power-point pics.
I don't know whether to jump on this, or any of the Asia Exclusives, when they're released or wait to see if Hasbro brings them over to North America next year. Better to be safe then sorry I guess given Hasbro's record.
Provided I like the new head, after this I think the only way I'd buy this mold again is if it gets randomly redeco'd as RID Optimus Prime/Fire Convoy.
The inferno mold doesn't screen Hot Spot to me, but I may end up buying it anyway depending on the robot mode.
I want it
so that's like what- summin like the SIXTH use of the mould so far?!
Lets do a roll-call:
1. Classics Inferno
2. Henkei Inferno
3. RTS/ United Grapple
4. Millionhero exclusive Artfire
edit:- 5. Botcon 2010 G2 'Spark'
6. and now Hotspot!
You forgt botcon spark
heh, thanks! doh!
Well.... just think of it as ultra-hot blue flame. (But I agree that red or orange would have been a better choice, if for no other reason to get some variety and distinguish it more from Inferno.)
And yet... I still won't be totally 100% content until we also get a Hauler. Repaint addiction is a sad condition.
From Grapple! Oh yes, tell me bout it.
