    Today we have another fresh new Transformers Generations Gallery to share with you! Today's sneak peak at the upcoming Toys R Us China Import assortment is Generations Protectobot Hot Spot! Hot Spot is a remold of Universe 2.0 Inferno with a new head and also Grapple's altered shoulders, so he can take 3mm clip weapons on his shoulders!

    Hot Spot is an awesome remold. A perfect shade of blue recalls the original's sky blue deco, while the new head is full of personality. It takes a few liberties with Hot Spot's faceplate, but the end effect is worth it. Like Inferno, this mold exchanges the Generation 1 original's ladder for a water cannon, which is slung under the arm in robot mode. This though seems like less of a departure than it was on Inferno, probably because the original Hot Spot carried twin black rifles. Hot Spot is a great figure and well worth picking up, either when online retailers get their stock in or when he hits Toys R Us later in the year.

    Open the link below to check out the full gallery:

    I think they could put this mold out in every color of the rainbow and I'd buy it lol. I can't wait to get him. He looks awesome.

    I can't wait for the US to get these guys...

    Also I don't know why the package insists it's a water cannon. His original bio said he had blue fireball cannons. Works perfectly.

    So GREAT looking, I'm in love.

    Yeah, such an awesome mold. I'm really hoping for a constructicon colored Hauler redeco of this mold, with the crane remold ofc.

    I'm pretty sure if we get Hauler out of this mold, we won't have anything left.

    Unless they take the Grapple tooling and paint it like Cybertron Mudflap...

    love the mold, and while the head feels more Nemesis Prime to me, it's interesting to see that it's not much of a departure from the original head.

    I think Universe Blades is the other one he's talking about. Most people seem to forget about the existence of Botcon Streetsmart(wise). That or go off on the whole "Botcon exclusives don't count!" spiel. In my experience anyway.

    So, must get this guy.

    Definetly bought on site. Now if Hasbro/Takara can give us a Generations Groove (new mould) I'd be willing to accept Ratchet (Universe 2.0) with a new head and accessories with a slightly different deco as Generations First-Aid.

    If I pick him up, I'll be painting over his facemask. Now I need to think about some G1 guns thanks to the above post.

    Alright, you changed my mind. I'm getting him.

    If they come out with a Hauler version of this mold, I REALLY hope they give him a new head too.
