    He looks just like Animated Hot Shot! The robot modes look almost identical in terms of design.

    But here's the real kicker: With the release of Universe Hot Shot, will Animated Hot Shot be pushed back to say 2010?

    He should, they're both based on Armada Hot Shot.

    Okay, okay... I know they're based on Armada Hot Shot, but the real point of this thread is the second part of my post: What do people think about the possible delay in seeing an Animated Hot Shot?

    There's no guarantee that we're even getting an animated hot shot.
    But it would be late '09 at earlest before he came out anyway.

    Yeah, seeing as focus will be on ROTF toys, and Hot Shot already has a Universe toy, it's highly possible Animated Hot Shot won't get a toy at all..

    Too bad, but the Universe one is totally awesome!

    I don't think they look a lot like each other at all, or at least not to the level you're suggesting.
    Of course they're going to have some resemblance to each other because they were both based of the Armada design.

    Although the Animated version also barrows aspects from the Energon and possibly Cybertron versions as well.

    Animated only being scaled back bit during the movie.
    Toys are still going to come out, and I doubt they're all going to be redecos and retools of older characters.

    Animated Hot Shot and Classics Hot Shot's designs look different enough from eachother to be out on the shelves at the same time, like Animated Prowl and Classics Prowl were.

    I think it more depends more on what their alt modes look like, and we have yet to see Animated Hot Shot's.

    If you're talking about Universe Hot Shot then I suggest you check the news forum.

    As Silent Magnus said Animated will be scaled back I dont expect we will get any new leader class Animated toys in 09 and only a few voyagers scattered through with mostly deluxe releases. Also there are like 5 months in 09 before the movie toys will hit the shelves.

    Armada Hot Shot was the first one right (In the sense that he was a main character)

    They are very similar, but if Animated Hot Shot does get a toy, I don't think it'll get pushed clear back to 2010. He's more likely to be released sometime later next year. It also really depends on what his alt-mode is, as a much more different alt-mode could get him an earlier release.

    Depends on what you count as a main character. Personally I consider RID Hot Shot to be the first HS to make it to the main Autobot cast. He was the leader of the Spychangers.

    At one point I remembered Hasbro mentioning that whatever Animated gets, Classics at the time wouldn't get to avoid confusion. e.g Blitzwing wouldn't get a Classics treatment cause he was in Animated, same went for the Dinobots. With Hot Shot getting both an Animated and Universe 2.0 treatment, would it mean that clause is now ineffective or this will just be a special case? Remember, Cyclonus is another, he's getting Universe 2.0 and an Animated character too.

    The rule isn't "If it's in Animated, it'll never be in Universe", it's more like "If a character is released in one line, and the other line's version of that character would be similar in looks, than the second line's version will have to wait till the first line's version is off store shelves". So far Prowl has been the only one in both lines and on pegs at the same time. Ratchet is getting a Universe toy, but not till next year, when Animated Ratchet will be off of store pegs. Basically they don't want to toys on store shelves/pegs that look to similar to each other.
