    His flamethrowers proved us his 'cool' name! XD His sense of humour, absolutely funny, "Wait! Can't I get a second opinion on that?" I loved his homage to his Armada counterpart, and the colours of all three parts in the Unicron Trilogy. Red from his upgrade after Nemesis Prime nearly wiped the floor with him, yellow from Energon, and light blue and silver from his Cybertron form. Obviously I have not much negative thoughts against him.

    The downside... I think he needs a better voice actor. Bill Fagerbakke was alright I guess, but he needs to sound a little younger. I don't do young bots having a broken voice... He also needs more screen time, damnit! I'm a big Hot Shot fan, so don't try and make him a minor character... it would be disappointing to not see him again.

    So what do you guys think of him? Do you love him? Hate him? Or just neutral thoughts of in between?

    I think it's kind of early to tell how Hot Shot is. We've only seen him for about five minutes.

    I think he was really good from what we saw. The flame-throwers were awesome. I'd really love to get a toy of him, but unlikely for several reasons.

    Given his role in the show, it was more a case of "wHy My LeG hUrT?" :D

    I loved Hot Shot.

    So what, two flame thrower bots? (him and Jetfire)

    From what little I've seen of him I like him. His flamethrowers were cool and he had an interesting sense of humor. Very likable character... of course I liked him in A/E/C (even if he could be a tad annoying at times and had no personality that he was aware of in Energon) so I'm already a little biased. I'd love a figure of him, but his design is so close to his original and with them just having released the Universe version... I just don't see it happening.

    i'm not a big fan of unicron trilogy and characters from those series but animated HotShot gain some love from me, thought he'd be more annoying even on 1 minute screentime, but overall he's cool for what i saw :) 

    and maybe i'm weird but i really enjoyed the part when his leg was injured, but more 'enjoying animation' kind of way, it really looked good and you could tell he's heavily damaged, same with Bumblebee's wound after Sari stabbed him. I liek when you can see bots and cons are really damaged.

    Those flame-throwers are awesome

    Nice nods to the colors he was shown having in A/E/C

    I agree the voice isn't the greatest

    Be nice to see more of him

    I liked him for what we saw of him, the flame throwers fit him, but it does make him a bit repetitive with Jetfire too.
