    On a slightly different twist, I haven't opened up my Henki Hot Shot yet, so I wasn't aware of a diffence either. :D  Glad the TF club is using the Henki version anyway.

    Cool! They definitely look clear. I hate the molded flames but that's a minor nitpick this is pretty awesome! :)

    EDIT: kotaku destroyed my photobucket bandwidth. Sorry no pictures. :( 

    For those of you worried about the back kibble, you can arrange it in many different ways thanks to the gap in the henkei version. You can slide it behind the arms, or use it as boxing gloves (which we know). If you are lucky you can even fit the gun pegs into the hole were the kibble attaches, making the mold look a bit more awesome.

    I'm not to interested in Dion, but for those who don't have the mold, you've got options. And its great they're using the much more superior version of it to boot.

    Hot diggity daffodil! The guns really make this toy a lot of fun, I am glad he is coming with them.

    It also means, with two sets, I can arm up either one with two guns in his hands, and another two on his arms. Kablammo!

    Using the Henkei mold of HodShot definitely helps getting more folks to join/re-join the membership... They did make a good choice for this one... however i feel that the paint application on this Dion wasn't completed.
    (quick reference... the url is The Official Transformers Collectors' Club )

    I like the confirmation of the launchers, but this image intrigues me quite a bit.

    Look closely at the prototype Jolt. Yeah, I know its standing, but look at the feet. It looks to me like the feet on the prototype has more surface area than the release one. This makes me curious if Dion's Mini-con will have retooled feet to match the prototype one.

    I don't own Hot Shot..but I've heard about the arm kibble. Now, I don't really care about the guns, and to be honest, I'm not a fan of chrome/ like the Universe paintjob better.

    It seems there's some black parts with screwholes in his shoulders in the Universe version. By screwing these parts out, would one be left with the same gaping holes as the Henkei version?

    Can anyone tell me this? Because I'm still thinking of picking him up, and then I might 'fix' that. Thanks. :)

    Good news about the launchers.

    I switched the back pieces of kibble on my TFU Hot Shot, helps a little, and keep him in robot mode, he almost isn't bad after you swap his kibble.

    Least Dion's free, too, gotta say, the improved design as well as the look is growing on me, and makes me look forward to getting him.

    That's because he has supports on the inside of his feet... Why'd they get rid of them?


    Sorry, no. I'm afraid that only stops the parts from tabbing together in vehicle mode. The Gaping holes themselves were filled.

    Dion = Win. Better Dion w/cannons = unnecessary but appreciated! Can I please have Cop-Tur as the Mini-Con?

    I may get Dion, but I doubt I will join the club so I will probably pick it up from someone who does not want it.
