    I'm hoping it's an overestimate, but I want to about $250 set aside for him

    Considering the MP level figures we are getting for $130-$200, they would be pretty foolish to price it that high.

    Can't wait for a video of Harris Loureiro, he is one of the best stop motion artist of YouTube.

    Preorder up at TFS Express: Generation Toy Guardian GT-08E Foo Fighter

    Using the cheapest shipping to California will set someone back 150 USD. Otherwise if you choose the fastest shipping option, it will be 175 USD all in.

    Seems reasonable.

    I love when people compare releases to the 'Toon when it clearly takes it's design cues from the Toy.

    Man, he's a big boy, but I'm glad the ladder is detachable.

    Whole truck front on the forearms is inelegant, but Hotspot seems cursed to have weird, bulky arms.

    Was a little disappointed at first they didn't give him a blue helmet, but seeing it up close it's a very nice head sculpt. I like the slightly blue, almost grey mouth plate (wish someone could get the colors this good on Starscream's head).

    Glad he has no mouth, I like him resembling Optimus.

    I have a bit a head canon that way before the war and the Protectobots, Hotspot was an emergency service worker on Cybertron who saved a young Orion Pax and largely inspired the future Optimus' "be strong enough to be kind" philosophy.

    I like him a lot. Seriously, can't wait to get this guy combined. Nice size though, compared to masterpiece scale.

    Looks like he's big enough to go against Zeta's Onslaught one on one.

    GT / TFM bots scale well with MP.

    dang that is reasonable. what are the chances they will reissue other limbs. i only bought 1 so far (streetwise) as i wasn't sure they'd ever finish (all 4 were available back when i bought streetwise) or that i'd want it. hmmm

    Yeah, Powertrain was 179.99 on release as I recall. For Hot Spot? Yeah, I'm ok with this. There are always ways to get them for less expensive but from TCP, etc? That's about right.

    Any rumors of a mini-fig like some of their previous combiner releases?
