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.
Hot Spot Bot & Alt Mode Review (Including Transformation):
*ADD ON - Reviewer said he had no instructions, so he wasn't sure if he folded the ladder correct. He also said that his combine mode video is coming out soon.
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.
Gotta say, this looks great
I am thrilled this is finally getting released and keep the pics/reviews coming @Hougangkid !!
Looks like he's big enough to go against Zeta's Onslaught one on one.
Ahem Generation Toy GT-8E FOO FIGHTER / GUARDIAN COMBINER
Aw man, I've this, BFB Mocha, Flametoys Windblade, and maybe DX9 Gabriel and Badcube Grump all before the end of the year.
GT / TFM bots scale well with MP.
And PO'd that big bot. FIIINALLY can finish this set.
Even though TCP may not be as quick on the CS end, I feel safer it being a bit more local if there is a problem.
Guess they are fools.
That's similar to what Powertrain cost back then.
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
All limb bots can still be purchased here: https://bababobo00712.com/c/generation-toy-0384
And yes he is super reliable.
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?
