    I've bought A LOT from that website. And remember, you still have Paypal's protection.

    I've bought from them on both their site and eBay and it went well each time.

    I'm ready I'm ready.

    I wasn't ready for the potential $150+ price tag though. =(

    For a bot this size, what were you expecting? Didn't their Motormaster go for about that?

    TFM is the same company. Yeah, their Motormaster was close to the same price but he also included the majority of the combiner pieces. Hotspot only comes with the combiner hands and guns, so I'm surprised that he's priced so high. I'm still going to purchase it however......

    I guess we should be happy they aren’t inflating the price as much as other mp especially considering the how long ago TFM motormaster was. Granted the scale is more in between.

    Looks like he is around the same size as TFM Powertrain/Motormaster, maybe even slightly longer

    FP Monstructor does it for me. Let them do Landcross, no one else has done that yet.

    Just like Powertrain, he comes with all the combiner bits, so the price doesn't seem unreasonable

    To me, the price doesn't seem unreasonable if you're going for the whole combiner.
    Hot Spot is about what the cost of TFM's Motor Master was, or a little more.
    MM comes with all the combiner parts, Hot Spot does not.
    The calves, or lower leg support, we recieved in the form of First Aid's trailer. However, First Aid didn't cost significantly more than the other bots.

    So when adding them all up, the total cost of Defensor shouldn't be that much more than the total cost of Menasor.

    But if you're comparing the prices individually, or not going in on the whole set, yeah, Hot Spot may seem a little more $$ than Motor Master.
