Mercutio assumed correctly. It is the official Hasbro MPM-07 Bumblebee.
Why are people still asking this I wonder? Does anyone still intend to get hot fire?
i am sure many people would like to sell their hot fire to whoever still wants it if they haven't smashed hot fire and threw it to the trash bin yet.
I do.... for cheap.
I don't think many people got him. The word about his poor QC got out quickly and most of us were waiting for reviews since it was a new company. When the TFEVO'S rep said that he couldn't recommend buying hot fire, it was over.
Thanks! I think that looks about right according to the vehicle dimensions on Red Goblin's chart.
I recall seeing a post about someone asking about changing the head.....check out this repost for a custom, link below

I actually really like that. Like a lot.
Needs more detail in the face to fit in with movieverse. Looks like they just used the G1 MP face.
Well he did use the G1 MP face. I think an IDW style head would be better.
Well this thing is just astounding.
First thoughts? Wow. My pictures are the first time I transformed him to bot mode (no instructions but a little help from emgo lol) and then the car mode pics are after transforming back to vehicle the first time. Since then, I've transformed him 3 or 4 more times. It gets easier each time. Once you start to realize where each piece goes and how it all works, transformation starts to become very fluid. Nice. Articulation is pretty fantastic all around, except for the ankles. The lack of forward to back is just as disappointing as I expected it to be and definitely limiting for a lot of action poses. Everything else about the figure so far is top notch though. Absolutely would recommend it to anyone still on the line about it. As my first 3rd party figure, I'm very satisfied
Your first 3P Bayformers? I highly recommend UT Challenger if you haven't bought it yet.
MP-44 is going to have to be every bit as special as previews have shown to top La Hire as my favourite figure this year. It's just such a well executed figure.
Not to mention you could probably buy 4 LA Hire's for the price of MP-44, too
Completely agree. You can mistransform his feet for some forward tilt.
Seconded, Challenger is hot magic.
TFSource came through with the replacement part! Good thing too, because when I went to remove the old one, the superglue repair failed.
Now.. Stop the time!
I really wish I could get that chest piece plugged in all the way. Any tips
Does it look like the pin to the hinge is sticking out? That was a problem with mine and I managed to squeeze it in place all the way with my needlenose pliers.
