    Dang that looks surprisingly good. The arms look a bit wonky though, like the blue part almost doesn’t feel like a connected shoulder. But otherwise looks pretty darn good for a deluxe.

    Hotshot!? I’m tired of hasbro edging me. Cybertron Soundwave and Megatron when!?

    can we stop with G1 and go full Unicron trilogy and animated for a year?

    it’s going to take so long to fill up these shelves at this pace.

    Cybertron Hot Shot looks absolutely amazing. I’m getting him, Nucleous, Sideburn, Vector, and Galvatron. They are killing it with the Unicron trilogy updates. Makes me want a Cybertron OP.

    If I was gonna fish for complaints, I think the chest looks a bit too squared off, but that's just sort of the modern style of more simple squared off shapes with the details sculpted in rather than more defined shapes but overall a banger looking update from first impressions.

    It has usable legs, for one. The OG had limited hips due to the sculpt, and no thigh swivels. Made posing dynamically all but impossible, and while this one still seems to have the shorter forearms, they're way bigger than the original's. (mostly due to the elbow being part of the bicep, not the forearm like the original)

    Holy shit you're right.

    For real.

    Cybertron Hot Shot was one of the best deluxes of that line and easily the best design the character ever had.

    If Vector Prime turns out half as well as Hot Shot and Screamer have? Then no way the person who didn’t create these updates doesn’t want a crack at Prime to go with em.

    I remember owning a loose copy of the OG toy a good decade ago, looking forward to getting me a more nimble (if probably less hefty) version. Looks great in both modes, even the back of the car mode looks fairly decent. Very much want.

    Probably the nicest UT redo so far (certainly much better then Starscream that I found to be a crushing disappointment), but dang does it just look kind of cheap compared to the original, lack of paint, the hokey plugs for wings, (obviously) no gimmicks.

    Even the sculpting, while what’s there is nice, seems a bit… simple? Maybe? I’d need to compare against the OG.

    With the way things are going, nice that they kept the windows translucent. And he gets 2 accessories…

    bet it weighs less then half the original.

    This looks great. I really hope we get an orange hot rod version too at some point And not in one of those packs with 4 random figures.

    I like it. It's funny that the 2 Armada characters that aren't Leader and above are getting redone in Cybertron forms.

    I seem to remember a silver repaint of this mold, but I can’t find one on TFWiki or tfu.info — does anyone know what toy I’m thinking of?

    Not sure I prefer this over the Siege version. Maybe a Cybertron Defense version would be more appealing.

    THERE IT IS! that\'s the Cybertron toy i\'ve been waiting for! my god and I thought Starscream was good this looks the best out of the all the new updates.
    Also is he a Tall Deluxe? that comparison pic with cybertron prime makes him look like he's a studio series kup or siege ironhide sized deluxe

    Energon Hot Shot’s redeco was a silver car with “normal” Hot Shot colors for the robot parts. I bet you’re thinking of that!

    Nobody mentioning that Hot Shot has red wings which he didn't not have on the show or the OG toy.

    But the old legends version did.
