    If I'm totally in the wrong area, my apologies, and I ask that you please redirect me to the proper location to post this. I'm still new here. Sorry

    I was wondering though, would it be possible for someone like Perfect Effect (since they seem to be the main ones modifying the Combiner Wars line) to create a HotSpot front end replacement kit?

    Not the I'm opposed to the Rosenhauer Panther HasTak used, I just think it looks slightly out of place with the rest of the team (fire truck normally used for airport firefighting (though not restricted to it) while the rest look practically normal everyday emergency crew save for Rook)

    anyway, Hotspot's toes easily unscrew and aren't pinned to the toy whatsoever. I wonder if this is possible or if it's even been discussed before, I made some photoshopped images of what I mean

    here's the links to the pictures

    (showing the screws can come off)

    I'd be down for a G1-esque front end. It looks good.

    (And a thread like this belongs in the Third-Party forum.)

    I'm not really for other front ends,it just does not look right on the rest of the truck. An option might be that PE or whoever might do a whole new figure, like Dr.Wu did with a new mixmaster for CW Devastator. Or, somebody could make an upgrade kit to allow GDO Hot Spot to become a CW compatible torso.

    I'm okay with the figure as he currently is. I get what you're trying to do here, however. It would be great for those who want more differentiation from the Onslaught reuse of the mold.

    What I want with Hotspot is to make him taller and better guns.
