    Did Animated really "feature" Hot Shot? He was barely in one episode, I think.

    And he got a toy that was yet another reuse of the Bumblebee mold.

    So for 'not being featured', we actually had to put up with him more than we did for, say, Animated, where he cameos.

    EDIT: Hot Shot is one of the Spychangers in RiD, so he is there too, for those who have forgotten his existence there.

    We often seem to display revisionist history around here.

    Yeah. I kinda wish that Hot Shot had been in it. I mean, they made the toy, why not put him in it?

    Hot Shot is this universe's Hot Rod. See the wiki for more. I would have preferred him to Smokescreen. Seriously, the exact same character with the exact same ending point. Why Smokescreen?

    Always thought Hotshot was lame and should've been a Targetmaster for a rodimus type character. The toys are fun though, even Armada and love TFP Hotshot.

    Er well, it's not like he was given a big role in Animated or the Comics. And I recall the Hot Rod in wfc ds was named Hot Shot

    TFA Hot Shot did squat aside from getting his leg amputated.

    Here's to hoping Hot Shot will do shit again in the future.

    I know. I just was really hoping for him. Armada Hot Shot was my 1st TF toy, and he was pretty cool during Armada. Oh well, dare to dream (and to be stupid. :D )

    it would be nice to see him like this


    [​IMG]

    credit for image goes to cheetor182 of deviantart.

    and you guys he was featured in live script reading in bocon 2013 Voiced by Jason Jansen and he was deadpan snarker

    in it Hot Shot is forced to listen to a story from Kup where he is revealed to have been one of the Wreckers, in which he worked with Wheeljack to stop one of Shockwave's schemes.

    Kup was voiced by Wally Burr

    and wheeljack was still voiced by the same guy in the show


    other non show characters that appear are

    Thundercracker where he is a scientist working under Shockwave in order to help him finish his project to develop laser cores that will allow the transfer of sparks between Decepticon bodies.

    like Wheeljack he is Voiced by James Horan in a British accent

    Rumble and Frenzy

    they are the guinea pigs for Shockwave's transferable laser core project, thus explaining how they went from the small, Mini-Con sized bodies in War For Cybertron and Fall Of Cybertron to the larger bodies they have in the toyline.

    both are Voiced by Greg Sepelak

    Armada Hot Shot is a Hot Rod according to Regeneration One, so I take that as core canon.

    Why doesn't that count? Both RID and Animated Hot Shot were in the TV show. And in the case of Animated he's ONLY in the TV show sense Animated Hot Shot never actually got a toy. He got a prototype but never got a toy.
