    I'd put Strongarm on the short list of modern media line figures to crossover into Generations at some point.

    Also from UT was Smokescreen into Hoist and Overhaul into Leobreaker.

    Actually, heh.

    They could take Hound's jeep mode (Energon Strongarm) and repaint it into RiD 2015 Strongarm and have a pretty slick double-reference.

    That was a repaint, not a whole new body

    He's ok. Not my favorite use here, but not the worst. They did their best with paint to make it work, which is key. Cybertron was definitely the best iteration of Hot Shot.

    What I didn't see if anyone mentioned it, is that currently there is one Hot Shot on TV and he transforms into an ATV. That's not too different from a "Cybertronian Jeep".
    They may have been going for a toy/cartoon sinergy deal here, while also homaging the old Hot Shot and reusing a mold.

    That name sounds utterly bad....

    Apart from that Hotshot looks horrible.

    I think the biggest letdown is there is no Cyber Key at all. I could easily see the Cyber Key being a decorated shield, especially since the CDHS only had the generic Autobot one, it'd fit right in alongside Voyager Prime's Autobranded shield. Someone get Shapeways!

    This Hot Shot is definitely worse in almost every way than the original (aside from articulation) but I don't understand at all why people think the new Galaxy Convoy isn't better in almost every way. It's scaled better, has better proportions. The only negatives I can see is the smaller robot mode not being accurate and the hollowness of the guns on his back.

    The original scaled perfectly to the show, since the show basically just used the CAD files for character models. The inner robot not being accurate is HUGE to GF Convoy given how often he wasnt in the armor, his truck doesn't have the flight mode, no matrix chamber, I mean.

    No he wasn't. Even in Super Mode he was only a couple heads taller than Deluxes like Hot Shot. Definitely not the towering figure the toy cuts.

    The difference in heights between the different "size classes" in the show were not nearly as large as they were with the toys.

    He had new parts, unlike all of the other “power up” characters.

    As cool as a new Hot Shot is in the Cybertron color scheme, I'm still sad we'll never get an update of the OTHER Hot Shot (and any other Spychanger for that matter).

    Never say never, we may see Spychangers come after the Micromasters
    Ah. Never had either, so I didn't know
