I dunno if I'm liking this enough to warrant a purchase.
While the robot head sculpt ain't looking bad, his alternate mode ain't cutting it for me.
I was thinking if Superlink Blastarm or European Lightformer Ironfist would have wore this mold better...
I agree. I’m going to get it because I want to support non-G1 toys and incentivize Hasbro to do more, but it’s not my favorite of the line.
So, buying a toy based on a G1 character, whose mold is a repaint of another toy based on a G1 character, is your idea of NOT supporting G1?
Hot Shot isn't a G1 character?
nope, armada hot shot was a bumblebee replacement since they didnt have the tm on the name anymore, this hot shot is based on that hot shots final form from cybertron
I was saying that in a question. Because that is news to me if he is. Lol I know the background of the character, my bad.
ah gotcha haha, that makes sense
Nothing for me to add here!
If you liked the CDF, odds are you'll want to pick this figure up because we're likely going to see the other two soon enough. Hasbro seems to be partnering Selects/Retail to finish off teams.
you know, if they decided to homage that by painting this Hotshot yellow and slapping a BB head on it, I'd be up for that!
Still waiting for a BB from the original Cybertron Hotshot car. It got done as a Legend/Legion, but never a deluxe!
It's kinda funny how the Hot Shot/Bee thing ended with the two being merged as Bee was redefined into a camero/sports car.
My bad. I was actually thinking of Hot Spot. Having similar color scheme and sounding names kind of confused me, lol! TIL.
I think some minor remolding and new weapons would have been great and would have made this a guaranteed buy for me but as is, I feel it would provide nearly an identical experience as Hound and I'm not too keen on having multiple molds besides seekers etc
Originally, Movie and Animated Bee were named Hot Shot, but the power of Hollywood managed to get the name back.
I hope a 3P is already thinking about an upgrade kit to make him more Cybertron accurate.
Maybe Blue Bluestreak was Hotshot the entire time ?
Hot Shot may be available at New York Comic-Con 2019
