    So I got galaxy upgrade prime and initially I was concerned that while the update was nice it wasn't the one they deserved however after getting him I can happily say this is the update they deserved 20191014_162500.jpg

    It seems my supplier of Slamdance has either changed his mind or IDK but would anyone else who doesn't have G2 Sideswipe like to split the set?

    Can't help but put some of Cromar's bits on Hot Shot and also give him Red Swoop / Swoop II's sword so he's Cybertron Defense Hot Shot accurate. :p

    Generations Selects Cromar is also more G1 accurate without all the guns over his shoulders and arms, and looks less like Siege Six Gun without them. :p

    This guy is just too damn cool! I love Impactor’s shoulder mounted ‘Predator’ cannon.

    Just so much play value in one Deluxe is a great thing. Now for some blast effects fun!

    Obviously there’s no dedicated port for the blast effects, but they wedge into the cannon well enough.

    I just love the versatility of this figure and the accessories he comes with. Now these next ones I took after the blast effects photos (which I only slightly regret because as cool as these pics are, IMHO, they would’ve popped even more with this little detail). Call me crazy.........

    .....but doesn’t that red Autobot symbol just look amazing against that purple?!? Such a small detail, but I think it adds so much to the character. I think it really does look awesome! Enjoy!

    I was actually gonna do that with my Sixgun as I have no interest in Cromar. If I did that would definitely leave the guns with Hotshot. Never seen G1 Cromar before actually, he does look more accurate without the guns.

    I really like the look of that sword coming out of the shoulder cannon on his arm, would never have thought of that and I love it!

    I never had any UT toys so I was curious as to why people kept giving Hot Shot a sword. This makes sense

    Not an Impactor fan, but if the 3-pack version was sold separately I'd be tempted. I just don't like that head sculpt. The helmet is all lumpy and he's making the same sour face my stepmom does when she's mad. Creeps me out.
    Glad you like him though! Everyone needs at least one person who likes them.

    I got the retail Impactor and have the 3-pack one coming. The retail one's head is nice, but even though I can't stand IDW I actually like the Spartan design a little bit more.
    Oh well, best of both worlds I guess.

    Oh, he also has a little seat:
