    It's become a trope now, and I'm pretty sure Bobby knows it. Him using it still is now like a meta reference on it bring a trope. I think o_O

    Wow, this can't be the same designer as their other products could it? It's like amateur level design wise...floating head, thin wrist piece that will definitely snap, and gun peg that doesn't peg.

    Makes me wonder if 589 is even still with them anymore. I'm pretty sure he didn't do the trailer, but I can't remember. He was in one of Paik's live video reviews and that's where I learned that they have multiple people working on the engineering.

    So Hotspot has a prototype? But he's also MX-34 so it seems like he's going to be last.

    That looks nuts in a great way man! Do you know if this is considered a finished design?

    Not sure yet but more than likely considering Fuzz was the same when I saw the first pic...

    That looks like a very nice firetruck with lots of details. But where does it all go in bot mode? Maybe it's past my bedtime, but the description with these photos doesn't make a lot of sense. I'm not seeing the ladder or the black pipes once transformed. Looks like the cab is separate from the back half?
    Maybe I need more than a 2" telephone screen to see what is going on.
