Hot Shot Part Quatreon January 21, 2012 at 10:42 pm
A few days ago, case assortment information for the upcoming Transformers Prime: Robots in Disguise toyline revealed that we were getting a new Deluxe (now redubbed “Revealer”) Hot Shot toy. Despite my super obvious love for all things Hot Shot, I wasn’t all that excited. See, we learned previously that “Hot Shot” is a name that had been reassigned to Hot Rod for trademark ownership reasons. Screw a Hot Rod! Anyway, I figgered it’d just be a Hot Rod toy. Meh!
But then the Argos catalog over in the great United Kingdom gave us photos, and there was this blue Bumblebee with a new head. This head has a visor that is lowered over the eyes. Now, this image had no label of any sort, so it could still be anybody, but I’m laying odds it’s a friggin’ real Hot Shot. Not the Hot Roddy kind, but a genuine JaAm-loving Hot Shot. He’s in his Cybertron colors since, well, y’know, he can’t be yellow for obvious reasons, but it’s definitely looking like a Hot Shot.
So I made sure I was the first guy to do fan art of him.
