I was never totally sold on this sculpt. Only version of it I really want is the Pyro from that Botcon set a few years back. Seems like a pretty nice, big and chunky bot though.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Same here, it just doesn't scream Inferno to me. I mean, Inferno's supposed to be some tall, lanky sort of fellow, not chunkimus.

The mold -looks- good, but I don't know that it's really been used well yet. Pyro is really the only good use so far, but he was a botcon exclusive unfortunately.

I own Inferno, Grapple and Hot Spot and I´d buy the mold again.

I wouldn't describe Inferno as tall and lanky.

I think it's a perfect mold for Inferno. I have Inferno and Grapple, and if I ever see Hot Spot in TRU I'll buy it in a heartbeat.

Hm, perhaps. He is certainly reasonably leggy though. As for Energon Inferno, I can't stand his head. xD I love Roadblock though, I picked him up a few months ago and Prowl as a pair of pants for him, love the combined mode.

hmm.....Must have this figure. I liked hotspot in g1 and the use of this mold so yeah when I see him, he is coming home with me. I have not seen him at my local TRU yet though strangely. But I have seen GDO powerdive and megatron. SW55 out

All hail Megatron! :CON:

I love this mold. I have Inferno and Grapple. They are big, chunky, nice transformation, and fun to play with. I think the mold fits Hot Spot well. If my local TRU ever gets him in, I will buy him up.
Check out my collection!

Hot Spot looks nice...problem is he doesn't combine.

Looking at Hasbro's recent attempts at combiners, I'd rather have more Voyagers.

I finally snagged him yesterday along with Swerve and Cliffjumper since I had a coupon.

Hot Spot was one of the few G1 characters I had as a kid so I had to have him. The bright blue really pops too.
