Since the CHMS Glider is getting a Hot House repaint, I figured I'd show the OTHER 3rd party Hot House. This one is created using Reprolabels and the Universe Ultra Powerglide mold.
I bought both the original Hasbro Powerglide and the Henkei recolor when they came out, and swapped arms to make Powerglide more accurate to G1. This left me with a white Powerglide with red arms I had no use for. So what to do? Well I found this Reprolabel set that makes it look like a G1 Micromaster named Hot House. The resemblence is very pronounced in jet mode, less so in robot mode. Really the only stickers you can see in robot mode are the yellow mouth plate and the red stripes on the engines.
Here are pictures comparing the G1 Hot House with my Reprolabels Classic Ultra Hot House.

Yeah, I'm going Takara as well. For the painted rims if nothing else.
Unpainted rims are on of my biggest pet peeves.
YEah, too many Transformers are in a serious need of a good rim job.
