Very nice. The head sculpt and robot mode colours detract from the "sweet ink" he has in car mode. The guns are nice, and the mold looks much better now that it's not in yellow. I'd probably never even see the Bee toy if it was on a shelf, since Bayformers has trained my eye to automatically skip over any bright yellow bot I see on shelves.

Not sure if he's going to be a Classics update of an old character, or if I'll just invent someone new for him to be (like my Cyberverse CJ, who is now Rockjumper) but I get a mechanic/engineer vibe from him. Sort of Transformers version of Damon Baird. Fembots dig the Robo-Baird.

Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Well-executed repaint, but I think I'll pass because I'm not a huge fan of Hot Shot as a character, and I just don't need a remolded Bumblebee.

I like it, a lot. I love the head sculpt, particularly how the "goggles" not only cover up his eyes, but also his nose and mouth. Plus his chin has been sculpted to look as if a battle mask has been deployed. Brlliant :D .

Holy crap, you're right about the Baird vibe. Now I definitely must have him.

I might be sneaking a few Prime toys into my G3 collection after all.
Hot shot as Skids, Wheeljack as Downshift and Arcee as Chromia.

Can anyone else think of any other stand-in's?


I'm thinking more of Prime Breakdown as Skids. (I'll change the head.)

I've done the same with Bulkhead as Hoist, with modified transformation.

So far the only Prime toy that I find exciting. Diggin' the Armada / Cybertron - Hot Shot - hybrid homage. Kills bee.
I see the "Classic Skids" in the colors but you can't deny that the toy is basically "Animated Hot Shot" replacement figure.

Damn it! He looks rather good to be fair. Was hoping to avoid getting this one but I may have to just for kicks.

I'm in like with that head sculpt along with the overall repaint. Those photos really sell the figure too whoever did em deserves a pat on the back.

Wow, I didn't know the goggles came up, like Armada Hot Shot! I thought it stayed permanently down!

Yeah, I think my embargo on Prime figures might have to be lifted for this guy. As a huge Armada fan, I think I might have to cave. He's very slick looking.

He's more of an homage to Cybertron Hot Shot with his colors though.

I want to like this figure. I want to paint it up and put it in the Animated collection, but, it just doesn't do it. It doesn't make up for the late Animated Hot Shot. I know it's not trying to. But damn, as much as I want to be endearing to this toy and put it into the collection, the mold is Bumblebee more than anything and I just can't see otherwise. Front hooded chest that slants at a V. I can't even put in the Prime collection because it'll just mean I settled for second fiddle Hot Shot who's probably not going to be a character in TF Prime. This is as effective as putting Slipstream colors and head on an Arcee bike body. I will not be a part of this system, damnit.

Don't you try and ruin this for me, Jelle. :lol:

Yes, the colors are definitely Cybertron Hot Shot, but the goggles are all Armada. :grin:

I can't wait for this one. I just hope Hot Shot shows up in the actual series at some point, even if its just a cameo like in Animated.
