GDO Hot Spot Ladder/Gun upgrade (Shapeways)

Postby zoso1900 » Sun Dec 02, 2012 4:40 pm

When I think of Hot Spot the first thing that comes to mind is a blue firetruck with a ladder. Sadly GDO Hot Spot was missing said ladder. I decided that with the help of Shapeways I can add that classic G1 Hot Spot look to GDO Hot Spot.

The upgrade includes an extendable ladder that measures about 12". There is an add on piece that will turn the existing gun into a handheld gun with a 5mm handle. The last piece is the attachment that is used for both the ladder and gun to attach it to Hot Spots arm. The ladder can store on his back in bot mode using existing holes located on his back. And in alt mode you can have either the ladder or gun on his back.

Please comment and let me know what you think.

For those interested the set can be purchased at the link below.

Thanks for looking!

Best Shapeways product eva! Amazing Job Lad, Amazing!

If i had to nit pick anything, It wouldn't be anything there, but something that isn't. A new missile to replace that blue drop with a black extension to make his weapon appear more like his original G1 gun.

Gonna have to pick this up, HOT SPOT needs it. =P~
