Man, I really like this Hot Shot. He and his Cybertron Defense Team self are both pretty neat, not the best articulation, but still really nice. I like both of them!

And I also came to the realization that he and the Beast Wars show model Transmetal Rattrap share transformation schemes.

His transformation is also very close to G1 Hot Rod, which is no accident.

YMMV. The red version is also ungodly rarespensive.

Or were you talking about new-character redeco Excellion? ;)

Nah, I love this blue and yellow look. I really wish both versions of Hot Shot from Cybertron had bicep and thigh swivels, they needed that to truly shine!

Indeed. But thigh swivels were luck of the draw on anything smaller than a Leader, and ball-joint elbows were usually considered equivalent to having bicep swivels.

I needed something to calm me down, so have a silly pic of Snarl nomming a piece of bread:

EDIT: Realized I forgot to post my Planet Leaders shelf in here

Gonna spruce it up soon. Also put some additional figures on it.

I feel like once i have my 2 new shelves, I need to make a spot for the 4 Planet leaders, and maybe Galaxy Force Prime to go with them

That'd be pretty cool. In my case the big empty spot between them is reserved for Primus whenever I finally get him.

Maybe those 4, TLK Cybertron, and Unicron of Light can be a shelf together for my collection. Also need a spot for Platinum Omega, he's just on the floor standing right now

That sounds pretty awesome. And maybe you can have him in his vehicle components in front of them?

I can finally do this. Now if only I had the headpiece..

Got the Cybertron Defense Team out. Took a photo of them together on my desk, and they'll be joining the Planet Leaders on the shelf

They really are. HasTak decided "Let's give the Autobots heavy artillery" and executed the idea brilliantly. And their weapons are perfectly usable in both modes!

I know it's only sort of on topic, but the Botcon retool of the 1 in the middle into BW Megatron is my only non-G1 grail.

Yeah, Evac is very nicely poseable, and he pulls off the day-glo orange really well. Probably because it makes sense for a rescue helicopter.

Best part is this is the Takara one too, super nice detail to the chest paintwork wise.

Ultra Magnus is a fun time too, I will put him on Prime tonight, finally have the alt color schemes together as last!

The Armada Wheeljack mold has proven to be really fun, I like it both as Wheeljack and as Shattered Glass Sideswipe. It's cool!

I need to get a handle on Soundwave, he is funky. But at least I have him to go with Ratbat to complete the Planet X molds
