:lol: :lol: that's awesome!. But if they had time to give Rotorstorm a new head, I'm sure in the 4 and 1/2 months until Hothouse is released that Hasbro can fix that.


UK retailers are stating October release date for hot house though I doubt they will get him before Pulse does.

Why not? They got Studio Series Overload, Earthrise Sky Lynx and Scorponok in before anyone else ;)

Entertainment Earth is also saying October.

Have to say, I'm very disappointed with Hot House. He was the base I was looking forward to the most (still have the one from my childhood as well as Ironworks) and they really went the lazy way with a straight repaint. HATE the baby blue, it has no place on this figure. Should be dark blue and used sparingly, but I guess that's gang molding for you. Would have preferred the blue parts be orange and then the firehouse be painted dark blue so the front would be orange like the original. Why did they ever give this mold tracks if not to make a proper tank mode? There's got to be an official tank mode in this mold that they haven't shown us yet. The black guns should have been orange, too. And then I had to go and pay and extra $8 to get it off EE since Pulse sold out so quickly just to add insult to injury. So far this is my least favorite figure in the WFC lineup.

As for pre-orders selling out, it seems like Pulse always gets more when the item comes in stock (I've been on the other side of the fence plenty of times). Even the :TAKARATOMY: Seacons were in stock (albeit limited), so there is still hope, and you can absolutely bet, if another retailer gets HotHouse before Pulse, I'll be cancelling my pre-order. In fact looking at the last 20 months since Pulse went online I've had 10 pre-orders cancelled, and only 3 actually ship...I'm surprised they haven't shut down my account.

Greetings Seibertronians! Following on from yesterday's announcement that we'd be getting new Transformers Generations Selects reveals every Tuesday, fellow Seibertron users, Immortal Starscream , Kaynowa and Thundertron, as well as site sponsor, Entertainment Earth, have let us know the identity of the first reveal.

Transformers Generations Selects Deluxe Class Hot House

The listing is also live on Entertainment Earth.

Hot House is a redeco of Transformers Earthrise Wave 2 Deluxe Class Airwave and completes the four Micromaster Bases (Along with Earthrise Deluxe Class Iron Works, Airwave and Transformers Generations Selects Greasepit). Interestingly there appears to be an upside down printing of the words 'Fire Station' on the figure. This either hints at a yet unseen layout for base mode as speculated by fellow Seibertron user, Sabrblade, or an error.

What do you think of Hot House? Will you be adding him to your collection? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

Not if you subscribed to Hasbro Pulse and have free shipping on all orders for the year ;)


So out of curiosity assuming you have Pulse Plus, how many orders under $50 have you done this year?

It is disappointing about Hothouse just being a straight up Airwave repaint. At least Greasepit had some newly molded parts to differentiate him a bit more from Ironworks. ALL of these Micromaster bases could have used unique head sculpts too. It's not surprising that we only got two unique modular base molds, though. Siege only gave us three modular Deluxe Class molds, all Weaponizers. Each got a repaint as one of the Powerdashers, so that's six releases altogether. Earthrise is following the same trend. We're getting two modular figures that act as base modes for Micromasters, and a third as another Weaponizer, Fasttrack, as a companion accessory for Titan Class Scorponok. Ironworks has been repainted into Greasepit. Airwave has been repainted into Hothouse. And we know that Fasttrack will be repainted into Black Roritchi, the repaint of Fasttrack that came with the Japan-only Black Zarak, a retool/repaint of Scorponok from the Super God Masterforce portion of G1. That gives us six total modular Deluxe class figures again, with three unique molds, each one repainted exactly once.

Well I can't say I'm disappointed because I wasn't looking forward to Hot House in the first place. I just don't care that much about the micromaster bases (I'm thinking about maybe getting Ironworks but none of the other guys). Still looking forward to the other reveals though. Hopefully the leaks are true and they include Bug Bite, Roritchi, and G2 Megatron. I'm only looking forward to the first two if that is the case, I've never really been into the G2 Megs look.

Got my pre-order in, excited to get all 4 bases. wish they had retooled some parts though, like they did with Greasepit.

This guy has a straight up Gundam head. Loving these colors better than any of the other versions of this mold for sure!

Huzzah! Another figure that, if we're even lucky, will make it to Australia in limited numbers and be priced more than regular release figures of the same size.

This is a wonderful time to be a collector from outside the US! Image

Well I am not one to be critical usually, BUT....

Should be called "Hot Mess." While I have nothing against "colorful" transformers, this looks like something my younger brother and I would've made out of his Basic Lego set when we were 7-10 years old. To me being colorful is ok as long as as they coordinate... This just looks like a hodge podge of colors thrown together, which makes the alt modes even more problematic.

Some people may like it, but for me it's an easy pass.

Blame the late 1980's early 1990's for that. Those were my teen years and EVERYONE wore bright fluo colors like these. Transformers didn't escape the trend.

Then it's been worth it for you. This would have been the only one for me, so in that case it wouldn't be worth it for me.

Exactly. The original (pictured below) looked like that as well. I personally have no interest in this, But am happy for those that do. Its nice to see obscure characters that only have one toy get remade and modernized. :D

What??? It's been a long week at work so I haven't been paying much attention but when was this revealed??? I freaking want this! I'm a sucker for funky-colored camo, and G2 Megs is some of the funkiest.

As far as I'm aware it leaked today wth a YouTube video. Unfortunately the video was privated before I could actually watch it otherwise I'd link it

Oooohhhh, interesting. Maybe this will be next week's Transformer Tuesdays reveal from Entertainment Earth???

Yeesh. I'll give it this, it looks a little better than I expected. But personally I just don't like how G2 Megs looks (I'm not sure yet if I just don't like the look of camo or if its just garish camo like this). I was pretty sure this wasn't going to get me to buy earthrise Megatron, but at least now I know it for sure. Happy for anyone who likes this though.

Seriously digging that G2 Megs. The head is perfect as well as the deco. Let's hope it's not a Pulse exclusive.
