For those following the news the past week or so, it was hinted that the next Transformers Collectors' Club Membership figure would be Dion. No, not Celine Dion, we're talking about a redo of Generation One Dion, who was the best friend of Orion Pax. The clock is reminded, as we get a figure of Dion when he was in the Elite Guard, which fits with the 2009 Botcon Exclusives.

Dion is a repaint of Universe Hot Shot, in a vibrant orange and blue colour scheme. Take a look at Dion below!

That's too bad that this is the exclusive figure. The universe Hotshot mold is crap, so I'm guessing this pukey repaint is crap as well. Cybertron Hotshot is a great mold. They should have used that.

I really dont mind it. Considering what they had to work with in terms of character designs on Dion, i certainly couldn't have done any better. And honestly, the Universe Hotshot mold does have a likeness to him. Yes a better mold and character could have been selected, but for what it is, its not too bad.

the neon is repulsive tho...

I'm just not enthused by this repaint nor with his tie-in-ness to a BotCon set. Nice semi-obscure character choice mind you. I'm likely to let my membership lapse. It is expensive and I'd likely just wind up leaving Dion in storage or selling him or something.

I actually like this figure quite a bit, nice character choice and a much better Dion homage than the Wheelie repaint that came with Orion Pax.

I'm warming up to it, I just wish it was the Henkei version. Dion needs some weaponry. Also, are we even going to get a Minicon?

Where's my Jolt repaint as... any helicopter character... let's say Blazemaster, since that's a name they have in use.

That sure is alot of paint apps for the free figure.

I like it, But I wish it was using the Henkei version so the guns were included.

I'm actually a bit surprised at all the hate for this. I actually think it's quite a brilliant repaint. I like it a lot.

Wooooooow...
this is really bad.


eh dion needed an homage of some sort. dion wasnt really a sportscar from what i remembered, and the Cybertron HotShot wouldnt work. This needs to grow on me. The Universe Hot shot i know had breakable plastic windows and such

anybody want an improved version of Wheelie?

The car mode design would look really nice.., in some other colours.

Awesome. I love this figure from concept up. Dion? Awesome. Rebuilt Dion? Awesomer. Elite Guard rebuilt Dion? Awesomest. Elite Guard rebuilt Dion Hot Shot repaint? Man, I'd be willing to pay for that on top of my Club membership! He, Elita-1, and Alpha Trion are getting a special grouping in my collection.
