Many Transformers fans have been anticipating the announcement of a Hot Shot retool/redeco of Transformers Generations - War for Cybertron: Siege Deluxe Class Hound, ever since Hound's box art was revealed, depicting the G1 Autobot with a very non-G1 head sculpt, one that very closely matched that of Transformers: Cybertron "Cybertron Defense" Hot Shot. Well, the wait is over! This retool/redeco has apparently become a reality! Killtok of reddit apparently got the hookup from a friend in Asia. Thank you to Puhonix, Mega.Prime123, and Sabrblade of the Seibertron.com forums for bring this reveal to our attention! The reddit user doesn't have any other information on this Transformers Siege Hot Shot figure at this time, other than alleging that it is an "official Hasbro product." We will have to wait and see if Hasbro and/or Takara Tomy make an official announcement in the near future, now that the proverbial cat is out of the bag. For now, enjoy the pictures "Killtok" has posted to reddit and his imgur account below, which include several shots of "Cybertron Defense" Hot Shot in robot mode and alt mode, along with a robot mode side-by-side comparison with War for Cybertron: Siege Deluxe Class Hound.

I wil be painting that roofline... Black was my first instinct but a red wouldn’t be bad. But otherwise I am glad to see this becoming a thing officially.

I’m not convinced on this Cell Shading, that even though it looks great in staged pictures that its going to look as good, in hand, in person, in many different poses. I fear that this is one of those like a 3D Art drawing that when you move away it loses the effect.

But for those of you waiting for this, I hope I am very wrong

Would've been nice to see some new weapons as well. This is one time I will be getting the eventual weapon upgrade set. It looks good as CD Hot Shot even without the dual guns/missile pods though.

That’s a pretty jaAmmin’ figure.

You know, I don't think I'm really happy with these "cel-shaded" versions of Siege Optimus Prime and Megatron. They look more like they've got weird two-tone camouflage than dynamic lighting and shadowing. I might still get these either to keep in package or display separately, but they're almost certainly NOT going to replace the regular Wave 1 versions of Optimus Prime and Megatron with the battle damage in my main Transformers display shelves. I just want cartoon accurate paint apps without the battle damage, Hasbro!

Cybertron defense hotshot was one of the best figures in the Cybertron line. Also it's now obvious the rifle is done up to look like one of the shoulder canons.

Cybertron Defence Hot Shot wears that mold so well, forgot he was just a redeco with a new head at first :lol:

I feel the opposite. I think that cell shaded look is the ONLY reason I'd buy those figures. If all Siege figures were painted like that I might like more of the line (so wish Springer had that style). It looks so much like the graphic style of Transformers: Devastation which is easily the best G1 has ever looked in my opinion. They just look really cool even though I don't care for the molds themselves.


As for Hot Shot. That looks bloody awful. Fine if it was an amateurs repaint of Hound using a head from a previous Hot Shot figure but as an official product Hasbro want money for? Come on.... The cybertron toy had a nice look to it in both modes. This is just boring blocky Hound in funkier colours.

Passing on hotshot, another case of a figure already existing that is better than the siege one.

Cellshaded megatron looks better than randomly applied dirt on chest standard version. It would have been interesting if Sieges thing was all figures cellshaded instead of the battledamage but until seeing megs and optimus in hand (which means I'll have to order them) if the cell shading works or not.

Kind of weird but cool for ID to plug a rival toystore and still no news on who has soundblaster in the UK as yet.

I actually like that Hot Shot is no longer "proto Sports Car Bumblebee", increases the chances of being able to see him again some day in media without him being more of a Bumblebee clone, same with adapting shades of blue as his primary color.


I mean were not going to get reissues of the original toys which don't really fit with the engineering in this day and age so homages like this is the next best thing.

I also really like repaints and remolds these days, just makes sense since their robots why would every single person have their own 100 percent unique look? Body templates and such is fascinating to me because of the writing possibilities that can come up with it.

I have mixed feelings about this hot shot. At one side, i think this mold does work, and this does look badass. But at the same time, he doesn't feel as battle ready and as armed as the original version.

Haven’t been called “Mega.Prime123” in a long time. Guess I ought to update my email handle. :lol:

I like the mold, I like the character. I don’t like this. This feels forced, like Armada Megatron from Combiner Wars Megatron.

I feel the same. There was a discussion a little while ago about good redecos vs redecos done just for the sake and this falls into that category. Still, from the look of people who were excited by digibashes, I guess some are happy its coming out.

I am wondering now if it will be released alone or with the other two power dashers.

I'll definitely pick up Hotshot, even if Cybertron and all that were "after" my time.

I like the new Cybertron defense hotshot, in WFC, but why not include more weapons? He was one of the best figures in the Cybertron line...and this means we will get more Cybertron line figures into the future of this line too?

Hot Shot looks like a good use of the mold, and I prefer it over the look of Hound, so he'll be my first foray into this mold.

Man, Hot Shot was totally a Hot Rod clone, not Bumblebee. Just look at his Armada Powerlinx redeco and the design of his first Cybertron form. His personality was lifted from Hot Rod (and Cheetor) too. ;)
