Hot Spot's the leader of the Protectobots. He is also a PITA to paint. There are so many rubbing issues on this toy, it's best left alone, but no - I had to make it happen. Thanks to lots of sanding and heavy duty primer, I got it complete. Again, all enamels. mmm, I love the smell.

I made some small mods to the head, replaced the hands and gave him a new chest which clips on with some clips and magnets. I also went to town with the custom decals.

Enjoy...

Wow.... beautiful paintwork, even by your lofty standards. I like the way you've stayed faithful to the original scheme but made it a bit less clinical and more in keeping with the lunatic Hot Spot was meant to be - he looks like he's ready for a fight.

I'd love to see him in the super robot form. The normal looks great, though.

Does the chest use rare earth magnets?
