Well, I like the license plate tribute - to one of the best Marvel (US) covers - and the head sculpt, but not sure about much else on Ratchet. May just end up seeing if poor Ages 3 and Up still has the Ratchet/Ironhide re-issue pair available in their going-out-of-business sale....

wHaT?

I'm really not interested in hot shot as a toy or charachter, so the homage to the fandom almost entirely passes me by. but it kinda made me chuckle. sort of. ish.

Well, well, well. Guess it was inevitable. So far i'm still on the fence on this one.

I guess I know who was responsible for Hot Shot's deco then.

Huh?

The HK-TF gallery above (mirrored at TFW) and Hasbro stock photos don't show any weapons, yet the eHobby pictures of the Henkei version clearly show two missile launchers.

I guess the people with the Hasbro version forgot to steal the guns.

TFW has posted the instruction sheet for Universe Hotshot, and it so totally does not come with the guns like the Henkei version does. LAME.

His face has got me wondering why so serious? Yeah, bad joke, but still, he could have used even a slight smile.

At least you aren't going "WHY MY SHOULDERS HURT". That joke got old real fast about a month ago.

I found hot shot like last thursday at my local TRU. He is a pretty good figure. I still havent seen rachet yet, but I will get him when I see him.

Naww, that aint a pistol handle, its just where his engine block splits in half and sets on the inside of his legs. He was suppose to have some arm cannons that attach to his forearms. If you look at his arms, he has a whole in each side where the cannons where suppose to go, but as everyone knows they dont come with the figure. But I fixed this issue by modifying some of univese tankor/octane guns and turned them into arm cannons for hot shot. And I must say, him having those arm cannons make him look more beastly then having a visor and a minicon that wont stand up to save his own life.
