Toy Review: When I first took this toy out of his packaging, I couldn't help but think how much he felt like a toddler toy to me. The bright yellow and red colors, the relatively simple transformation, and the "stuck in place" head with a happy face on it were the cause. I've mostly gotten over this, though. After playing with him, I've found that I really like how his main weapon is hidden in his rear axle, flipping up and around to shoot a missile right out of the center of the wheels, which can still spin freely. His Minicon, Jolt, is a pretty neat little helicoptor as well, with a reasonably complex transformation for his size. I like how in car mode, Hot Shot's front bumper opens up when you insert the engine block accessory to reveal serrated claw-like things. These serve as his feet in robot mode, and fortunately can be merely pulled out, not requiring the use of the engine block to unlock them. His missile weapon does require a Minicon to release and activate, which kind of sucks given where the minicon has to be (hanging off his butt ;-). Still, I wish he had more details, especially with some other colors and accents. Some flame or pinstriping would be nice. Overall a good toy, though. Both my sons have their own.

Comments: Hotshot kind of reminds me of a bananna popsicle but it's a cool looking toy nonetheless.

Comments: this is by far the best armada figure so far because of his cool appearance and good articulation,although i don't really like the panels you flip on his hands

Comments: Hot Shot and Jolt are a very nice introduction into the world of Transformers Armada. There arenít a lot of gimmicks, but enough to keep you busy for a while. The only thing that some may not like is the color scheme. I think it suits the toy and character well, however.
