Bot Shots 3-Packs 2013 Wave 2 (Optimus Prime, Cindersaur, Jazz, Scourge, Kup, Blitzwing)

Before I get to the specifics, you can read my thoughts on the Bot Shots concept here, the online video game here, and the new Flip Shot, Spin Shot, and Jump Shot designs for 2013 here.

Optimus Prime: A repaint of the single pack Jump Shot Optimus Prime, I don’t like the paint job as much as the single pack version.  That one has chrome parts which really looks nice.  Still, it’s not bad looking.  I’m still trying to get a Jump Shot to land on it’s feet.

Cindersaur: I believe this is the first use of this mold.  It’s decent, but again it’s a Jump Shot, so it doesn’t land on it’s feet.  I like the coloring.

Jazz: Super Bot Jazz is a repaint of the original design (now referred to as Blitz Bots) Jazz.  He’s okay, but I’d have liked to see a translucent color rather than clear.  Not bad though.

Scourge: Scourge is a reverse color (more or less) repaint of the single pack Scourge.  The newer Spin Shots seem to be doing a better job of staying in vehicle mode.  The first ones were really hard to make stay transformed.

Kup: He’s repainted from Spin Shot Ironhide.  Not bad.  I can’t tell from the picture if he has a new head, but I suspect he’s a straight repaint.

Blitzwing: He’s a translucent purple repaint of Blitz Bot Brawl.  I wish he were a few shades lighter in color.

Thanks for reading!
