Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy Wave 4 (Hot Shot)

Hot Shot

I’m sure this is only the first of at least three Hot Shots at this scale. Probably more given the trailer (spoiler alert) for season two indicates Hot Shot is getting even more vehicle modes. It would have been nice if they had done one of his other modes first, as this is the third time we’ve gotten Hot Shot as an ATV with basically the same transformation. Previous versions of Hot Shot ATV were in the Rescue Bots 4-Pack and the larger Electronic Hot Shot. Both have basically the same design. They were not the same mold in a different size, but they all transformed basically the same way, and all have his arms attached at his waist which looks stupid. This one does add an action feature of sorts. He has a cannon that flips down from his arm and a blast pops out the end.

Overall: Hot Shot is fine. If you have the electronic Hot Shot, unless you really want his ATV mode at this scale, you can probably skip this one.

Thanks for reading!
