ATTACKTIX CLASS: Warrior
TRANSFORMERS CLASS: Autobot
POINT VALUE: 40
BASE SPEED: 4
SPECIAL POWER: Rally (Autobot)
ATTACK TYPE: Shooter (Energy Blast)
The Warrior Class will have little use in a Transformers only battle, and using Hot Shot could prove more deadly when squared off again General Grievous. However, Hot Shot will be the first figure reviewed to have the new Energy Blast. Sister to the Star Wars Force Blast, the completely round Energy Blast will pack quite a punch. Hot Shot is the only small based figure to equip such a big weapon, it will be interesting to see how he can be used in battle. Rallying any Autobot will be useful for an all "Good Guy" team, so he will surely see some time on the battlefield.

What's up with "Base Speed". Starting with these new sets, Attacktix figures have a new movement tracker. Instead of a printed number on the base, the figure speed is shown in the top window. Instead of just flipping from red to black, the window now shows the figures speed alternating between red and white text. All figures will have a base speed in line with previous figures, but speed dials can have "sweet spots" with an extra 'Tix of speed, or "weak spots" with a 'Tix less of speed.
