Hot Head is the Giant that belongs to the powerful fire element and is immediately a lot of fun to play with. The four available giants at this time are Crusher, Swarm, Tree Rex(comes with the game), and Bouncer. Hot Head begins with shooting a burst of flames out of his hands on his enemies. If you press and hold this attack the flames shoot longer, but slow him down a little more too. Eventually he can shoot oil blobs on his opponents and set them on fire (this combo inflicts a lot of damage to your enemies). His last attack is a rain shower of fire falling from the sky which gives a broad range of damage. If you prefer to enhance his wide ranged attack pick "Oil Baron" for his fire shower. It's a weak attack in the beginning that becomes very powerful over a wide range if you choose this path. The other path turns him into a strong "Burninator" which increases the strength of his hands shooting fire and the oil blobs eventually turn into "oil blob monsters" that help attack his foes. Setting these "oily monsters" on fire will help increase their critical hit abilities. After acquiring his soul gem, he turns into a fire blazing motorcycle, which increases his speed and makes it harder for his enemies to attack him.
Hot Head and most of the Giants are relatively slow. They all begin with a speed of 20, except for Bouncer and Ninjini who begin with a speed of 60.Read more ›
As for the product itself, I got lucky. I got it for retail cost and it is what my little girl wanted. I can't wait to play Skylanders with her and I'll do a more in depth review after Christmas!
Swarm out of the box at low levels was a much better giant for fighting than this one was. The only frustrating thing here was "aiming" the flame throwing hand. And when things get close in, it's tougher to fight them.
But once I leveled a bit and upgraded, he's quite a good fighter, with good close combat skills and a nice area "rain of fire" attack as well.
Very well built as they all are, and a great addition to the collection for anyone who loves the game, young or old...
His full upgrades are fun, too.
