Blog #383: Toy Reviews: Transformers Rescue Bots Wave 6 Energize Series Blades & Boulder

The second wave of Transformers Rescue Bots Energize toys are out.  Like the Wave 5 (which included Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Chase, and Heatwave) Wave 6 consists of Energize versions of Blades and Boulder.  I never reviewed the original versions, so I’ll talk about both.

Blades is my favorite Rescue Bots toy.  He has a really great helicopter mode.  I like his robot mode too, but not as much as his vehicle mode.  The Energize version has additional translucent blue parts that the original didn’t.  He also has a weapon of sorts.  In vehicle mode it is a hook, but it does not attach in any useful way.  It sticks out in front of the vehicle rather than hanging down.  The helicopter also can’t rest properly on a surface with the hook attached.  In robot mode, I’m not really not sure what he is supposed to do with it.

Boulder is not a bad toy, but his vehicle mode just looks really odd with the enormous scoop on the front and a small cab.  I do really like his robot mode though.  His hands and the inside of his treads have been made translucent for this version, and I think it looks pretty good.  His drill accessory isn’t bad, but I wish they had made it mountable up on top of his scoop.

Thanks for reading!
