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.
Transformers Rescue Bots Energize Blades
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.
Transformers Rescue Bots Energize Boulder
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!
