Transformers: Rescue Bots Elite Heatwave

I really enjoy the Rescue Bots cartoon, but the toy line is really beginning to annoy me.  They keep releasing these random toys.  I wish they would release more of the main line of transforming toys.  This is horribly out of scale to everything else just like the Heatwave Dinobot.  It’s a pretty cool toy, but really nothing special.

In vehicle mode he has a ladder that can extend with water cannons on the end.

In robot mode he looks pretty cool.  He has an action feature, a flip out weapon, but I didn’t notice it until after I took the pictures and put the toy away.  That’s what happens when you don’t include instructions, Hasbro.

Thanks for reading!

About lmb3

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.

    Matt Trim,

    I’m not sure, I never thought of that, and I don’t have access to my Prime at the moment to try it.

    Thanks,

    michaelwpollard,

    I would love to see Hasbro do a Generations style Deluxe, or even better Voyager, line of the main characters from Rescue Bots. Even if not triple changers, something that isn’t a couple of steps and big and blocky. Problem is, they don’t realize that a lot of Transformers fans like Rescue Bots and would buy better toys of them. They can’t see beyond them being little kids toys. If Hasbro were capable of thinking outside the box we might have a lot better toys than we do.

    Thanks for the comment.

    In alt mode, Does the hole near the back fits Optimus’ trailer? That’s a play feature my son may enjoy.

  4. They need to have a Voyager-class triple-changer version of him, to match the show. They could probably swing it as a panelmaster, only maybe a bit thicker in boat mode than the show has.

    Since the original is targeted at kids and consequently the original base transformation is simple, maybe the voyager could throw in water bellows in the torso. While something more fixed would be better, they could just use a single Shockwave-like hose and a removable nozzle that just gets attached in a different spot for each mode to provide a working water cannon on a fist, truck ladder, and boat deck. Integrated plumbing in both fists, the ladder and two deck nozzles would be cool, but it wouldn’t be $25.
