Transformers: Rescue Bots Amazon.com Exclusive Heatwave

You may remember from a few months back that Amazon.com released a repaint and remold of Rescue Bots Hoist as Optimus Prime.  This was an odd exclusive that came out of nowhere.  It wasn’t the last one.  Now Hoist’s wave-mate Medix has been repainted and remolded into Heatwave.  Read my review of Medix here.

I’m not crazy about the yellow.  They should have just done him in red.  Heatwave’s fire hat head looks odd as the vehicle grill.

Overall: It came to about $21 with shipping I think, so it’s not super expensive, but unless you’re a completist, you can skip this one.  The Optimus Prime was much better.

Thanks for reading!

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.
