Transformers Rescue Bots Flip Racers Optimus Prime Race Track Trailer with Blurr and Bumblebee

Race Track Trailer

Optimus Prime’s trailer unfolds into a short race track with a built in launcher. You stand up two Flip Racers as shown and then push down on the red post to set the mechanism. You then push down on the gray bar it tilts them forward and trips the launchers as they transform into vehicle mode. The track is only a couple of feet long and then they just go across the ground. Pretty cool.

Blurr

Blurr is cast in Translucent plastic. He looks pretty good. Like all the other Flip Racers, he doesn’t have his Autobot symbol painted. He would look much better if it were painted.

Bumblebee

Bumblebee is, I guess, a Formula One race car. Not my favorite Flip Racer. His vehicle mode looks off.

Optimus Prime

Optimus Prime is enormous in comparison to the actual Flip Racers. He’s not bad looking. I rather like him in vehicle mode with the trailer.

Overall: Not a bad toy. A word of advice if you want to buy one of these. It’s $65 at Toys R Us, and $60 at Target. Walmart has it for $50, so definitely go to Walmart for it.

Thanks for reading!
