Transformers Rescue Bots Flip Racers Chomp and Chase Raceway

Chomp and Chase Raceway

To call this a “raceway” is a bit of a misnomer. There is only one track, so there is no way to actually “race”. The launcher is not a spring-loaded mechanism, which is the real failure of this toy. The first time I slammed my hand down on it to send the car up the track, the car ended up across the room. Okay, it’s meant for a five-year-old, not a forty-one-year old, but I had a hell of a time hitting it just hard enough to send it around the track without sending it flying. This should have had a spring loaded mechanism. Every so many times around the track, Optimus Primal chomps down and sends the bot into the jail. You can place another car in the gray hinged piece at the top of the track to send down the track, but all that will do is send two cars down the track back into the launcher. Nothing about this toy makes a lot of sense, but I’m sure kids will have fun with it.

Morbot

Morbot looks great in black and translucent red. I hope we get a show colored version in a later wave.

Overall: I like the Morbot. Can’t say much for the track.

Thanks for reading!
