Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy Wave 1 (Medix & Whirl)
I’m not sure what to call these. They are a new size class of toy, though it has no name, thanks Hasbro. Many Rescue Bots Academy toys are also appearing in the original Rescue Bots Rescan Series line, though with Rescue Bots Academy package designs. Those toys are smaller and completely out of scale with these two. It remains to be seen if these are just a whole new price point, or if we will only get out of scale versions of these toys. Given Hasbro’s haphazard approach to the Rescue Bots line in the past, your guess is as good as mine.
Medix is extremely average. Vehicle mode looks fine, but his robot mode could have used a few more paint apps on his legs. Head sculpt is fine. He’s just…okay.
Whirl on the other hand is pretty awesome. I just wish the nose of the helicopter folded down on her back. That would make her more animation accurate. She looks great though. I love her police helicopter mode. Really great design.
Overall: Medix is fine, but Whirl is awesome.
Thanks for reading!
