Hot Shot Hovercraft
Hot Shot’s hovercraft mode looks pretty good, though he could have used some more paint apps. His robot mode isn’t bad, but I wish his arms weren’t the sides of the hovercraft. He just doesn’t look right with the black arms. The outer part needs to be black since it’s part of the hovercraft skirt, but his arms are molded inside and could have easily been painted, or probably more likely, been cast in red plastic and the skirt be painted black. Such a small thing would have made him look much better.
This is the second Rescue Bots Academy Medix figure we’ve got. His first was in that odd wave of larger sized toys along with Whirl. This is a repaint of the 2016 Rescan Series Medix with a new head. It’s fine, but in the cartoon, Medix is a car, and we already got that in a larger scale for some reason.
Overall: Hot Shot is a good toy. Medix is fine, but Hasbro never seems to know what they are doing with the Rescue Bots line. I would have rather had a new mold Medix in the Rescan Series than the random larger one we got.
