Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy Wave 2 (Hoist)
Hoist looks very much like an upsized version of one of the Rescan Series Hoists. He does have a cool new feature, a hook that extends from under his front bumper, which can be snapped back in be pressing his bumper. It’s supposed to be a winch, but it snaps in so fast, it’s not terribly useful as a winch. It can also be deployed when in robot mode.
Overall: Hoist is pretty cool. It seems like Hasbro is just going to keep cranking out random versions of the RBA characters in the Rescan Series, and make this the main line. Wedge is upcoming. That leaves only Hot Shot without a toy in this scale, and I assume we’re going to get three of them, one of each of his alt modes. Seems odd they left Hot Shot until last. I also wonder if we will get the original Rescue Bots characters in this scale.
Thanks for reading!
