Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy Wave 3 (Wedge)


It’s unfortunate that Hasbro didn’t put a little more work into painting this toy. The mold is a pretty decent representation of Wedge, but he needed way more paint apps. Compare him to the animation. He needed the sides and fins on his head painted black. The molding is there, it’s just not painted. It’s unfortunate, because I really like the mold, the paintjob is just completely inadequate. He looks pretty great in vehicle mold. I could see a remold and repaint on this toy as Boulder down the road.

Overall: This could have been a great toy, but Hasbro phoned it in, and it’s just average.

Thanks for reading!

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
