Evac just flew in from BBTS yesterday, and he is indeed awesome. Vehicle Mode: Evac's alt mode is some kind of Navy or Coast Guard rescue helicopter, but it's hands down the best helicopter Transformer ever. There's a hook on the right side that can extend and then retract at the touch of a button. A button on the left side makes the rotors spin. The retractable landing gear is a definite plus. Evac comes with the Earth planet force key thingy, and it unlocks 2 missle launchers near the top of the vehicle mode that swing around and face forward. Transformation to robot mode isn't that complex, but it's fun to do. I guess I'd relate it to Mudflap's transformation. Not that hard, but a lot of fun and easy enough you won't get frustrated(like some Alternators). Robot Mode: As if the vehicle mode wasn't awesome enough, the robot mode trumps it. The cockpit area become his legs and feet, the arms each carry a weapon(his right arm as the hook and his left has the rotor blades), the missile launchers become a backpack, and the tail splits in half and then folds flat against the body. Another neat feature is that you can leave the tail halves out like big massive shoulder pads, or they can be folded down so they're out of the way. They used blue translucent plastic for Evac's eyes and they are light piped, which gives off an awesome effect when you shine a light behind him. All features from vehicle mode work in robot mode. This includes the hook/winch on his right arm, the spinning rotor blades on his left, and the missile launchers that become his backpack. One word of caution: if you're going to fold the tail halves down like it shows in the instructions, be careful. It takes a little force, but it works. Took me a little bit to figure that out because a) I saw the pictures and knew it could be done, and b) they rotate kinda hard, so I thought I was going to break them, but I didn't. One last thing I have to mention: There were no electronics whatsoever. And you know what? As much as I hated it on Mudflap, I'm starting to dig that they've left them out(or never had any, whichever). Since there's no electronics, there's no need for a sound box, therefore the toy doesn't have to compensate it's design to include said sound box. What you get is an awesome figure that has loads of articulation, neat features, and is still damn fun to play with. If Evac and Mudflap are a sign of things to come, then I couldn't be happier. I know Crumplezone and Vector Prime came with electronics and they were alright, but Mudflap and Evac are way better than either of them. So hopefully from now on they can leave out the electronics and give us awesome figures that are on this level. Obviously, I couldn't recommend Evac any more. He's truly a fun toy, amazing vehicle mode, awesome robot mode, and very cool features. Pick this one up if you see him. PS: I already had an idea for a repaint. Does anyone remember the GIJoe RAH Medic from the '86 line named Lifeline? Wouldn't it be cool to repaint Evac that blaze orange and give him white detailing and call him Lifeline? Just a thought I had.
