Our next new Transformers toy gallery for your enjoyment is this gallery of the Transformers the Ride exclusive release, Evac
! Only available from Universal Studios, Evac is the star of Transformers the Ride, a new member of the Autobot team who takes visitors to the park on a journey that's more than meets the eye!
The Evac toy is a rather cool little exclusive. He's a complete new mold based on the character from the ride, transforming from a high-tech personnel carrier / the car from the ride into a movieverse styled robot mode. He fits right in with the movie toys
too, particularly with contemporary releases from Dark of the Moon. He's got decent amounts of poseability in the shoulders, elbows, hips and knees with a little side-swivel in the ankles to allow for wider poses. On the vehicle mode, the sides of the vehicle lift-up
, gullwing style, just like the car on the ride. There's no waist swivel in robot mode though, and no weapon or accessory either, though there are some 3mm clip points on the toy and 5mm peg holes in the hands as well.
All in all, Evac's a cool little toy. He's got a great look and fits in well with the movie series cast. Because he's a theme park exclusive, he commands a bit of a markup on the secondary market and your mileage may vary on whether that is worth it. Certainly at original retail if you are a movie series fan, this one is a good addition to your Autobot side.
