TFW Transformers the Ride Evac (Universal Studios Exclusive) Gallery

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.

This guy really needs a weapon accessory. And whatever happened to the mass-market release of him in a different color? Weren't we supposed to get in in red with some flame or tribal design tampos?

Wow this took a while. I've had mine since August, though my dogs recently chewed him to bits...
BIGGUY007
GOD!! I WISH I HAD THAT!! There is no WAY I can afford a trip to California to get that!! I wish I could buy that and have it shipped to me!!

That's why I'd like to say I keep the collection away from the cat, though it's not easy in practise. Can't stay mad at them though
iconbot
I got one when I went to L.A. It's rather hideous to be honest.
moreprimeland
Thanks SF!! Enjoyed the pics! Nice job.!!

Can't say I like his robot mode that well...but the alt mode is pretty good. Overall a fair looking Autobot, maybe one day I'll add him to my collection.
Noideaforaname
He'd be a neat memento for the ride, but other than that, meh.
Yaujta
Alt mode is great, bot mode is really bad. The backpack makes FE Vehicon look sleek.
Cyberverse did it better.
Burnout
I really want oen fo these in a bad way. Love the bot and alt modes.
Galvatron Rage
Yeah, the robot mode is a little blah with that backpack/kibble, but I think that alt mode is kick - f**king - ass!

I already really liked the little Cyberverse version, and this bigger version is just as cool. A little custom paint to that front end, headlights especially, would made him even better!
konrathink
Ahhh, Dark of the Moon quality. Thin legs n arms. Big backpack. Be best to just melt him down now and reuse the plastic.
PcPrime23
Looks like a good figure. Can't wait for the ride to be finished in Orlando, so I can pick Evac up.
barrelks
It is a decent little figure, and I picked it up on a whim, but It just doesn't fit anywhere in my collection so I am hauking mine.
RedAlert Rescue
I'd like him as I think he complement the Wreckers well.

But not found one at a good price yet - he's not expensive but many of the people who have him tend to charge a lot to post him. and I've yet to find anyone selling him who I can multi-buy from.

I wonder if he'd suit Dragstrip's swords or other HA clip weapons ?
Zer0Prime
I never understood the want for Evac. He's pretty ugly IMO
Frognal
A HA version of him would've kicked ass.

Tfwiki says the two guns on his torso can be removed and held in his hands as pistols. Anyone try this yet?

Very true. My cats are pretty harmless to my collection, other than knocking them over. But the dogs...They eat everything in sight! D:

It works, but it's really loose and looks really stupid imo.
NEST SOLDIER
I really like the figure, and I'm glad that his alt mode is a closed cockpit design, versus the open top design from the ride.
PlanckEpoch
I **LOVE** this guy. I'm okay with the backpack when I realize it's supposed to be a big jetpack of sorts...and although normally I'm against huge backpacks...it doesn't bother me much afterall!

I'm glad I was able to get one of these with help from a local.

Don't thank me, give the love to Russian fan! These are their pictures - I'm just doing the writeup to let you all know we've added them to the site

This does make me wonder what one has to do to have his pictures of a toy used in a TFW Gallery, might try doing one of these as a skill test should there be an open slot.

In my mind, this toy could almost sit in a WFC/FOC collection as one of the generic trucks. The only thing that really kills it are the Bayverse face and the Earth tires. I wonder what this would look like next to some WFC stuff.

Well, we're always looking for some help to fill in the blanks in the galleries, if you would like to check out the stickied thread in the Toy Discussion section or drop SydneyY a PM to find out more.

When the doors are open on vehicle mode it reminds me of M.A.S.K. and the awesome theme song from Robot Chicken!

Thank you, Sol!
Great photo from your side too! I'm very pleasanted, that they make gallery yet more beautiful!
When I started to make this gallery, I thought too (like many others here) that Evac is quite unexpressive. But it was misleading! A few days later I recognized, that he is a great photomodel and toy, he more than deserves his place in my humble collection

Look on eBay, there are a bunch on there. About $35 each.
bellpeppers
Well, huh! I've had 3 of these in my garage and all this time I could have made a gallery of him for TFW. Shame on me.

Mine's gonna go on sale tho- have to pay off credit cards!
G1Prowl
Russianfan or bellpeppers, can you post pics of this guy next to WFC/FOC bots?

Pretty much my thoughts on Evac.

Personally I'll stick helicopter Evac if you so mind Hasbro.
Galaxy Convoy
Still a nice looking fig, and this coming from a movie toy hater. Wouldn't mind having one myself.

I still wish Reprolabels or somebody would make decals of Evac's green tampo'd apps for Cyberverse Evac. It would really make the fig pop.
sh002
I wonder if he'd make a good chug Beachcomber.
bellpeppers
I personall don't think so.
EmperorDinobot
Hey if anyone can get me one, pm me immediately.

Given how vague the community as a whole seems to treat the "classics" theme, I'd say damn near ANYTHING that's blue and has wheels makes a good CHUG Beachcomber to someone.

Me personally, I'm thinking he's too movieverse to fit in with WFC/FOC, let alone CHUG. May have to do the Bionicle test.
TylerMirage
Not too fond of the robot mode, but that alt mode is sweet!

Agreed.
Attobot2006
why do movieverse bots faces always have to look so disfigured and gnarled up? otherwise, not too bad looking body I guess.
bellpeppers
Just put mine up for sale for those who want one.
