    For transformation pull down dinosaur legs and done, this toy does have a issue with the legs sprining back.

    I have the monster truck Optimus, boat Heatwave and motorcycle Bumblebee which are smaller but I was hoping the dino ones would be bigger. :(

    I thought this originally too... but after looking it over I realized how well a brachio works. The long neck works like a ladder as well as giving the hose on his head a better reach (it's in the artwork). As much as Heatwave wants to fight, rescuing people is still first in his book.

    Pretty please with sugar lumps on can I have a back of card shot please.

    There is a much larger Heatwave Dinosaur but it's a non-transforming one stuck in dinomode it was on display at Toyfair.

    The closest thing to what many people might have wanted is the midscale Bumblebee Raptor and Optimus T-Rex. There is also a massive Optimus that is non-transforming and is stuck in robot mode - that seats 3 in his chest.

    I would have much preferred the dinosaurs were larger though.

    I am slightly amuses me that the bump on the dinosaurs head is represented by Heatwave's fireman's hat.

    I like them - but I will like them more on sale price and with some ample additional paint added to them.

    Maybe they thought that the series already had a TRex for a character, they thought HW should be a different dino......

    .... still for me, I'm not too thrilled with the Beast Wars angle for the bots. But the little kiddies might like them, they're usually around RB target age when they love Dinos!!!!

    Love Dinosaurs love Rescue Bots, bigger would be nice but the price is good and you can fit it on a shelf even if I never transformed it would look nice in dino mode.

    The legs on my kid's heat wave dinosaur won't stay down when he's in robot mode. Is it supposed to be that way or did I get one that is broken?

    I've heard a few others including our own Razorwire mention there's an issue, so I think they are all like that.

    My son's ended up like that as well. I couldn't figure out what happened. Really disappointed. I hope someone comes up with a fix, if it's a constant problem.

    I've got two of them that did that too. Bummed, haven't been able to figure out a fix either. Even tried to take it apart, but removing the two screws didn't do anything for me. Any of you have luck? My kid loved moving the dino head with the button. :(
