Hi there. I've been collecting these for uh... my son, since he was way little. So, I had to jump at the chance to pick up the latest offerings for him. From my 3 year old sons perspective - He likes the bigger, rescue vehicles better. He plays with the original eight more than these three Rescan releases. Always asking me to come "Zoom" them with him. Now, on to my thoughts: Heatwave here is a smaller Rescue Bot release at the same price point as the previous larger Rescue Bots. He has less paint apps than his predecessor. However, he does have a more Toon-accurate head. Transformation is similar to the first "Generation" of Rescue Bots. Push the sirens on the police boat and his legs will separate, the arms will push out and the front of the boat will tip back to reveal the robot head. I fully expected these to be the same size as the previous ones, so I was a little taken back when I picked them up in store. Oh, one more thing, the little turrets in boat mode can swivel. That's about it for articulation Should you pick this guy up? If you have a little one at home, sure! He's very easy to transform. For an adult collector? Only if you're a completionist or adult fan of the show/line in general.
