So I was excited that Hasbro was making little dudes of all of the Rescue Bots human partners. Well, they tell us they’re gonna make Dani Burns later (we’d better), but we’re for sure getting the dudes! And they all come with a robot in a two-pack. Unlike the toys which predated the television show, these nontransformable robot figures are based on the cartoon designs which were reworked from the toys. So if you looked at Normal Transformable Chase and thought, man, he looks way too happy to be Chase, well, here’s your guy. Your… much smaller guy. (He’s a few inches tall instead of several.) ((I don’t own a ruler.))
The robot guys have way more articulation than I was expecting. Their heads rotate, which I did expect, but they also have universal-joint shoulders and a rotating wrist and arm weapon. They also have “sitting” articulation at the waist, but both legs move at the same time. They’re the same piece, just run through the pelvis.
The humans don’t have any articulation at all. Bummer.
They’re also all the same size and shape, so they’re not totally on-model. It’s kind of like Andrew Wildman drew them.
