I'm writing this for multiple reasons, the first of which is to address some peoples complaints about the price. I hope I either save someone some effort/heartache or explain why some of these Rescue Bots are as pricey as they are.

This run, the basic model of Rescue Bots, is no longer on store shelves. The new "Rescue Bots Energize!" is replacing them. I noticed this problem about a month ago, as I was trying to complete my sons set (More on that soon), and where once I could very easily find Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and even the more rare Hoist in our local Walmart, this is no longer the case. During the holiday season, I traveled from Northeastern Kansas, to southern Illinois, into Kentucky and Indiana, and I stopped at many stores that previously would've carried these toys hoping to come across one at "Retail" price.

That being said, the "Product Dimensions" are misleading, as it includes packaging. The toy itself is about 6 inches high.

On to the toy, and toy line itself. My son turned 3 on January 9th, and currently has a complete set of these transformers (except Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, those two he has the Energize! version, a problem for me but not for him, I'll fix that soon enough though!)

He plays with them daily, sometimes for an hour or more in one sitting. He can easily transform all of them with the exception of Medix, but I'm sure he'll get that one soon enough. They are durable, colorful, enhance motor skills, and many of them come with a DVD of the show, which is also excellent.
Most of all, they're FUN. My 9 year old daughter loves to play with them, though sometimes this leads to fights, especially if it's one of his favorites ("Awesomus Prime)

I honestly cannot recommend these toys enough.

This is sturdy enough for a 5 year old and easy to transform. They are played with, travelled with, and have saved the world many times. We've had them for over a year and they are still intact.

My son loves this rescue bot. However, I would not pay $30 for it. I bought it at WMT for $12.

The toy material is very resistible for rough playing!!! My son is 5 and love his Rescue Bots. This toy is perfect for any fan of Transformers and Transformers Rescue Bots. I watch the show with my son and I hope the TV show producer create at least one episode with this character.

Price: - Finally this toy is at reasonable price!!! It's one year and half since my son is into the Transformer Rescue Bots and finally will have his set complete!!!! Attention parents!!! DO NOT BUY this toy unless is $15.00 or less!!!! Keep looking for it. It took me 18 months to find this toy but finally I got it FREE TAX, FREE SHIPPING AND FOR $14.99 So there you go!!! Dont pay more for making your kid happy, Kids are happy with any toy and they don't care if the item is expensive or not!!! My son is 5 and we check for the toy every week and was our little time together to window shopping and add items to our wish list. I hope this helps.

Got this for my 3 year old. He loves all I the Rescue Bots and was excited to see new ones. This one is just like the others, easy to transform and durable. It had been dropped and thrown and is still in perfect shape. If you're looking for something for a little one that is fun and cool, and of the Rescue Bots will get the job done.

Gosh, we can't believe our middle grandson's already turning 4 in a couple of months (any fellow grandparents out there will be nodding their heads in recognition of how much more quickly the years seem to fly by once grandkids arrive!) Seems like yesterday, but it was actually two Christmases ago that we'd tried a first purchase of an "Energize" series Bumblebee Rescue Bot for him, not sure if it'd be beyond his then few-months-shy-of-3 capabilities - I'd remembered Transformers seeming pretty complicated when I was purchasing them decades ago for my oldest son (talk about time flying!) Was happy to see they're SO much easier to transform now, so we went ahead and picked up the rest of the "Energize" figures (Chase the Police-Bot, Heatwave the Fire-Bot, Optimus Prime, Blades the Copter-Bot and Boulder the Construction-Bot) for his 3rd birthday. They've been a big hit from what we understand (Rescue Bots is apparently a favorite cartoon, and I hear it's up for a 2016 Annie Award for accomplishments in animation), so we thought we'd see what other Rescue Bots were out there for his upcoming birthday. It was getting confusing with all of the different models, so I thought it'd be best to try to figure out exactly what all of these different "series" were; here's what I found out, in case you're in the same boat:

Cartoon-wise, sounds like there are three Autobots (leader Optimus Prime, Bumblebee & High Tide), four main Rescue Bots (less experienced Autobots from what I hear, who are Heatwave, Chase, Blades & Boulder), along with two "recruits" (Salvage & Blurr). The Autobots storybook series also has Hoist the Tow-Bot and Medix the Doc-Bot.
