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.

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.

My 3.5 year old's rescue bot collection is nearly complete... partially due to my own interest in playing along with them. In my son's eyes he likes them all... the newest one he likes most. Here is a list of the order of my favorites and why:

1. Blades - blades is the only one that has a moving object (propeller) and also is the only non-ground bot, so it's fun to have him a part of any collection to change things up. He's also very easy to transform and his transformation looks good.
2. Heatwave - this was the first one we bought and was a great one to start off with. The way the ladder pulls up to transform is very creative and cool. fire engines are cool and a must for rescuing, so Blades and Heatwave together are really all that's needed to make the perfect rescue. His transformability can be difficult for a young one because the arms don't always want to stay down without holding them both down at once.
3. Hoist - when heatwave pops a tire or gets stuck it's nice to have hoist around to pull him out of trouble. Hoist also looks pretty bad-ass and bulky as a robot. His tranformability is similar to Heatwave.
4. Medic - medic is the only one that has a button that activates the transformation. I think as a robot he looks pretty silly, but he's useful to have when someone gets hurt
5. Chase - not always able to incorporate him in our playing. My son really wanted him, but after getting him he didn't get a whole lot of time with him like he did with the others.
6. Boulder - super easy to transform, which makes it kind of boring but good for a 2 year old. He doesn't really help out much except for pushing things off our coffee table that I keep telling my son to leave alone.

* Dinobot - my son just got the Heatwave dinobot for xmas.
