Very nice galleries, and these look fun! Although I can't say I'm a big fan of the packaging (or lack thereof).

EDIT: One complaint... No pictures of Grimlock riding Optimus Primal? :P that aside, there DOES seeem to be a thing on his beast mode back (right on the robot mode head, actually) where the little human figures they make for the Rescue Bots line are meant to ride.

Great flicks; I am glad I scooped up Blades and Heatwave when I did.
Got to admit, Grimlock riding this dino mode OP is a pretty awesome idea.

Heatwave really sucks! We bought him yesterday, took him back today and got little man another one. Got home and opened him up. Broke on the 2nd transformation. Again.. Must be a design defect, that they obviously should have caught but, regardless. Save your self the headache. The Prime is pretty kool though. :BOT:

I ordered one online and I'm expecting it soon... Where/how did he break? I'd like to kow what to watch out for.

He's basically a one step Transformation. You Split his head and neck apart and as you pull them all the way down to make his arms his legs come down from the rear underneath the front legs to make up the Bot legs. And then you can flip his tail down.
It has one screw which doesn't help so I can't even open it to see what broke. I handed it to my son, and no lie. 10 seconds later he hands it back to me broken. Twice! And the second time I know he was being extremely careful.
:-? It's really frustrating. :BOT:

Thanks for the warning, I'll be careful.

It does break a lot.
I figured out the fix, and so it's not so bad.
If your dino doesn't want to close the head, and the feet no longer move when closing the arms...

Last resort:
1. Tilt the head / torso forward (or use button)
2. Close the arms to form the head (now has clearance)
3. Force the legs down to the standing position until you hear a snap.

That should hook the legs back into the head mechanism. Happy camping.
I assume this "break" can happen if you tried to push the legs up with the arms open or something.
