Transformers Prime Cyberverse Evac FigureWhile it was my intent to sit out Prime, I stumbled on some half-price toys and decided to pick up Evac (and a couple of others) as I had an eye out for this one as the first-ever "theme park" Transformers toy. And it was in regular stores, too! A deluxe version will be sold at the Universal Studios, but if you're cheap like me you can get this pretty much anywhere right now.

Packaged in robot mode, transformation is just as easy as always. Fold up the legs at the "knees", fold 'em back, and then fold the arms in place and presto-- you get some funky Cybertronian car thing. I really dig the vehicle mode, as the giant windshield reminds me a little bit of the movie (and by movie, I mean 1987) Autobot cars. It's bulky and sleek all at once, which I didn't know was really possible. Granted, I'm not a car guy either, so I just enjoy this thing as a funky toy.

Transformers Prime Cyberverse Evac Figure The wheels on my sample roll fairly well, which is a plus. The vehicle has no real action features to speak of, but there are a bunch of small holes on which you can attach weapons. Now that Hasbro has included weapons in all these figures, they're a little more fun: it gives the figure a little more oomph and the vehicle has one extra thing you can play with. It looks great, and I bet repaints of it would look pretty cool too.

The robot mode is also quite nice, but it has all the usual trappings of this smaller 3-inch figure scale. He is jointed at the shoulders, hips, and sorta the knees while the figure has a decent amount of deco. Silver, light blue, red, black, and yellow paint on this figure no doubt added to the cost, but it looks really slick. The head is more or less "movieverse" but it's not like you can tell at this scale. There are light blue eyes-- which I'm stunned they bothered to paint at this scale-- and a light face helps to bring out some of the sculpted detail. As always bigger toys tend to have more going on, but this one is plenty good and the chest sculpt with the openings on the front are a nice touch.

Transformers Prime Cyberverse Evac Figure

As my focus has shifted mostly to smaller stuff and classic stuff, I didn't expect to buy or like this, but after eyeballing it at the Walmart I was pretty jazzed to stumble on it at a special store for two bucks and change. Even for five or six, I'd say it's worth a look-- I love the fact he's got a gun (reused from Bumblebee) instead of the usual accessory-free configuration. It's a delightfully weird figure and if you're going to take your kids to Universal, you can always get this figure after you get home. Until they discontinue it, which is probably going to be around August.
