ravimus prime's review of: Evac

Name: Evac
Allegiance: Autobot
Function: Earth Guardian

Evac loves flying on Earth almost as much as he loved soaring over the epic skylines of Cybertron. He's been in hiding on Earth since guardianship of the Planet Key was passed on to him millions of years ago. He feels a keen affection for the people of Earth, whose history he has observed from its very beginnings. It frustrates him that the Transformers must keep their presence on Earth a secret, because he recognizes the potential value of the humans as allies. Courageous, determined and gentle, Evac avoids fighting when he can, but if forced into combat, he can be a very tough opponent. He is dedicated to the protection of other life in all its forms.

Vehicle Mode:
Evac comes packaged as some sort of helicopter. The main colours here are grey and orange. The orange isn't totally garish though, and it suits him quite well. The body of the helicopter is sleek, with a bulbous nose in front. You can press a red button near the top of the helicopter and the blades start to spin. It works well, and makes little noise, unlike Armada Cyclonus for example. There is a winch on the right side of the vehicle. You can only pull it down a tiny bit though. Pressing a red button will pull up the winch very fast. Inserting the cyber planet key will cause missile launchers to spring forward - one of the better cyber key gimmicks. Overall, itís a very cool and fun mode.

Robot Mode:
Evac has a fairly simple robot mode, but nonetheless, a good one. The head sculpt is very detailed and original. Copter parts can still be seen in the arms and legs and back. The winch is on his right arm, and works the same as in vehicle mode. His left arm has the helicopter blades on it. Movement is limited, as the blades are so long. They can be taken off, but there's nowhere to put them. Same gimmick applies for the blades as well. The copter tail splits in half, and are on his back. They can be folded down or left up, a nice touch. The cyber planet key causes the missile launchers to spring upwards. You can put the back pack over his arms, so the missile launchers face forward. A good robot mode overall, not many complaints.

Transformation: 7. Hard enough the first time.
Durability: 10. Solid as a rock.
Fun: 10. Cool features and gimmicks you see...
Price: 9. Sold in retail in parts of Europe and in America, cheap as chips. You can get it on eBay for a good price too.
Overall: 8. Yes, I would recommend Evac. He looks the part and has nice features. If you're into Cybertron, go for him.
