Reviews - Energon Rapid Run w/ Nightcruz & Nightscream
He's a wannabe Sideways.
This is the first transformer I ever got. The colours are my favourite and the minicons are cool. I always keep Nightsream on the head for an Autobot and Nightcruz on the arm. Better than Sideways.
Rapid Run passes as an awesome toy in my book. The two minicons combine to form a bigger robot that can ride on the bike, or individually be a different head for Rapid Run while changing his insignia. Rapid Run may not be articulate but he's still fun.
I wonted the armada version but couldent get it i guss both versions a
For some reason the first batch of models released in both Amerika And Europe they used recolors again.Personely i prevere original models.Allso for some reason rapid run looks better in packadge rather then out.
One word...ugly repaint!
The neon colour scheme works brilliantly, and the translucent green weapons just look sooo eviiiil. Rook and Crosswise have nicer retro-neon schemes. I have both Sideways and Rapid Run - Rapid Run's far better.
i liked the armada one but this one freakin blows the color is horrible. and there is no difference and i haven't seen him on the show so what was the point of making him again?
i hated sideways to begin with. i wish i could give him negative ten
WHY have you done it again.I don't like repaints.I liked the colours of sideways more so why did you repaint especially because its right after armada. Why couldnt you used your time repainting sideways and make a new transformer.
You know it's bad when Hasbro doesn't even take the time to retake the things picture for the card. You know, I hated Armada for it's plethora of shoddy repaints, and I'm starting to hate Energon for the same reason.
This is the best Transformers EVER made, even better than alternators, RID G1 etc. Nothing stands close to this example of toy engineering at its best. Yeah right, as if. Even Wheelie looks good compared to this abomination of a toy.
I liked the Sideways mold pretty good, but this repaint sux. With all the G1 homages being thrown around, why not repaint him to look like Wreck-Gar? It would make sense at least, and look cool also.
Only get it if you dont have armada sideways or if you're a completist.
Three words sad pathedic weak. Rapid Run is a repaint of Sideways thats sad. The painting is pathedic. He looks exactly like Sideways thats weak. What hasbro couldnt think of a new guy to make so they took Sideways and repainted him.
Hasbro Jerked this one up bad for a repaint it looks as if the painted right over the purple color from armada VERY dissapointing! (still woundering why I got him anyway)
Why the low grade? Because of the fact that this is a repaint, and a lame one at that. If you have Sideways, skip this guy. If you don't have Sideways, skip this guy too, as he bites big-time. Sideways simply has the better colour scheme.
awesome!i think sideways or rapid run's(whatever he's called)mini-cons are so cool repainted.his head was cooler befor he got repainted, but just put on a mini-con halmet and,he's cool!
Skip this repaint. Its identical to sideways in every way, including the 1980's articulation..(he has none). I hated sideways and i hate him. waste o'money!
Not as stable in bot mode as Sideways, but the paint job on the Minicons is admirable. Motorcycle "head" can pop off during transformation fairly easily. Not awful, but not necessary. Pass unless you must have them all.
This is the only Energon Transformer that I have his minicons are a lot better then sideways in combiner mode nightscreams arm is able to stay in place for once and they have a better color on them
