So we heard the Universe of Energy got a brand new blue vehicle. We were suspicious, because Energy are pretty special. They can’t just be painted – as someone said “they painted it blue.”
They’re made out of heat formed plastic. Plastic which, when exposed to any sort of heat – or direct sunlight when they try to remove them from the building for painting for example – would result in the plastic attempting to return to its original flat sheet shape thanks to the properties of shape memory. Meaning, the vehicles would deform and pop off the metal bands that hold the formed seat pieces in place if they heat up. Yes, we recognize the irony of the vehicles that “ride on sunshine” not being able to be exposed to direct sunlight. They also have issues getting over the little lip of the maintenance bay roll-up door at the rear of the building too.
Well, we investigated in person. It’s a brand new blue heat formed vehicle with dark blue metal bands. This replaces the purple and mauve old vehicle. Apparently they’re going to swap them out one at a time. Energy has 13 vehicle. 12 to use in the show and 1 spare. This is apparently what happened to the spare chassis. Now the others will be converted to the new color scheme one at a time. And without further ado – glamor shots of the new vehicle. It was riding in the front right position, otherwise known as position five.
