"Prepare to make sparks fly! Rip your opponent to pieces with SawBlaze's decimating hammer-saw and ramp. SawBlaze is sure to deal relentless damage to any opponent that dares to stand in its way, leaving a trail of carnage in its wake.
— The toy's official description

SawBlaze was one of two BattleBots competitors made into infrared remote control toys by HEXBUG in July 2021. It was released alongside Whiplash in the first two-pack Platinum Rivals set, but not separately.

Unlike HEXBUG remote control releases before it, SawBlaze uses a rechargeable, 100mAh 3.7V lithium polymer battery,[1] a much smaller version of the kind of batteries often seen in heavyweight BattleBots machines, meaning the toy could be charged from a micro USB port rather than needing to totally replace AAA batteries. The toy also features an additional motor to power both its hammer arm and spinning disk. These upgrades saw SawBlaze and Whiplash priced higher than previous Rivals packs, at $69.99.

The toy is very accurate compared to SawBlaze's real-life counterpart. Its chassis, weaponry overall appearance a bear strong resemblance of SawBlaze during the 2020 season. Both its active weapons can be powered together in order to replicate its hammer saw weaponry of Jamison Go's heavyweight. It even features many of the sponsorship decals present on the bot. However, the disk is not interchangeable with a saw blade as was seen during the 2020 season in their fight against Rusty.

SawBlaze is available as a two-pack Rivals Platinum set, as well as in an Arena Platinum set which includes the first edition of the HEXBUG BattleBox.
