Dino-Bumblebee looks cute enough, but why does he have chest windows when he's a dinosaur?

These new rescue bots are junk. I saw two at Walmart the other day. The quality is embarrassing and they are about scout size. No parent who liked the beat 'em up quality of the original rescue bots are going to buy these flaky things. I am surprised they didn't snap in two when I handled them.......

It does, it looks like a tired old man. :lol:
Bumblebee's dino-mode looks like he's surprised about the whole situation. "What, I'm a dinosaur now?"

Interesting, how Prime uses the same transformation as BW Megatron, while BB uses the same as Classics Grimlock.

Just a few years back, it seemed like too many characters were becoming Wreckers. Now Rescue Bots starts a similar trend of turning established characters into Dinobots. Huh.

To be fair, I only know Jimmie Walker from that awful movie The Guyver (which spawned the awesome Guyver: Dark Hero sequel film). :oops:

Wait a sec. Isn't this supposed to be "Optimus Primal"? Why'd BBTS list it as "Prime"?

Yes, I know it's the same guy, but Toy Fair told us Prime would be renamed "Primal" for this T-Rex form.

Oh god. What did the fandom do to deserve this? The plastic used in these would have been better employed in toothpicks or tupperware containers or something!

ANOTHER BUMBLEBEE! FFS! HOW MANY ARE THERE NOW?

How long will it be before there are more bumblebee toys on earth than there actually are bumblebees?

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Here on Seibertron.com we posted news all the way back during the UK Toy Fair, which was then confirmed by official images, about the Rescue Bots characters getting a dino make-over. We've seen Optimus Prime in T-Rex mode, and a raptor Bumblebee, but check out, courtesy once more of Facebook page Transformers Colombia, Rescue Dinos Chase the Stegosaurus and Boulder the Triceratops!
