We recently brought you in-package pictures of the new Rescue Bots Energize figures including Optimus Prime with Cody Burns, Bumblebee with Graham Burns, Chase with Chief Burns. Now, thanks to Transformedhero on twitter, we can confirm that these are hitting retail. He also provided a pic which shows Heatwave with Kade Burns and he found these in a Walmart in Ohio.

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

I'm really starting to consider picking these up. If they give us Blades and Dani in "Energize," I'm 100% sold. :D

Awesome! My son's getting these for Christmas if I can find them in time. Or just getting them, period. He loves his Rescue Bots, but he doesn't like that the humans that he has now aren't the ones on the show. To the hunt!

Still wish the adults were twice taller than Cody, but I'll still keep an eye out for these.

If they were double Cody's current size, the 'bots would be in terrible scale. Cody needs to be smaller.

Maybe not "double", but still taller. I mean, he's a kid and they're all adult. I'd take them being at least a head taller, even. ;)

Hi All... First time poster here! I've been buying the Rescue Bots line for my son and just found out about these today. I'm sure I'll kick myself later, but I bought Optimus, Bee, Chase, and Heatweave on Ebay today. Can anyone confirm the scale of these guys? Are the humans the same size as the other humans made so far? The reason I ask is the humans in these packs look to be non-poseable and I'm wondering if they are smaller than the others figures. I can't wait to get these!
PS... I'm brand new to the board. I'm a huge Transformers Prime and Transformers Animated fan and have recently gotten my 3 1/2 year old into TF. He's loving his Rescue Bots (along with his Marvel, Star Wars, and Imaginext toys) :grin:

Here's a review that should contain the answers you seek - http://www.eyrie.org/~dvandom/BW/123/RBBasic3

Hope this helps. :D

I should have all of these next week, including the 2 Electronic figures (Optimus and Bumblebee). I'll be sure to post some pics once I have them.

I'm still unable to find any of these locally (in Virginia). Hopefully they'll pop up soon. The set I bought off Ebay is for ME, but my son will like to have them soon as well! :lol:

Great news for you Transformers: Rescue Bots fans, the latest wave of figures has been sighted at retail! Our fearless leader Seibertron spotted the non-transforming Energize Optimus Prime at a Target in Rosemont, IL priced at $27.00. His wavemate Bumblebee was nowhere to be found, but fellow Seibertron.com member RickWJ324 purchased the pair on eBay and supplied us with an image as well.

Here's some comparison pics of the new toys. As you can see, the electronic Optimus and Bumblebee are the same size as the previously released Chase and Heatwave:

And here's a pic of the smaller figures. I placed a Playskool Marvel Heroes Spider-man next to them. As you can see the non-poseable humans that come with the Transformers are 100% to scale with the poseable figures, but without the poseability:

Happy Holidays Everyone!!!!
