Kinda wish Graham (and the other adults in this line) were taller.

Kinda wish Graham came with Boulder. Hoping we get all the Rescue Bots and Burns family members out of this line.

As for the Robots themselves, it's the return of Robot Heroes. :)

Robot Heroes were terribly deformed. These are hardly deformed.

They have a lot of yellow paint for obvious reasons, so Hasbro said "why not" and went crazy.

So, they're... new and improved Robot Heroes. :P

One can easily get tanned working out on the job site all day. :lol:

All joking aside, I'm hoping it's either a goof or a variant. I mention variants since the previous non-show humans came in variants of Caucasian/White and African/Black, so there might be a corrected-color version of Graham out there.

There's a crossover between "Rescue Bots" and "The Simpsons" in the works. Don't tell anybody.

I just meant that they have a similar (to my eye, at least) aesthetic. And likely are about the same size (possibly a little bigger) and probably have the same amount of articulation. I'm not trying to put these things down or anything.

That said, Boulder and Dani weren't shown at Botcon, and I'll be really unhappy if they don't make them. Especiallly Dani, given that Boulder already has a toy.

A little bit bigger? Then those human partners must be smaller than a dime. Are you aware of how small Robot Heroes were? They were approximately two inches tall. Even if these toys are supposed to be smaller, I don't see them being "a little bit bigger."

Do we even know how tall they are?

Fine, assuming the humans are the same size as previous Rescue Bots humans, then the bots are probably twice as big as Robot Heroes, but they're still small, chunky, non-transforming Transformers figurines! Is that all right for everyone, or do we want to nitpick some more?!

...Sorry. Been a bit of a day for me.
