Thanks to Seibertron.com member Sabrblade for pointing out this recent posting over on 2Chan, an image of the cardback for the upcoming Transformers: Rescue Bots Rescan Heatwave figure. In addition to giving us a good look at Heatwave's new fireboat alt mode, the fantasy scene reveals some really interesting characters. There appear to be three dinosaur Transformers! All three appear to have vehicle modes, the most obvious being the brontosaurus who transforms into a firetruck. There's also a green triceratops and red/blue tyrannosaurus. It's likely that Hasbro will be pushing as much dino-themed merchandise as they can to ride the hype wave the Transformers: Age of Extinction Dinobots will almost certainly generate.

Could these possibly be new characters that we will see in the long waited Transformers: Rescue Bots season two. Check em out below.

Look closely and we see that Cody is operating the Brachiosaurus' water cannon.

And, is that a T-Rex with devil horns?! And in Optimus's color scheme?! :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK:

Oh yeah, they're probably trying to directly compete with VTech's Switch & Go Dinos, which have been out for a year or two already.

And with a big Dinobot-centric movie out this summer to remind everyone that they've been doing transforming dinosaur robots for almost 3 decades now, the timing makes it look more like VTech ripped Transformers off, even though they've never really done a team of toddler-friendly dinosaurs with vehicle alts before.

Clever girl, Hasbro. Clever.

Well, I guess we can thank Matt Tieger and Fall of Cybertron for saving the Dinobots. Without them, we wouldn't be getting goodies such as this coming down the pipe.

Pressing qwuestion: Is the orange and white flying jet the same re-imagining that turned Heatwave into a boat Being applied to Blades?

If you look closely Chase has almost spine-like police lights. This is a possibility that they may be making the Rescue-Bots dinbots. As well as the Optimus-Colored dino this very well may be Optimus himself. Bumblebee looks different too the left hand seems to be a claw. That Broncheosuarus (<sorry if I spelled that wrong) with Heatwaves color scheme may br Heatwave also. you can also see the water coming out his mouth..... Heatwave=Firetruck=Waterhose=Broncheo's Mouth???????????????????????

Oh man, if true, then I feel sorry for the guy. It took him a while to get used to just flying, but not fast flying. :lol:

I'm guessing they're matching Dinobot buddies? Or do the Rescue Bots turn into dinosaurs now? Chase seems to have stegosaurus plates on his back, suggesting he turns into one, and there aren't any "doubles" (no 'regular' Heatwave, Boulder, OP), but then Blades is apparently a jet, so I'm not too sure. Dunno if Rescue Bots can handle 3 modes; suppose they could each have 2 new toys...

Originally, I thought Chase had the same kind of door wings going as Prime Smokescreen instead of dino pates and so wrote him off, but if you look at his wrists, obvious dino feet. The triceratops thingy has treads in its forelegs, I wonder if that'sBoulder?

The Bumblebee on the bottom left looks like his alt mode is now a motorcycle? Looks almost like animated Prowl. Hard to see because of the light glare. I wonder if on purpose ;)

We got our first look at these new figures late last month when Smyths Toy Store posted official images of Optimus Prime and Heatwave. Check out the new image and wave details below:

Blew the image up and checked it out a little closer. It appears the the dinos pictured are the Rescue Bots with dinosaur modes. The triceratops has boulders feet back near his tail and dozer treads on it's front legs. The t-rex appears very Optimus Prime-ish. The brontosaurus is Heatwave? Bumblebee also has claws on his left arm.

Yeah, and the only oddball of the bunch is the jet with Blades' deco, which would be weird for him to be the only non-dino on the team. :-?

You can see on the green one that its tail has Boulder's bulldozer blade on it.

Pretty bad when they miss-transform a Rescue Bot. They forgot to open the cover behind Heatwave's head. :roll:

Courtesy of the Transformers Rescue Bots Facebook page we have a piece of art from the upcoming Rescan line by artist Marvin S. Mariano. This gives us a great look at Heatwave, Bumblebee, and Optimus Prime in their new forms. Heatwave now becomes a fireboat, Bumblebee has a new motorcycle mode, and Optimus Prime seems to have a couple of new modes. The first being the previously seen monster truck from the Rescan series, and a completely new Optimus Primal tyrannosaurus/excavator body. Check it out below.

I was just about to post this. :P

It's apparently Optimus Primal. Go figure.

Man, I wish this stuff would be the show! It probably won't be, but I wish it would.

Bumblebee's alt mode is essentially a copy of the Dodge Tomahawk, which I think works well as a TF alt mode.

What?! Optimus Primal?! Who turns into a T-rex/construction vehicle fusion thing?! That's so crazy that it works for me.
