Transformers: Rescue Bots Quick Dig Boulder and Epic Optimus Prime at US Retail

Postby Va'al » Tue Apr 03, 2018 3:03 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Courtesy of staff member and Twincast Podcast host ScottyP, we have a sighting for some Transformers Rescue Bots figures from the bigger size of the recent Playskool Heroes line: Quick Dig Boulder and Epic Optimus Prime (modest, much?)!

Both were spotted in Cary, North Carolina, and the Target store there, with Boulder running at 19.99 USD and Optimus Prime much cheaper, at 9.99 USD - which is expected, given the fact that the former can transform (with an easy to do conversion!) and the latter does not. If you come across these or any other Transformers figures, make sure to use the Sightings Database tool to help out other fans, and browse through our regional sightings board section too!

I love this Boulder toy. He's huge for a $20 toy. Total brick house, but in a good way.

The irony of the second Epic Optimus Prime figure being pint-sized compared to the first. :P

New Rescue Bots Figures of Optimus and Heatwave with Images and Listings

Postby WreckerJack » Thu Apr 05, 2018 1:24 am

Motto: "The complain train is leaving the station."
Weapon: Arc-Welders
Two brand new Transformers Rescue Bots toys have been listed on Amazon.com. Figures of Optimus Prime and Heatwave appear on the site as available for purchase. These appear to be very similar to the rest of the Rescue Bots line in terms of how they transform. We can tell that these will be simple and fun toys for kids. In the images below you will notice that Heatwave transforms into a indy race car rather than his usual firetruck mode. Have a look and tell us what you think.

If you enjoy Rescue Bots you should check out the new show that is coming out this fall!

Well, I guess if Red Alert gets to be a fire chief's Lamborghini, then Heatwave can be a race car too. Fun looking toys BTW ;)^

Do you have proof otherwise? If so, I'd enjoy seeing it! ^.^ Also, I am a thirteen-year-old girl myself. My little brother is the only actual little kid I know who's a boy that likes Transformers.

That wasn't being a dick bud, that was just sarcasm about the fact I don't believe her, and I still don't.

As for Proof, go to a Botcon or a TFCon, all the proof you need is there.

I wasn't referring to just this instance. You've been a dick towards multiple members across multiple threads.
