When it comes to the Transformers Rescue Bots Mini-Cons, we are now at wave 7. It is mostly repacks of previous waves but we do have a new figure too, that being a green redeco of Drake (the dragon Target Master, not the rapper). This is the case contents:

2x TRA RBT HEATWAVE THE RESCUE DINOBOT
2x TRA RBT DRAKE THE DRAGON BOT
2x TRA RBT CHASE THE RESCUE DINOBOT

This was revealed through a listing on Entertainment Earth and wll be coming out next month. Thanks to Scotty P for letting us know.

They probably didn’t retool that Dinobot Heatwave. It’s very easy to break.


are you sure? I have that dinobot. Played it repeatedly on daily basis as a substitute to fidget spinner. Not even a stressmark.

The toys are both retailing for $19.99 Canadian dollars and $14.99 USD and they come with an accessory for the character to crash into, triggering another play feature. Like other Rescue Bot toys, these are aimed at a young audience, so the figures do not have any points of articulation and simple transformation.

Here is the website description for both Heatwave and Quickshadow.

Heatwave:
Race to the rescue with the Rescue Bots Flip Racers figures! Sized right for small hands, these Flip Racers vehicles feature pull-back-and-go action! Pull back the Heatwave the Fire-Bot vehicle until the wheels click and then release it to send it racing off! For even more fun, try sending Heatwave the Fire-Bot crashing into the fire hydrant accessory to launch the manhole cover and imagine putting out a fire! Convert from vehicle mode to bot mode in 1 easy step! Flip up the Heatwave the Fire-Bot vehicle to convert it to bot mode. Flip it back down to convert it into a firetruck. Robots and humans saving the day, working together the Rescue Bots way!

Pull-back-and-go action

So, the gimmick of these rescue-themed toys is to incite actions that cause collateral damage? :P

Yes! This is exactly how you do that! Blowing the manhole cover is absolutely essential to the whole operation! Psst... just uh... need a small reminder on how that exactly works, thanks.

Rolling to the scene of the rescue! Yes! Whenever there is a rescue, rolling barrels provide the needed help to get the job done! It doesn't even matter what type of rescue (water, fire, storm, etc.), having barrels to roll will always prove to be a necessary part of ANY rescue. That trailer wasn't carrying waste materials, right?

Wedge is a head retool of Arctic Rescue Boulder, and Hot Shot an extensive retool of the Rescan class Bumblebee that turns into a VTOL jet resembling an MCU Quinjet.

Rescue Bots News with Hot Shot Toys Found at US Retail and Optimus Prime Launcher Trailer Revealed

Postby william-james88 » Mon Nov 26, 2018 11:24 pm

We have quite a bit of Rescue Bots news for you today. These are all related to the new Rescue Bots Academy toyline. It is very much the same complexity and design as previous Rescue Bots toys but we do have different toys and characters. Hot Shot is a main character now and this week we not only have one but two sightings to report. Fellow Seibertronian Rysquad ppotted the VTOL Hot Shot at a Walgreen's in Murrieta, CA. Also, the giant eleectroni Hot Shot was found in the Michigan area at a Kmart. You can also order it from the Kmart site here. It is $25 USD.

In other Rescue Bots Academy news we have a new Optimus with Trailer. And this trailer has a launch feature where you can place a flip racer upright (in robot mode) and then launch them in vehicle mode. This is the first time we were made aware of the product, thanks to a listing on Entertainment Earth. The toy is priced at $20.99 and is set for release in Janruary.

Saw that electronic Hot Shot at Kmart myself today, thought it had already been sighted. Thought about getting it since I had enough points earned to get it for free, but I ended up getting my nephew a $40 Lego set for $16~ for Christmas instead. Incidentally it was the Stormbringer dragon set, hows that for a lost (or at least missed opportunity) Hasbro trademark?

New Rescue Bots Academy figures found at retail

Motto: "*Shrug*"
Weapon: Saw-Edged Pincer
It's been a while since we've had Rescue Bots news! Our very own Seibertron has spotted some brand new Rescue Bots Academy figures. Over at a Target in Rosemont, IL he found the larger changing figures of Whirl and Medix, but Hot Shot seems to have sold out (though we already have a sighting of him). At this same Target we also got a first look at Mega Mighties Hot Shot and Bumblebee in the wilds.

Meanwhile, at a Des Plaines, IL Kmart he also found the latest Rescan-sized Wedge figures. Wedge has also shown up on Amazon as well as Salvage which is currently sitting at a markup.

I've seen the Whirl figure in stores. She is BIG! Like, taller than the original six Rescue Bots.

Medix too. His new toy is larger than his original.

Yeah that bigger Whirl (and Medix) are in stores now. My son has so many Rescan-size figures that I’m hesitant to get Whirl.

Keep Rescan scale and we’ll keep collecting.

They're all redecos. Whirl of VTOL jet Bumblebee (her Megabots size figure is effectively an upsized version of Rescan helicopter Blades), Wedge of Salvage (Wedge's first toy was a redeco of Arctic Boulder), Hot Shot of Rock Rescue (ATV) Bumblebee (his first toy was effectively an upsized version of the same Bumblebee, while his second figure was a remold of VTOL jet Bumblebee), and Hoist is a redeco of.... Hoist - the Rescan series figure from the original Rescue Bots.

Meanwhile, hovercraft Hot Shot appears to be a remold of fireboat Heatwave, the Megabots sized Medix is functionally an upsized Rescan car mode Bumblebee. That blue redeco of racecar Heatwave -- is that Chase or Whirl? And like Hoist, ambulance Medix ia a redeco of RB Medix. The large size Wedge looks like it might be essentially an upsized Rescan bulldozer Boulder.

First Look at Stock Photos of Motorcycle Grimlock Figure and More from Rescue Bots Academy Line

Postby Emerje » Thu May 09, 2019 9:25 pm

Motto: "*Shrug*"
Weapon: Saw-Edged Pincer
File this one under "things you didn't know you wanted until it existed." Autobase Aichi's blog posted new stock photos of upcoming Rescue Bots Academy figures coming to the Rescan class and it would be hard to ignore the dino-mode Grimlock that turns into a motorcycle! He was shown at Toy Fair 2019, but at the time we didn't really know what we were looking at. Yes, it's silly, but that's what makes it fun! As you would expect from Rescue Bots it's a simple figure and may not satisfy most collectors, but it does have an effective transformation. And I love that goofy grin, what a happy bike!

There's also a new Whirl race car figure in the same class alongside Brushfire, Heatwave, Bumblebee, and Chase. Plus there's new stock images of the Academy Rescue Team box set shown at Toy Fair. So what do you think of the new Grimlock trading in his bot mode for a motorcycle? Sound off in the Energon Pub forums below!
