I'm a little surprised this isn't green already since this is most definitely RID Grimlock and not the less kid friendly other Aligned Grimlock. I guess he's in his "Gold Armor" mode.

What makes you so sure this is RID Grimlock? Cyberverse has a kid friendly grimlock at the moment.

Because RID and Rescue Bots are part of the same continuity and Cyberverse isn't. Aligned continuity is a strange animal.

And now I'm worried that they'll make Aligned continuity even more confusing by having Grimlock show up in the RBA cartoon acting like Cyberverse Grimock rather than RiD Grimlock.

I am surprised we are still considering the alligned continuity a thing. I dont think hasbro does. And in any case, isn't this also Alligned Grimlock?

He ends up having the same colour scheme as this bike. All I mean is at this point, I dont think that continuity means anything so that grimlock is basically just rescue bots grimlock taking some G1 cues.

If a G1-looking Grimlock shows up in RBA with a caveman-speaking dino mode and a normal-speaking robot mode a la Cyberverse Grimlock, then we can just consider him FOC Grimlock having calmed down over the years since he's the Grimlock who first started the whole "savage dino mode/calm robot mode" thing that Cyberverse Grimlock utilizes.

As far as anyone official still treating Aligned as a thing, Nicole Dubuc at least still does.

Rescue Bots Academy Flip Racers Whirl Shows Up at Retail Unannounced

Postby Emerje » Fri Jul 05, 2019 9:01 pm

Motto: "*Shrug*"
Weapon: Saw-Edged Pincer
In a rare case of "this never happens" we're treated to a first look at a figure that nobody knew existed until it showed up at retail. Thanks to Darryl Wall (@DWallsEpicHauls) for giving us our very first look (not even at Toy Fair!) at Rescue Bots Academy Flip Racers Whirl after finding it at retail in Nova Scotia and posting it to Twitter. It isn't a figure that will interest most Transformers fans, but it's nice to know that in 2019, with all the events and leaks and retailer assortment lists, there's still the occasional surprise.

And if you've found anything out in the wilds that you think is news worthy feel free to take a picture and send it into us and post it in the Energon Pub Forums!

Two thing:

1. The Rescue Bots Academy designs are starting to rival the Robot Heroes figures in terms of TF cuteness.

2. I love the diagram on the front of the packaging showing the vehicle being flipped into robot mode by way of a delicately extended index finger, as if that's the "proper" way to do it.
