When we revealed the upcoming Rescue Bots products coming our way, many thought it would be smart to rerelease the small Rescue Bots dino figures as Dinobot redecos. It works well since the main Rescue Bot characters had been given the same alt modes as the G1 Dinobots. So now we have Snarl, Sludge, Slug and Swoop to join Grimlock who was already part of Rescue Bots. These are older molds but they are perfect for younger kids. Each transforms quickly but satisfyingly for kids and each has a fun action feature, like Swoop flapping his wings. These are a great way to give your young kids some G1 Dinobots that they can play with and have fun with, I know my 3 year old loves them. We also have more stock images for the other upcoming toys part of this Dinobots Adventures subline.

These images come from Autobase Aichi.

They really should have saved one of those Optimus repaints/repacks for Grimlock. It's weird that they all turn into bots except for him. Or better yet, make a new one.

I remember you saying that and it only got stranger as they added more Dinobots.

Again, I don't think the target audience are going to give a flying monkey. These are meant for young children...not us. Besides which, I think I might see why there isn't a grimlock OK his own (unless he's getting a new toy that isn't ready for release yet) look at Bumblebee's trex mode and it's colours...don't they look familiar? Hasbro won't want too similar looking toys on the shelf, especially the same alt mode. Now you might ask, but why bee over Grimlock I hear you ask? Because kids love Bumblebee, it's that simple.

Bumblebee is a raptor, not a T-Rex.

I think its because there's already grimlock in the RB line. And Grimlock, so far, does not transform into a humanoid robot at any time.

Interesting, does he appear in any of the cartoons?

Yeah, he is one of the mentors in Rescue Bots academy, so he even has character centric episodes. And he remains a t-rex at all times. And he is his G1 lookinng self in that mode. So that's why he is not a redeco of a toy that was previously another character, like the other toys, at least it's what I reckon.

Sorry, I mistyped. Dealing with full on covid so I'm a bit scatter brained. Edited my original post for a bit more clarity.

Hasbro simply wanted the Dinobot in the show to be Grimlock, even though he was originally conceived by the showrunners to be a brand new red Stegosaurus character. But with AOE out at the time, Hasbro wanted to capitalize on that movie's release by having the big name recognition of Dinobot T-Rex Grimlock spread across the board and requested the RID 2015 showrunners change their new Dinobot character into a new Grimlock.

This Grimlock then became the one seen in RBA despite the obvious G1-based redesign he was given as part of the brand's new implementation of evergreen designs.

Right, I see, thanks for the explanation :)

Well that didn't take long. We just learnt of brand new Rescue Bots products coming out way and the ones people were most excited about have been found at Canadian retail. These are part of the Dinobots Adventures subline and are redecos to turn previously released Resce Bot toys into G1 Snarl, Sludge, Slag and Swoop. Those were some of my kid's favourite toys and since he had misplaced some of the original releases (because he is 3) you can bet your bottom dollar we took some home with us. All four have a quick conversion and a simple but satisfying action gimmick in dino mode. Slag does require some shaving of the plastic to make the one step transformation easier to do. This specific sighting is from a Toysrus in Montreal Canada. Unlike other Rescue Bots toys, these were not in the Playskool section but rather the main Transformers section.

Haven't seen Roddy yet, but I myself think WfC has had the best distribution Central Indiana has seen in quite a while.and really most of the current TF Toylines

EDIT: I refer specifically to WFC Rodimus because that's what is in the attached picture. I do realize tjis is supposed to be a Rescue Bots thread
