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!

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.

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.

Forgot to post this under this forum, but did spot the Bumblebee Track Tower at a local Target in Virginia. While another line I do not collect, this will be awesome for someone’s kids.

Arcee? No, R/C, as in radio controlled! Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Rysquad we've learned of cool new Transformers toy for our younger fans, the Transformers Rescue Bots Academy Bumblebee vs. Chase Bumper Cars Twin Pack. Rysquad spotted these at their local Target in Murrieta, CA. These use a not uncommon remote controlled vehicle design which ejects the rider of one vehicle when certain crash pads are collided with by the other. As shown in the images these are retailing for $29.99. The scale doesn't appear to be too dramatically different from the standard Rescue Bots so you can create a whole racing side quest to your regularly scheduled Rescue Bots adventures. Who will win? Bumblebee? Chase? Hey, wait...Chase, I just got that. Are you like me and just got that? Well sound off and let us know in the forums. And as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

Happy Friday Seibertronians! Coming in hotter than the reading on the thermostat is a sighting from our fellow Seibertronian Archforce of the Rescue Bots Academy Rescue Team 4-pack for just $34.73! This set including Hot Shot, Whirl the Flight-Bot, Wedge the Construction Bot, and Hoist is now officially in the wild so warm up your receptors Perceptors and keep your optics peeled for these new recruits. These easy 2-Do transformations are simple 1-2 step processes and are perfect for our younger protoforms. Archforce spotted the set at their local WalMart in Thornton, Colorado.
