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.
