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.

Is that Salvage mix truck in the rescue bots academy 4 pack. The face does not look like salvage so i'm wondering if its a re-deco.

It's Whirl, Wedge, Hot Shot, and Hoist.

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.

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.
