A new Seibertronian, Card, did some investigative journalism for us in hope that he would get answers regarding when the new Rescue Bot transforming Salvage and High Tide would be available. His son is quite a fan of the toyline and as any good father would, he got to the bottom of it and shared with us what he learnt.

He spoke to Hasbro via chat which confirmed their cancellation. Here is the quote from him and Hasbro:

Card wrote:Talked to Hasbro via chat, they cancelled both of them.

"It looks as though the Playskool Heroes Transformers Rescue Bots Salvage, item #B7459 was cancelled and is not shipping. I do not have any indication that it will start shipping either, I'm very sorry.

They are part of the same assortment and the assortment was cancelled.

This is why we do not provide dates to consumers because the product can be dropped completely. It is a marketing decision."


For those curious as to what exactly these toys are, we have images below. Both Salvage and High Tide are based on previous toys but changed to either be up-scaled or unhindered by a previous gimmick. They were going to be another Amazon exclusive "wave" at one point, which we never got. These toys never being released gave us the presumption that they were cancelled for the US market but now we know it as a fact. However, this does not mean that these toys were never found elsewhere globally since we were able to find some listings from Asia for the High Tide figure. You can also see an image of that completed listing below.

I have a very uncomfortable feeling that this is what's going to happen to the general retail release of Grotusque. Here's hoping I'm proven wrong.

Such a bummer. Salvage looks like he would have been fun to transform. But then again I don't know the technical end of it. Might have been costly or somehow flawed.

Not sure if this is the right place to post deals but Artic Rescue Boulder is $ 9.97 on amazon.ca - https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01KA6WY6G/

$20 cheaper than Walmart.ca.

We ring in the new year with some brand new Rescue Bots toys listed on Entertainment Earth. For Starters we have a selection of Rescan figures for Wave 18. We have included an image below as well as the case distribution below.

There aren't any Decepticons around, so it's time for the Rescue Bots to save the day! Under the command of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, this crack squad of robots is here to help save the world, and to give kids a great, big, chunky transforming toy to play with. Figures each measure approximately 5-inches tall in robot form. Ages 3 to 7.

The case includes 6 individually packaged Transformers toys includes:
1x TRA RBT RESCAN CHASE THE POLICE BOT
1x TRA RBT RESCAN BOULDER CONSTRUCTION BOT
1x TRA RBT BRUSHFIRE
1x TRA RBT BUMBLEBEE
1x TRA RBT HEATWAVE THE FIRE BOT
1x TRA RBT OPTIMUS PRIME TRAILER RESCAN

Next, we have Transformers Rescue Bots Epic Figures Wave 5. These appear to be non transforming figures for kids, but again we give you an image and the case distribution information to see for yourself.

Heatwave as a race-car like Blurr? He won't be happy with that.

Probably a late addition to the Race Car sets

Also from regular Weibo source tf-factory this weekend, we have an image for a potentially new addition to the Transformers Rescue Bots toylines - or maybe even the new animated series being developed by Boulder Media, Rescue Bots Academy - in the form of Optimus Primal.

Except this time (as we have seen before in the series' depictions, and as a recurring theme for the cast) Optimus Primal is a red and blue Tyrannosaurus Rex. The big (dino)bot seems to be making a return with a different transformation pattern, looking at the panel lines in the image, and is bringing along two smaller dino figures as potential accessories for Optimus, and another figure: a blue wolf with a motorcycle alt-mode, which is apparently the same as Growl the K-9 Bot, previously released with the Griffin Rock Police Station. Check them all out below!

EDIT: The jaguar is in fact a panther, from the Marvel Black Panther toyline, and nothing to do with Transformers. Apologies for the misreporting.

NOT A TRANSFORMER

That Jaguar thing is a Black Panther toy, is out at retail now. I saw a bumblebee of the same size class at Meijer the other night.

All I wanna know is if that Optimus transforms or not. Otherwise, I'm good with the previous big T-Rex Optimus Primal toy that they made before.

I would say that he does transform as there is detail on his underside that looks very robotish.

Interested to see what that Optimus Primal looks in robot mode.

I'd like to get Growl now that he doesn't have a whole playset attached.

So I guess the line hasn't been canceled or was it just those couple figures that one person contacted Hasbro about?
