While this is for an audience younger than most fans coming ot this site, Hasbro was rather excited about these new Mega Mighties toys. This was a line where all the big names from their various toy lines would be reinterpreted as cute super deformed action figures for kids. These were a more stylistic take than their Titan heroes which were rather static looking and expressionless. While Hot Shot and Bumblebee were part of the first batch, we are getting new Transformers themed toys with Optimus prime and Rescue Bots heatwave. Not all retailers have these yet as they are rather new. Optimus and heatwave were found at Walmarts in Canada, as part of a new Rescue Bots display for the holiday season. Optimus is also available on Amazon.com for $11.99..

You can see stock images and a image of the Walmart display below.

Even as a cute expressive figure, Heatwave remains a grumpy gus. :P

From Decoys to Action Masters, we all know Transformers are so cool that even non-transforming Transformers are worth our attention. Thanks to an update from Hamley's of London we've learned of the new wave 2 of Rescue Bots Academy mini figures characters. Included in the blind bagged wave 2 are Wedge, Hotshot, Optimus Prime, Medix, Hoist, Bumblebee, Whirl, and Chase. Like the wave prior each character has two poses making a total of 16 different figurines, each at 6.5 cm tall. Are you a completist who's gotta catch 'em all? Need little characters to help populate your city bots? Share your thoughts with us in the forum. Enjoy the images and as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

Coming right along with news of MP-49 Black Convoy being listed at BigBadToyStore, we have a new listing for the younger fans of the franchise, in the form of case assortment for Wave 3 of the Rescue Bots Rescan series, due in January. What's interesting about this listing is that two characters, Medix and Chase, have new molds. In this listing from site sponsor Entertainment Earth, we can see that Chase has the new altmode of a drag racer car, and Medix is now an offroad vehicle. Click on any of the iamges to be taken to the listing

The listing states that these will be available in January, so maybe these new figures will be a late Holiday gift for someone on your list? Let us know what you think!

Is it me or has Rescue Bots gotten all the cool alt modes Generations is afraid of? I mean, a friggin' Funny Car? I want a dragster Funny Car. Give me Blurr as that. The Quinjet. Uou know who would work as a Quinjet. a Tomahawk Motorcycle? Meanwhile all we get is G1 with knees.

Edit: no. I'm not done. Seriously, ater Siege3, I want this creative team. They arent afraid to take risks, or pull a slip out of a hat and say "Okay, now who could we turn into THIS vehicle? To hell with what they were, let' s go with what they WILL BE. It doesnt have to be bonkers, but I want Classics back, whem it was all NEO G1. /soapbox

2019 wasn't a bad year for Hot Shot. Aside from his Generations Selects Transformers: Cybertron exclusive version he saw several of his Rescue Bots Academy likeness released. Thanks to a head's up fro our own ScottyP we've learned the latest Transformers Rescue Bots Academy Hot Shot has popped up on the Hasbro website. This is the larger sized assortment that sells for $14.99, with this particular toy looking similar to the Hot Shot previously found in the recent Academy Rescue Team 4-pack (just larger and with some slight difference in deco). From the website description:

"Selected to become a Rescue Bots Academy trainee by none other than Optimus Prime himself, Hot Shot is the hero of the team!

Little heroes ages 3 and up can imagine going on daring mission with one of their favorite Transformers Rescue Bots Academy characters! Designed with Easy 2 Do conversion and sized right for small hands, the Hot Shot toy converts from robot mode to vehicle mode and back again in 1 simple step!
