Via a couple of eBay listings - which have now ended, just so we're clear - we have news of two new Transformers Rescue Bots play sets that had gone unnoticed until now. Specifically, we're talking about the Arctic Rescue Boulder and Bumblebee Rock Rescue Team, which appear to be redesigns/redecos of the two characters with a specific emergency theme to them, and an added combiner play pattern for the other elements of the set. Check out the images below!

Just saw these toys in my local target in MA. The gorilla Mini-Con is named Windchill, and the eagle and lion are named Talon and Hunter respectively. Bumblebee gets 2 Mini-Cons, but Windchill is MUCH larger so it evens out. First time I had seen or heard about these. They look pretty sweet!

Fellow Seibertronian Tigertrack has found the newly known Rescue Bots toys at Target in Livonia, MI. These are the Arctic Rescue Boulder and Bumblebee Rock Rescue Team, which appear to be redesigns/redecos of the two characters with a specific emergency theme to them, and an added combiner play pattern for the other elements of the set, including a Griffin! These are $19.99. You can see images below of this finding and more when they were first found online.
Seibertronian Death-Ray Charles has also found these in the Massachusetts area at Target as well.

Characters include Bumblebee, Boulder, Salvage, Quickshadow, and Blades, and are scheduled to arrive in February. Check them out below!

They really are just Bot Shots aren't they? They're not even hiding it now with the launchers. Not that there's anything wrong with that, those were fun figures.

The word 'shot' is probably too violent for Rescue Bots. But yeah, it's the exact same concept.

A more show-accurate Quickshadow!?! Got a friend who needs that for his daughters.

And customizers who insist on giving every fembot a boob-where possible, please remember that this is a preschool line...





...therefore plenty will turn up on the secondary market with the chest door broken off, making it worth the wait for the dirt cheap price.

Also, turning Blades into a little Indy car gives him a striking resemblance to Leadfoot, my favorite PCC!

Blades appears to be in his Jet mode the cockpit and wings are visible on the toy.

TFW2005 just posted tweet with an image of a Combiner for Combiner Force in art form at least on a card standee backing in a store.

It has Strongarm as a right arm , Sideswipe as the left Bumblebee as the chest and Grimlock as the legs - Grimlock is obviously much larger.

I wonder what size the toy version will be ?

Yes indeed - he's quite similar to the Botshots Powerglide and Jetfire.

I hope they get the pricing right on these as those Dinosaur ones were a total mess in the UK if you could find them at all they were twice the american dollar price in a $-£ swap so like $4.00 in USA and £8.00 in the UK - no wonder no one bought them - I was really irked by the 26 missing paint applications on Blades too compared to his packet.

The sad thing is they could have been a really fun size to go with if they'd kept the larger size as it was. but they got a bit greedy - I guess the smaller more or less Deluxe Rescue Bots have their uses though.

But i'll get these so long as Hasbro isn't delusional with the pricing or the stores have a good offer on them.

As when I see a shop selling an RID 3 step for £27 my first thought is to laugh in their face.

Do you smell that, Seibertronians? It's the distinct smell of New York Toy fair, and that always means we see some new products revealed in the days proceeding it. Today we've got another (particularly cute) example of that rule, coming from the Portugal Hasbro website:
Transformers Collectable Edition Playskool Friends! Here's some project shots and official description that also mentions the characters included in the set, one of which, strangely enough, is Arcee.

The little ones will learn about teamwork and unleash their imagination with these 7 cute little autobots!
Includes: Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Arcee, Heatwave, Chase, Blades and Boulder.

As mentioned above, these are only listed so far on the Hasbro Portugal site, so world-wide release is not guaranteed, but is probable. Revel in the cuteness in the comments below!
