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!

Bounti76 wrote:And now, something intended for the younger Transformers fans. Via online listings from Smyth's Toys, in the U.K., we have two new playsets of Rescue Bots Wedge, and Hoist. While the two individual toys look to be different molds, the "Command Center" parts of these playsets seem to be simple remolds of each other. They also share a light up feature in the crane arm of each Command Center.

There's no word on when these sets will be available in the U.S. (a quick search of Amazon didn't show any listings for these), but keep your eyes peeled if you're a fan of this line. And as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the latest in Transformers news!


I look forward to these being single-packed without the trailer (per Heatwave, Chase).

The new mold of Rescue Bots Chase, released now under Rescue Bots Academy, has been found in both the US and Canada. In Canada, he was found at a Toysrus in Montreal for $15 while in the US he was found at a Walgreens in North Carolina for $14. This is a new mold for Chase the Police Bot as he is now a drag racer. I actually purchased this for my two year old and thus I have some more pictures for you.

The size is similar to a deluxe, the same size of other Rescue Bots its size in the previous line before the rebranding. While he turns into a Drag Racer rather than a police car, and thus less show accurate, I can attest that my kid did not care. This new mold actually fixes a lot of design aspects from the original. The robot mode looks better as it is more proportionate and defined rather than just look like the alt mode parts slightly more apart from each other. Also, the original's transformation mechanism broke up the blue of the alt mode but here it's all concealed within the toy. So both modes look great. I really like the headsculpt where he has a nice police cap. The transformation is as simple as ever,very quick and effective, recreating the rapidity seen onscreen. All you have to do is flip down the spoiler and it's done. Here are images below compared to previous Rescut Bot toys and other one steps.

This turbo-cop look pretty cool!

Also, 15$CAN? Based on the US price, is that on sale or is this a new low price for this line?

It's the price it's been for this class for the past 4 years or so. It just didnt go up when other toys did. I guess because its part of a different section.

Maybe it's price-increase PTSD.
Because those really sky-rocketed since a few years. Especially at Walmart, where some toys are 3 to 5$ more than other places for random reasons.

Is this new? I thought we'd seen chases a dragster before? Or is this just taking a long time to get out

Maybe the you-know-what didn't help.

Aha, so it's yet another use of Blurr's transformation mechanism/skeleton.

Sweet. My five year old son has kind of aged out of Rescue Bots - he's moved on to some Cyberverse and WFC Trilogy. I hate seeing the larger Rescue Bots - they should all be Rescan sized! :lol:
