SDCC 2018 revealed that we would be getting new Transformers blind bags from Hasbro, specifically from Rescue Bots. Only a few bots were shown on display but now that they have been found in both the US and Canadian Walmarts. The assortment includes 2 of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Heatwave, Blades, Chase, Boulder, Blurr, and Quickshadow. The arms seem to be interchangeable between the two models. These blind bags are $2.88 in the US and $4.94 in Canada.

There is a generous window in the back where you can get a pretty good idea as to which character you are getting.You can always feel around the bag to know which version it is due to the different accessories yielded between the same characters.

Poor guy always seems to get the short end of the stick. Even in the show itself, he got basically no screen time compared to Blurr, Quickshadow, or even High Tide.

The new Transformers: Rescue Bots "blind bags" are out and while they are non transforming, they did have the semblance of a gimmick. Now, thanks to netkid, who posted in hand images on the TFW boards, we have a good look at the arm swapping gimmick this set promotes.

[quote]I have both Primes and Blades(I haven't opened him yet).

Boxes have 1 of each figure. Both figures of a character is the same design but each are in a uniquely sculpted pose, so swapping arms between them to get different poses/looks is encouraged.

Each bag has a small clear window to see what figure is inside, if you are looking for a particular one.[/quote]

That... uh, that is a Heavy Duty Vegetation Trimmer. Useful for times when the People of Griffen Rock foeget why super charging Miracle Grow is a bad idea, like the Sky Forest Fiasco...

It's a letter opener. On weekends he volunteers at the local nursing home and reads the old folks their mail.

I think you can swap arms across the line with different characters.

It looks like if you made a nice straight and clean cut in the middle of that "arm bar" you would end up with a pair of slightly more pose-able arms, and have more arm mixing options. Which might lead to some fun/interesting combinations.
