Transformers Rescue Bots Elite Rescue Heatwave showed up a few days ago on HasbroToyShop.com and was found at retail earlier tonight at Target in Rosemont, IL by Seibertron himself.

He gave us some in hand images which include our first look at Elite Rescue Salvage, found on the back of the card.

As you can see from the comparison shot, these seem to be upscaled versions of the first year figures such as Heatwave the Fire-Bot with new alt modes and a slightly more complex transformation.

Saw one at Target today, myself. Won't buy it unless it makes its way into the show, though.

Pass. As a parent I am done buying rescue bots after I find rescan Boulder and Chase. These "reissues" are getting stupid. I might pick up the new bot though. Depending on cost.


I noticed last month that Hasbro reissued the original Hoist and Medix, which was great as I picked them up for $10, after selling my first set on ebay about a year or so ago for about $100 each!

I saw them at Target a few weeks ago. I passed at the time because I was already buying about $40 worth of toys and had to cut my trip down. And the fact that Meijer and Walmart still have the price point of $7.99 while Target has always been 9.99 each. I figured I would wait untikl I see them there. I hate it when you go weeks without finding squat, and then all the sudden everything shows up at once... :)

Reissues like the rescans, the dinos, these new ones......new characters are in order. That is why I might pick up Salvage, and was glad to see Medix and Hoist reissued.

I forgot. Was looking for something else when I found it, so I didn't check the price. :oops:

They keep making new toys of the main four since those guys are in the show. They're trying to milk their popularity as they always do with popular characters.

I wager it is $14.99, but it could be more. I am actually going there to day on my lunch break, so I will look then. If they have Salvage I might grab it.

I guess he means that they look like upscaled version of previously released toys.

I understand, but they should release a few new characters every year or so. I like that they are not overloaded with characters, but adding a new bot every year or so would be better. With this line we have had five reduxes for the same six characters. Two of which barely are in the show, which I am happy about. BB and Optimus are cool and all, but geez.....

Yes. We had the first set, the Energized, and these, which are basically the same molds, and then the dinos and the rescans, which were at least different to a certain extent.

At least they threw a new bot in there with Salvage.

Not true. This new Heatwave is much bigger than the original (roughly the size of the old nontransforming Electronic figures, or the big Optimus that came with the Rescue Trailer), turns into a very different-looking fire truck, and has a completely different transformation scheme.

Not to mention that we are getting a new character (whether or not he'll be in the show is another issue).

Image

And this Heatwave is a new mold, priced at $19.99 that is considerably larger than even the larger first 2 years of Rescue Bots as shown in this picture. Masterpiece Soundwave should demonstrate the considerable size difference along with Medix.

Man, I really need to do a Rescue Bots gallery marathon to get that line current in our galleries.

It is a retool of the original, up scaled. No different than they did with Chromia with Prime Arcee.

Energized and the originals were the EXACT same molds with clear parts. The point is it is the same old figures being released over and over. They are starting to put the ROTF line to shame....

$20 price point? Ouch. It is BIG though. Maybe seeing them in person will help with the price.

If so, I will only get Salvage. My boys don't need yet another Heatwave.

WTF?? Did they hear me or what??

Now, I am officially happy. Better if it had a new name, but I will take it! :D

Awwww. Come on. Salvage should be in Junkion colors.

Put out a repaint and I'll buy it no questions asked. Same for all the other oddly colored dump trucks.

Same goes for all the motorcycles.
