Live from the Hasbro floor at San Diego Comic Con, we have our next round of reveal from the Transformers Rescue Bots line! We learn of upcoming blind bag figures similar to the Tiny Titans we got in the Robots in Disguise line. The highlight is a new big bumblebee toy that can interact with a smaller blue bot. We also see a dog robot in a ravage inspired deco along with more flip bots. If you spot other new items, please share it on the boards. This is just the preview night so we will probably get more from Rescue Bots as SDCC continues so keep and eye out on the site!

The Two Dogs are Bumblebee's Partners - the official images of these were previously released.

I wonder if he oil drums and fire hydrant has something to do with the flipbots.

The radial Plane Optimus is unusual as is the Bumblebee Monster Truck - never actually seen a flip bot for sale however so I wouldn't know what was new - they'd all be new to me.

Heatwave racer was spotted a while back but he seems very poorly distributed - but perhaps the refresh wave with blades in will make him more available - there is a brand new Optimus Truck in that wave too that no one seems to notice is new too.

I expect that new Bee to ship soon as he screams X-Mas toy (more than Likely he will be in the new Argos Catalogue)

The radial plane Optimus was allegedly released earlier as part of the Griffin Rock Extreme Team set. However, I don't know if it was ever actually for sale. I never saw it in any stores, nor in stock online. So hopefully we can actually get our hands on this mold now.

Really thought they'd show something from "My Rescue Bots Academia" by now.

I think you've just conflated "My Transformers: Rescue Bots Adventure" and "Rescue Bots Academy".

To be honest, if there's a character in Rescue Bots Academy that's even half as sweet as Uraraka, you can count me all-in on this show.

Thanks to a sighting from our very own Podmaster of the Podcasters ScottyP, we have a new sighting for a unique toy with one of the greatest names in Transformers history. The new toy in question is Rescue Bots Bumblebee Rescue Guard with his little pals Growler the K-9 bot, and Sergeant Slobber(!!). This set of figures was spotted at the Target in Apex, North Carolina for the price of $29.99. With as long as Rescue Bots has been going, and with the way it plans to keep going thanks to toys and the new Rescue Bots Academy set to come out, it is really cool to see new toys and new character keep finding their way to us.

Of note with this new figure, these are not your normal Rescue Bot sized figure. ScottyP took note of the face that Growler and Sergeant Slobber are about twice the size of the normal Rescue Bots minicons, so these are toys with some mass to them.

Check out the image below, and let us know if you intend to hunt down these Rescue Bots!

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.

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.


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.

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...

Yeah...

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.
