They don't even sell that pricepoint in stores anymore. This is too weird.

That's CHEATING! [-(

And I think I want one, rediculous looking tow arm and all. But I suspect aftermaret pricing for something from that long ago (I just dated myself...) is beyond what I want to pay for a pseuo Matchbox

Following on the heels of the unannounced and out of nowhere Optimus Prime Amazon.com exclusive using the Rescue Bots Hoist mold comes another new Rescue Bots remold in the form of Heatwave the Fire Bot. This toy uses the mold previously seen on Rescue Bots Medix, but features a new deco and a head more suitable for the Heatwave character.

This toy is available now on Amazon.com for $14.99 plus tax and is eligible for free 2-day shipping through Amazon Prime. Images of this new toy are mirrored below.

Why didn't they even announce these at BotCon?

And after seeing that wonderfully show-accurate headsculpt, I wish it had been used on the original Heatwave toy (regardless of how impossible that would have been).

It's weird, right? This and the OP toy just sort of showed up out of nowhere. I'm not complaining, I love the surprises - almost reminds me of back in the day when new Beast Wars stuff would hit shelves and I was so behind on Toy Fare magazine that it was brand new to me the second it hit my hands and not before.

Were they really desperate to use these molds?First Hoist as OP,now Medix as Heatwave.
The colouring is kinda weird.

P.S. Heatwave now has a beer gut!

I think they were trying to make Heatwave look like Movie Ratchet, but it does look a bit too yellow. Guess I'll see when it comes in tomorrow!

ScottyP has some fun news for Rescue Bot fans with a new sighting:

Rescue Bots Rescan Bumblebee found at a Target in Raleigh, NC for $9.99. Feels like this came out of nowhere. Others in the assortment were all in previous waves: Salvage, OP (small truck), Heatwave (boat), Blades (jet).

I've seen another picture of this thing (haven't seen it in person yet, though), and it looks like its design is like a cross between Bee's Prime and RID designs.

If they feel like remaking things perhaps they can make the Dinosaurs in a larger size - such a nice idea compromised by an almost total lack of paint and minuscule size.

Chase with clear pieces for his stega-fins would look cool -especially if he was the size of the new larger Heatwave Fire truck then they could light up too.

If they could make the Dino's larger then have maybe a place so something can ride on them that would be lots of fun.

I hope one day Hasbro will make the little figures with joints too (like they did Cody who came with the big playset) perhaps as part of a giftset.

It's a shame that they don't promote these more - I didn't even know there was going to be a Dani Figure until I tripped over her on shelves in a two pack.
