We have quite a bit of Rescue Bots news for you today. These are all related to the new Rescue Bots Academy toyline. It is very much the same complexity and design as previous Rescue Bots toys but we do have different toys and characters. Hot Shot is a main character now and this week we not only have one but two sightings to report. Fellow Seibertronian Rysquad spotted the VTOL Hot Shot at a Walgreen's in Murrieta, CA. Also, the giant electronic Hot Shot was found in the Michigan area at a Kmart. You can also order it from the Kmart site here. It is $25 USD.

In other Rescue Bots Academy news we have a new Optimus with Trailer. And this trailer has a launch feature where you can place a flip racer upright (in robot mode) and then launch them in vehicle mode. This is the first time we were made aware of the product, thanks to a listing on Entertainment Earth. The toy is priced at $20.99 and is set for release in Janruary.

Saw that electronic Hot Shot at Kmart myself today, thought it had already been sighted. Thought about getting it since I had enough points earned to get it for free, but I ended up getting my nephew a $40 Lego set for $16~ for Christmas instead. Incidentally it was the Stormbringer dragon set, hows that for a lost (or at least missed opportunity) Hasbro trademark?

It's been a while since we've had Rescue Bots news! Our very own Seibertron has spotted some brand new Rescue Bots Academy figures. Over at a Target in Rosemont, IL he found the larger changing figures of Whirl and Medix, but Hot Shot seems to have sold out (though we already have a sighting of him). At this same Target we also got a first look at Mega Mighties Hot Shot and Bumblebee in the wilds.

Meanwhile, at a Des Plaines, IL Kmart he also found the latest Rescan-sized Wedge figures. Wedge has also shown up on Amazon as well as Salvage which is currently sitting at a markup.
