As most Transformers fans know, Rescue Bots is Hasbro's line of Transformer toys and media meant for the preschool/kindergarten crowd- in the case of the toys, it meant simple (and in most cases, automorph) style transformations. While the cartoon ended last year, the toyline is still going on, as evidenced by the latest sightings, from Seibertron's very own ScottyP and ScottimusPrime; the latter of whom who has sent us the photographic evidence below. ScottimusPrime sent us his sighting from a Walmart in East Setauket, New York, and ScottyP sent us his sighting from a ToysЯUs in Cary, North Carolina. This would suggest that most regular big-box retailers will be carrying this particular wave. If you're a Rescue Bots fan, but don't plan on hunting for these, at least one of our sponsors, Big Bad Toy Store, has them up for preorder.

If you have any sightings of new figures, please let us know with a quick email to news@seibertron.com, with a photo of said sighting attached. Thanks to ScottyP and ScottimusPrime for the heads up!

Interestingly, I didn't notice this until after it was posted, but that Optimus figure in this wave looks very Hot Spot-ish, deco-wise.

My son grew up on the Rescue Bots. I hope when he gets older, there will be Generations versions of Heatwave, Blades (Protectobot Blades probably doesn't count), Chase, and Boulder.

This one comes as a bit of a surprise! Boss-bot Seibertron himself has found (in Rolling Meadows, IL) a single-packed toy of Chase the Police-Bot, hailing from Rescue Bots Rescan line, that hasn't been seen before - at least, not on his own. This figure has seen retail release before, but only as part of the larger Capture Claw Chase set. The fact that he is now making an appearance on his lonesome - with very little fanfare, to boot - is quite the point of interest. Figures that were previously part of a larger toy don't often see later release without their sizable accompaniments, so this is quite the rare phenomenon on that count!

Have you seen this minor anomaly of a toy in the wild? If you have, let us know below, and in the sightings section too! And if you've seen his larger Capture Claw counterpart, feel free to add your find that to its own sightings page as well. And as always, stay tuned for more Transformers news - big or small - from Seibertron.com!

Hook and Ladder Heatwave is also a similar situation in that the Hook and Ladder Heatwave was released without his trailer but not individually. It's the same Heatwave from the Griffin Rock Rescue Team Set four-pack that also included the essentially re-releases of Rescan Blades, Boulder, and Chase.

I also saw the regular scale rescan of Chase as a stegosaurus.
