I'd really like to see some of these guys done up in the Generations Line. Maybe in 5 years or so when the little ones grow up a bit more and want toys from their formative years.
Re: Toy Fair US 2015 Coverage - Transformers: Rescue Bots Product Descriptions and Images (1650697)
Posted by gothsaurus on February 13th, 2015 @ 2:34pm CST
I actually REALLY like that idea. In the same way we got a Lockdown in Generations, I'd love to see some of these characters. Maybe the main four. Heck, I'd also love to see a G1 Bulkhead for Generations... or maybe even out of the G1 Grapple mold or something. (?)

Either way, solid idea. The show is actually pretty watchable ... very story-based instead of just fighting fighting fighting lasers lasers!!! Or loads of new character introduction episodes. It definitely draws you into the little town, human characters, small cast... Makes me want grown up versions of those four robots.

At BotCon 2014, me and the guys I was hanging out with had lunch with two members of the current Hasbro TF design team. I believe they were Ben Montano and Lanny Panzica. During the lunch, we got talking about things we'd never ever expect Hasbro to ever make, and I brought up the idea of "show-accurate, fully articulated, regular style Deluxe or Voyager versions of the Rescue Bots," and the two of them were like "Now, wait, hold on sec!" They didn't see that idea as much of an impossibility as I suggested it would be, and gave a convincing argument for why Hasbro would be willing to make those kinds of toys, but at some point further down the road in the future rather than any time soon.

They based their logic on how kids who grew up on Beast Wars and Armada are showing interest in the Generations toys for Waspinator/Rhinox/Rattrap and Armada Starscream, and so rationalized that kids who grow up on Rescue Bots now would similarly show a likely interest in getting better toy versions of those characters when they get older, based on that same kind of nostalgia that those who grew up on Beast Wars and Armada display for the Generations toys of those series' characters.

So, yeah, they are well aware of the demand for something like Generations toys for the Rescue Bots, but feel they would do better for not just the collectors of today but for kids of today as well when those kids grow up and graduate into the more advanced lines in the years to come, to better capitalize on the nostalgia they (and we adult fans of the show) would come to have. So if we do ever get Generations Rescue Bots, they'll probably come along in the not-too-near future. But better later than never at all.

Is it just me, or doest it seem like High Tide on the show will be the whole boat and not just the mini-sub> And if so, why are we not getting a transforming version of that?

Why dont they just introduce Decepticons to the rescue bots line already ? They could make them bumbling idiots, buffoons, bullies, etc. How many forest fires can you stop before kids get bored to tears ?

Why would you want idiotic Decepticons? Wouldn't that defeat the whole point of them being decent threats?

Honestly, I think that is exactly why Rescue Bots is successful... no Decepticons. That equals no war, fighting, stealing, lying, back-stabbing... it leaves the series open for some interesting, human, story-based episodes. Great storytelling makes Rescue Bots a really solid show in my opinion, even as a grown-up. I think introducing Decepticons would take it in a darker direction... much less accessible and pleasant for young kids.
Re: Toy Fair US 2015 Coverage - Transformers: Rescue Bots Product Descriptions and Images (1652458)
Posted by Sabrblade on February 17th, 2015 @ 11:01am CST
Even without Decepticons, the antagonists the show's already got are more than competent enough to not only be credible threats but to also up the scales when necessary and to enhance the compelling nature of the story.

After all, one of the show's unspoken rules is "No stupid characters," meaning no idiots. They don't want to bring in Decepticons if they have to make them a bunch of incompetent morons, as that's no fun.

Posted by gothsaurus on February 17th, 2015 @ 11:33am CST
I totally agree with Sabrblade, here. While it's a kid show, there are no bumbling doofus toady characters... which oddly makes the whole thing come across as more mature than MOST of the other recent shows. I'm completely against adding dumb characters as an excuse to soften the bad guys.

I'm thinking that may be the achilles heel of the new RID show for me. Doubting I will be able to relate enough to warrant my buying any of the toys. Seems too Power Rangers for me to enjoy... tho I WILL give it a chance, of course.

Not just recent shows, but most children's cartoons in general. Even more than some of the other TF series.

We'll have to wait and see how smart the RID Cons are. From what little we've seen, Steeljaw at least seems to be intelligent and competent enough.

Though, there is also the other end of the spectrum with characters who are dumb but are legitimately funny and endearing. The 2001 RiD cartoon, for instance, had fan favorite Sky-Byte, as well as the Predacon trio. Those guys had failures that were legendary, and yet were cheeky and charming enough to put a smile on many-a-fan's faces. But, at the same time, none of them were legit idiots (as in, none were intellectually deficient), just poor planners and the victims of going up against mostly superior Autobot enemies.

And about the Power Rangers bit, an "enemy of the week" format doesn't negate plot progression or character intrigue. Animated used that format and that show turned out fine.

Seriously, why do they not seem to be making a boat-to-robot High Tide rather than just the mini-sub that comes with the playset?

*sigh* Mayor Luskey is an odd case. He's not completely unintelligent nor is he mentally deficient, but he has made a lot of poor (sometimes bad) decisions. When the show makers talked about the show's lack of stupid characters, they used Homer Simpson as an example of what they meant. And in a way, they're right. Mayor Luskey isn't that kind of character. He isn't a bumbling comic relief doofus whose sole existence is to do stupid stuff for humorous effect, as he is capable of being competent and doing what's right. It's just that either circumstances beyond his control or his own character flaws have made him a victim of misfortune time and time again. In a way, he's kinda like Sky-Byte, who likewise wasn't an unintelligent doofus but had enough character flaws to always find himself in a bad situation either caused by his own mistakes or by those who took advantage of him.

I guess, when we take the mayor into consideration, there's two kinds of stupidity. The kind found in such characters as Homer Simpson, Peter Griffin, Patrick Star, and Stimpy, and the kind found in Mayor Luskey and Sky-Byte.

Point taken. I guess it would be more fair to say Mayor Luskey has bad judgement. He's not an idiot, he just has a spectacular talent for picking the wrong aspects of a situation to base a decision on.

Probably something for the parents on the boards and readers - notified by fellow Seibertron.com member ScottyP, we have a sighting of a clearance sale for the Playskool Heroes Transformers Rescue Bots Titans, including Boulder, Chase and Heatwave, for $5 at Toys'R'Us stores (this one in Raleigh, NC)! Good Easter filler gifts, if you're looking for something. Check out the photo below!

But then you can't put the pilots inside the cockpits with all that gooey shampoo in the way.

It's the reason I picked up these particular ones since they actually have interactive playability with other, smaller-sized toys of the line. Not to mention an actually good amount of paint apps and sculpted detail. All they need are some knees and elbows and they'd be fairly good action figures.

We don't know much about toy and this design of Optimus Prime has not appeared in the comics before. But this figure does look like a remold of Rescue Bots Hoist!

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.

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.

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.

It's a good thing I am over 20 years old, I am above the age requirement for this guy:

Scotty P has brought some fun new listings to our attention. Amazon now has Rescue Bots "Tunnel Rescue Drill Set" and Hellwarp "Shark Sub Capture Set" both ready to ship at 16.99$ each (with free Prime shipping). Each new listing came with a slew of pictures, of which a few can be found below. Enjoy!

I already have the figures, and the vehicles aren't worth the price on their own. They're not bad or anything, just not a must-have either.

The more and more I see about toys for this series the less I see of figures that actually transform.

That's a shame really.
