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.

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.

Thanks to Entertainment Earth, we have news that a new 4-pack of Rescue Bots that include new, more show accurate paint schemes are now available through their site! These figures are larger versions of the original Rescue Bots toys, and include the 4 original show characters, Heatwave, Boulder, Chase, and Blades. The figures feature new paint schemes meant to more closely resemble the show, and also include the weapons that came with the first round of "Energize" figures, though instead of translucent blue they are cast in a silver/gray color.

You can check out in-hand in-package images of the figures below, courtesy of site owner Seibertron, and let us know what you think of these new Rescue Bots below!

Looks like they retooled Blade's chest to remove the sculpted symbol, and strangely the original Boulder is the more accurate one.

They're still not great. If you want a show-accurate set, then I recommend going for the 4-pack (Griffin Rock Rescue Team set). We got those for my young boy and they look heaps better than these.

2x TRA RBT DRAKE THE DRAGON BOT
2x TRA RBT CHASE THE RESCUE DINOBOT

This was revealed through a listing on Entertainment Earth and wll be coming out next month. Thanks to Scotty P for letting us know.

The toys are both retailing for $19.99 Canadian dollars and $14.99 USD and they come with an accessory for the character to crash into, triggering another play feature. Like other Rescue Bot toys, these are aimed at a young audience, so the figures do not have any points of articulation and simple transformation.

Convert from vehicle mode to bot mode in 1 easy step! Flip up the Heatwave the Fire-Bot vehicle to convert it to bot mode. Flip it back down to convert it into a firetruck. Robots and humans saving the day, working together the Rescue Bots way!

Yes! This is exactly how you do that! Blowing the manhole cover is absolutely essential to the whole operation! Psst... just uh... need a small reminder on how that exactly works, thanks.

Rolling to the scene of the rescue! Yes! Whenever there is a rescue, rolling barrels provide the needed help to get the job done! It doesn't even matter what type of rescue (water, fire, storm, etc.), having barrels to roll will always prove to be a necessary part of ANY rescue. That trailer wasn't carrying waste materials, right?

We recently reported on a new Transformers Rescue Bots Academy figure being listed online, and now we have two more, courtesy of Seibertronian Survivefan23. Now up on the Toywiz website are listings for Rescue Bots Academy Rescan Wedge and Hot Shot! These are mid-sized transforming figures of the two new characters, with Wedge turning into a plow and Hot Shot turning into a VTOL jet. Wedge is listed as out of stock (AKA a placeholder listing until he's released), but Hot Shot is actually available for preorder already! Check them out at the links above, and stay tuned to Eeibertron.com for more news on the new rescue bots series!!

Wedge is a head retool of Arctic Rescue Boulder, and Hot Shot an extensive retool of the Rescan class Bumblebee that turns into a VTOL jet resembling an MCU Quinjet.

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 ppotted the VTOL Hot Shot at a Walgreen's in Murrieta, CA. Also, the giant eleectroni 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?

We've found some new Transformers Rescue Bots Academy toy listings on Amazon to share with you! The first is a product that was originally listed on EE but has now found its way onto Amazon:

- Green Drake
https://www.amazon.com/Playskool-Heroes-Transformers-Rescue-Dragon-Bot/dp/B079LZQLLL/?tag=seibertron07-20&

Image

Next is a continuation of the Mega Mighties subline with Hot Shot being the first to be released as part of Rescue Bots Academy. These are non-transforming large figures in the same vein as Hasbro Titan Heroes figures in its other toylines.

- Mega Mighties Hot Shot
https://www.amazon.com/Playskool-Tra-Rbt-Hot-Shot/dp/B07FDQC8J2/?tag=seibertron07-20&

Lastly, Amazon.com are currently doing a sale on Electronic Hot Shot!
He's currently $14.99, down from $26.99

What do you think of these? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews.

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.

Its Toy Fair in New York and Seibertron is here to bring you the hottest news as it rolls off the Hasbro conveyor belt of awesome. We have another helping of galleries again – this time of Hasbro's Transformers Transformers Rescue Bots Academy. Once again head honcho Seibertron and our own Megatronus have been blitzing the displays with the camera. The main gallery is here, but some highlights are posted below as well.

First up is Hot Shot...

Then we have Whirl...

and Academy Rescue Team

I've seen the Whirl figure in stores. She is BIG! Like, taller than the original six Rescue Bots.

Medix too. His new toy is larger than his original.

Yeah that bigger Whirl (and Medix) are in stores now. My son has so many Rescan-size figures that I’m hesitant to get Whirl.

Keep Rescan scale and we’ll keep collecting.

Is that Salvage mix truck in the rescue bots academy 4 pack. The face does not look like salvage so i'm wondering if its a re-deco.

It's Whirl, Wedge, Hot Shot, and Hoist.

They're all redecos. Whirl of VTOL jet Bumblebee (her Megabots size figure is effectively an upsized version of Rescan helicopter Blades), Wedge of Salvage (Wedge's first toy was a redeco of Arctic Boulder), Hot Shot of Rock Rescue (ATV) Bumblebee (his first toy was effectively an upsized version of the same Bumblebee, while his second figure was a remold of VTOL jet Bumblebee), and Hoist is a redeco of.... Hoist - the Rescan series figure from the original Rescue Bots.

Meanwhile, hovercraft Hot Shot appears to be a remold of fireboat Heatwave, the Megabots sized Medix is functionally an upsized Rescan car mode Bumblebee. That blue redeco of racecar Heatwave -- is that Chase or Whirl? And like Hoist, ambulance Medix ia a redeco of RB Medix. The large size Wedge looks like it might be essentially an upsized Rescan bulldozer Boulder.

File this one under "things you didn't know you wanted until it existed." Autobase Aichi's blog posted new stock photos of upcoming Rescue Bots Academy figures coming to the Rescan class and it would be hard to ignore the dino-mode Grimlock that turns into a motorcycle! He was shown at Toy Fair 2019, but at the time we didn't really know what we were looking at. Yes, it's silly, but that's what makes it fun! As you would expect from Rescue Bots it's a simple figure and may not satisfy most collectors, but it does have an effective transformation. And I love that goofy grin, what a happy bike!

There's also a new Whirl race car figure in the same class alongside Brushfire, Heatwave, Bumblebee, and Chase. Plus there's new stock images of the Academy Rescue Team box set shown at Toy Fair. So what do you think of the new Grimlock trading in his bot mode for a motorcycle? Sound off in the Energon Pub forums below!

This thing is crazy enough as is, but that would just make it perfect.

I'm a little surprised this isn't green already since this is most definitely RID Grimlock and not the less kid friendly other Aligned Grimlock. I guess he's in his "Gold Armor" mode.
