We have a new Transformers Rescue Bots sighting coming at you from Mount Prospect, IL. Chase and Blades were found at a Walmart there by Seibertron. We actually got our first look at these guys a few months ago on the Hasbro website. If you are in need of a new Rescue Bots toy fix then it wouldn't hurt to head on down to your local Walmart and see if these guys are in stock. If you have a new toy sighting then use the Contact Us link at the top right hand corner and let us know so we can spread the word.

Chase has some room for improvement, but Blades actually looks pretty neat.

I got an email notification for this thread, but clicking any link to it from the email brought me to a "ERROR 404: PAGE NOT FOUND" page. Had to get here the old-fashioned way instead.

Anyway, like I said before, Blades looks superbly show-accurate in his new mold, but Chase's new mold seems more like a halfhearted attempt. And both could use a lot more paint, which is unfortunate considering how their cartoon models really aren't that super-detailed in their color schemes.

Stupid question, what's the difference between these figures and their original releases?

These are new molds that are much smaller than the originals, being the size of the Rescan figures, and are more show-accurate in their sculpting being more closely based on the cartoon models.

And they still have no working arms right?

Correct. Just like the most of the transforming figures of this line.

There's no doubt that some Seibertronians are going to be out and about doing some holiday shopping over the next week and a half. If you've got a young Rescue Bots fan on your list to tide over next week, it looks like the current is in your favor as the Transformers: Rescue Bots Epic Figure, High Tide, is out at US retail. This was found by yours truly yesterday at a Target store in Raleigh, NC for the oddball price of $10.19.

Image

These non-transforming figures aren't widely sought by collectors, but they interact with other Playskool heroes figures and accessories, so this may be a fun addition for the young fan in your life. Don't forget to contact our news team when you see sightings that haven't hit our front page yet, and as always keep your browser anchored here to Seibertron.com for all the latest.

The RB Epic figures are the only Titan Hero-esuqe figures I buy due to A) their added level of interactivity with other figures in the line via their chest cockpits, and B) their not completely lacking in painted color.

It's nice to see that some people found those new Transforming Minicon pet things - and the mini-building that also come with similar (but slightly smaller) pets - they are really cute.

The buildings are ringing up on till at $19.99 but the tiny mini-figures are coming up as $14.99 - the people buying them have been point out how this isn't consistent with other similar products and haggled this down to $4.99 though - I would guess they are suppose to be the same size /price as a RID Minicon though - 8-} so I have no idea why they got put in the system at $14.99.

My criticisms remain the same that they always are though but my general comments would be.

1) Human Articulation - The mini-figures in a playset at least really should be articulated to a better standard - for practical reasons if no other reasons it makes sense to make them able to sit down or raise their arms for the humans - and they have done this with a single Cody figure so far.

2) Paint : this seems a bit better that they have been - better than the Rescue Dinobots anyway.

3) I wish more Rescue Bot robots could raise their arms to use the tools / weapons more effectively as it stands only a tiny minority can do that properly - that shows bad cross branding in my view.

Over all though I like them - I hope they show up in the UK too.

-----

If anyone gets them I'd be interested to see a photo of the cross-sell on the back of the boxes and also any info on if the mini-building do anything or connect to each other or previous playsets at all.

It's a new year and we have new Transformers Rescue Bots toy sightings. This sighting comes to us from Target in Raleigh, NC where Twincast Podcaster ScottyP sends us images of the Griffin Rock Garage playset for $19.99 and also Drake & Servo for $14.99. The price for Drake and Servo may be a mistake since Hasbro MSRP on these guys is $4.99. If you have a new toy sighting near you, please drop us a line at Sightings@Seibertron.com with a picture of your new find. You can also check out our Toys Sighting Forum to see what other collectors near you have found.

Fellow Seibertronian Survivefan23 reached out to us with a fun discovery. He sent us a picture of the back of the recent Hook & Ladder Heatwave which shows a new reveal.

Image

That robot circled in red has never been seen before. It shares the same type of mold as Medix the Doc-Bot (shown below for reference) and Survivefan23 thinks this might be our first look at the female Rescue Bot that was teased a while ago. This could just be another toy only character (like Medix) or anther version of Medix.

Who do you think this new bot is? Let us know!

I talked with the creators of the show through their Facebook page. They wouldn't say much. They said that they think Hasbro is using the same mold. I told them they're wrong. Maybe when Toy Fair comes next month, if it does show up there, maybe someone can ask them who it is.

Why would you say its not the same mold when it clearly is?


Could be a different character but its the same mold.

I think that just comes to show that there isnt that much communication or synergy between the show creators and the toy makers. Its just another version of medix then or a toy only character, not something related to the show itself.

I own the newer versions of Chase & Blades and when I compared them to the older versions, the newer ones are a bit smaller.

This does not look like medics to me, it shares some of the same engineering, but the chest cab does not look right. I'm willing to be wrong, but to me this figures cab is a rectangular block taking up most of the chest. Whereas with medics, the cab knows with the upper part of the chest and the cab window hit around the diaphragm area. Something about the shoulders doesn't look quite right either either, but that could be the neon green paint highlighting parts that were otherwise less obvious when they were gray. As I said though, I am more than willing to be wrong, & I am trying to look at a blurry picture on a phone. Would be exciting if this was a new TV character. I realize for multiple very good reasons, RESCUE BOTS has been keeping at the cast small, but there have been several very good toys for the level of engineering going 4, that I for one would love to see a cameo of.

Via fellow Seibertronian Survivefan23 We now have pictures of the new Rescue Bot wave that features Boulder, Bumblebee, Heatwave, and Medix! These were found on Entertainment Earth, and are currently in stock! Medix appears to be sporting a brand new head sculpt while the other characters are receiving new show accurate heads. Does this mean that she is finally meant to appear in the show? Or is this just a new toy? Sound off in the comments section below with your opinion on this latest new toy.

Medix is the only new toy shown there. The other three are previously-released figures, and Heatwave is a different kind of figure altogether from the others.
