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.

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.

Someone spotted Medix & the new Boulder in a Toys R Us in Texas. I saw Medix's face. She has Blades's mouth plate.

When did we find out Medix was female? I missed it.

And wouldn't that Medix likely be a new mold rather than a retool, since the first was at the original, larger size, while this would be one of the current, smaller type?

There's been no confirmation. Just some word that season 4 will have a female Rescue Bot and folks suspecting it to be Medix (which I and others hope isn't the case since the female being the medic of her team is very stereotypical and cliche; and since Blades is already that team's medic).

Why does Medix have a new head?


Since we know now that Medix is not the new female Rescue bot what's the point of making a new Medix toy?

The new Boulder is his original body instead of the dump truck, in the smaller "Rescan" class size.

The new Medix is the smaller "Rescan" version. I'm assuming we'll get Hoist as well now.

The Optimus toy is just a repaint of the robot from the Trailer + Cab set that came out a few years ago. Probably just to keep an Optimus on the shelves!

Well, that was more rhetorical than anything, but that's nice to know actually :-?

High Tide's leg's are an ugly, cheap-looking, hollow mess, but his homage to Omega Supreme and under-$30.00 price make him a definite maybe. A transparent-blue visor/face-shield and better articulation on the claw-arms would have been welcome, and too bad he doesn't actually float, either. He would have made a fun tub-toy, or swimming-pool toy for the kids. Since I first saw this, I thought Hide Tide's Omega Supreme mode would have made a great design for a large playset. He could have been as large as the Imaginext Batcave or MegaZord sets and included lights, sounds/speech fx and room for the Deluxes or mini-fig Burns family. Oh Hasbro, not another missed opportunity for awesomeness... :(

Is the Optimus the same enlarged mold from the trailer set, or is it even larger? If so, it could have at least not had such such simple painted-on fingers/hands; even the early Rescue Hero Prime had pop-out fists. These are for children, yes, but kids have standards too. :roll:

Boulder looks like he's a basically unchanged downscaling of his original figure. Not a bad thing, though; his first toy matches his cartoon appearance quite well and hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I'd be pleasantly surprised if at some point we got a High Tide that combines with the ship like he does on the show, but for now I guess I'll take what I can get.

What was the point of making the first Medix toy?
