Does anyone remember one of the toy shows they showed a reissue of the previous larger Rescue bots (not the smaller ones) I remember noticing as it was the 1st time there had been chase that size with the blue colouring that didn't have the clear pieces as well.

Did they ever get released at retail. ?

Though i'd ask as this boxed set reminded me.

As for the above set if they are just repacks it's likely cheaper to buy the Rescue bots in the two for £15.00 deals for a UKSTER

I saw this at Target probably a month ago in Dallas, TX.

They were spotted in Asia, but nowhere else as far as I can tell.

Has anyone tried using the Old Rescue Bots playsets with the new ones - for example The Griffon Rock Firestation set with the Optimus Prime Fire Station set ?

Oh man! Such a missed opportunity to finally give Blades a toy of his scoop claw.

Can't wait to see what Brushfire looks like. I wonder if he'll debut in Season 5.

It just hit me. The gray and red color scheme of the Megabot Optimus reminds me of his upgraded form from the season 1 finale/season 2 of RID 2015.

There is a new unknown Rescue Bots rescan figure with an ATV alt mode found in the "crane" of Rescue Bots Megabots Copter Crane Blades on the back of his package. It seems to be a transforming figure. What do you make of it? Here are some images of the back of the box and the asterix next to the toy states that the figure is to be sold seperately.

It makes me of Sureshock from Armada/Energon. If that's who it is, then it's homage of the year.

If not, I'd guess Cliffjumper, namely because I'm crazy.

It's color scheme looks like Servo's deco.
