While we have seen, and from various angles, pretty much all of the Transformers Rescue Bots figures back at New York Toy Fair 2018, we have news of the Optimus Prime dinosaur mode toy appearing on online retailer Hasbro Toy Shop, thanks to a tip from fellow Seibertronian Hellscream9999.

Officially called Knight Watch Optimus Prime, the toy is currently available in stock for purchase online. As staff has pointed out, with the closure of Toys R Us, several new sightings of lines such as Rescue Bots will indeed first appear online rather than in stores - but! if you come across any new item, make sure to flag it in the Sightings Database and drop a line in the regional Sightings section!

PLAYSKOOL HEROES TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS KNIGHT WATCH OPTIMUS PRIME Set
(HASBRO/ Ages 3-7 years/Approx. Retail Price: $24.99/ Available: Spring 2018
Little heroes can imagine helping KNIGHT WATCH OPTIMUS PRIME save the day in medieval times! Kids
can pretend to march into battle with OPTIMUS PRIME as a heroic knight, wielding the two MINI-CON
figures as a shield and lance. The KNIGHT WATCH OPTIMUS PRIME figure and his MINI-CONS are
designed with easy-2-do conversion, so kids can easily convert from knight to T-Rex with one simple step
as they race to the rescue! The MINI-CON figures also convert into a stegosaurus and a velociraptor for
an even bigger adventure! Look for other PLAYSKOOL HEROES TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS figures to
build your own rescue team! (Each sold separately.)

Includes KNIGHT WATCH OPTIMUS PRIME figure
and SCALE THE SHIELD-BOT and LANCE THE RAPTOR-BOT MINI-CON figures. Available at most major toy
retailers nationwide and HasbroToyShop.com.

That red one looks more like an Anklyosaur, not a Stegosaurus :-?

Yeah, that description is off.

Kinda like how that Power Core Combiners Grimstone toy was mislabeled as a Triceratops instead of the Styracosaurus that he was, or his his Dimetrodon drone was mislabeled as a Spinosaurus.

I don't see him on HST. Not even sold out or anything, just not listed at all. Can someone provide a link?

Each image is a link to the page. However, that page has since been taken down, so clicking the image takes you no where.

And now he magically is back up. Almost as if they didn't want people to take advantage of the 25% off one item sale...

Courtesy of staff member and Twincast Podcast host ScottyP, we have a sighting for some Transformers Rescue Bots figures from the bigger size of the recent Playskool Heroes line: Quick Dig Boulder and Epic Optimus Prime (modest, much?)!

Both were spotted in Cary, North Carolina, and the Target store there, with Boulder running at 19.99 USD and Optimus Prime much cheaper, at 9.99 USD - which is expected, given the fact that the former can transform (with an easy to do conversion!) and the latter does not. If you come across these or any other Transformers figures, make sure to use the Sightings Database tool to help out other fans, and browse through our regional sightings board section too!

I love this Boulder toy. He's huge for a $20 toy. Total brick house, but in a good way.

What's more is this is the second toy to be called "Epic Optimus Prime". The first was two feet tall, even. :P

The irony of the second Epic Optimus Prime figure being pint-sized compared to the first. :P

Two brand new Transformers Rescue Bots toys have been listed on Amazon.com. Figures of Optimus Prime and Heatwave appear on the site as available for purchase. These appear to be very similar to the rest of the Rescue Bots line in terms of how they transform. We can tell that these will be simple and fun toys for kids. In the images below you will notice that Heatwave transforms into a indy race car rather than his usual firetruck mode. Have a look and tell us what you think.

If you enjoy Rescue Bots you should check out the new show that is coming out this fall!

Well, I guess if Red Alert gets to be a fire chief's Lamborghini, then Heatwave can be a race car too. Fun looking toys BTW ;)^
