ScottyP has some fun news for Rescue Bot fans with a new sighting:

Rescue Bots Rescan Bumblebee found at a Target in Raleigh, NC for $9.99. Feels like this came out of nowhere. Others in the assortment were all in previous waves: Salvage, OP (small truck), Heatwave (boat), Blades (jet).

I've seen another picture of this thing (haven't seen it in person yet, though), and it looks like its design is like a cross between Bee's Prime and RID designs.

If they feel like remaking things perhaps they can make the Dinosaurs in a larger size - such a nice idea compromised by an almost total lack of paint and minuscule size.

Chase with clear pieces for his stega-fins would look cool -especially if he was the size of the new larger Heatwave Fire truck then they could light up too.

If they could make the Dino's larger then have maybe a place so something can ride on them that would be lots of fun.

I hope one day Hasbro will make the little figures with joints too (like they did Cody who came with the big playset) perhaps as part of a giftset.

It's a shame that they don't promote these more - I didn't even know there was going to be a Dani Figure until I tripped over her on shelves in a two pack.

It's a good thing I am over 20 years old, I am above the age requirement for this guy:

Scotty P has brought some fun new listings to our attention. Amazon now has Rescue Bots "Tunnel Rescue Drill Set" and Hellwarp "Shark Sub Capture Set" both ready to ship at 16.99$ each (with free Prime shipping). Each new listing came with a slew of pictures, of which a few can be found below. Enjoy!

I already have the figures, and the vehicles aren't worth the price on their own. They're not bad or anything, just not a must-have either.

The more and more I see about toys for this series the less I see of figures that actually transform.

That's a shame really.

Yes and no. Personally, I feel anything that is a transformer should, of course, transform. These are for the wee little ones, though, and I can personally attest that my 18 and 30 month old sons both love these things. The lack of transformation actually comes in hand as the figure stays in a shape they recognize.

Either way, in about 10 years or so, we'll probably start seeing proper Generations-style figures of these guys. If I'm still collecting by then, I'll probably get them.

:shock:

I never thought of that. Proper generations (or even masterpiece) versions would be the bees knees!! Now to wait for ten years......

Been waiting forever for these two sets to come out. I really like how the toyline is starting to produce more toys of things that were created specifically for the show by its production team instead of vice-versa. The drill is Griffin Rock's Tunnel Forger from episode 36, and the sub is the second of Dr. Morocco's sea vessels.

As for the figures themselves, Graham's the only one I could do without. My Blades has gone missing so this'll get me a new one. I could use a Morocco with better paint apps than the one I already have. And, I've already got four MorBots, so I'll gladly take a fifth one.

When it rains sightings, it certainly pours. This analogy may imply that we're getting soaked in our news cycle today, but this ain't Sea World, it's as real as it gets because now we have Rescue Bots toy sighting news to report.

Yours truly stopped in to the local Toys R US in Raleigh, NC today and spotted the Transformers: Rescue Bots High Tide Rescue Rig, as well as the Tunnel Rescue Drill Set and Shark Sub Capture Set previously only known to be available on Amazon.

It'll run you $29.99 plus tax to party it up on High Tide's boat, and the Rescue Drill and Shark Sub were too busy flipping burgers so I didn't scan them to get the price, but it's likely comparable to Amazon. Probably.

If you see any new toys at retail that we haven't made a news post about yet, and they're still, well, new, be sure to let our News Crew know here, and if you see these particular toys locally be sure to let your fellow collectors know in your local Sightings Thread

Sadly, I've heard that such a day will likely be a long time coming.

I'm just hoping we at least get a transforming version of High Tide's super mode before it's all over. Not that I'm dissing the current High Tide toy, I'd just like one that does that particular thing.

It's been a while since we have had some new Transformers Rescue Bots toy news. Thanks to the Hasbro.com, we have the first looks at the new Chase The Police-Bot and Blades The Flight-Bot and also Mr. Potato Head Heatwave The Fire-Bot and Mr. Potato Head Boulder The Construction-Bot in-package shots. Look for these to be release soon.

Blades appears to be sculpted more show-accurately. Chase, on the other hand...


Both could use more paint apps as well.

Probably not Masterpiece, since Takara handles those and I don't think Rescue Bots airs in Japan.

But if they did make Masterpiece Rescue Bots, I'd be hoping for Energize Gear and Burnses (or Greenes) that can drive them

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.
