Wedge is a head retool of Arctic Rescue Boulder, and Hot Shot an extensive retool of the Rescan class Bumblebee that turns into a VTOL jet resembling an MCU Quinjet.

We have quite a bit of Rescue Bots news for you today. These are all related to the new Rescue Bots Academy toyline. It is very much the same complexity and design as previous Rescue Bots toys but we do have different toys and characters. Hot Shot is a main character now and this week we not only have one but two sightings to report. Fellow Seibertronian Rysquad ppotted the VTOL Hot Shot at a Walgreen's in Murrieta, CA. Also, the giant eleectroni Hot Shot was found in the Michigan area at a Kmart. You can also order it from the Kmart site here. It is $25 USD.

In other Rescue Bots Academy news we have a new Optimus with Trailer. And this trailer has a launch feature where you can place a flip racer upright (in robot mode) and then launch them in vehicle mode. This is the first time we were made aware of the product, thanks to a listing on Entertainment Earth. The toy is priced at $20.99 and is set for release in Janruary.

Saw that electronic Hot Shot at Kmart myself today, thought it had already been sighted. Thought about getting it since I had enough points earned to get it for free, but I ended up getting my nephew a $40 Lego set for $16~ for Christmas instead. Incidentally it was the Stormbringer dragon set, hows that for a lost (or at least missed opportunity) Hasbro trademark?

We've found some new Transformers Rescue Bots Academy toy listings on Amazon to share with you! The first is a product that was originally listed on EE but has now found its way onto Amazon:

Next is a continuation of the Mega Mighties subline with Hot Shot being the first to be released as part of Rescue Bots Academy. These are non-transforming large figures in the same vein as Hasbro Titan Heroes figures in its other toylines.

It's been a while since we've had Rescue Bots news! Our very own Seibertron has spotted some brand new Rescue Bots Academy figures. Over at a Target in Rosemont, IL he found the larger changing figures of Whirl and Medix, but Hot Shot seems to have sold out (though we already have a sighting of him). At this same Target we also got a first look at Mega Mighties Hot Shot and Bumblebee in the wilds.

Meanwhile, at a Des Plaines, IL Kmart he also found the latest Rescan-sized Wedge figures. Wedge has also shown up on Amazon as well as Salvage which is currently sitting at a markup.

Its Toy Fair in New York and Seibertron is here to bring you the hottest news as it rolls off the Hasbro conveyor belt of awesome. We have another helping of galleries again – this time of Hasbro's Transformers Transformers Rescue Bots Academy. Once again head honcho Seibertron and our own Megatronus have been blitzing the displays with the camera. The main gallery is here, but some highlights are posted below as well.

First up is Hot Shot...

Then we have Whirl...

and Academy Rescue Team

I've seen the Whirl figure in stores. She is BIG! Like, taller than the original six Rescue Bots.

Medix too. His new toy is larger than his original.

Yeah that bigger Whirl (and Medix) are in stores now. My son has so many Rescan-size figures that I’m hesitant to get Whirl.

Keep Rescan scale and we’ll keep collecting.

Is that Salvage mix truck in the rescue bots academy 4 pack. The face does not look like salvage so i'm wondering if its a re-deco.

It's Whirl, Wedge, Hot Shot, and Hoist.

They're all redecos. Whirl of VTOL jet Bumblebee (her Megabots size figure is effectively an upsized version of Rescan helicopter Blades), Wedge of Salvage (Wedge's first toy was a redeco of Arctic Boulder), Hot Shot of Rock Rescue (ATV) Bumblebee (his first toy was effectively an upsized version of the same Bumblebee, while his second figure was a remold of VTOL jet Bumblebee), and Hoist is a redeco of.... Hoist - the Rescan series figure from the original Rescue Bots.

Meanwhile, hovercraft Hot Shot appears to be a remold of fireboat Heatwave, the Megabots sized Medix is functionally an upsized Rescan car mode Bumblebee. That blue redeco of racecar Heatwave -- is that Chase or Whirl? And like Hoist, ambulance Medix ia a redeco of RB Medix. The large size Wedge looks like it might be essentially an upsized Rescan bulldozer Boulder.

File this one under "things you didn't know you wanted until it existed." Autobase Aichi's blog posted new stock photos of upcoming Rescue Bots Academy figures coming to the Rescan class and it would be hard to ignore the dino-mode Grimlock that turns into a motorcycle! He was shown at Toy Fair 2019, but at the time we didn't really know what we were looking at. Yes, it's silly, but that's what makes it fun! As you would expect from Rescue Bots it's a simple figure and may not satisfy most collectors, but it does have an effective transformation. And I love that goofy grin, what a happy bike!

There's also a new Whirl race car figure in the same class alongside Brushfire, Heatwave, Bumblebee, and Chase. Plus there's new stock images of the Academy Rescue Team box set shown at Toy Fair. So what do you think of the new Grimlock trading in his bot mode for a motorcycle? Sound off in the Energon Pub forums below!

This thing is crazy enough as is, but that would just make it perfect.

I'm a little surprised this isn't green already since this is most definitely RID Grimlock and not the less kid friendly other Aligned Grimlock. I guess he's in his "Gold Armor" mode.

What makes you so sure this is RID Grimlock? Cyberverse has a kid friendly grimlock at the moment.

Because RID and Rescue Bots are part of the same continuity and Cyberverse isn't. Aligned continuity is a strange animal.

And now I'm worried that they'll make Aligned continuity even more confusing by having Grimlock show up in the RBA cartoon acting like Cyberverse Grimock rather than RiD Grimlock.
