New Rescue Bots toys – Dragon Heatwave, Knight Watch Bumblebee, Silverback the Gorilla-Bot, and more!
The cartoon may be over, but the Rescue Bots line is still going strong, as evidenced by a set of new toys that seem to have slipped under the radar, including both redecos and several new molds! Much of the line has a theme of dragons and dinosaurs, an evident tie-in to the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight movie.
New toys found include:
- Silverback the Gorilla-Bot, a new simian Mini-Con that converts into a jackhammer;
- Heatwave the Fire-Bot, a new mold that turns into a Doublecross-esque two-headed dragon;
- Bumblebee, another new mold converting into a VTOL jet;
- Knight Watch Bumblebee, a new toy that transforms into a dragon and comes with two dragon Mini-Cons that form an axe;
- Redecoes of the existing Optimus Prime and Bumblebee Dinobot toys in fetching blue and black color schemes, respectively;
- And Playskool Heroes Quickshadow, a non-transforming rendition of the female Autobot spy.
Clearly, the Rescue Bots franchise has legs even without a TV show to support it!
