Toy News: "Rescue Bots Academy" Electronic Hot Shot and Blind Bag Figures listed on Amazon
While Transformers fans have been giving a heavy focus to the upcoming "Bumblebee" Movie, Studio Series, Cyberverse and Generations in their collecting news, the "Rescue Bots" corner of the Transformers world has been fairly quiet. "Rescue Bots Academy" was revealed last year and a trailer was released earlier this year.
Now thanks to Amazon, we have official stock photography of several newly listed items. The biggest is "Electronic Hot Shot", who transforms from an off-road vehicle to a robot based on the "Armada" character of the same name. Here is the product description:
"Imagine helping Hot Shot race to the rescue as a rugged off-road vehicle! Sized right for small hands, kids can convert the Electronic Hot Shot figure from bot mode to vehicle mode and back again with 1-step Easy 2 Do conversion. Both vehicle and bot modes feature electronic lights, sounds effects, and phrases! Robots and humans saving the day, working together the Rescue Bots way! Manufactured under license from TOMY Company, Ltd. Transformers Rescue Bots is a trademark and copyright of Hasbro."
Also listed are several "blind bag" figures featuring "Rescue Bots" characters. The general description for them says:
"Robots and humans saving the day, working together the Rescue Bots way! Kids can give their favorite Transformer Rescue Bots Academy figures a heroic boost with the Playskool Heroes power up arms! These removable arms snap on and off and include cool features, such as Chase the Police-Bots capture claw and Heatwave the Fire-Bots fire axe. For more excitement, each figure comes inside a blind bag, so kids won't know which figure is inside until opened! With multiple characters and unique figures, younger heroes can look for them all! Styles may vary!"
