    Well....that's was quick.



    I'm going to pass on Hoist(Not a fan of blue) but I'm a sucker for new characters...so I'll snag me a Medix, right as I see him!:)

    I try not to rip on Hasbro, but where is Blades? I've never seen him in stores. That said, I'm getting these guys for my son, he has them all. Except for Blades.

    Target? Hmm. My Target hardly ever has stock of the main TF lines, but I'll start checking for these RB toys. Would just like to see them in the plastic flesh. :)

    Awesome! The other bots in the line need friends.

    I still wish we had a Shockwave in this line.

    Hi, folks.

    If anyone sees these in store - please look at the packaging and see if on the cross-sell on the back it shows any new Humans in the art or any new tools.

    It looks like the figure shown with Hoist is Optimus' Partner in another colour - so I'd like to know if there's a toy release coming out like that in some way.

    Thanks.

    Found these new case assortment at my Target in Riverbank, CA.
    Picked up all 4 since my kid was missing blades from the previous release, and he has been playing Rescue Bots all morning and watching the shows I DVR'd lol

    The Human I'm wondering about is here shown on Hoist's packaging:

    As you can see here ; Medix's human sidekick isn't new it's the same one that goes with Blades :

    Human's usually are sold with tools so I'm just curious how this toy will be sold ? (and yes I do realise it's a repainted human design)

    I'd like to see the back of the box if anyone cares to show it.
