    New Playskool Rescue Bots found

    I do not know if this has been reported yet, but I was at my local TRU this morning in Frederick and they had just put out the following Rescue Bot items, in the PRESCHOOL aisles, not the Transformers section

    Rescue Bots Electronic Series Wave 1 @ $24.99 each
    Transforming Heatwave w/ Cody Burns
    Transforming Chase w/ Jack Tracker

    Plus these for $5.99 each (I think)
    Jack Tracker & Jet Pack
    Coby Burns & Rescue Axe
    Chief Charle Burns & Rescue Cutter

    and a couple of others. Since I wanted the Prime and Bumblebee, I passed on these, so no pictures (I will try to go back tonight with my camera)

    On my way down to Orlando I stopped off I. Cartersville, GA and found what appears to be wave 1 of two optimus primes a bumblebee and heatwave at a kmart. Price appears to be 11.99. I'll figure out how to upload pics later.

    If this is old news please lock. I didn't see anything in the sightings thread.

    Target's Rescue Bots will be going out the week of July 31, along with a lot of Kreo stuff. We have a little bit out now, but a lot more is still in the back.

    Nope. But it is bad if you don't want optimus.

    Not great business sense, that. Prime isn't aimed at little kids like these are. With Dark of the Moon in theaters, this is the perfect time to have the "young audiences" assortment out to capture a whole new generation of fans.

    It makes financial sense to do so, really and truly.

    So do they show up in the Transformer/Action Figure sections of stores or in the super-kiddie section like with tonka and stuff?

    I really like the designs, I just wish they were more Scout class and better articulated. As is I think I have to pass.
