    Didn't see a thread on this neat little gem. Amongst the huge Hasbro reveals was the humble Rescue Bots Beam Box ($49.99), an interactive preschool game that beams figures of the 6 main Rescue Bots characters into a fun minigame-filled experience.

    Video from Seibertron (Seems nobody else got such a comprehensive view or knows anything about it):

    Never played Skylanders but I hope this does well and they expand on it. So many possibilities.

    It's basically a collection of 10+ very basic minigames for preschoolers that follow the Skylanders mantra of "toys come to life" by offering figures of the six Rescue Bots that enter a digital world with a "portal" (in this case, the spinning Beam Box) that transports them into the game.

    Similar in concept but not quite a Skylanders version of Transformers. That'd be a HUGE money sink. It's still a cute concept and I'm sure kids will dig it.

    Also added some more pictures to the first post.

    We've had a thread about this before, but it wasn't this detailed. Awesome!

    I'm a little diappointed that there will be fighting in the game. I'm sure I'll still get this for my son, but the main draw for Rescue Bots is that it was a non-violent Transformers show.
