Entertainment Earth has updated with even more images of some upcoming Transformers releases - this time out, we have official images of the Rescue Bots humans. The assortment of the six humans includes characters such as Billy Blastoff, the Burns brothers Charlie and Cody, and more. They are the human partners to the Transformers as featured in the upcoming Rescue Bots toyline.

Sorry. Can a mod adjust the title to avoid further disappointment?
Snoopy Magnus
um...... well..... hmmm..... okay, at least we see an autobot logo on it
McBradders
Those look so cool!

So is this the followup series for Animated?

Yucky! You ended my favorite line, Robot Heroes for this Bunk???!!!

I really, really REALLY wanted a RH Movie Sentinel Prime and Shockwave

Hasbro, you just took the bro out of Hasbro.

My thoughts exactly. It's like Human Alliance meets Action Masters for lil' tikes

looks ok for kids.

Other than the Autobot logos, what do these things have to do with Transformers at all? They're just Rescue Heroes ripoffs with non-transformable vehicles...talk about cashing in.

if you paid attention to the toyfair presentation this year you would see there are gonna be actual transforming rescue bots, these guys help them out
theestampede
would have been really cool if these accessory vehicles could turn into backpacks or other power ups for the actual robots, rather than just a vehicle for the human characters.

I don't think that changes the fact that these are cash-ins...they could have just as easily included some humans with the Transformers, but instead they release these, which, if not for the Autobot logos, could really be from any generic "Rescue Heroes"-type line.

ONLY Transformers are allowed in a Transformers toyline, HasFAIL!

You know, the toylines that are based on fictional universes in which Transformers, humans, and non-sapient machinery all co-exist. Those toylines. They can only have Transformers in them or else someone's being ripped off. Somehow.

Also Hasbro, how DARE you use your IP to promote a line that's not targeted at 15-50 year old super-cereal Tranfsormers fans!
Feralstorm
I'm ready for "Rescue Bots" Sari Sumdac & Captain Fanzone.

Dare ya, Hasbro.

These do look pretty cool. Looking forward to seeing them in person.

Oh come on now, you know I didn't say or imply any of that; I'm all for expansion of the line, but these things just seem lazy. To me, it looks as though the fact that they're part of a Transformers line was almost an after-thought. I have no problem with them targeting younger kids with certain lines, but these wreak of "Let's slap some Autobot logos on these so young kids will be more inclined to want them". So yeah, I'm still sticking with these being cash-ins.
Protoman
These will display nicely next to the Robot Heroes stuff.

Of course it's a cash-in. It's always been a cash-in. All that's changed in the demographic. That's why I think you're funny.

It's also demonstrably false that the Transformers connection is an afterthought, because full Transformers, including Optimus and Bumblebee, are coming out for this line. It's just that they are also releasing smaller toys that aren't full Transformers. Who gives a crap anyway? I have no interest in them and that doesn't bother me.
Superquad7
SOMEday, I sure wished Hasbro would learn how to make TRANSFORMERS the RIGHT way.

If you'll excuse me, I think I'd like to go play with my Generations Warpath now. KaPOW.

Sure, keep digging that hole.
Alienbot
July huh? So will the transforming RB Optimus be out then too? I'd like to buy one for my godson.
Kevin XI
While anything from this line probably won't be on my shelves, I don't mind buying them for the kids in my family. I'll get to play with them, too.
Infosaur
these will DEFIATELY save my TF collection.
If my kid looks at my stuff, I'll buy him one of these.

Any word on the age ranges?
SMOG
I'm a bit confused. Does anything actually "transform" with these at all? Are there any robots involved??

zmog
Necrothug
Looks like these are just the human buddy figures that compliment the actual Transformers. I'll pass on these, but the actual Transformers for this line look like a lot of fun for little hands.
Kaymac
These are not aimed at me, and therefore I am not going to get into an enormous rage about them. Take me as an example.
Philip164
There does seem to be a lot of unnecessary hinges, I think these are like HA Basics, maybe they'll somehow work with the actual Robot Heroes Transformers.
Prowl67
The weapons/tools definately look like a throwback to Action Masters. The Helicopter especially reminds me of Bumblebee's backpack

Thats what I was thinking, you can tell which partner goes with which bot aswell by colour scheme.

Looks cool. Many kids of my friends are wanting these when and if they hit the UK

Are you guys seeing different pictures than me?? I'm just seeing little vehicles that don't look like they transform AT ALL. I mean, did they just re-paint pre-existing Rescue Heroes vehicles with TF symbols?

The_Black_Sheep
Um... There's something I can't quite comprehend. These things are called "Transformers Rescue Bots" but the only TF-related thing on them are the symbols. Um... Why label something Transformers when it doesn't even transform in any way, shape or form? These things look even worse than the crap that was Actionmasters. Is this supposed to be a substitute for RobotHeroes or something? *sigh*
Grimwing
These will make more sense when you guys see the robots their supposed to partner with.
Its pretty much the same design aesthetic and colorscheme as these vehicles.

The Human vehicles don't Transform at all. But their not the part of the line that Transforms. I expect these have really basic action features though.

The concept is a bunch of younger Autobots who are a rescue team. And they have Human Partners to Assist them, perhaps to help them rationalize Earth Culture, instead of laser blasting Hot Dog carts and City Buses.

I can understand why Hasbro is keeping decepticons out of this line, being a rescue team. A new show to line up next to "Chuck and Friends" on the Hub.

Still for fans who like this line art and color style, the lack of decepticons is something a bit disappointing. But you can't really show them causing trouble on this kind of show without Optimus Prime making them Apologise and join the Autobots for an Oil Picnic.
GAUGE
these are perfect for the little tykes.

but terrible for MANChildren.

ZOMG! HASBLOW RUINZ MY CHILDHOODS!

Excited to see TFs for toddlers! BUT the DOTM line already seems to have some toddlers friendly offerings.

Why do the humans need non-transforming vehicles? Are they not allowed to ride in the autobots? Can their non-transforming vehicles do MOAR than the autobots?

Makes no sense to me.

AGAIN, these supplement the TRANSFORMING robots in this line, which will even have their own show

tfw, quit covering conventions, it is pointless, it seems nobody pays attention besides like 5 people
SMOG
So when do we see pictures of the actual ROBOTS?

They showed the robots at toyfair.

All of those transform but it looks like there will be power bot sized ones that don't transform and it looks like all the playset ones that the little humans ride on don't transform either. They kinda have the speed stars robot on the bottom thing going.

Thanks for the links! I don't think I saw those before!

One or two of those are alright, but overall they look pretty weak. And no, I'm NOT judging young childrens' toys by an unfair adult standard... I think these look way less appealing than the old Hasbro Go-Bots. Surely a step backwards in terms of toy design...
