Transformers-Rescue-Bots-Logo
Wow! Nearly a year passed since the start of Hasbro-Discovery Hub Television Channel. This time last year, we were all excited to take a look at Transformers: Prime, G. I. Joe Renegades and the awesome My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic (The Hub just got 20% Cooler). So, we have a great line-up for the 2nd year starting with the Season 2 of MLP: Friendship is Magic on September 17th and after Episode 23, this writer is pretty sure that everyone is looking forward to the Season 2 of Transformers: Prime.

Anyway, another new project by The Hub is Transformers: Rescue Bots. The series is due to debut in 2012 and will focus on teaching children about Hazards and Safety. The toyline is releasing way ahead of the planned TV Series and today we are bringing you the Official Images, Descriptions and a TV Commercial for the Toyline.


*Speculation: The background song from the commercial may be the Theme Song of the TV Series?

Hahaha. Addicition starts at the youngest age.


I wish I had kids.
vektsilver
it would be so much easier to explain why we think its cool lol.

That is pretty neat. Similar to gravity bots but actually cooler.
SPLIT LIP
There's no way people could say these aren't at least kinda cool.

Glad they're making the "kids" TFs actually good.
Wheeljack_Prime
To transform Blades, you pretty much stand him up on his tail? OK...(and yes I know this is a kiddie line, but still...)
Feralstorm
The video looks a bit too 'itemized' to be a TV commercial IMO. I'm thinking it's more like some kind of promo video for retailers, or for point-of-purchase displays, like those little video screens running ads you might see at Wal-Mart.

Looks good for kids. I noticed I can't find any online listings or prices for the human allies.

well, i guess we can skip the video reviews with transformations. this promo did it all!

Well these look lame but clearly not marketed for me. Maybe my son when he is a little older will like this.

Twisting the knob splits his tail into legs, flips his pontoons around to become arms and opens his cockpit to reveal his head. The video just shoots it from an angle that doesn't make all of that immediately apparent. It's about as involved as pretty much every other figure - it just doesn't seem to involve any additional manual manipulation of parts.

When I was that kid's age, I had a G1 Jetfire and was able to transform him just fine. They're seriously underestimating kids with these baby toys.

I was just about to post the same thing! I don't really understand why they're dumbing this stuff down for kids. I can understand that the Bayverse stuff is overly intricate and breakable for children but I seriously don't get why they have to make it so simple. I think that they could just as easily make simpler (not TOO simple) transformations for cooler looking toys so that it could be fun for younger and older kids as well as collectors. They don't need to sacrifice aesthetics for young kids. They were going in the right direction with Animated....

Well, what age group are they shooting for?

It might be that they're going for a younger segment, but a kid that age they can get to act on-camera in transforming the toys.

Plus, these are intended to be a gateway drug, plain and simple. If the kids want something more involved, they can buy toys from another toyline. Cyberverse is probably gonna be the next step up; after that, Prime.
Autovolt 127
That theme is pretty damn awesome.

I actually think it'll be interesting seeing little Kindergarteners playing with Rescue Bots.

I'm not gonna lie.

Blades is totaly , and I want one.

WORD. the best kids TFs my boy has for him are gravity bots and he LOVES em. had em for over a year n a half and they still work great.

He got the RB BB and he loves it...Ill be buyin him these..no prob

I dunno... I am a bit skeptical now. My 5 year old son of course is all hyped up, from the promotional stuff we got at BC this year, he asks me at least once a week when the show will be on. I keep telling him not at least until he turns 6 . Anyways, we both love watching "Super Hero Squad" together as it is fun for kids, but actually delves deep into the Marvel Universe.

If "Rescue Bots" is just going to be a TF version of Bob the Builder or Frieman Sam I'll pass. My kids have seen plenty of kids safety cartoons. I was hoping for a kiddified version of the greater TF universe, with bits of fan service here & there.

The series has been touted as a "Teach Safety to Kids" show since Day 1, with no plans to feature any of the Decepticons at all.

And why would you deny your kids watching this if that's the case? Let him watch it for himself and decide if it's something he'll enjoy instead of shooting it down because it's not Super Hero Squad: TF Version.
NCStarscream
I want a Sparkplug toy!

Also, I think introducing the Shattered Glass-verse is required so we can get away with putting Decepticons in this line.

My nephew just started on the plastic crack after he borrowed my ROTF Hubcap for a weekend. Last I saw he's got Animated Snarl, Optimus Prime Speedstars, and one of the Human Alliance Basics. He's only 4,,, a bit below the recomended age.

My son is only 9 months, so this is comming out just in time to keep him away from daddy's Alternators, G1's and collectables.

I thought that the first time too - then I notice it's more complex than that the legs split the arms transform and move out and the bubble moves back. it's at least as complex as Optimus.

The only small issue I have is that the Playskool Go Bots did have a bit more movement in the arms than these have - so they will be a bit to static as robots.

Surely even very young kids don't need to be told that much to put the arms by their sides before Transforming them ?

As the lack of movable arms (and to a lesser degree heads) is the only downside for me - I'm not as bothered by the immovable legs though).

I'd suggest Hasbro design them so they heads can rotate (when the design permits) and they all have shoulders in future waves then i'd happily buy several dozen of them.

Very high shelves or a room with a lock is a better idea - trust me i've heard some real horror stories enough to make a rock cry.
Obsidian X
Blades huh? I hope he is a bloodthirsty street brawler like his G1-self is
DJW107PRIME
Just thought about it, and would it have been a bad idea to put a female robot and/or human in the mix. Just sayin when I was a tyke I would've liked a female autobot, or con.

And look how many Jetfires got broken and had lost parts...

You seem to think they're trying to sell those toys to kids ages 5-10, but it's more 2-5. The Optimus Prime Fire Station says 3-6. My 2.5 year old daughter loves the stuff and is able to transform them all by herself.
MidnightBliss
My kid loves these and so do I!!!

The plastic seams much more substantial than our adult versions and their mushy transformations. These snap and pop together like old times, and have a nice weight to them it appears.

These look far too simple .. dumbing down kids? When my son was in kindergarten he figured out my Masterpiece optimus prime and threw said the go-bots were "Crappy"

I love the look of these guys. I might just pick one up, either Heatwave or Optimus, I guess.

I saw a few of them at my local Walmart yesterday, and we NEVER get stuff first, so a local store in your area may have some by now. These have been sighted for a few weeks.

My three year old daughter always wants to play with my classics, binaltechs, g1, masterpiece, or whatever else I have out that I'm currently playing with. She especially loves Bumblebee, Optimus, and Jazz. These are pretty cool and just what she needs to really start her obsession off! Still, I wish they were a slight more articulated, but what are you going to do? I purchased 2 Primes and 2 Bees so we both could have one. I just wished they would make a Jazz and some 'cons for this line...
