    I believe they were on display at SDCC, but I don't think anything was officially announced.

    I have both Primes and Blades(I haven't opened him yet).

    Boxes have 1 of each figure. Both figures of a character is the same design but each are in a uniquely sculpted pose, so swapping arms between them to get different poses/looks is encouraged.

    Each bag has a small clear window to see what figure is inside, if you are looking for a particular one.

    The paint apps on these figures seem to be very precise/crisp, with only little to no slop at all on mine. Good Job Hasbro!:thumb 

    I've attached many photos below:

    Wow, $2.88 for a blind bag figure? That's a first. At least, the first that I have seen.

    I'd be down for this if there were G1 molds like they slipped in with the RID Tiny Titans and the Robot Heroes. BONUS if they scaled with the Robot Heroes.

    Oh it's on now. I love stuff like this, especially when it's nicely detailed. The RiD Tiny Titans looked pretty crappy IMO, so I skipped them.

    Nice! I wonder if you can tell which ones in the packet just by feel since each figure seems to have an distictive shape.

    I was in Walmart today and found these. If you look on the back there is a see thru spot where you can see the color of the figure. I was able to get me Bee and Optimus.

    For something Rescue Bots related, these are quite cool designs. With the weapons/tools and poses, it looks like they've dropped the pacifism and are about to kick some ass. I wouldn't mind seeing a Generations-style Heatwave with the hand-axe or Boulder with the big drill.

    Dear Hasbro,

    Several years ago, you had mini RB toys in bags (similar to this). You made FOUR. And every year, it was the same FOUR characters. My family collected 4 (and some duplicates) and waited patiently for an update.

    The kids are now over RB. Something this simple could have been made when the show premiered, and I would have bought these then.

    Timing is everything.

    My Walmart finally put these on clearance (for a buck) after years of full boxes of them taking up shelf space.

    They briefly had a box of the new blind bags - they sold out within a week.
