    Great Rescue Bots Piece!! *High Five*

    I've watched from day 1 and purchased many of the toys from the show, mostly for my nephew who sadly has just turned 12 and while he'll fondly keep his collection, he's not really wanting to add to it, they're simple toys and he loves the MP's and Takara issues now.... (he'll have to get a job and buy his own of those) :D 

    I kept all the Optimus Prime's of course, all but the huge OP.. never bought that one.

    ...just picked up the griffin rock rescue team set this morning, four-pack of the newest deluxe-scale figures for the main cast, and my first rescue bots figures...

    ...i was excited to get them home and opened, but surprisingly my wife chastised me when she saw the set, as she’d been planning them for a surprise a birthday gift next week: she clearly knows what i like!..i guess it’s pretty tough to find gifts in today’s market of online preorder stacking...

    That's the High Tide that was supposed to be an Amazon.com exclusive, along with Salvage and a few others rounding out the set. They were released in Taiwan (found at a Hasbro Warehouse sale) and maybe some other places, not really sure.

    I concur with this. I like the guys well enough that I'd consider buying the team.

    I would love to see a high quality set made like the Generations version. No need for MP versions, but something that is like Gen Springer or Brainstorm. Even though these are geared for kids, it would be nice for a really nice collection.

    ...i just picked up chase the dino-protector tonight, and he’s so cool!..

    ...i wish they’d release similar high-quality rescan renditions of the other three dino-rescue-bots from the show, to supersede those dinky mini-dinos...
