    I've seen the gray/yellow t rex sold singularly before in the little kid section. Its kinda weird looking. Love the Bumblebee dinosaur. Not big on the goofy dragon. Snarl is so-so.

    There’s Shattered Glass versions of every positive universe character. We just don’t know of every single one of them.

    Heatwave with an evil color scheme and an Autobot insignia; that’s Shattered Glass material right there. Okay so it’s one of Heatwave’s many forms but it’s not a stretch of the imagination to think of Predaking as being an evil Heatwave.

    Hmm, I'm trying to imagine the new song:

    "Rescue Bots,
    ...DINO-Boooot!!!
    Adventurrrres! "

    This would be a nice second chance for me to get the sword and shield dino minicons. And in different colors too.
    I like Bumblebee's dino mode. Could have been used for Slash instead but I'll take it.

    There is a Shattered Glass Heatwave, but he’s a different character whose toy was released a few years before.

    Eh. I'm rather fond of Jeffrey Combs' Ratchet.

    Or Jeffrey Combs in anything, really.

    So after 10-11 years we FINALLY get our VERY FIRST NON-AUTOBOT Transformer in this freakin toyline (not counting Dr. Morocco/MorBots or the humans), and it’s Predaking himself.

    So... does this mean that the Rescue Bots toyline is now officially over after the current toys are gone from stores, or are these ones just one-off dinosaur themed toys under a new toyline banner (Dinobot Adventures), and we will be getting more Rescue Bots toys sometime in the future?

    I'm not sure why this news topic is calling these "Rescue Bots Dinobot Adventures" when none of the packaging anywhere says "Rescue Bots". Hasbro uses molds from one toyline for other toylines all the time, so just because these were originally Rescue Bots molds, it doesn't make these redecos Rescue Bots toys if the packaging no longer uses the Rescue Bots logo or wording anywhere.
    More accurately, this toyline is just called "Dinobot Adventures". Whether it relates to the old Rescue Bots universe/series remains unknown if there is no official fiction given to tie these toys to an existing toyline.

    Retailer listings we received are titled Rescue Bots Dino OP, Rescue Bots Dino 2-pack etc. despite the packaging not mentioning so. Therefore we placed them and named them under Rescue Bots.

    Fair enough.

    Also, is Hasbro okay with watermarks put on their official images?
    I've never done it with official images they have sent to me to distribute, but I guess Hasbro in America doesn't mind?

    For those wanting the 3-pack of Dinobots... find them from a retail source, DO NOT get them from Amazon America, as they are selling them in a plain boring brown box (like they sometimes do with previous Rescue Bots Amazon exclusives), and they didn't include instructions.
    They still need instructions, as they are for little kids, and some of the Rescue Bots toys have special activations that can damage the mechanics if done wrong.
    Besides, how depressing would this look to a little kid, 3-5 years old, opening this up as a present.
    Three of the five reviews on the Amazon page are complaints about the packaging not looking like what is shown on the product page.

    The proper retail version is now out in Australia... but as you can see from my photo, I had just got the pack from Amazon America two days earlier. :( 

    Also out in America (at Amazon and Entertainment Earth) is the second wave of Classic Heroes Team - Heatwave and Chase.
    They may have the Rescue Bots packaging, but I think these were heavily delayed from the beginning of this year... and along with the Bumblebee 3-pack at Ross's, is probably the last ones.
    Each of the Classic Team toys is slightly different to their earlier versions, with Heatwave being a slightly lighter red and yellow, and a slightly darker blue.
