Transformers Rescue Bots Character Profiles and Activity Sheets Celebrate DVD Release on 10/2

Character Profiles

When HEATWAVE transforms into a fire truck and pulls out for a mission, he's ready to blaze like no one else. As team leader, he loves being the first one in action. He's brave, and he doesn't like pretending to be a "tin can." But, maybe, by working with his human partner, Kade, and befriending Cody, HEATWAVE can learn what it means to be a leader -- and a friend.

BLADES is the opposite of Dani, his human partner. For one thing, he's a little scared of heights. (Not a good thing to be if you're a Rescue Bot that transforms into a helicopter!) Being heroic in the air can be a challenge when you don't want to look down, but whenever Dani pushes BLADES to the limit, he feels proud of what they accomplish!

BOULDER transforms into a steam shovel and he really digs being on Earth. He loves his partner, Graham, and he's fascinated by everything earthly -- from nature to TV shows to parades to pirates. But when it's time for action, BOULDER becomes two tons of heavy metal thunder -- ready to dig a trench, build a firewall, or shield a human from harm.

When CHASE transforms into a police car, blares his siren, and flashes his lights, he's the fastest thing on wheels -- and a great partner for Chief Burns. He's loyal and brave and always wants to enforce rules to the letter, even if that means he wants to ticket folks for driving even one mile over the speed limit. Together, Chief Burns and CHASE are an unstoppable team.
When you’re in need, they’re the first to be on the scene…

Griffin Rock seems like just another chunk of land floating off the coast of Maine. But if you look a little closer, you just might find more than meets the eye! Meet the Rescue Bots — Chase, Heatwave, Blades and Boulder! Stationed undercover, they’re given the task of protecting and learning about mankind by teaming up with a family of first responders, including a police chief, firefighter, helicopter pilot and engineer.

More Rescue Bots News
Finally from the preview night showing at the Hasbro booth comes the Rescue Bots display. While not as big of a foot print as Generations or RID, there's a healthy amount of product being shown off already, likely with more to come before SDCC comes to a close. We're expecting tomorrow to bring all of our big reveals of the show, so you'll want to make sure you stick with TFormers to get coverage of all of it as it happens! Now, keep reading to check out the Rescue Bots display cases!
TFW2005 user Kaiser has posted images of the new Rescue Bots Hero Racers, just found in Hong Kong. Featuring a Bumblebee with an alt-mode in the Indycar or F-1 vein and a Robots In Disguise-inspired Sideswipe, these guys are simple to transform and feature pull-back motors - which as TFW points out makes them kind of oversized successors to the G1 Throttlebots. Keep reading to see the photos, mirrored here!
The Rescue Bots are back, and now they're tater Transformers! Little hands can mix and mash the fun of Mr. Potato Head with Transformers parts to create a tater robot or truck. It's easy to put the 2" potato body on the truck or robot base and then add arms and a helmet, and just as easy to rebuild the tater in the other mode!

The official Transformers YouTube channel has posted a new trailer for the the Transformers: Rescue Bots Season 4. The "exclusive" video shows Heatwave and the Griffin Rock gang who have a new mission from Optimus Prime. Read on to see the new trailer now from season 4 of Transformers: Rescue Bots!
Congratulations to actor Jeff Bennett! Bennett, who has been providing Transformers voices since the days of Animated, has won a Creative Arts Emmy for his work on Rescue Bots!
