TFW2005 Exclusive Transformers: Rescue Bots Concept Art

Rescue-Bots-Logo-Custom

We heard about them at a Press Conference. We saw them at the New York Toy Fair 2011. Now, it’s time to check out some exclusive CGI Renders and Art for Transformers: Rescue Bots; Playskool’s upcoming Transformers addition to their already successful Adventure Heroes toyline (about to be known as Playskool Heroes in the future).

Slated for release in August 2011, “Transformers: Rescue Bots” is the successor of Transformers: Robot Heroes. Based on the same concept as Superhero Squad and Hero On-The-Go, Rescue Bots mainly focus on educating children regarding hazards and safety.

Official Description: “Anything can get done when Transformers Rescue Bots and their friends team up! Help fight fires, flood and crime, or anything in between – the Rescue Bots love adventure and rescue!”

The initial team of Autobots for the line consists of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Chase The Police-Bot, Heatwave The Fire-Bot, Blades The Copter-Bot and Boulder The Construction-Bot. Human figures are associated with various rescue tools and colored accordingly to a certain Autobot of the same line.

Additionally kids can collect playsets known as (but not limited to) “Fire Station Prime” and “Bumblebee’s Rescue Garage”, very similar to the previously mentioned “Hero On-The-Go” packs.

We say a hearty “Thank You!” to TFW2005 Member Matrix Soul for providing us these images and we do hope that you all will enjoy and say a few words about this upcoming line.

Take a look at the Concept Art, after the jump.

    I was fortunate in being in the early stages of development for the Rescue Squad, and now that the toys are unveiled, I think it should be ok to post some of the art here for the fans to check out, so enjoy some early CG shots of the Rescue Squad.

    Disclaimer: Just so that I'm not misleading anyone, I did not do the CG images, I only computer colored the scenarios that was hand drawn by another artist.

    Think Playskool but actually kind of cool. They're TFs (well, Autobots) that are for much younger kids and are a rescue force, not a war force. There's like a little fire station and stuff and Optimus is a firetruck again. They were at Toyfair.

    I'm pretty sure it's the same thing.

    Ohhhhhhhh when Matrix Soul posted and said something about CG renders, I assumed he was working on some kind of 3rd party thing I had missed hearing about. Yeah I saw the playschool bots at toyfair. Just couldn't put 2 and 2 together I guess. lol

    Boulder... is that like a Rock Lords homage? Until I saw the names, I'd assumed that was Bulkhead.

  5. Sol Fury's Avatar Sol Fury says

    Me too! But our own NIBMRatchet did some work on Amazon, and dug up some listings, and those were the names. That was the one that we both agreed was the best fit.

    I guess beyond Bumblebee and Optimus, the idea was to use new / less known names so they don't get associated with the main series and the war connotations?

    well, the character seemed like Bulkhead superficially, but the new name definitely fits. I looked it up and sure enough there actually was such a Rock Lord, even if it's not much of a likeness.

    Though I suppose they're both sorta green and wear helmets.

    Somebody needs to give these hilarious, meme-worthy captions. Can't wait to buy me a Boulder and Prime.
