We have a new Transformers Classic Heroes Team reveal thanks to our very own Jtprime17. We have our first stock images of the new Transformers Classic Heroes Team (Rescue Bots) Starscream toy.
This figure seems to share engineering with the Rescan VTOL Bumblebee figure from 2017, but it’s molded as a cute and chubby G1 Starscream (he even got a smirk!) that can transform into a not less cute plane. We have images of the packaging as well as each mode.
See the images after the jump and then share your impressions on the 2005 Boards!
I found a couple cases yesterday where the Optimus and Bumblebee ship with the two Megatron, Primal and Grimlock. I’d consider them all the same based on that.
Have we determined whether the “Classic Heroes Team” Optimus and Bumblebee should be considered a part of this line, also, even though their packaging/branding is different and actually says “Rescue Bots?”
Seems to me the only figures that are part of this non-Rescue Bots newly branded line are: Megatron (tank), Megatron (alligator), Starscream, Primal, and Grimlock.
If they start doing G1 autobots, I’ll bite.
Your friend has a neat idea.
I just grabbed Primal on Clearance from Walmart but hot damn! Wonder if any Macy's with an in-house TRU would have some in stock.
EDIT: If he was he may have sold out because I don't see him anymore.
The murderous backstabbing hero that Starscream is
My kid has Optimus and Megatron, I liked the palette on both and they actually feel a bit more durable in hand than the Rescue Bots. But that could be just me.
What's wild is that there was also a Crocodile Megatron, but it was basically only for sale for like a month, sold out, and now goes for $35+ on eBay. Its weirdly hard to get, which is a shame since it would be so cute with Primal!
these recuse bots look very close to transformers versions of gobots
Me neither… will have to pick up a couple of them
Grimlock looks cool
Megatron is on sale for $6.99
Optimus looks just the same as previously released Optimus Prime Rescue bots (IMO)
Optimus Primal looks cool if Beast Wars is your thing
Ha, I didn’t even know this classic rescue bot line existed. There’s Megatron (tank), Optimus Primal, Grimlock…
Awww the little baby, and that cute smile
hahahaa… aww Chibi Scream is adorable..
This looks like what Megatron finally does to him to punish him. Force his spark into this new body for eternity.
That's a nice little Starscream. :]
Handsome lil' fella.
"Rescue Bot cadets! Your principal has fallen! I, Starscream, am your new class president!"
Another Deception enrolling to Rescue bots Academy.
My friend came up with the idea of making a Jet-kun custom off of this and I think that would be epic and plausible.
He looks hilarious!
