Default Rescue Bots Academy toys

Since there isn't a huge demand or interest in Rescue Bots by older collectors (who aren't parents), maybe an all-in-one news topic for the sporadic new toys for the new series.
This is basically a 2019 toyline, but we already have the Electronic Hotshot toy released in America (for US$25), plus the two Mega Mighties (Bumblebee, Hotshot) look to be out in Singapore.


Other toys so far revealed include a re-release of the Flip Racer Optimus, with a launcher trailer, that launches the bots out from the side of the trailer - out in January for US$21.
And wave 23 of the "Rescan" series has a new Hotshot as a plane, and a new Wedge as a snowplough. (so far released is wave 20 with the Chase motorcycle, so we still need another two waves released before this one comes out)


UPDATE - the rescan Hotshot and Wedge were just found two days ago in America... so maybe wave 21 and 22 were skipped or cancelled (which would be the second Salvage cement mixer to be cancelled, if true).

Something called "Featured" is slated for January, according to Entertainment Earth, with Medix and Whirl, for about US$15 each (the regular rescan toys are US$9, so these might be like Megabots).

Official images of Rescue Bots toys that were first on display at the New York Toyfair back in February.
The images include the 4-pack of remoulds (Hotshot, Whirl, Hoist, Wedge), and new packaging "Rescan" bots with a new toy Grimlock (no robot mode - dino turns into a motorcycle), along with a remould race-car Whirl, and repack/re-release Bumblebee, Brushfire, Chase and Hotshot.

Hmmm, that Grimlock is a bit ‘Cyberverse’ looking. I wonder if that means that CB and RBA will be tied together the same as RID & RB were. And if so how would that work as RB & RBA are meant to be the same universe but RID and CB are meant to be seperate.
