Rescue Bots 12" QUICKSHADOW!

Transformers Rescue Bots - 12" Quickshadow - Playskool Heroes/Hasbro 2017

I was really shocked recently when I saw a post on TFORMERS about how Walmart was getting a special Rescue Bots display featuring a 12" Quickshadow figure. When this character first appeared in the Transformers: Rescue Bots cartoon last year, I was really excited. She had a cool name, a cool color scheme, and she transformed into a racecar (which seems like a trait typically reserved for the alpha males of the robot world). But my hopes never got that high, because I was well aware of what the action figures for this line looked like. They are blocky little monstrosities with minimal moving parts. It is a preschool series after all. And sure enough, when the first Quickshadow figure was released last Fall, she was just another androgynous brick. Now this new 12" figure isn't a super great representation of the character either, but it is definitely a huge leap in the right direction. Compared to the other 12" Rescue Bots toys, she looks like a bona fied Jessica Rabbit. Let's check out Quickshadow below!

Quickshadow only has five points of articulation: Legs, Arms, and Head (plus a chest hatch that opens).

Quickshadow has a hollow chest cavity that can hold small figures. I took a tip from the imagery on the box and paired her with Dani Burns. (This figure is not included).

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with her blocky standard figure.

And with two recent 12" figures: Gamora and Wonder Woman.



  1. What a cool figure. :-)

    1. I read a shocking thing.... Rescue Bots is the longest running Transformers cartoon of all time. Four Seasons and 104 episodes surpasses even the original series. Don't you think this landmark needs to be represented in your collection??
