Transformer Rescue Bots Mini Con Friends

Playskool Heroes has released two new Transformers Rescue Bots toys; Drake the Dragon Bot and Servo the Bot Dog. Together, they're called Rescue Mini-Con Friends.

These toys transform easily for little hands but are actually pretty convincing! That is, Servo really does look like a large drill instead of just a transformed robot dog.

They're also better quality than I've come to expect from Playskool Heroes Rescue Bot toys, and I expect them to hold up much longer than the previous similar Rescue Dinobots toys.

Imaginext blind bag codes: SERIES 6

For some reason there are only six figures in Series 6 of the Imaginext blind bags. Maybe they were going for a "six" theme here. We like this series a fair amount, but it's far from being our favorite. I love seeing the movie homages and it was a little lacking in that department this go-round.

As always, use our blind bag codes at your own risk. Different codes may be released in different parts of the country and/or world.

Here are the 2016 Imaginext Series 6 blind bag codes:
99 - Court Jester/Joker/Harlequin
00 - Dinosaur robot
02 - Retro pilot/aviator (Amelia Earhart)
04 - Garden gnome
05 - Space alien
06 - Fast food mascot chicken guy

Imaginext blind bag codes: SERIES 5

Here are the Imaginext Series 5 blind bag codes:
63 - Straw hat samurai
65 - Mutant fly exterminator
66 - Genie of the Lamp
68 - Crash test dummy
70 - Cyclops
71 - Queen
74 - Teen wolf / wolfman / werewolf

Thomas MINIS blind bag Codes (updated with new WAVE 2 Thomas & Friends blind bag codes)

This post is for the 2015 Thomas & Friends blind bags available from WalMart. If you're at Target, do not use these codes!

Find a more complete list of WalMart's 2015 Thomas MINIS blind bag codes here.

Find a complete archive of Thomas and Friends blind bags flyers here.

UPDATE 1/15/2016: If you're at Target DO NOT use these codes! These are the codes for 2015 Thomas Minis blind bags which were WalMart exclusives. Target has 2016 Thomas and Friends Minis blind bags, with new, different codes. We will post with the updated codes separately from this post. Again, WalMart 2015 and Target 2016 Thomas Minis have two different codes. If you're not sure, take a look at the front of the bag. The 2015 bags mostly just say MINIS and sometimes have the code. The 2016 bags have a red strip that say 2016/1 (2016 wave 1).

New 2015 Thomas blind bags are here! Kind of.

It's taking a long time for them to roll out in all the stores here in the U.S., complicated by the fact that we can only buy them at WalMart. In the States, Thomas minis are a WalMart exclusive.

As you may know, the first wave of Thomas blind bags was released back in the Spring of this year. They only released blind bags with codes 01 through 18, with plans to release the rest in the fall. Well, fall is here (or it will be in a couple of weeks), so the new bags have started popping up in stores.

The thing is, most of our local Bay Area WalMarts still have the old bags, with codes 01 though 18. :( I was so excited to find some of the new ones at WalMart in the next town over, only to return to that WalMart a couple of days ago to find the old ones back on the shelves. I did manage to pick up nearly all of them with codes starting at number 38 up to 60, with a few missing in the 50s. I picked up the rest last week in a very,very remote Northern California WalMart.

Meanwhile, we are still missing blind bags 19 through 37, although one viewer mentioned that he's only been able to find as high as 37 in New Jersey, the opposite side of the country. So it looks like different parts of the U.S. are getting different bags so far.

We're also missing 61 on up. That was originally supposed to say 61 through 75, but Fisher Price threw us a curveball this time-- they've added 8 new Thomas minis to the list, bringing the total number of Thomas minis available to 83. And the new additions are extremely cool. While the original lineup did include five generic superhero versions of Thomas, Samson, Victor, Hiro, and Diesel, they've since added licensed versions of DC Comics super heroes! There's Thomas as Batman, Percy as Robin, James as the Flash, Thomas as Superman, D-10 as the Joker, Millie as Harley Quinn, Charlie as the Riddler, and Spencer as Cyborg. (Am I the only one having a hard time with their renaming of Diesel 10 as "D-10"? Sheesh.)

With the new minis, they've changed the flyer checklist that comes in the blind bags, removing all of the Classics series and replacing it with the DC Super Friends trains. It's worth noting that there's a glaring error on the new flyer, with some of the trains on the opposite side labeled with the wrong names.

Anyway, here are ALL the Thomas & Friends minis blind bag codes available to me so far. As always, use at your own risk and if you get something different from me, please let me know.

Note: they've moved the blind bag codes from the middle of the front on the left to the back upper right corner of the bags. There is a four-digit batch code, a forward slash, then the two-digit blind bag code.

Wave 1 Thomas minis blind bags released Spring 2015:
01 - Classics Thomas

New Thomas blind bags! (Superman Thomas! Batman Thomas!)

Here's a sneak peak of the flyer from the new Thomas and Friends blind bags. I'll be posting the codes for the bags we've been able to find here on the blog in the coming days, as well as the opening videos on YouTube. Really exciting (hint: Thomas and Friends as DC Comics characters).
Thomas the Train characters as DC Super Friends -- Thomas as Batman, Percy as Robin, James as the Flash, Thomas and Superman, Diesel 10 "D-10" as the Joker, Millie as Harley Quinn, Charlie as the Riddler, Spencer as Cyborg.
I also wanted to point out that the opposite side of this flyer (not pictured) has a glaring error; they switched out the rows for "Racers" and "Heroes", but left the engine names from the previous version. So for instance, Heroes Thomas is labeled as Gordon, since he's in the spot formerly occupied by Racers Gordon.
