Hasbro Transformers The Last Knight Autobots Unite Bumblebee and Autobot Hot Rod Action Figure SetA few months ago I saw Bumblebee and Autobot Hot Rod. It wasn't yet available for sale, but we were told it would be a Walmart exclusive - and it didn't show up. Walmart's distribution of exclusives for the last two movies was spotty, with many not showing up or in this case, going straight to Ross. What happened? I have no idea - but their loss is our gain. Five bucks for two figures? I can live with that.

You've seen the Bumblebee mold before, and Hot Rod was sold (scarcely) individually with different deco. When I saw the pics with the flame hood and yellow spoiler, I had to have it - I wish it were bigger, but this will do for now. Each figure has about 6-8 points of articulation, depending on how you feel like counting the ankles needed for transformation. I enjoy both.

You're not buying this set for Bumblebee - this is the Dark of the Moon Cyberverse mold again. It has a unique blue windshield with other unpainted windows, some black on the hood, and a painted Chevy logo. The wheels are black, there's a stripe on the door, and it's simple. It's absolutely worth what I paid for the set, and it's just different enough to make you mad - his single-card release this time around had a black windshield. If you're a Bumblebee completist, first allow me to offer my condolences and then say you'll want this one too. He has no problems standing or transforming, and he's pretty sturdy in both modes. I like the blue eyes on the silver face, and as a robot he looks just fine. The car looks a little cheap.

...of course, at $5 for two figures, it is a little cheap. You may already have other, better versions but given what you get in this set for this price, it's lovely.

I got this set because I had to have the Hot Rod - a big yellow spoiler! Flames on the hood! This is what I like. The red face mask has a silver mouth and what seems like very dark blue eyes, plus silver and yellow on his chest. It's a nice change of pace from the generally drab black repaints that rarely bring colors that aren't purple or teal. Articulation is good for the size, and the hands can grip Kre-o weapons I had on my desk. It can also grip old Cyberverse weapons. I'm surprised they kept that kind of compatibility in here, particularly given how few new molds we've seen for this scale in recent years.

I positively adore the alt mode. It's the best. I want Generations Hot Rods like this - the car is sturdy and the silver windshield is, well, it's better than nothing. Some more windows would be nice, but at this scale - and again, for this price - I'm not complaining. The spoilers-as-knees look great and I love the flame deco on the car roof. I'm not saying it's for everybody, but Hasbro tends to make Hot Rod toys with alt modes I like enough to leave the toy as the car. That's rare.

It's a neat set and I found it worth the money - and the hunting at Ross stores during their busy season. They can easily have 20 or more customers in their queues and the stores can be utterly packed - plus this is the set of the three that got cherry-picked the most locally. People have good taste - if you also have good taste, you should get this set on sight. It's really great.
