Toy Review: "Robots in Disguise" (2015) Activator Combiner Soundwave & Laserbeak

On my visit to the Linden, New Jersey Walmart tonight I came upon a surprise: "The Last Knight" Autobots United Flip & Change Bumblebee! This figure is a redeco of the "Age of Extinction" Flip & Change Bumblebee figure and cost $20. The "Autobots United" line is a Walmart exclusive sub-line that is slated to include a Deluxe Class Hot Rod figure! Hopefully the release of this figure means Hot Rod is going to be hitting Walmart stores soon.
