The other day it was revealed that fans were beginning to find many of the (former) Walmart exclusive "Autobots Unite" figures at discount chains such as Ross. It seemed that perhaps Walmart had given up on the line. However, the "Autobots Unite" line may still have some life left in it at Walmart after all!

Earlier this year it was revealed that Walmart would be carrying an exclusive sub-line of figures tying in to "The Last Knight" under the banner "Autobots Unite". Bumblebee and Hot Rod were to be the feature characters in this line.

Long before Cybertron arrived on Earth, Hot Rod was on Earth trying to defend the innocent side by side with Bumblebee. In more recent years he has served as Vivian Wembly's hidden protector, only revealing himself when Cybertron threatened the entire world. Today I bring you a look at "The Last Knight" Hot Rod!

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.
