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!
General Information: Release Date: October 2017 Price Point: $15.47-$19.99 (Price changed from initial release to the date this review was written) Retailer: Walmart Exclusive (United States), General Release (in countries such as Japan) Accessories: None
Walmart has updated its web site with a listing for "Autobots United" Flip & Change Hot Rod. This uses the same basic engineering as the "Age of Extinction" Flip & Change figures with new tooling on parts such as the head. This figure is exclusive to Walmart and retails for $19.97. Check out the attached photos and official description below:
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.
