You can get a set of 4 cheapish (look at the post I placed above) Along with the two dogs and the Lion.

I really must get the police station with husky before they vanish - but I have not got around to it yet - now I have ordered 4 Plus the Sequoia I already have (and the dog I already have from the Garage playset) I just need to get the red Dragon and the two new dragons sold with the new Bumblebee that just got a listing : Transformers Rescue Bots Knight Watch Bumblebee :

Seibertronian RAR has pointed us toward a new listing on the Argos website for Transformers Rescue Bots Knight Watch Bumblebee! We previously saw this version of Bee at Toy Fair, but this is the first we've seen of a listing for the figure as well as stock photography! The description illustrates how Bumblebee can turn into a dragon, and his two Mini-con buddies can combine into his battle axe. The description also strangely mentions that, even though the figure is part of the Rescue Bots toy line, he was "inspired by the New Transformers Movie". Take that as you will, here's some of the stock photos for the figure, and you can click on either of them to be taken to the Argos listing!

I love the sheer novelty of a Bumblebee that turns into a dragon, who's double-ended battle axe splits into a fire and ice dragons. I'd have gone nuts for this toy as a kid. :lol:

Well my 4 for just under $20 / £15.00 Rescue Minicons arrived in only 8 days from the USA.

The short of it is if you only get one - Get Sequoia (or perhaps Drake)

But as to the others :

SWIFT : The Cheetah-bot : Well he has no joints aside from his tail which is a bit disappointing being able to fold his legs up would have helped a lot - but his mechanism to rotate the hex-nut on a car wheel is fine and works up both ways - he's more sized to a larger bot though . as a standing piece in cheetah mode he looks nice though. Perhaps needed a little paint on the back legs though

Fireplug : (no sub-title on this one) looks nice enough as a Dalmatian. Transforms easily - no real joints in dog mode be he displays well and is decently painted. - has storage for the water effects part semi-recommended - but might be better value bought with the playset

Servo ( I could swear I saw this listed as DUKE somewhere).
modestly painted looks decent from a distance - but looks a little gappy up close. Nice dog face the drill spins nicely - but only works one way up and unfortunately that is the way that look worst - his tail is a little short that might cause some problems with him being held.
So buy him mainly if you want to give Codie or Boulder a dog.

VALOR : The Lion-Bot (though he actually looks a lot like a Bulldog)
The mechanism looks a bit naff on his claw mode and he's very gappy due to the way he transforms - but he goes nicely with chase - the tail and handle do kinda have some issue with the way they move that they get in each others way a bit and the handle doesn't really do anything more than just sit there in beast mode. Looks OK from a middle-distance and if they ever make a Mega-Chase he'd probably look good with that.

Overall I'm pleased with them - I bought them mainly for their animal modes and they look nice in beast mode - so i'm happy.
Price was good and I will do my best to complete the collection with Bee's two little dragons and the police playset Husky dog/motorcycle & Drake who I have to get yet.

The two little dragons are named Freezer Burn (the blue one) and Windblaze (the red one).

It's funny how both of their names could work for either one of them. :P

Neat - I'll get that when they show up on eBay.

I wonder what the Jackhammer mode would look like interacting with the Snow-plow Boulder toy.

Also on the Transformers section of the Hasbro site is this oddity :

Transformers: Rescue Bots Epic Figures Wave 4 Sighted in US

Motto: "There are no impossibilities in the multiverse, just small minds unable to comprehend the possibilities"
Weapon: Armor Axe
Remember back a while ago when we found some online listings for the new Rescue Bots Epic Figures collection? Well, it appears as though they have finally made it to stores! Yours truly found these with a decently sized Transformers Display earlier today, labeled at a $9.97 price point, and they include Bumblebee (not seen), Boulder, Salvage, and Quickshadow. They are similar to the large shampoo-styled bots that have been showing up in the Robots in Disguise and movie lines. Check them out below!

Quickshadow and Salvage I spotted as online listing the other week (in the UK) but If they had Boulder I didn't see him.

If they sold them with a fully articulated Human mini-figure and a weapon-tool you could also use on the normal size toys - they'd be worth considering more closely than I do at the moment.
