Oh and I also got Sequoia and they do work quite well together.
When I have time i'll take some pics.
Also Smyths have a listing up for those small 3 packs of auto-transforming Rescuebots - that are somewhat like Botshots cross with Gravity bots.
I also hear B&M Bargains are selling the pull back and go Racecar Bee and Sideswipe - though I've not seen them myself yet.
After seeing the Combiner Force Trail with Blurr in it - I hope I can get that Blue Blurr and Optimus with Trailer set at a good price sometime too.

I just wanted to pass on an eBay offer that might be useful :
Item # 112400868766
BY ; usamobile-co
NEW Playskool Transformers Rescue Bots 4PK Fireplug Cheetah-Bot Servo 6TS6zg1
(there are a number of similar ones described that you can find on a bunch of regional eBays).
I'm mentioning this one as I managed to sweet talk them into accepting an offer price on the item that got it under £14.99 (equivalent in USD$)
I had to try a bunch of them to get this but for UK board members for customs reasons this might be useful.
4 Rescue Minicons for an OK price - they should work out more of less the same as the eventual Entertainer sales would. and The Entertainer don't have all of them anyway.
And remember these Minicons are compatible with normal Transformers too.

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 :

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.

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