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.

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 :

In this class size. She has a regular toy in the line already.

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.
