    Here's a quick groupshot of my crew. My favorites of the bunch are OP and Boulder. Kinda kicking myself for not getting Heatwave and I never could find Salvage for retail price, (scalper scumbags wanted ridiculous prices for a kindergarten toy) but such is life.

    (My daughter still has her Chase, Heatwave and Pterodactyl Blades as well.)

    I want the main four as Siege or generations toys someday. I genuinely like their characters but hate the toys currently out because they’re (obviously) too simple.

    What about your Walgreens? Mine just merged with Rite Aid so there is a lot of stock.

    Nope. My walgreens is out of my way, I seldom bother going there or to rite aid for toys. Overpriced and barely stocked.

    How awesome would it be if they made a Select Series DEFENSOR set and the components were Heatwave, Boulder, Chase, Medix, and Wedge!

    That'd be great! As long as they weren't at walgreens.

    Lol. The only concrete reason my WG had a whole case of Cyber Battalion Shockwave/Jetfire and a whole RBA setup (only Hoist left) was because the Rite Aid-WG merge happening across the states. Usually the shelves are extremely barren.

    Would buying a rescue bot for a 4-5 month old be appropriate? Or should I wait till she's older?

    That would be the right age for Rescue Bots.

    Any of you folks actually own a Motorcycle Chase - as I've never actually seen one other than in a picture ?

    ---

    Oh and if someone wants to get a Rescue Bot to try the Avengers Quinn Jet style mould used for Bumblebee, Blades and Whirl might be one to consider as it can raise it's arms.

    ----

    I wonder if the Mould used to make the Medix Paramedic Car in the slightly larger size toys for The Academy line could be remoulded into a Quickshadow toy - as that was what it reminded me of immediately - as if it was a pre-moud for her, in the way that Buggy Bumblebee was for Academy Hotshot.
