    My dude...it's Rescue Bots, not Generations. This is literally for pre-schoolers.

    Wedge is also in the assortments - I've seen him too in ASDA & also previously in Moons in Newmarket Suffolk a week or two back which I reported at the time.

    I hope some of the older ones show up as I keep missing them, It took me months to get Chase, I still don't have Boulder and Blades and the only Heatwave I have is a carbootsale one that originally would have come with a trailer that has unpainted wheels.

    As the UK didn't really seem to get the 4 pack getting the main cast is difficult. Going forwards I hope them complete making the rest of the Dinos in this scale.

    As for Hotshot he's not bad - a moving head would have been nice though. He does unusually have arms that can raise the Quin-jet like moulds are one of the few ones that seems to have this feature. We should be getting the Hovercraft mode too before to long.

    I noticed that the Multi-pack for Academy is listed for UK release in August - so hopefully it won't be to much of a chore to get the Buggy Hotshot in that set. One would think they'd want to repack Hoist too since he's part of the main cast.

    They didn't show many new ones at Toyfare but there is a Chase Racing Car and a Trex to look forward too as well.
