Japanese retailer Red Mercury has brought us our first look at in package samples for the upcoming waves of RID Combiner Force Legion figures, featuring Heatseeker, Cyclonus, Drift, and Bumblebee, as well as Combiner Activators featuring Soundwave and Optimus Prime. Previously we've been shown computer renders of all of these, along with a good look at the testshot for Soundwave in a Facebook video, but this is the first chance to see these toys in finalized form. We've mirrored the images, click through to see them now!
Our forums member chuckdawg1999 has shared another video with us. This is a look at the first two waves of the Crash Combiners play pattern in Robots in Disguise Combiner Force. The first wave of two packs, Optimus and Strongarm, and Bumblebee and Sideswipe have been available for a while, but wave 2 pack of Skysledge and Stormhammer are just now beginning to hit in the US, and this video gives a chance to get a look at these new figures - including seeing the components get swapped around and mix and matched! Check it out embedded below.
The newly released promo trailer for Robots In Disguise Combiner Force which is set to debut on April 29th in the US features a lot of first clear looks at things being added in for this season, including the "crash combination" forms of the Stunticons, new looks at Ultrabee, and more! Some of it passes by pretty quickly in the video, so we're bringing you a quick gallery of 31 images to give you a chance to get a clear look at many of the key visuals being introduced. The stills are all in 1080 quality, so be sure to hit the Original Image link in the gallery pages for full resolution! Check it all out below.
In 2017, Hasbro’s hit animated series, Transformers: Robots in Disguise will return to Cartoon Network for a third season.
The season 3 theme is “Combiner Force” and the Autobots and Decepticons will take the battle between good and evil to new heights with the creation of Combiners – teams of Transformers who combine forces to create larger, more powerful bots.
Bumblebee and the Autobot team must learn how to fight the Decepticons when combined with one another and truly work as one.
Via multiple reports, it seems Hasbro is sending out advisories to fans subscribed to one mailing list or another that the new season of Robots in Disguise will be starting on April the 29th on Cartoon Network in the US. Included is a promo graphic with an unfortunate naming error showing Menasor and Ultrabee. However, right now advance TV listings do not seem to agree with the contents of the e-mail, instead showing the 6 episode run previously called "season 3" starting over in that day's slot. At the moment, it looks like we'll have to wait and see what the DVRs have to report two Saturdays from now!
