Italian retail site Gamepeople has given us our first look in package at RID Combiner Force Dragstrip and Wildbreak in the Crash Combiners assortment. The "Dragbreak" paired form has been briefly seen first in the trailer for the new season of Robots in Disguise. With little or no sign of even the second wave of Crash Combiners at US retail so far, it's hard to say when this set might actually start seeing distribution for those interested in this part of the line. You can find the mirrored package photo below!
Toys R Us UK has got product pages up for the three known Robots in Disguise combiner team sets: Ultra Bee, Menasor, and Galvatronus. With them comes sets of product photography showing off samples of the figures. While we'd already seen the Stunticons' photos, this now lets us have a look at final or near-final versions of the other two combiners, as well as showing off the package fronts for all three. All three sets are out of stock for delivery, with no indication when they might come in, but with these stock photos surfacing, it can't be very long now.

Time Warner Cable's online episode guide has been updated with two new episodes of Robots in Disguise. Combiner Force, which is either season 3 or 4, depending who you ask, already has had its first 7 episodes become generally available via on demand and official streaming, and today we've found out about the next two unreleased episodes, which focus one each on Drift, and Strongarm. No airdates are offered, but we have the summaries in the full post below. Keep reading!
If you've been holding off on buying RID Warrior Soundwave, this might be a spark of motivation for you. SwiftEagle has discovered that there's a running change happening on this toy which sees the head remolded. The photos provided show that the new version has a G1-style mask on the lower half of the face, instead of the Prime
-derived full visor face. Though not painted, the updated head sculpt does now better match the character art on the packaging. If the maskless style is more to your liking, it's probably time to pick up a Soundwave now! Keep reading for the pictures.
Swiss retail site Spielplanet has posted a new image showing the Menasor Combiner team set from Robots in Disguise. A grouped shot of all the figures, each in both of their individual modes, this is our first time seeing these as what are likely final production pieces. Motormaster is fairly obviously mistransformed in using the Menasor head in normal robot mode, but this does offer a decent look at the toys overall. We've mirrored the new image below - check it out!
New on the forums, chuckdawg1999 has shared a video with us for the Activator Class Combiner Force Sideswipe from RID. This joins the already released Bumblebee and Strongarm from this pricepoint and shares the play feature of an enhanced vehicle mode when the partner Mini-Con is attached. We've got the video for you to check out in the full post below, so click through now and get watching!
Robots in Disguise
writer and producer Adam Beechen has posted some valuable info to Twitter! The third season of RID, rebranded as "Combiner Force," is confirmed to be 26 episodes long when counting the 2-part opener that aired this weekend. Beechen also confirms that the block of Starscream-centric episodes Cartoon Network labeled as "Season 3" was considered to be a part of Season 2 on the production side. Keep reading for confirmation!
Chefatron from Youtube has one more video review to share this weekend, featuring the Activators Class Soundwave from RID Combiner Force. The Activators are the Mini-Con-interactive action feature style figures. Soundwave is paired with Laserbeak, and using Laserbeak in vehicle mode deploys (non-firing) missile launchers. Apart from that, you can see the admittedly limited articulation and the transformation, though most of that was revealed a while ago in a video featuring Soundwave's prototype
, but it's good to see how the final version worked out. Click through to watch!
Cartoon Network have made the first 7 episodes of Robots on Disguise Combiner Force available online starting now through June 6th. The Season kicks off with the two part King of the Hill episode. These are FULL episodes that may or may not be available in other countries. Hasbro recently said they would be doing more online streaming of their shows, and here we are. Read on for more details.
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!
It looks like another round of Robots in Disguise product is filtering out to the usual suspects of discount retail in the US. Tonight I personally spotted the Power Surge electronic figures for Sideswipe and Bumblebee at a Ross store, priced at $12.99 each. This seems to be the first sign of 2016 RID product getting cleared out, and more may be on the way behind it. Meanwhile, if you've been looking for a deal to add these figures - or just their Mini-Cons - to your collection, it might be time to start hitting your local closeout stores. Photo proof of the sighting can be found below!
