RID 2015 Video Review
From chuckdawg1999 on the forums, we have a new video showing one of the final two Crash Combiner sets from Robots in Disguise, featuring Bisk and Saberhorn. This, and the Optimus/Grimlock combiner pair seem to be the final toys for the RID line. The assortment has evidently started to be available in some capacity in the US, following a release in some of Hasbro Asia's territories a bit earlier. We have Chuck's video embedded below, so click through to take a look and see what the new combiner set is all about!
Legion Blurr is a fun little figure and makes for a fun desk toy. Transformation is simple but I like how it all comes together. The simple step of flipping the fin parts around impresses me for some reason. Definitely worth a pickup.
Chuckdawg1999 is back at it again. Following off of Ultra Bee yesterday, he's back to show off the second of the team combiner sets in RID Combiner Force: Menasor. As Chuck puts it, Menasor is slightly more traditional with five team members, though there's only three distinct molds within the set. You can get a basic rundown of each toy and the combined form in the video - embedded below, of course - and see whether this set looks like something to bring in to your collection.

Today, our forums member chuckdawg1999 stopped in to share another new video with us, giving us one of our first in-hand looks at a team combiner set from RID Combiner Force - Ultra Bee! After some people lost enthusiasm toward the Crash Combiners upon seeing them, it'll be important to get a good look at find out how these team sets came out in execution. With two more after this, and these more or less being the "headliners" of this sub-branding, a lot might be riding on these guys! Click through to see the review.
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!
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!
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.
Forums user chuckdawg1999 has come by to share another toy video with us. This time it's Warrior Class Soundwave from RID Combiner Force. Chuck writes, "Soundwave is a surprising addition to the RID line. Based off a mix of its Animated and WFC/FOC designs, with a touch of Prime mixed in; Soundwave is the most involved figure from the Combiner Force subline thus far. While some of the panels are a bit fiddly to peg together, the vehicle mode ends up quite solid. One regret is the lack of a hand-held weapon, but at least the shoulder cannon was included."

Fresh off our forums, chuckdawg1999 has shared a quick video with us to show the new One Step Blurr figure from the RID Combiner Force line. Blurr has what may be a new transformation design, but whether it is or not, it's still a slick looking process going from one mode to the other. The video is embedded below, click through to get watching!
The RFC Reviews channel has posted a new video tonight for the Warrior Class Blurr coming in the second wave of RID Combiner Force product. In this video we learn that everybody has been calling the pricepoint wrong since the packages evidently say "Warriors Class" rather than Warrior, but also that Blurr is continuing the increasing excellence shown by the line over the last year or so, looking all around super-appealing. The video is embedded below, so click through and watch now!
TFormers Forums member chuckdawg1999
has reviewed the Legion Class version of Robots In Disguise Legion class Groundbuster, better known in the show as Groundpounder! (And known on certain printings of his instruction sheet as Groundbutter!) Chuck doesn't seem too taken with the figure, but I'll let him tell you about it. Keep reading to see the review!
Forums member chuckdawg1999 has shared another review with us, of the the second piece in the initial assortment of Activator Combiners from RID Combiner Force. Bumblebee and Stuntwing perform similarly to the previously seen Strongarm set, gaining a "Stealth Force" style augmented vehicle mode when the Mini-Con is attached, while still having a very basic robot form. You can get a good overview of what this particular set does in the video, which is embedded below.
This set is an interesting package. Drawing upon elements once found in MASK, Strongarm is a simplified transformer that springs up into a monster truck type vehicle. Trickout, Strongarms companion, is a fun little truck that serves its purpose. Most collectors will pass on this set, but kids will love it and it makes a fun desk toy.
Power Surge Sideswipe is part of the simplified line of RID figures. Sideswipe is a chunky robot, that reminds me of 80s Transformer. Activating the sounds is a bit awkward, with or without the Minicon attached. Most collectors will pass on this but I can really see kids enjoying it.

Having caught everyone by surprise with an unannounced debut at retail last month, we've got a review from our forums member TMan978 giving us a great look at Warrior Class Starscream! Much like Megatronus last year, this is debuting first as a Clash of The Transformers Toys R Us exclusive, but should appear at general retail a little later with some small variation to set the two apart. We've got the video embedded, so check out the full post to watch and get all the info on this figure!
