has posted a new round of characters as revealed by the Robots In Disguise
smartphone app! We've got names now for the two mystery combiners used in recent promotional artwork: Ultrabee
! New characters were also revealed, including a third four-part Crash Combiner. Keep reading for the full list, with photos!
Smyths Toys in the UK has posted the official photos of RID One-Step Sideswipe & Blurr! Both look good, with Blurr being an all-new character and mold to RID - and it's worth noting that Blurr's design continues the design aesthetic that stretches across most of the vehicles we've gotten the past few years with Cybertronian vehicle modes! Keep reading to have a closer look.
Surprisingly, Optimus Prime hasn't had that many appearances in the RID One-Step line. This version from the Combiner Force sub-line actually mimics the Warrior Class transformation somewhat, with the cab becoming the arms. Like all One-Step changers, Prime makes for a fun desk toy and is worth a purchase.
On Facebook today, Loopaza has shared a nice set of photos looking at the Warrior Class RID Soundwave from the Combiner Force sub-branding. In the photos, the figure looks quite poseable in robot mode, and we get a bit of a comparison with Transformers Prime Soundwave. Plus the photographer spent some time tinkering with some fan mode concepts to emulate G1 Soundwave a bit. We've got the photos mirrored for convenience, so keep reading and take a look!
Combiner Force has already featured Crash Combiners that let two robots merge, but now we know a bit more about the next step up, with full team combiners. Thanks to Philip Ayres and Milo Lopez we have some photos of promo art pieces, one at a display in an ASDA store, and one on a bus in Asia. Both feature a combiner made of Team Bee, seemingly consisting of only four individuals. The bus also shows an evident Menasor, though it's unclear how many characters comprise that combiner. We've mirrored the photos, keep reading to have a look!
Just in from the official Dickie Toys site we have a rather large update with many Transformers RID products posted to the site.
The listings include Diecast singles and sets, R/C Racers, Mini-Con Deployers, Road Warriors, Mission Racers, Optimus Prime Trailer, Optimus Prime Battle Truck, RC Flip and Race, RC Turbo Racers, and more. Read on for images and product info below.
Walmart has been undergoing a periodic reset of its toy aisles during the last couple of weeks, resulting among other things in most locations now stocking the 2017 Robots in Disguise "Combiner Force" line. And at one location, special product tags may have given an insight towards otherwise unsolicited future products. The Crash Combiner assortment seems to have listed a set of "DRAGSTR N WILDBREAK", which one could not be blamed for speculating might be Stunticon themed, as RID interpretations of Dragstrip and probably Wildrider. We're likely to see more about this next month at Toy Fair. Keep reading for the full size shelf photo.
Lastmaximal on Allspark shared an interesting discovery today. Spotting some of the latest RID Warrior assortment at a Toys R Us in the Philippines, something unexpected stood out about the batch's Windblade. Indeed, while seemingly retaining the same plastic colors, the deco has been reworked to give more color variation to the robot mode. But more surprising is the debut of the mold's alternate head with sculpted battle mask! Lastmaximal shared a few pictures of the new Windblade in package, which we've mirrored below. Keep reading to have a look!
Thanks again to Cybertron Philippines we have images of the entire initial waves of the Combiner Force branding of Robots in Disguise. Some pricepoints seem to be reflecting waves one and two, whether that's both being offered simultaneously or indicative of product reships in the later cases is unclear. Likewise, there are a sizeable number of repackagings of earlier 1- and 3-step changer toys in the new packaging style. At the same time, this shoot gives us looks at Warrior Skywarp, Soundwave, Blurr, Crash Combiner Skyhammer, and more first run toys in their packages, and you can see it all in the gallery below!
The Transformers Facebook page shared out a new video just before the holiday, giving an in-depth look at RID's Combiner Force redesign of Soundwave. The catch is, it's the gimmick platform figure! This seems to be a first reveal of an Activator Class figure for Soundwave, who deploys weapons when a Mini-Con interacts, and designer Sean Carmen Isabella goes over it and the process that led to the visual style in a lot of detail, including a demo of the transformation. We've taken screencaps, which you can find along with the video below!
UK toy shop The Entertainer has posted images of the new Combiner Force One-Step Changers! The first wave features new molds of series mainstays Optimus Prime, Drift, and of course Bumblebee! If you're in the UK and One-Step figures are your thing as a collector - and at this point we may be talking to as many as three people - The Entertainer seems to have all three in stock now for 7.33 GBP. Keep reading for links and for the photos!
The Transformers Instagram page has posted a new photo showing two iterations of Soundwave meeting. The star is the upcoming Warrior Class RID Soundwave, which is a fusion of elements from the Transformers Prime
appearance, with broad strokes from the High Moon Studios War For/Fall Of Cybertron games. The photo was even large enough to be able to take a crop of RID Soundwave and get a nice look at the figure - a view we've made more distinct by removing the color from the surroundings. Keep reading to see!
We've got a selection of new stock photos showing off part of the 2017 range of Robots in Disguise toys. Combiner Force debuted the weekend of New York Comic Con in two styles: Mini-Con-triggered Activator Combiners, seen here as Bumblebee and Strongarm, and Crash Combiner two packs featuring paired character combinations, starting with Bumblebee and Sideswipe, and Optimus and Strongarm. We have images for all of them, including packaging shots. It's all mirrored below, so click through to see!
