The Transformers Design Team was really excited to show off the new Cyclone-Type Mini-Cons, which are spheroid Transformers that look a good deal like Bakugan. They'll be joining the existing Buzzsaw and Torpedo-types in 2016's assortments.




The first wave of Mini-Con Singles will debut the Cyclones with Decepticon Back, a purple and green insectoid that looks like a combination of Revenge of the Fallen Scalpel and a Star Wars Destroyer Droid; and Decepticon Hammer, a dragon-looking Mini-Con. Their wavemates will be Blizzard Strike Slipstream, a blue recolor of this year's Buzzsaw; and Swelter, a Torpedo. All the Mini-Con Singles will continue to include sprues of clear plastic armor and weapons - Swelter has a particularly cool set of flame armor!

Singles Wave 2 will add Cyclone Ransack alongside Scorch Strike Buzzsaw Jetstorm along Blizzard Strike Torpedo Glacius.



New Deployers are coming to support the Cyclones too! The first Cyclone Deployer is Overload, whose name Hasbro recently (re-)trademarked. He's a chunky bot who turns into a tank, and his face reminds me of sometime Wreckers leader Impactor. His Cyclone Mini-Con is named Backtrack. He'll be shipping with the previously seen Blizzard Strike Drift with Buzzsaw Jetstorm.



Wave 2 will include another beast-type Decepticon named Crazybolt, a Cyclone Deployer who ships with a recolor of Hammer. The second Deployer in Wave 2, if any, was not shown.

There's also a Mini-Con 4-Pack due out, featuring a Scorch Strike vs. Blizzard Strike theme. On the Blizzard Strike side we've got a recolor of Swelter (yes, really!) with new Cyclone Mini-Con Backtrack. Scorch Strike features new Cyclone Undertone and a recolor of Buzzsaw Beastbox.



Lastly, we've got a new type of set, the Mini-Con Battle Packs! The aim of this assortment is to pack Mini-Cons with main characters - and give those main characters impressive arsenals of weapons to boot! Wave 1 pits Optimus Prime against Cyclone Mini-Con Lord Doomitron, and gives Prime an elaborate set of clear-plastic armor that becomes a gigantic hammer! Meanwhile, Sideswipe will face off against the Cyclone Anvil using samurai-themed armor that becomes a large capture claw.

Wave 2 pits Bumblebee against Cyclone Major Mayhem using armor that turns into a different kind of claw weapon from Sideswipe's. Grimlock will face the Cyclone Back using armor that makes him look very similar to Age of Extinction Grimlock and becomes a dino-head weapon in the style of Beast Wars Megatron.

The design team from Hasbro had a blast showing off the new RID stuff, and even if the second season of the show does turn out to be its last, it seems like the toyline is going out with a bang. Thanks to the folks at Hasbro and Justin Aclin at Hunter PR for the invite to their Q&A session!

On Youtube this weekend, Chefatron has posted a couple of videos for new Robots in Disguise toys that have started to hit in Asia. First up is a pair of videos for two new Legion figures reflecting some of the updated Decepticon cast in the new season of the show, Cyclonus and Heatseeker. The videos will show off the basics of the two figures, including transformation - and sometimes the best part of these tiny figures are the clever ways they have for getting from one form to another! Both videos can be found in the full post below.
We've got a first look in video form at the just-released Stormshot from the new assortment of Robots in Disguise Warrior Class figures, thanks to chuckdawg1999 from our forums! Leading off the Combiner Force sub-branding, Stormshot is an all new mold Autobot jet. While the video sadly fails to provide any information about the poseability of the robot mode, we get to see the transformation and a little detail on the accessories. The video is embedded below, so click through to take a look!
The official Transformers Facebook page has posted a new video featuring the latest Soundwave figure drew on 3 decades of history for inspiration. The video walks through the many incarnations, all of which are based on the original G1 Character. What IS somewhat interesting is we get the same Prime Soundwave in the cartoon, but a new RID looking figure as a toy. Watch the clip now for the at the Official Transformers page.
Thanks to the fine folks at ASM, we have a pair of quick videos demonstrating the newly revealed Combiner Force sets from Robots in Disguise. The two packs feature a pair of figures that combine top to bottom to make a larger robot, much like Transformers Energon, but now with fun automorph style features that engage when the toys are connected together. The first videos shows the combination, and the second shows an individual figure being posed. Both are embedded, so click through to take a look!
