Courtesy of Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 we have another video review for the latest Transformers: Robots in Disguise Warrior class wave: Sideswipe, the teenage swordsbot! Check out the video embedded below for the wavemate of Jazz, and find out your fellow collector's thoughts on the toy - does it pass the bar?

Well, Hasbro can't win them all. Sideswipe has a great looking car mode, two tone paint and all, unfortunately that's where the compliments end. While the transformation is interesting, a flaw in the design prevents the torso from coming together properly and staying together, making posing the upper half of the figure impossible. Perhaps the inevitable repaint will somehow magically stay together, but I'm not holding out hope.

Thanks to sources provided by Sabreblade, we have the sad news that legendary voice actor John Stephenson has passed away at the age of 91. He had been suffering from Alzheimer's for some time and living in a nursing home. Among his many voice roles, he was known as the voice of Mr. Slate on The Flintstones, and to Transformers fans, he was the voices of Alpha Trion, Thundercracker, Windcharger, Huffer, Kup (seasons 3 and 4, not the movie), Devcon, and some smaller roles in the G1 cartoon.

The Internet Movie Database lists 232 credits for him as both an on-camera and voiceover actor and we are pretty certain that this is just a fraction of the work he did.

May you rest in peace sir.

The Transformers: Robots in Disguise line has been bringing together quite a few strands of the Transformers mythos, and the mystery behind new character Megatronus has yet to be cleared. We've heard of the Warrior class toy, we've seen both alt-mode and robot mode in the RID app - and now we have some screen caps featuring a battle between MEgatronus and Optimus Prime (who is also sporting a new body) in an upcoming episode of the show!

Check out the mirrored images below, via the Autobase Aichi Facebook page, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub.

In addition to yesterday's promo video, and of course, the Seibertron.com galleries, fellow member chuckdawg1999 has also just shared with us a video review of two Takara Tomy Transformers Adventure toys: TAV-08 Gregevor (Greejeeber) and TAV-13 Nemesis Prime. The latter is the one we've covered already, but the former, an homage to the 2000 RID line Rollbar, is in fact a male redeco of Strongarm, which you can find here for comparison. Check out the embedded clip below!

Takara always seems to deliver unique repaints that homage niche characters from their market, and black Optimus Primes. Gregevor is one of those homages going back to the early 2000's RID character Rollbar. Nemesis Prime I guess could be said is a tribute to Scourge/Black Convoy from the same line; even though there have been many takes on the black Prime over the years. Both are worth a look if you're interested in well done repaints.

Via the Mexican Hasbro Transformers site, we have stock images of the new Titan Changers Optimus Prime and Bumblebee from the Robots in Disguise animated show, with not much more information. The much reviled - by some parts of the Transformers collector community - Titan line (not the class) appears to be expanding, adding some more articulation and a 4-step transformation to their 'shampoo bottle' aesthetics! Check them out mirrored below.
