Seibertron.com is proud to present our newest toy galleries, this time featuring the 2015 RID (Robots In Disguise) cartoon characters!
New Galleries: Minicon Deployers Fracture with Airazor and Drift with Jetstorm
Drift, the Samurai and Fracture, the...well, random nasty Decepticon (voiced by none other than Kevin Pollak!) compete head to head with their Mini-Con partners in tow. Each bot is dangerous on their own, but deadly when together!
The Deployer figures do fully transform from robot mode to vehicle and back, although it tends to be heavily simplified and is built around the launcher and it's gimmick. What gimmick, you ask? Well deployment of the Mini-Cons, of course!
In vehicle mode, Drift launches Jetstorm out of the nose of his car form to send him blazing (literally, I might add!) into battle! Because of this, Drift's car mode tends to suffer visually, where as Fracture wins this round because of his altmode being that of a hoverbike, he comes with a sidecar that doubles as his deployment launcher!
While the articulation and transformations are simplified, it is the first Deluxe Class sized Fracture we've received in the toyline, so far and much like Drift, you have to buy him to obtain the Mini-Con he's partnered with. (They're worth it. Fun little buggers!)
That's not all! Collect the entire waves of Mini-Cons for form Energon beasts using their translucent armor pieces! Wave 1 creates what seems to be an Energon tiger, while bits of wave 1 and most of the armor from wave 2 creates a shark! Who knows what wave 3 has in store, but it's going to be fun to see! (I personally cannot wait. These are fun little gadgets, both the Deployers and the Mini-Cons. Throw in the extra of Energon build a figure and you're in for a treat!)
Enough from me, on with the show! Click on any of the images below to be taken to each figure's respective gallery:
TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE – A NEW AUTOBOT MISSION
FIRST TIME ON DVD, BRING HOME THE ADVENTURES FROM CARTOON NETWORK’S
TOP-RATED ANIMATED SERIES TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE
PRODUCED BY HASBRO STUDIOS
Special Collectible DVD Arrives in Stores Nationwide on October 20, 2015
From Shout! Factory Kids
The lure of TRANSFORMRES saga begins a new chapter as BUMBLEBEE and a team of AUTOBOT action heroes embark on a new mission to protect and save Earth from a new faction of DECEPTICONS. Hasbro Studios’ new top-rated animated series TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE, which airs on Cartoon Network, is the latest installment of TRANSFORMERS franchise and builds on the lore of both the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS. Featuring an all-new animation style, this new hit series is filled with exciting, action adventures and great humor for fans of all age.
On October 20, 2015, Shout! Factory Kids, in collaboration with Hasbro Studios, will release TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE – A NEW AUTOBOT MISSION DVD, featuring five entertaining episodes and special behind-the-scenes bonus content. Packed with unforgettable AUTOBOT and DECEPTICON characters and action adventures, this new collectible DVD delivers fun-filled home entertainment that kids, parents and loyal fans will enjoy! This DVD is priced to own with a suggested retail price of $14.93.
The new mission begins as BUMBLEBEE must step up to be leader in the years after we left the AUTOBOTS in TRANSFORMERS PRIME. Summoned by OPTIMUS PRIME to save Earth from a new DECEPTICON threat, BUMBLEBEE puts his light-hearted mettle to the test after assembling a rouge team of AUTOBOTS action heroes. BUMBLEBEE must balance his job fighting off evil with being equal parts squad leader and coach to a rascally team that needs constant coaxing to learn how to work together. The results are comical when the cool rebel SIDESWIPE, elite guard cadet STRONGARM, bombastic dinobot GRIMLOCK and overly-excited mini-con FIXIT must balance keeping the team together with chasing and capturing their new enemies in each adventure-filled episode.
TRANSFORMERS ROBOTS IN DISGUISE features the voice talent of Will Friedle (Boy Meets World), Darren Criss (Glee), Constance Zimmer (Entourage), Khary Payton (Teen Titans Go!), Mitchell Whitfield (TMNT) and Peter Cullen who voices OPTIMUS PRIME when he makes cameo appearances in this series.

Pilot, Part 1
Pilot, Part 2
More Than Meets The Eye
A Look Behind-The-Scenes
Total Running Time: Approx. 110 minutes

Fellow Seibertronian o.supreme has let us know that it looks like streaming service Netflix has finished uploading the last of season 3 of Transformers: Rescue Bots, meaning that the entire run so far of 78 (!) episodes is now available to watch on demand!
(With the caveat that Sabrblade points out, of two Season 2 episodes having been listed under Season 3, instead. But if that doesn't bother you, binge-watch away!)
If you're waiting to add the full first season of Transformers: Robots in Disguise to your Transformers home video library, well, we don't have that news for you yet, but thanks to Seibertronian o.supreme we've got a heads up on a Pre-order at Amazon for Transformers: Robots in Disguise: A New Autobot Mission. Shout! Factory will be releasing this DVD on October 27th, 2015.
Judging by the running time of 110 minutes, it appears this will bring you the first five episodes of the new series.
Will this tide you over until a Blu-ray release? Or maybe this season's episodes just reserved a spot on your DVR for a few months longer? Chat about this and anything else show related by replying to this post, or by visiting our ongoing Robots in Disguise show discussion thread in the Energon Pub.
Our resident video reviewer and frequent front page guest, chuckdawg1999, has posted a new video review!
Today's subject in question? Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Gold Armor Grimlock!
Here's what Chuck has to say:
chuckdawg1999 wrote:Knowing the history of Transformers, repaints are a given. When it comes to Grimlock, you can put even money on the repaint being some sort of homage to the G1 look, which is what we have with Gold Armor Grimlock. Now this isn't just a repaint, the head has been retooled with a face plate to better resemble the classic visage. Physically there's nothing new to the mold but if you're a fan of that classic look, this is worth the pick up.

Robots In Disguise (2015) Deployers (wave 1) and Mini-Cons (wave 1) have been sighted at retail!
I know, you're thinking "Wait, haven't those been out for a while?" and you're right, they have. Heck, I even found them last week and posted it in the forums, but didn't news it because I thought they had surely been front paged by the time I had found them. That was my mistake, so I must apologize.
I'm not the only one to have found them, fellow Seibertronian Cobotron has them in hand as well, and unlike me he decided to share the images of his findings! (I really, really dropped the ball on this one, eh?)
Do what I didn't do and share those sightings with us, you just might get your name on the front page! If you have a sightings submission and want to see your name on our front page, send us an email using the sightings form, share the find in our sightings forum, and remember...

Artist Jose Lopez has posted some new Transformers: Robots In Disguise concept art on his Instagram account. These feature some renditions of Strongarm, Fixit, Russel, Bumblebee and Denny, who looks far more like Matches Malone (one of Batman's undercover disguises). The character of Denny had changed quite a bit since conception, as we already knew from our very own Jon Bailey who auditioned for the role, and this is further proof of that.
Also, notice how Fixit initially had threads instead of wheels to move. We also get a bit of an insight into the Bumblebee design from Mr. Lopez:
“Bumblebee from Transformers Robots in Disguise. It was really tough concepting a new look for TF while still wrapping Prime. But we are very happy with the look, plus these guys are easier to draw haha! “
The lovely folks over at TFcon USA - taking place in Charlotte in 2015 - have updated their site with the first official guest for the event: voice of Optimus Primal from Transformers Beast Wars, Garry Chalk! Find out more from their official announcement page here, and scroll down below for a snippet.
We are very happy to welcome Transformers voice actor Garry Chalk to TFcon Charlotte 2015. The voice of Optimus Primal in Beast Wars and Beast Machines and Optimus Prime in the Armada, Energon and Cybertron cartoons, he also voiced Generation 1 Megatron in an episode of Beast Wars. Additionally he is known to GIJOE fans as the voices of Pathfinder and Metalhead in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, and He-Fans as the voices He-Man in The New Adventures of He-Man, and Man-at-Arms in the 2002 He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Mr. Chalk will be taking part in Q&A panels and autograph sessions with the attendees of the world’s largest fan-run Transformers convention all weekend long.
