Hello everyone large and small, and welcome to another Seibertron.com pictorial review session! Today, we will be taking a close look at the 2 new Warrior class figures of the Robots in Disguise line: Blurr and Soundwave!
To begin, we will look at Blurr.
This figure is supposed to represent the Rescue Bots version of Blurr as he becomes the first Rescue Bot character to cross over into the more advanced toylines. Now mind you he does not look exactly like the character people came to love in Rescue Bots, but then again, did Sideswipe and Bumblebee look exactly the same between shows?
Overall, this figure does look really cool! His colors are pleasing to the eyes and he does have a pretty well thought out color scheme that makes him look pretty sexy.
Below, you will find a pair of comparisons, one with the Titans Return Hot Rod and the other with Combiner Force Primestrong for size comparisons.
He stands about your standard height for a deluxe/warrior figure, and his proportions looks similar to Hot Rod's in that the arms feel a bit too long and the shoulders a bit too high. But overall he still looks good.
His blaster is fairly cool looking, though the translucent plastic used for it would have been better in an actual solid blue, at least to me.
Inspired by Seibertronian Mr.Black, he can also cast a great running pose!
His backpack kind of keeps to itself, though it basically is a big, smooth, mostly translucent backpack. But it stays out the wave and doesn't hinder articulation at all, so it's no biggie.
His Transformation is simple yet fun and intuitive. Despite the robot mode look, he does not share any sort of Transformation trick with Prime Wheeljack.
The alt mode looks really good too. A sleek and sexy car that really looks like it can move fast. He looks really good next to Titans Return Hot Rod in this mode too. I wish something could have been put in the cockpit area since you can see right through it to his legs and the ground between his legs, but that's a minor quibble.
Now onto Soundwave:
This figure has been pretty hyped up, and I can see why. It is a pretty swell figure! The robot mode looks really cool, all beefy and brawny. He really uses his War for Cybertron design here, and it looks really good with the Prime headsculpt.
Now, something I will point out is that he really looks like a Prime Breakdown. Just looking at him next to Breakdown, they looks very similar. They even share locations of where their parts end up! If this character could get a repaint, Breakdown would be a Prime suspect! (so sorry)
He also looks fun deploying his legion of minions! (sorry, puns are funs). On this note, I will say that his posability in the arms is a bit troublesome. The shoulders really limit his different poses, just as a warning. He also has mid-torso rotation instead of waist rotation, which actually works out pretty well!
MOAR LIGHT PIPING!!!!
Transformation is really interesting and very fun! It is definitely unique and one that is fun to do again and again.
The alt mode looks pretty good too! Mind you the hands are fully visible, but it isn't really an issue. It looks big and mean and really does show his Highmoon Studios heritage here.
Now mind you, the big appearance is sort of deceiving. The underside ends up fairly hollow, but that is hardly an issue because no one displays their transformers in alt mode upsidedown or on their side.
Once again, you can really see a Breakdown appearance here too, and I would not doubt a retool of Soundwave as Breakdown down the road.
Also of note, his gun is capable of adjusting its angle, so you can not only rotate the gun, but also point it up in the air!
And now the 2 figures together:
Overall, these are 2 fairly good figures. Now mind you, these are not the Fracture's or the Thunderhoof's or the Bisk's of the line in that they are not completely mind-blowing, but they are both still pretty good. They are worth having for sure. So head on out to your stores and pick up one today!
After having his face shown off for the first time earlier this week it appears as if Cogman is getting a toy! Weibo user 变形金刚改造工厂的淘宝店 has shown off another one of those packaging images that revealed the Infernocus combiner, deluxe Megatron, voyager Nitro, and deluxe Skullitron. No name nor robot mode is seen on the box art, but based on the alt mode seen and the rumors, this would appear to be Cogman. Check out the image below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!
Though the recent Toys-R-Us exclusive Titans Return Chaos on Velocitron boxset has been out for a couple of days now, new things about the set still end up coming through. Initial CGI renders of the boxset did not include every mode of the included figures; including Laser Prime's jet mode - well, if that's was what had you on the fence, fear no more for we finally have an image of the flight mode, courtesy of fellow board member Diem. Check it out below and tell us what you think in the comments!
Just yesterday we learnt of a new Generations style Prowl and Jetfire figure released for the Asian market as part of the Cyber Battalion line. New images of these toys out of their boxes have popped up on INCHIKIBANCYO's Twitter. We can also see a box for the Optimus Prime of the same line which is being rereleased in a slightly different deco. One fun thing to note is that Prowl appears to have knees making that a first for this line. For those out there wondering, these are very similar to upscaled cyberverse toys with limited articulation and are not made to be distributed widely in the US (or other countries other than BRICS). This makes them ridiculously hard to find on the secondary market. If anyone is interested in these, keep your eyes peeled on Asian vendors like Robot Kingdom or stateside importers. But fair warning, there will either be a high mark up for import or a high shipping fee and if it's the same as the last time they were offered, once they are gone from those sites they are impossible to find afterwards. Keep an eye on these boards because we will let you know when we find out how we can get a hold of them.
Fellow Seibertronian, Carytheone has spotted a 20% off sale for all Robots in Disguise toys at his local Toys R Us Store. According to the smaller print on the sign it will run from 3/24 to 4/15 which is plenty of time to grab a figure that you have been wanting.
If you don't have a Toys R Us close by don't worry! Some figures from Robots in Disguise, Rescue Bots and Titans Return have been marked down on ToysRus.com. Free shipping is available for purchases over 29$.
Just when we thought the mystery of Titans Return Brainstorm was over, it pops back up again! Today in a Hasbro catalogue for the Polish market, it was revealed that Brainstorm will be getting some sort of European release, along with some listings for The Last Knight, Rescue Bots, and Robots in Disguise toys. It's unknown if this elusive toy will be an exclusive to a particular store, or how wide-spread the release will be, so if you happen to spot one in the coming weeks, please let us know! Here's some screenshots of his listing (with new product shots and European packaging), and you can find the entire Hasbro catalogue here!
Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for any updates on this story.
Thanks to multiple source outlets, we have a swarm of new in-hand images for you to check out of the latest round of Takara's Movie the best line!
First up, from twitter user アルフェス2010 we have a slew of new images of the leader class Optimus Prime! This figure is a re-release of the Buster Optimus Prime mold that comes with his swords, blaster, hooks, and even his bladed knuckles!
The same twitter user also gives us some in-hand images of the new Dinoriders Grimlock and Strafe! Grimlock is a repaint of his Age of Extinction voyager toy while Strafe is a repaint of his deluxe toy. Both come with a small rider figure, with Optimus Prime mounting his mighty dino-steed and Bumblebee finally living up to his name and soaring through the clouds on Strafe's back.
Hobby Search continues the new images with packaging images of the above mentioned dinoriders, with Grimlock and Strafe found here respectively.
Finally. Lapooza Mega store has posted a Facebook video of the 2 little figures, Prime and Bee, that come with the Dinoriders. Check out all the images and video below!
Several Seibertronians have let us know that the delayed TFSS 5.0 figures have now started to reach their owners! The first box contains a pair of deluxes in the form of Fractyl and Lifeline, with little Scorponok and Quickslinger joining the larger pair. If you ordered your TFSS 5.0 figures, start checking your mail, your figures are on their way!
Fellow (and new!) Seibertronian MachineHeart88 has shared with us a video review / look at the new and upcoming Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece Megatron, in its second incarnation in the line! Check it out below, along with some images from TFW2005's user tco's in hand images of the Decepticon leader in his many faces.
This is the video on hand Megatron 2.0 prepared to customers who have ordered before
The product is very good at painting. Good match with large metal parts at gun mode.
Via another Seibertronian, MadProject, we have one new image of a previously only glimpsed Decepticon character in Transformers: The Last Knight's toy line-up: Voyager class Nitro! The image, found on Weibo, seems to come from an instruction sheet, and has very little details other than the black and white rendering of the toy. Nonetheless, check it out below!
