Some possibly big news has been hinted at in the recent update to the Transformers: Robots in Disguise Game App. The character section where one unlocks characters after purchasing the toys has been updated with the following characters: Megatronus, Prowl, Ironhide and Razorclaw Razorpaw.

While this concurs with the previous rumour of a Megatronus figure being released, as well as finally giving us an idea of the character's look, the toy class indicated offers more possible hints of things to come. One of the previous listings that this app revealed was One Step Thunderhoof (also included below for reference), which had his class name written atop the locked character. In his case, it was a One Step class toy (which was later confirmed). These new characters have different class names, Ultra and Champion, which are not classes available among the toys yet. This could simply be for the app, but the fact that it is directly related to the toys does make this an interesting possibility. To add to this theory, we can see that the Megatronus character has other toy classes behind him, which shows that the Ultra toy can be a separate entity from the rumoured Warrior class figure.

The Megatronus image also lines up perfectly with what was seen in the japanese intro:

Megatronus just looks like an Optimus Prime retool. He's probably the Fallen.

So I guess that they are going all in on the Covenant of Primus original 13 Primes stuff in the new show. That sounds really interesting.

I was kind of hoping that this character would turn out to be Galvatron, but I'm still excited for it.

I certainly hope so. I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting to see more of them since they consolidated the whole mythos about them.

Since the RID2015 Cartoon series decepticons on earth. Are robots with beastial elements that transform into vehicles. Hoping this RID Megatron is a Leader class toy that is a Triple changer. that can Transform into a Robot, Then Wolf and Cybertronian Jet mode.

"Wold"?
Looking at keyboard
Ah, "Wolf"! Gotcha.

Honestly, I don't think such a mold could pull this off. A DRAGON can come out way more easely out of a jet than a wolf for sure.

Still, I do like the "anthro" Decepticon concept. I wonder if these forms would ever be explained? My random guess is some sort of McGuffin Device fused the Predacons and Decepticons together, creating that weird hybrid species of transformers.

Figured RID Megatronus's Jet mode could look like a Cybetronian style jet mode. Similar to Transformer Prime, Megatron's jet mode. Think making the wolf mode have wings. would help the Cybertronian jet mode look better.

I heard that the creators said on Twitter somewhere that there was a scene cut from the first episode's beginning with Prowl that shows that he is Bumblebee and Strongarm's boss.




Would explain why the show starts so abrupt.




No source besides one of the Creators twitter but I have seen multiple people say this so it seems like its true I'll edit this post when I can confirm.

I find it odd hat they would have a Prowl and Ironhide toy in RID possibly on the shelves the same time or close to the same time as there are expected to be CW toys on the shelves. Or one is much further down the line than I think, or one is much sooner than I think.

Interesting, I guess.

Maybe the rebirth of the Cybertronian race in "Predacons Rising" brought with it a lot more diversity?

The Robots in Disguise App update which brought us the first image of Megatronus, also brought lots of other updates. This was my first time using the app, and while some new character classes do not seem associated to toys (such as the Champions, Desert Optimus and Cybertron Underbite ), there is a section which shows which toys have been unlocked. This section gives us a good idea at the toys that will probably be released. There are several repeating themes, such as a “Gold” Grimlock which sports a deco akin to G1, a night Bumblebee which has been a constant stealth deco since the first movie, and “clash” decos which point towards more evidence of a rumoured “Clash of the Transformers” subline. The more notable redeco is an Ultra Magnus using the Optimus Prime Legion mold. There is also another unannounced class that appears, along with the Ultra Class, called Titan Changer. This last one is a head scratcher since so far, Titan meant a non transforming class of toys. This may be another simplified toy class to go with the Hyperchange line.

Also, pictures provided by autobase aichi (who also took pictures of the other character variants) show Megatronus’ alt mode. Since the Megatronus character is unlockable in the game and can be transformed in game, the blogger unlocked him and snapped a photo of his alt mode (I didn’t have enough points to unlock). The alt mode seems to be a cybertonian tank (gasp!).

So Megatronus will be a deluxe-class H-tank? Meh. Why are there no "voyager" scale figures in this line?

He is getting an Ultra Figure too. It was described in the list and there is a picture of it here: http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/first-image-of-megatronus-and-new-robots-in-disguise-toys-and-classes-hinted-in-the-app/32798/

Also, since Grimlock and Optimus are also available in "deluxe" class, we need a megatronus in that same class to scale with them.

Guys Prowl was going to be in the first episode but his scene was cut and here is my evidence a tweet from one of the show's staff.

Poor Ultra-Magnus being reduced to a repaint of Optimus and not getting his own section and being in the Optimus section.
