The latest One Step Changers from Robots in Disguise have been spotted at retail in Walmart at Montreal, Canada at 11.92$ cdn. While the wave actually includes Grimlock, Bumblebee and Fixit as well, the new figures now on the shelves are One Step Drift, Fracture and fan favourite Thunderhoof. Below are some photos. These should hit the US and the rest of Canada soon and when they do, be sure to report it in your respective sightings thread. In the meantime, be sure to check out the reviews to see if these might be for you.

Chefatron posted video reviews of these figures 2 days ago, along with one of Night Ops Bumblebee:

Would you like to do a news post about these now, or wait until your old pal Chuck reviews them? Because that's what you've always been doing.

I guess you didnt read the entire article or skimmed it too quickly to notice that I included a link to Chuck's review of these. He reviewed them last week and he was first, hence why he was newsed on the front page. Maybe you missed that, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled on Seibertron.com :)

Also KirbyForce1, every time you point out what we missed or haven't news'd, we've told you to make sure you submit it at news@seibertron.com and I have yet to see any emails from you. You can't really get mad when you don't formally submit anything. Personally between other news sites, online retailers, Youtubers, Twitter, Facebook, and other stuff... I'm watching like 50+ things for TF news. And these sources were shared with me by the other news staff, so they're watching them too. We have our eyes on a lot of things, but we can't catch everything.

So once again, if you have something you want to share, or have something you think is news worthy, drop us a line at news@seibertron.com.

Robots in Disguise is on a roll with news these days, with the first look at the Clash of Transformers redecos and Megatronus, the first sighting of the latest one steps with Thunderhoof and now the first look at new decos in the Warrior and Legion class. Robot Kingdom's new case preoders for Wave 4 wave 4 Warriors and wave 4 Legion class figures gives us our first look in toy form of Warrior Gold Grimlock and Night Ops Bumblebee as well as Legion Alpine Sideswipe and Night Ops Bumblebee. These are all repaints of their initial molds. Each of these of course were first seen in the game app but we now know that the G1 redeco of Warrior Class Grimlock is a reality.

I hope that gold ends up being more gold than the orange it appears in this picture. If so I may end up with twins dinos. Color me excited.

Hasbro needs to change either the orange on Grimlock or change the packaging. Both the name/description and the package art are misleading. I understand that toys might "differ" from the original picture, but this is borderline legal action territory here, surely?

Bumblebee's yellow wheels reminds me of Chinese knockoffs on Ebay. I think Sirtoys might start selling them that way, by accident...

I doubt it, but I hope they did something to fix the elbow issue on Warrior Grimlock.

Sooooooooo, that's where all the paint for the first run went. :-P :lol:

Am I jerk because the only one I'm interested in is the Red Alert edition Sideswipe?
Grim looks pretty cool too.

Oh cool, the images of the Warriors are big enough to scan their codes into the app. Neato.

Probably not.

I will definitely be getting that new Grimlock. My only other RID figure so far is Strongarm so this one will be a welcome addition. I love that he has the battle mask. Hopefully they will change his colors in the show to these.

I am already very bored with this toyline... only 2-3 new figures per wave, wave's are spread out for months, and they're just the same characters in different sizes or colors. Why they're not offering all the Decepticons in deluxe class is beyond me.

Heroes sell better and don't need new molds. It's a double win for hasbro. And plus, we will be getting 3 new decepticon warriors soon but Hasbro is waiting for SDCC or Botcon to show them.

I think getting this Grimlock might be worthwhile even if the scale is really off. So far, I have only been getting the Takara versions because they are the same price and have way better paint apps. But judging from the past, redecos seem to be exclusive to each company. And while Gregevor and Phantom Steeljoe mightbe exclusive to Takara, I feel this G1 Grimlock will be exclusive to Hasbro. I am sure he will look better in hand and in dino mode. Looking forward to those pictures.

Gah! That is not "gold". I am so sad, I may have to pass on this now. I liked the gold on the package but this just looks like that hideous pseudo metallic orange on those ugly versions of the AOE Grimlock.

I agree. I'm not a huge fan of the series, and I'm not being a completest on the line, but the few I have I like.

I also picked up the Takara Nemesis Prime, and now I want to get the regular release Deluxe Prime. I like those so much I may get some of the legion classes to round out a small display.
