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:

Not feeling these guys.

I will be sad if this is the only Warrior-scale Fracture we get. I love the character and wish he had a better toy. I like the character so much I'd go out and buy this in a heartbeat if I could remove the deployer attachment without having to use tools.

As is, saddened by missed opportunity.

I don't want Drift, just Jetstorm....
Fracture I like a little bit better, still want him more for the Mini-Con.

Also, shouldn't Slipstream be the one packaged with Drift? I seem to remember Jetstorm not like Drift that much.

Then again, so too was Drift a bounty hunter as well.

The overbearing gimmick, the lack of articulation, looking kinda like they couldn't decide on being main line or Construct-Bots, those are all pretty bad. But truth be told I think it's more damning the little guys can't plug into the big bots' arms.



.... and Drift STILL doesn't have his 'stache in the right color.

It really is. I thought both Drifts should have tabs on his arms for Mini-Cons. I mean really, that's basically how Slipstream and Jetstorm travel. Same with Airazor and Divebomb. With Fracture that might be slightly harder to pull off though 'cause of the way they designed him. But with the Drifts? No excuse. Its a pair of small tabs on his fore-arms, that look to me like they end up as his car doors. At least on the deluxe figure.

I heard somewhere that any Mini-Con is compatible with either deployer, can any verify that?

I (finally!) found wave 1 yesterday on my way home from work, and I picked up Divebomb on a whim. He's so cool! Not only are the colors fantastic, he's just a fun little guy to fiddle with. The clear energon bits are a big win for me, the effect is great in both modes.

Would it be nice if they had at least basic arm swivels? Yeah, but I knew what I was getting when I grabbed it, I just wanted to snag one to check out. It's won me over on the mini-con portion of the line for sure.

The deployers on the other hand... well they're kinda terrible. I don't plan to pick up either of them, but I sincerely hope we get a proper deluxe Fracture at some point down the line.

They're not just 'kinda', they definitely are terrible. It would have been cool, if it had been a slot launcher in they're chest, and were also satisfying voyager class figures; but, as they are - definitely garbage >:oP

The warriors look very good. The deployers are ok, but I wish they weren't all bricks :BOT:

Rounding out the deluge of new galleries for Robots in Disguise and Transformers Adventures toys comes the three most recent Takara Warrior Class figures: Drift, Sideswipe and Jazz! It is very interesting how the Takara deco can either really improve the figure, like in the case of Jazz' vehicle mode (you have to see it to believe it) or a different shade of plastic, like with Sideswipe and Drift. Take a look and let us know which of these is worth importing! All figures available for your perusal by clicking on any image below, of course.

Oh, I'm right there with you. This is straight-up garbage (just remember, all that paint was sacrificed for all of those easy-change pieces of $hit)

I am still not over that heavy retooling spent on those 3 step changers.

Yup, just remember that every time you wonder where all the :CON: 's are :-x


It may be a little vicious (yet, probably true), but between these easy-things, and the existence of a superior simple series, I just think the rid'15 easy-things have 'corporate suit decision' scribbled all over them >:oP

Sideswipe and Drift are also significantly different. Different shades or "oranges" on Drift and "reds" on Sideswipe. Sideswipe also has different text and the black in his vehicle mode is replaced with red on Takara's version. Sideswipe's wheels are also different. Drift has red paint on his vehicle mode doors, plus his goatee is painted.

Yeah, TT's Drift is staggeringly better on all accounts (especially his face)

Doubtful, apparently some of the 'clash' sideswipes' shoulders hold >:oP

The shoulders seem the same on Takara's version. Haven't opened my Clash of the Transformers Sideswipe yet. Will update you guys when I do his gallery in the next week hopefully.
