The Transformers Robots in Disguise 2015 galleries keep rolling along with a couple new figures that we have not seen a whole lot of. Our new high quality gallery inductees include 3-Step Hyperchange Bumblebee and Grimlock. These Hyperchange toys are much larger that stand at 8 to 10 inches tall and as the packaging suggests, transforms in 3 steps. When you are done checking out these guys, you can also check out our galleries of the Robots in Disguise 2015 Legion class toys. Click on any of the below images to see the full galleries and stay tuned right here at Seibertron.com for more Robots in Disguise 2015 galleries as well as many more Transformers galleries to come.

The Transformers Robots in Disguise 2015 galleries keep coming your way with the most anticipated figures of the line thus far: the warrior class. This is the class that is most representative of the deluxe class. Also, these figures are the most collector oriented, according to Hasbro, since they are the most articulated figures from the line. Our new high quality gallery inductees include Bumblebee, Steeljaw, Strongarm and Grimlock.

When you are done checking out these guys, you can also check out our galleries of the Robots in Disguise 2015 Legion class toys and Robots in Disguise 2015 3-step toys.

The trick with getting Steeljaw to stand properly is to use the wheels as his back heels. If you stand him properly with the wheels as his heels, he works just fine.

Kinda depressing how unpainted the package art makes the figures look, especially Strongarm.

I'm gonna wait and see what Takara does with these in their Transformers Adventure line since these toys need a serious amount of more paint to be show-accurate.

Bumblebee has some great potential, and I could think of a half dozen other characters he could be repainted as with maybe a new head.

Steel Jaw is also looking really good. I think I will pick him up for sure.

Wow. I didn't realize how inaccurate Steeljaw's headsculpt was until I looked at the figure in-package. Not that I was all that excited about him, but it's clear that we've got another Skylynx/Darksteel on our hands.

Gonna need an upgrade kit for that. >:oP

I don't it's that far off. The toy just has a more pronounced snout than the CG model has. Let's see if Takara's Adventure version can bring out the cartoon face better without all that silver on Hasbro's RID version.

After all, the head on the packaging art isn't quite the same as the cartoon one either:

Why are we demanding that the toys need more paint? They are painted enough as it is. :D

I guess Sabrblade. But as someone who had begged their parents for painted transformers in the 1980's I always get them chipped. Where as the colored plastic of the post 1980's transformers look prettier longer.

I think I agree with Towline. There are certain things that should absolutely be painted (like most of the Transformers faces or face shields), but I don't like the current usage of paints to make large areas of plastic look the "same" color by painting it instead of doing the plastic as that color. I also am frustrated with how many paint applications have flaws. Case in point: I just got my first shipment of Combiner Wars Legends figures. All 5 Thundercrackers had various paint flaws. It's frustrating to say the least!

Unless he gets a Warrior figure, Underbite shall be the only one of these I'll get.

Ever since I bought one step heicopter drift, I have looked less down upon these 1 steps. They may be for a younger audience but that doesnt make their engineering any less impressive than other classes. It's just a bit harder to appreciate.

If Seibertron has the time, I would love his thoughts on which he recommends in these. Underbite looks really fun and so far this is the only class in which he appears, so I am definitely tempted.

I currently own 3 one-steppers. AoE Grimlock I bought on a lark because I wanted to see how these things work. Rollbar I got because I drive a Sonic and he is a Sonic. Then I got AoE Prowl because I just love Prowl.

The 2 cars aren't super impressive from an engineering standpoint, since you just fold the legs from the front to the back and let the roof flap fall down. FYI - that's what Sidewipe is in the RID line. I can tell from the pictures.

The Grimlock, though, is just a tiny little engineering marvel. I often grab him and slowly watch all the little parts move into place for the transformation. It's really cool.

I looked at the one-stepper for RID Bee and I am kinda thinking about limiting myself to just the OSCs for RID, but with Combiner Wars coming, I just can't throw all my money at toys, so I am unsure.

Strong arm was my least favorite. I really wanted to like under bite but his transformation of squeezing his rear legs together works very poorly and is difficult to stay transformed. Sideswipe uses same flip transformation as AOE drift but I'm kind of over that because it was so inventive the first time around. Which leaves me with bumblebee. He's a good toy for a 1 step but tell me that his robot mode doesn't scream a Rodimus repaint!

Thanks Seibertron. And check out your one step helicopter drift when you have a chance. He seems to be better than all of those from the way you describe them.

The fun with the car mold from the Drift transformation is that you can transform them with a flick of the wrist. You can transform it by folding the legs back and letting the roof flap fall down but that's boring. Flick your wrist when you want to transform it and watch the magic happen before your eyes. That's how Hasbro demonstrated the Drift 1-Step at Toy Fair last year and it sold me. Simple and fun. It's a one handed transformation which is pretty awesome. I'd love to find a video of someone demonstrating this instead of using two hands to transform those molds.
