Having overcome that milestone 4000 gallery mark, Seibertron.com is now on its way up towards that 5000 gallery trophy, and to help bring us up to speed we are proud to show off our latest gallery: Robots In Disguise Legion Class Ratchet and Blizzard Strike Optimus Prime! These tiny little titans that everyone knows and loves thanks to the Season 2 finale as well as Transformer: Prime both get the legends class treatment, with Optimus being the typical blue deco we all know and love, and Ratchet is a retool of Strongarm, as his warrior toy shall be too. You can reference the toys with their previous versions, with Strongarm being HERE and Prime's warrior toy being HERE

We had to moderate all the comments to dial back the excitement.

As we saw in yesterday's gallery, Robots in Disguise is keeping the Legion Class alive and strong with its very varied assortment of Autobots and Decepticons. This class even includes characters we cannot get in any other class such as Clampdown, whose gallery is now up for you to see. Accompanying this crustacean Decepticon is mob boss Thunderhoof, who surprisingly sports as many paint applications as his warrior class counterpart. To keep these Decepticons in check, this 6th wave of Legion Class figures also has Windblade and Drift. It's interesting they came together in the same wave since they are both part of Optimus' stealth team on the show.

These are, refreshingly, all new molds. Enjoy the new galleries for the Wave 6 Legion Class assortment and let us know what you think of these toys!

Some of those legion class figures are great: Fixit and Clampdown. Some don't look so hot. I keep seeing legion Windblade at the store and I keep on walking by. For those that have the legion figure; how is it?

Clampdown really dissapointed me. I am not fond of how they handled his pincers. Neat transformation though.

I expect a bit more. Groundbuster is far mroe articulated than all the others and Megatronus has a rotating turret and a removeable cannon that can be reattached. I dont think we should be too complacent.

Her face in robot mode is not so hot. I keep all my RiD legions in vehicle mode b/c I think they all look so much better that way.

Yeah, thats true. Except for Megatronus though, I feel he works better in robot mode. And man that legion prime looks really good in truck mode. Of all the versions of that alt mode released by hasbro, its the Legion Class which I feel makes it works best for some reason. Everything tabs perfectly and I love how the slant of the foot is aligned with the slant in the hands:

Legion Prime is pretty nice, so is Steeljaw actually.

I'd say that middle child Jan Prime is probably the best RID prime mold though (not counting the fancy giant ones).

So, anyway... is that Windblade worth $6?

There's a lot of room for improvement for Clampdown, but I rather like him.

There really aren't any other Transformers that can do the car-with-a-face look, are there?


Drift is so orange, I don't think the pictures really capture it that well.

I dunno how Windblade manages to be from the same line as Fixit. I mean, I do because WB has to also be a flat jet and Fixit's free to sacrifice his alt mode for anything and everything, but still the difference between the two is startling.

And I'm disappointed how Thunderhoof went with two sets of antlers instead of trying for a happy medium.

I picked up both Windblade and Clampdown. I really enjoyed Clampdown's figure, but regretted buying Windblade the moment I opened her packaging. The paint apps on the face looks clownish and the figure just seems not well designed at all. Iron Factory's Windsaber is a much better figure, hands down.

That was the 2001 Robots in Disguise series. This is the 2015 Robots in Disguise series. The name "Robots in Disguise" keeps getting tossed around to refer to multiple different things. Just a few years ago there were an IDW comic series that bore the name of "Transformers: Robots in Disguise" as well, which has since dropped its subtitle to currently be known simply as just "Transformers" due to the 2015 series coming about and Hasbro not wanting to cause confusion between the unrelated IDW comic and the 2015 series. And it was also previously the subtitle for the second Transformers Prime toyline, with the first being "Transformers Prime: First Edition" and the third being "Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters", long with a few other supplementary lines.
