Continuing our Robots in Disguise galleries, we now present some of the most anticipated figures of the entire line: Warrior Class Megatronus and Fracture. While both had two toys from other classes previously out (which you can see in the images below), all fans were waiting for these more traditional releases. These two start off the year almost as a statement that Hasbro is aware of the lack of Decepticons in the line and aims to rectify that. These two figures are a good example to show that there are still toys which can interest collectors in a line made predominantly for younger fans. Let us know what you think of these and if you have had a chance to pick them up yet, or if you now plan to!

I have both, and if Megatron is a must get (which I am not denying) than Fracture is a "must rush out of my house and drive to every single store until you find it!"

I was hoping to get Fracture with a $50+ order on HTS for the free shipping, but with Vortex not showing up and with that me getting the limbs elsewhere, I may have to wait until hopefully onslaught shows up and he, Crosscut, Huffer, Pipes and Fracture can go together :BOT:

Today's update in the ever-growing Seibertron.com galleries brings us back to Transformers: Robots in Disguise and the new incarnation of the Minicons - entirely different from those of old, and using both old and new names! In this particular gallery feature, we see the first wave of Mini-Cons Slipstream, Divebomb, Sawback, & Dragonus, two Autobots and two Decepticons, intended to be used with Deployer figures Drift and Fracture.

Slipstream and Divebomb are directly from the show, in their vaguely humanoid robot forms, while wolf-like Sawback and unsurprisingly dragon-esque Dragonus are expansions to the Deployer figures. In addition, each Mini-Con pack comes with coloured clear plastic armour pieces, applicable to a variety of figures outside of the one the come with, and can combine with other pieces for an entirely new teeny tiny robo-creature. Check it all out by clicking on any of the images below!

Good ole Cary is in love with these guys ain't he?

I'm undecided about them even after spending last week photographing all of them except for the ones that come in the Battle Packs. One improvement would have been to have had Mini-Con ports for the sake of legacy, some needed more paint apps, some just needed some consistency (i.e. Sawback can't stand in his disc alt mode when he has the accessories attached, whereas the rest look like spaceships or other types of armored assault vehicles), and some just needed their factions flipped (i.e. Beastbox who had no business being an Autobot, especially with Ratbat in the same wave). The "ball" shaped ones were oddly more appealing to me, moreso than the others, and I'm assuming that's because they remind me of the Microchange Meteor guys who became the Beast Wars Eggs and were also later used in the KISS Players line.

I cannot say anything yet as I do not own any of the minicons, but they don't look bad, and the armor is a neat touch. And they appear to work for what they were aimed at. I would however, prefer minicons like those triple changers we got during Thrilling 30 though :BOT:

DMax, you rang? And yes, I do love these little guys. I think they are fun and "cheap" pick ups. I started with just trying to get the show versions and it quickly escalated.

I'm not a purist for the most part and I'm starting to match up some of the odd ones with other figures as lil tag along toadies. For example: the Scorch Strike Beastbox is chilling with Gen Wreck Gar, they match up quite nicely. Sandsting is with a bunch of random insecticons.

I also find the rolly polly ones to be the most fun. Backtrack has all of my love right now :x his energon weapons really make the figure.

I did ring, knew you'd come. The little ball guys do look like lots of fun, mainly since they can move themselves, even if articulation is lacking. They're adorable! :BOT:

A Kmart near my home is closing, so all their toys were 20% off. I got for my son 2 Decepticon mini-cons he did not already have -Dragonus(the last of the first wave) and Sandsting from the newer assortment. -I had no idea about this:

My son was totally excited (especially now that Dad's advice about "keeping all the little parts where you can find them" has paid off) ;)

My only question is---this appears to be an intentional design, not a fan build. How would one come to know this existed if it were not in any instructions anywhere? I would think, somewhat like the Marvel "build-a-figure" action figures, this would have added incentive to collect them all. It was just chance (well really my sons desire to have them all), that we got them.

The only official venue I remember hearing about the armor piece lion and shark was from some previous con or toy show.

I've built both the lion and shark; no way it's by mistake. Seems like a waste of a "gotta catch 'em all" marketing strategy on Hasbro's part.

It would have been pretty cool if they could have employed a more generic/universal connector system to encourage more creative play.

As it stands I Have the two energon beasties built, some of the armor/weapons pegged in and the rest in a tin.

"Shark"? -Is this a build from the newer Minicons, or is this also something that can be built with the first wave?

Wave 1 and 2. I wanna say wave 1 builds the lion and wave 2 builds the shark.

Thanks all. Well as I said earlier, my son got Sandsting at Kmart. Too bad they wont be getting any more stock. I've seen the others at local Target stores (Beastbox, Ratbat, & Velocirazor). I guess I know what he'll want to spend his allowance on for the next few weeks heh...

These exra figures are really cool and bring a whole new layer to the idea of Transformers toys (the build a figure aspect) and I find it extremely well done. I love how everything fits perfectly together.

And yes, this was fully intentional and planed out (and well executed). While this was not in the instructions, it was stated in the Hasbro Panels at conventions. The people who got these early figured out these configurations based on the official announcements and the message has spread across the itnernet. I still find it sad that many kids out there would loveto know of this but since they dont know where to look or dont go onlie are not aware of this possibility.

I have been a fan since the very beginning, but have been out of the toy collecting aspect for a full decade. So I pass this torch to my son, who has basically collected random figures from various different lines up until now. I think he's found his niche with the RiD15 mini cons and Deployers (He has Drift & Fracture, but I wont be getting him any repaints, cause you know, Dad is mean like that) ;) . But I give total credit to all you fine folks on this website for revealing the Lion & Shark Builds. As you say, my son would have had no way of knowing otherwise.

They did need to advertise the energon guys better though. They are awesome, but you don't really know they exist, much like weapons storage, without looking for it :BOT:
