Honestly? I LOVE Soundwave. I'm sure part of it is my lasting affinity for WfC/FoC-style designs, but I adore basically every single thing about this guy (aside from the neck-plate...).

Its an awesome toy, and Hasbro did a great job with him. There is nthing missing to the deco, for me, nice helping of paint all around and a nice robot mode that is both new and inspired by what came before. The only reason he wouldnt be a top 5 soundwave to me is beccause of how the arms end up in alt mode. There is nothing there to hide them, it looks really lazy and bad.
And its really too bad such a great toy would also have this big a flaw. But dems da breaks!

Maybe this new body is what will come about after Soundwave's Mini-Con minions finish gathering up all three Decepticon Hunters for him. Recall that three Decepticon Hunters brought together result in body upgrades that Takara's toys called "Supreme Modes". Maybe we'll see Soundwave somehow figure out how to make his new body a permanent upgrade instead of the temporary ones that Bee, Swipe, and Strongarm had in "Battlegrounds", and which Steeljaw and Bee again had in "Decepticon Island" (or like what Starscream and Optimus had in "Worthy").


That'd be a nice way to work it into the plotline, unlike Starscream's design change. Here's hoping. I'm still very satisfied with the Starscream weaponizer arc, mind you. Steve Blum is God. :P

Ah yes, you're right, that's the only detractor of the toy for me, but somehow I can kinda get past it. Most of my figures are in robot mode most of the time anyway. Even still, would it have cost them so much money to put a hinge on the hands so they fold in?

I am glad that they at least acknowledged Starscream's new look rather than have us just pretend that his new look was just his Prime look run through an aesthetic filter like with Bumblebee's and Optimus's RID looks (and I'm especially glad that they were able to tie in back in with his WFC/FOC look, as a nice subtle nod to that era of the timeline). 8-)

But yeah, since we saw Soundwave in his Prime design in this show before, his new look is gonna need some sort of concrete onscreen explanation.

I still like to think that Bee got an upgrade to explain his look and that Prime's look is an afterlife remodel or something.

Starscream's new look is great and much nicer then the skinny frail and dull colored Prime look I just don't understand why Starscream would "upgrade" from a clearly Superior armor design to his weak inferior Prime armor unless he was forced to.

The Transformers: Robots in Disguise line has had some sightings across the US, but one toy had eluded American stores until now - thanks to Seibertronian Bounti76, Crash Combiner Skyhammer is now proven to be out there; this particular one (See image below) is from Walmart in Centerville, Utah.

If you come across any new or old toy sightings, make sure to use our fully up to date Sightings Tool, and join the regional conversations in the Energon Pub - happy hunting!

I saw this the other day and thought, "I'll use the integrated search to see if it was seen yet." "Ok, spotted in NA, guess someone beat me to it." I love how I didn't read it was found in Canada. :HEADHURTS:

Fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 has once more found an early set of an upcoming toy, this time featuring the Robots in Disguise Combiner Force Ultra Bee - the Autobot Combiner of almost the entire Team Bee: Grimlock, Strongarm, Bumblebee, and Sideswipe! Check it out below.

Many collectors aren't going to be into this due to the simplified nature of the figure. I can't tell you that's wrong, but what I can tell you is that Ultra Bee is a solid combiner, that has a unique look that makes it stand out. Yes, the individual figures are simple, but the ritual of transforming them into their limb modes is fun while the figure comes together with a satisfying click at every point.

Quite the clever combiner. I was afraid the entire thing would be extremely hollow and cheap. This might become a buy solely for the purpose of standing next to rid Galvatronus. Also, isn't this technically a 7 bot combiner, since jetstorm and slipstream because the "core" of the sword :-?

How did they go backwards from Power Core Combiners? At least each core figure was a fully functioning Transformer. Not to mention that the combined modes actually had some decent articulation. They could also be upgraded with Minicons as well.

If they had just upgraded the PCC limbs into what they have here (or rather Menasor and Galvatronus) but kept the base figure style from PCC, these would've been awesome instead of just somewhat cool.

Minicon upgradable, articulated combined modes made from a complete base Transfromer with simple robot mode limbs that don't autotransform into horribly mismatched spindly messes.

I love combiners so I'll pick these up but they're not a priority. At least for me though, Power Core Combiners are much better overall. Especially when you mirror the drones to make the limbs work better as some limbs (legs especially) don't mix with well others.

Ultra Bee looks really cool, and there are some really clever things happening with Grimlock and Bee. I really do like it, and I can't wait to get it myself!

Pass on that one, but "Menasor" looks promising!

Agreed. I don't collect RiD but I may pick up Menasor.

Just watched the review; that's quite the clever transformation on Bee - comes out really clean and it looks fun to do. If only it was a little more articulated I might have wanted it...

We had in box images for Transformers Robots in Disguise Activator Optimus Prime & Hi-Test, which was our first look at the figure and the first time we even knew it was coming. Thanks to Scotty P, we now have official images to get a better look at this two pack and how it looks in both modes. This image was found on a hidden Amazon listing.

Enjoy!

I hope somewhere gets the RID (Hotwheels like) cars of the newer kind as the Grimlock-mobile is fun and i'd like to get one (since they use that design across their product line) - I may even get that bigger remote control one just for the car mode too - as it's daft.

Found on the cross-sell section of Combiner Force Menasor's box by fellow Seibertron user chuckdawg1999, we bring to you the first image of the Crash Combiner Shocknado toy! First found on the Robots in Disguise app a few months ago, this is the first time we're seeing the character in toy form and it is currently not known who they're combined from, but feel free to speculate on the boards after taking a look at the picture below!

Shocknado is a redeco/retool of Skyhammer it looks like. I'm expecting the individual names to be "Shockblast" and "Tornado", or something among those lines.
