We've got some huge news for you today, Seibertronians! User Mindmaster has alerted us to an article on the website Io9, Where they revealed a majority (of not all) of the toys coming out in the Robots In Disguise Spring 2017 wave! The big news here is most of the new figures are classic characters no one expected to be included in RID2015, so this is a surprise certainly coming out of left field for most.

Spanning all size classes, characters like Blurr, Bludgeon, Cyclonus and, most importantly, Soundwave will be joining the cast sometime in the future! The toys also have some interesting new gimmicks, such as Activator Combiner Soundwave, who comes with a Laserbeak who turns into a small weapon, with "Deploying Battle Cannons". This calls back to the similar Minicon Deployers that are currently included in this line. Take a look at all of the images of the new toys down below and tell us in the comments what you think of these new incarnations of classic Transformer Characters!

Someone in Hasbro REALLY likes Twinferno, huh? First being the only Monsterbot to get the Generations treatment and now this. I'm getting a John Warden Deluxe Vehicles vibe here :-?

While this all looks majorly badass, I'm not sure exactly how I feel about it. RiD 2015 used to mostly be it's own thing with the recent Starscream harkening back to the past so much being a big surprise, but what made it so great is that it was unique. Now it feels like the toyline's starting to overflow with G1 influence when before it was packed with originality and new characters. Don't get me wrong, I still prefer these G1 characters to what RiD has put out and I'm excited for most of these figures - especially that Soundwave holy shit - but... I dunno. It's starting to feel like RiD's uniqueness is starting to fade and mesh in with everything else.

The one article said Hasbro is making designs inspired by G1...that's not all that new, and Titans Return is a much better example of that...

When the Bludgeon mold was revealed at NYCC he was a Bot and had a different name. So we're getting two, or they changed their mind?

And I agree Kurona. Although these look fun, I wouldn't mind the line staying the course of originality it was on.

I was groaning at the article the whole way through. Acting as if this is the first time there's been full-on G1 influence... meanwhile, there is literally a direct remake of the G1 Soundwave toy in a Titans Return Leader box, original alt-mode (or at least a close approximation of it), cassette partners and all. :HEADHURTS:

Warrior Class
Starscream
Bludgeon
Blurr
Soundwave
Twinferno
Skywarp

Legion
Blurr
Cyclonus
Starscream

Of note is that the Warror Starscream is a regular retail release, and thus may have some changes from the TRU Clash version. As for Bludegon, I'm going to assume he's a redeco of Blastwave, as I don't see any of the others revealed earlier.

I kinda like how that Soundwave takes design cues from both the WFC/FOC and Prime designs. And depending on how well that Bludgeon looks in hand I might use him as my G1 Bludgeon.

The 3 we saw in new york arent there so I am assuming these all come after. That means that we will first get Blasstwave, White Drift and Stormshot. So far they have been releasing 3 new warriors per wave, so I dont know how this will all play out. So much for those who thought this line was dead is growing more and more and giving us more stuff. I love it. I still want a warrior hamerstrike but this is all good stuff. I dont know if I will get that skywarp or not but all the rest of these warriors are definite buys.

And I find it cool how taht Soundwave has the same body type as Prime Rumble and Frenzy. It will be a cool dynamic to have him stand in the middle of the two with them acting like his goons. About Soundwave, man, that guy's agent must have been working overtime.

...welp, I'm back from the comments section. *Hides in a cardboard box*

...so, the new toys look cool. Wonder how Soundwave and Cyclonus will factor into the show, if at all.

Soundwave will definitely be a big thing in the show; probably the new 'con leader. You don't just get a whole slew of toys like that, all original molds and don't appear.

Cyclonus too considering he's a new mold. I'd expect Skywarp and Bludgeon too but since they're easy redecoes of past figures, won't be surprised if they don't appear. Then again, Soundwave probably needs team fillers, and there don't appear to be many Decepticon toys not currently arrested and taken back to Cybertron...

HOLY SH*T

These have got to be some of the best-looking toys to come out of RID's toyline. Looks like Soundwave's getting a major upgrade if this means he's making yet another return to the series.

Also, Blurr, eh? Are we finally getting a Rescue Bots crossover?

But he's recycling the engineering of Starscream and Windblade. It could go either way, but yeah I think he will be on the show. Looking forward to the warrior toy.

Wow, this is some good stuff. I like what they've done with Soundwave, and Blurr and Twinferno look really cool.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF******************************************************** YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is awesome! Bludgeon looks amazing. Blurr!! Yes!!! Soundwave is like a mix between Prime, Animated, and WF/FOC!!! WTF Twinferno?!?! Awesome!!!

This whole thing is awesome. Means I can pass on Blastwave and get Stormjet and Drift from wave 1 2017 and wait on all these cons!!

Ooh exciting! The only one that is a must have is Bludgeon out of all things. Looks really nice and negates the need for the RotF Bludgeon. I think the only two I might pass on are Skywarp and Blurr. Nothing's really wrong with Blurr it's just the TR one is so good and Skywarp is well a repainted Starscream. I do hope that that Cyclonus design gets a warrior toy sooner or later.
