Continuing on with the Seibertron galleries of the reveals from New York Comic Con, we bring to you the latest gallery: Robots in Disguise Combiner Force! Combiner Force revolves around Energon-styled 2-bot combiners that include previously seen characters such as Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, but also includes some new characters. Also included in Combiner Force are duos where a smaller minicon like figure unlocks the alternate mode of the larger bot, much like Stealth Force but with an extra character. Also thrown in are some new Warriors that include Stormshot, Blastwave, and an IDW colored Drift. You can check out a preview of the gallery below, and you can find the whole gallery HERE.

So Energon Power Link guys had individual bot modes. Do these guys? Or are they totally Doucons?

And if that's not Bludgeon, I'm a unkey's muncle! :lol: :-P

Individual bot modes. You can see it in the back of the optimus/strongarm box

Where is that picture? I just perused the gallery and didn't see it.

Edit: Nevermind. Found it. COOL!!! ;)^

I'm having similar thoughts about Drift and Ratchet. Wonder if it will be possible to change Drift's head though.

If the Hasbros were going to release a G1 colored Drift why did they not use the alternate head that was used by Takara?

Will this be another Combiner Wars Afterburner situation? (For the unknowing when the figure was first shown he had the Groove head instead of the proper Afterburner head the figure actually had)

I'm not sure. I'd need to look at my Drift but off the top of my head, I'd say it's not easy.

But even so, having Ratchet and Drift from the same toyline and in the same style will be really cool.

The other video round-up from the Hasbro preview night at New York Comic Con 2016 focuses on the Transformers: Robots in Disguise - and the Duocon-like Combiner Force sub-line as revealed here and here - featuring the likes of Drift, Stormshot, Bludgeon, Blastwave and the regulars Optimus Prime, Sideswipe, Strongarm and Bumblebee. Check it out embedded below!

I like the look of that Duocon

Bludgeon is just a retool of Megatronus

& Stealth Force Bee, Sideswipe & Strongarm......why? why use this gimmick again that was already used before with the Bayformer toyline(& i don't think that it was well received back then either).

Honestly not a fan of a single one of these (that's fine if you do - not saying they're bad, just not something I'm into) but I'm not complaining, because I do want almost everything from Titans Return. This is just a sigh of relief for my bank account for now.

Agreed there. At least the combined robot mode is pretty cool


That would be the one I get out of all of the combiner force guys, he looks really good. Reminds me of Star Sabre.


In the video when the jet legs are combined with the prime torso I got an Armada Jet Prime vibe.

Wondering if there's a boj to combine all 6 ala Landcross.....

You may have already heard that Clampdown is being classified as a Legion, while Springload is a One-Step. That being said, I'm curious to know if these guys will eventually show up at this year's NYCC in their Warrior forms? Will we finally get to see the Con's that we've finally been dying for since 2015 in all Legion, One-Step, and Warrior classes altogether? I'm currently referring to the Cons in Season 1 and 2. What will Hasbro tell us about Seasons 3 and 4? :BOT: :CON:

It's very likely we won't be seeing warrior molds of either of these guys. Sorry psj, it's based on popularity with kids and Autobots always win in that arena, or at least the executives and designers think so.

I gotta say, I'm really loving Stormshot. I don't know why, but I really want him. :APPLAUSE:

And I'm psyched about the eventual Bludgeon figure from Blastwave!

After the several photos sent to us directly from the Hasbro area at New York Comic Con 2016 for the upcoming Robots in Disguise line and its new Combiner Force direction, we have the official images from Hasbro themselves, featuring the likes of Bumblebee, Sideswipe and Strongarm, with newcomer Activators Stuntwing, Great Byte and Trickout. Check out the renders below, showing off the combined modes as well as the indivual ones!

UPDATED with images for the second version of Bumblebee and Strongarm, Optimus Prime, plus new character Skysledge, Stormhammer and a sample of combinations!

I can't believe Ironhide is a mini-con

They totally combined Optimus with Strongarm just so they could put Strongarm's forehead crest on Optimus's helmet just so they could do a Star Convoy homage, didn't they. /:)

Hasbro's been all over that guy recently. It's not a bad thing, but it is mighty confusing.
