Strongarm... you just got an incredible scout toy; why did you have to... no, Strongarm... babe... that's not a good look.



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.

I am not sold on stormshot though. While Starscream had a nice levelof complexity to his transformation, this guy seems very basic, reminding me almost of a combiner wars jet.

Robot mode looks good, I wont deny it.

And to be frank, jet mode looks pretty good. I like the reference to real life jets.

I just dont like how unoriginal that transformation is and that plays a big factor for me.

Combiner Force? Just say Powerlink. :roll:

ARG! So frustrated by the fact that I have absolutely no need or desire for those big clunky toys, but their minicons are truly amazing! :BANG_HEAD:

I think those Combiner Force would be more interesting if they made a few more of them with the likes of Drift, Jazz, Ratchet & maybe Windblade in the line.

But I expect what you see is all there is going to be - and they will vanish like the Minicon compatible scout sized ones.

Oh and the seem to have renamed One-steps I notice.
But regardless what they call them did we really need 3 Bumblebee & 3 Optimus One Step Moulds ?

I like all the new Autobot Jets - if they'd not got so greedy and actually just made Bludgeon I'd have been interested - but the chances of RID being around long enough to actually release a Bludgeon toy seems slim - perhaps Takara might do it though. - And would it have offended some Toy god of something to have at least pre-paint it as Banzai-tron instead of a very inappropriate Autobot.

Combiner Force is very eeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. At least the warriors are good, can't wait for their renders!

The combiner force stuff seems to go along with the one steps and 3 steps as being more for small kids. I like how they crash into eachother for them to become a big bot.

I wonder if they copied the idea of a Chinese car toy they sell on Sirtoys.com where you have a couple of cars that collide and turn into a snake or some-such.

That only sounds vaguely similar and even then i doubt they copied it since they Hasbro did something similar in Energon and putting two things to turn into a bigger thing is not an original concept.

Also Bot Shots had a collision based transformation.

Those new minicons remind me of botshots actually.

It wasn't an original concept in Energon either, as it's the main basis for Victory's MultiForce
