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!

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.

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.
