good lord that sideswipe looks bad. his torso is literally a flat panel screwed onto a frame. and not even screwed on right, his legs are misaligned.

That really does not look much like Rescue Bots Blurr's face/head.

It... kind of does. It's not the exact same but they follow the same patterns and motifs.

That forehead crest of his is definitely more from G1 Blurr without the antenna.

Yeah, it's the RB Blurr head but they changed it up a little to include some original and G1-drawn aspects. It still follows the same motifs and patterns as RB Blurr.

To me this:

looks as much like this:

looks like this:

Sure, they borrowed a few things from G1 Blurr like the color and that little thing on top of his head, but the overall shape is closer to RB Blurr.

Huh, so that's what RB Sideswipe looks like? Weird. Why is RiD so obsessed with the black chest window thing? It's a cool motif but it being on everyone is really confusing me.

The ironic thing is that Sideswipe doesn't have a window chest in either the RID 2015 cartoon or on any of his toys, including his Rescue Bots toy. The window chest he had in the Rescue Bots cartoon was all that cartoon's doing.

It's nice to see some rotation in a One-step you don't often get that.

It looks like the knees up are on a hinge system so the chest is the nose of the car and I like the elbows he has - it seems he spins at the knees.

But I really would prefer some more Decepticons - heck they could do a much better job with Thunderhoof - or at least repaint him a bit.

They never made a Megatronus One step so that would be worth doing as would Starscream.

I think that Shark one would work really well as a one-step too.

------

P.S.

This is now 5 One-step RID Bumblebee (2 Scissor,2 butterfly, and an unfold type).
4 Sideswipe (2 butterfly, one sort of Scissor and a rotate and chest pop type)
3 Optimus Prime (Flipchanger ish one, one which is mainly just moving his hands and standing it up, and an unfold like one) I would have expected one be made in white but they've not done that yet surprisingly.

2 Drift (One scissor and one butterfly)

------

So I'll say what I usually do - make more Decepticons and make Jazz.
Also why not make Rescue Bots onesteps in with the RID line ?

Rescue Bots are already One-Step more or less. ;)

So I don't know if this is noteworthy, or even remotely close to new any more, since I haven't kept very good track of this thread - but I found some Combiner Force Warriors (RiD Wave 9?) in a Target today. I know for certain these guys have been out for a while in the US but I don't know if they've been seen Down Under yet, so I figured I'd share it anyway.

Image
(Drift was there too but I didn't realise he was part of the wave at the time, so he doesn't get to be in the picture.)

Personally I didn't have much of a hankering for any of them except Screamer, whom I picked up and am rather pleased with. Not a big fan of the facial/headal region, but hey, it seems to be the line's aesthetic so I have no problem with it being the way it is. I might go back for Stormshot later though, he looks pretty delish as well.
Additionally (and I'm sure this isn't new), the Windblade/Scorponok wave (RiD Wave 7?) seems to have shown up at the same time and I pocketed little miss way-too-red as well, bringing my total RiD collection count up to a massive... eight.

Image
(Three Minicon Weaponizers not pictured because they've gone walkabout and I can't be bothered looking for them and all their pieces :P )

In the latest Hasbro Pulse newsletter, we have an in-depth chat with Hasbro Transformers toy designer Sean Carmine Isabella, talking about two characters part of the cast of animated series Transformers: Robots in Disguise: Starscream and Blurr. The two were added to the aesthetic of the show, while keeping some of their G1 elements (and some of Prime's, in the Decepticon's case) - check out below to find out more!

Epic Redesigns: Retrofitting Starscream & Blur into “Robots In Disguise”

Tapping into the rich history of Transformers lore, famed G1 Decepticon, Starscream, and heroic Autobot, Blur, are getting a Robots In Disguise overhaul. So what exactly went into detailing these classic characters? We went right to the source for the answers—Hasbro Senior Product Designer on Transformers, Sean Carmine Isabella.

About the Designer:

Designing many of his favorite childhood characters, Isabella builds new play experiences for the next generation of thinkers and explorers. Before he worked on heroic robots battling the forces of evil, Sean designed toys for brands such as Littlest Pet Shop, Easy Bake Oven, and FurReal Friends.

Image


So, why Starscream?

“Being an ‘80s kid, the idea of high flying fighter jets always sparked my imagination. No one encapsulated this for the Deceptions better than Starscream. Drawing jets and spaceships is something of a hobby for me so getting the opportunity to work on reimagining a classic character, (and a jet no less!) was a dream come true.”

Image



What elements of the G1 Starscream sculpt inspired this redesign?

“We wanted to hold onto certain iconic design traits to maintain his epic look—such as his chest exhaust design, graphic pattern on his wing, his overall color scheme, and his twin null ray blasters.”

Image


What was your motivation behind Blur’s build?

“Blur’s a fast talking, speed loving Autobot. We wanted his design to evoke the same sense of speed to be true to the core of the character.”

Image


Was there a specific G1 element you focused on keeping or updating?

“We looked at his classic Cybertronian mode that debuted in the 1986 film and reimagined how this vehicle mode would exist in a modern Earth setting.”

Image


The GI connections certainly don’t stop with these bots. Tune in to Transformers: Robots In Disguise to find out if some of your favorites are getting a modern makeover.

Hm. It's a shame they only focused on asking about the G1 elements because I'd be interested to know what other incarnations they considered.

Are you fans eager to find Robots in Disguise Soundwave in stores soon? Well, if you are in the UK then it might be sooner than you think. TFW2005 user hellhound has found this RiD Warrior wave featuring Soundwave & Blurr in Sainsbury, UK. The specific breakdown of the wave can be found here and also features a masked Windblade toy and Skywarp.

Soundwave looks so AWESOME. I haven't gotten one RiD toy so far, and this guy might break that.
