Hello everyone large and small, and welcome to another Seibertron.com pictorial review session! Today, we will be taking a close look at the 2 new Warrior class figures of the Robots in Disguise line: Blurr and Soundwave!

To begin, we will look at Blurr.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Robots in Disguise Warrior Soundwave and Blurr

This figure is supposed to represent the Rescue Bots version of Blurr as he becomes the first Rescue Bot character to cross over into the more advanced toylines. Now mind you he does not look exactly like the character people came to love in Rescue Bots, but then again, did Sideswipe and Bumblebee look exactly the same between shows?

Overall, this figure does look really cool! His colors are pleasing to the eyes and he does have a pretty well thought out color scheme that makes him look pretty sexy.

Below, you will find a pair of comparisons, one with the Titans Return Hot Rod and the other with Combiner Force Primestrong for size comparisons.

He stands about your standard height for a deluxe/warrior figure, and his proportions looks similar to Hot Rod's in that the arms feel a bit too long and the shoulders a bit too high. But overall he still looks good.

His blaster is fairly cool looking, though the translucent plastic used for it would have been better in an actual solid blue, at least to me.

Inspired by Seibertronian Mr.Black, he can also cast a great running pose!

His backpack kind of keeps to itself, though it basically is a big, smooth, mostly translucent backpack. But it stays out the wave and doesn't hinder articulation at all, so it's no biggie.

LIGHTPIPING!!!!

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Robots in Disguise Warrior Soundwave and Blurr

His Transformation is simple yet fun and intuitive. Despite the robot mode look, he does not share any sort of Transformation trick with Prime Wheeljack.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Robots in Disguise Warrior Soundwave and Blurr

The alt mode looks really good too. A sleek and sexy car that really looks like it can move fast. He looks really good next to Titans Return Hot Rod in this mode too. I wish something could have been put in the cockpit area since you can see right through it to his legs and the ground between his legs, but that's a minor quibble.

Now onto Soundwave:

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Robots in Disguise Warrior Soundwave and Blurr

This figure has been pretty hyped up, and I can see why. It is a pretty swell figure! The robot mode looks really cool, all beefy and brawny. He really uses his War for Cybertron design here, and it looks really good with the Prime headsculpt.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Robots in Disguise Warrior Soundwave and Blurr

Now, something I will point out is that he really looks like a Prime Breakdown. Just looking at him next to Breakdown, they looks very similar. They even share locations of where their parts end up! If this character could get a repaint, Breakdown would be a Prime suspect! (so sorry)

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Robots in Disguise Warrior Soundwave and Blurr

He also looks fun deploying his legion of minions! (sorry, puns are funs). On this note, I will say that his posability in the arms is a bit troublesome. The shoulders really limit his different poses, just as a warning. He also has mid-torso rotation instead of waist rotation, which actually works out pretty well!

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Robots in Disguise Warrior Soundwave and Blurr

MOAR LIGHT PIPING!!!!

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Robots in Disguise Warrior Soundwave and Blurr

Transformation is really interesting and very fun! It is definitely unique and one that is fun to do again and again.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Robots in Disguise Warrior Soundwave and Blurr

The alt mode looks pretty good too! Mind you the hands are fully visible, but it isn't really an issue. It looks big and mean and really does show his Highmoon Studios heritage here.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Robots in Disguise Warrior Soundwave and Blurr

Now mind you, the big appearance is sort of deceiving. The underside ends up fairly hollow, but that is hardly an issue because no one displays their transformers in alt mode upsidedown or on their side.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Robots in Disguise Warrior Soundwave and Blurr

Once again, you can really see a Breakdown appearance here too, and I would not doubt a retool of Soundwave as Breakdown down the road.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Robots in Disguise Warrior Soundwave and Blurr

Also of note, his gun is capable of adjusting its angle, so you can not only rotate the gun, but also point it up in the air!

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Robots in Disguise Warrior Soundwave and Blurr

And now the 2 figures together:

Transformers News: Pictorial Review of Robots in Disguise Warrior Soundwave and Blurr

Overall, these are 2 fairly good figures. Now mind you, these are not the Fracture's or the Thunderhoof's or the Bisk's of the line in that they are not completely mind-blowing, but they are both still pretty good. They are worth having for sure. So head on out to your stores and pick up one today!

These figures look like so much fun. The Seibertron gallery should be the way to advertise toys because now I want ones that I didn't think looked cool in the packaging.

Sadly, he is not the standard, he is the best one. I find the rest not as great. The others I like are Bludgeon and Sawtooth since they have both fun robot modes and weapons.

Damn, glad I trusted my intuition and grabbed him then. What about Dragonus? I could have sworn I saw you singing his praises.

They are all fun and I dont regret getting any, but I dont remember praising any of them either.

Oh, oh, D-Max! Have Blurr raise his translucent gun all the way up in the air for a "Power Up and Energize!" pose. :idea:

SCORE!!! :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay:

Now if he could just do that (carry over the gimmick from the RB show) in the RID show. Bonus points if he deliberately does it to try to annoy Sideswipe. :P

The Blurr that comes with Rescue Bots Optimus shares the Blue colour scheme I notice - if the RID line is still around a few more waves I'd love to see them make the next batch in purple though - just so people have the option.

Extra bonus points if the gun turns out to not be a gun but instead a Collision Foam Cannon.

This is RiD. Something like that is entirely with the realms of possibility

Probably old news by now, but I spotted Skywarp and battlemask Windblade at the TRU in the Village at Allen, Allen TX. Tempted by Windblade, but I was looking for something... a little bit bigger :lol:

See the Texas sightings thread for images

Well I finally got the 3rd Minicon Boxed set (yay) with Autobot Dragonus, Bashbreaker, Lord Doomitron and Lancelon.

Lancelon is OK a bit short perhaps and the colours don't really go with anything terribly well. But he looks OK enough.

Lord Doomitron is going to get partnered with Bludgeon for sure when I get him as the colours should go really well.

I'm considering buying another Bashbreaker (on a card) to get this one some more armour - he looks a little plain without it.

Autobot Dragonus is a great looking Turret - now I just have to find a suitable vehicle with a 5mm hole in the roof that doens't colour clash with him - he might look nice on Activator Combiner Strongarm or Sideswipe perhaps.

A lot of the things I'd like to use him on though it won't fit due to a lack of suitable 5mm centre port.

I might get him some armour too - if I can find another Dragonus - no easy task as I've only ever seen 1 and I bought it.

Even better the 2nd wave of Weaponizer Minicon on cards have shown up in the Entertainer again (after a momentary sighting late last year then they disappeared):

http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/threads/r ... k.1104120/

I hope I can get them as they look long term useful - especially Decepticon Dragonus & The swords.

The Robots in Disguise Combiner Force Crash Combiner Skyhammer set is being found across the continents. In North America, it has been found in an Ontario Walmart, in Canada, while in Europe, it has been found at Kaufhof in downtown Düsseldorf, Germany. This set features Skysledge & Stormhammer, which become Skyhammer, a new character in the Robots in Disguise cartoon, who we have yet to meet.

The Germany sighting is TFW2005's Nevermore and the Canada sighting is from Cybertron.ca's Downshift.

Nice to see something new of any kind reach the UK. It's been the most stale that I've known since the original generations line recently

I now have see if I can find the other missing minicon wave now.

Glacius
Scorch Strike Jetstorm
Ransack

---

I would be interested in any report on the differences in the big gift set of minicons if anyone ever got that as - I noticed some of them seem to have a bit more paint than the other released versions.


For example Bashbreaker has light grey paint on the sides of the hammer. and Tricerashot has extra paint on his face to give a couple of examples.

Because the show versions are in the 4-packs or the Battle Packs in the case of Windstrike and Sawtooth.
