We can always rely on Chuck to give us the reviews for the newest toys and once again he delivers. Here is what he has for us this time: One Step Drift, Fracture and the highly anticipated Thunderhoof.

With each subsequent wave the RID One-Step changers keep getting better. Drift is a nice scaled down version of the Warrior Class mold while Thunderhoof is a great representation of the animated design. All three are highly recommended but if you only buy one Fracture is it due to how tightly the Motorcycle mode comes together.

Better start strong arming those other retailers sooner than later.


Smart, I didnt catch that! Now I am wondering why they call it a price drop and not just a sale.


Who knows? I don't have a KMart that's close, so I'm not familiar with their marketing.

I was in a hurry this morning to get where I was going, but went back to consider a purchase. I figured I best share that additonal info.

Personally, I really hope the upcoming warrior figure uses the fork FOR the antlers (like splitting it and angling it).

So do I. Hopefully it comes with a weapon too.

Yup, Megatronus, Quillfire and Thunderhoof (YES!). And Steeljaw was in wave 1. Takara has 2 other warrior class villains as redecos.

Cool, I'm not familiar with the first two. I'll have to hit Google up for that. Thanks.

I'm hoping for that crabby guy. You can probably tell I haven't been able to catch as much if the show as I would have liked to.

Don't want them even with the price drop. I guess Hasbro's strategy to grab little kids and neglect the adult collectors backfired on them.

You call the Masterpiece line and Combiner Wars neglect?

Personally I think one step changers shouldnt exist. Its budget wasted that they could design more deluxe class figures. Kids dont want that dumbed down crap, they want the big boy version. I wish Hasbro would take it back to the old school and just make one mold for every character that is ages 5 and up. Buy the 2 year old baby a teddy bear, not a transformer. Seriously...

Yeah, I agree. I think the one step changers would be fun for lil kid me. Watching them change back and forth with just a few simple movements. Trying to figure out the mechanics of it. Hell, I wish I could get my hands on some without dropping the cash.

I agree that the wee ones need simple-formers, but why must they be bricks?
The original BW Rattrap and Terrorsaur were hella fun, simple, and posable to boot. I'd buy every one-step they make if they were like that.

Don't be stingy. Just wait for a sale and go nut! That's what I did. Some one-steps are amazing designs like AOE Helicopter Drift. They are excellent desk toys and a lot of fun to transform. Despite what the Master Complainer and his ilk said, the 1steps are there since G1 and are here to stay. I'm a bit partial at having the same characetrs in Power Battler forms, but the 1 steps are pure genius and fun. When kids want to go :KREMZEEK: ZOOOOMMMM KRIKOUKRIK PEWPEWPEW :michaelbay: in 3 seconds for awesome action scenes, the 1 steps deliver.

Sigh... I just find pathetic SOME drama queens that talk as if the 1 steps are taking away their precious "serious" TFs. :roll:

I didn't need training wheels on my bike either as a kid...

I did, does that mean anything?

Also, those basic beast wars toys were awesome Shajaki! And it was cool to see that make a comeback with animated. The reason Beast Wars will always have done it better is because they were doing characters you could only get in that class. So kids and collectors alike got to experience them. While the difficulty level differed, the fact that all characters were unique or had unique looks between difficulty levels made it open for everyone to try any difficulty level.

I didnt needed any traning wheels either. I went straight from the tricycle to the BMX. I may have been 5 or 6 yo at most. I crashed 2 times. My knees were bloody, I hurt, and my gardian asked me if I wanted to give up. I said "bring it on" and succeeded on the 3rd try.

Still, I guess you DID had your TF "training wheels" like me. I bet you're a old school geewunner. Go bots and G1 Tfs were pretty easy and did transform in just a few seconds. I also remember having plenty of fun with those TFs that were spring-charged. They rolled than BAM! transformed in a jump! You had fun as a kid. So, must I understand you want to deny today's kids their fun?

My point is that one step changers, fast action battlers, shampoo bottle warriors, or whatever Hasbro chooses to call them are dumb.

We didn't have this junk in G1. Sure back then the figures were easier to transform. But back then we had faith in our little ones and didnt insult them with dumbed down versions of the same character big brother has. I am not suggesting that all figures be as complex as Bayverse figures, but I dont think a young kid should have problems figuring out how to transform Armada Starscreem, Generations Scoop or any of the RID Deluxe Figures. They dont need the dumb stuff. Just my opinion...

Considering how seldom you find those lines in stores, yes, neglect would be a perfect term.
