I found him yesterday, and I agree with the general sentiment. Car mode is REALLY nice (and the pale kanji makes it look like the car is intentionally bi-coloured rather than paint and plastic being off from one another) but his robot mode doesn't want to quite hold together. It's not as bad as say, Blitzwing; you can move his arms around a bit without his upper body coming apart, but if you try to get any dynamic poses you will be pegging him back together. It just seems as if the designer underestimated how deep the connector pegs would need to be due to the soft oily plastic used.

In short he's a quite reasonable figure to get at retail value, especially if you're trying to get all onscreen characters but don't go mad hunting him down.

Sideswipe can work with a little effort.

First, make sure the chest plate is securely fastened against his sternum.
Second, gently slide the shoulders into place and make sure the tiny pegs are actually sitting in the tiny holes. (This is the hardest part.)
Finally, push the hood piece up against the fenders/collar and it'll force the shoulders to lock in and he becomes poseable.

If you bump the hood loose, however, the whole thing comes apart. (Terrible design.) It also gives him tremendous backpack.

AB32 your optimism is always appreciated. :D
I am sad to hear he is kind of a turd. Probably wont stop me from getting him. I'm a sucker like that.
I will say, I picked up Legion Swipe the other day. He's real fun. If your into that kinda thing. He has really nice leg and feet articulation.(again, for a Legion.)

Yeah I discovered using the backpack works like you said. I find it interesting that thus far the toys of the non main cast have tended to be better. Drift? Phenomenal. Jazz? Perfect.

I think Bumblebee has a nice balance, but he's got some issues, sure.

Grimlock seems to be nice and solid, just wish he had a weapon of some kind.

Shellformery she may be, but I genuinely like transforming Strongarm back and forth. She poses well, too.

Steeljaw makes for a nice villain with that beast mode and poseable tail, but yeah, he's kind of weak in that wave.

Optimus? Don't own. Can't comment.

Drift? Much like Bumblebee, well balanced, but has a nice range of motion. Just wish his legs weren't hollow.

Jazz? SOLID. Fantastic figure!

Sideswipe? Visually appealing, if you transform him a certain way, he works. In anything else, he's kind of a pain. His transformation is too complex for a kids line, his vehicle mode looks kinda ugly, honestly and he can't hold his sword to save his life.

It's like he's an afterthought and they said "Meh, do it."

Sideswipe can hold the sword quite well, the trick is to not push it all the way in, yeah I know that sounds weird.

Huh...I see the notch on the handle now. The thumb rests right in it, yeah. Weird design choice. He's more for posing, than for playing. Jazz, on the other hand, does both.

The new class of Transformers: Robots in Disguise toys, Deployers, has been seen at NY Toy Fair - in video form too - but we now have official stock photography in addition to the one previously released of both Decepticon Fracture (with Airrazor) and Autobot Drift (with Jetstorm) thanks to the Peruvian Hasbro Transformers site! Check out the mirrored images below.

It would be really cool if Fracture's mini bot could ride Fracture in hover bike mode. :-?

so this is the new version of the FOC Data Disc dudes? Technically same universe family and all.

One thing I do like is that the accessory sprue is the shape of the faction symbols. That was a cool idea.

I'm liking those little guys. When they are pegged on the sprue, it looks as if there are coursing with energy during transformation.

I was also looking forward to him. Hopefully Hasbro or takara will correct this in later releases. I wont buy him till he is on deep discount simply to not be disappointed in my purchase. The transformation looks great though!

Still can't tell if these are Deluxe or Voyager class robot height toys? :???:

If Fracture is a Voyager class robot, Then i'll buy it. Like the design and colors. Hover bike is very original.

Don't like the Drift design or colors. regardless of size i'm not interested. Robot doesn't seem too articulated. Robot Sculpt and colors remind me of a Power Rangers Zord toy.

The minicons do look interesting in sculpt and gimmick but not very articulated.

Yeah, the minicons definitely look better than the actual deployers themselves. I hope I can get all the minicons individually and not have to buy the bigger two packs to complete the mystery figure you can make with all the clear plastic accessories.

Also, I dont think these are deluxes or voyagers, these are more akin to the megas of the beast war era (like Inferno and Polarclaw).

Also, stop bashing that kid, he's cute and not that creepy (it's the older kids that creep me out). Kudos to him landing this modelling gig and being paid more than any of us for an hour of his time (when he gets work, of course).

And lastly, while sideswipe may not be great, there is a whole bunch of paint and clear plastic usage, reminding me of the previous RID (2001) figures (in a good way). Someone said that Takara's Groove couldnt have been made by Hasbro due to using clear plastic in the deluxe class. Well, with Sideswipe here, I don't think that specific part of the argument holds water anymore.

The deployers look good but I'm disappointed that Drift and Fracture don't come with weapons for themselves.
