Fellow Seibertronians, yours truly has spotted the new wave of 1-step changers, featuring Springload, Quillfire, and the new Bumblebee mold at Walmart! This image only shows the Bee mold and the Quillfire figure, but Springload was present and was picked up by said member before this picture was taken. So head on out to your local Walmart's and begin to look as these guys are bound to show up en masse soon!

Still on the Robots in Disguise topic, our very own Scotty P found 3-Step Thunderhoof/Blizzard Strike Drift at US retail. They were found at Toysrus in Raleigh NC for $22.99 each.

You have obviously been duped by his clever disguise as a ball with a handle on it and are thus incapable of seeing that this is none other than the one and only master of Metallikato, the invincible BLUDGEON!...G1 Bludgeon that is! To a master of Metallikato, the seemingly impossible act of transforming from a Type-90 JSSDF tank into a small, roughly human-sized sphere with a conveniently placed carry-handle is simplicity itself!


:D

It was fetching a pretty penny last year for sure. Glad you are getting it, he is awesome and a great example of a well done retool.


I'm in UK but yeah I wasn't visiting TF websites much around that time so missed it too. Yep I bought it second hand for £8.99 with free delivery. Complete with sword, missile and instruction sheet. And despite MyHermes delivery firm's best efforts to hide it(they seemed to think I wasn't home then left me a card bizarrely dated 30th December and said it was left with my 'neighbour at 93' except I'm in 93, I eventually found the package at 97), he arrived today so just in time for christmas. :)

Here he is being my RotF Bludgeon's 'minicon' of sorts as they go up against Springer & Arcee in a sword fight.

Fellow Seibertronians, hot on the heels of Cobotron's slew of pictures of Transformers RID Battle Pack Optimus Prime, we have a video review of it courtesy of Baltmatrix.



So how do you feel about this new line of figures with this more comprehensive look at what they're all about? Let us know in the comments below.

Hey Guys,

Happy Holidays! Thanks for watching the Optimus review. For a comparison here my Battle Pack Sideswipe review as well! While neither figures are bad they are little more than scaled up Legion class figures with silly armor bits and a bakugan. Younger kids might like them but I worry that the kids will lose or swallow the energon bits. (as the father of a 19-month-old I worry about these things)

Oh an on the 26th I'll follow up with my 2016 Wave 1 RID Minicon review.




Again, wishing you all a wonderful Holiday,

Balt

I think they are far more than upscaled Legion since they have double the articulation. No offense to those legion class toys but that articulation is BAAAAAAAAAAAD

At Legion scale I don't expect a crazy amount of articulation given the designs. But at this scale some more articulation would be greatly appreciated.

More articulation than legion or more articulation than what they actually gave us?

Looks like you can pull off some pretty great poses still:

Hey! Nice blues ;)^

Megatronus is strangely satisfying, I think you'll dig him. Only reason I didn't get Fracture though is cause I recently pre-ordered the Adventure version.

Bumblebee is an odd duck though. He comes with a translucent smokey black sword more suitable for the Night Ops Bee which I recently acquired. I did some modding and swapping, now Backwards Day Bumblebee might be my favorite of the bunch!

I guess they gave Optimus Orange armour - as they were thinking many people will just throw the extra bits in a parts bin and the axe would be the correct colour - but assuming you'd actually want the armour to look nice - I think another darker colour would have been better - heck even all spark blue would have been better too.


I think my reaction to the armour is coloured negatively by the choice of the coloured they decided to cast them in - I don't think any work well at all - If they ever repaint them I hope they pick matching tones to the originals so they can be juggled with the armour from the 1st releases.

Dark Blue or red for Optimus and Red or magenta for Sideswipe for example.

I'm a little surprised that when they designed them they didn't think to make the armour also fit on the vehicles and the minicons in some ways too.
