Robots In Disguise (2015) Deployers (wave 1) and Mini-Cons (wave 1) have been sighted at retail!

I know, you're thinking "Wait, haven't those been out for a while?" and you're right, they have. Heck, I even found them last week and posted it in the forums, but didn't news it because I thought they had surely been front paged by the time I had found them. That was my mistake, so I must apologize.

I'm not the only one to have found them, fellow Seibertronian Cobotron has them in hand as well, and unlike me he decided to share the images of his findings! (I really, really dropped the ball on this one, eh?)

:lol: AB032, I thought it was you who had reported on these here in the thread. It was your little mini review that made me decide to grab Fracture. For me the minis were a no brainer. Can't wait to pop these open tonight.

Fracture's fun, no doubt. Don't expect miracles, but he's fun. The Mini-Cons are where it's at though. Love that you can combine their armor into animal. Can't wait for wave 2 to show up so I can make the next one.

I don't want to, but I need to buy Deployer Drift simply because I want his Mini-Con. They're fun little buggers...

I'll have to keep an eye out for the Deployers now. I want Fracture if for no other reason then to have another Decepticon. I hear though that they aren't great articulation wise and are pretty limited in posability, anyone know if that is true?

Yeah, its totally true, you can see it in this review:



And if you buy Fracture, will you buy him again if he is eventually released in the Warrior Class line?

I'll be picking up Drift just for Jetstorm as well. I also wanna get Slipstream and Beastbox. But mostly just Drift's little buddies, so they can hang out with the warrior figures. I'll probably pick up a few random 'Cons too.

Funnily enough, I saw the Deployers and Mini-Cons today as well for the first time. The deployers are smaller than I thought, the Mini-Cons are larger. I still don't want them, but they look cool.

Just to piggy back on our weird post-convention summer coma that staff slipped into somehow - I updated the sightings product listings with the Deployers and the first couple waves of Mini-cons. Meant to do this ages ago, sorry about that folks. Going to work in the next few days/weeks on getting things up to date and future proof in there.

Now that the Robots in Disguise Minicons are finding their way all across North America, a review could help those who haven't made up their mind whether to pick them up or not.

We already had a very very early review for the Wave 2 (!!) Minicons but Madeus Prime brought this review of Wave 1 to our attention. This first wave contains Transformers Robots in Disguise Minicons Dragonus, Slipstream, Divebomb and Sawback and a bonus Energon Lion figure can be made from the clear accessory pieces.

Enjoy the review from Peaugh below and let us know if you feel like picking them up. They are only 4.99$ US a pop!

I think the Wal-Mart in my area completely bypassed Wave 1 and got in Wave 2 first. When I was there on Monday, I remember seeing the Beastbox, Ratbat, Sandsting, and Velocirazor assortment on a "blank label" peg. I was going to get one of each, but as I said, "blank label" peg showing no price and the price scanner right there on the same aisle was broken. Now that I know they're only $5 a pop, I'll be picking them up tomorrow morning when I do some grocery shopping. If others were hesitant about buying them like I was without knowing their price, the four should still be there (fingers crossed).

my walmart has RID2015 stuff but nothing for Combiner Wars. Just an empty space.

That's strange that both waves are out, and with wacky distro no less. :-?

WJ88 asked in the haul thread, if these guys are worth the price of admission. IMO, YES! But that depends on what you're looking for. Will collects transformations, Meaning he loves the challenge of a new and different puzzle. These are not that.
But, if you like cool little robot action figures, wit totally sweet translucent armor and weapons like I do, then this is your bag. They are great little characters with neat designs, and a decent little gimmick. Personally I think they are really fun and worth 5 bucks a pop. (they should be $2.99, but this isn't 2003 anymore, and we all have to face that inflation has inflated.) :lol: :(

...and for an added bonus for all those (including myself) who are bummed that the Legion guys don't come with weapons...

Fracture is a harder pill to swallow. While he is the crux of the overall gimmick, as a Transformer he comes up short. All of his articulation is pretty much for transformation aside from his shoulders. He is really just a glorified shooty stick. BANG BANG!
He does have a few redeeming qualities. He is a nicely sculpted figure with decent paint apps, and the gimmick is fun and works well. Also his alt mood is really cool because...

:lol: I couldn't resist.

Yeah. I think fracture looks great but for me, the value isn't there. I really hope they start releasing deceptions for warrior class. I'll pick them up. I like getting the new characters.

Thanks for those last two pics Cobs. Those makes me want to pick up Fracture now. If you haven't been able to tell, I love some TF riding TF action.

Yeah, I'll get him again. This line is the first time I've bought multiple lines of the same show. I've got the Warrior line, One Step, and the Legion figures. I don't know what it is but I'm digging the designs. Still not a 100% sold on the show though which is weird.

For me, with the toys, it's the alt modes. There are just some excellent vehicle designs being churned out right now. I'm also not sold on the show, but 1) this isn't the right thread and 2) my feelings on that are in the podcast going up today sometime soon anyhow :)

I think the show and designs are great. It deserves a 2nd season

We've seen some review of the Transformers: Robots in Disguise Minicon assortment recently, but thanks to iSpotTV.com, we also get a new official commercial for the first two Deployers in the line: Drift and Fracture, with Jetstorm and Airazor respectively. Check out below, in the embedded video, the fancied-up demonstration of the automorph and launcher gimmicks!

Yep, still in stock this morning. But now they're on a Flip N Change peg showing $9.99 or something like that, so probably won't sell out any time soon. Scanner on the aisle still showing ERROR, so I unplugged it to see if it would reboot. It did reboot, but still came up ERROR when all was said and done. Regardless, these four from Wave 2 were $4.93 each.

surprisingly, my wal-mart got these little guys but I didn't really see anything I wanted. I wish they were more like Arms Micron and became weapons (guns and swords and such). I'd be more into them. They cool for they are though.

meanwhile, store shelves are dreadfully bare. They had a single Steeljaw and some AOE one steps.

Oh, but they did have 3 Armada Megatrons and one g1 Megs. That was pretty cool....and about a few months late for me :)
