Madeus Prime has pointed us in the direction of another review, this time for the upcoming wave 2 Combiner Force Crash Combiner Skyhammer! Skyhammer is the fusion of Skysledge and Stormhammer in typical Crash Combiner fashion, and appears to be a pretty good figure with solid colors and a good looking combined mode. The figures themselves will be available soon at retail so keep your eyes peeled for this latest Crash Combiner set!

Right, it was Rescue Bots that was gonna be cancelled, not RiD :BANG_HEAD:


As far as I am aware it's both of them set to end in 2016/2017.

That said they did say something about doing a feature length RID offering - but I have a suspicion that was actually referring to Combiner Force before they hacked it up into little bits.

The Rescue Bots toyline is still going to continue, at least.

Something I just noticed, the Crash Combiner line features two vehicles being "crashed" together to make something. I'm surprised there haven't been complaints about teaching children crashing is cool.

Crashing vehicle toys have been a thing for long time now. The Incredible Crash Dummies, for instance, is a line centered around the gimmick of car crashing.

There no such complaints with the Crash Test Dummies toy lines AFAIK.

Skyhamner doesnt crash together, one just docks into the other's backside.

So do Sideswipe and Bumblebee, resulting in a lot fanfic writers screaming for joy ;;)

*ahem* :oops:

Anyway, I did some looking and that "mini-series" for the Mini-Con Weaponizers still counts as season 2. Season 3 is a full one as announced back in October.

Just to add confusion there seems to be no-info I can find that says the 2017 season is longer than 6 episodes as well.

But the 2 seasons and the miniseries seem to meet the numeric description of the previous pre-release length of 46 eps for the show.

So what we have in 2017 is in addition to that - however long it is. might be nice if someone would actually tell someone one something about their plans for the show or how many episodes there is or even the titles - they have already changed their mind about 2017 being season 4 and now are saying it's season 3 and the 2016 winter run is just a "Mini-series".

It's annoying me a bit as the new eps are supposed to market the new toys - but they are not doing a lot of that.

Anyone wanna make some bets on how long season (they say) 3 (I say 4) is gonna be ?

I'm going with 4 to 6 eps. it might be longer if they tack the 2 muted TV movie concepts together which if they do I'll say 10 episodes.

I'd say it's a bit too early to make guesses at whether the next RiD episodes will be the normal season format or another mini-series/cut-up movie like the Starscream arc. The latter almost seems like it's setting a new standard, though at the same time it's certainly a possibility that it was that way because they had to rush out an advertisement for the new toys that wasn't originally on their schedule (or was differently placed on their schedule). Not a very conclusive answer but from what little we have to go on, all I have to say is "wait and see".

... also, this conversation would probably better be suited to the thread actually dedicated to the animated series rather than the thread for it's toyline :-P

There was. The line didn't get pulled but parents weren't buying the toys for their kids. Al Rocker the weather man for the American morning show Today, publicly stated he didn't like the toys.

Its not the only line which encouraged crashing.

And fuck Al Rocker, he felt no pity for Harambe, he should stick to reporting the weather.

Plus, transforming and crashing has been used as a concept before this.
(go to the 1:50 mark)


Moving on, what's with the obsession here about RID being cancelled or not? How does it matter? It got a third season which is where all mainline TF shows have gotten more or less. It will one day end and another one will take its place to keep the brand alive among that demographic.

OMFG! that thing looks terrible! individual modes are just a 1 or 2 step brick!(i'm telling you now.....if Menasor's limbs are that bad....then i'll be giving it a huge miss)

the combined mode is pretty....meh! a kinda Optimus/Starsaber crossbreed.

Sure, the guy is sarcastic in his SkyHammer review. But I guess he haven't tried PrimeStrong nor BumbeSwipe yet. He's yet to see way worse and way sadder.

Because honestly, I think it work very well for SkyHammer and I'll buy it when I see it on the shelves.

I agree. I think this is the best looking of the crash combiners, and it does look really good and as I have Primestrong, the gimmick is actually really fun

Maybe I'm more excepting of these Crash Combiners because I grew up playing with bricks, but they are fun for what they are. The gimmick is so totally G1ish. I completely forgot I was going to hold out for Sky Guy there, but taken by the moment I grabbed Primestrong when I first saw them.
I agree that the gimmick is fun, but I do not agree that they are worth the price paid.
But that could be said for a lot of toys these days. >:oP

Thanks to Seibertronian rodimusconvoy13 we have a new sighting for the Combiner Force toyline for you guys to check out. The new figures in question are 3-steps Grimlock and Thunderhoof in new Combiner Force packaging, which as a result includes some sort of action gimmick for each. Thunderhoof appears to be a repaint of his original 3-step version but with darker colors and some sort of gimmick involving a 'hyper hook' while Grimlock appears to be a whole new mold with a 'hyper swoop' gimmick (Dino-pun intended?). These figures were found in a Meijer in Ann Arbor, MI, so head on out and start hunting these new 3-steps!
