Seibertronian DestronMirage22 has let us know that he has found some Robots in Disguise Minicon 4-packs at Burlington! This appears to be becoming a trend, seeing as how just earlier today we got word that G2 Bruticus had made its way to Burlington as well. This set of 4 minicons is the original boxed set, featuring Blizzard Strike Backtrack, Scorch Strike Beastbox, Blizzard Strike Swelter, and Scorch Strike Undertone, and was found at a $7.99 price point.

With this in mind, head on out to Burlington and see if you can't find yourselves some cheap Transformers, and remember to keep sending us your sightings!

Too bad I don't have one near me. I want undertone to put with RiD Ratchet. Also the spines on his sphere mode look neat.

Here's a thing....seeing as with at least some of these figs is basically two things connected together to form one bigger thing in Combiner Force....do you think that we'll ever get Overlord? now i know the obvious answer from you guys will be NO! coz we're getting a Titans Return one, but we have had a few characters that are in both franchises..Bumblebee, Optimus & Soundwave to name but a few(granted not the same Bee, Optimus & Soundwave....but at least by name)

Here's what I think: https://twitter.com/Scotty__P/status/825539410460549120

The weak T-Rex alt mode on it is exhibit B. Like that's the mode that got sacrificed for the other functions.

Would you mind taking a few other pics please? We could make a new post out of that. And I dont think any of us have seen the Trex mode yet, at least not from in hadn images. When you have a moment.

When I saw this, I immediately agreed. It could be like a Prime Abominus affair where the toys combine but they aren't mentioned to until much later, and considering how big Grimlock would be to be to be the entire bottom half of the combiner, this would make sense.

And yeah, we've only seen this thing in packaging. We have yet to see it out of the packaging, so pics are welcome!

According to the image we got of the Bee combiner, yes, he's the entire bottom half of the combiner.

And Bumblecron was Scotty's name for the combiner. we have no official name yet

Have weaponizers been found in US retail yet?
I also found some TR Soundwavea, but I'm pretty sure those were found in the US already.

Yes, all 6 were released in the US. I have Sideswipe and Grimlock and love both of them. Bee looked too plain and I didn't really want Prime due to his truck mode, and the Strongarm/white Sideswipe didn't appeal to me either. But they were still fantastic little sets

I'm on the fence with those, actually, but only because I like the add-on armor/weapons concept :lol: I'm especially eyeing Grimlock, Strongarm and both Sideswipes because of their elemental alignments, (Fire, water, wind & lightning), but Prime and Bumblebee... not so much :-?

Good little scouts - only lacking for a bit of paint really

I just threw out Bumblecron as the name because of Bumblecron, one of the ancient Transformers memes:

And I appreciate the picture requests but likely do not have the time this week. Actually, a good way to make me not do several pics of something is to ask, makes it feel like a chore :lol:

At least if Ultra Bee needs that 3-step Grimlock, it will give me an excuse to buy my first ever 3-step

I can tell you what it is, its die cast cars, thats what that company does. These arent from hasbro but instead from a licensed toy company that makes non transforming toys:

Those characters are non transforming figures.


Funnily enough....check this out

While we're on the subject of whether or not these RiD characters are supposed to be new characters or reimagined characters, can someone please explain to me what the deal with Kickback is? I'm pretty sure he died in the Beast Hunters comics, but now he's suddenly alive and well (and with a car mode, too).

Back on topic, that RiD Soundwave is gorgeous! I can't wait to get a hold of the guy. It blends my two favorite versions of Soundwave together rather well.

Also, any idea of a release date for Bludgeon? I ain't settling for Blastwave.

Best guess is that this is a totally different Kickback. Though it's also worth bearing in mind the 'aligned' continuity isn't very good at aligning.
