Seibertronian RAR has provided us with more reviews today, this time in the form of a pair of repaints along with a new legion class figure: Blurr! Warrior Alpine Strike Drift is a repaint of the warrior class figure in an homage to the IDW character of the same name. Skywarp is a repaint of the Warrior Starscream mold, looking very nice in his black and purple. And rounding out the crew is legion class Blurr, an all new mold and a potential piece of a Robots in Disguise/Rescue Bots toy crossover.

You can check out the reviews below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

I just realised I don't know if Bisk is a 2017 Legion wave 1 or Legion wave 2 repack since he was skipped in the UK in the previous packaging style I hope he will get released in the new packaging either in wave 1 or 2 of Combiner Force Legions.

Maybe by the time he comes out I can actually find a Legion Ratchet that has two legs painted the same and not one thickly painted and one thinly painted - I've not seen such a common paint error since the Hasbro Asia Conehead 3 pack version of Thrust who had the same problem on his lift fans (I have two and they are both like that - but at least I can swap them now).

It would be great if they wrap Warrior Ratchet & Bisk back into a later wave too since both of those seem to have been skipped to - I remain a bit scared they might forget to do that though since Jazz was not reissued at all so far - where as Grimlock and Strongarm you can't escape from them.

Part of the new Combiner Force sub-line for Transformers: Robots in Disguise toys, the new class of Activators is appearing back in our plastic lives - many were first seen here - and thanks to fellow Seibertronian Bounti76, we have the first second US sighting in Centerville, Utah, and its Walmart store. As you can see pictured below, Strongarm and Trickout were available, and we're told the Bumblebee two-pack also was, as we reported a couple of weeks back- happy hunting!

New molds. They are kind of like Dark of the Moon era Stealth Force activated by minicons

That I do not know. I haven't seen them personally.

I will say though that after watching the reviews, Blurr is a stunner. Stormshot has some impressive paint. the Blastwave/Bludgeon remolding looks awesome. And Soundwave still looks cool but a bit finniky

When I found it, I compared it to RID Windblade and TR Chromedome on the pegs next to her. She's slightly smaller than the deluxe figures.

After the US sighting back here, we also have a UK sighting of the recent Transformers: Robots in Disguise Combiner Force figures, including Blastwave, Alpine Strike Drift, Stormshot and a deluxe Starscream! They were priced at £18 (~21 USD) at Sainsbury's in Mowbray, and spotted by fellow Seibertronian Collectotron - if you see any yourself make sure to flag it up in our Sightings database too!

That price for those RID toys isnt that bad compared to what I heard from some UK fans. Its pretty standard all things considered, with them being $19.99 USD in the US as MSRP. THE RID toys are $20 MSRP in Canada too.

Yeah, they have been reported already. Everything from that first wave has been found at US retail. We are now waiting for the second wave to surface which would have those new crash combiner characters.

Phew, I feel better now. Though I'll make sure to report anything else I find in the future ASAP, rather than wait several weeks.

Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 has provided us with 2 of his latest reviews for Robots in Disguise figures, this time in the form of Activator Combiners Strongarm with Trickout and Bumblebee with Stuntwing! These figures operate using Dark of the Moon era Stealth Force, with the vehicle mode exploding into battle mode, just this time the gimmick is minicon activated. These figures have also started to show up at retail as well. Check out Chuck's reviews below!

This set is an interesting package. Drawing upon elements once found in MASK, Strongarm is a simplified transformer that springs up into a monster truck type vehicle. Trickout, Strongarms companion, is a fun little truck that serves its purpose. Most collectors will pass on this set, but kids will love it and it makes a fun desk toy.



Bumblebee and Stuntwing make a nice little pair in the Combiner Force sub-line of RID. Bumblebee's transformation is less involved than Strongarm's although, the activated vehicle mode isn't as fun. Stuntwing is a fun little minicon and makes a great blaster.

Anyone else think Strongarm's legs are just oversized versions of her Legion class figure with different wheels?

too bad there's no way to get the minicon seperatley. looks to be the only appealing part of the set.
