Did you not see that Ultra Magnus? Nothing else matters, all these toys can suck it.

We've seen the official images, we've seen the first look Hasbro area coverage, we have a Seibertron.com gallery of the recent reveals, and now we have for you a video which gives a demonstration of the the new Robots in Disguise Deployer toys. Deployers Drift and Fracture interact with their minicons by propelling them out and the video gives you an idea of what the action feature looks like.

I might go ahead and pick up the Mini-Cons, as they're a little different and quite cool looking. The Deployers don't appeal to me in the slightest and the new play-style is beyond weak.

As for the rest of the Robots in Disguise line, I'm still trying to figure out what all the different figure types are. I get the impression Hasbro are falling back into the habit of over-saturating their own brand with numerous play options. I feel like I'm going to have to buy them all before I can figure out which one I actually want.

It's not as new as you think: FoC Soundwave and Blaster have the same gimmick, especially with the Mini-Cons being more like their little buddies.

I've got a few questions about this Rid toy.

What is the bigger non minicon toy's name? is it Fracture or Airazor?

How big is the non minicon toy? Deluxe class or Voyager Class?

What is HasTak calling the vechicle mode for the bigger non minicon toy? Please don't say deployer as that's the gimmick.

I was content to pretty much give this line a miss, but damn ... those minicons look too good to pass up.

It's not the same gimmick, though. Not entirely. The internal storage and automatic transformation of Rewind, Frenzy and company is what made them special to me. These Mini-Con are more like spring-launched projectiles that happen to transform. I don't know whether to view them as poor functioning weapons or broken Bot Shots.

I view them as a de-evolution of Gen. Rumble, Frenzy and co.: all transform into the same shape and can be shot out, they just don't have a springloaded transformation. :lol:

That's fair, but as a de-evolution I just can't help but think 'what's the point'? I suppose you could accuse me of over thinking it, but once you fire off a projectile you generally don't interact with it much. Otherwise what's the point of it being a projectile?

Except judging from the video, these things can actually shoot properly instead of jamming in the chest.

These minicons look fun with all their energon accessories. For $5 bucks a pop, I'll check 'em out. Especially the animals.

You might be asking nicely, but it doesn't change the fact that these things are officially called Minicon Deployers. here's the official Hasbro description of what they are called:

TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE MINI-CON DEPLOYERS
(Ages 6 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $19.99/Available: Fall 2015)
DEPLOYERS figures team with exclusive deployable MINI-CON figures to demolish enemies! Pick a side and choose a warrior: AUTOBOT DRIFT or DECEPTICON FRACTURE. Each DEPLOYERS figure comes with one MINI-CON figure that it can deploy into battle! DEPLOYERS figures convert from robot to vehicle in less than 10 steps. Their MINI-CON teammates convert in just one. AUTOBOT DRIFT figure works with all buzzsaw-shaped MINI-CON figures. DECEPTICON FRACTURE figure works with all torpedo-shaped MINI-CON figures. Collect and deploy! Take the action to your mobile device.
Download the TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE app to your digital device, then scan the shield to unlock a character or weapons or more!


Also, they arent voyager size, they are more like the old Beast Wars Mega size, so just a tad bit bigger than a deluxe.

Thanks for all the Information.

These Rid Minicons look interesting but probably won't buy any.

Anybody hear the rumor that Jazz is a heavy retool of Prime Deluxe Bumblebee? Personally I hope it's a retool of Hot Shot since that version of the mold had the gears in the neck fixed so the head would lay flat. Sideswipe looks really good but that Ultimate Prime looks exactly like the Hyperchange figure. I can maybe see one or two new parts.

Yeah, he's definitely been oversized. The new added parts are mostly to accomodate Minicons.

I'll get them when they are discounted. I dont feel the urge to also purchase the Minicon Deployers though, I dont feel the mechanism is worth playing with at my age (it looks very archaic). The minicons look good on their own, especially the animal ones.
