Robots In Disguise has been arriving to retailers such as Amazon (US) and Smyth's (UK/Ireland) and they've been trickling out to the video reviewers, which we just reported on earlier this afternoon, and we have yet another video review to share with you:

Transformers Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Bumblebee, courtesy of fellow fan AirspeedPrime.

In it he showcases the new packaging, size comparisons and of course, the transformation. Is Bumblebee worth your money? Watch the video review to find out and when you're done, come on back to the forums and share your thoughts!

Found on Smyths website. Looks like Drift. Was he revealed already? :???:


Thanks for sharing this with us. Can you tell us how you found it on Smyths website? I can't find a Drift item from the Robots In Disguise toyline on their website.

I agree...with the exception of Grimlock, who should not be like he is. I'm not a diehard geewunner, but he really has been constantly the same every since G1, heck, Optimus has changed more then him!

Anyways, first wave, picking up Strongarm, because I like her design.

Drift I miiiight get, depends on how he comes across in a video review.

And since we got those little titan thingamajigs I'm guessing a Prowl, Cliffjumper, Hammer Strike and Thunderhoof are in the works. And going by the artwork, all four might be worth grabbing.

Oh. Joy. Another Bumblebee figure.

Sigh...

Ah well - I won't take it away from anyone if they want another. For my part, I don't foresee buying any Bbee figures from hereon out, unless a line comes out that's so good I feel inclined to collect all of them (even if there's a Bbee figure in the mix). So far though, this line doesn't look like it has that kind of pull.

All of the following have deviated from G1 Grimlock's form, deco, or both:

Well, then that's an argument against itself since G1 Grimlock had two different character portrayals. Dimwitted cartoon version, and intelligent yet bombastic comics version.

These things are crap!

Masterpiece line aside Has/Tak has seriously gone backwards with its toy design in the last few years. It wasn't that long ago they were producing some really nice stuff, Prime FE series for example, but now we get this garbage.

RID = Rubbish In Da'box!

Been messing with the Legion figures a lot. They're just as good as any of the other Legends/Cyberverse small guys that came before. No steps back there, and some really cool transformations to be quite honest. If you're into that size range you won't be disappointed.

The 3-Step "Hyperchange" Grimlock is simpler than I expected. I actually think the Transformation is fun, and the Dino mode is pretty good, but the robot mode lacks any articulation besides the shoulders which is very disappointing. Not the worst looking bot mode either, just can't do anything with it.

So yeah, if you like the old Cyberverse stuff, the Legions will not disappoint you. Hyperchange Grimlock is not recommended by me for anyone over the age of 7, unless you're really into the character or the kid stuff in general (no judgment here if you are).

I meant the character, color isn't a problem, but the constant of Grimlock has been he's big, and ego to match, has attitude and a relatively limited vocabulary. I'm omitting the RID (not RID15) version, because he wasn't even slightly the same. The main thing is that the new Grimlock appears to be an utter mockery to the character we all know and love.

Not trying to start a flamewar here, but the new Grimmy definitely rubs me the wrong way.

Thanks to the Hobbybase Facebook page, we get a group shot of the 2015 Kre-O Robots in Disguise line in-package. These were first on display last October at New York Comic Con. You can also see the official images by clicking here.

The in-package items include Custom Kreons Steel Jaw, Grimlock, Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. We also get to see the box the blind bag Kreons come in. The larger sets include Sideswipe Roadway Rundown, Strongarm Capture Cruiser, Bumblebee Disc Demolisher, Optimus Prime Beast Blaster and Underbite Jet Pack Take Down.

Definitely want Underbite and Hammerstrike Kreons. I wonder if they'll eventually come out in the Custom sets... even if those don't seem to do so well.

I wish there was more variety in helmets. Nearly everyone is either 'Ironhide' or 'Knock Out'.
Although they actually made a faceplate-less Optimus helmet, which is one I've been wanting, so that's good.

I can't quite tell, but it looks like they might have gotten the message and added solid, character-colored helmets to those custom sets...

Alot of people seem to be pegging Steeljaw as the main villain, however it seems like Underbite is the big bad. My suspicion is that Steeljaw will be an Autobot convert

I got that feeling as well, and I don't know if it's just my bias for wolves or there's something about the design of the character that hints at him being more noble than his initial Decepticon allegiance, but I'd love to see him have a change of heart too. Of the new Decepticons, he seems the least "monstery" in bot mode. Also, G1 Steeljaw is an Autobot, and Hasbro has generally been trying to keep names with their original factions post Armada, even if the characters themselves are reimagined compared to their original depictions. Maybe his name is a hint for us of what's to come story-wise for the new cartoon?

By the way, is it just me, or does Underbite's Kreon bare more than a passing resemblance to G1 Galvatron?

They're already doing that with Grimlock though.
