The new pre-order listings reported earlier have given us a look at a new upcoming product for Robots in Disguise, as well as a hint at the other characters that might appear on the show.

The product is called Tiny Titans. They are small collectable non-transforming figures. They can be purchased as a blind single or as a whole set.
This product showcases some characters that have yet to be revealed elsewhere such as Prowl, Cliffjumper and others. A photo of the set is mirrored below.

OK, I may have missed the memo here, but is it just me or are all the Decepticons animal-based:

Underbite: dog?
Steeljaw: wolf
Bisk: Lobster
Thunderhoof: stag
Hammerstrike: hammerhead shark

And Cliffjumper? I thought he was killed off early on Prime, so it must be the G1 guy like Prowl.

By the way, is there any reason to suspect that Japan will treat RID 2015 as a sequel to Animated, given the ID numbers used (TA-# for Animated, TAV# for RID 2015)

Are these like the cancelled Robot Heroes?

As above, the Cliffjumper and Prowl look G1-y.

Yeah, they are all Animals. I dont know if they will explain it as a side effect of hiding out on earth. But it's animals in robot mode, that's what's interesting.

Ah Oh.
I'm diggin' these animal based Decepticons.
I hope we get a warrior class of that stag.
I was so going to try to avoid this line.
Oh well.

...and that Prowl toy sure looks like Streak to me.

Good call! Bisque is indeed a type of soup, usually based on crustaceans like, here, a lobster. Gotta love Hasbro's sense of humor :lol:

And crud, with the animal-cons I'm slowly being drawn into the line, despite promising myself to avoid it. Don't ask. :oops:

I feel the same way (as does Cobotron). I actually find this quite original. These decepticons are original characters with original designs that dont play much of an homage to anything previous. That is quite rare when you think of it (both Prime and Animated were all about homages and inspiration from previous lines). I might just get the decepticons (if made in warrior class) and have them battle my Prime line autobots with some Beast Hunters dragons thrown in for good measure.

And I like the Bisk name, it's very cute.

The fun thing about this line is that I wont feel rushed to get them or to get them all (as opposed to Combiner wars where one MUST get them all before one particular member gets sold out). I can just wait for a discount. For some reason, I am always more open to trying out discounted transformers and rarely regret a purchase.

Bleh, color me unimpressed by animal-based modes/names. And the appearance of Cliffjumper makes me worried thee continuity with Prime is gonna suck, which is one of the things that made the show really appealing to me.

Airazor's gender in the Hasbro line is due to Beast Wars story editors Bob Forward and Larry DiTillio's insistence. The original Airazor toy wasn't developed with a specific gender in mind, and Bob & Larry wanted a larger female presence in the show, and the Airazor toy seemed as good a choice as any. They requested the change early enough that the toy's packaging bio could have its pronouns changed to female. The later Transmetal version of Airazor was the first American-released Transformer mold created to represent a female character.

In the Japanese dub of Beast Wars, Airazor was made male.

That is not the Star Saber.

You didn't know that? But we got glimpses of all those guys in the old promo vids for the series:

Looks more like G1 Cliffjumper along with G1 Prowl included here because G1.

Did they only have 3 colors to mold these in? Steeljaw, Thunderhoof (what a bizarre name), and Hammerstrike are cast in the same shade of blue despite the art saying otherwise...
And Prowl's grey for some reason, and Underbite's colors are reversed, and, well, you get the idea.


I hope Underbite and Hammerstrike get decent toys.

The cartoon actually doesn't look half bad, I have to admit. Very kiddy but that's not a bad thing.

Also, even without seeing him I want Bisk. Because he's a lobster and crustaceans are my jam. (Also he could make a sweet custom Nautilator at a stretch...)

Yeah, I've made the decision to get most of the Decepticons from this line. So far with the exception of Hammerstrike and Underbite, I just don't like their look.

Bisk because his name is Bisk.

Steeljaw looks interesting enough.

And Thunderhoof reminds me of the song Thunderhorse by Dethklok.
