In Italy, as some other countries in Europe, the 6th January sees the celebration of the Epiphany (if you're into sorta-religious celebrations, that is) and the end of winter festivities nation-wide. For the occasion, much like for Easter and other holidays, Hasbro has released a Befana - the Italian name of the day - themed Robots in Disguise stocking. Though I am not sure what is inside these, expect sweet treats and maybe a small toy, as is customary for the day, or a lump of coal if you've been bad!

While some of the items included are re-packs of previous figures, such as Night Ops Bumblebee and Gold Armor/regular green Grimlock, we do have the new Blurr, Bludgeon and Twinferno figures - and an entirely new Thermidor one (though probably a redeco of Bisk)! Check it out below.

Found Doradus Legion Springload today, he's a marvelous little toy. Really little, but the mouth, arm articulation, and transformation scheme all make up for it. I do wish they didn't use black for the sides of the truck or the front grill. At least I can paint the front silver, make that look good. (when I stop obsessively transforming him, that is)

Ha! I found Springload and Starscream today too. At Target.
Haven't had time to open them yet, but if you like 'em Noidea, that makes even more excited to dig into Springload. I like your taste in Legions. ;)

I think the Quillfire mold would make a great RID Terrorcon Blot figure!

Alright thank you Will that means that Bisk is more likely to get a new head for Thermidor.


But not a guarantee. Paralon's head shouldn't really count as it's not show-accurate, and is probably a pretooled head the designers had some fun with. :lol:


if i had to venture a guess, i'd say that Paralon's noodle was intended to approximate Beast Wars Scorponok. perhaps foreshadowing some manner of Platinum edition boxset?

Cybertron/10th ann Megatron
RID Paralon
Generations Waspinator
Uni 2 Dinobot

just need Tarantulas and Terrorsaur and we'll have a full Darksyde crew to go with our updated Axalon crew (gen Rhinox and Rattrap, Uni2 Cheetor, Cybertron/10th ann Primal (or MP))

Hasbro drops yet another TV ad on us today; but instead of Titans Returning, we get Combiners... forcing in the Robots in Disguise line; as they show off the crash combiners, the activators class and some rather impressive animation. Check it out embedded below!

The dust being thrown up around Prime looks terrific.

Can the ones that form upper bodies only form that or can they also turn into legs?

Those that become upper bodies can only be upper bodies, same for those that become legs

they only form the upper bodies and the others only form the legs. But at least they each have their own robot modes.

It doesnt help that the gimick looked super weak in the ad. It's almost like nothing happened when he attached the smaller toy.

No they don't, they really are just "shirts" and "pants". They're nothing more than glorified G1 Duocons :shock:

If you look at the 2:27 mark you can see the chap grabs a Sideswipe from the back of the stand in it's solo-robot mode.

Also if you look at the CGI mobile game models you can see the individual arms hanging off the models when they are combined. (especially on the jets)

I've also included the official Hasbro render of Storm hammer in their individual robot mode - check the rest of the images for some more.

So yep they do have 3 modes Either :

Vehicle/Robot & Upper Body
or
Vehicle/Robot & Lower body.

At least the kid remembered to flip the feet down. He's one up on the photographers.

We know they have bot modes, the question was if they could form both the top and bottom halves of the combined mode which they can't.

JelZe had just claimed otherwise in her previous post above. That's what RAR was responding to.

I forgot, simply because the images for the smaller robot modes were smaller than the others and thus stood out less. I thus retract my statements and hide in shame :oops:

I really don't mind the simplicity of the process. These toys are for kids, after all. And we all know Hasbro has been simplifying transformations over the last couple of years.
