By the Allspark! The Robots in Disguise toyline is taking full advantage of the late summer retail reset season, and thanks to generally cool guy and Seibertron podcaster Razorclaw0000 we have more sightings to report. The Toys R Us exclusive Clash of the Transformers sub-line, which has been available at Canadian retail for some time now, has at last hit US Toys R Us stores!

These were found at the Wilkes-Barre Township, PA Toys R Us. Razorclaw's email to the staff came during my lunch hour, so I hit up my local TRU in Raleigh, NC and sure enough, the 3-Step Hyperchange Heroes and Megatronus were available there too. This could be a sign that these toys were "street dated" and are hitting stores nationwide almost simultaneously.

The 2 packs of Legions figures will set you back $11.99 each, and the Deluxe class figures cost $14.99 each. Both of these size classes are simply repaints of earlier toys from the line, with the exception of new mold Legion Megatronus, and are certainly reminiscent of the now infamous 2007 Allspark Battles Transformers Movie sub-line.

The 3-Step Hyperchange Heroes are $19.99 each and are not only retools of the earlier versions, but they include new weapons as well. Finally, the all new, all big 5-Step Megatronus figure will run you $29.99. Keep in mind with all this listed pricing that Toys R Us prices may vary from store to store, or increase without warning at any time!

Galleries of many of the earlier versions of these molds can be found in our Robots in Disguise Galleries.

Be sure to let our News Crew know here if you find anything you deem newsworthy. If you see these toys locally be sure to let your fellow collectors know in your local Sightings Thread, or utilize our Sightings Resource page which has been updated to include these figures.

Sweet! I hope you can order on the website as I don't get to ToysRus often. I'd been trying to get Canadian friends to find these for me. Got to tell them to call off the hunt.

Ah, the joys of AllSpark Blue again!

They had just put our full cases of the deployers and minicons, MP Bluestreak, and CW Legion cases with Rodimus and Skywarp. It was the fullest my TRU has been in ages.

If only the warriors were $14.99 everywhere! :BOT:

I'm mainly wanting the warrior class figures. Getting the others would be a bonus. But my collection is mainly the warrior and one step at the moment. Though the deployed and mini cons are sure to follow I'm sure.

Funny story: I ran into this 10 year old in Walmart looking at RiD stuff and Combiner wars stuff. Know what he said? Offroad and Alpha Bravo were his favorites since they were so unique and he hated that there were 3 different jets! Nice to hear what youngsters look at. He also said the RiD stuff was far and away his favorite line cause they looked so cool and he could transform them quickly. Quite a nice perspective. :BOT:

I can imagine, it's nice to hear what a kid likes rather then what a collector wants to complain and nitpick about.

Actually to be honest, I've not gotten any of the Arielbots cuz of the same reason, and I would much rather get the Silverbolt mold when Computron comes out.

Ok, question to fans of the line: if you were to get only one figure (either RID or TAV, that's a different part of the issue), which one would it be?

I have Grimlock, and I really really like him, but keep seeing a lot of them on sale at shops in town, and with Auto Assembly coming up, I want to have at least a vague idea of things I might want to pick up without overthinking it.

I know Sideswipe has terrible joints which hinder any kind of enjoyment of the toy, really.
Strongarm has big back kibble, but any other takes on her?
Jazz? Drift? Steeljaw?

Drift, Drift, Drift. All day, all night.
He is just a really solid TF. Simple and fun.
Jazz is really cool too, though.
...and I am still a big supporter of Strongarm. She is just such a nice girl with a good heart.

In this order V,
Drift
Jazz
Strongarm
Steeljaw
Sideswipe

Gosh darnit, Bee is a pretty cool lil TF too.

Bumblebee too, you say? Hm. I've done so well without owning a single Bumblebee so far... :-?


Anyone else want to add to Cobo-san?

Eh. Not a fan of the G1 scheme on such a different thing. Greenlock is perfect as he is.

So majestic..

Dear god, the typos! :BANG_HEAD:

Still, Bee is the most interesting mold for me. He look great from the back, his kibbles are reasonable, his transformation is clever and fun, plus both vehicle and bot modes are great. Finally, the Takara deco make buying a Reprolabel set a moot point.

Drift and Jazz are nice, but both have horrible back that look like a squished vehicle. Jazz's legs are ugly, with the hollowness very apparent and the fact that the leg's wheels don't fold away is at fault. As for drift, his face fell off all the time whennever I look at his horns funny. But that may just be mine.

Yeah, Drift is really good.

Jazz is really cool too, though.
Well duh! ;)

To answer your question; Drift. I'm going re-arrange Cobs list a bit though .

Drift
Fixit (yeah, you forgot about this lil awesome guy :-P )
Jazz
Bee
Grimlock (only because I want him to be bigger, I added him for others)
Sideswipe (the arms are more annoying than a problem)
Steeljaw
Strongarm

I don't own OP so I can't comment on him yet. Honestly, they are all pretty cool figures and I don't regret picking up any of them. They only just barely edge each other out on the list rankings.

A tiny Legion-sized update from the Transformers Robots in Disguise line, as Amazon.com has listed two upcoming repaints in the smaller class: Patrol Mode Strongarm from ...well, Strongarm (now with added misgendering of the character, woo!), and Ultra Magnus from Optimus Prime. We had heard of these previously, but check out their official stock photography mirrored below, and follow the links to pre-order!

Decepticons beware, because Patrol Mode Strongarm is here to thwart their evil schemes! This Autobot warrior figure is on patrol, and She converts in 4 steps from robot mode to police truck mode and back. SHe’ll keep his eye on those sneaky Decepticons and bust them at their evil deeds! You can unlock the character in the Transformers Robots in Disguise app when you scan the figure’s badge into the app! (Device not included.) Whether She’s in police truck or robot warrior mode, Decepticons won’t be able to dodge him HER for long! Transformers and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro.

Decepticons beware, because Ultra Magnus is here to bring the hammer down on their evil ways! This Autobot warrior figure is the ultimate Decepticon hunter, and he converts in 5 steps from robot mode to truck mode and back. You won’t find him backing down from a fight! You can unlock the character in the Transformers Robots in Disguise app when you scan the figure’s badge into the app! (Device not included.) Whether he’s in truck or robot warrior mode, Decepticons won’t be able to withstand his battle charge for long! Transformers and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro.

why am I such a sucker for a Magnus repaint? :lol:
Wish they would have packed him in that TRU 2 pack with Megatronus. Now I gotta have two white Prime's. :BANG_HEAD:
