They never really made it to the US, but the rest of the world was able to get both the Transformers: Robots in Disguise Hero Mashers and Kre-O Custom Kreons a long long time ago. Now, thanks to a sighting by ScottyP, and a follow-up by Seibertron, we finally have a report of them showing up for all your building bot needs! If you come across any new toys, make sure to flag them up in the Sightings section and forums, as always, too.

ScottyP wrote:These have finally come out in the US. Found first wave at a TJ Maxx in Raleigh, NC today. Sideswipe also there and not pictured, was up in the checkout lane and not back with these others. Bumblebee, Steeljaw, and Sideswipe are first wave of them. $5.99 each.

These were released in the rest of the world ages ago, but they were never available online or at brick and mortar in the US previously.

Funny Thing HTS has Legion Thunderhoff in stock but not Drift or Windblade.

Here is a screenshots from the RID mobile games of what Crazybolt will mostly likely look like in the cartoon.:

Judging by the picture above, Crazybolt is a muscle car, like Bumblebee. His robot mode from all angles clearly shows that he is actually a reptile of some sorts. Is he a type of lizard or a Dinobot like Grimlock? According to Shuttershock, he illustrated RID Crazybolt as a dinosaur called a Dilophosaurus, and the the original Beast Wars Crazybolt as a frilled dragon, due to his looks and size. What do you think? :CON:

Looks like some sort of iguana or monitor lizard, he has a very similar mouth to the monitor family, especially the gila monster :-?

Hellscream9999, from what I know so far is that Crazybolt is a reptilian Transformer of sort. But the question remains which reptile is Crazybolt mostly based on? Is he most likely a lizard such as the iguana, monitor lizard, Gila monster, or a dinosaur called Dilophosaurus as Shuttershock once stated? :CON: Which one is it?

Dunno >:oP

Most of the 'cons released have only been generic animals; We don't know what species of wolf steeljaw is, and others only have aspects of an animal in their design (thunderhoof) so I'd imagine that it's just meant to be a generic lizard.

Well, Hellscream9999, given the image of Crazybolt's head, you will notice there is a body part attached to the top of the head that resembles a crown, which suggest he a dinosaur called Dilophosaurus and not a lizard. This means that his robot mode is mostly based on this:

How would you describe that? :CON:

Still not seeing it on the deployer - and the starter has a mask, it's shaped all wrong for the dino theory. First of all, he's a quadruped, that alone breaks the tie to the dinosaur for me. As for the head, those three horns are far more noticeable than the gold thing on the deployer, that plus the head shape and width makes me think of a horned lizard. As for the starter, nothing about it says dinosaur to me, I get more of a predatory cat or lizard from it; he looks like a very stylized horned lizard to me, he even has horns covering his face.

Hellscream9999, could you please provide me a more detailed description or evidence as to why Crazybolt is a lizard and not a dinosaur? I'm only talking about the image taken from the game showing Crazybolt in all forms and in all angles, and not the image of the toy based on him. :CON: :???:

Worked this up, if you still think it's a dino after this, I don't know what to tell you:

What I wanna know is why Crazybolt has two different designs.

As for what kind of (vomiting) lizard he is, maybe something like his namesake, the Predacon Crazybolt of Beast Wars Neo?

No prob :-D

based on his namesake, and the general design - as pointed out in my convenient graphic - I think it's safe to say that they are both loosely based on lizards of some sort :-?

Hellscream9999, just because that the horned lizard is named Crazybolt, does that mean he`s a psychopath, like Springload? :CON:

Isn't psychopath the genaric/default personality for Decepticons?

I would think lizardy is less of a personality telltale than a name like Crazybolt.

Most of the cons are pretty shallow one shot characters on that show anyway. They're just bad guyz doing bad things 'cause that's all they knows how to do. to be read in Thunderhoof's voice

Got mine; Love him so much, he's so dynamic, his weapon is amazing - props to chuck for pointing out the butt of the gun can sit naturally under his arm ;)^


And, yes, we do need more of warriors like this, so very much.
