Howdy fellow Seibertronians! Robots in Disguise 6" Titan Guardians were spotted at US retail today at the Family Dollar in Houma, LA by none other than yours truly. This line was previously reported here to include the 12" Heros with 4 points of articulation and the 6" with no articulation.

I can positively report that the Guardians do in fact have 3 points of articulation, including: shoulder and waist rotation. The Heroes line include Optimus Prime (not pictured), Bumblebee, Sideswipe and Steeljaw.

Mini Titans?

When they repaint this line, they'll call them Giant Midgets.

hrrrmmmm. I reported on these a while back but it never made news. I figured it was because they weren't really new. Thats like the second news item I submitted that didn't go anywhere. Oh well.

Did you send them to the news team? Next time you find something that you think might be newsworthy, you have to send it to them sing the link in my signature. It's the only way to make sure they see it.

I have before. Maybe I didn't this time, but it hasn't been the first time I've submitted something that turned up later. I don't want to come off as whining but part of the fun of reporting new stuff is getting credit. But it's ok.

That's totally understandable. So for next time, just to make sure you have the odds in your favour, send it through "submit news" / the link in my signature.

At first glance, I thought we had a new Rat Bat mold. More like Batwing Blade?

He does indeed set the bar pretty high. He is more like a nice legends figure.

While Botcon had no new reveals concerning Robots in Disguise, SDCC tried to make up for it.

Firstly, we have some truly never before seen Legion reveals such as Windblade, Drift and Thunderhoof (Come on Hasbro, he didn't need another pair of antlers, just leave the rake!) as well as others revealed in the app such as Ultra Magnus (check out that artwork), Alpine Sideswipe and Patrol Strongarm. You can find the entire gallery here.

And secondly we finally got the official reveal of the Clash of the Titans line. While these have been out in Australia and Canada, Hasbro had yet to reveal this line or offer official pictures for the legion class figures. These are redecos of various classes of toys from Robots in Disguise exclusively at Toysrus on an unprecedented global scale (distributed through both Takara in Japan and Hasbro in the rest of the world). Following the pictures, you will see the press release of these new figures.

TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE – CLASH OF THE TRANSFORMERS PRODUCT INFORMATION


New for 2015, Hasbro’s TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE gets even more epic with CLASH OF THE TRANSFORMERS, an exclusive product line coming to Toys “R” Us stores featuring exclusive characters and looks from the final episodes of season 1 of the new animated series TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE, airing in the U.S. on Cartoon Network.



As the season builds to an epic conclusion, the rampaging Decepticons are joined by an evil bot, one more powerful and more sinister than any Decepticon loose on Earth. His name is Megatronus, one of the original 13 Primes who quit his gig and became the first Decepticon. Only with the help of the greatest Autobot of all time, Optimus Prime, whose training in the Realm of the Primes has led to this moment along with the powerful and versatile Decepticon Hunter weapons can Bumblebee and his team hope to power up and defeat Megatronus!



The Decepticons are united. The Autobots are powered up. Earth's fate hangs in the balance. The CLASH OF THE TRANSFORMERS is on!

I actually had those "Clash of the Titans" figures in my hands today but passed on them. I was mainly after Megatronus so didn't really feel like paying $20AU for him and a white Prime repaint.

Even setting aside the awesomeness that was Legion Fixit (and the only slightly less awesome Legion Underbite), those Drift and Windblade figures are atrocious. Drift would be acceptable if his hood folded back, but I guess that another hinge was outside of Hasbro's budget. Windblade is just a mess. I know these things are cheap, but the first wave produced some pretty decent figures. Drift and Windblade are just lazy.

Oh well, at least Megatronus and Thunderhoof look nice.

So does Hasbro or Takara have any plans to make warrior class versions of the decepticons from the show?

Yes. Warriors Megatronus, Thunderhoof and Quillfire were all found on listings. Hasbro said they wanted to release the good guys first but that more decepticons would come.
