Greetings Seibertron, the newest wave of Transformers Robots in Disguise has hit Taiwan, and thanks to blogger Blacklai we now have some new in-hand shots of RID Warrior Class Scorponok and Windblade! Scorponok strangely changes the trend of Decepticons in this line (turning from vehicles to animalistic robots) by being a straight beast-former. And the fan-pole originated Windblade gets herself a brand new mold as well. Have a look at them in and out of package below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com: home for the best Galleries and Conversation around!

Scorponok looks great but I REALLY wish his tail was more articulated and less hollow. Perhaps a Shapeways upgrade is in order?

Windblade though...ech. What a sad sack of crap. The basic mold actually looks alright, but the lack of wrist articulation really hurts her and the paintjob is just pathetic. Hopefully the TAV release will give the girl a makeover, though the arms are probably gonna need Shapeways replacements.

Yeah, Scorponok is awesome, but nothing short of TT can save that windblade mold, shame the sword is just sh|t unpainted plastic, the entire thing screams 'crapped out as cheap as possible', it doesn't even resemble the rid deco as far as I can remember =;

That deco on Windblade does ,what appears to be a decent new mold, no favors. What's worse is I'd buy the heck out of the figure if it looked like her actual color scheme. And that unpainted sword is terrible too, and the sword on the Generations versions is one of my favorite parts of that toy.

Oh, yeah, that was easily the best part of her figure 8-)

I wish I liked the RiD aesthetic more, because the actual engineering on Scorponok looks pretty nice, especially for a figure that does only slightly more than "stand up" to transform. Squat and brutish scorpion to tall and lanky swashbuckling robot, now that's cool.


Windblade toys never not look horrible. A shame on it's own, but then they're so danged persistent about promoting the character it looks even worse when they cheap out.

Yeah. It's a real shame, because the base design is pretty cool, but when the best toy of her on the market is a £15 unofficial Legends scale toy, you know you dun goofed.

Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Down_Shift, an entire wave of Transformers: Robots in Disguise toys - found by Cybertron.ca Xtreme987 user in a Toys'R'Us store in Ontario - we knew absolutely nothing about before have surfaced! This menagerie includes Deluxe Power Surge Optimus Prime in a deco that resembles Ultra Magnus in vehicle mode; a purple repaint of Scorponok called Paralon; and most surprisingly of all, an entirely new mold Starscream based very much on his G1 incarnation. All 3 are packaged in the "Clash of the Transformers" subline of packaging that has been previously exclusive to Toys R Us stores. Check out the image below and tell us what you think in the forums by clicking here.

Paralon we got a look at before with his BW Scorponok-esque head, but that Starscream WOW! His Vehicle Mode wings appear to be forward-swung like the Animated and WFC/FOC Starscream designs. The shoulders also kinda remind me of the coronation shoulder pads G1 Screamer wore in the 1986 movie.

I can't quite make out the logo, but unless I'm mistaken, they're part of the "Clash of the Transformers" subline. Either that, or a new TRU-exclusive line.

A new deluxe Starscream that's mostly in actual Starscream colors? Yes please! Paralon looks cool but I would've liked to have seen a color other than purple on it. Or at least another color mixed in that doesn't necessarily have to be green but green would've worked too obviously. Optimus looks ok too but I would've rather have had Ultra Magnus shades of red and blue in there instead of Optimus Prime shades to go with that white. Is there even a difference in the reds between the two? If not then there should be.

Also, is it just me, or does Starscream look to actually have good paint apps?
Considering the paint apps in this line have been a bit... ah... crap; he looks really standout from what I can see. I mean okay yeah, this is a blurry image and maybe it'll be a horror story once I actually see it, but right now he looks beautiful.

Screamer does look pretty good, though his proportions kinda remind me of Fracture's.

Maybe they're the same body type but with different Alt modes.

TFW has (somewhat) better pics, which seems to show they actually bothered to make Starscream's crest red this time around.

I very highly doubt they'd make an entirely new mold in an entirely new design for a pre-existing major character in the continuity without intending to use them. At the very least we might have assumed Ratchet might not have been in RiD despite his toy because it's just a remold and hey, it's a nice nod to TFP fans; but this? Naw. No way Screamer gets this much treatment and doesn't get to be in the show. Especially when there's a villain vacancy to be filled up as of Season 2's ending... and the whole corrupt Cybertron council rejecting autobots thing seems to echo Screamer's role in IDW.

So to sum up...
-G1 Starscream body in general
-Animated Starscream alt-mode
-1986 Movie Coronation shoulders
-TFP Starscream head

How many more references could you possibly put in? At this point they'd have to give him cyber key powers, a birdface and the ability to combine with G2 Dreadwing if they wanted to reference more screamers.
