Via fellow Seibertronians Tresob and Bounti76 we have some news on a line of Transformers: Robots in Disguise toys that had yet to make it to US retail: 6 inch mini non-transforming titans of the main Autobot cast! A first wave of these Titan Guardians came out through Market Six two years ago, but Grimlock and Strongarm are an apparent second wave that hadn't made it stateside yet.

Along with them, both users also spotted some Optimus Prime and Bumblebee coin banks - all of which is pictured below from Walgreens stores, check it out!

The figures appear to be about five-six inches tall (give or take...it was hard to scale them). They have minimal paint-apps and arm articulation (but not leg articulation).

Not included in the picture were Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. I don't know what the distribution is, but I saw two Sideswipes and two Grimlocks.

These figures ring up at $6.99 each.


The Titans are about deluxe size, and only included the main Autobot cast. Coin banks were Optimus and Bumblebee only. I included a picture of them all together with a lingering Chromedome so you could get an idea of the size.

Via YouTube user Ancient Robot, we have a look at the commercial ad for the Transformers: Robots in Disguise Combiner Force toyline, featuring the two combiners of Ultra Bee and Menasor - and embedded below for your viewing pleasure! You probably already have the toys by now, too, but here it is.

It's weird. 2 should be the minimum.

I really hope they do something nice for the UK market like actually release Legion Bisk.


funny you should say that ;)

Starting to hope we get drift in crash combiner form, although he would have been ideal to be the counterpart coming with Grimlock, instead of a third Optimus.

We have a bit of Transformers Robots in Disguise news. Firstly, Walmart.ca has had bios for the newest warrior toys of Thermidor, Bludgeon and Twinferno. We cannot find these on the packaging since the space is occupied by the instructions.

Here are the bios:

Decepticon Bludgeon is a dangerous and masterful warrior. Sharp as a knife on the battlefield, the ferocious samurai uses his mighty swords to pull off the ultimate surprise ambush on the Autobots.


Lobstercon Thermidor will do anything to become the captain of his ship again. Forced to become a regular crewmate, the Decepticon scavenger remains crusty over that freelootin’ Captain Scuttle who pilfered his prized ship from him. Plundering for useful weapons and tech, Thermidor scours the universe, clawing for his next opportunity to take revenge.


As Autobot Twinferno might say, “Great minds think alike”-- at least when it comes to destroying Decepticons. The flying warrior has two minds that barely agree on anything, but that only fuels his fire for demolishing the enemy. When Autobot Twinferno is in dragon mode, he breathes fire from two heads. It’s double the trouble for the Decepticons!


While these latest warrior toys have not been found in the US yet (nor listed anywhere online), they have been found in the UK and are currently on sale at Tesco for £ 9.99.

This came to us from fellow Seibertronian Stuart Maximus who also told us that the latest legion class wave, which includes Blurr, has also been found in the UK.

Happy hunting for fellow UK fans!

"Scuttle" could have been an early name for Clawtrap.

'Lobstercon' is a kind of fraud perpetrated by unscrupulous fishmongers. ;)

So Twinferno IS a dragon? Then what's with all the jet stuff?

Never take such bios seriously as they're written on the fly and riddled with errors.

So do I, though Primelock is a pretty sweet name I will give it that.

I saw Twinferno & Bludgeon in ASDA as well - they also had in a whole bunch of other Transformers types they don't usually have - shoved in a corner including The Last Knight Wave 2 *and 1?* (unless it's some sort of refresh)
Everything they had was crazy expensive though so I just bought a Bludgeon.

Who is kinda fun - even if his sword is a bit short.

I really wanna get Bludgeon ever since WJ dropped the idea that he fits into an Animated display well. Makes me want a couple other toys from this line, really...

Now I know we had that Twinferno review by Will some time back, and I will not deny that Twinferno is pretty simplistic, but the flame accessories that can go in his hands and feet make him so much fun!

And while this is not 100% confirmed, this is how he will be displayed in my collection:

Hanging around from my light fixtures :D

Anyone see these yet?

Found these at a Walgreen's in Menifee, CA tonight.

Transformers Value Figure 6 inch AST

Looks like there's supposed to be a total of six, maybe in two waves. Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Sideswipe, and Steeljaw show up on each other's boxes while Grimlock and Strongarm show up on those boxes.

Also, this Walgreen's has a brand new buy two, get one free promo at the $6.99 price point.

I am always overjoyed when fans have more fun than what I anticipated, it means I kept the hype down enough for everyone to have the joy of discovering a toy's fun all on their own :)
