We've seen some review of the Transformers: Robots in Disguise Minicon assortment recently, but thanks to iSpotTV.com, we also get a new official commercial for the first two Deployers in the line: Drift and Fracture, with Jetstorm and Airazor respectively. Check out below, in the embedded video, the fancied-up demonstration of the automorph and launcher gimmicks!

Now that I know they're only $5 a pop, I'll be picking them up tomorrow morning when I do some grocery shopping. If others were hesitant about buying them like I was without knowing their price, the four should still be there (fingers crossed).

Yep, still in stock this morning. But now they're on a Flip N Change peg showing $9.99 or something like that, so probably won't sell out any time soon. Scanner on the aisle still showing ERROR, so I unplugged it to see if it would reboot. It did reboot, but still came up ERROR when all was said and done. Regardless, these four from Wave 2 were $4.93 each.

surprisingly, my wal-mart got these little guys but I didn't really see anything I wanted. I wish they were more like Arms Micron and became weapons (guns and swords and such). I'd be more into them. They cool for they are though.

meanwhile, store shelves are dreadfully bare. They had a single Steeljaw and some AOE one steps.

Oh, but they did have 3 Armada Megatrons and one g1 Megs. That was pretty cool....and about a few months late for me :)

Hey I opened my Sideswipe today and noticed his arms don't peg in where they are supposed to when he is in robot mode. Anyone else have this problem?

I think I can fairly say that everyone has that problem. It's a shame really because I'm really fond of him, but those arms just won't stay put!

He was one of the figures I was most looking forward to opening too. I guess it isn't as bad if you are just posing them and displaying them. But if I had bought him to play with I'd be more upset.

I'm about to do some sightings news for other RiD product and use this thread, but after that would love to report this as well. What Walmart (city, state) did you find these at?

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 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.

Actually on my pirthday, when I wen't to Target to shop, I saw legion Fixit and Underbite, deluxe Sideswipe and Jazz, the Leader Megatrons, and other stuff, but due to budget I got CW Dragstrip, along with some Legos. :lol:

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?
