Our fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 has brought us today another video review, and this time it's Transformers: Robots in Disguise Combiner Force One-Step Strongarm and Heatseeker! You can checkout his thoughts below too, and some comparisons in the video itself.

Strongarm and Heatseeker are new additions to the RID One Step line. Strongarm features a new transformation and is color matched to the Ultra Bee combiner figure. Heatseeker is the more interesting of the two since it's a new character with a slick vehicle mode. Both are good additions to your collections.

Not really, having the elbows bending on the good direciton mades him less flawed than TR one.

Hey guys, been a while.
I haven't seen anyone post a sighting of these guys, prolly just missed it..
Anyway, I picked up the Dragstrip set in the Park City Walmart north of Chicago.
I actually think they look alright for being so simple.

Aside from the minicons, this is the only thing I've bought from this line..

Fellow Seibertronian DISCHARGE has dropped by with a US sighting from the Transformers: Robots in Disguise line, specifically the new Combiner Force series: two-packs for Dragstrip / Wildbreak and Warnado / Shockdrive! These were found in a Chicago Walmart for $14.97, as you can see in the images below.

Makes sure to use our Sightings section for yourself or help out fellow toy collectors too, and happy hunting!

Want to rep your favorite robots this upcoming school year? Well, Toys R Us has you covered there, too, because a good deal on TLK toys was not all that catalog had to offer. No, in addition, we also got a look at two new pieces of Transformers merchandise: A Backpack featuring artwork from Transformers Robots in Disguise, plus a new silver Autobot symbol lunch bag to go with it! Rock these threads and then rock the forums threads down below by letting us know if you see these at TRU or anywhere else in the coming weeks, and definitely tell us if you plan to be the coolest kid in school and pick these up.

I just got that circular in the mail today! I've seen that lunch bag for a month or so, though, ever since my "local" TRU set up their TLK display.

The Combiner Force Menasor figure from Robots in Disguise is now up for sale on Amazon. It is coming out in 3 days fellow Seibertronian Scotty P telling us the one he just ordered from them should arrive by next Wednesday. It is Amazon itself selling the toy (not a marketplace seller) for $29.99 and eligible for Prime shipping.
If you are interested in seeing more of this toy before purchasing him, check out the review we posted.

Our very own xRotorstormx found those Transformers Robots in Disguise backpacks and lunchbags that were just spotted in the new Toys R Us serial (plus a couple new ones) at a Michigan TRU! Along with the RID pack and the silver Autobot symbol lunch bag, she also found bags with artwork similar to standard Generations designs, plus an Autobot logo backpack!

That generations Bumblebee on that lunchbag looks really up to no good with that expression. I don't trust him at all. Nope nope.

According to twitter it looks like a new Transformers themed snack is going to be hitting shelves. These will be made by the brand Signature Kitchens which is owned and sold by Safeway grocery stores. They come in fun shapes of Transformers: Robots in Disguise characters, shown below.

If you need a Transformers lunchbox to go with your snacks, have a look here.

The first thing I thing I thought of when I saw this was that Filthy Frank video where the bald guy shouts "FRUIT SNACK! FRUIT SNACK!"

Twitter just announced this now? I've been seeing these at the grocery store since at least last Christmas.

Also Acme, Albertsons, Vons, Pavillions, Shaws, Jewel Osco! Just to name a few.

They're all owned by the same patent company which unified it's store brand across all its banners.

Somebody's got to bite the bullet fruit snack and give us a review of them.

They're like every fruit snack out there: artificial flavoring, gummy texture, and only slightly less likely to get stuck in your teeth than traditional Gummy Bears (rest assured, they will get stuck, but only to a slightly smaller extent). The shapes are hit-or-miss; there are as many that look like the picture on the box as there are those that are barely-decipherable blobs. You won't learn any more about Megatron in RID15 by buying these than you will by looking at the above pic.

That's not to say they're bad. It's just that fruit snacks are a dime-a-dozen product; if you've had one, you've had them all.

I work at a Harris Teeter grocery store in North Carolina. They've had those RID fruit snacks for about 2 years now...maybe 3 years. They cost like $.97 with your VIC card. They taste just like every other fruit snack. I buy them every once in awhile just for a treat...

There is lots of new Robots in Disguise toys found both online and in stores for Canadian fans.

Canada had skipped on every Legion class wave under the "weaponiser" so toys like Bisk and Grounpounder never appeared. However, Bisk is rereleased with Blurr under the "combiner force" subline and is currently found at Toysrus.

Image

The latest Warriors such as Twinferno, Thermidor and Bludgeon have been found in Toysrus stores and are also available on both toysrus.ca and walmart.ca

Image

The same applies to the latest wave of Crash Combiners which includes Dragbreak Lunaforce Primestrong and Shocknado. They have ben found at both Walmart and Toysrus stores but only Toysrus.ca has them online at the moment.

When it comes to Thermidor, this review, and images found within, will mostly be comparing him to Bisk. I'd love to review the toy as new but in reality he is similar to Bisk in every way aside from the head and deco. For those who do not own this mold, it is simply perfect. The alt mose is original, the robot mode has great personality with alt mode integration. It's a fun transformation that is not at all bothersome and both intuitive and creative. The real difference here is the deco and the head. The head has very features, he actually has pupils for a change.

The deco for the eyes works rather well. The paint may be sloppy depending on your copy, especially in the lower mandibles. The amount of paint apps between both is almost the same but Thermidore wins out with having his whole abdominal area painted silver while Bisk's is left unpainted. Also, I always appreciate when the rims are painted which is the case here so no need to wait for the Takara version here (not that it would happen).

I recomend this toy to any fan of the Bisk mold and to those who have not experienced this mold yet, as well to those who want a nice representation of the character found in the show. I am happy with my purchase and there isn't much more I could ask for.
