We finally got stock images for Transformers Robots in Disguise Legion Groundbuster yesterday and now we have a video review. This comes to us from chefatron, who informs us in this review that the toy is not shortpacked. That is good news to fans of the Legion class. This seems to also be the most articulated figure yet from this class for the line.

It was hard to not take Quilly and the 4 pack with me but I spent all my money on Marvel Legends a few weeks back. :( Based on the other sightings it seems like Walmarts are getting them in.
Yup, yup, I've seen them at Wal-Mart in south Louisiana.

I believe the term you're looking for is:

Fellow Seibertronians, our fellow user Chuckdawg has posted a video review of Transformers RID Minicon Weaponizers Strongarm and Sawtooth. This is a new figure of Strongarm which includes a Minicon partner, which can now be used as a weapon, when combined with the armor that Strongarm comes equipped with. The review has been posted below, so check her out, and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Nice review, I might pick this up. The only thing I dont like is how the clear plastic parts dont really add much to the robot, unlike what we got with Prime.

I do really like her! Worthy of consideration :MAXIMAL:

Ok Strongarm will be mine at some point. Since I've been putting my few RiD figures with my Generations figures I bet she'll make a neat companion for Swerve and Tailgate.

After talking with Chuckdawg, she's less articulated than the first Warrior Class Strongarm figure. No waist or thigh swivels, and no neck/head ball joint. However, I'd still like to get her!

Remember how just a few days ago we showed off a review of Legion Groundpounderbuster? Well, something that very few people saw coming was what happened next. Thanks to Toywiz.com we now have new packaging images of the soon to be released Legion class Bisk! Now you all may remember that Bisk is getting a one-step as well as a warrior figure, so now we you have 3 different Bisks to choose from! Check out the stock image mirrored below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below. And as always stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your latest Transformers News and Galleries (Number 4000 coming your way tonight!!!)!

Darn, the lack of thigh swivel is usually a deal breaker for me when it comes to toys I dont ned to have.

Strongarm looks great! Sculpt wise. But, her lack of paint in alt mode is a real let down. She looks unfinished. Poor girl keeps getting jipped in the paint department. I promised myself I wouldn't do this, but I may wait to see what Takara does. I just like the character so much, and I'd like to have this toy.

Lil Bisk looks good. I'm glad RID is carrying the torch for the Legion class.

Bisk and Clampdown are curiously similar characters concept wise - both orange, both crab like etc..

Are they related ?

Yes, they are both decepticons ;)

Aside from that, they are very different and as related to eachother as any decepticon is related to another. One is tall and powerful (pretty deadly one on one) and the other is a pint sized bot that is meant to be the butt of a joke.

Decepticon Decapod Crustaceans to be exact. Crabs (Clampdown) and Lobsters (Bisk) belong to the same Order (Decapoda), but are in separate branches from there (Brachyura for Crabs, Astacidea for Lobsters, Crayfish and their kin).

They share something else in common.

Thanks to our friend Chuckdawg1999 we have our first video review of Minicon Weaponizers Sideswipe and Windstrike, the wavemates to Strongarm and Sawtooth! This Sideswipe is a redeco of the Minicon Battle Packs Sideswipe in Red Alert's colors, while Windstrike is an all new minicon weapon. Check out the review below and let us know what you think, and as always stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your latest Transformers News and Galleries!

While both of these toys have already been revealed at Botcon 2016, we didnt get stock images of Robots in Disguise Warriors Power Surge Optimus Prime and Scatterspike, aside from CG renders of the later. Now, thanks to hobbybrinquedos, we have stock images of the actual toys. Better than that, we have the package images which gives us a good look at what Scatterspike will look like in the Robots in Disguise show. While the toy is a straight up redeco of Quillfire the character seems to have more of a different look. Also, we have images of the new packaging for all the rereleased Warrior figures which now sport the Weaponizer subprint. These are the very same figures and the reason why Hasbro can still promote them as being compatible with the weaponizer minicons is because all that is needed to interact with them is a 5 mm port. Hopefully the rereleased Grimlock will fix the problems of the original release.

Hasbro's promoting Scatterspike at the BotCon 2016 panel was an odd one. John Warden hyped the character up as having a twist for us to look forward to in season 2, but Scatterspike never appeared in season 2. Quillfire did, but there wasn't a twist with him either, unless one counts his having gotten his own Mini-Con duo, Back and Forth, but that's not really a twist since practically every Decepticon-of-the-day in Season 2 had their own Mini-Cons.
