The Transformers Robots in Disguise One-Step Changers Advanced Optimus Prime and Strongarm have been popping up in stores in the US. If any of you are mildly interested in knowing what is new or different about this One Step Optimus Prime toy, compared to the previous Target Exclusive one, we have a review for you below courtesy of Chuckdawg1999. To compare and contrast, we also have the review for last year's Optimus Prime One Step toy which is still only obtainable by buying the target exclusive set of Robots in Disguise One Step figures.

Please note that the reviewer does mistaken the two figures, which are indeed different molds entirely, but these videos still serve as a great way to see the toys and how they may compare.

There are no connectors in the US. Only the Takara versions have connectors. You cant connect the US ones to any warrior figure.

So, the Takara minicons have the unicron trilogy connectors? Or are you telling that the Takara RID '15 figures have special connectors that will use whatever holes happen to be in a RID minicon?



this will anwer your question http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/ ... ity/35198/

Oh, so they are just standard 5mm pegs added on the Takara minicons. Thanks! For what I want to do, I guess I'll have to import some.

The balls and torpedoes can actually peg onto deployer overload's shoulders, if that interests you :MAXIMAL:

I thought so but I don't want to buy that toy twice. Instead, I ordered the TAV44 Sideswipe and Bumblebee with minicons 4 pack.

The Takara minicons have a 5mm peg added and will be perfect for the custom I wanna make. Plus, the figures themselves seem nice. Especially Sideswipe, who seem better than his deluxe counterpart.

Could this custom be of the Hook, Line, and Sinker persuasion :-?

Like, I'm waiting for Ransack, Glacius, Swelter and Back to complete the minicons that showed up in the show, and they are all single releases that have yet to be seen pretty much anywhere. I decided to use weapon slipstream as Jetstorm and I think I can get Airazor fairly cheap, so its those 4. Grr :MAXIMAL:

Man its true, we didnt even get those. I just want all the weapon minicons, like right now :cry: I at least hope those 2 waves will show up at the same time like the first two did last year.

Me too. We're in that point where nothing new is coming to stores for at least another month, so I'm eager to get minicons, and ones that were on the show to finish out the bunch (and I do love the minis). After I finish off the show bunch then the weapon guys can come :MAXIMAL:

Had to take my laptop in for repairs so I decided to drop in the local Asda to see if there were any Generations Legends I could pick up. There weren't because the UK doesn't know what a "distribution of Transformers" is, but there were some RID 2015 minicons and legends. One of the ones there was Dragonus who I was wanting for a while so I was like screw it, let's get this guy.

Gotta be honest... Kinda disappointed. He is cute and I kind of adore the torpedo mode all weaponed up - looks like it came straight out of mad max - but he... Just doesn't do anything. No articulation of course outside the head waggling a little bit, and the purple translucent things are just kind of on him. I do like him, but not enough to make me not disappointed in dropping £6.50 on him or not getting legends Fixit over him. I mean, cmon, this guy cost me the same as Legends Groove. You can't tell me he's worth even half a legends groove.

So... Yeah. Bit sad because this was my first RID 2015 toy as well as my first time buying in-store since I was a kid. But hey, I have him and there's no going back now, and I kinda like him for what he is. Just wish he was better.

If you can, go back and get that Fixit. That thing is the bomb digity of the legion/minicon line. He will make up for Dragonus, though the minicons are by no means bad, just more cute than functional :MAXIMAL:

Aye, I've heard that right enough. Kinda gutted I didn't pick him up tbh; maybe I'll do that when also picking up my laptop.

Also since this is my first time on the thread (hi guys), scrolled up a bit and saw that the minicons aren't sighted anywhere? At Asda I saw Dragonus (duh), Divebomb, Back, Slipstream and... uh... Blizzard Strike Slipstream, lol. Also saw legion Strongarn patrol mode.

Now I'm not sure if I got an older version lol. I'm not up to snuff on the RiD toys; can I get a rundown on the differences so I don't look like an idiot?

If you saw Back and blizzard slipstream, that is awesome considering those waves are the ones Will and I have waited anxiously for and have yet to show up anywhere! Waves 1 and 2 (which regular Slipstream, Divebomb and Dragonus (nonweapon mode)) have been around a while with no signs of waves 3 and beyond save the 4-packs, so this is good stuff :MAXIMAL:
