Everyone remember the Titan Changer line of Robots in Disguise? We saw it as far back as May but only now are they being accessible to North America through Amazon. Chuck grabbed one and got to review it:


chuckdawg1999 wrote:While many people dismiss the Titan figure line as glorified shampoo bottles, the sales of the various figures show their popularity. Expanding upon the 6" and 12" assortments, Hasbro has decided to add a simple transformation to the figures creating Titan Changers. The quality of plastic on Optimus Prime is nice with a metallic, marbleized finish. Transformation is simple but fun, resulting in truck mode that can roll easily. Obviously most adult collectors will pass on this line but for younger fans, or those looking to keep their hands busy, Optimus Prime is a fun figure.

The vehicle mode is much more complete than I expected it to be.
Might look OK with a little more paint it isn't what I want from the brand overall but as an improvement to normal non-transforming Titans it's a good thing.

you know what, I like these simplified toys. I mean, if shelf space is on the line they wont edge anything out but I like them for what they are.

I like how they bring brand awareness to all ages. And plus, I dont know if it is any indication, but the aoe Deluxe figures shelfwarmed way longer than any of the aoe titans.

Just on a side note, I think the reason why they call them "warrior" instead of "deluxe" is because in the dictionary, it says deluxe means "of fine quality, luxurious." The antonyms for "deluxe" are "cheap, basic." "Cheap" and "basic" are what they are called aren't they? I can just imagine them saying "f*** it we'll call em warriors."

My experience is the opposite. They clogged shelves with one steps and deluxes simply could not stay. Of course I assume that the actually got them. Seriously, my Walmart seems to just have a big empty space where the generations and RID warriors are supposed to go. I see warriors every now and then but they are hardly getting restock and generations not at all.

I was talking about aoe and comparing the deluxe class with the titan figures of that line. I never saw the rid titans in stores, did you? Because thats what we are talking about here, the titan non transforming figures, not the one steps.

I have only seen 2 titan non-transforming toys ever in stores, and both were AoE Grimlocks :BOT:

Ah. Yes I saw them in stores but they stayed around a lot longer than the deluxes. But really I think we just didn't get many deluxes. I'd see maybe a single case and that's it. Meanwhile there were stacks of Titans. They sold out eventually but the deluxes were long gone and never replaced.

Joking aside - I can't see any great difference in Quality between a Combiner Wars toy and say RID Jazz they both often have clip on wheels and a similar amount of paint and are the same size.

I think a prime reason they are called Warrior is that they don't come with a comic which adds a couple of bucks or so to the price. and also perhaps with some vague idea that calling them Warrior and Deluxe when they are from 2 different segment will aid the consumer.

But I don't think they put much store in that separation working - as otherwise wouldn't we have potentially seen a Combiner Wars Sideswipe & Jazz if there wasn't both already in the RID segment.

I suppose it's lucky Hasbro didn't rename The Protectobot Blades because of the Rescue Bot toys.

Yup, RAR, you are totally right. Ben from BWTF wrote about his argument against the critiques in his review of warrior class Optimus Prime:

The Warrior Class is still rather new to most fans, and one of the concerns people have had is about "how much" toy you're getting for your money. For comparison, I had "Beast Hunters" Prowl handy so I compared the two. Prowl stands at about 5 inches (roughly 12.7 centimeters) tall and weighs in around 2.8 ounces (79.3 grams). In comparison, Optimus stands at about 5.3 inches (roughly 13.4 centimeters) tall and weighs in around 3.2 ounces (about 90.7 grams). Of course, size and weight will vary figure to figure regardless of the line, but the point of this part of the review is to illustrate how the figure is not necessarily "less" toy than you would've gotten two years ago.

Well it's certainly less paint; and due to the convenience of the animation style, very few molded details; so, yeah, take from it what you will >:oP

New listings for Robots in Disguise products have shown up at toywiz.com.

They are the following:

Transformers 1 Step Changers Quillfire Action Figure
Transformers Robots in Disguise Decepticon Fracture Action Figure Warrior Class
Transformers Robots in Disguise Blizzard Strike Optimus Prime Action Figure Warrior Class
Transformers Robots in Disguise Night Strike Bumblebee Action Figure Warrior Class

None of these had been found in the app and the Night Strike Bumblebee seems to be a different figure than the Night Ops Bumblebee. Still no word on the rumored Warrior Class Quillfire or Thunderhoof, but if ever there is, you will hear all about it on Seibertron.com.

Oh, I was hoping for a deluxe Quillfire. There has been a unfortunate lack of Decepticons in this line. And a warrior Bisk would be awesome.

But whoopee for Fracture!

Wow! A brand-new Quillfire figure? Great! Glad to hear that, because you know, I've been waiting for a long time for this to happen. Hopefully, a Warrior-version of him will be released. Same thing goes for Terrashock, Bisk, Springload. Clampdown and many others! Please don't say that Pseudo won't be getting a figure like Makeshift, because it is likely that he will sometime in the near future. After all Pseudo is a ladybug larvae, and Makeshift is a human. In the cartoon, Makeshift like all other Shifters never had a figure, because his entire body was completely blackened out; whereas Pseudo's body was shown entirely for the very first time. It is also possible that he might re-appear in the cartoon, if Steeljaw releases him along with all of his friends. Therefore, as a result, Pseudo will be likely get a figure and not Makeshift. But we'll just have to wait and see what happens then at this years NYCC. :CON:

Speaking of Toy comparisons I did notice how much taller Animated Jazz was than RID-15 Jazz and also how much heavier Movie Jazz is than most of the other Deluxe Jazz toys are.

I think that Animated toys tend to be unusually tall though often due to the way they Transform.

I don't think there is huge difference between current toys and Prime toys as Prime toys often also had clip on wheels and minimal screws or pins in them. the further back in time you compare your Deluxes (or warriors) the more you notice how they have changed over time.

Or as I've said before now - remember who people used to mock Crossover toys for being a bit S*** well - I think looking at them now in retrospect they often don't look half as bad comparatively speaking they were at least well articulated and well painted.

So another Bee, another Prime, YAY for Fracture, but still no warrior Megatronus or others. Boo, I want the cons to start showing up. I'd really hoped Quillfire was the warrior, and that Megs and Thunderhoof would be there over Prime and Bee. :BOT:

You're also paying for the App, whether or not you use it. Every toy is a character in it, and the game has no "freemium" model (unless I've missed something, which is possible because I've never been inspired to spend money on that app). It's just straight up "free" and the toys are the "freemium" part in this instance.
