Fellow Seibertronian ChuckDawg1999 has reviewed the latest One Step Bumblebee found under the Combiner Force subline of Robots in Disguise.

Here are his thoughts on it:
chuckdawg1999 wrote:As someone who collects One-Step changers I know, there's been a lot of Bumblebees, a lot. This version from the Combiner Force subline is different, the Transformation is fun and the robot mode feels solid. If you're looking for a fun desk toy then definitely give Bumblebee a look.

I saw somewhere on Twitter that the combiner sets are to be sold at the $29.99 price point, so the size works out, along with the simplicity. Really excited for these sets!

Sorry if I missed it, but did we get any info on the size of the combiners?

realize I could go look at pics, so I will. :-P

Considering the Crash combiners about deluxe size, the 4/5 bot combiners appear to be about voyager height, but very bulky

By "Deluxe" do you mean Legends/Scout? :-?

Edit: I see what you are saying. Combined the Crashers are deluxe size. I see it now. :D

More like 'deluxe height'. Primestrong is about the height of my other deluxes present

Roughly voyager size. You can see them next to the activators, which are deluxe sized bots:

And man, am I the only one marvelling at this render. That truck mode just looks so stylish!

Yeah D, I see what you meant (edited last post to agree ;) )

and no Billy, you aren't the only one.

The trick to these is to keep expectations low, hope for the best, and except them for what they are. Primestrong is neat and fun, but I still think the price point is to high for what you get.

Will, I love how that Motormaster truck makes for such broad shoulders on Menasor. Wide, silver, and mean!

Do you guys think the samples shown are hand painted? They appear to have some nice apps. Hope the production runs look that good.

Given the sheer amount of hand-painting at the show, I'd be unable to say either way for these figures specifically. Maybe megatronus or Seibertron will have a better idea. :-?

I wish they would look that good as the retail releases. that silver on Motormaster/Menasor is incredibly nice

So I suppose these dudes would best scale with Legions?

I know I know it's not all about scale lol, I'm just wondering how Ultrabee would look together with say, Legion Windblade and Ratchet and the scout-sized Mini-con pack thing Optimus :-?

Yeah I think they will scale rather well with those minicon 2 pack figures

Just curious, has the Combiner Force One-Step Blurr been sighted in US Retail by anyone else yet? 'Cause I kinda found one and I didn't expect them to be on shelves yet. :???:

RiD figures need more paint apps. I feel like I have been saying this since the first wave of toys though. :roll:

I suppose reprolables can help. I only have 2 figs I wanna label up so I'll wait till I decide on more to make shipping worth it.

Did anyone else notice the arms and legs of Menasor are actually the same mold each with different robot parts, much like Galvatronus?
