I do want Heatseeker. He seems pretty cool an I'm not really sure yet if I will get the Galvatronus combiner with him

I am still amazed that Hasbro or Takaratomy hasn't rereleased the BH predacons as RID decepticons as toy only characters to fill out the ranks on the toys and make a quick buck without making new molds

Activators Soundwave looks surprisingly awesome! He just might be the first gimmick-former I add to my collection!

So...

A blue SUV Decepticon with limited articulation due to being based around a gimmick; said gimmick being flip-out weaponry that's mounted on the back of the vehicle mode and on either side of the head in robot mode.

Any word on if anyone on Shapeways is making a replacement Crankcase head? :lol:

We have a first sighting for you all, of Legion Blurr in the US. It was found at Meijer in Indianapolis for $5.99 by TF fan Flexx Art. Blurr is part of the second wave of the Combiner Force subline which makes it the 9th wave of Legion figures in Robots in Disguise. None of the other legions he is packed with are new since they are rereleases of Optimus Prime, Bisk and Bumblebee. All are evenly packed in the case.

If you wanted a G1 Blurr, there's the Titans Return/Takara Legends one.

Odd, I wonder why. Seems like they have a Leader Jetfire and Titan Metroplex though.

Hey all, I had a couple questions:
1. I noticed a $15 deluxe combiner force skywarp on HTS that looks like the RiD deluxe starscream from last year. Is there any difference given the Combiner force branding?
2. Will there be a thundercracker version?

Thanks.

1. Its the same toy as starscream but in different colours.
2. There is no word of an upcoming Thundercracker


On another note, dont you guys think it would have been cooler if that starscream mold stayed as just starscream and they instead made the accompanying seekers from the Stormshot mold? Because that Starscream has the cape effect that only he ever had while the storm shot mold has the wings displayed in perfect seeker fashion.

Seibertronian reviewer Chuckdawg1999 is at it once again, this time bringing us a review of the newly released Activators Sideswipe with Great Byte! Sideswipe is a new mold that, when combined with Great Byte, activates his Stealth-Force-esque vehicle mode, which sort of resembles an Indy car. Greaty Byte meanwhile transforms from bomb/plane/thingy into robot mode and functions as a booster for Sideswipe. Check them out below, along with Chuckdawgs thoughts!

chuckdawg1999 wrote:This is a cool set. Sideswipe is a great version of the RID character, with some sweet tech detail that's shown in its combined form with Great Byte. Speaking of the minicon, Great Byte makes a cool looking blaster and a unique melee weapon. I think it looks like a pick-ax. Most fans will pass this and the other Activators up, but they're fun toys for the price.

We reported a Robots in Diguise 15 pack of Mini-cons a while back which we thought would only be available in China, but mainly because it wasn't being sold anywhere else. Until now. The set of 15 Mini-cons was found this week in Kerrison Toys in Great Yarmouth, UK, for £39.99. These were found by TFW2005 user Gingerchris. These are slight redecos of molds that have already been released.

Well, if they'd actually go forth in making a toy for Forth, they wouldn't have to keep going back to Back's toys.

Ooh, windstrike looks cool. Were they released individually?

That is an odd mix of items that were packed in with larger robots, that were in the previous gift sets or released individually.

It's nice that they have as little more paint though.
