After the sighting of these Transformers: Robots in Disguise figures was reported here, we have a video review from fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 for the three-step Hyperchange Drift toy, in its show accurate orange deco - also part of the Weaponizer line. Check it out below!

Drift is the latest addition to the Hyper Change sub-line, of chunky over-sized figures, under the Robots In Disguise banner. Transformation is of course easy, but the addition of the Weaponizer gimmick adds an extra level of play value.

What makes it even more perfect is its all being the same guy. Past self and present self fusing into the future self. :lol:

Meanwhile, photobombing Animated Soundwave is just there all like "Hi, Mom!" :P

Some one is keeping the flame alive for the memory of Aaron Archer there.

I have a question on the side: I have the regular retail version of Warrior Class Power Surge Optimus Prime, as much as I love the wing swords (the axe not so much, I may donate it to WFC Prime) he feels incomplete compared to the larger toy due to lack of a proper sword.
Which sword accessory would suit him best? I was looking at the one belonging to Clash 3-Step Optimus Prime:

But the orange really kills it. Any suggestions, preferably in either light blue, grey or black? Even the ones from the Decepticon Island Showdown set will do, but was it even released?

Get the Decepticon Island showdown set. It has plenty of weapons, and it has been sitting in my TRU for 2 months now, so you should be able to find it no sweat

Guess I should, I've been meaning to get more RiD toys now like Windblade, despite passing on Bumblebee and Steeljaw last year. Can anyone post a pic of the sword in Warrior Prime's fist to see how it looks?

I haven't got the set, but I'm pretty certain a Scottp picked up the set

I've seen several Decepticon Island sets on the shelf at my local TRU, and while I'd really like to have the stasis cell and the new weapons, I'd really not like a second Bumblebee and a second Steeljaw, especially when the ones I already have are the Adventure versions.

I feel the same. I want the extras, but I have a steeljaw and a supreme Bee, so I don't want the 2 figures, which are the bulk of the price.

Anyone else finding their local Walmarts not carrying Warrior class anymore? Both of the Walmarts that I frequent have dropped them completely. I don't know what happened to them, they had a bunch of them about a month ago, but now they're just gone, not in the clearance aisle or anything, and no peg space with the other Transformers. Really strange thing to do, especially this time of year.

That is strange. That can't be right.
I'll check next time I hit a Walmart.

Mine has had about the same 3 guys for a month now. Maybe they'll restock on Thanksgiving or Black Friday
