Video reviews for the newly released and spotted Transformers: Robots in Disguise figures are obviously coming in like a flood, and the next one we have lined up for you is Hyperchange Grimlock - thanks to fellow Seibertronian BCPrimal!

Here's a look at the new Hyper Change Grimlock from the new Transformers RID line. Grimlock transforms in 3 steps and has very limited articulation. The detail and paint job is very well done and younger kids will love this Grimlock. Please rate, comment and subscribe!

That's one original transformation for that big Grimlock. Sure, he's a brick, but a FUN brick. I may pick him up if the price is right.

I would recommend to watch this for his opinon on underbite. It seems the one reviewed before where underbite did not lock in was a factory error.

Covenant of Primus doesn't hurt anything, but it doesn't really fix anything either. Additionally, the aligned Universe already -has- a Grimlock - the same one you see in FoC got an official comic series. Like, quite a decent run (I think 12 issues or so if you count all three minis). This Grimlock is nothing like that, unless they retcon it to an insane degree.
You know what the really sad thing is? Mairghread Scott was both a writer for TF: Prime and one of the main writers for both the Rage of the Dinobots comics and the Prime Beast Hunters comics that each worked their darnedest to mend as much continuity patch ups as possible between WFC/FOC and Prime... and yet she's also gonna be a writer for RID, in which we have this new Grimlock, after all her efforts to not only flesh out and develop the one from WFC/FOC but also implant it into the world of the Prime cartoon in as believable and feasible as possible. All that work she did to make things work, and then they go and give us a brand new take on Grimlock that completely poops all over her fine work.

But... then again... as it's a few years between Prime and RID, this could either be a whole new guy who happens to have the same name as the old Grimlock, or it's the old Grimlock having been fully brainwashed or something. I dunno, I just pray that there's some explanation. It's all "wait and see" at this point.

ScottyP wrote:Last we saw of the already established FoC Grimlock, he was on Cybertron fighting Predacons with the other Dinobots helping rebuild the planet, and Ultra Magnus had just left them to go join Team Prime on Earth.
That was in Rage of the Dinobots. The last we saw of FOC Grimlock was in the Prime Beast Hunters comics, in which he did a lot on Cybertron and eventually reunited with Team Prime in a post-Predacons Rising scene and went to help build the Cybertron settlement New Spark.

ScottyP wrote:Back to the toys, I am seriously impressed by Hasbro right now on distribution. The last two movie lines of toys over stayed their welcome on shelves and were way overproduced. It seems like they were ready for retailers to run out of movie stuff over the busy holiday season, and were prepared at the distributor level to replenish them with new product lines instead of more of the old. Good stuff, and hopefully this means Combiner Wars is just on the horizon here in the US!
I concur. This is the shortest movie line of the four and it managed to get just about everything on the market it set out to release. And right as the next line's toys are ready to come out, this movie's line isn't keeping them held back this time. Kudos. :D

Sorry to those who already saw this pic elsewhere but I wanted to share it with those who had not seen it yet.

I dont think I need a new green t-rex grimlock, I will stick with the one I already have.

Can understand taking away the complex transformations, so more younger kids can transform the toys. Taking away articulation just seems like a cost cutting budget thing.

More or less. Especially for those bigger toys who will sell for 20-25$ instead of 30$. Articulations make the transformation more complicated because setting the limbs a certain way add one or several more transformation steps.

Just a side note: any one else notice that the name is "Robots In Disguise" and the idea is Bumblebee wasnts his team to be in hiding...yet NONE of them look like Earth cars?

They still look like cars, that's all that matters. Do you honestly expect any alien-looking car to transform into a robot? :P

Fellow Seibertronian Lockdownhunter has pointed out that Balmatrix's RID one step changers review covers the entire wave one release, including Strongarm and Bumblebee. It should be noted that unlike what was first shown in an earlier review, Underbite's "robot mode" does lock in.



Hopefully this review along with our galleries can give you a good idea of what this line has to offer. Check back throughout the week for more galleries covering wave one!

Toysrus.com now has the Robots in Disguise One Step Changers Wave One in stock at 9.99$ a piece. Bumblebee, Underbite, Sideswipe and Strongarm are available. Although the listing does call them warriors, this is not in reference to their toy class.

Make sure to check back often as we will be updating our Robots in Disguise 2015 gallery page with more toys from wave one all week.

Thought it may be note worthy from a distribution standpoint,
I saw these RID One Step Changers at a TRU in Council Bluffs, Iowa this past Friday.
I did not purchase any , as they don't necessarily "float my boat", but it seems we will be seeing this line widespread sooner than later.

This is where the suspension of disbelief comes in, obviously for copyright reasons they can't make the toys look 100% accurate to earth vehicles.

IJK Productions is a fellow fan who uses his YouTube channel to review Transformers and he's shared his review of Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Strongarm with us. Is she as good as Grimlock or even better? Only way to know is by watching the embed below!

AWESOME!!!!! I mean your review of course :) Strongarm is OK but nothing really super awesome about her :(
We all miss the FE line.While simplifying may be good, it kinda degrades the standard of the toys.But to all TF Fans(especially G1-ners) do not worry,be happy!You still have 3rd party toys,MPs ,and Combiner Wars.

Oh,by the way,why is the caption picture still the same?

Just take the "no" part.Steeljaw is awesome in cartoon.In toy form,he is OK and my second favourite after Green Grimlock.
