We've seen the galleries already, but in an amusing turn of events the Seibertron.com store sold one to fellow user chuckdawg1999 - who has shared a video review with us, coming full circle!

Hyperchange Optimus Prime is a fun figure, existing as a halfway point between One-Step Changers and Power Battlers. The figure while simple is dense and solid with plastic, giving it a heft that I've missed over the last few years. One flaw is the size doesn't make it optimal for desk toy status, but that shouldn't detract you from seeking this rolling power of awesomeness out!

This has already been featured, but thanks: http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/ ... ial/32125/ :D


Moving to RID thread.


That was a new commercial. The previously released commercial did not have finished audio and did not mention the warrior class transformers.

I believe he's called Fracture and transforms into a motorbike. Instead of being an animal-con like the rest he comes with two animals Mini-Cons in the show. The disc is one of Drift's Mini-Cons I think

And TF:RID continuity gets murkier.....Slipstream was already well established to be a female seeker in the WFC/Prime/Aligned continuity....now Slipstream is a male Autobot minicon? :BANG_HEAD:

In-continuity namesakes become extremely common when Mini-Cons come into play. Look at Armada, Energon, Cybertron and especially within the Mini-Con Groups themselves.

At this point, I'm going to say that the only internal consistency with TF:RID is strictly with the TF:Prime cartoon and NOTHING else. No comics, video games, packaging bios, pack-in stories, or ANYTHING ELSE ancillary to the TF:Prime cartoon, even if otherwise regarded as official or cannon stories. At best, I think the "aligned continuity" is proving just to be another continuity family with several different flavors involved (WfC/FoC games, versus novelizations, versus cartoon, versus toy fiction, versus whatever else). At worst, I think Hasbro just doesn't care, and spent a whole lot of time, energy, and money rebooting their Transformers brand continuity for the modern age to simply give up on it and not care a scant few years later. Long story short, don't try to make sense of any of it. Continuity only works for the aligned universe if you isolate the stories by media outlet (videogames, books, shows, etc.). Across media, the fiction doesn't complement itself.

To me, the WFC/FOC games are as linked to the Aligned continuity presented in Prime as the Marvel comics were linked to the G1 continuity presented in the show.

It's stories using the same characters and backstories but not necessarily linked to eachother more than that.

I agree, but there's one problem. In TF:Prime, Unit E was set up specifically to deal with Decepticon threats on Earth. I believe a prison ship crashing on Earth would be exactly what they're meant to deal with. But instead, the TF:RID allies are a dad and his kid who run a junkyard?

They'd better explain that awful quick when the series starts.

Hoping that the Rid Minicon deployers bigger figures are Voyager class and are fully articulated. If they are, Then I plan to buy Fracture. The skeptic in me thinks The bigger figures are only Deluxe class toys.

Have plans to buy that Three step Transformation Voyager class Steeljaw toy. Think the character design from the Deluxe toy will translate nicely into a Three step Voyager toy.

Probably going to be picking up a few minicons. Especially the ones named after the 1986 Predacons. Just hoping they look like the characters.

Still on the fence whether I want to buy the Warrior Deluxe class Steeljaw toy or not. Might be tempted to buy a black Repaint called Ravage. Think if Hasbro doesn't do it, TFCC will.
