Our second review in a row today sees a recently spotted figure from the Transformers: Robots in Disguise line, courtesy of fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999: Hyperchange (Three Step) Steeljaw. Find out below, in the write-up and embedded video, what they thought of the toy!

While the Hyperchange line will never be called the peak of Transformers engineering, Steeljaw is a fine figure and in my opinion the best representation of the character thus far. Transformation is limited to three steps, but due to the magic of automorph a lot happens in those three steps creating a very nice looking robot. Obviously this figure is made for smaller hands but a collector might find enjoyment as a desk toy.

The official Transformers YouTube channel brings us a commercial for the Land Down Under, featuring the Mega Optimus Prime toy from the Transformers: Robots in Disguise line! The big blue/red three-step himself already features in the Seibertron.com galleries, so feel free to compare the multiple angles and shots we offered to the commercial's animation, with the embedded video below.

That's not the "mega" OP. That's the good old 3 steps... Or is it, like, the upscaled version of the 3 steps?

It sure don't look like the Amazing OP coming soon from Takara.

I don't think he meant it that way. It is worth noting that Mega OP has a lot of articulation for a 3-Step Changer. Though it's still only in his arms.

Arent you guys so glad that this is the big Optimus Hasbro gives us while Takara gets this lame one here (pictures below) with articulation, electronics, accessories and actually converts into a workable trailer where you can store your deluxes?

That Takara Optimus with electronics and articulation looks waaaaayyyyyyyyy more show accurate and is much better than the Hasbro Warrior Optimus.

Oh yeah, its Takara leader price. Everyting is in the Takara TAV thread. Sadly, the toy is already sold out from the japanese importer.

Sadface. That's okay. I don't need another Optimus Prime. I could do with a modern update of God Ginrai, but as far as Optimus is concerned, my Robot Masters Convoy is my absolute favourite G1 Prime.

Wal-Marts in Canada have started stocking Wave 3 Transformers Robots In Disguise! We have some shots of Warrior Class Jazz & Sideswipe, and 1-Step Ninja Sideswipe & Night Ops Bumblebee sitting on pegs. Coincidentally, ToysRus is having a sale right now (20% off $29.99 and lower, June 19-25) so start hunting and take advantage of that and Wal-Mart's price matching policy. See the pics below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com: home for the best Galleries and Conversation around!

Naw. Price matching is great and all, but only works while the sale is active. You've no idea how many times I've found something I cold have price matched the day before :-x

If you want overpriced Platinums that even on sale, are still overpriced, you're in luck.

TrU Canada have the insecticon pack at 90$ and the Butterscotch Optimus at "only" 180$.

Also, MP Bluestreak was found in Laval, Quebec! A MP IN QUEBEC!... At moddafokking 90$.

Now that MPs and Platinums are finally in Quebec, they are all overpiced as fok. :roll:
