We've seen a couple of iterations of the new Robots in Disguise Grimlock already, and very little of newcomer Sideswipe - but why not venture in the still very little realm of Legion class figures for this weekend? Check out below a review of the second wave of the line's figures, courtesy of Seibertron.com member chuckdawg1999.

After the Wave 1 RID Legion figures left me a touch flat, I was hoping that Grimlock and Sideswipe would really wow me. While the paint details and overall design is top notch. They just didn't grab me. Sideswipe is your standard car design but the paint is the same metallic red that was found on Legends Windcharger. Grimlock has an inventive transformation that takes it cues from the Warrior figure, but comes off very stiff. Overall I recommend going for the Wave 2 Warriors before these Legion figures.

The Hasbro Brazil website has listed some new Titan Hero figures. These two new figures are electronic versions of the previously announced Titan Hero Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. These appear to use the exact same mold as those two non-electronic Titan Hero figures. The only visual difference are a series of holes along the figure for the sounds to be heard as well as a mele weapon included with the toy.

Are the eloctronics removable so it can double as a shampoo bottle for bubble baths ?

Pass. Hasbro must be getting semi-decent sales from these things otherwise they wouldn't keep making them. Not for me, thanks. If I buy a glorified shampoo bottle, I actually want shampoo in it.

Why is Optimus smiling on the box art? Man, GTFO with that.

Yes, because a character from a children's cartoon has to be SUPER SERIOUS AND MOODY.

The horse, while not fully decomposed, is very visibly dead. Any attempts at beatings or other violence are unnecessary.

This is Z-Nation. The horse came back from the dead so we beat it so hard its blood started to bleed. ;)

Figured this might help with the weapons storage question

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!

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
