Fellow Seibertronian Madeus Prime has shared with us a review by YouTuber MightMouse74 of the first instance we've come across of the major antagonist in the Transformers: Robots in Disguise animated series, making their debut in the season finale: Megatronus! The figure is a five-step changer, Toys'R'Us Exclusive and part of the Clash of the Transformers subline, and can be seen in the embedded clip below.

BTW,I wonder whether this is mistransformed.Hopefully it is.


I find fake rake worse than fake windows for this particular toy. I find a Fake rake undermines the creativity of the character's design.

Yeah I pondered it but then remembered that they probably don't actually have it, just the listing, and I'd end up getting another Bumblebee or something.

3-step Thunderhoof again hits my sweet spot. First Optimus, now this guy... Well... Guess I gotta hunt this guy down when he shows up.

They have done that in the past, though not with RiD toys specifically, but that is enough for me to avoid it :)

Also a sign this is a premature listing: the scan code on him is not recognized by the app.

Well that is an odd thing that I didnt mention in the article: this 3 step Thunderhoof wasn't/isn't in the app. I believe that is the very first revealed RID toy since the app came live that didnt first appear there (which makes sense since the whole deal is that every toy would be scan-able). He also wasnt on any preorder listings. He really is out of the blue.

This happened to me. Not with this toy but during HFTD. Basically they have the store staff filling orders and they just grab whatever is on the shelf. Customer Service is a pain too.

I had a similar experience trying to order Generations figures on their website in 2011. They basically tried to fill my order with shelf warming figures at the time. Thankfully I was able to get a full refund. However, I will still find my way to the actual brick and mortar stores to try my luck at what I may find.

Argos website have the minicon deployers....Drift & Fracture! as well as mega Optimus Prime(Smyths Toys have those on their website too).

Weird thing is....the Fracture deployer is his Cybertronian cycle form....While the one step is his earth form

Man, US distribution on this stuff is just not like it is elsewhere. We get no Kre-o (aside from a trickle into discount women's clothing stores), no sign of the TRU exclusives yet, no deployers yet, one wave behind the UK on Warriors, and barely any Minicons out and about. They should rename the line "Transformers: Hey US fans, this is what we always put the UK fans through. Fun, right?"

I can, as you imagine, very much sympathise with you. But from the CW side of things.

From the video reviews of those Deployers I've seen...they're not getting great reviews....so I wouldn't get too disheartened

Also, cause I just caught this: Op, Sides and Bee look pretty cool with the season finale armor. Now if only they had done a slight bit of retooling... :BOT:

Yeah, especially since they spent some extra dollars (quite a bit I would assume) on retooling the 3 steps. That feels like such a waste to me. I dont mind 3 steps, but I dont feel the target audience would take notice of these changes.
