Fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 brings us our first proper look at the second wave of Transformers: Robots in Disguise One-Step changers - and actually sounds quite positive about the new version of Steeljaw and Grimlock, plus the first toy we have of new character Fixit. Check out the embedded clip below for more!

While many collectors pass on these toys due to their simplistic nature, I think they're missing out on some fantastic engineering. There are three figures in this wave and each one features its own, unique transformation. I think most people will go for Fixit since that's the new, kid friendly character, but Grimlock and even Steeljaw have something to offer.

Do they ask to play with your G1 toys? ;)

Well, my youngest is 1, so he is still safe. My 2 year old, however, is not. My G1 figures are kept out of sight in my toy room, so he doesn't see them. My masterpieces are on display, and those he wants. Hence why I've started giving him armada toys to play with.


That's cute! I'll be a dad this summer, hence all my questions. Looking forward to that stage.

Congrats man! Fatherhood is the single greatest and most rewarding journy a man can take. No feeling on earth compares to your child looking up and smiling at you. You'll find the kids laughter to be the sweetest music you've ever heard. That first time you gaze on your newborns face, you'll finally start to understand the true meaning of life.

That said, get as much sleep as you can now. Trust me on this. ;)

Picked up both Fixit and Steeljaw yesterday. Fixit is ok, at least for now, since it has one of those "click to lock" transformations, which will probably strip out after a while. Steeljaw is complete piece of sh*t. The thing is loose and unstable from the get-go, and its transformation leaves it with a giant panel just sticking out of its backside. They want us to pay $10 a pop for this lazy bullsh*t?

I will be picking up Drift, after that, no more one steps. They increase the price 20%, and give us retools of used molds and the new ones are either sh*t from the get go or a disaster waiting to happen......

I'm to old to be even looking at Transformers like this let alone replying in a forum about them. ;)

The NY Toy Fair 2015 gave us a first look at Robots in Disguise One Step Drift Fracture and Thunderhoof, and we were even given official images from Hasbro in conjunction with the event. However, through Hasbro Poland, we now have the new official images of these toys. These images show some different coloring, different angles and different ways to display the figures (especially Thunderhoof). They have been mirrored below.

I really do hope we can get a deluxe class version of Thunderhoof sometime soon, instead of less detailed and complex stuff like the one step changers.

And I really hope that when they do make that figure, his alt mode rake becomes his robot mode antlers.

I do hope we can get a warrior class Thunderhoof but i'm just happy to get a toy of him at all! The 1 step doesn't look too bad at all, he seems to have basic articulation.

In general, I wish for more Cons at warrior scale. Given what I've seen of Underbite and Steeljaw, it feels like the Cons are going to be fun this time around, plus it'd be nice if they were counted in even number with the Bots.

Still, more Con representation so far than the entire AoE line.

If every Con gets a Warrior toy, then they will definitely outnumber the Autobots this time around. 8)

Not yet. So far, in the deluxe class and voyager class (and corresponding warrior and hyperchange class), we only have steeljaw (unless you also count fracture as minicon deployer) while AOE had both Lockdown and Galvatron.

And for the one steps, while RID has 4 cons so far, AOE did have Megatron, Galvatron, Lockdown , Stinger (walmart exclusive) and now has Junkheap and Vehicon as power battlers.

I'm getting a ROTF Scattorshot vibe from Thunderhoof, a Flamewar vibe from Fracture, and Drift looks absolutely ridiculous. (PlaySkool gone wrong ridiculous.)

fracture looks pretty good, wasnt expecting that at all. Ill wait until there are some in hand pics out there before i decide if im going to buy him or not, still feel these are overpriced at $10.

It occurs to me, I bet you could make a decent deluxe Thunderhoof with Generations Scoop and a little modding with a dollar store tractor.

How would you get his antlers on his head though?

You don't, but the shoulders and chest sorta look right. I was gonna dsay the same thing. Just put his rake on rthe end of Scoop's bucket arm. If that's what it takes to get a decent Genrations quality Thunderhoof, I really don't care about his antlers that much.

And actually, I think there's enough flext in the bucket arm, one might be able to mod a clip into the back of the Robot head so the bucket snaps in. You lose neck articulation though, unless you make it a seperate piece, but I don't think anyone wants that.

EDIT: Dagonit, I fogotabout Scoop's huge front gap... I wonder if you coukd do him backwards?

Picked up Warrior Steeljaw. He suffers from the same "elbows feel like their gonna break" syndrome that Grimlock has, but I gotta say, I really enjoy playing with him.
These toys have a lot of flaws, i.e. price, lack of paint apps, non locking panels, fragility, but I can't help but like them. The character design is so new and different, that I feel they make up for their flaws in style alone.
I don't recall anybody mentioning Steeljaw's cool segmented and ball jointed tail. It's a really neat feature.

Just keeping my cup half full y'all. :D
