Along with the first US sightings of the Transformers: Robots in Disguise Combiner Force figures, two Seibertronians have sent along their reviews of two new figures from the line! First up, Scottimus Prime with frog-like Decepticon Springload.



And next, chuckdawg1999 with fellow Legion class wavemate Starscream.

Starscream is our first look at the Combiner Force sub-line of RID, a scaled down version of the previously released warrior class figure. Transformation is fun, and I'm impressed with how solid the jet mode is. Definitely worth a pick up.

I really need that Springload. It is an awesome little legion

Wait... imagine: a hoard of Springloads rising against the Autobots like one of those 12 plagues of biblical proportions! Almost like Shajaki's Sweeps!

I can't STAND that. Takes me from zero to PO'd in less than a second.

Me neither, just wave 1 and 2... still. Makes me really sad


Don't even get me started on that. I guess the previous minicons didn't sell well and stores aren't carrying the newer waves.

The official Transformers Facebook page has shared a new video, and we get our first full-on look at the upcoming warrior class Transformers: Robots in Disguise Soundwave figure! As the clip says, the toy takes several generations of Decepticon communications officer design tips, from Transformers: Prime to G1, via recent RID incarnations and War for Cybertron/Fall of Cybertron cues. Check it out below!

Weird how there's no sound for the video.

I like the boxart, but the fact TFP Soundwave now has a faceplate gives an extremely different feel to his character.

It's weird how they completely exclude Cybertron and Animated Soundwave as if they seem to have never existed. And this irritates me.

Yeah...what's up with the faceplate on the artwork? It's more logical that the show model would use the Prime Soundwave head that's on the toy.

Eh, screw it, the toy looks amazing. I'm sure Takara will show it up, but I don't care. For once, Hasbro dun gud. Now let's see that Blurr.

They skipped the film version too. They skipped every incarnation. It's just the oldest Soundwave vs. the newest Soundwave.

Watch them go show-accurate by painting a faceplate on which ends up looking as good as when they used paint to 'remove' CW/UW Drag Strip's slit teardrop eyes.

I really don't think the box art is automatically indicative of how Soundwave will look in the cartoon. Remember how wildly unlike the cartoon model Steeljaw's box art was?

Fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 was lucky enough to get ahold of the latest Robots in Disguise warriors, and was nice enough to share with us his review for new Autobot Stormshot! Stormshot is an all new mold which is heavily based on a combiner wars Aerialbot mold, minus only the combiner port and featuring a tighter backpack, and features a pretty good paint job of red, white, and blue. Stormshot is schedule for release along with wavemates Drift and Blastwave at the very beginning of 2017, so stay tuned for those guys to start showing up in stores!

chuckdawg1999 wrote:Stormshot is the first Warrior Class figure I was able to get from the Combiner Force sub-line of RID. Robot mode is very cool looking, with a nice red, white, and blue color scheme. Transformation is satisfying, although I'm concerned about stress marks on some ports. Overall, Stormshot just might be my favorite figure from RID thus far.

Boy, they sure are getting their mileage out of that leg transformation.
He looks good though. Simple and fun. Dig his robot mode.

i have that issue to. For mine, his left claw does not like staying tabbed in.

Same for me, same goes for the blue :CON: from wave 3 of tr, I don't even know how to fix the problems either :HEADHURTS:

So I kinda have a fix for this issue; transform the arm that's giving you trouble alone, then close the hood on that half, then combine the hood parts and then transform the arm that doesn't give you trouble, and that should work out better, although it's not perfect.

It's a shame this guy is so simple when RiD's transformations were getting pretty impressive. The wing/cockpit section is pretty unique tho.

Still, it's a great looking figure and it's much better disguised than your normal Aerialbot thanks to the hands tucking in and the shoulders looking like fuselage.
