    Originally seen as tiny photos among the Hasbro display at Toy Fair Australia. This is the third One-Step Changer version of Strongarm, version 1 was released in 2014/2015 and version 2 was released last year in "Mini-Con Weaponizers" packaging.

    This is presumably wave 11 of the RID One-Step Changers (at least by my count; Hasbro's official count includes waves without any new toys in them). There was also a loose One-Step Changer Soundwave on display at Toy Fair Australia, who's presumably in the next wave.

    From Japanese importer Red Mercury:

    Heatseeker's art looks like he's a reuse of the Strongarm/Ratchet figure. Which would make sense if they want to reuse assets for future toyd.

    Or he's using a similar transformation scheme. The new 2016 versions of Bumblebee and Sideswipe had swapped their transformations if I recall correctly.

    I hope that Warrior or Legion versions come out for the Bruticus and Galvatronus bots, because none of the toys of them that we know about are doing it for me.

    And before someone comes in to correct me, I do know about Legion Cyclonus, and I am looking forward to him.

    And not to forget a Leader Class RID styled Motormaster. Not Legion/ Scout Class Limbs...

    Is this news then? Should I start a new thread or let the mods handle however they see fit?

    That makes sense. I've only seen the first two episodes of this season and hadn't seen him with that yet.

    Really? I haven't seen any of S3 yet, but isn't he in the first episode?

    He's in the first two, but as far as I recall he only fired missiles while in vehicle mode and did not have that monocle in robot mode at all.
