News Post: First Look At Simba Smoby 2017 RID Die-Cast Vehicle 2-Packs
Are the bot modes diecast too or just the cars?
No info on that. I'll see if I can find out.
I'm definitely getting that Orange Samurai with mustache. You get my Drift?
Strongarm seriously needs paint in bot mode, even more than Drift does.
Nice idea. They could definitely use some extra paint though.
Drift looks decent and Strongarm looks naked.
What is it with RiD toys having non-existent paint apps?
No transform? No buy
Neat, but not a fan of faction symbols on wheels.
I was excited for Strongarm when I saw the Drift looked pretty good but then I saw her and OOF. You don\'t have to make her transform so you can spare a few more paint apps c\'mon guys.
It's not just RID. It's been an ongoing trend with figures for years. If you compare the deluxe Bumblebee from every movie line, for example, you can see the paint apps becoming less and less. Though as this is licensed third party and non-transforming, you'd hope for more.
How big are the figures supposed to be, legend size, deluxe size, somewhere in between or smaller?
After making KO transformers in the 90ies... Simba will finally make the real thing?
The Planet Fighter series? I had one too. They weren't really knock offs. Just inspired. Simba even had a line called "My Sweet Pony".
However, after the merger of Simba Toys and Dickie Group things went more official.
So if they\'re 2 pack, 1 is in bot mode and 1 car mode? They don\'t transform?
True. A bot mode figure + a vehicle mode diecast vehicle. They don't transform.
