    UK member Max Tower has reported listings on The Entertainer toy store website. United Kingdom Transformers Sightings

    These appear, as far as i know, to be not previously revealed toys.

    Yet more versions of the Robot in Disguise characters. Drift, Bumblebee, Optimus Prime

    The figures honestly look like crap.

    Hmmm, most stores I go to seem to never stock these pieces of crap (or any Transformers for that matter) but then again I'm not really paying attention to stuff that don't interest me.

    For those who want to know which wave this is... well, that's gotten awfully confusing.

    If you only count waves that actually contain new figures (and not just existing figures in different combinations), it's wave 9.
    Hasbro's official wave numbering is presumably going to be "wave 11".
    Hasbro's alternate designation is probably going to be "AS0H".
    Other people might call it "2017 wave 1".

    All of these are valid.

    Bumblebee, just a remold, Drift, another remold of a figure they\'ve done too often now. But that Optimus Prime, I feel I should hate it, but for some reason, I kind of like it.

    I doubt anyone on these forums collects these one-step pieces of scrap... They are for little kids and honestly, not sure why Hasbro still continues to make them when they only clutter the shelves everywhere. Tesco still had AoE one-steps on the shelves, even... 2 years after the movie came out.

    I get that these are for little kids...really little kids...but these really do look ugly. The previous one-steps looked okay for their age bracket, but this just does not.

    Meanwhile the Warriors are pretty fantastic at the moment actually. Ever since they ditched the beast/robot hybrids its been pretty amazing actually. I just wish Starscream would show up in Australia; he's next on my list.

    -Remember Animated Activators? They were one-step transformations and were awesome!
    -Remember RiD (the good one) basics with the one-step transformations? They too were awesome.
    -Remember Jump-Starters with their super simple one-step transformations? They weren't awesome, but still leagues better than these.

    I have several one-steps, my son loves playing with them along side Generations and Warriors. I'll never quite understand why so many adult collectors disagree with these co-existing on store shelves.

    I think one-steps are great for those kids who are into acting out the stories with their Transformers. In the shows and movies the characters transform in a matter of seconds and these one-steps allow for kids to have their toys transform just as quickly.

    I don't mind, they're good for little kids but really. In a collection they look crap.

    These toys aren't for us. That's fine. I just think that these new ones look especially bad and that kids deserve better. If they're too young get them rescue bots. Anything higher than seven, they're old enough to have a deluxe.

    EDIT: I meant rescue bots at the moment. One-steps are usually fine for them.

    I started buying them when they were £5.00 each - Some of them have some interest to them like The IDW style Prowl or ROTF style Megatron
    I kinda like Steeljaw and the Drift Helicopter too. Some of the Dinobots are fine too - I'd never pay £10.99 for them though.

    But they are something fun to pick up in the supermarket when they can't be bothered to stock the more elaborate toys. they kinda remind me of the 1980's small sub-groups too like the the Triggerbots & Sparkabots in terms of their relative simplicity... not that some of them are that simple really some of them are quite convoluted and full of hinges and scissor joints.

    I might have ignored them if I'd had more options available but I don't so I didn't..
    I expect there will be even more of them into 2017 with The last Knight ones being likely to outstay their welcome a bit too. (If hasbro makes them). Personally I'd rather have TLK legion class.
