    it's been a while but the official RiD app has released another major update, and this one (while not revealing many new potential toys) is certainly interesting

    Prepare yourselves, for COMBINER FORCE

    [​IMG]

    new characters

    Combiner Bumblebee
    [​IMG]

    Combiner Sideswipe
    [​IMG]

    Combiner Strongarm
    [​IMG]

    Crash Combiner SkyHammer
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Skyhammer appears to not be capable of transforming instead ramming opponents, so I assume none of the crash combiners can

    Crash Combiner BeeSide (Bumblebee + Sideswipe?)
    [​IMG]

    Crash Combiner PrimeStrong (Optimus + Strongarm?)
    [​IMG]

    it appears minicons are going to be replaced by/ renamed Activators at some point in the future

    Activator Stuntwing
    [​IMG]

    Activator Trickout
    [​IMG]

    Activator Great Byte
    (Minicon Sawtooth remould made to be a shark plane?)
    [​IMG]

    Also including Starscream here who was sneakily added to the game a few days after his toy started showing up

    Warrior Starscream
    [​IMG]

    Power Hero Starscream
    [​IMG]

    I think this is everything that was added, but I may have missed one or two things.
    as usual since I don't play this game much I was only able to Unlock Skyhammer to try out, and get more pictures of. hopefully someone with more resources can provide pics of the other new characters/ combinations soon

    so, yeah. interesting times ahead for RiD

    So... Combiner force is a Energon powerlynx homage?

    So they're bringing back the two person combing of Energon? Um okay?

    Also, Skyhammer reminds me of the Technobot Strafe!

    Really? The design kinda reminds me more of Sky Garry.

    It does kind of bring back memories of Energon doesn't it?
    and after having mini-cons as the previous gimmick
    perhaps after Combiner Force we'll be getting the return of Cyber Keys! :p 
    or since they're mimicing part 1 of prime wars, maybe Headmasters are next (Titans Unite?)

    and yeah Skyhammer does have a kind of Strafe vibe.
    although, since he is a Crash Combiner like Beeswipe and Primestrong, that means he is probably actually two characters. what two characters though is a mystery

    Maybe Combiner Force is consist of a Mix of Energon Powerlinx-esque and Traditional Scramble-city styled features.

    Remember that Hasbro could likely continue the CW-Styled ports to perhaps experiment with that.

    This was all rather meh until SHARK-JET!

    After Combiner Wars feeling like it ran the traditional 5-bot gestalt into the ground, it's kinda refreshing to see the old 2-bot version instead (even if it means the main cast yet again, and apparently everyone has Prime's head in combined mode?). I wonder if we can gauge how the whole gimmick works thanks to that back shot of Skyhammer there? But really though, AUTOBOT SHARK BOT WITH A JET FOR A TAIL!

    Let's hope we get some actual Energon homages with the combiner force.
