Thanks to the McDonalds Happy Meal Toys site we now have a look at the upcoming "Robots in Disguise" Happy Meal toys! These will feature Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Thunderhoof and Steeljaw. Each character will be featured in each of their modes (so four characters, eight toys). The main gimmick appears to be launching projectiles. So get ready, starting next week the hunt is on!

Toy Review: "Combiner Wars" Swindle
