Robots in Disguise

In 2001 Hasbro released "Robots in Disguise". This toy line was largely comprised of figures from the Japanese "Car Robots" toy line with some deco differences. Later redecos of other figures would be added into the line to add some variety. The entries below are based on the listings on the TFWiki page.
