Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff?

The Hobbybase facebook page has posted a couple of images of Transformers Prime "RID" Deluxe Wave 3. This wave consist of Wave 2's Arcee and Ratchet, and adds Hot Shot, Knock Out, and Vehicon to the mix. Hopefully this wave will be hitting domestic retail soon. Images mirrored below.
Update: We now have a load of additional images from HK-TF, including some nice comparison and group shots.
I'm really loving all three new guys. It still looks like you can fold back those grill pieces on Knock Out, but I do like him, and the matte maroon on the brighter shiny red looks kind of neat to me, and I hope they do more texture work with paint in the future. Vehicon looks proper evil, although I feel he'll be a little too hard to come by to form a good army, and though I hate the RID Bee mold, Hot Shot's differences pull it off flawlessly to me. I just hope they fixed that automorph gimmick to be a bit more stable.
I just got Ratchet and am about to open him, but I didn't really want the Arcee. I've traded my FE Arcee for a huge lot of figures to a friend of mine because I'm none too fond of her either. I just think they could have done SOMETHING about the backpack.
I sure hope so, but I might just do some paint on KO. He looks so good! Also, even though Hasbro is sort of lax on paint apps, I think they are starting to learn to put them in the right places even if there isn't a lot of them.
