While initial reception on the new Robots in Disguise toyline was lukewarm, it really seems to have found it's footing and the mincons' welcome return into the fiction and toyline (albeit reinvented) is a big help. Seibertron was lucky to get the new four pack in and take some prelminary pictures of them in their box. We had perviously only seen 3d toy models so this gives us a better idea of the deco and detail. This set (W1 341148) includes Backtrack, Swelter, Beastbox ad Scorch Strike. Enjoy!

I'm still waiting on those individual releases of Jetstorm and Airazor so I can have my show minicons, but these don't look too bad at all. Also can't wait for the minicon weapons :BOT:

Didn't realize a new thread for RID toys had been started.

FYI peeps, the minicon battle packs are in stock at Entertainment Earth. Keep in mind they're very, very expensive.

Here

and

$34 does seem a little pricey, but with no scale for reference, I guess I can't really say that... yeah, no, they want $120 for a set of deluxe limbs, no way I'm buying anything from them >:oP

Entertainment Earth is strange with prices. I was going to get the wave 2 combiner wars limbs from them for $54.99, but then HTS got them in stock and with a 25% discount, so I went there instead. I also got the wave 3 limbs from there for $50.00 even, so I got good prices. It's just some are weird and I feel like there is a price difference depending on something I don't know about, such as me getting wave 3 at $12.50 individuals, but the whole set had 2 prices: one at $64.99 and another at $119.99. They're weird, but you can score, just maybe not here :BOT:

Those prices don't surprise me. I bet they are priced to fit in the "Deluxe" price point.
Legends (Commander)=$10
Minicon + armor = $3 to $5

I had more been thinking $29.99 for the same reasons, minicons being $5 and commanders being $10. maybe even a smidge cheaper being they are a set, but oh well. these are more prices I would see BBTS having. :BOT:

I dont get it chuck, these are the same kind of prices we have seen all year.

I think you even get more out of this than a deluxe since you get 2 transforming figures plus armour which can merge into a weapon. The deluxe grimlock didnt even have a weapon.

I think Chuck was just saying that Entertainment Earth is an expensive place to buy things so their price may not be reflective of what the same item would cost in Target or Walmart.

I appreciate the "Commander" class RID items even is some of them are a little redundant - I would be doing what I have to do with the Legends/Basic class and split them into two collections.

For example Optimus/Starscream/Megatron/Acid Storm/Thundercracker/Optimus/Skywarp would be used as "larger" toys and apired with the likes of Legion/Legends class toys from some years ago like : Hound, Bumblebee, Beachcomber.

Where as : Groove, Warpath, Bumblebee, Gears, Swerve, Tailgate, Windcharger, Huffer, Pipes, Viper, Cosmos, & Powerglide fit into the Minibot scale when taken with a Deluxe... those would for exmple Go OK with Jet Bomber Megatron & Orion Pax.

Rodimus, Scrapnel & Bombshell can be either or.

So the same idea with RID-15/16 would be that Optimus & Grimlock would be leadership characters paired with Legion Bumblebee/Sideswipe etc..

Where as the new Bumblebee & Sideswipe would be the smaller characters I'd use with the warrior Megatronus & Optimus toys. (but legions work well for that too in vehicle mode at least - not so much in robot mode).

So I will need to see them as 2 things just like I feel the need to do with the previous Legends/Basic toys that represent bigger and smaller characters in the same price point.

I don't find that a distraction though.

BBTS has wave 1 in stock too with a much more reasonable price. The Entertainment Earth price was a bit high for the figures, roughly $2-$3 more.

Why are these Minicons' colors SO WRONG?

becasue these are essentially redecos and the colours on the box are of the original characters. I am just assuming this on Beast box being the case and turning it into a blanket statement.

Robots in Disguise fans looking for new Mini-Cons will be happy to note that the 1st wave of Mini-Con Battle Packs have been found at retail. Sideswipe comes with Anvil while Optimus Prime comes with Bludgeon and each contains translucent pieces which can attach to Optimus Prime and Sideswipe as armor or combine into a larger weapon. These were found at Toys R Us in Westland, MI for $14.99 each by Seibertron Podcaster Tigertrack. Interesting to note that in the Official Images, Bludgeon was referred to as Doomitron.
