We now have proof that has absolutely nothing to do with it. If stores wanted to stock the shelves, they could. It's just toy products like any other, all part of a hasbro order. If anyone has doubts, check these pics of consistently stocked shelves from various stores in my area including the latest toys for all 3 lines:

I must still protest this. There are very few instances where this has proven to be true, and most of them come from Canada or a major city where a TFW guy takes pictures for sightings. There may be proof, but for 90%+ of us, it is no where close to being true

The question was never whether it would look like this for all of us, it was just whether it could work or not. So all you need is one example to see that it is probable and that the problem does not lie in the fact that its 3 lines occupying one brand's shelf space.

And we dont only have one example, we have an entire north american country with the same stores as the US showing its possible as well as other stores in the US in certain areas. If handling 3 lines was truly impossible, then you would have no examples, let alone all that has been shown. So that means that having to stock 3 lines is not the main factor. Let me ask you people this, were your walmarts and TRUs well stocked when there were only 2 lines? So before the movie line? was everything up to date all the time for those 2 lines? If not, then that means there was mismanagement (or lack of dedicated support) on their part all along and adding a third line does not factor into any distribution woes.

I dont remember anyone in the US saying in january that their stores were well stocked with all of TR wave 3, a time before we had the movie line and only had two lines to deal with. I instead remember heavy frustration and worry that toys might never come or waves might be skipped. So same as usual. Since this was before a third line factored into anything, then that means having 3 lines was not related and is not related. The stores that were well stocked and managed continue to be so and the ones that weren't continue to suck. I have never seen anything to suggest otherwise.

By the way, here are some pictures of the Team Combiners that I picked up. They are both really cool and it is hard to place one over the other; they're both really fun! Also, the yellow on Bee is far less bright in person, it looks much better

There seems to be the impression that stores in my area have trouble selling multiple subbrands at the same time.

For example they'd sell TLK legions but not the RID ones as well.

One of the best aspects of the Robots in Disguise line is it's mission to keep the fan favourite Legion class alive. The latest new Legion class figure, Twinferno, has been found at retail in Singapore at Toysrus. The back tells us he is 7 steps so only 1 step less than the warrior class version. Another good news is that his case comes with a repackage of Groundpounder who was skipped in certain areas of the world. This information comes to us from TFW2005 user darkavenger.

Ooh! I hope he'll be a bit better than the Warrior because I like the idea of a crazy twin-headed dragon samus ship.

one step less than the warrior class. that one step is probably the part where you straighten the wings in vehicle mode. most of the step will practically the exact same. but still, this legion class actually looks neat. might pick it up if it ever show up over here.

I thought it would be the step with his toes.

What is it with Hasbro putting only one new Character in a wave - sometimes not even repaints but all re-releases and just one single newbie.

It's weird. 2 should be the minimum.

I really hope they do something nice for the UK market like actually release Legion Bisk.

They could have also have made a Legion Thermidor pretty easily too or even a Purple & Green Blurr.

They could show some more effort at least. They claim RID isn't dead yet - but with the final batch of the show being so small I'd be very surprised if they put even as much of a push into winding it up as they did into Predacons Rising.

-------

I wish Hasbro wasn't being so cheap with their cartoons now - as what I'd actually like is a cartoon based on the unusued content for the cancelled Transformers Universe game (and perhaps the Japanese MMO) that would be a semi-sequel to Prime/RID too but with a return to the TF Prime art style.

One bad thing I have to say about Combiner Force is how they've been packaging the One-Step and Hyperchange figures. The open front is terrible to store and leaves the figure open to damage.

Open to theft too.

Sadly that too.

While Combiner Force Dragbreak, made up of Dragstrip and Wildbreak, from Robots in Disguise has been found at Walmart back in early July, these toys still havent reached anywhere near saturation and many fans have yet to own them or even see them. Well, Scottimus Prime has informed us that he has now found these at Target on Long Island. The other combiner force teams of Shocknado (Shock Drive and Warnado) and Lunar Force Prime Strong have also been found at Toysrus by both Scotty P and Scottimus Prime. So hopefully that means these toys will be reaching you soon. For those unaware of these toys, we have included some reviews of them below the images of these sightings.

They had all 3 of the newest ones in an ASDA I was in recently - the purple guys are very purple. I would have bought them if they'd been under £15.00 but I'm not paying £17.99 for them when they will be all over the online toystores sales in a few weeks (october/november at the latest).

I'm glad they are making a few more though - I'd love to get another dozen of them - the more they make the more useful they get.

I still wish the UK would get it's own tailored refresh warrior wave with all the things we missed out on or got understocked.

Really what is wrong with these people never re-issuing Jazz.

I'd guess it's because they already have a ton of Autobot Cars to sell, and Jazz hasn't shown up in fiction since his original episode.

I think the Lunar Prime repaint is the case mate to these new crash combiners. Here's a thought, what if the Prime/Strongarm set is a pre-tool for a Motormaster/Heatseaker release? Even better, the Stunticon set is redone as Optimus Prime and the Autobots. How about that?

I have Strongarm fatigue.

She's now outstayed her welcome - it would be as bad if they repainted her - or released her with a different weapon or battle mask - but the same one over and over is now boring to me.

I wanted Jazz, Ratchet, Scatterspike, Bisk to break up the monotany of another refresh leading to another re-release of Strongarm & Grimlock (again).

Why not re-release Steeljaw - even Thunderhoof has only been refreshed once. But some of the toys never. Considering Grimlock has been out so many times i've lost count - I don't think it's unreasonable to way - "Hey how about sliding in a Jazz or Bisk for a change".

Besides Grimlock and Strongarm are going to sell slower than a new toy would... at least until they have a sale offer on them.

There's no new tooling to Lunar force Prime Strong, it's just different plastic and paint colours.

However it does appear that the Optimus that comes as part of PrimeLock is either a retool or new mold, consider the different combined mode; head, shoulders & waist-plate.

I think he's talking about the molds in general, and I don't really see it. Optimus is a long-nose truck, while Motormaster is the cab-over-engine type, and Heatseeker lacks the lightbar. So far retools for Crash Combiners are limited to the robot forms with new heads and chest.

Cannot wait to see Dragbreak.

Course I really cannot wait for Primelock and Saberclaw. I love the simple combining gimmicks.

On that note, Ultra Bee is my favorite RiD figure of the year so far. The warriors have lacked some stuff this year, moving away from the con designs of the past year and a half, and Bee is just so much fun. and the very concept of him is really cool too.

So yes, if you get a combining figure, get Ultra Bee
