Here's a piece of probably news for a Sunday - site sponsor RobotKingdom.com has uploaded a listing for Takara Tomy Transformers Robots in Disguise TAV07 Roadblock (remember that list of figures for the line we reported on a while back?). Available around March 2015, the very grainy image seems to confirm the list's Generations Scoop redeco, too - check it out below!

It's totally Scoop. I am super curious about the deco they gave him (especially on the targetmasters).

interesting... wouldn't the Scoop mould be out of style compared to the other RID figures?

Regardless, if it's a cool deco, I'll probably pick it up - I quite like Scoop

Because they came with his Hasbro release maybe?

He would be quite a bit. Then again, he won't be the first foreign mold for the line as we have:

- TAV09 Swoop (Animated mold predicted)
- TAV10 Snarl (Animated mold predicted)
- TAV11 Knock Out (Beast Hunters mold predicted, unreleased in Japan)
- TAV12 Dreadwing (Beast Hunters mold predicted, unreleased in Japan)

Eagerly awaiting the decos on all of them, especially for Knock Out.

For the record, the Japanese version of the new RID line will be called "Transformers: Adventure", explaining the "TAV" part of the ID numbers.

Speaking of which, what would HA stand for? There's a second line which contains the One-Step and Three-Steps, and an AoE Power Battler:

- HA01 Bumblebee (Three-Step)
- HA02 Grimlock (Three-Step)
- HA03 Sideswipe (One-Step)
- HA04 Prowl (AoE One-Step)
- HA05 Junkion (AoE Power Battler Junkheap)

That's a good question. My guess is that we might have another case like with Lost Age Series and Movie Advanced Series being two separate lines for the same feature presentation, only this time with the more advanced line (Adventure) being the primary line while the simpler line (HA) being the secondary, rather than vice-versa like it was with Lost Age.

Human Alliance. I am just kidding, probably something along the lines of Hyperchange Action or something.

Could also be another case of using a Japanese word (like Henkei). Maybe it's Henshin (to change) Adventures since they're using 1-Step and 3-Step Changers.

Anyway, the Scoop figure would make a better Cybertron/Galaxy Force Landmine/Guardshell than Roadblock. Then they could pass off his Targetmaster partners for Minicons.

We'll just have to wait and see what either the packaging for the simpler toys says or what TakaraTomy's website (when they update it to make a section for the Adventure toys) says.

Frankly, I think Scoop would make a better Scrapper than anyone else, but that won't happen (at least in the U.S.) because Scrapper is dead in IDW continuity, plus there's the rumored all-Voyager Devastator he could theoretically be in.

Thanks to the Polish retailer Merlin, we get a small in-package image of the Transformers Robots in Disguise 3-step Hyperchange Optimus Prime. The image also reveals what Optimus looks like in his robot mode and gives you a peek as to what his transformation is like. Previously, Hyperchange Optimus Prime was only seen in his vehicle mode.

I almost looks like Drift is a retool of bumblebee.

Decent amount of merchandise for a guy who's dead and at most will be acting as a blue Jedi spirit mentor.

Hmmm that Swoop may be a buy as well, if the colours are G1 enough for me to repurpose it...

He'll be having his own (most possibly onscreen) adventure in the afterlife.
