Due to a new listing on Entertainment Earth for the entire Wave 10 of the Robots in Disguise (2015) toyline, we have a breakdown of which figures will be included in the wave in which quantities. The new figures - new Autobot mold Stormshot, a redeco of Drift in his IDW colours and a pre-deco of Bludgeon called Blastwave - are unfortunately shortpacked as well as the previously TRU-exclusive Starscream; with unchanged previous releases Grimlock and Strongarm taking up half the case.

2x TRA RID WARRIOR GRIMLOCK
2x TRA RID WARRIOR STRONGARM
1x TRA RID WARRIOR STARSCREAM
1x TRA RID WARRIOR BLASTWAVE
1x TRA RID WARRIOR STORMSHOT
1x TRA RID WARRIOR AUTOBOT DRIFT

Wouldn't it make more sense to double up on at least one of the new figures? I get it Hasbro wants to make sure kids coming into the show can still get their main characters, but I'd think more kids have their main characters already and would want new stuff. Collectors would want the new stuff too, although they're not the target audience. Just a thought.

this assortment is f$%&ing stupid. Grimlock and Strongarm were both in wave 1. which came out in december of 2014. these toys are literally 2 years old. anyone who actually wanted one, be they collector or child has had ample time to procure them.

Consider the re-releases "second chances" for the one who have been waiting for more Decepticons to appear in the line. Some actually did wait.

Putting Strongarm and Grimlock back on the shelf makes sense. They sell and their show appearances haven't really changed. I imagine we'll see these shortpacked figures in later waves in higher quantities to coincide with (presumably) some actual appearances in the show.

Stormshot being a completely new mold Autobot with no references to previous characters suggests to me he's gonna be a new Autobot on the show so I'm betting he'll pull more appearances in future waves. At the very least most of them should be shortpacked in other waves.

Which would be me. I literally just got into the line a couple weeks ago, nabbing Windblade, Paralon, and Thunderhoof (granted, only got the first two as makeshift stand-ins), and I am considering getting that Strongarm now...

I wouldn't have minded a Patrol Strongarm deco at all for the Warrior toy mould - the Blue version again is a bit superfluous. Grimlock might even be considered a problem if they follow this wave set up in the UK as Sainsbury's just got a refresh wave that included him.

I would have though bringing Steeljaw back would have made more sense. Not to mention it's bad assortment planning to include multiples of the same character at the same time as it just increases the likely hood one of them won't sell as well.

I thought when they did that with Bisk & Ratchet it was kinda Bizarre enough.

Now that I think about it, now that regular non-animal Decepticons are released, what are the chances of us getting a Rollbar? ;)

Has the newer wave release of Grimlock had its exploding elbows fixed?

Stormshot is an all new mold which is heavily based on a combiner wars Aerialbot mold, minus only the combiner port and featuring a tighter backpack, and features a pretty good paint job of red, white, and blue. Stormshot is schedule for release along with wavemates Drift and Blastwave at the very beginning of 2017, so stay tuned for those guys to start showing up in stores!

Robot mode is very cool looking, with a nice red, white, and blue color scheme. Transformation is satisfying, although I'm concerned about stress marks on some ports. Overall, Stormshot just might be my favorite figure from RID thus far.



groovy!

hope the head can turn 180 for alt mode.

otherwise?

groovy

Scottimus Prime has reached out to us with his video showing the transformation for Blastwave. You get to see the similarities and changes to Megatronus, which share the same base mold. This is great for fans of the upcoming Bludgeon toy since this is the same toy but in an autobot deco.

As if a Bludgeon would allow an Autobot walking around with an identical body...

The latest Deluxe and Legion wave for Robots in Disguise is slowly making its way across the US. For the deluxes, which include Alpine Drift, Stormshot and Blastwave, they have now also been found at Target (the images below are from Palatine, IL).

Target also now has the latest Legion wave, which includes Satarscream and Springload (the ones below were found in Okemos, MI). And if you dont have a Target or TRU in your area no worries, these anticipated legion toys are now on Amazon too. You can get Springload here and Starscream here.

I never opened the Warrior Grimlock I bought as I happened to buy the KO one and pick up the 3 step around the same time at a carbootsale so I never got around to opening the warrior one. If I see one in revised packaging then I might give it a try - but would I be brave enough to bend the elbows though - hard to say.

I like the look of that plane and it's nice Starscream is getting a regular release version too - I would hope RID has a bit longer legs now though as I would really hope they get around to doing Thundercracker before the line dies as incomplete seeker sets drives me crazy.

Out of curiosity, have you guys tried the fix I showed in my video on the Seibertron.com YouTube channel? Simple fix that negates this problem.
