We have a strange piece of news today coming from yours truly! PEZ has apparently released a new variety of their famous candy dispenser, called Connectibles! These feature pieces of a character to turn your tiny sweet station into an action figure, of sorts! One of the characters PEZ has released is Bumblebee from Robots in Disguise, and his Connectible pack comes with a dispenser, candy, a chest piece, two arms, and a sword! He was found at Scrumptious Ice Cream Shop in Longmont, Colorado! While Bee was the only Connectible pack spotted, PEZ most likely makes them for their other RID Dispensers, such as Grimlock and Optimus Prime.

B&M sells RID Pez that are just the basic dispensers along with some sweets and no armour.

Here's my look at the new Optimus Prime Combiner Activator. I think this is the best Activator released thus far.

I've fiddled with my battle pack Strongarm, despite the manual and stock photos telling me to put the arm armor shark face facing forward, I find they peg in better facing back.

Love the toy, just needs a lot of paint apps.

Thanks to a post on Ozformers, we have news that the new wave of Robots in Disguise: Combiner Force has been found at Australian retail! Bludgeon was sighted at Toyworld, though the rest of his wave was already gone by the time he was sighted. With this sighting in mind, head on out to your Australian retail stores and hunt down these new figures!

Nice :D only really into Twinferno and Thermidor tho but I'll take a bludgeon since RID has dashed my hopes of a toon accurate Blastwave. Also is Twinferno a new character here or is he supposed to be a Doublecross redesign?

A bit of both, given how universes work in Transformers. "Twinferno" is the new name for Doublecross in any given line, due Hasbro being unable to obtain the legal rights, or trademark, to the name. No big loss, the new name is better than the old one, a rarity.

Just saw the episode with Blastwave and was wondering, is he still available on shelves where the cartoon airs? I know the episode is a few weeks old but this was like a Wave 1 or 2 Combiner Force figure.

Yes. He is currently still available in Canadian Walmart stores. He's available in the US no?

The wave he's in is still available at my local Walmarts, but the one after it is moving in fast.

Thanks to finding the decepticon island showdown set discounted, I now have my first warriors, Bumblebee and Steeljaw.
I definitely like Bumblebee more, better articulated and stable.
Steeljaw, I really want to love him, but I think the arms are limited and the way the feet are made sucks. I do like how he looks though.

So my Ultra Bee and Menasor arrived today. Dang, I love these figures. There are some neat tricks in Bee and Motormaster, and I love Grimlock. They may only move at the shoulders, but they are really cool. Neat little $24 figures that I do not mind at all.

I love how Bee's robot head goes inside his combiner head. that seems to be a popular things nowadays, see TLK Infernocus :lol:

I think between them, Ultra Bee is my favorite. The 4 bot combining thing is really unique and I love it. The figures themselves are cool for the simple things that they are.

Those familiar with the Robots in Disguise line are well aware that it keeps repackaging previously released toys to bring variety to shelves and keep the popular characters around. This is very similar to the days of G1 where the same toys would keep being rereleased to answer the demand of any new fan or parent who would discover the toyline and show. Wave 11 of the Warrior Class was the one with Twinferno, Bludgeon and Thermidor and now, thanks to a listing from Entertainment Earth, we know of the wave coming after that, wave 12. It is entirely made of rereleases but of only 1 character per case, which will help some fans get toys that they might have missed before. Below is a content of the all the rereleased Robots in Disguise toys making up wave 12. This is said to come out in September, so probably part of the Back to School restock we sometimes see in toy aisles.

Case of 8 individually packaged figures includes:
1x TRA RID WARRIOR BUMBLEBEE
1x TRA RID WARRIOR GRIMLOCK
1x TRA RID WARRIOR STRONGARM
1x TRA RID WARR POWER SURGE OPTIMUS PRIME
1x TRA RID WARRIOR STARSCREAM
1x TRA RID WARRIOR WINDBLADE
1x TRA RID WARRIOR SOUNDWAVE
1x TRA RID WARRIOR AUTOBOT TWINFERNO

I really hope that doesn't mean there won't be a new wave with new figures before the show ends... I am hoping for one more revealed at Hascon

All the shelf space for RID has vanished when TESCO got some in (in some places in the UK) they were gone in moments leaving empty shelves again.

Tesco is weird they have a shelf space for Transformers that is always empty around here. even when they are hugely over priced they still seem to clear quickly.

---------------

1x TRA RID WARRIOR BUMBLEBEE
1x TRA RID WARRIOR GRIMLOCK
1x TRA RID WARRIOR STRONGARM
1x TRA RID WARR POWER SURGE OPTIMUS PRIME
1x TRA RID WARRIOR STARSCREAM
1x TRA RID WARRIOR WINDBLADE
1x TRA RID WARRIOR SOUNDWAVE
1x TRA RID WARRIOR AUTOBOT TWINFERNO


I suppose Bumblebee has not been around much for a while now.

A Grimlock with Battlemask (but in green) or a Windblade with the new head but the old colours - would have been more use perhaps.

I'm sick to death of seeing Strongarm though - she's very over-supplied - where is Jazz, Scatterspike, Bisk & Ratchet ? Heck where is Steeljaw.

[yes I know there is a twin pack]

The UK need Bisk, Ratchet & Scatterspike - I suspect they don't have the push in the UK to pester the head office for a wave with them in - or they might be using the Stunticon excuse again about not being able to release them due to packaging.... as they'd need to repack them in Combiner Force packets and get them safety tested.

But they had to make new boxes for Strongarm, Grimlock, Bumblebee and others.

I think a better way to spend their time would be to pop in a few sandy deco versions - or versions with battle mask heads. Or even re-releasing drift with the Japanese head.

Grimlock, Windblade and Jazz already have an alternative head - why don't they use them.
If Bee was released again with a battle mask head i'd buy him again.
Also if they must keep re-releasing Strongarm they could at least make here in the reverse colour deco or in Black & white. even if they don't want to release her with a new head.

Also since the toys have got more expensive since they 1st came out they could probably add a bit more paint back too..

Seems like a waste of sale potential to me to at the very least not re-release Jazz & Ratchet or consider using the alternative heads - where they are available.

And this is why the new stuff is so hard to find, they ship out more of the stuff thats already clogging shelves and include one single new guy. I get trying to keep the popular characters on shelves but cut it back a bit or do variations, id rather see a repaint than a straight up repack. Glad im not an RiD fan, its hard enough trying to beat scalpers and other collectors but having to do that with only 1 new figure per case doesnt sound fun.
