That price for those RID toys isnt that bad compared to what I heard from some UK fans. Its pretty standard all things considered, with them being $19.99 USD in the US as MSRP. THE RID toys are $20 MSRP in Canada too.

Yeah, they have been reported already. Everything from that first wave has been found at US retail. We are now waiting for the second wave to surface which would have those new crash combiner characters.

Phew, I feel better now. Though I'll make sure to report anything else I find in the future ASAP, rather than wait several weeks.

Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 has provided us with 2 of his latest reviews for Robots in Disguise figures, this time in the form of Activator Combiners Strongarm with Trickout and Bumblebee with Stuntwing! These figures operate using Dark of the Moon era Stealth Force, with the vehicle mode exploding into battle mode, just this time the gimmick is minicon activated. These figures have also started to show up at retail as well. Check out Chuck's reviews below!

This set is an interesting package. Drawing upon elements once found in MASK, Strongarm is a simplified transformer that springs up into a monster truck type vehicle. Trickout, Strongarms companion, is a fun little truck that serves its purpose. Most collectors will pass on this set, but kids will love it and it makes a fun desk toy.



Bumblebee and Stuntwing make a nice little pair in the Combiner Force sub-line of RID. Bumblebee's transformation is less involved than Strongarm's although, the activated vehicle mode isn't as fun. Stuntwing is a fun little minicon and makes a great blaster.

Anyone else think Strongarm's legs are just oversized versions of her Legion class figure with different wheels?

too bad there's no way to get the minicon seperatley. looks to be the only appealing part of the set.

More like the Armada Mini-Con gimmick, what with these being Mini-Cons that activate a feature, after all. ;)

If anyone has chance (perhaps in a tru) I'd be interested to see a side by side photo or at least a report to find out of the new Warrior Starscream is a simple re-pack or a slight repaint.

Also I just realised how peculiar it is that if they can repack previous exclusives that they don't make something like a new Megatronus release (of the one with the battle mask face) same colour as before or not.

Oh and I got the Combiner Force Bumblebee One Step Changer he's not unlike the green slash packet One Step-Prime really transformations wise - his arms raise but his head doesn't move. and he almost totally lacks for paint.
Also the clip on wheels stick a lot too.

I'll see if I can find the Optimus too.

Dont know about that. All I can tell you is that Legion Ratchet and legion Bisk are not in the same wave.

Hm. That's frustrating when Ratchet's the only figure from this line I really wanted, aside from maybe Battle Mask Windblade... hope he's put into a future wave.

I ended up having to get Warrior Ratchet off eBay. Took some hunting but I got him for a little over retail price.

Does anyone know if/when we are getting more RiD eps?

I've been looking for listings for them. When I checked yesterday, there were still no new episodes in the 2 week future, so we're looking at at least February
