We have some more news regarding the Robots in Disguise line with more sightings. While the latest warriors are now out, fellow Seibertronian Stevo has also found Power Surge Starscream and yours truly has found the individual weapon minicons. While it may seem like we have waited a very long time to get these minicons, they are technically falling within the expected release time since they are the third wave of mini-cons this year. It's just that the previous two waves were not stocked at the big box retailers. This first weapon mini-con wave consists of Tricerashot, Bashbreaker, Lord Doomitron and Weapon Slipstream. These mini-cons were found in a newly stocked Walmart in Montreal for $7.92 CAD while the Power Surge Starscream was found at Toysrus in Whitby for $49.99 CAD.

Thanks for the offer, I'll be sure to keep it in mind.

Canada, Australia, Europe, pretty much everyone seems to get stuff in stores long before we do and in bigger numbers. And sometimes even at better prices, it's been years since I've seen a Transformer on clearance or even on sale for that matter. At least that's how it is for the stores available to me. I think Target may have had a coupon last year?

My Walmart got some new Transformers in a couple nights ago. But they totally sold out & the pegs are completely empty again. You would never know they restocked unless you happened to be there.

Seems like every other toy line is fully stocked. Only the Transformers section is a huge gaping hole of nothing. :-(

And so far every store around here gets 1 Galvatron & 1 Sentinel Prime at a time. What is THAT about? There's only 1 of each in a case? And they never get more than 1 case at a time? Didn't they just do their reset for Christmas? Isn't the whole point of resetting for Christmas so they can stock more toys & make more money during the holidays??? Or am I nuts? :HEADHURTS:

Ole Will drives me up a wall when he talks about his TRU and the ways they operate so superior to America TRU's. I can say with confidence that the last time I bought a TRU transformer was 3 years ago and that was Prime Shockwave (other than Clash Sideswipe last year)

What I couldnt beleive about your Yankees was how your walmarts didt even have a stanard price for a class within a line. That is just bonkers to me. I cannot imagine ordering online and having to pay more for Prowl than Mirage on Walmart. But you guys have very good pricing policies. Your TRU matches price with Amazon. Speaking of which, you actually have Amazon. Amazon.ca is a joke and stocks only a handful of Transformers a year. Plus you have Hasbro toy shop and its free shipping offers, only americans can profut from that.

Also, Emerge, about prices while I have been able to get them cheaper,there was some effort with using policies. Canada sells TFs for about the same price. Our deluxes are the equivalent of $16 US but our minicons and Titans Masters are close to $6.50 so you definitely beat us there.

Has to be shipped and sold by Amazon to qualify for price matching. Same for Target and Walmart I believe. Give it another shot, maybe the employee was in the dark or lazy. If they refuse, then pull up the page that states the policy on your phone. I had to have that handy at other stores before.

You sure? Its corporate policy:

We will match prices from selected online competitor websites, including Walmart.com, Target.com, BestBuy.com, Gamestop.com, Macy’s.com, Kohl’s.com, JC Penny.com, Michaels.com, Hobby Lobby.com, Barnes & Noble.com, Sears.com, Kmart.com, Bed, Bath & Beyond.com, buybuyBaby.com, Meijer.com, FredMeyer.com, diapers.com, BabyDepot.com, LEGO.com, YoYo.com, Amazon.com.


Lots of fans who know this have been using TRU to their advantage du to their usual better stock. They use other people's prices and TRU's toys. Its very helpful for when TRU will raise their prices during off seasons, like what we had 2 months ago. Once you know how to deal with the policy, TRU can be a great advantage to you.

That TRU I went to last weekend was selling the deluxe Sky Reign Autobots for $23 each and Titans Return deluxe for $17. Devastator was $170, but Fort Max was $150. :HEADHURTS:

What you think we should actually lower the price of the old stock so it moves? Nah we're just gonna keep the prices higher than the new stuff.

Toysrus... Why you do that? #-o :BANG_HEAD:

We have a couple of new sightings sent our way from across the States, for the Transformers: Robots in Disguise line! First up from a Toys'R'Us in Cary, North Carolina, via ScottyP, we get the new Power Surge 10-step Starscream figure, complete with his Mini-Con Lancelon ($29.99). And via Multicron in Fairfax, Virgina, we have confirmation of the TRU exclusive Deluxes, including Optimus Prime, Starscream, and Paralon, plus the Bumblebee and Steeljaw 2-pack with Stasis Pod!

UPDATE: Site owner Seibertron has also come across the full load in Schaumburg, Illinois. Photo proof below! The figures are out there, Seibertronians. Go hunt.

Remember, if you have any sightings to notify us with, please email us via the contact form, or flag it up in the Sightings database and regional boards! Happy hunting.

Was at walmart today and saw pegs for the minicon weaponizers but the price was $2.50, so either hasbro is finally pricing things right or its a clearance price for the old minicons. Speaking of the old minicons with the weaponziers showing up i guess waves 3 & 4 wont be making it to stores, hell at this rate id be surprised if anything made it to the stores.

Yep, I wanted 4 minicons from waves 3 and 4 and I can't find them. They ended up at TJMaxx and stuff and there is nothing at the ones near me

Probably the old minicons. I saw them at walmart at that price and finally took notice of them. Hard to pass up transformers that cheap even if I have little interest. Would be nice if those tags stuck around for the weapon guys though.

Another day, another round of reviews! Thanks to Youtubers Chuckdawg1999 and emgo316 we bring to you our latest round of reviews, this time focusing on the Robots in Disguise Power Surge line. Up first is Chuck's review of Power Surge Sideswipe and his minicon Windstrike, which can be found below:

Chuckdawg1999 wrote:Power Surge Sideswipe is part of the simplified line of RID figures. Sideswipe is a chunky robot, that reminds me of 80s Transformer. Activating the sounds is a bit awkward, with or without the Minicon attached. Most collectors will pass on this but I can really see kids enjoying it.



Up next are Emgo's reviews of Power Surge Starscream with Lancelon and Power Surge Optimus Prime with Aerobolt. Check them out:

Wave 3 and 4 did make it to stores, just no the big box ones. All those waves were sent to the market six stores like TJ Maxx, marshalls and the rest.

Speaking of minicons, do we know what wave 6 is already?
