Poor neglected RID.

John Warden (or the guy interviewing him) even forgot it existed (as they did Rescue Bots too) in the recent Forbes interview.

Well I say interview more like a press release pretending to be an interview.

The molds of most minis were available in other ways right? Like Hammer is with Crazybolt and Back is with Battlepack Grimlock. And the others are in that 4 pac with weapon slipstream. If one skips wave 3 and 4, is tehre a mold that we wouldnt have?

It's not that I want different molds, it's that I want to finish the minicon pairs. I want forth to go with my back, I want Swelter and Glacius so I have that pair, and I need Ransack to go with Backtrack, so it's more me finishing the show minicon pairs

I have the Back that came with Grimlock, I want the individual Forth since the paint jobs are reversed basically

I'm loving Beastbox. Dragonus, Slipstream, and Divebomb are alright but maaan Beastbox is a dangerously awesome little ape. The lack of articulation doesn't even bother me. Buying these 4 unlocked the need to get more mini-cons. Definitely gonna have to pick up the ones that turn into weapons. Might even need to fill in the gaps of the first couple waves so I can make the shark and lion energy beasts.

Technically, there are no actual toys of Forth yet. See the following for an explanation of the confusion:
http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Back
http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Forth
Back's Wiki article wrote:Prior to the toy's release, there was quite a bit of confusion regarding single-packed Back's name. Some online retailers initially solicited the figure under the names "Decepticon Backfire" or "Kickback". Whilst the figure was subsequently named as just "Decepticon Back" in official Hasbro solicitations, stock photos of the toy in packaging and in the Robots in Disguise mobile game, further confusion arose when the figure's North American packaging sported the name "Decepticon Forth", as did the listing on the official Hasbro.com website. International releases, including Hong Kong, Australia and Europe, still sport the "Back" name. Eventually both versions were even found side by side at the same store in the US… and then Hasbro released a Mini-Con Mega-Pack sporting an unchanged re-release of the figure, again named "Decepticon Forth". With the Robots in Disguise cartoon having presented Forth as a very different-looking character, this wiki currently treats that name for the figure as an error, though we can't help but notice that Hasbro seems to keep quite literally going back and forth with the figure's name.
Forth's Wiki article wrote:For reasons unknown, the North American packaging of Back's single-packed toy labels him as Forth, which led to a whole heap of confusion between the characters until their cartoon debut.

Dunno what's taking Hasbro so long to get on the ball with making an actual Forth toy that isn't just Back with Forth's name.

I mean this dragon right here? This looks awesome. Give us a toy of this dragon, Hasbro!

Well I got Warrior Class Windblade, Scorponok & Power Surge Optimus Prime - pleasingly quickly in the UK - now the question is will the Legion Class, One steps and Minicons show up too.

I only rarely see Minicons for sale and frankly they cost to much at £7.00 each. (especially with the lack of paint and lack of Articulation in them).

They are more like a £4.50 price toy. The gift sets are much better value - so hopefully some of them will show up - i do think it's a shame though that they didn't keep the parts frame on all versions as it would be nice to get the accessory parts in enough colours to make multiple coloured lion/sharks.

Hopefully more stuff will begin to show up after September.

I thought the UK was up to date on minicons. Kurona reported seeing weapon dragonus months ago. Those still haven't shown up in north America yet.

eBay doesn't have them? I'd try. Looking on the Hasbro website as well if I were you. If I see anything online then I'll let you know.

Minicons are just thin on the ground in my neck of the woods is all
One big Tesco and one big Sainsburys in 3 counties is the only place I know that sells them. (all wave 1) and all £7.00 each still. I did see them reduced to £5.40 once but even that was pricey I thought.

They are also out of stock online on The Entertainer too.
I don't see many Rescue Bots either as the main places to buy them I don't have except 50 miles away from me.
