Along with the recent sighting - reported here - of the Transformers: Robots in Disguise One Step Soundwave figure in both the US and Canada, we have confirmation of the same toy appearing charismatically in Australia too, thanks to the Ozformers discussion boards and member Polursine. There are other items in the mix too, as you can see, but Soundwave itself is priced at 19 AUSD (if the labelling is on the correct peg, from the image).

In other news from Oz, fellow Seibertron.com staff member Qwan used the sighting to check out their regular haunts, and came across the diecast Dickie Toys figurines from the very same Robots in Disguise section of the franchise, for 10$ AUSD each, featuring the likes of: Optimus Prime, Strongarm, Steeljaw, Sideswipe, Bumblebee and Drift. Check it all out below!

I'm an American and I wouldn't mind having a set of those die cast cars. Oddly, I don't own any of the TLK die cast or any RPMs.

I was just doing some research for fun as to which toys were selling better and it seems that the notion of Titans return selling better than RID is a myth.

As of right now, on toysrus.ca, only 1 RID toy can be ordered, Ultra Bee. Everything else is sold out, which is pretty incredible. For titans return, we have that whole wave of toys that no one is buying, including Quake, Krok and Triggerhappy (along with Trypticon but he is a very high ticket item so I get it).

I looked on Toysrus.com and while there are more RID toys available, the combiners are sold out.

So yeah, this toyline sold pretty well.

Coming to us once again from our good friend, fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999, we have a review of the One-Step-Changer Soundwave for the Robots in Disguise Combiner Force subline! As the final One-Step Changer in said line, the figure seems to be a positive note to close out on, featuring a good-looking vehicle mode, effective transformation and a robot mode remarkably accurate to the character's in-show appearance (albeit with some significant kibble on its back).

Check out Chuck's review and thoughts below, and let us know what you think too, by telling us in the Energon Pub Forums!

All things must come to an end, so to Transformer lines. One-Step Soundwave is the last One-Step changer from the RID Combiner Force subline. While not as flashy or involved as other simplified figures, it does make for a fun desk toy and a positive period to the line.

With the relatively recent news of the Transformers: Robots in Disguise warrior class Twinferno figure finally making it to US shelves, we now have news that his smaller scaled toy, legion class Twinferno has been found as well. This particular sighting is from fellow Seibertronian Megatron Wolf who found it at Target in Sayville, NY, for $5.99 USD. This confirms that the US release of these remaining figures is indeed different from the rest of the world where Hasbro distributed, since everywhere else, the next wave should have had legion class Cyclonus and Heatseeker instead with Twinferno coming after that particular wave.

It is currently unknown if the Cyclonus/Heatseeker wave, which has already been spotted in markets outside the US, has been outright skipped in the US or if it will be coming out after the legion Twinferno wave. While there is currently no listing of the CyclonusHeatseeker wave from any US based store, we should remember that the warrior class waves have been out of order as well in the US. The best example is the US getting a wave consisting of just one warrior class Twinferno along with repacked figures as opposed to the Bludgeon/Thermidore/Twinferno wave which is scheduled to come out later this year in the US, half a year after being found everywhere else.

All to say that the US distribution of this line has not been aligned with the rest of the world for some reason, but the good news is that the toys do seem to eventually come out and the US gets this legion class wave a bit earlier than other countries. So early in fact that there has yet to be any video review for this legion class Twinferno. So if you spot any or make one yourself in the next couple of days, let us know!

When looking at all sightings across the world for the Transformers: Robots in Disguise line, there are only two products (that we know of) left to come out. Those are the two remaining Crash Combiners, Primelock and Saberclaw. Primelock is made up of Optimus Prime and Grimlock while Sabreclaw is made up of Bisk and Saberhorn. Both of these toys were previously seen at SDCC 2017 and months later we finally have some stock images, giving us a better look at them.

These final two toys from the line take a nice turn by incorporating beast modes rather than just vehicles with Grimlock and Saberhorn. This is also the first (and only) Saberhorn toy we are getting. These images come to us from Amazon though the products are currently only offered through a third party seller. What is odd is the release date being April 2018, which would be months after the rest of the line is on shelves. The release date is just for this particular third party seller so it is unknown if Amazon, or any other retailer will get them earlier.

Ok, I'll admit Saberhorn looks pretty neat. But they still look like they are wearing funny pants.

It feels like an insult that this is the only Saberhorn we are getting. Those beetlecons were f***ing RAD.

Well Animal Transformers don't usually tend to sell as well as other Transformers, besides maybe the Dinobots and that's probably cause their more iconic.

Courtesy of a fellow Seibertron.com fan, we have news of a video review of the recently spotted (in the US) Robots in Disguise Combiner Force Legion class Twinferno! The tiny terror was reviewed by YouTuber 84jruss, and can be viewed in the short clip embedded below.

As we wrote in our previous story about this toy 'the US release of these remaining figures is indeed different from the rest of the world where Hasbro distributed, since everywhere else, the next wave should have had legion class Cyclonus and Heatseeker instead with Twinferno coming after that particular wave.' So they may appear with more irregularity - make sure to use our Sightings Database section to help out other collectors if you come across one, and check it on there for your own hunt!

I thought Legion Twinferno was reviewed a long time ago. Had I realized I would've put mine up yesterday, lol. It's a good figure. Here it is for those interested.

FINALLY!!! I have been checking Amazon pretty much every day watching for a listing for Primelock and Saberclaw. Cannot wait to get those 2. Say what you will, but I liked the simplified combiners. And these 2 look both funny and cool :lol:

The Robots in Disguise wave of warrior class figures including Thermidor and Bludgeon has finally hit the US, half a year after this final wave hit the rest of the world. It is great news though since final waves usually suffer from lack of proper distribution due to retailers preferring to stock a new line.
This particular sighting comes from MegaX Master who found Robots in Disguise Thermidor and Bludgeon at Walmart in Rifle Colorado.
For those curious to see what these toys are all about, or for those hesitant about purchasing these, we have a pictorial review of Bludgeon and Thermidor.

There is only one of each of these in every case of eight figures. These two have been highly anticipated by Americans who really hoped not to have to resort to the secondary market so please post your findings in the sightings section and sightings forum.

BRILLIANT!!! Let's limit the new decos to 2 of 8 and make sure the rest of the case is full of bumblebee, Optimus prime, and windblade! Great thinking Hasbro! :rodimusstar: :HEADHURTS:
