Is Windstrike a remold of Lancelon (or other way around) or is it a new mold?

It's safe to say some RiD Mini-Cons reuse transformations without being retools. Seems to happen a lot these days...

Saw him with Strongarm, but opted for the lady instead. My boys like her character better.

A lot of the torpedo minicons share the same transformation while having completely new parts, so they could just share engineering, as was said, and it is not too uncommon

Something that has really disappointed me is that they never even put the wave 3 or 4 minicons up on HTS, and Crazybolt isn't there and is no where to be found, and they put up legion Bisk but no Groundpounder, and they are no where to be seen either at retail.

I really hoped to get those guys, but even HTS so far is letting me down, along with the stores I go to. I know that the minis appeared elsewhere but around here they were no where to be seen.

groundpounder was there, but they sold out of him, and took his post down while they were cleaning the site a couple weeks back, I've seen a a buncha times though, looks alright |:|

But even then, just buying that one figure would still incur shipping costs no? And yeah, it is weird that Hasbro wouldnt list those wave 3 and 4 minicons, especially since they werent so hot at big box retailers.

It would, but then I could buy it with other items to get the free shipping, or I could get it off the HTS Ebay store, which offers free shipping on everything over $0.99

If they weren't hot at big box retailers, what hope would they have of selling them on hts? wave 1 and 2 are still warming their digital shelves, besides, they don't get everything that's released...

If no one ordered them then Hasbro would have overstock and maybe resort to selling it through their own retail outlet HTS.

Fellow TF Fan MrNeurie wrote to us to let us know that the Weapon Mini-cons that make up the 5th wave of Robots in Disguise Mini-cons were found in the UK at Toys R Us. This wave includes Slipstream, Lord Doomitron, Bashbreaker and Tricerashot. These have yet to be found in the US, so let us know if ever you come across them.

Anyone else agree that two recolored Bashbreakers would make a good Rumble and Frenzy?

He's a con in the 4 pack, but doesn't come with the clear parts unfortunately.
