Through some brilliant engineering, he ends up hiding every detail from his torso in alt mode. Minus the arms, of course, and it is to bad that they don't end up more compact in alt mode. However, they do peg in securely and do blend in with the cybertronian nature of the vehicle.
A large chunk of the alt mode is folded very neatly on his back in robot mode, but it does en up giving him extra crests behind his helmet. You will see in the images that you can always pose him with that backpack lowered to get rid of that look.
I would love a Cyberbattalion version of that Cyclonus!

The Target Toy Book is going out now. There's a $10 Target car with $50 toy purchase offer on the back of the Toy Book.
Starting on Sunday 10/29 through 11/11, texting TOY to Target (827438) will get you a 25% a single toy (or sporting good or kids' craft) item. It's probably one coupon per phone number so you probably can't get one each day. Also, starting on 11/1 through Thanksgiving, there will be a daily deal on a toy each day. I can't recall if any Transformers toys popped up there on last year.
Specific to Robots in Disguise Toys:
Transformers Robots In Disguise Combiner Force Activator Combiners $16.99 (Reg. 19.99)
Transformers Rid Force Team Combiner $24.99 (Reg. 29.99)

And I will pretend her little scan badge is actually her police Cadet badge. That's why it has a big circle around the and no one else has one.

Below are images of both these sightings along with an image of the robot mode.
Other Robots in Disguise toys that have yet to be found at US retail would be warriors Bludgeon and Thermidor, legions Heatseeker, Cyclonus and Twinferno and Crash Combiners Optimus Prime/Grimlock and Saberhorn/Bisk. Let us know if ever you find those in the wild!

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!

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.

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.

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!
