Fellow Seibertronian Mindmaster has some good news for Transformers: Robots in Disguise fans. He found Warrior Twinferno at a Toysrus in Wilmington, NC. However, he only found Twinferno which is a good indication that this is the wave that only has Twinferno as a new figure, with the rest being repacks, and not the wave including Bludgeon and Thermidor. Let us know if ever you find Bludgeon or Thermidor and good luck on the hunt.

Had a chance to fiddle with this mold at Hascon, and I was not impressed. Feels flimsy and has a very weak alt mode.

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!

Target has sales going from now through 11/22 (Wednesday before Thanksgiving).

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.

https://www.bfads.net/Target-2017-Toy-Book-Posted

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)

The Transformers: Robots in Disguise line has really been all over the place with distribution depending on the country with toys being outright skipped. When the US started getting a wave containing only one Twinferno with no Bludgeon or Thermidor, which was different than what every other country got, people feared for the worst. Well, we have some good news for fans of the line and those looking for either that Bludgeon or Thermidor. We have our first US listing of the wave including those two at Entertainment Earth. There it states that this wave is due out in December 2017. It also gives a content of the case where we see which toys are being repacked along with the new figures.

Case of 8 individually packaged figures includes:
1x TRA RID WARRIOR BUMBLEBEE
1x TRA RID WARRIOR GRIMLOCK
1x TRA RID WARRIOR STRONGARM
1x TRA RID WARR POWER SURGE OPTIMUS PRIME
2x TRA RID WARRIOR AUTOBOT TWINFERNO
1x TRA RID WARRIOR DECEPTICON BLUDGEON
1x TRA RID WARRIOR THERMIDOR

Between the smiling Cyclonus and Thermidor's silly grin I think hasbro has targeted my weakness for cute things. I'll probably wait till they show up at retail of course.

If you're thinking about Galvatronus, this might help. It's an ok figure, not how I would've ended the line.

So, my TAV Strongarm turned up yesterday. Must say, she's a decent little figure. Fun, full of character. Only real problem is her shoulder kibble gets in the way of her door wings when posing but can still get her in some good looks. She's not enough to make me want to get any more of RID but I certainly am very happy with her. She'll look great on my classics shelf beside Prowl, training under him.

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

I found Twinferno at a Target in Philadelphia today! It looks like some of those Warrior class toys that people were trying to hunt down are finally popping up!

There are still several toys left to be released at US retail for the Robots in Disguise line, before the next show toyline, Cyberverse, comes. A big returning character from Transformers Prime this season was Soundwave, in a new alt mode, and several toys in different classes were made for this character. The latest of which, the One Step Soundwave, has now hit both US and Canadian retail the very same week. The sightings below come from Scotty P who found it in Walmart in Cary, NC for $7.86 USD and from your fellow editor who found it in Walmart in Montreal, Qc for $9.92 CAD.
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!

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!
