I found single carded Back and Ransack yesterday. There's a problem, though, I found Back at TJ Maxx and Ransack at Marshalls, they're already at close out! Nuts! I blame Ghostbusters :-P ! Really, though, i wonder what happened. I am glad someone found the 4 pack at Target.

Hello Seibertronians! We've got another Robots in Disguise sighting for you today, this time of the 5th wave of deploy-able Minicons! Coming from user Counterpunch, just after ScottP sighted some RID legion figures a few days ago. These little figures, consisting of Ransack, Glacius, and Scortch-strike Jetstorm, were all found in Metaire, Louisiana at Marshall's for $6.99! Take a look at the image Counterpuch provided below, and then check out Seibertron's galleries of the rest of the RID minicons here!

Wait, there was a wave three in stores? I never seen anything other than one and two. That was only just a week or two ago as well. I've seen the four packs though but not any of the singles. I'd rather they just keep releasing them in singles though as I actually like the translucent armor and weapons and the four packs only have those for two of them.

Wave 3 and 4 were both found at merket six stores like Ross and Marshalls.
The bigger stores sold off their inventory probably due to the line's weaponizer rebranding which these minicons are not a part of.

I pretty regularly check Ross, TJ Maxx, Big Lots and Marshalls and haven't seen any of these from any wave. Last week I had the opportunity to check a 5 below and a DD's Discounts and still nothing. The best I've found in months was the five step Megatronus Toys R Us exclusive at a Ross that I left on the shelf because I didn't want it.

After the in-hand images we saw a while back for the two new Warrior class figures in the Transformers: Robots in Disguise line - Scorponok and Windblade - we also have two video reviews for the Decepticon and Autobot, courtesy of tfrWLDNAS on YouTube in his post Roll Out Roll Call haul look. Check them out embedded below!

Like the look of Windblade and Scorponok! Since the Titan Force set (off of eBay) will be arriving sometime soon, I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for Scorponok.

I picked up a warrior class Thunderhoof yesterday, somewhere here in North Carolina east of Topsail Beach, and I seem to have a problem with him. Honestly, it could be user error, but I can't get his legs to snap in properly when transforming him to alt mode. Any help would be appreciated.

The exact issue is in snapping his tractor cab together.

Well dang Iron! I just transformed him because I wanted to help you out, but he just went right together.
I remember having a similar issue the first couple of times I TFed him too. Is it the main tabs that hold his legs together that are giving you trouble?

Do you have the receipt to bring it back to the store?

Talking about horrid QC/QA. That would definitely make it hard for it to come together. Is the best thing taking it back to the store for a refund or swap of a possible defective one again or would it be better in contacting Hasbro with it?

Nope. Bought it while traveling on vaca, and tossed the receipt with other travel trash. Ah well, guess he stays in robot mode.

Legends sized.

Definitely Generations sized, right? Like, Swerve and Windcharger and Groove and not the Legion size RiD has for some reason kept?

ImageThe RID Commander class are all just a tad bigger than the Legends. Just a tad.

... just a tad taller than Generations Legends or RiD Legends?

edit: never mind, just saw your picture. Helps a lot, thanks!

So basically the size of the old Cyberverse Commander class, but with 5mm hands.

So close to having the old Basic/Scout class size back. :(
