Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Down_Shift, an entire wave of Transformers: Robots in Disguise toys - found by Cybertron.ca Xtreme987 user in a Toys'R'Us store in Ontario - we knew absolutely nothing about before have surfaced! This menagerie includes Deluxe Power Surge Optimus Prime in a deco that resembles Ultra Magnus in vehicle mode; a purple repaint of Scorponok called Paralon; and most surprisingly of all, an entirely new mold Starscream based very much on his G1 incarnation. All 3 are packaged in the "Clash of the Transformers" subline of packaging that has been previously exclusive to Toys R Us stores. Check out the image below and tell us what you think in the forums by clicking here.

Paralon we got a look at before with his BW Scorponok-esque head, but that Starscream WOW! His Vehicle Mode wings appear to be forward-swung like the Animated and WFC/FOC Starscream designs. The shoulders also kinda remind me of the coronation shoulder pads G1 Screamer wore in the 1986 movie.

I can't quite make out the logo, but unless I'm mistaken, they're part of the "Clash of the Transformers" subline. Either that, or a new TRU-exclusive line.

A new deluxe Starscream that's mostly in actual Starscream colors? Yes please! Paralon looks cool but I would've liked to have seen a color other than purple on it. Or at least another color mixed in that doesn't necessarily have to be green but green would've worked too obviously. Optimus looks ok too but I would've rather have had Ultra Magnus shades of red and blue in there instead of Optimus Prime shades to go with that white. Is there even a difference in the reds between the two? If not then there should be.

Also, is it just me, or does Starscream look to actually have good paint apps?
Considering the paint apps in this line have been a bit... ah... crap; he looks really standout from what I can see. I mean okay yeah, this is a blurry image and maybe it'll be a horror story once I actually see it, but right now he looks beautiful.

Screamer does look pretty good, though his proportions kinda remind me of Fracture's.

Maybe they're the same body type but with different Alt modes.

TFW has (somewhat) better pics, which seems to show they actually bothered to make Starscream's crest red this time around.

I very highly doubt they'd make an entirely new mold in an entirely new design for a pre-existing major character in the continuity without intending to use them. At the very least we might have assumed Ratchet might not have been in RiD despite his toy because it's just a remold and hey, it's a nice nod to TFP fans; but this? Naw. No way Screamer gets this much treatment and doesn't get to be in the show. Especially when there's a villain vacancy to be filled up as of Season 2's ending... and the whole corrupt Cybertron council rejecting autobots thing seems to echo Screamer's role in IDW.

So to sum up...
-G1 Starscream body in general
-Animated Starscream alt-mode
-1986 Movie Coronation shoulders
-TFP Starscream head

How many more references could you possibly put in? At this point they'd have to give him cyber key powers, a birdface and the ability to combine with G2 Dreadwing if they wanted to reference more screamers.

Why not make him intangible (Energon), make him a giant (Cybertron/Galaxyforce), give him wheels (Alternity), and give him mini-con pegs? And make him a Pretender? And um.. oh make him an Action Master. And uh... what else am I missing?

Wow, finding those must have been like a return to the pre-internet days! Helps that Starscream looks really cool too.

I've got to wonder who's really supervising the RiD product line these days. The toys and show (app too, unless I missed an update that Starscream isn't in it) are almost entirely off-the-rails out of sync at this point.

given screamers design there, and the way the last season of R.I.D. ended, makes me wonder if they are going to try and parallel the comics/combiner was toon. i.e.: starscream survived an obvious beatdown from predaking and has now taken over cybertron somehow.

What's funny to me about that is that this weirdly seems to be a thing now. Like, at first it was IDW having a fresh new idea and taking Starscream's vies for leadership to the absolute fore - and now not only the machinima, but the main animated series is doing it. Makes me wonder if it'll start to define him as a multiversal character and concept as much as betraying Megatron has.
