    It hasn't!

    Not obvious from the photo if his wavemates Thermidor and Bludgeon were present.

    Some of the Combiner Force Warriors wave 3 have been "coming soon" on the Smyths website for some time......

    Transformers RID Combiner Force Warriors Class Autobot Twinferno - Transformers UK

    Transformers RID Combiner Force Warriors Class Decepticon Bludgeon - Transformers UK

    .....but Smyths have a history of putting up "coming soon" listings for things they don't receive! Case in point: The Warrior Bisk listing mentioned here has vanished!

    Still no sign of a Thermidor listing on their site.

    CF Warrior wave 3 has been seen in the Far East and Canada but not yet anywhere else, including the USA, and none of the usual online suppliers have offered preorders.

    EDIT: Thermidor & Bludgeon found as well: RiD Warrior Twinferno found in the UK!

    This is as far as has been shown for Warriors and is quite possibly the end of the line.

    I'd not count them out. SDCC was incredibly light on reveals, but we did see two more Crash Combiners, so we know that part of the line is ongoing with new molds. I still hope for a Warrior Saberhorn, personally.

    Hot dog! :D 

    I love the colors on these. It's too bad they haven't hit the States yet! :(  Maybe by August's reset?

    That Bludgeon mold is outstanding (the green Blastwave is too cool!), though it didn't impress much as Megatronus. A rare case where a slight retool actually improved the mold significantly, imo.

    I'm curious to see how RID Twinferno compares to TR Twinferno.

    I'd take any Decepticon they can do before the line's end. The animal bots were kind of interesting and different, so they really felt fresh and new.

    They're still available on HTS.com, if you don't feel like searching around. Wait for a coupon/discount weekend and you can pay around $12. Both are fun toys, despite the cheap plastic feel of this line.

    But personally speaking, I'm not sure why they even bother with the RID Warrior line. They seem to put so much more emphasis on everything else that I just wonder why they even make these Warrior toys. 1-step, 3-step... you can't avoid those toys. But these guys? :banghead:

    The Warriors had a dodgy start but have been top toys for the last 18 months/two years. Bisk is amazing, several of this year's are really good. I'll be happy if they do more and so will my son who's the main reason we started buying them after he caught the show on CITV.

    Hasbro should just go ahead and continue this subline indefinitely. They are quite good. I would love to see some homages though to some of the G1 combiner teams.

    Still really want that Bludgeon, but if the tlk line right now proves anything its that it takes forever for any of the toys to reach most areas of the u.s.

    Bludgeon, Twinferno and Thermidor have not been reported in the US yet. If you see them, please post photos.

    Damn, RID Twinferno is the last one I've been waiting for. RID2015 distribution has been such a clusterfuck though. Just piles and piles of one-steps and soap bottles at every store. It's even worse because even places like BBTS that usually come to my rescue were really spotty on whether they'd order waves or not.

    I bet he's gonna be a shelfwarmer anyway since he looks so plain in terms of transformation for a Warrior-class figure.
