    Was Warrior Class Power Surge Optimus Prime (the red version, not the TRU exclusive white version) there as well? He should be in the same wave.

    Yes, Warrior Power Surge Optimus Prime was there too (He is behind Quillfire in my picture). I will try to take a picture of him if I make it back to the store today. The case ratio I saw was:

    Power Surge Optimus Prime X 2
    Scorponok X 2
    Windblade X 2
    Quillfire X 1
    Thunderhoof X 1

    Woah! Thats the first I've ever seen Quillfire and Thunderhoof at retail...

    Anyway, yeah I don't expect these two to be hitting up this area for a LONG time, probably going to wait for Hasbrotoyshop on this one.

    Yeah, that's the case ratio listed at Entertainment Earth, Big Bad Toy Store and BBCW Distributors too:
    Transformers Robots in Disguise Warriors Wave 7 - Hasbro - Transformers - Transformers at Entertainment Earth
    Transformers Robots in Disguise Warriors 2016 Wave 03 - Case of 8 - Transformers Robots in Disguise 2015 RID Warriors
    BBCW Distributors :: Pre-Orders :: Transformers Robots in Disguise Figures - Warriors Class Figure Assortment - AS0C

    Weird, those two (and Blizzard Strike Drift) have become very common at German retail at this point...

    I think they've been out at US retail for a couple months now, I remember ordering them on Hasbrotoyshop back in April or May I think and a short time later someone found them at stores. But for the most part I've only seen the first two waves at retail, saw the third wave once, and just recently a bunch of stores finally got the Fracture wave. (Distribution in my part of Ohio is VERY shitty)

    The distribution of the entire RID2015 line has been horrible in the U.S., if I'm not mistaken. I never saw Warrior Class Thunderhoof or Quilfire at retail, and I'm sure very few people saw them at retail.

    It just seems like not a lot of care is put into the RID line anymore, kind of a shame since I love all the Warriors I've gotten so far. That Windblade looks nice but I'm afraid I won't be seeing her in stores anytime soon.

    Saw these at my local TRU here in South Jersey yesterday. Didn't realize they hadn't been spotted yet. I also saw Leader Blaster and Powermaster Prime at the same TRU, which was the first time I've seen them in stores, too.

    Wonder if these hit stores near me first or my Amazon order actually starts processing.

    There are stores that actually have RID Deluxes? I'm surprised. Virtually every store around me has had empty pegs for most of the year, or wave 1 remnants.

    Thanks! Just writing from the heart. Love that Scorponok, one of my favourites of the whole line.

    I just saw these in my Walmart here in Canada, didn't know these were so sot after. I'm not getting scorponok cause I have paralon, and I don't want prime and already had a quillfire from awhile ago. Only one I wanted was windblade.
