    So I've completely lost track of what wave we're on with RiD, but I think this is the second of the Combiner Force branding. Either way, I found the wave with Soundwave, Blurr, Skywarp, and the new Windblade at a Toys R Us in Greenwood, Indiana.

    I found these at a local TRU in South Jersey this past weekend and grabbed all three. Didn't realize they hadn't been spotted at retail yet.

    I'm going to wait for Toysrus.com to get them in stock.
    Then I order the figures and two months later my local Walmart gets the wave in and can't get rid of them for another two months.
    Still going to keep an eye out for them when I unload the truck these next few weeks.

    Soundwave is one of the better RID molds, period. His shoulders are a bit wonky, but overall he's a really solid figure and a standout for the RID line.

    Blurr, on the other hand is the first Warrior Class figure to disappoint me. I'm glad to have them both, don't get me wrong, but I was surprised by how much Blurr didn't win me over.

    The head just doesn't look right, the backpack is ridiculous, the transformation is painfully simple (Soundwave has a rather complex transformation.) and he feels like he's lacking paint worse than any other RID figure. (I'm sure he has more paint than I'm seeing, but still...)

    The one good thing about him? Outside of his fists being visible, he does a great job at not having his robot pieces be visible in vehicle mode.

    If you can get both, get both, if you can only get one, you must walk away with Soundwave.

    Biggest concern... that Skywarp is constructed better than the Starscream. The legs on my Starscream are so loose, he barely stands up on his own...

    Concern? That sounds like an improvement and a reason to get Skywarp.

    I dunno about the head, it's basically a more detailed/robotic and less-race helmet-ish take on the toy version of Rescue Bots Blurr, who this guy actually is. He looks decent to me, and a hell of a lot better than most of the first few waves aside from Drift.

    Still, Soundwave looks amazing, even though I wish he was scrawnier like he was in Prime. The general rule for RID Warriors seems to be that even the best Autobot toys aren't even close to being as good as the good Decepticon toys... And pretty much every Decepticon toy that isn't Steeljaw has been pretty fantastic.

    Yes concerned, that he may be as poorly constructed as the Starscream mold. I hope he has been improved. As of late, the re-paints that I've purchased had been built better ... Finger crossed!

    The Skywarp I picked up yesterday definitely feels better than my Starscream. Skywarp's hips do seem tighter than my Starscream, who suffers from fairly loose hips.

    I dont think Twinferno is included in this wave. Tfwiki has him listed in the next future wave, alongside Bludgeon & Thermidor...
