    Are these the first pictures of R.I.D. Prime figures? (ARE THEY IN STORES?)

    Are these the first pics of the USA RID editions?

    Someone in California is selling the Transformers PRIME R.I.D. and they have Hub Stickers on the bubble.

    I assume these are USA editions.

    The items are being sold on ebay now.

    I find it hilarious Cliffjumper's art depicts him pointing a weapon the toy doesn't have.

    I know how you feel. I am going to hold off. Hoping to find them out and about in the next month or so.

    Hopefully this means these'll start showing up in February! MY WALLET IS READY.

    Only the First Edition, not this version.

    First edition Cliffjumper does that. This one does not.

    They only showed up in the UK at one catalog store..that said I don't know if this person traded for them from that..which is very likely judging from the shipping charges [Don't let the item location fool you..]

    The odd thing is that they have the hub stickers. These have been covered or omitted on international packaging since the hub is only in the states. Could be stolen Chinese toys from the factory.

    Sent him a question asking about his source. Wondering if these showed up somewhere for him locally in California or if these are the UK imports, or something else entirely. Hopefully he responds.

    With a "supposed" item location in California, that's what I suspect.

    They're English-language only, so yep, those links are the U.S. editions. Everything seen from the UK so far has been Euro-multilingual packaging. I'm betting on early factory leaks, as well.

    Also, if you look at his completed auctions, he had a Wheeljack up earlier, but it was ended early "because the item is no longer available":

    I don't see him responding with anything useful. If he says something like "they're out locally in California" then he's shooting himself in the foot.

    EDIT: ... I take it back. Nice.

    and boom quick responder;

    Dear portudork,

    Toysrus

    - vheryan27


    Take it with a grain of salt, but possible RID stuff hitting Toysrus in California. If his ebay location is the same he found them then specifically Daly City. I for one will be calling my Toysrus this afternoon.

    Maybe these are due sooner than we thought...argos staff indicated a major restock in a few weeks.
