    Cool, it would've been nice if they came out.

    Yeah I saw that it was a render, still looks good.

    Picked up these two at the RetroToyCon.
    Added Groove to Defensor.
    Devastator went under the Xmas tree.

    Are you saying they had they had these two that are circled too?

    Or just the ones you have pictured?

    I really wish the rest of these damned things would come out. I WANT that red and blue Optimus, and I'm sure others out there want to complete the 3 different sets too!

    As far as I know (and I've been paying attention to these since they were released), the two you circled were never spotted at retail.

    They **may** have been released overseas, but never made it to retail in the U.S..

    They had the white Grimlock, not sure about Sidesweep, maybe it was the black one. They only had one of each, the ones in the 2nd picture are the ones I took away...

    If it was definitely the white Grimlock, then maybe the next wave of these figs are out or coming out. It'd make a bunch of people on this thread happy if you'd be able to snap a pic of White Grimmy and post it on here ;)

    As surprised as I am to say this, I'd actually love to see more of these armor pieces in different colors. My idea's to get enough blue parts to make an armor for Class of '84 Ultra Magnus and see how that turns out

    I am so done with kre-o...but if I found those four RiD versions in the armor up colors, I'd be so back in.

    I don't know how well these plastics used in Kre-O react to dye, but you could dye a set of the blizzard armor blue. The white should take the color fairly well.

    I'm really loving the resurgence kre-o seems to be having via dollar general. Just found two RID2015 sets there, the Sideswipe and Longarm sets.

    I think they meant Strongarm as that was one of the RID sets that showed up at DG.

    Ah. Okay.

    Btw, some Chinese markets are releasing bootleg Battle Changers of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. Better yet, there are three Bumblebees in their first wave, and each of them have their own deco and slightly different features.
