    Well well, those are certainly new! Looks like Soundwave will be returning in a new body! Nice blend of Prime and G1..

    Also Blurr has some elements from his Rescue Bots design built in. First Sideswipe gets a RB figure, and now Blurr gets a RID figure.

    What!?

    Okay that Bludgeon looks freaking sweet! I assume he is a repaint of Blastwave or whatever that Autobot in the next wave is.
    Skywarp I saw coming once we got Starscream, really hope Sunstorm, Acid Storm, & Thundercracker follow suit.
    Blurr looks to be heavily based on his Rescue Bot appearance from the stills I've seen. Never watched the show but I like what I see of this figure.
    What the hell is with Soundwave? He looks so Fall of Cybertron and I like it.
    Twinferno... Eh, I'll probably pick it up.

    I was honestly hoping to see Cyclonus in the Warrior size class. Oh well so going to pick up all those Warriors, still need to get the Bisk Wave though AND the upcoming one with that Aerialbot looking guy and G1 Drift. I can't seem to quit this line! I love it to much, the Warriors are so much fun!

    Can't believe I think this, but Deluxes Soundwave and Twinferno look pretty good.

    Legion Cyclonus uses that craptastic Windblade arm design, so that's a disappointing pass.

    Are the combiner things the two-pack figures like Grimlock and Sideswipe?

    Sound wave reminds me of Animated and WFC. And the combiner thing with Lazerbeak is pretty neat too

    I hope we'll get a deluxe Cyclonus down the line as well. :D 

    It's great to see that this line still has life.

    RiD Blurr looks to be partially based on Rescue Bots Blurr. I am amused. The rest of those are pretty awesome. Twinferno is super weird in the best way.

    Not quite, the main figure is a bit bigger than with those sets, and you plug the Mini-Con into their vehicle mode to activate a Stealth Force mode.

    I'm surprised that there will be two deluxe Twinfernos from different lines that will be on pegs within so close of a timeframe. I thought Hasbro didn't like doing that, ESPECIALLY with such an unknown (by today's kids) character.

    A lot of these I was so not expecting especially Twinferno.

    Not that surprised we'd see Bludgeon from Blastwave since the design was a big giveaway anyway. Same goes for Skywarp.

    I can tell Blurr resembles a lot like his Rescue Bots design even though I've never seen Rescue Bots. Looks cool and the fact that his color scheme is a little G1 based is a nice touch.

    Soundwave's very WFC/FOC inspired looking which is funny since Hasbro did try to connect the games with TFP in the past despite them looking very different in their respective series. I'll admit I miss his TFP design since I think it's a more interesting take on the character but still this isn't bad.

    Twinferno was someone I'd hope to see on RID15 for some time now given that his status as a Monsterbot would fit in perfectly with the animal/beast theme for the show but him being a dragon inspired jet I was NOT expecting. He looks good and I like that he still has elements of his beast mode in both robot and jet mode but I wish he has his G1 alt mode. Then again who's to say he may not have that later on in the series? This does make for a good pre beast design for him if you think about it.

    Leigon Cyclonus looks decent though I hope he'll have a Warrior figure later down the line and if he does I can see him being a strong remold/retool of warrior Starscream.

    Bludgeon looks pretty slick
    I kinda dig this Rescue bots inspired Blurr, now excuse me while I digibash this into a Morbot
    Soundwave looks proper Beefcake
    I have no idea what in the Nine Hells Twinferno is supposed to be, but I love it (he actually kinda reminds me of the Helldrakes from Warhamer 40000)
    Yay Skywarp? now watch Hasbro do something bonkers like make an Acidstorm or Sunstorm instead of Thundercracker

    In Transformers Rescue Bots, he is constantly hopeful that one day he will be selected to "The Bee Team" (of RID) instead of The Rescue Bots. When Sideswipe from RID visited one day (chasing a runaway Minicon) he promised if Blurr showed his colors, he'll get a chance to work with The Bee Team. Looks like Blurr finally made it.

    I honestly hate this line, but I keep going back to look at that Soundwave.
    Yep, he looks pretty damn nice.
