    Since I have not seen this anywhere else yet - found some RID Combiner Force Warriors at a TRU in Glendale, AZ. Alpine Strike Drift, Stormshot, Blastwave, and a few re-releases of existing figures with the updated branding/packaging.

    Wasn't planning on getting Strongarm because of larger shipping prices to get a new one. Thank goodness for repackaging.

    Stormshot looks good. I hope the reviews say the same

    Just as soon as I find the Bisk Wave another set of three come out that I need to be on the lookout for! Ugh and I still haven't found the Titans Return Hot Rod wave either.

    I really like Stormshot's robot mode, but I can't say the same for his jet mode. I'll just wait for in hand pictures to decide if I want him or not.

    Oh, and it appears that Starscream is in this wave too. Glad he'll be in other places besides TRU for people that don't have one near them.

    Why is Bludgeon named Blastwave and is an Autobot? :X

    The figure is sexy anyway, but... Why?

    Would you really be concerned bout that? In a later wave that mold will be used for an actual Bludgeon anyways.

    I'm interested to see reviews of Stormshot. I hope it turns out to be a good toy. RID Warriors have been very hit or miss with me.

    I know this show hasn't gotten too deep or too adult with its plot lines yet, but how dope would it be if Blastwave goes dark/crazy and becomes Bludgeon??
    Especially since that animation model on the box is similar to Bludgeon, but a little different. Of course the toy would be the same, since Hasbro's a bit of a cheapskate company...

    I think I may play with my toys that way anyway :lol :thumb

    Blastwave looks ok, but I also already have Megatronus and if anything... I'll wait for Bludgeon.

    I'll obviously get Bludgeon when he comes out, but I'm torn on Stormshot. The mold looks nice, and the colors are fun... but why am I waiting for a new deco? Something about the white-ness makes it feel like there's less paint than there is.

    Storm shot is ok nothing really intriguing about his transformation, but his weapon can be configured to look like a few types of guns
