    £20(roughly $26USD) price point is a bit annoying though.

    Cheers,

    £20? Seriously? And I thought it was annoying that Titan Return Deluxes were being sold for that much.

    The third exclusive, the repainted Power Surge Optimus, is visible in one of those pictures too!

    £20? Arseholes to that!

    I wanted Starscream but I'll wait to see if they ever make it to clearance.

    Just wait for the non-exclusive version to come out, I'd say. I'm sure it'll turn up in a later wave.

    Aren't they part of the 'Clash of the Titans' line which TRU have as an exclusive?

    Yes.

    Right now RID has no further Legion or One-Step Changers waves scheduled beyond the ones already out at US retail, and it doesn't seem like there are any more Warriors planned beyond the Power Surge Optimus Prime/Windblade/Scorponok wave (which is currently out in Singapore, Hong Kong, the UK and Canada) and the Ratchet/Scatterspike/Bisk wave.

    There haven't been any further "leaks" via the RID mobile game either, so it's not implausible that the general retail RID line is mostly done at this point.

    Isn't their supposed to be 1-2 series's on TV? I'd be pretty surprised if they have a second season and no more figures, also pretty saddened as people are really under appreciating these figures

    By the way, does anyone happen to have the EAN barcode for these (UK release specifically)?

    (Should be the same one for all three Warriors.)

    What a piss take! I dare say these will still be shelf warming in five years time like the FOC data discs...

    The FOC Data Disks were awful awful toys, while these TRU RID figures aren't the greatest, they aren't bad by any means. More likely they might sell more once Season 3 finally starts airing.

    It's more the price than the quality of the toys. Yes they are exclusive, but the are double the price of the non exclusive warriors that toys r us are currently selling. They were £9.99 the other day.

    Someone at Toys R Us is smoking crack or something as they come up with the prices on their exclusives...

    Scorponok mold is not that bad for 20, but the Starscream mold is like worth a fiver, its so thin and bendy
