    Glad to see Legion Bisk is getting a repack in the combiner force line. We skipped his original wave here (and jumped straight to combiner force) so maybe we'll get this one

    Also rather weird that Windblade appears to be getting a only slightly altered repaint adding yellow of all things to her paint job and yet they aren't adding any sort of sub-name for her (eg: energon boost bumblebee, gold armour grimlock, etc)

    Nice to see the packaging artwork for Blurr, SkySledge, StormHammer and Skyhammer too.

    Plenty of cool things coming to the RiD line :) 
    Out of these I'm wanting to get legion Bisk, Legion Blurr, Warrior Blurr, Warrior Slywarp, Warrior Soundwave, Warrior Stormshot, and maybe Blastwave and the Skyhammer set.

    Still a few older RiD figures to track down still too. But plenty more to look forward to as well

    Windblade certainly is different....But somehow even less accurate than before.
    I don't like getting the same mold twice to begin with, so it had better look amazing if it wants my money.

    Wow Hasbro does love their Grimlock...

    Bet you anything we'll get f***** on the Warriors again this wave. They'll pack plenty of Windblade & Grimlock's but screw you over on Soundwave, Blurr, & Skywarp.

    Definitely waiting on Toysrus.com on those guys. Still can't even find Blastwave and Stormshot :mad:

    Can't wait to see more of the Hyper Grimlock and One Step Sideswipe. A bit odd it's taken them three tries to get his design down. And I am all for a new Grimlock that looks more like the show model and, dare I hope, may fit in with the Warriors.

    I didn\'t think they could give me another reason to complain about Windblade\'s terrible paint apps, but they clearly did.

    Who said \"splash some yellow on her chest and knees, that\'s how she looks in the show\"?! WHO?!

    *ahem* At least Takara got it right (the first time too!).

    Why do they call these \"combiner force\" when most of them don\'t even combine? Also, about how big is warrior class? My eyes are telling me legends, but my mind is telling me deluxe

    Warriors are equivalent to deluxe class figures. Though of course their size varies a bit from figure to figure.

    [​IMG]

    As for why they are called combiner force. It's likely more for the cartoon where combining seems like it will be MUCH more present. Not sure why the combining isn't being implemented more in the toys. But at the same time. I'm glad that we're still getting figures like the warrior class that aren't hampered and hindered by some sort of gimmick.

    Honestly I like the RiD toyline way better than Titans Return of Combiner wars
    Partially due to not having that strong a connection to G1 and enjoying the current cartoon. But also because I like the figures being able to stand on their own without a gimmick weighing them down. Plus I've never liked the idea of headmasters. (Not that it has stopped me from buying TR stuff. Just makes them less fun to me than RiD stuff)

    I spy with my little eye something beginning with Takara Windblade.

    Finally, someone else who recognised Hasbro's poor attempt at a paint job. Real shame, as I usually find Hasbro fine. Just not this time.

    Yeah, Windblade is the Takara version. Could not pass up the easily superior paint job on her. Ratchet and Scorponok are Takara too. My RiD collection is a mish-mash of Hasbro and takara. Wanted the Takara Starscream. But given my order with HLJ is STILL listed as active even though screamer is discontinued. I don't like my chances. May be going with Hasbro now unless HLJ magically fulfils my order
