Care of several TFW2005 members, we can report a bunch of new sightings from the Combiner Force subline of the current Robots in Disguise line in the UK.
First and foremost, TFW2005 member Collectoron reports that the Robots in Disguise Combiner Force Warrior Wave 1 has arrived at UK retail. They were spotted in the Melton Mowbray Sainsbury’s. This is the assortment which gives us a white, IDW inspired version of Drift, a wider released version of Starscream, who was a Toys R Us exclusive last year, as well as new characters Stormshot and Blastwave.
Second on the back of this, TFW2005 member returner reports spotting the first assortment of Combiner Force branded Legion figures in the Tesco in Hednesford, with a further sighting by TFW member Stripes at the Tesco Extra in Streatham. Combiner Force Legion Wave 1 adds two new molds into the mix – Springload and Starscream. It also offers repacks of the previous Legion versions of Optimus Prime and Grimlock.
Lastly, TFW2005 admin Sol Fury spotted the Robots in Disguise Combiner Force One-Step Changer Wave 1 in the High Wycombe Sainsbury’s while on the hunt for the aforementioned new Warrior assortment. This assortment includes a repack of the Blizzard Strike Sideswipe, and new versions of Optimus Prime, Drift, and Bumblebee.
(Sol did not find the Warriors. Sol bought fudge instead. Sol likes fudge.)
