Apparently the final wave of RID Warriors hadn't arrived in America yet, and with sightings this week of just Twinferno, it sounds like they missed the wave with Thermidor and Bludgeon, and have skipped over to a revision wave that repacks older toys in place of those two.

The Walgreens exclusive 2-pack of Clones has finally been found in-store in America for US$18.

It seems that a number of the store exclusive movie toys were really late showing up in America, and still haven't shown up there yet, including some of the Walmart exclusives... considering that they were released in Asia in June.
Some have now been found at discount chains, suggesting that Walmart have cancelled plans to release them at all. (which doesn't matter to us much here, as we don't have Walmart, or these toys expected here)

Deluxe Movie Cogman (wave 4) has just shown up in Canada and England... so there could still be hope for us here. And if it does, it contains all of wave 3 as well, which would catch us up nicely, after being warned by Hasbro Australia a few months back that we might not see anything other than wave 1 here.

RID 1-step Soundwave has been found at retail in America... which I had totally forgotten about, as I thought that Heatseeker/Strongarm was the final wave.

I thought RID Legion Twinferno was already out in America... or I must have missed it. It's out now.

That leaves the last two Crash Combiners as the final RID toys to be released... IF, they aren't axed like most final toys of a toyline.

RID Warriors Bludgeon and Thermido have been found at Walmart in America... some time after the Twinferno showed up as a revision wave without those two Decepticons.

It seems that Cogman ended up just about everywhere in the world except here... as it has now been found in South America (in Columbia).
It's pretty expensive there though, at about AU$60.

The final RID toys - Crash Combiners Optimus/Grimlock & Saberhorn/Bisk - have been found at US retail (and were released in Asia as well).

Apparently this is a first for the UK - the second wave of Cyber Battalions have been found, which have Prowl and Jetfire, with re-released Optimus and Bumblebee.
