Hasbro has managed to sneak the odd toy here and there past us, getting something to retail without ever giving a hint in advance even in our modern, highly informed age of fandom. And the latest on this track is an exclusive Warrior Class assortment found in Toys R Us in Ontario, featuring recolors of Power Surge Optimus and Scorponok (as Paralon), but also the evidently new-mold Starscream! A previous report
suggested Starscream might find his way to the RID toyline, and this could be the first sign of that coming true. Click through for photos!
Hisashi Yuki has posted the boxart for Unite Warriors Computron to Twitter! The eighth entry in the Japanese counterpart to the Combiner Wars line, Computron is deviating quite significantly from the Hasbro edition of the character, using different molds for three out of the four limbs and introducing a new head and chestplate to the Scattershot mold. Meanwhile, Yuki is teasing the next team of Unite Warriors - and Robots In Disguise just might get some recognition in its anniversary year after all. Keep reading!
Zap2It has listings pages now for an additional four episodes of Robots in Disguise's second season, taking up out to the seventh episode. But it seems that we may be seeing a change to the airing schedule of the show. Don't get too excited though - there's no sign that the timeslot itself will change, but it does appear we may start getting two episodes per weekend, following a week off after episode three. This may change in the meantime, but right now we're looking at first run airings both Saturdays and Sundays. Keep reading for titles and dates!

The official Transformers Facebook page took a moment today to repost some of the Meet The Cast videos that had previously appeared on Youtube, and in the process dropped in that the cartoon's third episode would be hitting Cartoon Network in the US tomorrow morning. Those early risers out there can find the show at its regular timeslot at 6:30am Eastern, but for most of us, it'll be off to set the DVR. Either way, make sure not to miss it!
Mr Chaos has reappeared to pass along more information from an unspecified "supercenter" retailer's product listings, focused on the Robots in Disguise line. He notes that the Warrior wave following the current Optimus and Drift assortment will feature Jazz and Sideswipe with a subsequent wave carrying Fracture and Megatronus, who is noted as being a distinct item from the 29.99 pricepoint one we reported on several weeks ago. There's even more than that, so keep reading to find out the rest!
