    I havent seen this elsewhere so ill assume its new, but i might be wrong. Got this set at Kmart, its a set of licensed RC cars made to look just like Bumblebee and Barricade, though Barricade has the wrong markings, no ramming bars and no lights. The BB is really accurate though. Weird knockoff kind of thing, especially sincwe they are licensed, weird that GM would do that when Hasbro owns Transformers, and these are obviously ripping that off. Anyway, theyre cool!

    Yeah, I have to agree, there's no way they're not trying to cash in on the movie characters. Even the nameplates on the packaging look TF-esque, like they could be on a classics or Ultimate BB release. I guess you could say they're knock-offs of the licensed X-mods rcs. I have the Barricade one, and I love it.

    there are plenty of other colors they could've made the Camaro, but since they went with yellow and black stripes, I've gotta call it as leeching off the popularity of the movie.
